What’s on my bedside table

I am one of those girls who love their evening cleansing and moisturizing rituals. Nothing is more relaxing for me then to take off the slap, have a hot shower and wear my most comfy pajama.

Usually all my beauty treatments are taking place in bed, while watching a movie or a TV show. Then i start using my night moisturizer and eye cream, use a body butter on my legs and arms, slap on the eyelash treatment, massage my legs to prevent varicose veins, use a heel cream (just in case, hate unkempt feet), hand moisturizer (wash and sanitize my hands a lot) and finally the lip balm.

Phew! Quite a lot, but love every minute of it 🙂

Have a look at my night time box:

and in detail:

From Left to Right:

Compeed Overnight Craked Heel Repair – hmm…not mad over it. Yes, you can see a difference in the morning after using it, it makes the feet smooth and the whole heel appearance better looking. But, and there is a big BUT: my soles are incredibly itchy since i started using it and during the day, i find that it gets rubbed off – like is just a superficial layer and it comes off. Its very annoying, looks like dirt.

Dr Organic Royal Jelly Leg and Vein Cream – talked about it here.

The Body Shop Body Butter in Brazil Nut and Satsuma – talked about them here. Yes, still have loads left i only use them on my arms and legs. Stopped applying on my decolletage as it brakes me out.

Mavala Double Lash – this is a recent purchase, got it two weeks ago and use it alternatively with the Loreal Lash Serum. Too early to pronounce myself if its good or not, so far it doesn’t leave a sticky residue in the morning like the Loreal one and didn’t irritate my eyes.

Lancome Secret de Vie moisturizer and eye cream. This is very similar to the famous Creme de la Mer, is based on marine extracts taken from the deepest and purest sea waters. Secret de Vie is meant to be used just once a year as a complete regeneration treatment, preferably in the spring time or autumn. The cream is meant to stimulate your skin to auto-heel itself at maximum capacity, restores radiance and of course – firms and softens the fine lines.

I use the eye cream every night since February and i only used about half of the jar, the texture is just so special that you only need a pea size to do both eyes. The moisturizer itself i use it maybe 4 nights out of 7, alternating it with the La Roche Posay Effaclar K.

Result wise, i cant pronounce myself in terms of wrinkles and firmness (im only 27) but i can definitely see a difference in the texture of my skin and overall appearance. It just looks more luminous in the morning and what i noticed most, it heals much faster. If i have an irritation or a little scar, it heals faster then usual.

Loreal Lash Serum – i have been using it since launch last year, i can see an improvement in the condition of my lashes. While it didn’t make them grow faster or longer, my lashes look very conditioned and healthier. Its like they are better nourished and shinier.

La Roche Posay Effaclar K – my HG product, enough said. You can read about it here.

Sally Hansen Cuticle Cream – i suffer with very dry cuticles and this seems to help keep them under control. Also the vitamin content strengths the nail, so all good.

Avene Hand Cream – still love it, talked about it here.

Carmex original lip balm – wake up to super soft kissable, lips in the morning.

And my favorite hand mirror, got it in Paris four years ago. I still keep it in the velvet pouch, i treasure it too much.

Oh and a tweezer 😀


I think this could be cool as a Tag, what do you think? Or is it just me who hoard products on my bedside table?

Love and kisses

    Excellent post mrs! I wish I was as organised as you are at night! My ritual is rubbish, but am now inspired to try harder 🙂 Love the sounds of those creams but am afraid of eye creams, I need to get me some cuticle cream because mine get so dry. I would do this tag if I actually had any kind of ritual hehe It would be, wash the face, go to bed, remember to put on moisturiser if you can, ni night 🙂

    Oh, I love seeing what other people have on their night stands! Fabulous! I don’t think Effaklar likes me, does nothing for me and even ….think it breaks me out :(! Will have to insist on it though, it has to work, it has to work, it has to!!!

    Off to read your DR Organic review! See ya laters!!!

    I love my nighttime rituals as well, although I shower and moisturise in the morning.

    I have a several heavier lip balms, cuticle creams, and hand salves on my bedside table. I also have a big selection of face masks in the bathroom along with nose strips for afterwards.

    Being a girl is great isn’t it? 😀
