Current Night Time Face Routine | Oily Combination Skin

Hey guys!  Today it's all about my face routine before bed.  I know there are many people who go through the struggle of falling asleep with makeup on, but I'm the complete opposite.  If I don't go through my night time face routine, I won't be able to sleep!  I've been pretty consistent with the products I've been using in my current routine, so I figured I would share it!

FYI - I have combination oily/ oily skin.

If I have makeup on, I'll use Target's makeup remover cleansing towelettes.  These are comparable to the Neutrogena night calming makeup wipes, but you can get them at a cheaper price!

I use the Clinique Liquid Facial Soap as my cleanser every night.  Every other day I'll exfoliate with the St. Ives Apricot scrub before cleansing.  I've been using this exfoliator for years, and I love it!  It makes my skin feel very smooth and clean.

After I wash my face I use a toner.  I love the Clinique clarifying lotion for combination oily skin.  This gets all the extra dirt that was left behind after washing and it feels very cooling and refreshing after I apply it.

Then I moisturize.  This is a very important step in my skin routine.  Even though I have oily skin I get dry spots, and I hate the feeling of dry skin on my face.  I use Clinique's dramatically different moisturizing gel.  This moisturizer is for combination oily to oily skin.  I love the gel consistency, the way it applies, and how it makes my skin feel.

I use coconut oil around my eyes.  This is a great natural way to moisturize the under eye area.  I always make sure to dab it on and not rub it in.

The last thing I do before bed is moisturize my lips (dry lips is a pet peeve of mine).  I use Maybelline's Babylips lip balm.

Now I can sleep peacefully! xoxo


  1. i have oily skin too and it irritates me to sleep with make up too! im trying to treat my acne with retin A cream so i dont moisturize and it leaves my skin dry/oily (so confusing) . do you have any ideas?

    1. I think always using a moisturizer is important. Sometimes if your skin isn't getting enough moisture, it will produce more oil and that oil could lead to breakouts. I'm no expert, but finding the perfect moisturizer might help you. Earlier this year my skin went through a VERY dry stage, and I started using the Clinique Dramatically Different moisturizer. It did amazing things! You could give that a try! Thanks for reading :)

    2. *Clinique Dramatically Different moisturizing LOTION...not the gel one I talked about in my blog post :)
