Evening Skin Routine

Earlier I had posted my Morning Skin Routine and now I will share my nightly routine. Since while I am sleeping I do not need to worry about maintaining that perfectly matte, photo ready (yes, I live my life anticipating paparazzi behind every bush) look, I tend to pile on heavier cream products that will work their moisturizing magic on my skin overnight.
First I remove my makeup with some coconut oil. I bought this jar from Trader Joe's and before anyone asks, I have no clue what that pink stuff is at the bottom, this is an empty jar and I have since gotten a new one. This works better than any other remover I have used and breaks down even the most waterproof makeup that I cement onto my face.

After I have stripped my face of makeup, I cleanse it using one of these two products. Usually I reach for my Garnier: The Radiance Renewer Cleansing Gelee because it is a nice and gentle everyday cleanser with a refreshing citrus scent that is in a very fun gel form. When I move the bottle around, the gelee kind of glomps from side to side making me think of Flubber (if anyone can follow that description at all), you just need to find this stuff in store and stare at it for awhile, it's mesmerizing. The other product is the Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser which is something I use every other week or when I feel like my skin needs a more deep scrubbing treatment.
Once my face is feeling all fresh and clean, I smear on a layer of Garnier Skin Renew Dark Spot Corrector. This stuff is super thick and hydrating and I really do believe that it has helped to diminish the dark spots on my skin from acne scars and to help even out my skin tone.
This stuff is a miracle when it comes to surprise acne. A small dab of DDF Acne Control Treatment at night and in the morning nearly all of the redness is gone and it will have shrunk considerably. I received a small sample size of this from my Birchbox and I will mourn the day when I run out of it because it really does work great, but it is a little too pricey for me to buy a full sized one especially since the acne is much more controlled on my face now. Good thing the sample is a very generous size and it only takes a small dot to be effective.
While this step isn't exactly skin related, it is beauty related, so I decided to include it anyways. Next I will apply Latisse to both my bottom and top lashline and I must say that this stuff really works. Before I started using it I had basically no lashes, now they are long and thickening and I just love it. Quite pricey but I say worth every penny.
My last step before I can collapse in exhaustion from all this primping is to apply my Kiehl's Creamy Avocado Eye Treatment. This is a very thick and creamy (as the name alludes) eye cream that is super hydrating. In my quest to avoid baggy eyes and wrinkles, this is the perfect product to use while I am still in my early 20's. This stuff applies smoothly and turns almost watery feeling when you pat it in. Sounds weird, but trust me this is the first word in hydration.

What's in your evening skin care lineup? Have you tried any of these products that I love?
