Anyone else feel like they cannot get into bed at night without 1. showering and 2. doing their nighttime skincare routine?! My “me time” is my nighttime routine. I am a night showerer through and through and over the last several years I have become so obsessed with my routine and skincare products that no matter how late it is or tired I am, I will make sure to find the time to at least apply my skincare. Below, I have broken down my recent routine favorites by category. I hope you love them all as much as I do! xx Viviane
Cleaning Oil/ Balms & Cleansers:
One Love Organics Botanical B Enzyme Cleansing Oil – The absolute best lightweight cleaning oil ever! It removes makeup while maintaining your skin’s natural moisture barrier and pH balance! It also has a delicious pineappple-type scent. Pump into your palm annd apply to dry face!
Clinique Take the Day Off Makeup Remover – This makeup remover actually starts as a balm and turns into a silky oil once applied to the skin! Feels like magic on your face and works so well. My only con is that sometimes my eyes get a little blurry for a second.
First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser – Gentle and fragrance free cleanser that leaves the skin feeling so clean and smooth! A great option if you have sensitive skin- this is a staple in my skincare closet. Code: VIVIANE15
Tula The Cult Classic – Another classic- this is a gel based cleanser and does not dry you out after use. I’m also addicted to the smell of this cleanser! Code: VIVIANEAUDI
Youth to The People Superfood Cleanser – You cannot go wrong with this cleanser! I recently discovered it, and love it! It is so clean and packed with superfoods that support the skin’s pH balance and clears buildup in your pores!
Fresh Soy Face Cleanser – This cleanser is made from soy proteins that help to tighten your skin while also cleansing! It also contains cucumber and aloe vera to calm and hydrate the skin. It’s a lightweight cleanser and a great option i love.
First Aid Beauty Retinol Eye Cream – I’ve been using this one since 2019 and I couldn’t recommend it enough, especially if you’re looking to use retinol around the eyes for fine lines and wrinkles. It’s sensitive enough for that thin skin, but super effective with consistent use! Code: VIVIANE15
Shiseido Wrinkle Smoothing Eye Cream – This eye cream is on the thicker side, but absorbs so well. Intensely moisturizes the eyes and is said to start reducing wrinkles in just a week!
Serums & Retinol & Face Oil:
First Aid Beauty FAB Skin Lab Resurfacing Liquid AHA 10% – A must, must, must, must try product. One of my top 3 products ever!! I use this 4-5 times a week, after cleansing, and before moisturizing. The 10% AHA is a chemical exfoliant that helps brighten skin and improve texture and it WORKS. Code: VIVIANE15
First Aid Beauty Bounce Boosting Serum – LOVE how lightweight this serum is! Packed with collagen and peptides to help preserve youthful plump skin. I lather it all over and always down the neck/chest. Code: VIVIANE15
Sunday Riley Good Genes All-In-One AHA Lactic Acid Treatment – Another amazing product that contains AHA! Helps to target pores, hyperpigmentation and dark spots. This is very similar to the FAB product!
First Aid Beauty Retinol Serum – Such a great product if you have never used retinol before! Definitely recommend it if you have sensitive skin as it’s a great beginner retinol concentration. Code: VIVIANE15
Kiehls Retinol Fast-Release Wrinkle Reducing Night Serum – Another retinol serum that helps to improve fine lines and wrinkles! Love this one, gave one to my boyfriend too!
Sunday Riley Luna Retinoid Night Oil – This is another great option for first time retinol users. A super gentle oil with blue tansy to help with surface redness, pores and wrinkles! You can use this one before/with Good Genes.
Dermalogica Overnight Repair Serum – This one is definitely a favorite. I feel like my skin wakes up looking so refreshed, plumpy, and healthy after I use this night oil. I lather it on top of everything as the last and final step. Contains a blend of argan and rose oils. Helps brighten the skin and minimize those fine lines, dryness and loss of elasticity! 10/10
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration – Cannot go wrong with this head-to-toe moisturizer! It is amazing as a general fragrance-free cream and for sensitive skin and eczema. Been using it for years and it always leave me feeling extremely moisturized. Great everyday cream. Code: VIVIANE15
Tula 24-7 Moisture Intense Ultra Hydrating Day & Night Cream – Love this cream because it has a blend of pre and probiotics to help smooth and balance skin. A great daily moisturizer and classic of Tula’s. Code: VIVIANEAUDI
Kopari Moisture Whipped Ceramide Cream – I love the way this cream applies and soaks into my skin. Kopari uses vegan ceramide and hyaluronic acid in this cream and it is just so good! CODE: VIVIANE15
Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Firming Moisturizer – A thicker consistency, the protein moisturizer with polypeptides helps to tone and firm the skin!
Fresh Sugar Hydrating Lip Balm – Obsessed with the flavor of this lip balm and keeps my lips hydrated until the morning!
