Nightstand Essentials

June 16, 2015

The other night I was sitting in bed and it hit me that I have “essential” items that I always keep on my nightstand.

I even have a bit of a bedside routine (=


Starting with the ambiance—I like to have fresh flowers around my house and especially in the bedroom.  Not only does it bring a certain brightness and an essence of nature, but keeping flowers bedside will make your room smell amazing!


These flowers are gardenias from my garden and they’re VERY fragrant and beautiful.


Tissues are always a nightstand must!


A good practice in general, but a MUST since I have white sheets, I like to cleanse my face before I rest.  These Yes To Cucumber Facial Wipes are fantastic.  They’re perfect for removing makeup and have a mild cumber scent that is very soothing and refreshing.

If I have the time, I love using a sheet mask in bed.  These Cucumber Masks by BioRepublic are great for smoothing and evening skin tone.


Since my lips tend to get drier as the night progresses, I like to use a super hydrating lip balm.  This SuperSoothe E Lip Balm by M-61 is a new favorite of mine and it definitely gets the job done!


Lastly, hand cream…it’s a necessity! I’m currently using the M-61 Vitablast C Hand Cream.

I always like to keep hand cream bedside.  It’s a great reminder to moisturize your hands at night, which is the most effective time since you’re hands are at rest and not being used. After that, I’m ready for bed!

Hope you enjoy this post!

    I used to have a night stand routine, but my daughter keeps snatching the things and hiding them, so i have kind of given up on that.
