Bedside Essentials

When bedtime calls these are the few essentials that I call on time and time again...

A no-brainer is a simple glass of water to keep me hydrated in the evening hours. Talking of hydration, the hot weather that has been gracing our Anglo shores this week have had me reaching for my Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic more than ever, not just on my face but as a refreshing spritz to ward of any muggy moments.
After cleansing, I reach for my Pixi Glow Tonic (unfortunately mine doesn't have a label) as my acidic toner. It gently removes dead skin and leaves my face looking and feeling brighter. For my second toner I've been using the Clarins Daily Energizer Wake-Up Booster* which smells lovely and fresh and has nice and gentle ingredients which work well on my sensitive skin.
Recently I've been trying the Clarins Daily Energizer Cream* to moisturise which I've really been enjoying. I love the whole Daily Energizer range as they are targeted towards the 18 to late 20's age group to "keep bad skin days" at bay and ensure "young skin looks clear, fresh and glowing and feels soft and smooth every day." So far I've been loving the results and have noticed my skin responding well but I want to give this range a full and lengthy test run before I do a more in depth review.
I love to keep my Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream on my bedside table as I prefer to use it in the evenings and give it a good chance to sink in without preventing me getting on with my day-to-day routine.
Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream has been a firm favourite of mine since childhood. I keep it on my bedside table ready to perform some serious lip therapy overnight to make chapped lips a thing of the past.
Finally, I've been keeping my lime True Grace Candle on my bedside table. It looks too pretty to burn but it smells so fresh and zesty and it's lovely scent drifts over every now and then *inhale* which is always a refreshing surprise.
So that's my bedside cluster, what makes the cut on your bedside table?
