Hey guys, this is Mi-Anne and welcome to my sweet digs. Just kidding! It’s Beauty With Mi. If you guys have been watching my show for a while, which I sincerely hope you are/ if you’re not subscribed, please hit the subscribe button down below so we can hang out every Monday. This is a bit of a different episode for Beauty with Mi. I typically tend to show you guys new products or things that I’m trying for the first time and I don’t usually venture into the
realm of what I’m currently loving. But I thought it might be fun to show you
guys what I use at night in a sort of get unready with Mi — with an i — fashion. So without further ado I’m gonna stop rambling and let’s get into it. So the first thing I do when I get home from
work is take off my coat and my shoes. At this point it’s usually around 7pm and
I’m starving. So I’m making a chili that I have never
made before. We’ll see how it goes. Bootsie’s here too. Hi! Are you gonna help me cook? I missed you. She wants to get put down. Tonight I decide to make a veggie chili, which is adapted from a recipe from this blog. It’s a really simple recipe. It just involves onions, sweet potatoes, black beans, diced tomatoes, spices and then some quinoa just to make it a little heartier. And I also had a bunch of quinoa that I wanted to use up, so. I like chili cause you can kind of just throw
a bunch of stuff into it. Once the chili is simmering on the stove,
it takes about 50 minutes to cook so I usually head into the bathroom and take off my makeup. I don’t know about you guys but taking off
my makeup is one of my favorite parts of the night. I hate having makeup on all day and it’s
oily and I just need a clean slate. It’s kind of like taking off your bra, taking
off your makeup, getting into comfy pants. Those are the three. Or being naked. Whatever floats your boat. I get into the bathroom and I will use some
kind of cleansing oil or cream to remove my makeup. I wear waterproof mascara every single day
so I need stuff that will cut through waterproof mascara fast. So I’m currently using this cleansing cream
from Dermablend. I typically use cleansing oils, I find that
oil cuts through waterproof makeup the best. I was pretty skeptical that a cream would
work as fast as an oil but this does. It cuts through makeup really well. It does sting a little bit if you get it in
your eyes so be sure to be aware of that. Then to wash off all the residue from my makeup remover I usually double cleanse. And I’m using this Kat Rudu Coco Honey Papaya Enzyme Cleanser, which if you guys have seen my “Favorite Products from 2017” video,
you know that I love it. It’s so good. It smells like honey, like candied fruits. It is very gentle even though it does have
these enzymes that give a little bit of exfoliation. But it doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight. It gets off the cleanser really effectively. I use it morning and night. It is so good. Once my skin is clean, if I’m feeling it — if I’m not too lazy — I’ll throw on a mask. So today I’m using this one by The Ordinary. It is the AHA BHA peeling solution. I really like this brand. They’re very affordable. They have great stuff. This is a ten minute peel. It looks like this. Kinda looks like blood. And you just put it on your face and let it
chemically exfoliate the dead skin for about ten minutes. So during that time, I dedicate to cat stuff. So if you guys have seen my videos before
you know that I have a cat. Her name is Bootsie. She’s a Tuxedo and she’s so cute and I’m
obsessed with her. In the ten minutes that my mask is drying
I will usually feed her and then I will scoop her poops. It’s time. She likes to watch me while I scoop her poops just to make sure I’m doing it right. Then after I’m done with that, I wash my
hands thoroughly. Alright! So I’m going to hop in the shower now, but
as you can see, my shower curtain is completely clear. So I’m going to have to ask you to leave
while I take a shower and I will see you guys when I’m all clean. Bye! When I’m out I run to my room, change into
my pajamas and start my skincare routine. So my nighttime skincare routine isn’t super involved. It’s really just three products. A toner, a serum, and a moisturizer. Starting off with the toner, this is the Pixi
Rose Tonic. I love Pixi Glow Tonic. Pixi Glow Tonic is their original toner. It’s an exfoliating toner. It has glycolic acid in it. But they came out with this version, the rose version, that’s more hydrating. It has rose and elderflower in it. And I’m really enjoying it, especially in
the winter when my skin needs a little bit more moisture. This toner is really nice as a post-cleansing
step. It also smells like roses and I love roses. Then I move on to my serum and I love this
serum. It’s a Renée Rouleau Pore + Wrinkle Perfecting
Serum. I actually got a facial with Renée back in
December. It was so amazing. This serum is really great because it targets breakouts and it’s kind of the anti-aging serum. So it has lactic acid, glycolic acid, salicylic
acid, niacinamide, and alantoíne in it. Ever since I’ve been using this serum, my
skin has been really clear, my pores have been smaller. I just think my skin drinks it up and I’m
actually nearing the end of it and it’s making me really sad. So as the final step in my nighttime skincare routine, I’ll use a facial oil. I really like facial oils, especially for
nighttime. I find that they’re very hydrating, they
keep my skin from getting flaky. Ever since I started switching to using facial oils, I haven’t had that winter skin flakiness. So it’s been two years and I haven’t had
a crazy flake patch, so… I guess it’s working. I’m using this one from Pete Rivko, it’s
called the Balancing Facial Oil. It’s really nice. It’s very simple. There’s no added fragrance. It has avocado oil, jojoba oil, prickly pear
oil, and vitamin E in it. It absorbs quickly, it doesn’t get on my
sheets, it doesn’t make my face feel overly oily. Once my facial oil is on my face, I like to
use this Jade Gua Sha tool that I actually got and learned how to use from Sandra Lanshin, who is the founder of this wellness center called Treatment by Lanshin. I got facial acupuncture and Gua Sha from
her. She taught me how to use this Gua Sha tool basically to massage the product into your skin that improves circulation, drain a little
bit of lymph. I really like it. I gotta say, I don’t always remember to use it, but when I do, I do find the inflammation is down on my skin. It’s really great if you’ve had one too
many drinks or if you’re kind of lacking on sleep. It makes putting on your skincare a little
bit more fun. So once my skincare is done, at that point
my chili is probably done. And I come out to my living room to sit in front of the TV while I eat. I’m currently binge watching Netflix’s
Jessica Jones. Very good show. Highly recommend. After watching two, or three, or four episodes, I will retire to Bootsie and give her a little play sesh. So I like to carve out at least ten to fifteen
minutes a day dedicated to playing with her. I’ll play with her little mouse, or I’ll dangle her little toy for her, just to get her excited and get her a little tired before bed. Then I get in bed, and then I’ll scroll on my phone either on Instagram or Pinterest until I get
tired and go to sleep. So I hope that you enjoyed it. Let me know if there’s anything that you
think I should try. Skincare, mask-wise. Shows I should watch. Always looking for new stuff. Let me know in the comments and I will catch you guys next week. Bye! Thanks so much for watching, guys.

