My Evening Skincare Routine

Sunday, November 23, 2014

Ok the moment you've all been waiting for, my evening skincare routine! So lets not waste any time and get right to it.

Cleansing: I have been using philosophy's purity 3 in 1 cleanser off and on for about 10 years now. Idk whenever I stop using it I always go back to it because I haven't found anything else that takes makeup off super well and doesn't strip my skin. It really is the lazy woman's cleanser and I am a lazy woman.

Toner: Same as my morning routine, the Lush Breath of Fresh Air Toning Water.

Treatment: So this product is new to my routine and I will be doing a more in depth review of it next week but so far I'm into the Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Exfoliating Facial Pads that I picked up at Ulta. I've been wanting to add glycolic into my routine for the exfoliating benefits for a little while and after trying some pricier options I hadn't picked one up until these came along. So far I'm liking them.

Serum: After lots of research, referrals and procrastinating on picking up a night serum, I settled on the time tested Advanced Night Repair by Estee Lauder. My grandmother and mom have used this stuff and it continues to be a number one seller so I thought I would carry on the tradition. After 3 weeks I can't say I've seen all sorts of changes but I'm sure I'll know about 10 years down the road.

Eye Cream: I've had this eye cream for way longer than I'd care to admit (the top is even broken) but I'm using the Murad Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture for Eyes. I love the hydration from it and it really makes my skin feel cool and soothed, even more so than my "soothing" eye gel from my morning routine. But again, I'm still on the hunt for a good eye cream so suggestions are welcome!

Moisturizer: This is also a new addition that so far I'm pleased with. I'm currently using the Aveeno Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream I picked this up because long ago I used to use the Aveeno body lotion on my face because I loved the textured and loved even more that it was unscented. Yet this formula is almost nothing like the body lotion as it is thicker in texture, contains more firming and smoothing benefits, has vitamin B3 and is heavily scented. But I was looking for a night cream that was thick in texture and had some firming benefits and I found that in this product for under $20 so I'm happy.
