Date Night Collaboration: Your Steps for Beautiful Skin

Date Night Collaboration is a 5 piece blogging collaboration between myself, Amy's Annex, Curled Fantasies,  Little Red and Little Miss Average, it has been very exciting to work with these amazing women and the fun we have had e-mailing and tweeting has been a joy. We have all taken an integral piece that every woman finds important to their preparation for an amazing Date Night.

Amy's Annex is going to have you all sorted with Makeup

Little Miss Average with Hair 

Then finally myself with your steps to beautiful skin. 

So to get yourself sorted just click on above links and off you go.

I hope you all enjoy our collaboration and would love to hear what you think about it. xx

The Night Before:

1. Exfoliate with Sanctuary Body Scrub so your ready for everything else to happen.

2. Shave your pins & underarms with Johnson's Baby Oil for that smooth close shave that leaves your skin amazingly soft and smooth.

3. Moisturise with Vaseline Spray & Go but if you have time maybe go for something a bit more heavy duty depending on your skin type. 

4. For your date night be yourself even if you are a friend of Casper but if you really really want a nice healthy glow I would recommend Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan so make sure you follow the instructions by exfoliating and moisturising in the lead up to your tan.


1. My new favourite at the moment is L'Oreal Skin Perfection Micellar Solution, this dissolves your make-up, tones and smooth your skin.

2. So now add your moisturiser, I am really loving L'Occitane Precious Cream at the moment, and don't for get to add an eye cream like Benefit It's Potent.

3. If you do have any spots I am using Vichy Normaderm Hyaluspot and find it really good for calming those pesky spots

4. So get your shut eye everyone needs their beauty sleep even with the excitement of your date!

Date Night:

1. Now your day makeup will be taken off and would recommend L'Oreal Skin Perfection Micellar Solution once again which will take of your makeup from the day, and leave your face toned and smooth.

2. Follow with moisturiser L'Occitane Precious Cream for your face.

3. Moisturise your body once again with Vaseline Spray & Go.

For some reason I keep skincare simple on date night (I am married but we still like to have date nights when we can get a babysitter) I prefer to spend most of my time deciding on what to wear and like to spend extra time getting my makeup just right.

Now your skin should be in tip top condition and ready for your date, so best of luck girls, enjoy yourselves and most of all be yourself.

Just a Few Tips:
  • Know your skin type and what works for you.
  • Wash your hands before you do your routine that includes skincare and makeup.
  • Try not to touch your face much during the day this transfers dirt and bacteria around the face.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Never squeeze a spot.
  • Use warm water to open up your pores before cleansing.
  • Wear sun protection.
  • Try and build a routine of cleansing, toning and moisturising twice a day (morning & night). Exfoliate once or twice a week and treat yourself to a mask during the week.
  • Never Ever wear makeup to bed.
  • Never share your makeup or tools this can cause bacteria and spread from one person to the other.

I am in no way a skincare specialist this is just a routine that works for me and my skin type. These products may not suit you but are just there for example purposes only.


  1. Ahhh the trusty Micellar Water! Looks great hun! xx

    1. It's my first time to dabble with Micellar Water and really like it, i would say have plenty of cotton buds at the ready especially if you have heavy makeup on :) Still can't stop thinking about the Collar necklace that you had in your accessories i love it that much xx

  2. This is lovely, babe! You really went for it and have loads of great products and tips! I'm dying to get my hands on some of this stuff now for the next time I get a date night with my old man! You've done fabulously, hun! Super proud of you! xx

    1. Hi Laura, thanks for coming over a reading the post and commenting :) We are all guilty of it, even myself. I've only started to make sure that i drink more water and i have once in a blue moon forgotten to take my make-up off before bed (i once woke up with the cotton wool in my hand but never got to taking the makeup off!) xx

  5. This is such a great idea! Great tips & picks, off to read the other ladies' posts now x

    1. Thank you so glad you liked it x We all had so much fun with this and it was something completely different to do xx hope the tips come in handy for you x

  6. Great tips! Vaseline spray and go would have to be a top up moisturiser as i dont think my skin would be okay with just that. Really enjoyed reading this post and will have to check out the other bloggers involved too ^_^

    1. Thanks Brigitte for coming by and taking the time to comment. The Vaseline spray and go wouldn't be for everyone, my skin isn't so dry at the moment so it's perfect but when winter comes i will need my usual heavier moisturiser on top of the vaseline. Hope you found some tips for yourself. Thanks for stopping by and will check out your blog and giveaway xx
