Current Nighttime Skincare Routine for Winter 2016

I’ve been very inspired by Anne’s Instagram posts which feature all her skincare products for every routine. There is something so satisfying about seeing bottles, tubes and vials all crowded into one photo.

I’m talking about my nighttime routine today because I’ve been very diligent about maintaining it. I think it’s worth discussing. 🙂


Step 1: I take off my makeup at the end of the day so the French Girl Cleansing Wash comes after the L’Occitane Deep Cleansing Oil. The oil breaks down a day’s worth of city pollution, grime and face products. Then I wash a second time using FG Cleansing Wash.

Step 2: After patting my face dry, I apply a thin layer of Drunk Elephant Glycolic Night Serum. I wait about two minutes for it to take a chance to sink in, then I apply Nuxe Crème Fraiche Light. I use a heavier moisturizer at night because I dislike using heavy creams under makeup.

Step 3: Eye care! You all know I am serious about the eye area. I use Boots Botanics Triple Age Renewal Eye Serum, then seal the serum with Nivea Crème. I want the double action of an eye serum with the intense hydration of the Nivea Crème.

What does your current nighttime regimen look like?
