Nighttime Skincare Routine

Happy weekend, everyone!! In my most recent video, I share with you this week’s Nighttime Skincare Routine. Proper skincare routines are essential to fantastic makeup looks. The better you care for your skin, the less makeup to wear!  I do like to switch up my skincare routines very frequently. The reason for this is because it is good to keep your skin guessing.  In this video, I mention one of my dry skin skincare secrets: GLYCERIN! Unfortunately, I forgot to include my bottle of glycerin in this video.  Glycerin is great for locking moisture into your skin.  I like to add it to my skincare products, and most especially, adding it to my moisturizers.  It is also available in the skincare section of most drugstores.  Especially during Fall months, layering my skincare products is key for ultimate hydration and glowing skin.  That all said, the first step in my current nighttime routine is cleansing with one of my favorite oil cleansers: Nars Makeup Cleansing Oil.

Nars Makeup Cleansing Oil can be used on wet or dry skin, & is uber-hydrating for dry skin.

Oddly enough, I don’t prefer it for makeup removal.  It does work for removing eye makeup, but it does not have the suds’ing effect that I prefer for full face makeup removal. It does work brilliantly as a hydrating cleanser when I am not wearing makeup, and can also be used on wet or dry skin.  I absolutely love it!  An aromatherapy junkie, I love using products containing the calming effect of lavender for nighttime skin care.  I follow up the cleanse with my Humphrey’s Lilac Witch Hazel (has a sweet, floral scent that is a tiny bit sweeter than lavender :).  This hydrating toner is very soothing (especially for sensitve skin) and contains moisturing benefits of glycerin & hyaluronic acid.  Toning with the witch hazel & cotton pad also helps to exfoliate my skin.  I then massage my face and neck with my Ganique Paris Miracle Face Lift Oil.  This oil includes lavender, vitamin c, & loads of other amazing ingredients that nourish my skin.  Then I add my Kosé Eau de Claire Hyaluronic Acid Serum and Eucerin Intensive Repair Moisturizer.

Next, I spritz Jurlique Lavender Hydrating Facial Mist on my face & apply my Jurlique Purely Age Defying Eye Cream.  The eye cream is lightweight and ever so nourishing to the sensitive undereye area.

Lastly, I moisturize my lips with Miracle Skin Transformer Miracle Balm (I have at least 7 bottles of it on backup!).  It is an oil-based balm that can be used for hydrating the face, lips, body.  Since I do like to frequently update my skincare routines, I will be sure to update you with any noteworthy changes.  If you like this Nighttime Skincare Routine Video, please be sure to give it a like & subscribe for more future videos :))) Thanks for watching!

April Favorites & Current Makeup-Prep Routine

Hi guys!  My April Faves & Current Makeup-Prep Routine vid is now up!  There were a ton of products that I’ve been loving this month, hence the lengthy vid.  I’ve been loving Jurlique’s Purely Age-Defying Eye Cream.

It has a gel/lotion-like texture, and leaves my eye area feeling super soothed.  Many tend to think that applying heavy creams to the undereye area is a good thing.  On the contrary, heavy eye creams can actually clog the tiny pores around your eyes and draw attention to your eye area.  Thinner textured, uber-hydrating eye creams are the way to go for sensitive undereyes.  Jurlique’s is definitely one of my faves.  Bare Minerals Biolucent Mineral Brightening Treatment has also been amazeeee.  I apply it after I apply the Rose Hip Oil, and then I apply my moisturizer.

This combo has been giving my skin healthy radiance without the need to slather on as much highlighter 😉  One of my new holy grail’s is Chrislie/Measurable Difference’s Rose Hip Body Oil.  It is a luxurious, calming, & hydrating oil.  On the bottle it does say the oil can be applied to face, so I’ve been primarily using it as such :_)  Aside from the light, true rose scent & lovely roses floating at the top of the glass bottle, I love that a little goes a long way.  It applies from a glass dropper as a light oil, not  a heavy one, & leaves my skin feeling hydrated and dewy.

This oil very could be my fave product of life!!!!  Also been loving Real Techniques blush brush & Wet N’ Wild’s contour palettes!

What was I doing before this blush brush!?!!  The contour palettes include super soft powders that blend flawlessly! Especially love the banana shade for setting my undereye concealer.  The bronzers are matte, and are amazing for sculpting and all-over bronzing, not to mention, they also make great crease shades for that balanced bronzed makeup look. Petal Fresh’s Toning Hibiscus Papaya body butter has done wonders for body hydration this month as well.  I also recommend their Honey Coconut Oil flavor :)))  The Petal Fresh Pomegranate Face Wipes have been my quick face exfoliation go-to’s!

The thing I love the most about Petal Fresh is that their products include super natural ingredients. Next, Soapbox’s Mandarin Hand Soap won’t be leaving my sink anytime soon.  With every Soapbox purchase, Soapbox will donate a soap to someone in need.  Love their charitable efforts!!  The mandarin scent is divineeeeeee!!!!  Another fave is my plaid Posh Poncho chihuahua clothing design. Having a lot of fun making these!
