Skincare Pt. 2: Evening routine

Hi guys! Happy Monday!  Last week I shared my morning skin routine as part one of this three part skincare series. You can read about my morning routine here.  

When it comes to evening skincare, I try to keep my routine really simple.  There is nothing worse than crawling up the stairs only to realize you have 20-30 minutes of skincare to perform before you can actually get into bed.  After removing my makeup, I use three products daily.
  (I'll be doing a post on cleansers & spot treatments later this week so stay tuned!) 

1. Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic Acid + Retinol Brightening Solution: I use this as a serum underneath my cream.  I always feel like putting something on under your cream just makes your cream work that much harder.  It also dampens your skin so that you're using less product when you apply, which is always a plus. Buy at Sephora here and Nordstrom here

2. Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic + Retinol Anti Aging Moisturizer: This is a great cream for the winter and is super hydrating.  I have been loving Ferulic Acid because it helps to even out skin tones and still works as an anti aging component.   Purchase at Sephora here and Nordstrom here.

3.  Caudalie Premier Cru Eye Cream: This eye cream is a splurge but worth it.  Every time I go into Sephora, I ask a different person what the best eye cream is, each and every one of them point me to this cream and I have loved using it.  My eyes feel super hydrated and *huge plus for me* I don't find it being so moisturizing that my mascara runs underneath it. Purchase at Sephora here and Nordstrom here  

Once a week, I like to use the Ferulic Acid Peel from Dr. Gross.  I usually do it on Thursday nights so my skin looks best over the weekend.  These pads are absolutely LIFE CHANGING.  When I use them, I wake up with my skin feeling absolutely unbelievable.  They make your skin really even and soft.  Eric even noticed the first time I used them.  They are a bit of a splurge, but I only use them once a week so the pack lasts a really long time.  I use this immediately after I wash my face and apply my skincare right after.

Clearly there is a bit of a theme here! I am loving the Ferulic + Retinol line of Dennis Gross in the evening.  I also know that its really easy to feel guilty about buying all new skincare when you aren't sure it will work.  Sephora offers this package that has everything I mentioned above in smaller version for only $59.  It is the perfect set for you to try everything and see how it makes your skin feel before you dive in and buy the full sized products.

Thanks for reading today! I hope you guys have a great week! 


  1. Thanks for sharing such an informative post. An anti-aging moisturizer helps to minimize fine lines. It is so effective that moisturizer is the secret ingredient in many anti-aging products like revitol anti aging solution.Using a moisturizer with sunscreen is fine. Just be sure that the product offers broad-spectrum coverage and an SPF of 30 or higher.

  2. It’s really very informative that I wanted ever, thanks for this.

  3. This place is stunning. The architecture is beautiful and the decoration is spectacular. Environment was transparent and resonant and warm and immediate. I loved these event venues and my experience here was very exciting.
