Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Skin Care

I thought I would create a series of discussion where we could all share our make-up stashes. This is just meant to be fun.

 

How it works: Just take a picture of the stash mentioned in this post and upload to the discussion board. Feel free to tell us what you like best. I know some people would love that :smileywink:

 

Ok ladies time to share your skin care stash! This includes everything that you would use on your face. There will be another post for body care.

 

This is the 6th in a series of post I will do.

 

Still to come: body care, hair care and brushes.  Might do one with samples as well. :smileywink:

 

For the new comers also check out the face, eyes, lips, nails and fragrances series.

 

******************************************************

Really into The Body Deli! Love this company. It smells so good and fresh especially the melon cream :smileywink: I also like to try out new things and try to stick to natural brands.

Plantgarden dear, stream lining is a good thing, but most of us on BT are enablers and addicted for many reasons to new products and sharing the info with each other - the advice i receive about products on BT is way better than the reviews listed with the products in the ordering section or from bloggers - the BT people provide great insight and detail - we may stream line from time to time, but at our discretion in our own time and way - many of us donate to shelters and other organizations on a regular basis - this is our thing and its not a bad thing b/c it is not your thing

 

i congratulate you on your ability to be a minimalist in this department; a skill i have yet to master - brace yourself as you will be seeing a lot of product porn on this site - fair warning

Oh I'm sorry if I offended anyone.   I didn't mean to.  Sometimes the inflection of voice is lost on the written word.  I have a very dry sense of humor.  I was referring to BeautyTester's comment about "trying really hard to reduce my skin care stash this year".     And I mean come on,....with a name like BeautyTester,...if she showed up with five products we'd have to rename her!

Contrary to my feelings toward cosmetics, I'm a minimalist when it comes to skincare. I don't have a picture at the moment, but I'll try to remember to add one later My staples are, in no particular order: 

 

1. Anthony Logistics for Men Glycolic Cleanser (love, love, love);

2. Shiseido Benefiance Eye Cream;

3. Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream; 

4. La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Fluide Extrême 50+;

5. Avène Eau Thermale Très Haute Protection Emulsion SPF 50+ (also sunscreen -- I switch between these two);

6 Skinceuticals C E Ferulic Serum;

7. Retin A Micro .1%;

8. Tazorac .1% (a stronger retinoid than Retin-A; I go back and forth between these, but currently using Tazorac for anti-aging);

9. La Roche Posay Surgras Shower Gel;

10. REN Glycolactic Skin Renewal Peel Mask; and

11. Kate Somervile EradiKate (I don't use this often, but when I do, it's the best spot treatment).

I definitely have a lot of Ole Henriksen and Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta peels, they're my favorite. Also my Fresh Umbrian Clay bar, even though I didn't put it in the picture because it's a lot of pieces right now.

I am such a skincare junkie... this thread has me drooling like nobody's business :smileyvery-happy:

 

I may take photos of my stash later, but my stash tends to make me wince :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Skin Care

I decided to separate my picutres into the time of day I apply the products.  I hadn't realized how much I put on at night!

 

My night time products:

(I was trying to use up the CeraVe and Cetaphil cleansers so I started using them together and I love the result!)

 

My day time products:

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Skin Care

BeautyTester the skincare addict reporting for duty. I've been trying really hard to reduce my skincare stash this yr. Anyways, all good skincare starts with removing your makeup, heh, any guess which is my favorite?

2013-11-22 19.22.48.jpg

Once makeup is off then cleanse:

2013-11-22 19.26.10.jpgAnd for those flaky days.....

2013-11-22 19.31.05.jpgAnd assortment of masks, yes I do realize I'm missing a hydrating mask.

2013-11-22 19.36.17.jpgAnd facial sprays, but I usually use them throughout the day.

2013-11-22 19.45.20.jpgI like the toner that needs cotton pads/balls for regimen. That's leftover Origins Perfect World toner in the Caudalie bottle.

2013-11-22 19.46.40.jpg

And assortment of serums

2013-11-22 20.07.40.jpgAnd night time moisturizers:

2013-11-22 20.12.07.jpg

And day time moisturizers (SPF):

2013-11-22 20.18.10.jpg

And eye cream + sample packets:

2013-11-22 20.24.25.jpg*phew* That was tiring. Oh I might have missed a couple things from my office and my parents house. Otherwise that's it. o.o

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Skin Care

Love! Glad to see other people organize their skincare like i do haha! especially the samples! I LOVE the KGD spa water by the way - it is the ONLY thing i use to remove makeup :smileyhappy:

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Skin Care

Umm, this is actually kind of great :smileyhappy:. Thanks for sharing beautytester! I wish Sephora still carried the Super by Perricone line :smileysad:

ChicDabbler

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Skin Care

True dat. The packaging for the Super line is wonderful, I like the frosted glass and looks forward to reuse them. I got them when Sephora had the big purge in sales. Gotta admit I'm not a big fan of the detox/watercress elixir tho, every time I use it, I think "ah, wilted lettuce...." to myself, lol.

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Skin Care

Ooh so many nice things. I love the Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu serum and eye serum. I'm almost out :smileysad: How do you like his face mist that is in the grey bottle?

ChicDabbler

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Skin Care

Oh the PTR camu camu serum is nice, altho I haven't tried the eye serum yet since I'm finishing up the Mario Badescu eye sample. I like the mist in grey bottle, it's a-bunch-of-things-I-don't-remember/fragrance/irritant free but contains vitamin etc. It's super mild and I enjoy it in the winter (Clinique toner 2 for me in the summer, need something drying/exfoliating for oil control), great if you have sensitive or combo/dry skin. It was marked new and on sale for ~$16 a while back but Sephora stopped carrying it right after I brought it. o.O

Oh well, it should last me a while.

OMG. Simplify your life!  You could never use all that stuff!  Pick 5 and donate the rest to a women's shelter.

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Skin Care

I know you are entitled to your opinion and I don't mean to be rude but I didn't create these threads so people could pass judgement. It's for fun. I'm glad she shared what she owns with the rest of us.

ChicDabbler

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Skin Care

[ Edited ]

OMG. Don't judge me! Yes I know you meant well and yes I am a bit sensitive about it. You don't tell someone who has focused on collected something over the years to just pick five and donate the rest. Ever collected perfumes? makeup? figurines? toys? stamps?

 

I do my share of good deeds/donation thank you very much, and I'll have you know I have tried/used up and documented ~150 skincare products over the past two years, which does not include the ones from this picture. It's a hobby and I use them as reference for recommending things on BT. Yes I am trying to reduce my stash, but I am not looking for advice on how. Thanks but no thanks.

Thank you so much for clarifying!  Much appreciated! :smileyhappy:

Don't worry about it, yes I know what you were referring to. My first sentence was meant to mirror your first sentence rather than my actual feeling if that's what you are referring to. Yes I was peeved, but I'm not going crazy (unless you were physically trying to take all of them away from me and if that's the case, oh lady, you will have an easier time pulling teeth out of a shark's mouth I assure you). =X

 

ps. And I think it's nice of you to own up to what you said instead of trying to edit, evade or delete what you said.

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Skin Care

Edit:  I didn't mean to offend.

Re: Show me yours, I’ll show you mine series – Skin Care

I hope one day I can try to focus on minimizing too, it's not easy at all! My stash is still half unpacked, but when I moved  I had separate boxes labeled Moisturizers, Cleansers, Body Lotion, Eyeshadow, Blush, Perfume, Shower Gel, etc. I don't want to know how big a box I would have needed for everything to go together, hahaha. 5 things, honestly. :smileytongue:
