Last week I shared my morning skincare routine with you guys so today I’m following up with my evening skincare routine!
Step 1: Remove Makeup & Cleanse
I begin by using Garnier Micellar water to remove the most obvious traces of makeup. It’s gentle on my skin and removes makeup extremely well for me in addition to being very affordable. For my eyes I saturate the cotton pad with the water and gently hold it against my eyelid for a couple seconds, and then repeat so I’m gently blotting the makeup away instead of tugging. Next I go in with a cleanser to remove anything deeper in my pores. I’m currently using the Fresh Soy Cleanser. It doesn’t strip my skin like other cleansers and still makes my face feel clean!
Step 2: Tone
I use the same toner as in my daytime routine, the Nivea gentle toner. Nothing fancy here, it’s almost scentless and doesn’t sting or burn my skin.
Step 3: Moisturize
I currently use Julep’s Night Shift Sleeping Mask/cream before bed. It’s rich and thick and soaks in overnight for more hydrated skin in the morning. My only problem with it is that it’s maybe a little too thick. I combine it with a couple drops of water and it applies a million times easier. I’ve been trying to use up all the lotions from B&BW that I’ve accumulated so I’ve also been applying this Amber Blush Body lotion on my arms, legs, and feet.
At night I really don’t bother with serums and SPF. The bottom line is, remove all makeup and moisturize.
Step 4: Eye Cream
I finally got a real full sized eye cream! With my ring finger I gently apply a dab or two of eye cream under my eyes and around the lid & browbone. It has a slight cooling effect and gently moisturizes the delicate under eye skin.
