Nighttime Skin Care Routine 2018 |Cruelty-Free

Hello everyone, today’s post will consist of my nighttime skin care routine. I decided to give you the rundown of my current nighttime routine. My nighttime routine often varies between three scenarios for example; when I wear makeup, normal days, and when I am lazy. These are my all time favorite products, now onto my nighttime skin care!

Makeup days:

For the days that I wear makeup, I first start off with removing the surface layer of my makeup with Burt’s Bees Sensitive Skin facial cleansing towelettes, these are great for taking off makeup, they do not leave my face greasy, and they clean the skin very well.Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Followed by that, I take my Milky Jelly cleanser by Glossier and pump some into my hands I massage the cleanser all throughout my face (even on my eyes because it’s safe to remove eye makeup 😉 ).Processed with VSCO with hb1 presetAfter thoroughly applying the product onto my face, I get my Foreo LUNA mini 2 to deeply cleanse the skin. I love this so much, because it is T-Sonic™ face brush with different intensities, making the skin appear more cleaner and smoother. I move the brush in circular motions all throughout my face. After, I then rinse my face with lukewarm water and pat dry the skin (never rub the skin, as it can cause irritation).  


No-makeup days:

On my makeup free day, I will wash my face similarly with my Foreo LUNA mini 2, but using the Purity facial cleanser by Philosophy (an amazing facial wash for sensitive skin). I apply some into my hands spreading the product throughout the skin and deeply cleansing the skin with the LUNA, rinsing and drying as normal.Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset


Daily routine:

These next few products are what I try to use everyday after washing my face, except on those lazy days, lol! I try to apply toner everyday, after washing my face. Toner is the key to good skin, it will kill all the bacteria and wipe away any oil on the skin, balancing your skin’s pH level. Toner also should soothe the skin and calm inflammation if any, I prefer an alcohol-free toner so the skin does not get dried out.  The absolute best toner out there is the Thayers Witch Hazel Lavender Toner.  This toner smells amazing, refreshes the skin, and improves the skins quality. All you have to do is apply some to a cotton round and wipe onto your face and neck.Processed with VSCO with hb1 presetFor days when my skin is a bit dry I apply the Burt’s Bees sensitive skin moisturizer (see Winter Skin Essentials), followed by my Sun Bum Lip Balm in the flavor Mango to hydrate my lips.IMG-0671.JPGBefore I go to bed, I spray my Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Chamomile, and Lavender  all over to calm my skin.Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset


For those lazy days:

We all have those lazy days when we just really do not want to wash our face or anything. The solution that I have for you is, using the Yes To cucumbers calming Micellar Cleansing Water on a cotton pad. This will help remove any dirt, oil, or makeup off the skin without needing to rinse afterwards. It is quick, effective, and the solution to a lazy person’s guide.Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

What’s in my Ipsy Glam Bag for January 2018?

Today, I am going to be showing what I received in my glam bag for the month of January. If you are unsure what Ipsy is well, it is a monthly subscription for five beauty products (usually travel size, however sometimes full size) that is personalized for just you,  that costs $10 a month plus free shipping for your glam bag. At the end of each month, you will rate each individual product and the glam bag as a whole. The ratings will then influence your next month glam bag. Also, each month there is a different theme that might contribute to some of the products you may receive.

I have been an Ipster since April of 2017, since then I have received glam bags that I was obsessed with and others that… didn’t really meet my expectations unfortunately.

The month of January consisted of the theme “Game Face”, which correlates to the new year, that you can achieve your goals, if you simply set your mind to them then anything is possible. Anyways, let’s see what I got in my glam bag!

LUÉ by Jean Seo: Balance hydrating & calming serum

I have never heard of this brand, although I am very curious to try it out! I have been in need of a serum especially throughout these winter months. The serum is light and unscented, the directions state to apply after cleansing the face in the morning or at night.

Mary-Lou Manizer by The Balm cosmetics: highlighter, shimmer, eyeshadow. 

I absolutely love The Balm cosmetics, their products have a vintage vibe to them and they are just super cute, always work out for me, and they are cruelty-free. The Mary-Lou Manizer is a champagne color that gives a subtle glow to the skin. I have also gotten the Betty-Lou Manizer in a past glam bag, which is a copper bronze shimmer color.

Highlighter brush by SLmissglam: L36 (brush name) collab with Ipsy 

First things first is how cute the actual brush is, it had a pink glittery handle and the brush head is this ombre of a pinkish to a neon purple. The brush itself is extremely soft and has a great precision for highlighter. Will definitely use this the next time I wear highlighter!

Dermelect Microfacial Exfoliating Masque

This is also another brand I have never heard of, but I am very eager to try this face mask out, the packing mentions that it’s a multi-brightening mask that restores dull looking skin to luminous and radiant! Also it is cruelty free so as always that’s a win!

Kissable Liquid Lipstick by Kokie Professional: in shade Mad about Mauve

I believe I have received a liquid lipstick by this brand before, I will say that the shade is gorgeous simply because I love mauve shades. I am not a huge liquid lipstick girl overall but I will give this a try and see how I like it.
