This is my skincare routine at bedtime. It’s pretty simple and very static; it only changes if I’m trying new products, but I’m mainly loyal to Peter Thomas Roth and Estee Lauder products. It’s also pretty static because I only change products as I finish an item, I only tend to switch halfway through a bottle if I have a bad reaction or notice that my skin is not benefiting at all.
Chanel Demaquillage Yeux Intense – A very expensive but really effective eye and lip makeup remover. I do recommend it, but at the same time, I’m always looking for a cheaper alternative. Will repurchase in the future.
Mario Badescue Glycolic Acid Toner – this has very few ingredients. Just the way I like it. It is actually my second favourite glycolic toner after the Reviva Labs toner (which is amazing). You get a better value for the money with this one though, since the bottle is so huge. Possible repurchase in the future.
Nars Cleansing Oil – I have a love-hate relationship with this one. I bought it during one of those Nars sales for 50% off. Which is good as its mainly just mineral oil so I would have so returned it had I paid full-price for it. Honestly, I can get a tub of mineral oil at CVS for $3. Anyway, it’s an OK cleanser. Does not feel greasy at all and it does a decent job of removing foundation. Will not repurchase at all. There are definitely much better cleansing oils out there and I’m just trying to finish the bottle.
Clarins – this is just a tad drying for me right now, so I may switch to something else. It’s usually perfect during the summer when my skin tends to feel a little oilier. Right now I use as little as I can get away with, and only once a day.
Peter Thomas Roth Glycolic Acid 10% Hydrating Gel – This is one of my absolute favourite serums. It helps keep my skin clear and smooth. I honestly feel like this has helped to keep the hyper-pigmentation to a minimum. This is my second bottle and a definite repurchase.
The two samples are my La Prairie products -Anti Aging Night Cream and Anti-Aging Longetivity Serum. So far, I enjoy these products but I’m not sure if I could pony up $455 for the pair. I have other deluxe samples to try. We will see. I do like them though, but so far I haven’t decided if they are any better than really night creams that don’t cost both my legs and arms.
What about you? I hope you remove all of your make-up at night and take care of your skin. Skincare is much more important than make-up.
Stay blessed and thank you so much for stopping by!
