Skin Routine: Nightime

Hey everyone, It's India here with my nighttime skincare routine! I have accumulated a multitude of products that work for me and these are the ones that I have found most effective. I have combo dry skin that gets oily on my nose and cheeks (surprisingly not forehead). 

(Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser, 6.77 oz, $6.99)
So first I gently cleanse my face of any makeup with the Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser (6.77 oz). One thing about this cleanser is that it is difficult to wash off because it is not very liquidy, it has more of a gel consistency. However, this is one of the best cleansers I've ever had in my life, if you've never used it before, the first time you try it, your face will feel really cold and you can feel the charcoal drawing out all the bad things in your skin. It's very mild which I appreciate because my skin doesn't react well to harsh cleansers. My high end comparison of this cleanser (well at least it's effects on the skin) is the Lancome Creme Radiance (4.2 oz, $25) but I like the price tag of the Biore one better. 
(Neutrogena Acne Wash in Pink Grapefruit, 6 oz, $8.49)
Next I use the Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash in Pink Grapefruit to cleanse my face. First let me say, this stuff smells amazing. It doesn't dry out my skin even though I double cleanse and my dermatologist even recommends it. It contains Salicylic Acid so it does fight breakouts, however it is quite strong and can irritate super sensitive skin. 

(Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel, 1 oz, $25)
Next I put this gel on any blemishes I can feel coming through my skin. Now I have seen a significant difference when I use this product but it does burn a little bit because the Salicylic acid is really strong. I do blow through this and it gets expensive so use it sparingly.

(CeraVe Moisturizing Cream, 19 oz, $15.99)
Lastly, I use the Cera Ve moisturizing cream, to restore moisture to my face. This stuff WORKS. I used to be the biggest fan of the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizer but I've switched over to this one because it absorbs so fast and your skin feels hydrated due to the hyaluronic acid. This isn't anything for daytime though because it is very thick. Also, my dermatologist recommended this to me too for sensitive and dry skin. 

Then I go to bed and sleep the night away :)

Hi there! I'm India, a girl just living on this crazy rollercoaster called life. I tend to think my specialty is in drugstore products but I can dabble in high end sometimes (but my wallet can't)


  1. I haven't tried any of these but I happen to actually like some Neutrogena products especially the pore minimizer and blackhead remover. Great post!

    1. Ooh I've never seen the pore minimizer! I'll have to look for it at the store :)

  2. I use the charcoal cleanser. I did a review on a sample pack I got from a friend I believe. I loved it so much that I just had to get a bottle.
