Spring Nighttime Skincare Routine

With lighter temperatures came a change in my skincare. Here is what I am loving for nighttime. Yes, my face wash is missing. Here is the thing. I use many different ones at night depending and the situation. I will have a separate post for that coming soon. Promise. But let's focus on the after washing parts, shall we?

Once my skin is free of makeup and grime, I like to tone it with Lush Tea Tree Water. It is not harsh on the skin and great for everyday use. I decided to move all my acne products to night as I no longer need them as much as I used to. Using this toner once a day is good enough to keep the spots at bay. Next I go in with a 'heavier oil', Josie Maran Argan Infinity Cream Intensive Creamy Oil. OK, the name was a bit misleading for me as I thought this was in a cream form but instead is just a thicker oil. But when I looked into it, it is supposed to be a cream. I wonder, do I need to shake it? Is it too hot in Texas that the oil can't keep its consistency? Weird. So I shook it and it did get thicker but was still loose like (do I make any sense these days?). Regardless, it works great for me and provides the right amount of moisture needed. I use this over my lips as well and in the morning my lips are so much softer and ready for lipstick. 

Around my eyes I apply a light layer of Lush Enchanted Eye Cream. I really do love this product and if you don't suffer from intense dark circles, puffiness, fine lines then this is the product for you. It is all natural and light. It provides moisture without stickiness or tint. Finally, I apply a generous amount of Estelle and Thild Night Cream Rose Otto and take it down my neck as well. Love, love, love this stuff and anything from this brand. Why can't I find a local store that stocks them? Provides great moisture without feeling heavy on the skin. 

Anyone else out there a huge fan of Estelle and Thild? Where do you buy it?
