I’ve been wanting to write about this for ages. I took the photos last month when I told you about my day time skincare routine, but didn’t get to post it. Yesterday, I told you how I cool down my face during the day, and today, let me tell you how I wind down and call it a night. As usual, I’d cleanse my face, by removing makeup, followed with one of my favourite cleansers. Then, I’d mist my face using the Dior One Essential Mist Lotion* (I’ll tell you about it tomorrow), followed with this CosRX Galactomyces 95 Whitening Power Essence. I bought this from Hermo (a local online site) and have been using it every night for the last few months. It hydrates my face nicely, and is supposed to even out my skin tone too. Then, I’d either use my staple Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum or this Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Face Serum* before my treatment serums.
I bought these 2 Deciem treatment serums when there was 20% off, and I’ve been really loving the C25 Vitamin C Booster. The White RX Activated Serum is OK. I don’t see anything drastic, but it does help speed up the healing process of my pimple marks, especially when paired with the Vitamin C. I use 4 drops each serum, one after another, instead of mixing them together. After these treatments, I’d apply my moisturizer. I’ve been rotating between 2 Dior moisturizers. One is the very luxurious Dior Prestige* and the other the Capture Totale* moisturizer which I still love very much. Of course, I always apply my eye cream. I bought 2 new eye creams lately, and I’ll tell you all about it in another post.
Depending on how my skin feels, I’d end my skincare routine with a face oil. The La Mer Renewal Oil* is great to seal in all the goodness and I use it after my moisturizer. Sometimes, I’d add 2 drops to my moisturizer and sometimes, I’d just use one full pump on its own. I purchased the Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil last month, in the Cult Beauty box, and this is a deluxe sample size. I prefer this size, because it takes forever for me to use up a face oil. When I use this oil, I skip my treatment serums. I’d mist, use essence and the ANR serum, then this oil on top of a moisturizer. That’s because this is already a retinol treatment, and I prefer to have this as the only active in my routine. It doesn’t break me out, and I notice that my pores look smaller the next morning. I think to see obvious results, I’d have to use it nightly for a month or two, but I’ve only been using this on alternate nights.
Lastly, before bed, I’d apply my Erborian hand cream* and spray my bed and pillow with This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray*. I love how it smells. It relaxes my body and I feel like I have deeper sleep for sure. I close my eyes and when I open them, voila, it’s 6am! Well, that’s if the baby sleeps well too, of course. I have a 10% discount code at Sephora and I’ll be using it to repurchase the Deep Sleep Pillow Spray 🙂
That, my friends, is my night time routine. Sometimes, I’d throw in a mask, omit a few things, and even add other things, or change it up altogether, but that’s the gist of it. Products may vary, but the steps are there. What’s yours like?
