my night-time routine…

Hi everyone and happy Wednesday!

Today I want to share with you my night-time beauty routine. This includes some of my all-time favorite products…some of which I’ve been using for over 10 years! I do like to try new things and switch up my products from time-to-time, but these are the ones I always come back to. (I’ve even noticed a difference in my skin when I stop using them.) This is the perfect skincare combo for me and I hope this inspires you to give it a try! Scroll down to keep reading my step-by-step skincare routine.

Step 1:

Lancôme Bi-Facial Makeup Remover 

6K0A1526
6K0A1450
6K0A1458

This is by far the best eye makeup remover I have ever used! It’s one of my favorites and I’ve been using this for at least 10 years. I’ve tried so many types of removers but this one is the most gentle and takes makeup off so easily. (Just be sure to shake it very well before using.)

Mom confessions: I’d be lying if I said I’ve never reused my eye makeup from the night before.  And sometimes after a night out, a beauty routine just feels so daunting & exhausting.  So, I love using these “premium” round cotton pads to clean up those scary raccoon eyes in the morning.

Step 2:

Estée Lauder Perfectly Clean + Clarisonic

6K0A1474
6K0A1472
6K0A1490

I’m a huge fan of Clarisonic! If you have never tried one, you will be amazed at how much smoother your face feels after you wash. It sounds cliché, but it actually does make your skin feel as smooth as a baby’s bottom! lol.

I’ve tried so many face washes, but I always come back to this Estée Lauder one. I love how it foams…especially when using the Clarisonic.  It also has a self-timer, which I will usually use for 1-2 rounds.

Tip: This face wash also doubles as a mask!

Step 3:

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair 

6K0A1533
6K0A1377

I swear this product is the fountain of youth!  I just use a drop or two and apply it right after I wash my face while it’s still a bit damp. It improves the texture of your skin, adds moisture, and just gives this overall glow!  This is another product I’ve been using for years and when I run out and get too lazy to buy more, I always notice a difference and regret it.  I’m totally hooked!

Step 4: 

Bobbi Brown Repair Nourishing Milk 

6K0A1390
6K0A1566

This is a newer product that I just started using about 3 months ago. It’s a Nourishing Milk and it’s jam-packed with vitamins! I put 3-4 drops onto my fingers and apply to my entire face. It acts like a primer and I love how it gives my skin an extra boost along with a nice, dewy finish.

Tip: I also use this during the day by adding 1-2 drops into my foundation.

.

 Step 5:

Philosophy Miracle + Bobbi Brown Intensive Eye Cream

6K0A1550

For this step, it’s all about the eyes. First, I use about 1 pump of the Philosophy Miracle and dab it under my eye area. This helps smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.

Then I use my Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Repair Cream. This is another huge favorite of mine that I take with me everywhere, especially when I travel! Bobbi Brown has two different eye creams so make sure you get the “Extra Repair” one. I noticed a big difference between the two and this one leaves a fresh, dewy finish and is extra, extra moisturizing!

Tip: You may already know, but it’s super important to be gentle when you are putting product around your eyes. The skin there is much more delicate than the rest of your face. (I also love using the Bobbi Brown Intensive Repair on my lips for extra hydration!)

 Step 6:

Bobbi Brown Hydrating Intense Night Cream 

6K0A1580
6K0A1596

The final step! This is another product I’ve only started using in the past 3 months.  It’s from Bobbi Brown and it’s called Hydrating intense night cream.  It’s so moisturizing so I put this on fairly generously.

P.S. the smell is amazing!

 

This may or may not seem like a lot, but this combo of layering products has given me the best results. As I get older, I’ve noticed more sun spots and fine lines (darn those tanning beds in college! lol) so having a routine and taking the extra 5-mintues before bed to take care of my skin has really helped me with trying to reverse the damage. Your skin repairs itself most while you sleep, so what you put on before bed is more important than during the day (with the exception of sunscreen, of course!)

.

Tips from Mom: One person I have always looked up to, especially in the way she takes care of her skin, is my Mom, Semra ♥.  Some important things she has taught me are:

1. Always wash your face before bed.

2. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!

3. Never neglect your neck and hands! Anything you do to your face, you should do to your neck as well. And if there’s any leftover product, I always rub it onto the back of my hands.
