Cleaning brush Amazon | Brilliant Brunette shampoo & conditioner John Frieda | Face wash and Moisturiser Simple | Micellar water Garnier | Liz Earle cleanse and polish here

It's only recently that I've created a night time skincare and haircare routine that seems to really work for me. My skin type is a combination of oily and dry making it ten times harder to find products to suit it and my hair get greasy quickly (so dry shampoo is my best friend). I thought I'd share with you a few products I seem to be using a lot of at the moment – the most recent purchase is the John Frieda Brilliant Brunette shampoo and conditioner purely bought because Superdrug had it on offer for under £3 each. I'm now worried that because it's so good, I'll be repurchasing and spending £10 on just two bottles of liquid – I'm stingy when it comes to beauty but this product may just be worth it! It's keeping my hair shiny and smooth even after day two of not washing it! The only expensive thing I have here is the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish and it is going to be in my life forever and always! I've just finished the travel size version (it was my mum's and I nabbed it) and loved it so much I've ordered the 100ml bottle. It really feels like I've taken every inch of makeup off after a long day and leaves my face super cleansed...and polished.

Before I cleanse though I, of course, take my makeup off (most of it anyway). I'm yet to find something that will get rid of it all (before cleansing) but for now the product I'm buying again and again is the Garnier micellar water and simply using a round cotton wipe to get into every single bit of my face. After I'm sure the majority is off, once or twice a week I will use an exfoliating cleaning brush and Simple face wash to give my skin a gentle refresh and get rid of all the toxins and skin that accumulate and build up after a few days. For moisturiser I turn to Simple again and a cotton pad wiping my whole face, especially the eye area for stubborn mascara marks, and it's left feeling clean and soft.

Hope this helped those of you who, like me, don't like spending a fortune on makeup (clothes are more ma thang as you know) and gave you some inspiration for your own night time skin and hair routine!

  3. The Garnier Micellar water is my fave. And the huge bottle lasts so much longer than anything else I've found!

  5. Do you feel that the Garnier Micellar Water leaves a film of sticky dryness on your face?

  6. Loved this post. Really nosy when it comes to other people's routines. Boots seem to have the John Frieda ranges on 2 for £6 a lot, that might help. Asda sells a a range called NSPA and they do a Cleanse and Polish style product (hot cloth cleanse I think its called) thats a fantastic dupe for the Liz Earle and packed full of essential oils and shea butter - and its only £6.00 :) xx
