Overnight Skin Treatments

As it's coming to the end of skincare week I thought I would round things off with the products I love but don't use on a daily basis. I covered my favourite face masks relatively recently (you can click here if you missed it), so I thought I would focus on the overnight treatments I love so much they have to be mentioned.

Overnight Skin Treatments and Masks

Let's start with oils and first up is The Body Shop Vitamin E Overnight Serum-In-Oil. It is slightly thicker than traditional oils, so it leaves the skin feeling intensely hydrated and nourished. It sinks in quickly and doesn't leave the skin feeling greasy so can be used either with or without moisturiser. Personally, on days when my skin is feeling dry and dehydrated, I like to use a lightweight moisturiser afterwards as it locks in the hydration from the oil. This is the most budget-friendly of the hydrating options I own, but it still works wonderfully and leaves my skin without a dry patch in sight.

Evening Skincare Routine

Part 2 of skincare week has arrived, who's excited?! If you missed my morning skincare routine you can check it out here. Have you read it now? Great! Then lets move onto my evening routine.

First up is the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water which I use as my first cleanse if I have been wearing makeup throughout the day. It is really soothing and removes makeup well without drying out my skin. I really don't like removing makeup with a cleanser and my hands, so I will always go in with this on a cotton pad before using a traditional cleanser to clean my skin. If I have been wearing heavy eye makeup I like to use the Botanics Soothing All Bright Eye Makeup Remover as well because it deals with waterproof mascara and liquid liner slightly quicker the Micellar Water.

Morning Skincare Routine

It's the beginning skincare week here on Beaut Honesty and I am so excited as I can talk about skincare all day. My skin used to be extremely dry, and I am sure an in-depth how I dealt with it post will be up soon, but now I have settled into a routine that works for me my skin is fairly 'normal' and slightly blemish prone around my nose and chin, however I do still get the occasional dry patch and/or oily forehead.

Topshop Beauty First Impressions

Surprisingly enough I have never ventured into the world of Topshop Beauty, mainly because it's not really a shop I like or go into very often (and after the appalling service I received I remembered why). But after reading some serious rave reviews I thought it was about time to give it a go, so here are my first impressions of the couple of bits I picked up.

Exfoliating Acids: What and Why?

I have always seriously loved exfoliating, so when I heard about acid toners I just had to get my hands on a few (yes I know Liquid Gold is an overnight treatment not a toner, but it contains acid so bear with). Many, many months later my skin is still benefiting hugely from these liquids and pads so I thought I would run through my favourites.

The Review: Naked Smoky

When the Urban Decay Naked Smoky dropped in the UK last Thursday I was waiting outside my local counter before the shop had even opened as I was adamant I was going to get my hands on this beauty. But now I've had a few days of thorough testing, was it worth it?

My New Cleanser Obsession

Decleor has always been a brand I have really trusted for facials, but before now I had never thought to try their products at home. It wasn't until my friends very kindly gifted me some vouchers to spend at a spa for my birthday that I saw the range and decided to give it a try.

The Review: Sarah Chapman Overnight Facial

Last week I finally squeezed out the last drop of my Sarah Chapman Skinesis Overnight Facial, it was a very sad day. I couldn't imagine my skincare routine without it (and I had saved up £10 worth of indulge points - see my post here about the best beauty loyalty schemes) so I hopped straight onto to pick up a new one, making me realise how much I love it and that it deserves a rave review.

Mini MAC Haul

For Christmas I got a voucher for a 90 minute Mac makeover and I finally got round to booking it 7 months later. Honestly, I was a little nervous after seeing a few people's bad experiences, but I have never had a problem at my local counter so hoped it would be okay. There was nothing to worry about as it was actually so nice; the woman doing my makeup was lovely and most importantly, she really listened to what I wanted and liked so I still looked like me at the end. Overall it was a great experience and one I would totally recommend. At the end I had £50 to spend (the redeemable money from the cost of the makeover) so I thought I would show you the products I picked up,

19th Birthday Haul

It was my birthday this month, which was so so lovely. I got to spend lots of time with friends and family and just have a nice rest. In fact as this goes live I will be spending the weekend with my Godparents, who do the best BBQ's in the world, eating myself silly and having a good catch up, I can't wait! So I thought I would do a quick run through of the beauty and photography bits I got for my birthday as these are some of my favourite posts to read.
