I’m so happy to share my updated night time skincare routine. I’m always testing new products, but also have skincare staples that I’ve been using for 20+ years.
I love this routine because it makes me wake up with really glowing skin.
In this post are all of my favorite products in each category, in the order I use them, with each product linked for easy shopping!
STEP 1 | MAKEUP REMOVAL
DHC Cleansing Oil
I’ve been using this makeup remover since 2004. Nothing else compares for me! [full review]
THREE IMPORTANT THINGS with this oil to get the best results:
1 | It’s applied dry. Only add water once you are ready to rinse.
2 | One pump is all you need. Any more just wastes the product.
3 | Give the oil time to work. Let it sit for at least 30 seconds to dissolve your makeup completely before rinsing.
6.7 oz | $32
STEP 2 | DOUBLE CLEANSE
I rotate through these based on what my skin needs.
Senka Perfect Whip Cleanser | The key with this face wash is to really rub it gently around your skin until you start to feel the texture change into a super frothy whip. It’s incredible and leaves my skin clean and balanced.
4.2 oz | $8
Tatcha Rice Cleanser | Great texture and perfect cleanse. Lovely for dry skin also. When I feel like splurging, this is a great pick.
4 oz | $35
Murad Clarifying Cleaner | This is a great wash if you are getting breakouts! It really clears up my skin within a day or so.
2 oz | $12
3 | NIGHT CREAM
This is a very lightweight night cream, that is packed with science. This formula really works and makes my skin more bright and firm. I also noticed my makeup looked smoother the next day day, when I used this night cream.
1.7 oz | $99

Versed Skin Soak Rich Moisture Cream
If you are looking for a gentle night cream that smooths skin and is under $20, this is your night cream. This Versed cream has been really nice and light and I definitely wake up to brighter skin.
1.5 oz | $18
Emenience Rosehip Triple E + C Oil
I like this oil because it’s packed with ingredients, so I don’t have to use a separate serum. This makes my skin so smooth and absolutely glowing when I wake up. It’s pricey, but very, very effective.
1 oz | $118
Murad Retinal Resculpt Overnight Treatment
I have always had issues using strong retinal products in the past, so I didn’t have high hopes for this cream, to be honest. I couldn’t have been more surprised!
The texture is a nice medium weight that absorbs quickly into my skin. It makes my skin so smooth and is the most gentle retinal I’ve ever tried. Big fan.

4 | LIP BALM
Jack Black Shea Butter + Vitamin E Lip Balm | This is the best lip balm! It’s the only lip balm that leaves my lips feeling more hydrated after it wears off. [full post]
Make sure to specifically get the Shea Butter + Vitamin E version.
.25 oz | $8
5 | EYE CREAM
Versed Eye Balm | This is my new favorite night time eye cream. It’s actually a balm texture, so on the heavier side, which I’m really liking around my eyes as I get older.
.42 oz | $17
6 | BEAUTY PILLOW
I started testing beauty pillows a few years ago and at the moment, this $40 one is my favorite, paired with the queen size version of this silk pillowcase.
As a side sleeper, it takes a lot of the pressure off of my eyes and helps prevent under eye bags and half-moon creases.

1 | BODY WASH
Bioderma Shower Oil
This shower oil dissolves every last bit of sunscreen, sweat, and dirt. It’s a total game changer.
It leaves my skin soft and rinses totally clean. Also, once you shave with this, you will wonder how you ever shaved with anything else.
I use two pumps of the cleansing oil with this affordable Japanese shower pouf.
33.8 oz | $29.90
2 | BODY LOTION
Ahava Mineral Body Lotion
I buy the jumbo size bottles and they last me forever. This lotion contains minerals from the Dead Sea.
My skin is so smooth and soft when I use this, I love to put an extra pump on my chest, arms, and elbows before bed.
3 | BROW SERUM
Revitalash Advanced Eyebrow Conditioner
I switched to this brow growth serum last December and can not believe how quickly my brows grew in. It’s made doing my brow makeup so much easier every day and I can use way less of my brow pencil.
