Face Time

Now how many of you have a skin care routine that you proceed to do on a nightly basis? I do! I am totally OCD when it comes to my night time face care ritual. Although I do have the occasional breakout here and there I feel as though I have finally reached a point where I have found my personal skin care balance. Even though I am always looking for new products, tips, and tricks, this is what is working for me now.

Step 1:

The first thing I do before anything is remove my eye make up with Renewal eye make up remover. Even though it is a Rite Aid store brand, I love this eye make up remover because it is not greasy like most and really wipes away all eyeshadow, mascara, and eyeliner in a breeze.

Step 2:
This is the most important step and something that should be done every single night if you choose to do any of these steps and that is to wash your face! This is so important! It is so bad for your skin if you go to bed with make up on. It clogs your pores which leads to break outs and even enlarged pores which none of us want! Be sure to cleanse your face daily (I like to do it once in the morning and once at night) to remove any dirt, make up, and impurities.

At the moment I am using a great face wash by L'oreal called Go 360 Clean deep facial cleanser. This face wash is perfect for sensitive skin and comes with a little scrub brush so that you can deep clean. Not only is this a great cleanser but it also minimizes pores, and smooths skin.

Now I know we all have those lazy nights and times when we come home late and all you want to do is jump into bed and catch some z's. In that case it is always good to have facial wipes. These babies are a great way to clean up quick and not feel guilty for going to bed with all that make up and yuck left on your face from the day. Right now my favorite wipes can be found at Target. They are from up & up and come as a regular facial towelette or as an exfoliating towelette. These wipes are great because they are the first ones that I have used that don't leave a sticky residue feeling behind. They make my face feel amazingly clean and fresh and keep my skin blemish free!

Step 2:
Next step following facial cleansing is moisturizing. It is very important to moisturize your skin as dry skin leads to a loss of elasticity which means...wrinkles. I have been using Roc Retinol Correction Night Cream for sensitive skin. This stuff is awesome! It is light, totally hydrates my skin, and doesn't have that greasy feeling that most night creams are famous for.

Step 3:
My next must to my night time routine is my Garnier Ultra Lift Anti - Wrinkle Eye Roller. This stuff is great for de puffing your eyes and keeping those crows feet far far away. As the skin under your eyes is the most sensitive skin on your face it is very important to treat that skin carefully and prevent wrinkles before they start to appear.

Step 4:
Chapstick! My final step is a little lip moisturizing. EOS sweet mint lip balm all the way baby! It is soothing, fresh, and I rely on it daily!
And there you have it! My daily night routine, and although it does take a bit of time it is totally something that is worth doing for yourself in the long run!
What is your night time routine? Any products that you recommend?


  1. I agree a good night care skin routine is needed. I have mine too and it is totally worth it as I really have any breakouts.


  2. I tend to use my Clarisonic nightly along with Clinique moisturizer.

  3. I am so horrible at taking my makeup off at night but I have been keeping make-up removal towelettes by my bed to remove it.

  4. Wohh precisely what I was searching for, regards for putting up.
