A Couple of Bedside Heroes

There was a time when I'd hop into bed still with make-up on, or if I could be bothered I'd get it all off quickly with a face wipe; fast forward a few years and my night-time skincare routine fills me with possibly more joy than it probably should, and it's really down to a couple of products that are making all the difference to my skin.

Trilogy are probably most well known amongst the beauty blogging community for it's Rosehip Oil, but it's really the Rosapene Night Cream that stands out to me. I've been using this since around Christmas, and it's possibly my favourite night moisturiser. This is packed full of some of the best anti-oxidant oils; rosehip, almond, avocado, acai, with Goji berry and Manuka honey, to really aid the skin replenish and regenerate over night. Whether it's dry patches, blemishes, or dullness, this little pot sorts out any ailments overnight.

It's a quite a nice thick cream which feels so soothing and relaxing to apply, and a little really goes a long way. Which is good, because at £28.50 it's not cheap, but I've been using a small pot since Christmas and I'm only just at the bottom, so it should last quite a few months.

After my Botanics Organic Facial Oil running out, I decided to have a little upgrade to a more expensive version. I've fallen in love with the Antipodes Manuka Honey mask, so I thought I'd try out their Divine Face Oil. It comes in a little glass bottle with a handy pipette applicator, so I put a little drop on each area of my face and massage into the skin. Again this has wonderful ingredients inside, such as rosehip and avocado oil to really hydrate and replenish the skin overnight. It feels so lovely working this into the skin, and whilst it doesn't sink in immediately, it doesn't feel tacky or uncomfortable on the skin. Sadly the scent isn't the nicest, but the effect it has on my skin is so worthwhile, the scent doesn't bother me.

I really don't know how they do it, but both these products make the biggest difference to my skin. Blemishes are soothed, redness is reduced, and my skin looks so much brighter. I wouldn't be without either of them, and the days of just removing make-up and being done are long gone, it's serums, oils and moisturisers all the way for me now.

Have you tried either of these? What are your bedside heroes?
