Clean Slate

IMG_3042I don’t remember the last time I went to bed still wearing my make-up. No matter how many drinks or how tired I am, I can only rest peacefully once the face is clean.

To remove my eye make-up I like Balea’s Augen Make-Up Entferner Pads (2€), a German brand available at DM. They’re fairly cheap and take off 99% of what I smeared on my lids. However for waterproof mascara, water-resistant liner and the likes I go back with my Clinique Take The Day Off Balm (30€). This doesn’t contain any perfume so it’s a great option for those of you with sensitive skin. A little bit goes a really long way and apart from it’s writing, this stuff doesn’t show any marks of usage.


The last step in my cleansing routine is my trusty old Bioderma Solution Micellaire. This stuff is as amazing as you have guessed from all the thousands of blog posts previously dedicated to this wondrous water. The 500 ml bottle is usually on offer in French pharmacies for 2 for 16€ and it is so worth stocking up on this gem. I’ve converted everybody from my mother to my best friend to using this and can not recommend this enough. It smells nice and does a great job at removing anything that is left on my face while not leaving it oily or dry.


Lastly, to let my skin drink up on moisture over night I use The Body Shop’s Vitamin E range. The Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-Oil (19€) is great and you only need a few drops to cover your face. It comes in a little pipette applicator and is thus very handy and good to dose. I pour a few drops on my palms and then gently massage them into my face, using whatever is left on my elbows. On days where I prefer a cream I chose the Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream (17€). I decided to purchase the little version before fully committing and so far I’m preferring the Serum to be honest.
