My Current Skincare Routine - Day & Night


These are the cleansers I am currently in love with. Both absolute gems, but if I had to choose one then it has to be the EH cleansing balm. Pure luxury!

For the toning step I use the Pixi Glow tonic. It is an exfoliating toner, which helps to slough off the surface dead cells to reveal newer softer skin. As you can see it is a a very minimal packaging, each one of these is hand packed. I am looking to ad a hydrating toner to my routine like the La Roche Posay Serozinc, but that is only available in France or Ebay. So waiting for someone at work to travel to Paris!

I haven’t written a separate post on the glow tonic because I have not been able to single the effects from this one alone.

I never used serum products until I came across Hydraluron. This keeps my skin baby-bottom soft by helping skin absorb moisturiser that goes on top it even better. LOVE this stuff, an absolute miracle.

I have a couple of moisturisers in rotation. You know I like my Clinique DDMG and moisture surge. But I see myself reaching for the Ponds Age Miracle Day cream over everything else on most days. I love this stuff, it makes skin super soft and the anti-ageing bit is a bonus. It is affordable too!

For treatments I use two masks in rotation, one a clay mask and the other an exfoliating+radiating one. The masks of choice at the moment are Biotique Mud Mask and Ren Glycolactic Radiance Renewal mask. I use them once a week and both show instant results.

I would love to incorporate some facial oils into this mix.

Eye Cream
For eye creams I absolutely love Indeed Labs Eysilix. But I find that it makes the eye area a tad bit dry thereby disrupting the concealer from blending well. So on top of eysilix I dab a little bit of Clinique All About Eyes. This stuff glides on almost feeling like a primer. A piece of warning though, this stuff stings like crazy even If the tiniest amount gets in the eye!

I use my tried and trusted Barriedem Lip balm but I am slowly running out of it and on the lookout for something else. Let me know If you have any suggestions. 


Wash, Tone, Serum, Eye cream and Lips are all the same as my day time routine. The only things I change up are

I use the Ponds Age Miracle night cream. Love this stuff. Such a good product at a super-affordable price!

Intensive overnight treatment
Once every 2-3 days I use Alpha-H liquid Gold. I don’t follow it up with anything.
