Today I thought I’d share my night time skin care routine with you! Washing my face has been one of my least favorite things to do for a long time, but with the right products I’ve found that it can be a relaxing and refreshing experience. It’s those few minutes at night that you get to take for yourself where you can wind down from the day. The first thing I do is use my Pur~lisse cleanser, which unfortunately I am almost out of! I received a sample of this cleanser in an Ipsy bag over the summer and I fell in love with it; so much so that I asked for the full size bottle for my birthday. You know you’re getting older when a face cleanser is on your birthday list. This cleanser does such a nice job of removing makeup that I find that I rarely have to use a makeup remover when I use this. It doesn’t dry out my skin and is calming as well. The ingredients include blue lotus, white tea, soy proteins, sea silk, and lupine peptides.
On days I haven’t worn makeup I’ll use my Simple Micellar water to cleanse my face. The micellar water is gentle and calming and also does a great job of removing makeup. After washing my face with either my cleanser or micellar water I’ll use my Simple Soothing Facial Toner. This is a recent purchase and so far I really like it. There’s no alcohol in the toner so I feel free to use it both in the morning and at night. Witch hazel is included in the ingredients as an acne fighting agent.
Finally, it’s time to moisturize. I use the Simple Soothing Eye Balm to reduce puffiness and dark circles and the Olay Night of Olay firming cream on the rest of my face. The Olay firming cream is also a recent purchase, and I’m absolutely in love with it. For only $6 at Walmart it is the best moisturizer I have ever used. My skin gets so dry in the winter and this cream is the perfect solution. It’s thick and feels luxurious to put on. It’s non greasy and I can feel it actually working. In the morning I wake up and my skin is so smooth and looks radiant and healthy. I think this product will become one that I use for years to come!
So that’s it for my night time skin care routine. Let me know what products you love to use at night!
