New Nighttime Skincare Routine

If you saw my last post, then you know that I've recently acquired tons of new products to build my new skincare routines - one for the morning, and one for the evening. Today I wanted to share with you what I will be testing out before bed. I'll try to do a couple of updates, which will act as mini reviews. 

Before I tell you about what I'll be using, I just wanted to say that this is my first time ever creating a strict routine. I have combination skin, but definitely am more on the dry side. I get oily on my t-zone sometimes, but my skin is still flakey in those areas. I use makeup primers to control my oil, but I never include anything drying as far as skincare goes. In the evening I have decided to use an eye cream, a serum, and then a heavy moisturizer. 

My skincare routine will go a little bit like this: 
+ Benefit It's Potent! Eye Cream * | $34.00
+ Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu Power C x 30 Brightening Serum * | $85.00

And then I will choose one of these two moisturizers, depending on how my skin is feeling:
+ Boscia Super Charge Overnight Moisture * | Full size $36.00
+ BareMinerals Purely Nourishing Cream for Dry Skin * | Full size $28.00

I've been using these products for four days now, and so far so good. In no more than a week I will write a review on these four products, and give you a skin update - so keep an eye out! My AM routine is still being made too, so that'll be up asap. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Like you, I have never had a skin care regime before. It sounds crazy, but when you have sensitive skin (and a bit dry too), the last thing that you want to do is pile on product after product!

    I do use an all natural face wash in the evenings, along with an age-defying night the mornings I simply wash (more like rinse) with a tiny bit of mild soap and then follow with a skin brightening lotion. Again, everything all natural with NO perfume. Maybe once a week I'll use and origins face mask. And if I need to remove stubborn eye makeup I use coconut oil!

    It's not really that much of a routine in my opinion, but it works.

    I am really curious to hear about all of your new products though, it'll be nice to learn more about different skin care products! I'm seriously jealous of all that you get to try out now that you work at Sephora...sneaky sneaky!

    *Oh and I sampled Origins moisture mask and LOVED it! Have you tried? It's definitely on my list ;)

    xo's, Lily

  3. So that's the secret of your beautiful skin. Nice bunch of products! I shall recommend this to my sister.
    Btw, new reader here. Hope you can visit my blog and leave a mark too! :)

  4. I did like that eye cream. Can't wait to hear reviews of the other products. I'm always looking to try new products.

  5. (so sorry for the late comment T___T)
    I like your routine, sometimes the simple things are the best!
    I'm curious about your opinion on benefit's eye cream!

    Please take care, have a nice day!*

  6. Nice picks! That Vitamin C serum looks great! xo
