When it comes to my nightly skincare routine, I am extremely consistent. I diligently wash, tone, spritz, apply serum and lotion (as well as cream or oil depending on my skin, or the season), and follow it up with a huge helping of eye cream. I don’t care how many drinks I’ve consumed or how seriously tired or dead I might feel, I will ALWAYS wash my face and go through the essentials steps. The thing is, skin naturally regenerates overnight, so the use of nourishing oils and moisturizers while you sleep can help speed this process along to reveal better skin.
This is why I spend a few minutes on responsible skincare before I jump (or leap!) into bed.
BUT, the beautification doesn’t stop there. Take one look at my nightstand and you will know what I am talking about. It’s practically overflowing with creams, lip balms, cuticle oils, lotions, candles and sleepy time scents. I might as well get my bang for my buck while I catch my Z’s, RIGHT?!
Being a fulltime beauty writer, I am surrounded by more skincare than one could possibly imagine, but because I am so happy with my current routine, it’s pretty difficult to find a new product that makes it into my current routine. In other words, these products are the best of the best.
These are the ever so luxurious products that passed my bedside table test.
H. Gillerman Organics Sleep Remedy: I am the world’s worst sleeper. These oils prepare you for a deeper, more restorative night’s rest. When it takes too long to fall asleep, inhaling this lightly sweet, herbal scent dissolves the thoughts that keep you awake. I apply this magical organic and aromatic rollerball onto my chest and pulse points, like behind my ears and on my forehead temples. Its calming mixture of lavender and sage helps me rest my mind.
Tata Harper Love Potion: For a more exotic experience, spritz a little bit of Tata’s aromatic scent for a sexier sleep. In this bottle, find liquid love – an aromatic blend of ten of the world’s most potent aphrodisiac essential oils to stimulate the senses, heighten sensuality and immediately inspire an inner sense of beauty and confidence.
Cowshed Apricot Nourishing Cuticle Oil: A friend discovered this cuticle savior at Miami’s Soho House. It’s pure luxury in a bottle and I’ll even use it on the tops of my hands for added moisture.
Rodin Olio Lusso Lip Balm: One of the best out there. The packaging is beyond chic, and gives you long lasting moisture.
Bite Lip Mask: I’ll be honest with you, girls, I’m 100% addicted to this baby. Its super thick formula is a true source of moisture and regeneration for your pretty pout.
By Terry Baume de Rose: Another product that feels absolutely luxurious. One of the best lip treatments ever created. The rosy smell is totally divine.
Rodin Olio Lusso Hand Cream: Ahh the smell. You will be addicted. Heaven heaven heaven.
Byredo Parfums La Tulipe Crème: This fall, Byredo is launching a line of hand creams. La Tupile is my absolute favorite. This takes my obsession with Byredo to a new level. For now, stick with the body cream.
Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist Intense: This lightweight mist that provides a fresh boost of precious rose flower extracts and potent botanicals to help hydrate the skin’s surface, all in support of the Jurlique Ideas of Beauty Fund.
Nighty night, loves.
