My Sunday Evening Skincare

A friend from work recently asked me what my skincare routine was like. Figured I’d share my secrets with ya’ll, too! This is my Sunday evening skincare regiment:

Thayer’s Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel Toner – Original (Found this at my local Marshalls)
MISSHA Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence (here)
Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum (here)
*Glossier Mega Greens Galexy Pack (here)
MIZON Korean Cosmetics Snail Repair Eye Cream (here)
*Glossier Moisturizing Moon Mask (here)
Naisture Tea Tree Face Mask (Found this in Marshalls, too)
*Glossier Coconut Balm Dotcom (here)

First, I make sure to shower at around 6pm for about 15 minutes because this starts the clock for my 2 to 2.5 hour routine. Immediately after my shower, I spritz rosewater face mist and apply Glossier’s Mega Green Galexy Pack for 20 to 25 minutes. Apply a thin layer and then do whatever you want. I usually pick my work outfit and throw some food together for Monday’s lunch. I LOVE LOVE that this mask detoxifies my skin, clears my pores and calms my inflammation. Plus, the ingredients are organic!! What’s not to love?!

Next, I wash it off and use Thayer’s Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel Toner – Original. I use about 4 drops on a cotton ball and swab all over my face and neck. I make sure to use one side of the cotton ball tonight, so that in the morning I can use the other side to tone.

When my toner sets, I add about 2 drops of MISSHA’s Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence on my palm, rub it over my hands and gently press the essence all over my face and neck. This feels uber relaxing in that my skin is smooth after the mask and toner.

I am thrilled to see that Caudalie’s Vinosource S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum is having a great effect on my skin. I do suffer from a bit redness and this serum helps cool down my skin for the the products to set in nicely.

My favorite thing to do is NEXT. I absolutely LOVE face masks. I found out that Marshalls carries tons of different brands for face masks. For this particular brand, it’s five face masks for $5. That’s a steal in today’s world, especially the Naisture brand. I think it’s like $10 online. So do me a favor and check out your local Marshalls or T.J. Maxx. Naisture’s Tea Tree mask smells really nice on your face and it helps my skin stay calm and hydrated from the redness. I leave it on for the full 30 minutes, which allows me to catch up on Netflix’s Chelsea!!

And last but not least is the trifecta. Nearing the end of my routine, I enjoy layering on a thick coat of Glossier’s Moisturizing Moon Mask all over my face and neck, especially during this East Coast winter. I believe this is why I wake up with plumper and refreshed skin EVERY SINGLE morning. Trust me! Up next is MIZON’s Korean Cosmetics Snail Repair Eye Cream. Make sure to use your ring finger and gently tap under your eye. Your ring finger is the weakest finger, and will not drag at your delicate skin around the eyes. Finally, I use Glossier’s Coconut Balm Dotcom on my lips for hydration and rejuvenation during my sleep.

Yup, that’s it! This is my daily night (winter) skin maintenance routine. Spring is coming up, so that means I’ll be changing up my routine when the warmer weather hits. Let me know what you think. I’d love to hear your thoughts or any recommendations.
