Hello fabulous folks. Today I will be sharing my night time skincare routine. I tend to switch up my specific products regularly so that my skin doesn’t get use to the same thing and then causing the product to not work as effectively. For my nighttime routine I use the Korean method of a double cleanse. The first cleanse is specifically designed to break down makeup, dirt, grime, etc. from the skin. Then the second cleanse is to get deep down in the pores and remove anything that was left behind during the first cleanse. These are the products that are currently in my routine. Now like I said before, the specific brand changes but the type of product and the skincare steps stay the same.
Instead of makeup wipes or micellar water, Which I fill causes me to pull on my skin and I don’t like that, I like cleansing oil, balms, or gel to oil. Right now I have been loving the Boscia cool cleansing oil (Sephora $10-$32). It smells so good and doesn’t irritate my eyes when I’m breaking down mascara. It gets even the most stubborn makeup. It doesn’t leave a film on the skin. this can even be used as a single cleanse if you have normal to dry skin.
With this cleanse I go in with a cleanser that doubles as an exfoliator. I’ve been repurchasing this one for a while because it is so good. It is the Altcheck MD exfoliating cleanser (found at Kohls). I first I didn’t think I would like this cleanser because it is a cream cleanser but I love it. it has a really gentle exfoliator. I doesn’t foam so it wont strip the skin. Leaves the skin soft.
I use a toner to bring balance back into my skin, and also to prevent breakouts. I choose a toner with acne medication, which my skin loves salasylic acid. My favorite affordable on is Formula 10.0.6(find at ulta $5.99). It really gets in those pores and help combat any breakouts.
I don’t use a treatment everyday. Glycolic pads I will use every night for about 3-4 days in a row and then give my skin restoring time of another 3-4 days. I have the Bliss incredi-peel spa strength glycolic resurfacing pads (Kohls $49.00 for 30 pads). These will make your skin tingle but it goes away once you add your moisturizer. These help with improving texture on the skin and dark spots.
For my night time moisturizer I like it light but hefty at the same time. Lightweight on the skin but hefty with the moisture. This is when I like to use face oils combined with a light moisturizer. This gives everything all night to soak into other skin and then I wash off any remainder n the am. Since I don’t have to worry about putting any makeup on top, which could cause some slipping, this allows my skin to get enough moisture to wear my body wont have to produce more causing oily skin My combo as of late has been the Aveda all sensitive moisturizer (thus is a sample and I can’t find a price online)mixed with Sculpt 100% argan oil (TJ Maxx $9.99). This combo sinks right into my skin without any greasy feeling.
I use two products under my eyes because this is the thinnest skin on your body and can getdry very easily. When you under eye gets dry, it will look wrinkled. So I use a serum and a moisturizer. For serum I love the Pur tone up total eye fitness (Kohl’s $37.00). This serum tightens the under eye. Then I top it with Aveda Tulasara wedding masque eye (mine is a sample but the full size is $55 and. Am be found online aveda.com). This is intense moisture that leaves your eyes bright and well rested the next morning.

Hello folks!!!! I have been gone for a really long time so the best way I know to come back is to show you products I have used up. My goal this summer was to use up all the half empty items I have in my stash. I wanted to get through a lot of stuff cause there’s no point in having tons of half used products crammed in drawers. and rankly it’s just a waste of money. Also it helps me to not buy more of the same things. So I put mot of the products in categories because I use a lot of the same things just different brands. Now warning: I have a ton of goodies so lets get started.
I enjoyed all of these cleansers. The equate daily cleanser is compared to clearasil daily cleanser and it is one of my favorite cleansers. the Olay facial wipes are perfect for travel. I can’t travel without them, the top box is combo/oily and the bottom box is sensitive skin. They fit perfectly in a sandwich bags and no worry about spilling. The Olay total effects has light exfoliating beads that I loved for everyday use. Not abrasive at all. Also doesn’t foam, which takes some getting use to, but your skin doesn’t feel stripped or tight after washing. I would repurchase all of these again. All of these cleansers except for the sensitive skin has salicylic acid in them which is great for blemish control.
I have been repurchasing the Mary Kay toner since I was in high school, which was a long time ago. It helps clear and prevent blemishes. The Lancome pure focus is perfect for controlling oil. It has a mattifying power at the bottom of the bottle that helps you stay matte and keeps your oils at bay. The H2O toner was just okay. Nothing special. It has sea salt in it which helps keep pores tight.
