Ready for the new week? I am! A highly requested blog post from you all has always been my nighttime routine, specifically skincare! If you have been following me for a while you know I sometimes suffer with insomnia so I am going to start working on a blog post tailored to that and the tips + tricks I've learned to sleeping and getting a good night's rest along the way. But today I will just be focusing on my nightly skincare routine. I am constantly changing up my skincare routine every few months, just because I enjoy trying new products and my skincare needs vary. I will always keep you all updated and share my routines and the products I love and trust!
The first step is that before I take a shower I wipe off my makeup, especially my eye makeup. Currently I am trying out the Olay Effects Wipes and the verdict is that while they aren't my favorite wipes ever (keep in mind I have super sensitive skin) I love the smell of them and my face does feel fresh after using them. They just aren't life-changing (if you get what I mean--Lol!) The second step to my routine is to wash my face well in the shower. I am currently using the Caudalie Instant Foam Cleanser. FYI- While in Europe I stopped by a Caudalie store and purchased a big pack of their products to try out so currently all my Caudalie products are on the travel-size, but I will definitely be purchasing them again! To wash my face I use the Clarisonic Mia2 Brush and I use the Deep Pore Head Brush. I love my Clarisonic! And I actually have a post on it, you can read it here.
Once I am out of the shower and dried off I apply cream on my body to help moisturize my skin overnight. If you follow me on Instagram, the other day on stories that sometimes I use Eucerin cream, specifically their cream tailored to Type One diabetic. Whenever my skin is really dried out this is my go-to cream, and I have naturally soft skin but ever since my type one diagnosis I go through phases where my skin can get really dry. My favorite cream of the moment is from Bliss. Not only is the scent refreshing and clean, but it is a really rich cream so it makes my skin baby-soft. When I put cream on my feet, I always put socks to really let it seep in.
The fourth step in my routine is my face creams, my favorite part! Currently I mix a combination of Laneige Water Sleeping Mask and either Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet or Caudalie S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum. I also just started trying the Laneige Water Bank Eye Gel, and so far I really like it but I will have to keep you all updated as I use it more. My other step is I apply a Lip Sleeping Mask from Laneige, that is amazing. I swear by it! My lips are softer and are not chapped at all.
If I have a headache before bed I will apply my Origins Therapy Peace of Mind On-the-Spot Relief on to my temples and it really does the trick! I get intense headaches/migraines so this is a lifesaver and I really appreciate that it is a natural alternative to medications, since I get them often. So this also isn't part of my night routine typically but sometimes I add some extra self-care and will put on a face mask. I am currently trying out Sephora's Clay Masks and I have to say I am impressed so far, let me know if you all would want a blog post on them!
Also featured on my nightstand/skincare tray (btw mine is sold out from Target but I linked .a similar one below), is a can of Caudalie Grape Water, which I use when my face feels really dry or after a workout / Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Cream (scent: Focus), which I apply in the morning / and the last one is random, but special to me it is a little shot bottle of Tequila that my brother Nicholas gave to me on my 21st birthday because he wanted to give me my first legal shot, but instead I decided to keep it as a memento / I also have a little candle because what is more zen than a lit candle?
Let me know what you all think about my nighttime skincare routine and if we use the same products! As always I have linked all of the products down below so they are easy to shop and/or check out.
