In the AM, I add a light serum before moisturiser. The Superdrug Simply Pure does the job.
In the PM, I'm not sure what the Nivea cleanser is like that you are using. Personally I prefer a cleansing balm (I use Clinique Take the Day Off Balm) and then second cleanse with a cream cleanser. I use the Nip+Fab pads too but the extreme ones (5%) and then I use the Ordinary Vit C stuff once a week. In my view, it's a bit harsh to use every other night. Your serum is the Buffet so that's fine. Depending on your skin type, you might want to add in some hyaluronic acid after the serum? Again, depending on your skin type, you might want to use a face oil as a final step if you need extra hydration and 'glow'? The Clarins Lotus oil is fab.
I have to be careful with the cleansers as any containing oil or alcohol break my skin out. My moisturiser - the aqua genius one does have hyaluronic acid so my hope is I’m covering all bases. I’ll remember about using the vit c one a week (skin doesn’t like anything too strong!) although am I right in thinking vit c products go off after a while?
