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.

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!

|Clarisonic Mia $99.00|
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

|EOS Visibly Soft Lip Balm in Vanilla Mint $3.49|
