My 10 Minute Nighttime/Skincare Routine

Ladies! This is my nighttime routine on a good day. Sometimes after I finish prepping Kai's food, I just want to wipe off my makeup and knock out, but I had time to document what I *try* to do for my nighttime skin routine.

If you can't watch the video, I did snapshots of my thoughts below, but I definitely go more into depth in the video.

Let me know what you guys think!


Biossance's Cleansing Oil - makeup remover
Philosphy's Purity Face Wash - overall face wash, exfoliated with a washcloth to wash off dead skin


If you have problematic skin: SKII Facial Essence (has salicylic acid and removes dead skin)
Sensitive skin: Kiehl's Iris Extract (more moisturizing)

*I would recommend the Kiehl's over SKII. It's more affordable and is not as harsh. It really depends what you are trying to accomplish with your skin!


Volition Beauty Eye Cream - super thick and moisturizing, but doesn't absorb to the skin. Hit or miss, depending on what you like! Try it once to determine what you like.


Erno Lazlo Nighttime Serum - SUPER moisturizing. Perfect for dry, winter weather.

Sunday Riley Good Genes Serum - Really brightening! I LOVED this and will definitely repurchase. It contains lactic acid, which is still a gentle ingredient, but it did sting a little bit for me. This came as a set with the night oil, so it's recommended to use both. If you have super sensitive skin, I would not recommend this. 


Biossance Oil is my favorite! Hands down.

Sunday Riley's Luna Super Oil - Not my favorite for the price. I think you can get just as good of a serum at a more affordable price point, like Smashbox's Primer Oil (my holy grail product that does it all).

Dr. Jart's Sleeping Mask - I've been so lazy about this lately. I try to use it every night, but it's okay if you just use a face oil.


Laneige's Lip Mask - I don't drink enough water and am so dehydrated, so you can definitely see it on my lips. Love this product at the work it does as I'm sleeping. This is a repeat product for me and is only $20.


Grande Lash - It WORKS! And it's cheap. Nothing else to say. 🤣
