My Nightly Regime

Hi Beau-teas! It's been a long time since I've blogged. I've been debating a lot whether to start up blogging again. Most of the dilemma has been whether I would be consistent in blogging. Once I start blogging, I want to keep updating regularly.

There have been many many new products I've been trying since my last post. And I'm very excited to share them with you all! In future posts, I'm hoping to share some of the products I've tried that work super well, and also those that have been duds.

Stay tuned!

In the meantime, I wanted to share my nightly routine. My skin used to be more acne prone and oily, but now it's evolved to a more dry state. I don't really get acne anymore, but I do have a little bit of spots and scars I cover with a concealer.

Here are the products I've been using every night (for the past 3 months or so):

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum
This stuff is awesome. It's a light liquidy gel that absorbs quickly in the skin that you put on before your moisturizer. It repairs your skin from the daily wear and tear (that you probably can't see) while you're sleeping. Honestly, I'm not 100% sure that this really does anything. HOWEVER, it doesn't do any harm to my sensitive skin so I'm sure it's doing something right :).

Estee Lauder Day Wear
I know I know.. you might be wondering, 'Isn't Estee Lauder for old ladies with wrinkles?' This was my first impression of the brand. But they've started a line for ladies who want to PREVENT wrinkles. Plus, you don't want to wait until you get wrinkles and lines before taking action! This moisturizer is so nice and full of 'body'. It absorbs quickly and leaves my skin soft and moisturized. AND it has SPF 15. It's a pricey moisturizer at $43 for 1.7 ounces, but definitely worth it. I will be buying it again for sure.

Kirkland signature's Age-Defying Protective Eye Cream
Ok, I got this at Costco for my mom and she didn't really want the eye cream. So I started using it even though I don't have undereye circles yet. It has a nice texture and I lightly pat it on my undereyes and potential crows feet area. Can't tell you if it's working yet, I'll let you know in 5-10 years ;)
