The night time routine I wish I could follow...

I've been watching a lot of get ready with me and night routine videos on youtube and have been astonished to find that other people's lives appear to revolve around beauty and unrealistic glamorous routines. Honestly, these youtubers appear to spend hours on social media, making ten cups of tea and carrying out lush beauty treatments after they get home from work/school. I myself arrive home with exhausted eyes and change from my wrinkled school uniform into pyjamas and school socks, dump my ten kilo bag on the floor and collapse ungracefully onto my unmade bed in a bellyflop whereby I fall asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow.

I was thinking though, if I lived in a perfect world, had nothing to do but pamper myself all day everyday, I would have an elaborate night time routine whereby I undergo a ten stop process to moisturise, soothe and freshen from head to toe. This is what I would do...

- Clean & Clear Morning Burst Facial Cleanser
- Arbonne RE Advanced Regenerating Toner
- B liv Shrink and tighten serum
- B liv Off With Those Heads serum
- Luminesce Night Cream
- Blistex Lip Conditioner

I'm already pretty good with my skincare and never go to bed wearing makeup however it usually stops at the simple steps of a quick cleanse followed with some moisturiser. Ideally I would chuck in a few other treatments too.

- Luminesce Essential Body Renewal moisturiser
- My New Skin balm
- Bio Oil

In terms of beauty, my body is easily the most neglected area because I just forget! I have some great products listed above, I just need to use them more often and consistently!

- Vitamin E formula mascara
- Salon Confidential R:04 Repair Ends Mender

Last of course is hair, another area in which I am rather careless. My hair is in desperate need for moisture and focus on the split ends. I also won this lash treatment in a giveaway and feel that I should probably put it to good use because who wouldn't want better looking lashes?

But....I just can't see all of this happening! Life is too jam packed with a million other more important things to get done before completely crashing and I just don't think I could squeeze in this elaborate routine too.

For now I guess I'll be sticking to my dodgy ways...


  1. Haha I know what you mean, sometimes I don't have the energy to go through my whole skincare routine. But I do so anyway because my skin will be rubbish the next day.
    I remember you talking about B.Liv way back in the day! :)

    1. Skin routines can get absolutely crazy! Ah yes, the B.liv products I have are actually amazing, I'm just too busy/lazy to use them. x

  2. ahahahha! that makes two of use. I might even have everything lined for me to use, but the lack of energy speaks louder. I have to say that I do it every now and then. I'd like to try the clean & clear face cleaner and the B.Liv products


    1. So true! I am loving the Clean and Clear cleanser (it is my second bottle) and the B.liv products work wonders but are a little more on the expensive side! x

  3. Ha, I know exactly what you mean. Looking after a toddler all day, and often getting a poor nights sleep with him waking numerous times at the moment due to teething, by the time I go to bed, I am so tired that there is no way I could go though all of that. In saying that, I always cleanse before bed and use toner, serum, cream and eye cream. That's just a must. Love the Luminesce products too. Haven't tried B.Liv but they sounds interesting.

    1. Oh my gosh, it is hard enough looking after myself let alone another little person :) The Luminesce products I've tried are so great! x
