 [Disclaimer: this blog post is written in collaboration with but all words and thoughts are my own. This post also contains items that had been gifted for a previous review.]

Ever since I moved to Australia back in March, I've had more of an interest in skincare products and have enjoyed trying different brands. Probably because firstly, when my skin breaks out from using new products I don't have to see tons of people I know on a daily basis like back home, and secondly because I'm wearing less make-up here so I don't have foundation clogging up my pores. That being said I still don't have a very complicated skincare routine. These are some of my favourite skincare products that I like to use before bed.

Cleanser - Sukin Purifying Balancing Cleanser 

This has probably been my favourite and most used brand in Australia. All their products are natural, Australian made and don't come with the hefty price tag. My skin is a mix of combintation and oily and this helps remove excess oils and leaves my skin feeling really fresh. I also find it aesthetically pleasing that the gel is black because it contains bamboo charcoal. 

Toner - Sukin Oil Balancing Clarifying Facial Tonic 

Admittedly, I had gone a couple of months without using a toner. Now that the temperature has heated up here there's nothing better than wiping your face with this at the end of the day after I've been at the gym, walking around in the sun and sweating. This product contains Willowherb with has anti-inflammatory properties and helps eliminate impurities. 

Moisturiser - Sukin Sensitive Facial Moisturiser 

Ok I'm obsessed with this - the cream smells like japonesas (custard donuts). The cream is fast absorbing and contains rosehip, seseme and joboba oils. It does what it's meant to do, moisturise the skin! 

Face Scrub - Alya Skin Pomegranate Exfoliating Scrub (Gifted)

I use this product twice a week - Wednesdays and Sundays usually. I might like it that extra bit more because the packaging and the cream is pink too. It smells delicious, pomegranate is my favourite fruit so if I could use this everyday I would. It's not too harsh on the skin and it leaves your face with a nice fresh glow after use. 

Eye Cream - Nakin Eye Cream Complex (Gifted)

This eye cream is weightless and spreads on very finely. At my age (25) I have to start looking out for those signs of ageing so I have implemented using an eye cream at night time!

Lip Balm - Nakin Lip Treatment Balm (Gifted)

My lips are always dry AF at night because 99% of the time I'm wearing lipstick during the day, so this adds the moisture right back in and doesn't leave a sticky finish

Light Therapy - Dermatec Personal LED (Gifted)

I won't go into too much detail here as I have written a separate blogpost all about the Dermatec Personal LED and the benefits of light therapy. The great thing about this product is that you don't need to stand in front of the bathroom mirror whilst using it, you can just move it around your face whilst you're lying in bed watching Netflix or reading a book.
