Burt's Bees Cleansing Oil for Nighttime Routine

I talk about skin care a lot, and am constantly trying to find the best morning and night routines for my skin. I like to keep them different because I have more time at night to give my skin the extra attention (most nights) and want to keep my routine easy and manageable in the morning. I have been keen on NATURAL products lately, and have been incorporating products to both my morning and nighttime skin routine. I’m starting to learn more about them and how natural on your body is just as important as natural going into your body for health and great looking skin!

It’s been a whirlwind of a summer for my skin – I’ve had too many nights where the makeup stayed on until the next morning (lazy much?) and some weeks of very poor eating and lack of working out. My skin is very sensitive and quickly reacts to changes in routine or habits. That’s why I decided it will be best to stick to natural products while I get back on track with everything. I am so glad to have found out that Burt’s Bees, one of my favorite natural beauty brands, recently introduced their Cleansing Oil!

Burt's Bees Skin Care


Now if you have followed any of my past beauty posts, you know that I discovered how awesome oils and cleansing oils can be for your skin – of course with the reaction that many people with oily skin have – how can oil be good for oily skin? Using cleansing oil will NOT make your face oily, I repeat, it will NOT make your face oily! The Cleansing Oil is composed of natural moisturizers, including Coconut and Argan oils. The Coconut Oil is loaded with Vitamin E that helps to clean the skin without overdrying. It is great for my nighttime routine (along with a headband to keep my hair back), as it helps to gently remove makeup and oil without leaving an oily residue. This is my first step to healthy-looking skin.

1. Pump Product into Dry Hands

A clean face! Such a great feeling at the end of a long day!

I then use Burt’s Bees Spot Treatment to take care of those stubborn break outs. I have been breaking out on my chin a lot lately, so I’ll just dab a little bit on each of those spots. After a nighttime face and eye cream, my skin is healthy and ready to rejuvenate for the next day!

Olay Fresh Effects {Dew Over!} Hydrating Gel Moisturizer

Olay Fresh Effects Review

For the longest time I thought the older I got, the easier it would be to get a full eight hours of sleep. While I’m no longer studying in the library until midnight, sometimes I stay up late whether it is to catch up on my favorite show, Skype with a friend I haven’t seen in a long time or scroll through Instagram/Pinterest. Totally my own fault… but since I’m already starting to see signs of aging (I’ll blame stress and lack of sleep), it is important to have a good morning routine to try to make up for the lack of sleep.

Olay Fresh Effects {Dew Over!} Hydrating Gel Moisturizer

When I was given the opportunity to try out and review Olay Fresh Effects {Dew Over!} Hydrating Gel Moisturizer, I immediately saw that when eight hours of sleep wasn’t possible for me, the Fresh Effects Hydrating Gel Moisturizer delivered the look of beauty sleep in an instant. I have been using this moisturizer every morning for over two weeks and it has always given me an instant, refreshed look. I put a little bit on before adding my daily SPF moisturizer and it has kept my skin glowing throughout the day. The best part about this moisturizer is that it can be used whenever you feel the need for some extra moisture, which will be especially helpful this winter!

Olay Fresh Effects {Dew Over!} Hydrating Gel Moisturizer Review

I have always liked the idea of a hydrating gel since it is lighter than typical moisturizers and beauty creams, so I was so happy when I loved Olay Fresh Effects {Dew Over!} after using it for just a few days. When I opened it up for the first time, I felt like I had stepped into a spa because the scent of the gel was so wonderful. It is the perfect part of my morning beauty routine, and will continue to be the perfect hydrating moisturizer when I need something extra this winter.

So if you are looking for a fresh start to your day, go for the Olay Fresh Effects {Dew Over!} Hydrating Gel Moisturizer and look like you got your beauty sleep!
