Contrary to most people, I love removing my make up. I really enjoy that moment when my face feel fresh and clean again after a long day. That relaxation, that moment when I am just me, comfy at home, in my pijamas. My face finally breaths and so does my skin. The stress goes away with the mascara. After that it’s all fluffly bed, a good reading and sweet dreams. It’s a ritual that I never miss. Lately I’ve been using these two products and they have made this bedtime routine even more pleasant. The Pure Melt Cleansing Gel is really smooth and gentle with my skin. This gel turns into an oily formula on the skin, but don’t panic! It doesn’t leave that greasy sensation, quite the opposite. After the gel, I’ve been using the Capital Lumière Night Cream, a luxurious rich formula that restores luminosity. Since glowy skin is my beauty mantra lately, this seemed the most appropriate solution for my night skincare. It smells amazing, it leaves my skin super nourished and makes me go to bed with the promise of a “lit from within” glow by morning. Talking about sweet dreams…
First of all, let me say that I’m a total Clarins fan. I use their products since I was 20 and, well, my skin is gorgeous. It sounds pretentious but it’s true. Really. Go buy them.
But I have to admit that Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery line is amazing. I’ve read wonders about it so I decided to give it a try, although I was feeling guilty: first time in 10 years that I was cheating on my beloved Clarins! The Midnight Recovery Concentrate is perfect for those who, like me, have a sensitive skin and live in countries with awful weather. I apply it every night and my skin feels relieved and nourished immediately. And oh! the Midnight Recovery Eye! I swear that you will wake up younger. I couldn’t believe it the first time, but yeah, those eyes were mine. It really smooths the under-eye area, it really does!! It’s wunderbar!
