Skincare Routine: Evening

Hey Everyone,
this is the second part of my posts on skincare you can see my 'Skincare Routine: Day' HERE! 
My skin type is sensitive combination, I have sensitive skin which means I have to be careful about what I put on it. As well as this I have combination skin which means I have dry patches as well as oily, and I am prone to break outs and hormonal acne! 

I only picked this up a couple of weeks ago and I already can see a dramatic difference in my skin! It looks brighter clearer and more healthy. I use this in the evening, by rubbing it into my dry face, massaging it in and then using a muslin cloth (which I wet with warm water) to polish away the makeup and product! This is great for sensitive skin and gentle enough to remove eye makeup and mascara. I don't use the muslin cloth every night as I try not to over exfoliate, instead some nights I wash it away rather than polishing my skin.
I only recently started using toner and I can honestly say I don't know why I haven't been using it all along! I close my eyes and spritz this all over my face, then wiping it away with a cotton pad. I especially love that you wipe this away (people who are not a fan of toners because of alcohol content) this means the alcohol isn't sitting on your face, but it still gives the benefits of a toner and takes away any last residues of cleanser.
Tip: Putting this in the fridge gives a cooling effect, and is perfect in the morning and summer to awaken the skin!
As I said in my 'Skincare Routine: Day' I  have started to get into anti aging now and that called for an eye cream! I particulary love this one as it isn't too thick, but is really moisturising on the eye area! Its also very affordable!
3. Spot Treatment: La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo
This is my favourite spot treatment, I apply this morning and evening before moisturising.  You can apply it all over the face but because I have combination skin (some areas are dry) I like to just apply it to my acne prone areas! This is great for prevention, as well as a spot treatment. Find out more about what I use to keep my skin clear HERE!
Again this comes into my new anti aging kick... I use a serum before applying moisturiser to gain the full benefits of the moisturiser, and to help keep my skin healthy and hydrated! I don't yet have the full size of this as I have been using samples, but I will definiately be purchasing it very soon. It is a product I now can't do without!
4. Moisturise: Oilatum Natural Repair
My favourite night time moisturiser is Oilatum. This cream is a little to thick of use during the day, so I apply it before bed and when I wake up in the morning my skin is hydrated and brighter! Because I have combiniation skin I sometimes have very dry patches, and although this is a little to heavy for day wear it really helps with this problem when applied at night.

Once a week I apply this REN mask which also acts as an exfoliator, it has really improved my compelexion and smoothed my skin.

Once a week (if needed) I also exfoliate using this REN face polish, the microbeads are small and delicate which prevents you from doing any damage to your skin whilst exfoliating! I try not to over exfoliate, as this can be drying and damaging for the skin. Also using cleanse and polish daily means I already gently exfoliate most days, I therefore only use this when needed!

Do you use any of these products? What is your favourite Evening skincare product?
