My Nighttime Skincare Routine - Summer 2012

I mentioned before that I change my skincare routine fairly often.  For reference, I'm in my 30s and I have normal/combination skin with occasional breakouts .  I like to try new things and I have a skincare obsessed BFF and cousin who occasionally suggest products they love.  But for right now, these are the nighttime skincare products I am currently using:

  1. Kose Softymo Super Point Makeup Remover - I use this to remove my makeup, even stubborn waterproof Japanese mascara which I have on rotation.  I put a little of this gel-like lotion on a cotton ball and swipe it over my face.
  2. Lush Herbalism - I take a pea size portion of this cleanser and then mix it with water to turn it into a paste.  After rubbing it on my face in a circular motion, I wash it off.
  3. Sana Hadonomy Collagen Facial Mist - This is a pretty substantial facial mist, thicker than most.  It is refreshing and moisturizing.  I use it at night because I don't think it would be good under makeup. At least not for someone with oily zones.  I spray this directly on my face.  I use about 3 squirts.
  4. Lancome Primordiale Night [Discontinued] - This was a gift from my mom who loves Lancome.  It's a lightweight night cream.  During the winter, I prefer something richer like La Mer. 
  5. Shiseido Benefiance Eye Cream - A more heavy duty eye cream.  I like the texture.  Its creamy and rich without being super greasy, although I would not wear this during the day under makeup.
  6. Weleda Everon Lip Balm - A good lip balm, not greasy or glossy.  Has a slight vanilla rose scent.
What are your favorite nighttime skincare products?  I always like to try new things so suggestions welcome!
