My evening skincare routine feat. NUXE, Superdrug and Decléor | Beauty

 You may have seen my morning skincare routine here, so I decided I would follow on with my favourite evening skincare products that have readily made it into my evening routine. It's taken me a good while (talking years!) to get myself into a skincare routine, but I'm enjoying it, my skin is enjoying it, and I'm remembering to keep it up too!

Superdrug Naturally Radiant Renewing Night Cream
I picked this up by chance really. I was looking for a non-expensive night cream and just happened to stumble into the Naturally Radiant range at Superdrug. Their products are reasonably priced so for £3.99 I thought I would give it a go and see how I got on. Normally I can be sensitive to products but this has worked wonderfully for my skin, and doesn't leave it greasy come the morning. I can't say I've noticed any kind of difference to my skin, but it definitely feels a little more hydrated and I like to use it, so for the time being will keep on!

NUXE 24 Hour Soothing and Rehydrating Fresh Mask
Now although I know this is meant to be a face mask, it does state that you can rub the cream in as an extra hydrating moisturiser, so I've been using this on alternative evenings and I've noticed such a difference to my skin. My skin feels firm, plump and radiant, and the morning after my skin isn't left feeling greasy like it normally is. I received this in a beauty subscription box so decided I would have to use all my products up before purchasing any new ones, or repurchasing any I love, but this is definitely on my repurchase list. The only off-putting quality is the fragrance, it's incredibly strong but quite fresh, and wears off after a little while.

Decléor Ylang Ylang Night Balm
If you remember seeing my blog post from the Spa Naturel Fitness day in Sheffield, you would have seen I had a wonderful facial with Declèor products and brought a couple home for myself. I have a habit of using this products every other night, alternating with the NUXE 24 Hour Soothing and Rehydrating Fresh Mask for extra hydration. You only need a small amount of this balm as it goes a long way, but definitely works. I normally apply all over my face and neck, but pay extra attention to my under-eye area as this needs the most work. I was a little bit weary of trying this balm at first as it can be a little greasy and I was worried this would congest my skin and leave it more greasy however, it sinks in really quickly and leaves no residue. I'll definitely re-purchase this when it runs out however, at around £19 it can be quite pricey.

I'm really happy with this current evening skincare routine. I'm taking extra care to ensure that my skin is hydrated at the moment as my under-eye area can be incredibly dry and look very patchy. With this routine, not only am I allergy-free, but it's working for me without leaving my skin greasy the following morning. It's a win-win situation!

All these products have been paid for by myself, but I absolutely adore them and wanted to share them with you all in case you were interested in updating your skincare regime, or trying something new.
