My Mom's Current Evening Skincare Routine

My mom just updated all of us on the masks and exfoliators she is currently using to help give her skin a glow, and she is back today with her current evening skincare routine. Stay tuned for next week when she will be doing her final updated skincare post talking about her morning routine. While I give my mom soooo many products to try, she is just as picky as me so the ones she features on my blog are often her tried and true. And many have been featured before in previous posts, but that speaks to how effective they are for her which is why they are still in her routine. For this update, there are a few new additions which she instantly fell in love with and was excited to share her thoughts. Here is her current evening routine in her own words:

1. Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water - I typically use a cleansing oil to remove my eye makeup, but I ran out so I decided to use this cleansing water Maree gave me as an alternative. I was shocked at how easily it removes my mascara and eye makeup. I soak a cotton pad, hold it over closed eyes for a few seconds and gentle wipe away any product. 

2. Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel - This cleanser has been a favorite of mine for years since it doesn't foam and gives a gentle exfoliation.  It does remove my makeup and leaves my skin so smooth. I ran out of my favorite cleansing oil a week before Maree wanted me to write this post but I still wanted to mention it because I continue to buy it again and again because it works wonders on my skin. 

3. Mila Moursi pH Balancing Toner - Again, this is another product I love and have used for quite a while. I use it at night as well as in the morning, spritzing it directly onto my face and wiping it away with a cotton pad. It really helps to keep my skin balanced and hydrated. 

4. Retrouve Revitalizing Eye Concentrate - A little goes a lonnnnnng way with this eye cream which is why I am still using it after many months. It was too rich for Maree but perfect for my dry eye area. It is especially a favorite during the winter and really helps to hydrate, smooth and firm the skin. 

5. Tatcha Luminous Overnight Memory Serum Concentrate - Maree introduced me to Tatcha a few years ago and I fell in love with the entire line. This is  my 2nd or 3rd jar of this concentrate because my face feels so much firmer when using regularly. I like to press it into my skin before my other serums or moisturizers, and it instantly absorbs making my skin look plump and hydrated.

6. Kate Somerville Mega-C Dual Radiance Serum - Maree told me I need vitamin c in my skincare routine so she gave me this serum to try. LOL I wasn't sure at first what results I would see, but after a month of applying it nightly my skin looked much brighter, more even-toned and a few of my pesky dark spots were beginning to fade. 

7. Ole Henriksen Invigorating Night Gel - I don't use this exfoliating gel nightly but love it 1-2x/week. It really helps to retexturize my skin and leave it exceptionally smooth. On the mornings after I use this, I notice that my foundation applies flawlessly. 

8. ReVive Moisturizing Renewal Cream Supreme - This was another product Maree had been using but felt I would see better results and she was right. This is a rich cream that is designed to help renew and retexturize, which is exactly what I see when I use this. It's gives a very gentle exfoliation and never irritates my skin, but I find that my skin became exceptionally glowy and radiant when I began incorporating this into my routine. 

9. Zelens Z Firm Face and Neck Cream - I love that this cream is great for both the face and neck. Even though I typically apply all my serums and moisturizers down to my decollete, the firming effects of this has really made a difference. I can especially see the change in my jawline and down the front of my neck, things definitely appear more supple and taut.

  1. Enjoyed reading this. I am so grateful that you are posting these, representing those of us who are a "Certain Age"! Thought of you this morning when I picked up a new cleansing balm at Sephora - the Green one from Farmacy. I, too, have used the cleansing oil from Tatcha but decided to give this one a whirl. Looking forward to your morning routine.

    1. The Farmacy cleansing balm is absolutely stunning - I need to pull that one out and use it tonight! :)