I’ve learned a while ago that gel moisturizers are best for combo/oily skin during the day. I enjoy cream cleansers at night so that they really do the job while I sleep. I don’t need all that work during the day because I will turn into an oily mess. The beinfait night creams are my favorite night time moisturizer. They have the perfect amount of moisture and I wake up with baby soft skin. The beinfait aqua vital is a gel moisturizer for the day. It smells amazing and it’s my holy grail moisturizer. I didn’t like the boots shine control lotion because it didn’t control my shine or give me enough moisture. Even though I have combo skin, I still want the proper amount of moisture so to privent my skin from creating unwanted oil throughout the day and leaving me a greasy mess. I used to use the Mary Kay time wise moisturizer in high school and it did okay, so I thought, so I decided to give it another try. Now that I know more about skincare, I’ve realized that this moisturizer isn’t for my skin. It leaves a film on my skin that causes me to get oily fast. No Ma’am!!!!! I also love the cinique moisture sure. It’s the same concept as the Lancome aqua vital both are gel moisturizers. WIN WIN
these two together are a match made in under eye heaven. Absolu yeux is an eye serum that restores the thin skin under the eye. It has no moisture, just concentrated treatment. I then add the high resolution eye cream on top which seals in the serum and leaves the under eye glowing and soft. I would love to repurchase the absolu jeux but it is very expensive. I’ll definitely be saving up for another one though.
The Altchek night serum and the Lancome visionnaire claim to do the same thing, even skin tone, lighten darkspots, demise the appearance of pores. The Visionnaire really showed a difference in my skin. It has great anti aging properties in it and gives my skin a really healthy look. The Altchek serum took longer to show a less expressive difference. Not my favorite.
I love the argan oil moisturizer. It smells amazing and leaves me moisturized a lllllll day (the body wash is also amazing). I lave the spray and go to moisturize my back because only an elegant can reach their back and even they have a bit of a struggle. lol
This is my holy grail body wash!!!!! The honey almond is a cream wash and the lavender rosemary is a gel wash. I got the rosemary because the honey almond is hard to find around my way. They have other scents. My absolute favorite is mango lily but I can’t find it anywhere in my area, I did order some on riteaid.com (yup sure did). I did find the sea salt one that I want to try next.
I love these to have in my purse. They both are great to have to moisturize throughout the day.
I’ve had this foundation for ever!!! It was discontinued a few years ago but I would still find them on ebay. This is a really mice foundation. It has a whipped consistence with a powder feeling finish. I’m guessing that they were competing with the revlon color stay whipped. they should have kept this one on the shelf a little longer.
This has been in sooooo many of my posts from favorites to empties. i absolutely love this conceler for face highlighting. It’s amazing and i use it all the time. I’m working on one now and have two more in my backups.
All of these mascaras are in black exept for the firs one. The FYEO, for your eyes only, is in the color royal blue. This is a really nice mascara for a pop of color on the lash. It is cruelty free. The clinique high impact is a really nice mascara that I will repurchase. I didn’t like the primer side of it. the clinique bottom lash mascara has a tiny brush which is perfect for my tiny bottom lashes and outer corner lashes and keeps the mess minimal. Estee Lauder double wear zero smudge mascara….. I HATED IT!!!! It made my lashes crunchy, hard, brittle, dry. And it took all the kings horses and all the kings men to get it off and I still had raccoon eyes in the morning!!!! I have never disliked a product so much. I couldn’t even finish it. Now Lancome grandiose is my holy grail mascara. They make my short straight lashes look like falsies!!! Amazing formula, doesn’t smudge and easy to remove at night. The Lancome Oscillation is another one of my holy grails. the wand vibrates allowing you to coat every lash even if you didn’t know it existed.
I like the elf brow gel. keeps my brow hairs in place. The Lancome brow pencil is the best I have ever used. The formula is very smooth and stays all day without fading. The It Cosmetics YBBB is an amazing pencil as well. very easy to use and the taupe color matches all brow colors.
I like the evian facial spray to use before I tone my face. It takes away the tightness in the skin after washing. It’s also nice for when you are out in the sun and need a little cool down. Mac fix+ is my holy frail. It has glycerin in it which keeps makeup for looking cakey. I also love it to give my foundation a glowing finish, to foil and help my shadows and pigments pop. This product is multi use and I can’t live without it.
Well folks that’s all my empties for now. Thank you all for stopping by and peeking into my trash. Any questions please comment bellow and don’t forget to share, like, and subscribe
