I know what you’re thinking, and no, I didn’t go all Mike Tyson and get a sweet facial tattoo. Nope, I fell in love with Aveeno products (and I liked it!)
Instead, I think I nailed down a nighttime routine! I’ve been looking at YouTubers, bloggers, and Pinterest peeps to help me out.
I’m getting older, so I figured now is an excellent time to learn a routine.
I am in NO WAY shape, or form a beauty blogger; how do y’all make it look so easy??
So I also did a ton of product research; I have really sensitive skin, so I have been super cautious of what I put on it. My skin is so sensitive if I walk through the perfume floor of the mall, my face breaks out for days.
I’ve used Aveeno lotion for years because it doesn’t aggravate the ever-loving shit out of my sensitive skin, I wanted a face wash that wouldn’t make my face dry and weird feeling, but I also wanted to follow it up with a moisturizer.
I had no idea where to turn, so I went to Google. I searched a few different products with a few other reviews. I kept coming across how great Aveeno products are, well I decided to do a little research on their products (it turns out they’re fantastic!)
Without further ado, I promptly hit up Amazon and got myself an Aveeno body wash, an Aveeno face wash, and an Aveeno moisturizer. I waited like a child for it to arrive to see if everything lived up to its rep.
It arrived on a Thursday afternoon, so I used it that night; I was blown away! The face wash left my face feeling smooth, soft, and even moisturized already. I put a few dabs of the moisturizer on my cheeks and forehead, then rubbed it in gently. I think I heard angels singing at this point.
Next up, bath time! I love baths; they calm and relax me. I pretend my stress washes away in the water and down the drain where all dirty things go. So I grab my rubber ducky, a book (usually a business-related book), my bath caddy tray (this thing is fantastic!), a glass of wine, and phone (not for social media or messages but for lo-fi, I love relaxing to it!
I lathered up with the coconut-smelling body wash, and my skin was instantly hydrated and not just because of the water but the way it felt as it washed away. I immediately knew I’d never use another body wash again. This one was perfect, and the scent lingers all day! After everything was dry, I used my trusty Aveeno lotion, which is unscented, letting the coconut fragrance through.
These products have quickly become a part of my nighttime routine; it’s now my favorite part of the day. I know I get to relax and make myself feel good and pampered. It’s the small things in life that are the greatest.
Here is the finished product after everything is washed and applied, since it’s a nighttime routine there is no make up, and I do apologize in advance.
I had a lot of fun creating this routine, and I’ve stuck to it for a while and don’t think I’ll give it up anytime soon. I’ll link the products I use below; check them out if you have sensitive skin like me!
