Post-Party Skincare


This year I declared New Year's day a "do-nothing" day. I wanted to start the new year off super relaxed with no major expectations for accomplishing anything that first day. Since I spent the night before getting all done up, celebrating, and staying out late I decided to go all out with a post-big night out routine. It helped me to feel better and feel like I had a fresh start for 2015. 

My first step was to use my Clarins Instant Eye Makeup Remover to get off any last bits of mascara/liner/sparkle from the night before. After eye makeup remover I used a gentle cleanser to remove any excess grime from the night before - I really like the Beautycounter cleanser. Then I ran a super hot bath using one of my favorite Lush Bath Bombs (big thanks to my brother's girlfriend Madison for supplying me with one). When I don't have any Lush Bath Bombs I love using the Bath & Body Works Lavender Bubble Bath. It gives loads of big bubbles and the lavender scent is so soothing. After a long bath I usually run the shower to wash my hair (I don't like washing my hair in the bath) and I used Paul Mitchell's Tea Tree Shampoo. This one has a hint of mint in it and feels so fresh and revitalizing on my scalp. 

The last step is to moisturize like crazy. After a long night out my skin is super dehydrated and definitely needs it. First up is serum in the form of (Ren makes my favorite), followed by Ren moisturizer. For my lips and hands I stick to my coveted Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream. Lastly, is full body moisturizing and for that I stay within the Elizabeth Arden range as well. Her Intensive Moisture Body Treatment is effective without being greasy. 

Of course during the whole process candles are an absolute must. Some of my favorites are by Diptyque, Jo Malone, and the Brooklyn Candle Studio

What is your favorite way to relax and revamp yourself after a big night of celebrating? Do you indulge in some extra skincare or do you stick to your regular routine?

  1. Added the REN products to my wishlist. I've been trying out a couple of REN products recently and I definitely do like them so far. Pricey, but well worth the money. xx

    1. REN skincare has totally changed my skin. Before it was always so hard to get makeup to stay and look nice throughout the day. I have super dry skin and the REN products have helped to correct it so much! For me, it was definitely worth the splurge!

  3. What a great way to ring in the new year! I think I forget to stop and treat myself to days like this from time to time. Being a twenty-something is hard work! You have inspired me to set an evening aside for a BBW Stress Relief soak, withtheir Eucalyptus Spearmint bubble bath!

    1. Pamper nights are a must, I don't do them as often as I should but I am always so happy once I do set aside the time!

  4. I can definitely use some skin revamping after a night out. I feel like this past month has been full of makeup and staying out late due to the holiday season and my skin could use a detox. Loved the products you featured in this post and one of my favorites to do is a mud mask such as Glam Glow.

    1. This past month has been so insane! I'm glad to be slowing down a bit (and having a few makeup free days here and there!) I have tried the Glam Glow masks once before and it was great - now I just need to get up the courage to splash out on a jar!

  6. Hi Faith,

    Sounds like a super duper relaxed first day of 2015. Awesome *_^

    I have tried REN products before, they are lovely. We used to have the brand her in the departmental store but not anymore... Love the fact that they are basically paraben-free and healthy products to use.

    I used to love Clarins tremendously due to its luxurious textures and lovely botanical scents but realized not all ingredients are safe. So, I have stayed away from it since, as much as I can *_^

    Lovely blog you have here.

    Cheers,
