I dont take my makeup off when I go to bed every single night. I know, I know -- its terrible for my skin and Im going to regret it later. But when it comes down to it, Im the laziest person ever about my nighttime skin care routine.

I see beauty bloggers with fancy face brushes and clay masks doing multiple skin treatments every night. As much as I wish I could enjoy these luxuries, Im just too tired.

Luckily, I found some cheap, fast and easy products that are a lazy girl's best friend:

1. Pink grapefruit Neutrogena face wash

OK you guys -- Ive been using this stuff since I was like 14 years old, and I absolutely love it. It gently exfoliates the skin, smells heavenly and doesnt leave your face feeling dry. It simply makes it feel clean.

My husband also started using it when we got married, and his acne totally cleared up. I splash some on my face in the morning and sometimes at night. So easy and seriously awesome.

Buy it here.

2. Neutrogena OIL-FREE makeup remover wipes

Neutrogena just knows whats up. I searched and searched for the perfect makeup remover, but everything left my face feeling super greasy. I didn't love that, but then I found these little beauties, and my life has changed. Plus, I can take off my makeup from the comfort of my bed.

Buy them here.

3. Bior charcoal pore strips

I dont know about you, but I get tiny little blackheads on my nose that are pretty annoying. I tried a few brands of pore strips, but these were the best. I felt like they really cleared out my pores and left my nose looking better than the other ones I tried.

Buy them here.

4. Vitamin E oil

I havent personally tried this, but my cousin absolutely swears by it. She told me that anytime she has a zit, she puts a smidge of this oil on and the zit is gone the next morning. Its basically magic. So if youve got a big event coming up and your face decides to break out, this may be the fastest way to clear up the situation.

Buy it here.

5. CeraVe moisturizing lotion

My sister bought me a bottle of this stuff for Christmas after she fell in love with it, and it makes my skin so happy. Sometimes, especially during the fall and winter, my face gets super dry. Typically, when I put lotion on it, I break out.

Not with this lotion! Its so lightweight and moisturizing. Plus it doesnt feel greasy. I put it on my face all the time for extra softness, and it works like a charm. As an added bonus, it doesnt have a scent so you wont get sick of a smell.

Buy it here.

No one wants to spend an hour prepping their skin before bed, so these are some awesome options if you want the best skin ever. Hopefully you find these products as helpful as I did!
