When it comes to my nightstand, there are a few key things I simply cannot live without. Let's get real... I am not really a night owl nor an early bird. I am some form of a permanently exhausted pigeon and therefore getting out of my warm, comfortable bed is pretty much a no-go for me any time after I am snuggled in under the covers. So for me, these are my four nightstand essentials:
Four Nightstand Essentials
Do It All Cleansing Cloths
At the end of the long day when, as per usual, I have already fallen asleep on the couch and then have to sleepily mosey on up to bed, the last thing I want to have to do is wash my face. But honestly, I love washing the day's accumulation of makeup, dirt and oil off my face and falling asleep feeling refreshed. So lately I have been keeping these Olay Daily Facials Daily Clean 4-in-1 Water Activated Cleansing Cloths nearby. Unlike other cleansing cloths I have used, these ones are textured to really get the grime and they're 4-in-1, meaning they have the power of a scrub, toner, mask and cleaner. Um, heck yes. It's like the lazy girls guide to beauty.
And by the way, I love that these cleansing cloths are not pre-soaked because usually mine dry out by the time I am able to finish the box. You just simply soak them in water and then rub to lather. Easy peasy. Plus, these cleansing cloths are super travel-friendly for when you don't want to pack your entire beauty counter with you, which is always a plus in my book.
Wearing my silk sleep mask is a must for me. It blocks out the light from the moon, my phone and our humidifier, AND because it's silk, over time it keeps the delicate skin around my eyes from rubbing on rough cotton and wrinkling. Not to mention I feel glamorous and just like Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's. (They are also great for travel, too, by the way).
I love turning off the world and tuning into myself (and I am not talking about in a sexual way, although they work great for that too haha) and candles are the perfect way to unwind and feel calm. I don't know anyone who isn't mesmerized by the flicker of a flame. Candles are a simple yet sacred way to de-stress in my world. I love my MAME soy scented candles (they are like my own little bedroom aromatherapy). And PS, more to love because they are made right here in sunny Arizona.
One of my biggest pet peeves is dry lips. I cannot go to bed (or wake up) without lip balm. Or pretty much go anywhere without it, let's be honest. To ensure my lips are always kissable, I keep my favorite lip balm within arm's reach right next to my bedside. Lately I have been using COOLA's Mineral Lip Balm because it has SPF 30 and I like to use it both before bed and in the morning before heading out the door for my daily run with Wookie (our maltipoo).
