Bedtime Beauty Routine

Hey Girls,


What is everyone's nightly beauty/skin care treatment routine? Please include brand names (face wash, make-up remover, moisturizer, etc.)


Thank you!

Re: Bedtime Beauty Routine

I used to be a bare minimalist! But now I am definitely a skincare maniac... after noticing some aging, and getting rosacea in my early 30s, I suddenly had a wake up call.


I have slightly sensitive skin, combination but almost "normal."  I try to keep breakouts and flakes to a minimum.


Two years ago I started ramping up my skin care, and this year it's definitely Maniac status!


My evening routine [my BF now waits 30 mins + for bedtime]:


  • Remove eye makeup (I don't wear that much but still) with jojoba oil, next thing to try though is Kate Sommerville True Lash.
  • Suds up Freeze 24/7 FOAMING face wash (green stuff, foams like shaving cream, fun to use and leaves me super soft, doesn't strip)
  • Clarisonic my face and neck, suds up and mostly rinse the wash
  • Warm & steamy birds-eye cotton "resuable unpaper towel" pressed to face to steam things up, and rinse last of make up and cleanser (note: check out etsy for these unpaper towels, they make awesome everything -- from wash clothes to table napkins).
  • Toner-ish (Dr. Weil Mega Mushroom treatment liquid, very soothing and evening), or "pad" product in place of toner my fav is DDG A/B Pads.
  • Serum - Algenist Retinol or Radical Serum currently, Sheseido Spot lightening serum (this lightened my whole skin tone a bit in DAYS, kinda neat to fade the last of my tan and some uneven spots).
  • Spot treat blemishes - first sulphur (Murad Acne Spot Gel) then salicylic acid (Clinique spot gel). If I'm ambitious I use my Tanda power zap (2 mins each spot)
  • Spot-moisturize with heavier night-time moisturizer - Origins Mega Mushroom (Dr. Weil) Intensive Mask (I wear it overnight). 
  • Eye gel and/or eye cream
  • Lip balm
  • Apply retinol cream samples to neck - whatever retinol product I have, currently Dr. Brandt ruby crystal cream which I love
  • Heavily moisturize hands/arms (I have eczema), Kiehl's Creme De Corps.

Re: Bedtime Beauty Routine

I tend to keep my skin routine's simple since I have sensitive, extremely acne prone skin.


Remove makeup: whatever gentle remover I find on sale at TJ Maxx lol

Cleanse: Boscia Purifying Cleansing Gel

Tone: Cellbone's Prep with glycolic acid

Serum: Mad Hippie's Vitamin C serum on face and Philosophy's When Hope is Not Enough on neck (it got downgraded to a neck product because it broke me out :-( )

Lips: Rosebud lip salve, but I'm definately wanting to try Bite Beauty's new lip mask


Twice a week: Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay-100% pure bentonite clay mask



Re: Bedtime Beauty Routine

I've used that clay - it's good!  I like that I can mix it with different things (I've used water, ACV, different fluids/toners I wanted to use up -- I was inspired because at Aveda they mix a clay mask for facials with their treatment liquid!).


Also - I love that you downgrade products to neck.  I do the same thing, or I just use any anti-aging product, deluxe sample, or GWP that I have on hand Smiley Very Happy.

Re: Bedtime Beauty Routine

Wow! Mixing the clay with other skin treatments is a really good idea. Thank you! Ive only used water or vinegar so far, but I'm definitely looking forward to switching it up.

Re: Bedtime Beauty Routine

How do you like the bentonite clay? I've been debating between getting it or some French Green clay

Re: Bedtime Beauty Routine

I really like the bentonite clay. Since I don't have a Clarisonic yet, I use the mask to really clean my pores so my other skin care products can penetrate better. I've definitely noticed a healthier complexion and less breakouts.

Re: Bedtime Beauty Routine

I have oily/combo skin which is a little dry (because I'm on Atralin). Here is my current routine Smiley Happy

Cleanser: Clarisonic Mia2, Fresh Soy Face cleanser, Caudalie Instant Foaming Clenaser, or Boscia Black Detoxifying Cleanser (and No, I don't use them all at once. I tend to alternate them depending on my mood Smiley Very Happy)

Toner: the one and only SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion

Serum: Caudalie Vinosource SOS Serum

Moisturizer/ mask: SK-II Cellumination Mask-in Lotion or Korres Yoghurt Sleeping Facial

Eyes: Dior Hydra Life Pro Youth eye cream

Lips: Dior Creme de Rose

Re: Bedtime Beauty Routine

I have combo/oily, sensitive skin and it changes based on how my skin is acting, but here are the products in use:


  • Remove Makeup/First Cleanse: Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm
  • Second Cleanse: Clarisonic w/ Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser (3x a week). The other days of the week I use the REN HydraCalm Cleansing Milk
  • Exfoliating Toner (if I didn't use my Clarisonic): Pixi Glow Tonic
  • Hydrating Toner: Darphin Intral Toner (if skin is aggravated) or Thayer's Witch Hazel mixed with 5% Tea Tree Oil
  • Eye Cream: Caudalie Premeir Cru Eye Cream
  • Treatment: Clarins Lotus Oil
  • Moisturize: Korres Greek Yogurt or Wild Rose Sleeping Facial
  • Lips: Jack Black Lip Balm

Re: Bedtime Beauty Routine

I have combo skin on the dry side just for reference.


Cleanse with Neutrogena Naturals Fresh Cleanser + Makeup Remover (use a Clarisonic 2-3 times a week with it)


Alternate nights with Peter Thomas Roth Retinol Fusion PM (for clogged pores) and Alpha Hydrox Spot Lightener (for acne scars)


Moisturize with Origins Make A Difference Rejuvenating Treatment and CeraVe PM moisturizer. I also just got the Boscia Tsubaki Sleeping Mask so that will become a part of my routine 

Re: Bedtime Beauty Routine

Make-up remover - Bioderma Crealine cleansing water

Face wash- Michael Todd Honey Oat Cleanser

Toner- Michael Todd Cranberry Toner

Serum- Michael Todd Hydration Boost Serum

Moisturizer- Michael Todd Damascus Rose Anti-aging Cream

Eye Cream- Kiehl's Creamy Avocado Eye Cream

Lip Balm- Dior Creme De Rose



Michael Todd Avocado Mango Mask 1-2 times a week

Fresh Sugar Brown Sugar Lip Scrub- 2 times a week


As you can tell I've been on a Michael Todd kick, only because I got a kit for Christmas. So far I'm absolutely loving everything from the line and think I may have found my HG skin care brand/routine, as my skin as never looked better. I have very sensitive/dry skin so most products are too harsh for me but so far so good with this routine. 

Re: Bedtime Beauty Routine

My own is:


  • Cleanse face with Anthony Logistics Glycolic Cleanser + Clarisonic Mia
  • Use a tiny (smaller than a pea) amount of Retin-A or Tazorac over my entire face (for anti-aging)
  • Eye Cream (Shiseido Benefiance)

…that's it! If my skin is particularly dry, I use a moisturizer (Fresh Youth Preserve) but I haven't been using one lately.
