Good night, Moon ?
As promised, here's the "evening edition" of my advanced skincare routine!
"What's the difference between my morning and evening skincare routines?" you ask.
Well, truth be told, not much. Just a whole range of different products selected specifically for a more in-depth and attentive cleansing and moisturizing process. I mean, the magic does happen overnight.
If you haven't already checked out Rise & Shine With Me, I highly advise you do that first. Otherwise, let's get ready to take it all off and count some sheep!
Behold my favorite cleanser and toner duo! Mario Badescu always comes through, never upsets, and solves practically all skin concerns. I love using Kleenex's Cotton Soft Pads to apply my toner. Betcha didn't know they also have superb facial cleansing wipes!

I like to pat some treatment essence on before applying my serums and moisturizers. Doing so rejuvenates my skin!
You know you're an adult when you hoard anti-aging products. Better sooner than later. Or, like, better sooner than never! La Mer's The Regenerating Serum and The Eye Balm Intense are, in my very humble opinion, the best products to use. A little goes a long way, and I've noticed a difference in my skin after just a few weeks. My complexion looks more revived and less dead. Best of all, the cold tip of the eye cream applicator is super soothing and helps to reduce puffiness.
After serum and eye cream, comes moisturizer. I like using a moisturizer (or cream during winters) that is specifically formulated for overnight use. These babies always leave my skin feeling extra smooth and supple when I wake up!
Voilà! More evidence of how much I love lip products. I like to keep my lips super hydrated (all the time), especially overnight. Check out Lip Care 101 for more info on all things lips!
Like exfoliating, treating the skin with a facial mask (at least once or twice a week) is important. No excuses, because there is a mask for everyone. Here are some of my favorite masks ordered from least to greatest amount of time needed (to fit everyone's time and budget needs). Altchek MD's Clay Renewal Mask takes just 5 minutes, Philosophy's Gel-Oil Mask suggests 10 minutes, and Mario Badescu's Flower & Tonic Mask requires 20 minutes. If you're super-duper lazy and don't want to smear product all over face, throw on a sheet or gel mask! Your skin will thank you.
