NIGHT NIGHT - MY NIGHTTIME ROUTINE

NIGHT NIGHT - MY NIGHTTIME ROUTINE

Hey loves!

I decided it was time to finally put up my nighttime routine! I did post a skincare routine on my Youtube channel, however some of the products have recently changes. I have combination skin, I find my forehead can get greasy af and then I have a tendency to have dry patches ( especially in the winter.)

First, I start with taking off all my makeup with my Garnier Micellar water. You can find this at any drug store, it's cheap and effective to get off all your makeup.

Next, I go in with my Angels on Bare Skin cleanser from Lush. What I really like about this cleanser is it also acts as an exfoliant; it has ground almonds, which really gives your a nice scrub. However, I'm not the biggest fan of having to break off the clay and run it under some water before I can cleanse my face ( first world problem I know!)

Next, I tone my face. The company I use to buy my skincare products from, recently closed and I ran out of toner. I found this product at Marshall's, it's only been a couple days but I really like it. I'm loving the smell of it, it's refreshing and light. I'll let you know how my skin adjusts to it; the reason why I originally picked it up was because the bottle was super cute but mainly because it was alcohol free. I don't put any alcohol based products on my face or skin because it dries it out!

Finally, I moisturize my face. I've heard amazing things about the Drunk Elephant skin care line. I've been stealing some of Nat's products and testing them out. It is a little pricey, but I don't mind spending it on my skin as I will be wearing it for the rest of my life ahah! Because it is pricey, I'm slowing acquiring products. I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS CREAM. My skin looks and feels like a baby's bottom.

Typically on Sunday, I have a mini spa day where I do a mask(something similar), draw a bath and enjoy a glass of wine! I found this mask at Marshalls as well and honestly I'm a sucker for cute labels as I mentioned. I do read the ingredients too but it's the marketing the lures me.
