What's On My Bedside Table

I’ve been meaning to write this a while.  It’s kind of my beauty favourites but it’s what I use every day skincare wise.

Since moving I’ve been a lot more organised.  I keep everything in these Skubbs from ikea. 

For £6 you get 6 boxes 3 of each size.  They come in black, white and purple.  They are great for organising.

On my bedside table. I always keep a glass of water.  I get thirsty in the night a lot. I also have a soft cushioned brush. I’m trying to brush my hair more often as I figure it’s better for it.  I try to spend a minute a night brushing it. 

During the week I straighten my hair so I used to be lazy and just brush my fingers through it in the morning.  Also I have deodorant.  I use whatever is on offer and pillow mist.  Not convinced it works.

Things I use morning and night in my box are: My lush lip scrub. These are amazing.  I wouldn’t be without mine it makes such a difference and they are a bargain too. Lush whipstick lip balm. This is one of my favourites.  It tastes and smells amazing.  Lastly is my origins super spot remover. I do like this but I probably wouldn’t repurchase.  I thought it was brilliant at first but I’m going off it now.

For day cream I use Origins balanced diet.  You can see a full review of this in my save, spend, splurge series and for eye cream I use Origins Ginzing.  I really love this.  It’s light and great for mornings and brightening.

For the evening I use a lot of things. I’ll use either the Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus corrector or the Bioeffect EGF serum. I love both of these. Unfortunately the bioeffect serum is out of my budget for repurchase but I will be picking up the Clinique.  I really love this. It’s light on the skin and feels great.  

For night cream I’m currently using Origins starting over. To be honest I don’t like it. It feels like it sits on the skin rather than sinks in. It was a freebie so I’m trying to use it up. 

My evening eye cream is Origins perfect world for eyes. I love this. It’s thick and sinks in well. It’s perfect for night time.  As I’m oily skinned I don’t like it for days. I really love origins eye creams. I think Clinique wins on face moisturiser for me. 

Lastly at night I apply vaseline to my eyelids after my eye cream focusing on my eyelashes.  I’ve heard it’s good to make them grow plus someone I work with said she always does it and she’s over 60 and has amazing eyes so it’s worth a try.

Lastly I keep my inhalers and other medicine stuff I use regularly in there. It’s so handy having everything to reach. I really need to find my cuticle oil and put that in.

What’s your skincare must haves?  Do you use anything like vaseline on your eyelids?  

Love M

    I've heard that olive oil and castor oil is good for your eyelashes but I've never tried it! I keep meaning too though xx

    My skincare must have is the origins drink up intensive mask, I love it! I get really thirsty in the night too, so I always keep water beside me. It's such a pain having to get up to get water in the night! xx Almost Delightful
