Skin Care Routine: Night

 Don't you love the feeling of taking your make-up off at the end of a long day? I know I do! While I'm at it, I like to take a few more steps to really take care of my skin.

Step 1: Remove Make-Up

I recently ran out of make-up remover wipes so tonight I used the Almay Oil Free Gentle Eye Makeup Remover Pads. These are wonderful for waterproof mascara, they take everything off so easily. Apply slight pressure over closed eyes to help break up your mascara then wipe it away.

Almay Oil Free Gentle Eye Makeup Remover Pads $7.99

Swisspers Supreme Cotton Ovals $2.58

Step 2: Wash Your Face

Once you remove your make-up, you want to wash away any excess dirt and oil. Simple has a lot of wonderful products that are non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic. My skin can be super sensitive, so I use a lot of their products. I really like the Simple Moisturizing Facial Wash. Also, when I wash my face at night I like to use my Clarisonic Mia, just for a little extra help. And don't neglect your neck!

Simple Moisturizing Facial Wash $5.97

Clarisonic Mia $99.00

Step 3: Mask

Once a week (normally on Sundays for me) I enjoy a nice face mask. Maybe I just want to feel a little fancy! I love the Glam Glow masks! Those suckers are pricey but they are worth every penny! Luckily, I had a sample for tonight.

Glam Glow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment $69.99 for 1.7 oz

Step 4: Toner

I actually just started using a toner again a couple weeks ago and my skin looks so much firmer. I have also noticed that my breakouts are going away and staying away! Just apply it to a cotton ball and apply all over your face and neck. If you are prone to breakouts, try one like,  Neutrogena's Oil-Free Acne Stress Control Triple-Action Toner.

Neutrogena Acne Stress Control Triple-Action Toner $7.99

Step 5: Spot Treatment

If there is nothing to treat then skip this step. If so, take any spot treatment you have on hand and place a small amount on each breakout. I've been enjoying the one from last month's Ipsy bag, Clean Clinic Vanished Clear Spot Treatment.

Clear Clinic Vanished Clear Spot Treatment $35.00

Step 6: Eye Cream

Technically, what I use isn't really an "eye cream" but it's awesome nonetheless! I love the Simple Revitalizing Eye Roll-On. I especially like to put it in the fridge and let it get nice and cold before I apply it to my eyes. After rolling it on, I use my ring fingers to pat it into my skin. You always want to use your ring fingers under you eye because they apply the least amount of pressure.

Simple Revitalizing Eye Roll-On $10.99

Step 7: Moisturize

After you are done with everything, your face will probably feel quite tight and dry. Moisturizer helps to replenish all that you just took away. Apply it all over your face and neck. My favorite at the moment is Simple's Replenishing Rich Moisturizer.

Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturizer $9.97


I like to use a lip scrub and lip balm after I remove my mask. For an awesome scrub, try Bliss Fabulous Sugar Lip Scrub (For a more budget friendly one, try the lip scrub by e.l.f.. It is wonderful too and just $3!) Then apply a moisturizing lip balm. EOS just came out with some new ones that are fabulous!

Bliss Fabulips Sugar Lip Scrub $18.00

EOS Visibly Soft Lip Balm in Vanilla Mint $3.49

Brand New EOS Visibly Soft Lip Balm Review

I saw this today at Target and I immediately purchased it! Maybe it's because I am a self proclaimed lip product junkie or just because of the adorable packaging! But nonetheless I am constantly reaching for something to moisturize my lips, especially in the fall and winter. So, I was pleasantly surprised to see that EOS had came out with a brand new formula.

EOS Visibly Soft Lip Blame in Coconut Milk, .25 Oz,$2.99
Personally, I love this more than the originals. It doesn't have that waxy film like the others and it goes on SO smooth! The smell is freaking fantastic! I've had it for 4 hours and I'm already in love.

EOS says that they are 99% natural, petrolatum-free, paraban-free, gluten-free and phthalate-free. Definitely check this out! They also come in the flavor Vanilla Mint.

New At The Drugstore: The Nudes Palette by Maybelline

FINALLY! There is a big palette at the drugstore! Maybelline has come out with a new, 12 pan palette simply called, The Nudes. In this you will find all of your must have neutrals. From white to light brown to black, everything you need to create a neutral eye is here. Here she is in all of her glory!

The Nudes Palette by Maybelline $10
The first thing many of you probably think of when you see or think of this is the Naked palettes from Urban Decay. Now while the Naked palettes are better quality and much more pigmented, they are also $52. This one will only run you TEN bucks! So, for all of you on a budget or for you teens that can't afford the high end stuff (my mom would have shot it down in a heartbeat lol), this is perfect for you! 

On the back you will find a pretty cool feature. Say you are a beginner and you don't know what shadow to use where, well there's a cheat sheet! You will find ways to use this as a quad, trio or duo. You can also go to Maybelline's website and they'll tell you where to put each shadow.

Top Row (No primer)

Bottom Row (No primer)

As you can see, the lighter the color the least amount of color payoff. The colors are build-able but it takes a lot more time. I have used this with primer and it does help the color show up a little more but not too much. None of the shadows are completely matte as they do have slight shimmer. The shimmer shadows do seem to show up much more than the matte/satin colors. The shades are very blend-able but the lighter colors come off a little chalky. 

Overall, I really do enjoy this and I do recommend this for those of you that want staple shades in your collection. 

Here is a more natural look I created this morning.
