Summer Night Time Routine, 2017

In my previous posts I have written about my morning routine and my summer makeup routine and I wanted to include my night time routine now to round it all up!Summer Night Time Routine LBL (2)On most days I wear makeup so I will use micellar water and/or makeup wipes to remove it. I have been using Bioderma’s Sensibio H2O to remove my eye makeup. I did a review of Bioderma which you can see here. I then use a makeup wipe to remove makeup from the rest of my face and down my neck. I’ve been using the Sephora’s Rose Cleansing Wipes. These wipes are OK. The wipe itself can feel stiff and a bit irritating if I use it around my eyes, but for everywhere it works pretty well and I can feel it hydrating slightly after I use it. Once a week I will switch out the Sephora wipe with my Anthony Glycolic Exfoliating & Resurfacing Wipes.
Summer Night Time Routine LBL (6)These wipes have a rough texture so it would irritate my skin if I used it too often but I do love the wipes whenever I want to deep cleanse and exfoliate my skin.

Next, I wash my face with my MUJI Foam Face Wash for sensitive skin. I read a lot of rave reviews about this company from Stashmatters (she gives the best and most thorough reviews!) so when I passed by the store I had to go in and check it out! I absolutely love this cleanser!
Summer Night Time Routine LBL (3)It’s gentle so I can use this around my eyes and doesn’t feel harsh on my skin but it really helps remove any remaining residue and leaves my skin feel squeaky clean.

Another cleanser that I have used on and off over the last 6 weeks is the Peter Thompson Roth anti-aging cleansing gel. I bought this gel from Sephora when I bought the Peter Thomas Roth Skin Saver set and this particular cleanser had a lot of good reviews. After using it for some time I think it’s only OK. It does not remove my makeup at all and unlike the MUJI wash, this one does irritate around my eyes. It’s fine for the days I don’t wear makeup or in the morning instead. I’m only including it here because I wanted to share my thoughts because since I have been testing it out. It claims to be anti-aging and brightens the skin with glycolic, citric and salicylic acid. I will use this product until it finishes but I don’t think I would repurchase it.
Summer Night Time Routine LBL (5)After cleansing I like to use the Peter Thomas Roth Retinol Fusion p.m. oil since purchasing this from Sephora 6 weeks ago (see the haul here). This has 1.5% retinol and vitamin C and E and is designed for all skin types. I’m very impressed with this. I’ve been using it for about four weeks and I’ve actually noticed a difference in my skin. For instance, I do have one wrinkle that is pretty deep above my eyebrow and after placing a drop over it for the last few weeks it has definitely been less visible! I apply one drop on my forehead, around my eyes, and my laugh lines then massage it in with my fingers. I also love the way this dropper is designed. It is curved which makes it easy to drop the product directly onto my skin.
Summer Night Time Routine LBL (4)The last step in my routine is to apply a night cream and I’ve been using the Estee Lauder Nutritious Night Vita-Mineral Intense Nourishing Creme/Mask. This is also designed for all skin types and it’s a very thick cream. I love Estee Lauder skin care and this feels really nice on the skin. I notice in the morning I’m a lot more hydrated since I’ve started using this.

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been using this series of products consistently and I feel like my skin is looking and feeling better.

There you have! This is everything I do at night. If you wanted to see my morning routine click here or if you want to see my summer makeup routine click here.

Lots of love,

  1. The Anthony Glycolic Exfoliating & Resurfacing Wipes looks useful for exfoliation. I’ve not heard of those.
    So glad you love that MUJI cleanser! I have yet to dislike any MUJI skincare that I’ve tried so far – that brand is a goldmine.
    That Estee Lauder night cream / mask looks really good – I’ve not come across that product before.
    I saw the Peter Thomas Roth Retinol Fusion p.m. retinol serum mentioned elsewhere with good review too – now I’m curious. I’m using a vitamin C and E serum that I quite enjoy but I like the sounds of combining it with retinol too.
    I always enjoy seeing people’s skincare routines – thanks for sharing yours!

    • The Anthony wipes are really great in my opinion! They can feel harsh if used too often but once a week leaves my skin super smooth.
      The MUJI cleanser is amazing! I love foam cleansers and this is one of the better I ones I’ve tried so far. I also have the MUJI cut cotton pads and they are sooooo good! I’m glad I was introduced to this brand via your blog 🙂
      I don’t think I’ve tried anything before that gave me visable results like the Peter Thomas Roth Retinol serum. It feels more like an oil, but a few drops on the skin has really made it smoother. It’s pricey but I’m really happy with it.
      Glad you liked the post! I’ve been wanting to share my routine for some time!

  2. I love the Bioderma micellar water! I like to include multiple steps in removing my makeup and washing my skin, so I usually do cleansing oil, then micellar water or wipes, then cleanse, then toner…it’s a little extra haha.

    I’m putting the PTR retinol serum on my wishlist! I have that pesky line above my eyebrow as well. I swear it’s from raising my eyebrow when I smile! I’ve purposely had to force myself to stop doing that and I think that’s helped it from getting worse lol.

    • Ya! That is a few steps, but keeping your skin looking nice and healthy is so important. For me it’s like 10 mins to myself to just digress. I need to add toner to my routine, I’m so bad with that!

      The serum is so great. I used to squint my eyes a lot when smiling! Funny how we have these interesting habits. It’s really improved my skin texture all together. I can’t say if it’s this product or something but I also feel like my eye circles are not as visible too.
