There is nothing more satisfying than a perfectly executed skincare routine. The act of cleansing our faces and then patting on a curated assortment of products is akin to prayer for us. Plus, it makes us feel like we have it together, even if it’s a Tuesday night and we’ve had one too many glasses of wine at happy hour. Whether you love the ritual of nighttime skincare or think it’s a chore, we can all agree that there’s nothing more annoying than finding smudges of makeup on your towel when you go to dry your face.
