My Nighttime Skincare Routine

Helloo again! If you missed my last review on the e.l.f. Hydrating Bubble Mask, you can read it here.

Today, I will be sharing with you all my nighttime skincare routine. I don’t really have an extensive list of products, I was blessed with a somewhat cooperative skin, but I still like to treat it well. My main thing is to ALWAYS, ALWAYS remove my makeup before going to bed. I usually like to do it an hour or so before I go to bed, to give my skin some breathing time and let the moisturizer sink in. I’ve tried a lot of different makeup wipes, and I love the Pixi Beauty Double Cleanse (except for the fact that it’s too messy and I’m too lazy), but my number one is the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. They have different versions (for waterproof makeup, mattifying, and there are even more versions in other countries), but I love the normal one.

The micellar water is both a cleanser and a makeup remover so you really feel like it takes everything away. There isn’t a need to wash it off or do anything else, so this really is the perfect product for all the lazy girls out there. They sell travel sizes which are perfect as there should never be an excuse to not remove your makeup before you go to bed. You will go through an extensive amount of cotton pads so be warned!

Next step is Pixi Beauty’s Glow Tonic. According to the Pixi website, this

  • Exfoliates and purifies the skin with Glycolic Acid
  • Ginseng improves circulation and energizes
  • Aloe vera soothes and hydrates
  • Refines the appearance of pores
  • Gently accelerates cell renewal to reveal a brighter, glowing complexion
  • Balances, heals and soothes for radiant, healthier looking skin


Basically, it’s just something you need in your life. My local Target only ever carries the medium, 100ml size and it’s so frustrating. I use this both in the morning and at night after cleansing.

The third and final step is the Garnier Miracle Anti-Fatigue Sleeping Cream. This is nothing too crazy or life changing but it just gives my skin that extra bit of moisture and assistance to get me through the night. According to the site, this product is supposed to make you wake up rested and to younger-looking skin. To some extent, I think there are products that do a way better job than this one and if you have bigger skin concerns this is not the product for you, but if you just need a little night booster, I would definitely recommend it.


Honestly, I try not too overwhelm my skin with too many things. I’ve found that sometimes the more product I use, the more issues my skin has so I try to steer away and just give my skin a little bit at a time.

What are some of the products you’ve been using before going to bed every night?
