My Nighttime Face Routine

Hello my lovelies!

 

SkincareNight

 

This is the second part to my skincare miniseries. You might notice it’s fairly similar to my previous daytime routine, and that’s because it is! I don’t love changing up too much between the two, since I’m so oily, and this is just what works for me.

 

Let’s get started:

  • CLEANSER – As I stated in my daytime post, I switch up my facial cleanser, depending on whether I’m washing my hair or not in the shower. I use the Yes To Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Cleanser (buy here), If I’m not washing my hair that night (which is most times), and the Lush Cosmetics Herbalism Cleanser (buy here), If I am washing my hair.
  • TONER – Once again, I use my same Thayers Witch Hazel with Lavender Toner (buy here), to help with my redness and overall acne issues. I generously distribute this with a cotton pad all over my face, neck, and chest if I have any breakouts.
  • EYE CREAM – For nighttime, I want a bit of a heavier eye cream to help with my under eye dryness. I use the First Aid Beauty Eye Duty Triple Remedy Overnight Balm (buy here) to help with that. I do NOT recommend using this during the day, even if you are dry under your eyes like myself, especially if you plan on wearing makeup.
  • MOISTURIZER – This moisturizer is (I think) meant for daytime use, but since I ran out of my night moisturizer and switched to a different daytime moisturizer, I’ve graduated this Yes To Tomatoes Daily Balancing Moisturizer (buy here) to my nighttime routine. I don’t absolutely love it because it is a cream based moisturizer, but it does the job well enough.

 

That’s all I have for you guys today. Please remember to like, comment, and subscribe, it really helps me out. Also don’t forget to have an awesome hump day!

 

Stay beautiful!

My Daytime Face Routine

Hello my lovelies!

 

SkincareDay

 

I’m going to be posting a miniseries on my skincare routine, with this first one being my daytime routine. You’ll notice that I have a mix of both affordable and high end products. This is not due to me skimping on my skincare, this is because these are all products I genuinely like for my skin. You can ALWAYS find skincare at the drugstore that is as good or better than high end.

 

Let’s get started:

  • CLEANSER – Depending on whether I’ll wash my hair or not, I switch between two different cleansers. They both essentially do the same thing, but when I don’t wash my hair, I prefer to wash my face outside of the shower, so that I don’t get my hair all wet. I keep the Lush Cosmetics Herbalism cleanser (buy here) in my shower since it’s a little more messy, and the Yes To Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Cleanser (buy here) by my sink.
  • TONER – I’ve been using toner off and on for ages, and I had started skipping this step for the past year or so. A little over a month ago, I looked up witch hazel, per my esthetician’s recommendation, and found this little gem, the Thayers Witch Hazel with Lavender (buy here). The brand has a few other scent infusions, as well as a plain one. I chose the lavender infused version, since lavender is known to be calming for redness, something I have a lot of with cystic acne. I just take a simple cotton pad, squeeze the toner on, and generously apply to my whole face and neck area, as well as my chest if I’m having any breakouts there. I am a firm believer in whatever you do to your face, you should be doing to your neck.
  • TREATMENT – I use this daily to help shrink down any topical acne that I may have, which is not often, but I attribute that to this product. My favorite treatment has been the Yes To Tomatoes Daily Repair Treatment (buy here), which I blend into my entire face, neck, and chest if there are breakouts.
  • EYE CREAM – Of all my day products, this is the only product that is 1) a sample size that I received for free, and 2) not exactly a product that I swear by, since I’m the type of person that switches eye creams almost every time I finish the previous one. Nonetheless, this Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm (buy here), is super nice and moisturizing, yet light for a daytime eye cream. This doesn’t make my concealer crease up or go on cakey either, so I consider that a huge bonus, and am able to use this generously for my extremely dry under eyes.
  • MOISTURIZER – This is the newest product that I have introduced to my routine, so I am still in the testing phase with it. However, I really like the gel consistency of this First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Oil-Free Mattifying Gel (buy here). This product has a pore filling, silicone-like texture, without being heavy or slippery on my face, and keeps oil in check. I massage this onto my entire face and neck once again.

 

That’s all I have for you guys today. Please remember to like, comment, and subscribe, it really helps me out. Also don’t forget to have a lovely Wednesday.

 

Stay beautiful!
