Sunday Shopping: Skin Care

I can't lie, I am that girl that goes to bed with make-up still on (gross, I know Mom!). But I am trying to change my dirty ways & having easy to use & effective products has made all the difference in my routine. So now before I go to bed I use these 5 treatments so I can rest easy knowing my pores can breath!
{1.} Neutrogena oil-free eye makeup remover - gets all my mascara all off, no heavy rubbing needed!
{2.} Benefit Foamingly Clean face wash - the best I have used yet! Love the smell & I feel so fresh afterwards!
{3.} Dr. Jart Pore Penetrator - a recent addition to my nightly line-up. So far so good! I am definitely starting to tell a difference with those ugly black heads on my nose.
{4.} Bobbi Brown hydrating face tonic - LOVE Bobbi Brown & this is a tried a true beauty closet staple. A tonic that leaves my skin tingly clean but also hydrates, unlike the cheap-o Witch Hazel I used before.
{5.} Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Supplement - liquid gold. 3 drops morning & night has been soooo good to my skin. Evened out my skin tone, reduced my need to pile on the concealer! Worth every penny.

Now I am looking for a light-weight, won't break the bank skin cream to prevent wrinkles. I know I'm only in my mid-20s, but I want to start treating this skin right, since I plan on living in it for the 80 years. What are you recommendations? Any go-to products in your nightly routine?


  1. I'm just as bad with my nightly skin routine. I've been know to sleep in my makeup sadly. I am trying to change my routine too. I use say yes to cucumber wipes often. But, I'd like tomfind a good night cream too!

  2. I use an around the eye night cream, still trying to find my favorite, but this is my FAV day skin cream... super light weight with SPF: http://www.lightandsweetblog.com/2012/10/favorite-clarins.html

  3. Love this post! #1 is my absolute favorite!
    Jessica Who? send me here thru a giveaway ;)
    xx, new blog reader

  4. I have been looking for new skincare after not finding anything that has made a difference on my skin, this has been helpful! Also, Jessica Who? sent me here! :)

  5. i use Sonia Kashuk's makeup remover and i seriously love it!! i don't have a real wrinkle cream i have found that i love yet... i'll be curious to see what you learn!

  6. Oooh I really want to try the Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Supplement. As of now, I only use Cetaphil cleanser and lotion and Neutrogena eye cream. My mom bought the Clarisonic Mia II brush during the Nordstrom sale so I obviously bought my own brush head and have been stealing that, but my biggest complaint is uneven skin tone. I might need to give that Bobbi Brown stuff a try!


  7. Neutrogena can be good! others do not know!


  8. My skins been killing me this summer! Thanks for the great advice :) And for the giveaway on Jessica's!

  9. Hmm... I might have to try that Dr. Jart pore penetrator. I'm a huge fan of their BB Creams.

  10. Neutrogena eye makeup remover really does work & it's so easy! LOVE Benefit skincare products :) I've recently finished their total moisture facial cream & it was seriously the best, so hydrating! Great post~

  11. I am dying to try that Benefit face wash! I hear such great things about their skincare!

  12. I just started washing my face at night too! I am really liking the Peter Thomas Roth skincare line along with the Truth Creme moisturizer by Ole Henriksen.

  13. No! Okay, the best thing I found for my girlfriends that do this is getting the make-up remover cleanser cloths (all in one) it takes to seconds you can even do while in bed! Olay has a good one as does Philosophy, they are no rinse, just wipe that of your face and it couldn't be easier. I hope you break the habit as it's one of the worse for your skin (it needs to breathe). Good luck!


Thank you for your comments, they make my day!!
