Daylight Savings Time takes place tomorrow at 2:00 AM – and you know what that means… and extra hour of sleep! Having a nighttime beauty routine can be a form of self-care. It doesn’t need to be long or complicated, but taking care of your skin after a long day can help you be prepared to wake up fresh-faced and ready to take on the next day with confidence. Your skin is also exposed to many kinds of environmental stressors throughout the day so it’s helpful to cleanse and nourish your skin at night for that reason as well.
- Always take off your makeup and cleanse your skin before you go to sleep, even if you are pressed for time!
- Look for sleeping masks and nighttime creams, face oils, or serums that are designed to do the work for you while you sleep.
- Although it might seem obvious, don’t underestimate the power of getting enough sleep each night.
With that being said, today I’ll be sharing with you some of Birchbox’s favorite nighttime products! You can purchase all of these products (and more) on the Birchbox website.
The Nighttime Beauty Kit is a Birchbox exclusive that contains a full nighttime beauty routine, including a sonic tool that removes every trace of makeup to a pillow spray to help lull you to sleep.

This ultra relaxing pillow spray will help you catch some z’s. It’s packed with 100% pure essential oils, including calming lavender, patchouli, and chamomile – all of which work together to help lull you to sleep faster and help you wake up feeling more refreshed. The proof is in the stats: 89% of users in an independent study fell asleep faster and 92% felt more alert the next morning.
When your throat is feeling parched, you go for a tall glass of water. When your complexion is especially thirsty, you treat it with this powerful hydrating mask. Packed with nourishing, energizing actives, including hyaluronic acid, raw honey, and ginger root, it provides immediate, deep hydration and seals in moisture to enhance skin’s radiance and suppleness. The result? A healthy, glowing, and altogether rejuvenated complexion.
Meet a higher level of hydration with this deeply rich yet lightweight cream gel. Infused with macro hyaluronic acid for a double dose of moisture, plus moringa oil and natural extracts, it quenches skin and keeps it that way all day without the use of silicones. Your complexion appears more plump and even, and feels ultra refreshed thanks to the formula’s gel-based texture (good for oily to combination skin) and cooling sensation. You’ll also feel good knowing it doesn’t contain any parabens, mineral oil, or artificial colors that could potentially irritate or clog your pores.
If it’s true that eyes are the window to the soul, then keep yours looking their best with this serum. Powered by ChronoluxCB Technology, it maximizes your body’s nighttime repair process to address signs of aging. Even though it’s gentle enough for the delicate skin around your eyes, it still delivers an intense dose of ingredients because of its lighter serum consistency. Wear alone if you have oilier skin or underneath the Advanced Night Repair Eye Synchronized Complex II if your eyes are dryer.
The annoying part about washing your face? Not feeling like your face is actually clean when you’re done. This cleanser contains a blend of pure botanical oils, squalene, and evening primrose which together effectively dissolve even the most stubborn, long-wearing makeup without over-drying your skin. The oil-to-milk consistency leaves skin balanced, replenished, and yup, totally clean.
