My Morning & Night Skincare Routine

Afternoon loves! I've had some requests and questions about my skincare routine so I thought I'd share it with you today. This is a skincare/bedtime routine really. Call me weird, but I LOVE my nightly bedtime routine. I just love washing and moisturizing my face and getting ready for bed each night. Having a night where I don't want to wash my face never occurs because I love it that much. Something about that fresh face and crawling into bed at night, ahhh....

We'll start with my morning routine first

1- Wash my face with Purity Made Simple face wash.
2- Use Boots Expert Gentle Toner with a cotton ball. I love this stuff, it truly cleans off all remaining dirt/makeup on your face and leaves it feeling so clean without that burn or dryness of an astringent.
3- Moisturize with Take a Deep Breath moisturizer. I did a whole blog post on this and the face wash you can find here. There is a link to buy the value pack for them both in there.
4- Roll this Anti dark circle roller under my eye area. I am still testing this out, it is the generic brand to the Garnier one. I do feel like it helps a little bit.
5- Prime my face with Benefit Porefessional.
Then it's makeup time!!

Now let's move onto my bedtime routine :)

Ok, obviously the first 3 steps are the same so we will just skip on to step #4...
4- Apply an anti aging eye cream under my eyes and on my eyelids. Right now I am using Clinique Eye Cream. I probably won't repurchase, it's a little heavy/greasy for me. I can't use it during the day.
5- LIP BALM! I am an addict. The blistex has always been my fave.
6- I love to lotion up my hands and arms before I crawl into bed. I love Champneys Mediterranean Bliss Body Hydrator.
7- A couple nights a week I like to use a lip scrub, I have really been liking Fabulips Sugar Lip Scrub

So there you have it, my morning and night skincare routines! Let me know if you have any favorite products or special routines.

I read this morning that Talia passed away. She was a 13 year old beauty guru who had been battling cancer. She captured the hearts of many, myself included. She was a perfect example of the way you should go through life. Even though she was battling cancer she was always happy and upbeat. No way you could look at her or watch her videos and not smile. Beautiful inside and out. RIP Talia.

Thanks for reading,


  1. OH so many great products. I love Clinique!

    1. Thanks! I really like Clinique as well, that eye cream just isn't great with my oily skin :)

    2. Hey is a suggestion, try Clarins advanced extra-firming eye contour cream. Its fab! I use it day and night and it doesn't leave me greasy.

    3. Thank you Keisha! After I use up my Origins one I just bought I will look at that one :)

  2. Thanks for sharing this!! I've been wanting/needing for quite some time to get myself on a good skincare routine before it's too late. I'll check out these products. :)

    1. Well you're welcome, let me know too if you find anything you really like. I am loving that Boots toner, I get it at Target and it's not expensive. You should try!


Thank you so much for stopping by, I love reading your comments! I reply to all of you, but if you're a "no-reply" blogger I can't. Email me if you have questions :)
