These I use before I wash my face just to get the first layer of makeup or anything thats built up throughout the day. And the smell help relax me before bed.
I use the night face wash before bed to just help get any aggravating gunk off my face so that I don't have anything sitting in my pores. Plus the ingredients help relax and refresh my face before bed time.
For the redness and just added refreshing feeling I apply this after washing my face to just help with any left over gunk. I do this after anytime I wash my face.
