I get a lot of questions about my skincare routines and decided an update was due on TBBB. I split it up into two videos, one for my nighttime routine and the other for my morning one. I’m including photos and links to all of the products I am currently using and loving in my nighttime skincare routine here. Stay tuned for my morning skincare routine post, coming up next.
I start off my nighttime skincare routine by removing my makeup. I don’t wear makeup every day, but on the days that I do, I use Shiseido Facial Cottons with Lancome Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover to neatly remove my eye makeup. I purchase both of these from Sephora. I love the up&up Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes from Target to remove any face makeup. I do these steps before cleansing my skin.
I absolutely love Origins products, which I have been a loyal fan of for the past several years. I like using the Origins A Perfect World Deep Cleanser to wash my face at night. On the days I’ve worn makeup I use a Clarisonic Plus face brush to get a gentle deep clean. This really works to get all of the makeup off my face. You’d be surprise what comes off with the face brush even after using makeup remover! I use the sensitive skin brush heads for my Clarisonic, which I typically replace every two to three months. I’ve had my Clarisonic for several years now. I originally purchased it from Ulta, but I’ve also seen it for sale at Sephora and department stores. I follow up the cleanser with toner. I use the Origins A Perfect World Age-Defense Treatment Lotion (which acts as a toner) and my favorite Shiseido Facial Cottons to apply this to my skin.
I use LUSH’s Grease Lighting as a spot treatment for active breakouts and as a preventative measure on parts of my face that are prone to breakouts, such as my chin, upper lip, and forehead. Tea Tree oil is a natural antibacterial agent that works great as an acne spot treatment. I use a very small amount of this (a little goes a long way) and let it dry compltely before applying my nighttime serum, Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Serum.
I prefer to use thicker moisturizers at night. Skin does most of its repairing while you sleep, which gives the products a chance to have a deeper effect. I love Origin’s Eye Doctor and High-Potency Night-A-Mins, because they are rich creams that absorb nicely into the skin without feeling thick or oily on my face.
I consider taking care of my lips to be an important part of my skincare routine. I like to exfoliate them every other night using LUSH’s Mint Julips Lip Scrub. I follow up with the Honey Trap Lip Balm for a great overnight lip treatment that isn’t too thick or oily, but still has great staying power. I use this on the nights I don’t exfoliate as well.
I use the Bliss Steep Clean Mask twice a week to keep my skin feeling soft and looking radiant. I also want to mention the Glitzy-Glam Waffle Weave Head Bands, which I use throughout my entire skincare routine morning and night to keep my hair off my face and out of the way.
That’s all of the products I use for the nighttime skincare routine I’ve been following recently. For more details about my routine, check out the video below. Stay tuned for a post featuring my morning skincare routine products with a coordinating video.
I’m excited to be hosting an Origins Skincare Products Giveaway to accompany this post! Origins was kind enough to reach out to me not too long ago after seeing my older skincare routine videos.
