Anyways! A lot of you seemed very interested in the skincare products I use at night so I decided that I would do a full blogpost on my routine!

I've seen such a change in my skin since begining to use these products. Honestly, my skin has never been in better shape.

I used to get breakouts around my t-zone, but now I actually can't remember the last time I had a spot! It's amazing! Miracles do happen!

While I am not being paid to write this post, I recieved some of the products featured here in November at the #DeiseBloggers event. I have been using these products for months, and all views are my honest opinions. I will put a * beside the products I received. And remember, everyone's skin is different, and what works for me might not work for you, and vice versa!

So, here we go! These are the products I use to take off my makeup and keep my skin looking great before bed!

I've listed the products in the order in which I use them at night!

Garnier Micellar Water

This is the only cleanser I use to take off my makeup! After buying this I stopped using wipes, as it's just so much easier to use, and so much better for your skin. My skin feels clean and fresh after using this, something I can't say about wipes.

Dampening a few round cosmetic pads with the Garnier Micellar Water, just sweep it over your face. No need for scrubbing!

I have a much more in-depth review about this Micellar Water here if you want to have a look!

I got my bottle in Penneys (Primark) for only €4.50. I think it's more expensive elsewhere.

Nivea Daily Essentails Double Effect Eye Makeup Remover *

I discovered this product yeeears ago, and I've never looked back!

This is the only Eye Makeup remover I'll use!

This has to be the one of the best eye makeup removers out there.


Pour some on a cosmetic pad and wipe, don't scrub, across your eye.

I've already reviewed this fab product, and you can read my review by clicking here.

This retails for about €5, is available in most pharmacies. You can get it in Boots here.

Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Exfoliating Facial Pads

I love these!!!!!!!

My Holy Grail!!!

You know thoses bumps on your forehead? Mine are gone!

While it can take a week or two to see any major difference, these exfoliating pads do exactly what they say on the tin! My skin has definitely been resurfaced and looks a lot smoother. Makeup sits better on my face too.

When you begin using them I'd advise to only use them every second or third day, until your skin builds up a tolerence to them, as there can be quite a sting to them at the start. While you can use these twice a day, I think that that would be too harsh on my skin so I only use them at night. I sometimes take a break from these for a few days as well, just to give my skin a rest.


The pads are pre-soaked, so just sweep them across your face! Easy-peasy!

Top tip! When you've finished with your face, you can use the excess formula on your neck, the back of your neck and the back of your hands. These are the places that show age when you're older, so the glycolic acid will do wonders!

You can get these in most pharmacies and they range in price (depending on the shop) from between €12 and €18. I got mine in Sam McCauley's Pharmacy for around the €12 mark.

There on sale in Boots at the moment and you can get them here.

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Light Cream *

This product promises to plump and smooth dehydration lines, and I've found that it does just that for my skin!

I recieved this little 15ml sample pot at the #DeiseBloggers event back in November 2015 and I've been using it ever since! A little really goes a long way with this product, especially as I only use it on my T-zone - the area most susceptible to dehydration lines.

I found from the start of using this product that it really worked for me and did what it says on the tin!
I have quite a dry T-zone and beacuse of this I had dehydration lines on my forehead. However, since begining to use this product they have really reduced in appearence! Of course I still have days where I haven't drank enough water and my skin will reflect that, but by and large, this product has done the trick for me!

I will definitely be purchasing the full sized version of this product, once my sample runs out!!!


Taking a small amount on one finger, using circular motions, gently rub into the areas you want to target. (For me this is the dry skin of my T-zone).

You can get Vichy products at most good pharmacies.

A 50ml tub is €21.99 in Boots, and you can get it here.

Depending on whether I want a deep hydration or just something light, I will alternate between the next two products...

Ziaja Spa Marine Algae Active Firming Cream *

This is the night cream I use when I'm looking for deep hydration.

Deep Hydration Night Cream #ZiajaLove

I have become a big fan of the Ziaja brand, ever since I was introduced to them at the #DeiseBloggers event last year.
While this product says it is for 30+ skin, I use it anyway!
I'd use this product most nights for a deep overnight moisturisation. It leaves my skin feeling incredibly smooth and soft the next morning and it has such a nice, fresh scent.
This product can be quite heavy, as it is so moisturising, so I wouldn't recommend using it during the day.


Using your fingers, gently massage the product into your skin in circular motions.

Ziaja is quickly making its way into Irish pharmacies but meanwhile, you can get it online form for €6.99 here.

Nuxe Nuxellence Detox Night *

I love the way this product makes my skin feel - silky and luxurious.

This is such a luxury product in my eyes. It feels so lovely on my skin, and leaves my skin looking and feeling fresher. It is a detoxifying and anti-ageing night cream.
A downside of this product is how expensive it is! Because of this I use it quite sparingly (student problems), but everytime I use it I love the results.
This product is definitely a treat for your skin!


Twist the top of the bottle to reveal the cleverly hidden pump.
Using only a small amount of the product massage it into your skin at night.

Like I said above this is a luxury product and it comes with a price tag to match! You can get it in Boots for €49 here.

Boots Essential Cucumber Eye Gel

This gel has such a cooling sensation on the eyes.

This is another product that I've been using for years, and at only €2, it's a total bargin!

As most of you probably know, cucumber has great cooling properties and is very good for reducing puffiness around the eye area. This product does both of those things quite effectively!

The cooling sensation feels so nice after a long day on tired eyes. I always apply it just before I turn out my light to go to sleep.


Squeeze a small drop under each eye. Using your fingers, smooth the gel around your eye area: your undereye and lids.

You can get this from Boots for only €1.99 here. Boots have a 3 for 2 offer on selected Boots essentials at the moment to so make sure to pick it up!

So thats it! My Night Time Skincare Routine! I must reiterate that while these products work well for me, they may not work for you. It's all about experimenting with different products to find what suits your skin the best!