Everything seems so laid back, its got to be a bit stressful living a kinda public life…. Love the vid! The Ordinary and facial oils are Bae! I use the organic version of anything i can get my hands on……Thanks and Love from Louisiana, Cher😍🐊🐯💞

  3. Have you tried any of Miranda Kerr’s Kora Organics products? I love using the noni glow oil at night and make sure to carve out some “skincare me time” to use it. Haven’t tried the new eye oil but heard it’s pretty great too. Love your videos!

  4. Absolutely love these videos. ❤️ also think she should watch shadowhunters on Netflix. It's such a good show

  5. Have you watched the other Marvel Netflix shows? They are great. Jessica Jones is in Defenders and brings an interesting and comedic dynamic to the show.

  6. i wish you felt you had the freedom to wear no makeup wherever you go. i get a similar feeling, as tho wearing makeup could be a risk to my life.

  7. you already using a peeling cleanser two times a day which is way too often, why use a mask to exfoliate i dont think thats good for your skin. you look good tho

  8. You should actually play with bootsy before you feed her. I learned it from “my cat from hell” show. The food will then be a reward for her. Also after she’s worn out from playing and then you feed her she will be all pooped out and content at night🙂

  9. Love this video! Thanks for Sharing, Mi!! Can you tell us where you got that jade ring?! I seriously LOVE it!

  10. I do the exact same routine. Minus the cat.
    Glad I'm not the only one bingewatching Netflix after work!
    Ha!

  11. I loved it so much! Also the contrast of the orange eyeshadow, the red lipstick and the pink hair is so amazing!
    You should watch Broad City! It's the best show ever!

  12. It's super simple but u should use Cera Ve Facial Clenser it's amazing. It doesn't burn when gets in eyes and hydrates ur skin

  13. Just a little tip, its nicer for your skin to spread the product upward on your face, not downward.

  14. I've bought the catrice waterproof mascara after you recommended it and really like it but my DHC cleansing oil is unable to take it all off, is the dermablend a more potent option?

  15. You should definitely check out this super natural, yet affordable brand of skin care called cocokind. They sell it at Whole Foods and it is da bomb dot com !!! I highly recommend their chlorophyll mask, it is so simple but it just fixes any problems you might have. They also have a super cool team. I am not like affiliated with them just love them a lot!!
