So, this is the routine that I go through on days when I really need the whole shabang.
Removing the Make-Up
I don't wear make-up everyday but when I do I need a product that gets the job done easily. At the moment I am using the Camomile Cleansing Butter from The Body Shop.
Here I usually get to choose between two options. The first one is a cleanser with a gel consistency that foams up nicely, when I apply it (for example my Skin Food Honey & Black Tea Jelly Foam) I use it on days when I feel like my skin needs a deeper cleanse especially when I wore more make-up than usual on that day.
My second option would be a creamy cleanser, that leaves my skin feeling nourished and soft, because sometimes I just need that little bit of extra moisture.
In general I don't think that it is necessary to invest in high end cleansers - at least for me. They are simply a medium to wash away dirt and old skin cells. The main work is done by the products that stay on the skin for a longer time.
This step is optional, because honestly: I often forget it. This step isn't even necessary, but when things get reall fancy in the bathroom my routine would not be complete without a nice smelling, alcohol free toner to finish up the cleansing process.
At night a rich moisturizer is the way to go for me. For a few weeks I've been using the Body Shop Vitamin E Overnight Serum-In-Oil, which I have been extremly satisfied with. The smell is pleasant and I need only a little bit. Afterwards my skin feeld nourished and soft.

This routine is something that works for me and my combination skin, so every product might have a different effect on you.On some days I even skip this routine completely and go to bed without even washing my face. Gross, right? It is a true blessing, that my skin is so forgiving.
