My evening skincare routine is more involved than my morning routine. Not only do I have makeup to remove, but I think a great time to replenish my skin with good ingredients is while I sleep. I’m always changing up a few products here and there to find the best products for my skin type. These are the products I’m currently using.
Elizabeth Dehn for OLO Vitamin B Cleansing Oil – I’ve religiously used this to remove my makeup every night for about 4 or 5 months. My skin doesn’t like the cold winter weather, and this oil is so soothing and gentle. It really does melt makeup away, and smells so good. I really love nice smelling products, and this one is stellar. I highly prefer removing makeup with this as opposed to balms, which make a greasy mess on my hands and face and make it difficult to remove eye makeup – this oil makes it effortless.
Painted Earth Optimum 15% Vitamin C Face Wash – I’m on the fence about this face wash. It works…but how well for me? I still haven’t decided. After using a few different face washes in the last six months, I think I lean more towards the very gentle and mild cleansers. My skin just seems happier with them. I may start adding this back into my routine when spring gets here and my skin is less sensitive.
evanhealy Lavender Facial Tonic HydroSoul – This hydrosol is a complex lavender scent. When I first smelled it, I was taken aback – it doesn’t smell like traditional lavender to me. However, the scent has grown on me. I mist this all over my face after I finishing washing it. It is so calming and soothing. I’ve purchased another EH Hydrosoul scent for my next bottle.
Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil – Even with all the fancy and complex oils and serums out there, this oil is still stellar to me. Sometimes, simple is best. I have been reaching for this bottle more lately because whenever my skin is irritated, chapped, or developing a pimple, this oil seems to just make everything better. It’s fantastic, and I’ve already ordered another bottle.
One Love Organics Love Springs Eternal Serum – I’m on my second bottle of this lovely serum. It just works really well and I will attribute that in part to the watermelon seed oil. I have been reaching for this a little less lately, but that’s because my skin has been so sensitive and dry and I’m trying my damnedest to figure out what products make it happiest.
Laurel Eye Balm – This thick, rich eye balm is great – fantastic ingredients, gentle, non-irritating, hydrating. Before this, I was using the ED OLO Eye Balm which I absolutely love, too. It’s a toss up between these two eye balms for me – they are both great. (Not to be a tease, but I’ve been using a sample of Laurel’s Healing Balm – oh, my. It’s my favorite face balm yet. The ingredients are stellar and don’t include coconut oil).
Gemstone Organic Jade Creme – I featured this creme in my current morning skincare routine as well. I don’t use this every day, just depending upon my mood. It’s almost empty and if I do buy another of their cremes, it will be the Ruby Creme.
One Love Organics Skin Savior Balm – I purchased this when my skin started freaking out from the winter weather. I’ve been dealing with irritated, itchy skin with dry patches. Not fun, let me tell you. This is another product I don’t use every day. Its main ingredient is coconut oil, and as there are a lot of people who have experienced skin issues with too much coconut oil use, I’m leery to get too coconut oil crazy. I do use this when my skin is extra dry or tight and just needs that extra layer of moisture. Sometimes I use it as a morning facial cleanser as well. It does make my skin soft.
