As a blogger I have a very privileged opportunity to test out several beauty products , so i’m never without something to use every day . I’ve testing out so many different product combinations, but with Dry skin it can be the toughest challenge trying to keep your hydrated. I’ve come up with a Nighttime Beauty Routine that keeps my skin soft and moisturised!

 My nighttime beauty routine

My nighttime beauty routine for dry skin |

Let’s be real, I wear concealer , liquid foundation  and also powdered foundation on a daily basis .. I know you’re probably thinking jeez that’s A LOT Abbi . …But with an uneven skin tone and the fact that my skin would dry out after 10 mins of outside air; I Think it’s totally necessary. THE  SKIN BARRIER IS NEEDED Y’ALL!

So let’s break down each Product I use every night to remove that baked cake off my face, and how I keep it hydrated all night!

Remove makeup

I start with the KIKO SOFTENING TONER. This product is ACE at getting off makeup!  It’s a light spray that I throw onto a cotton pad and simple wipe the makeup away!  It certainly doesn’t completely clean my face , it just eliminates those top makeup layers. I’ve found that it does a great job at removing waterproof mascara too!

Pre cleanse

Now it’s time to prep my skin for that deep cleanse . Ill use the ARK PRE CLEANSE. It’s so simple to use. The product is a thick clear liquid , almost the consistency of a quality shower gel. Simply place it all over your face , (I like to rub it in a little as it adds in moisture to your skin)  then wash off with lukewarm water.  


Now this next product is a surprising favourite of mine! I was given the full range of products by AIME, at a blogger event , and let me tell you … I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS SCRUB. Generally  I suffer from clogged pores in my T-zone and have to unclog every day! I really don’t like to use pore strips because they cause the skin on my nose to crack  or peel . Please excuse the gory details . So after using this product my pores are clog free for roughly two days at time .. BUT HEY THAT’S BETTER THAN EVERY DAY RIGHT!?

The AIME EXFOLIATING POLISH is actually a creamy texture like lotion , with small red micro-beads to help with the light skin scrubbing. this will leave my face feeling soft and smooth all day.


Next I’ll use a bit more of the Kiko toner and reduce the low moisture level at this point.  Plus this is the perfect opportunity to give myself a full face wipe down incase I missed a bit of makeup here and there .



LASTLY I apply a the HEAVEN DREAM OIL SERUM for final moisture . I opt for an oil products because it has 5 hours of my sleep time to sink into my face and make sure my face is extremely moisturised throughout the night! . Also prepped for my morning routine !

ALRIGHT nighttime routine is complete!

Let’s remind ourselves of the dry skin no more formula!

  1. Oil based MAKEUP REMOVER  or TONER – get rid of any makeup you may have on your face! The last thing you want to do is sleep with makeup on … you’ll be punished with a breakout the next day!
  2. PRE CLEANSE – with an oil based product – Prep your skin for the harsh scrubbing it’s about to endure!
  3. Oil Based DEEP PORE SCRUB or MASK – get all of the dirty skin layers off while adding moisture to the layers beneath.
  4. OIL BASED TONER – yes again! Make sure there is no more makeup left on your face. This is your last chance!
  6. OIL BASED .. OIL .. a few drops will do the trick . ( I also recommend Drops of light and Drops of youth by TBS)

    I have a super dry skin, but I am also horrible at my night time routine. I would love to see a post about motivating yourself to wash your face instead of going to sleep. 🙂

    The best home remedy is olive oil and sugar mix those two together you have a sugar scrub..that would take away the dryness and flakiness on your face.
