Daily Skincare - what are you using?

[ Edited ]

Often people ask for recommendations on a skincare routine or for specific products/combinations.  This might be a place to share your everyday skincare, both AM and PM.  A skincare "what are you wearing" as it were.  Hope this is useful.

 

*Age - 40

Skin type - oily/combination

Current skin condition - quite dehydrated (winter/indoor heating)*

 

01/17/16 - AM skincare in the order I used

1. Nude Jelly cleanser (love)

2. Pixi Glow tonic (5% glycolic toner - love)

3. Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Spritz (sample)

4. Radical Skincare Youth Infusion serum - hydrating and anti-ageing (new to me.  Testing)

5. Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream (like)

6. Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine cream (really like as an AM moisturizer)

 

I will try to post PM skincare tonight so the post can be comprehensive.

 

General comments - Okay skin.  Apparently the age between 38-42 is a transformational time in hormones (dehydrated skin/spots), so I am more aware of how my skin performs/reacts .  My skincare definitely has more "actives" now than before.

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

@greenchilli I am trying to find a fragrance similar to the Aurelia oil, and this is all your fault! Smiley Happy I love the smell, and it's also somehow making me better looking. At least that's what I assume, based on recent real-life compliments. Then, yesterday my husband said my face smelled really good. It was Aurelia. 

 

So - fragrance recommendations welcome? And feel free to evangelize anything else that will make me better in general.

@fairlywell haha!  I don't know of an eact AUrelia scent replica, but there is a pattern.

 

Neroli is one of my favourite scents amongst a select few.  You will see a theme in what I use :-)

 

Aurelia has that distinct Neroli scent, as does UMA body oil (Neroli, Sandalwood, Frankinscence), and Tom Ford Neroli Portofino.  

 

- TF Neroli Portofino is my signature scent.  

- I use Uma body oil after shower.  I highy recommend this if you aren't averse to body oils.  It absorbs well, is not greasy, makes skin super soft, and has a light scent that lingers.

- Sometimes I layer a tiny bit of Tom Ford Neroli Portofino over.

 

*ETA - I also have Tom Ford Neroli Porofino Body Oil and Body cream.  I am fond of the smell, but don't care for the oil or cream.  They are not as hydrating and softening as I would like.  In fact, UMA oil is of far superior quality than the TF oil.

 

When I don't use Uma oil, Clinique Body Butter (it is unscented) is my staple.

Thank you! I actually picked up a sample of the Tom Ford Neroli Portofino Aqua yesterday, I'm on the right track! I am also thinking of ordering the Aurelia body oil, some of the reviews say it has a lasting scent.

Sunday Night Facial.

 

Age - 42

Skin type - oily

Skin Condition - Can't complain

1. Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing balm

2. May Lindstrom problem Solver

3. Pixi Glow Tonic - I typically follow up Problem Solver with a milder than usual acid exfoliator.

4. UMA Deeply Clarifying oil - massaged into damp skin.  It has clove and Sandalwood, so addresses any skin concern or if avoiding blemishes before they arise.  I use this a few days a month.  

5. Aurelia Cell Repair Night Oil - I use this almost always, no matter what else I wear.  Layering oils in thin layers is working out nicely.   I think it complements the UMA Clarifying oil well because it adds a bit more hydration.

6. UMA Anti-aging eye oil - I like this.  I am rotating between this and my staple DDG Ferulic +Retinol eye cream

Have you tried the most overlooked ingredient.. SULFUR? Sulfur is a natural Anti Bacterial and Anti Fungal property, making it Earth's oldest Acne cure! After trying every ingredient you can name my Dermatologist recommended Sulfur by Joesoef Skin Care to be the most effective and highest quality Sulfur based product line in the market. Sulfur really had a positive affect on my complexion, reducing the redness, acne and clogged pores in a matter of days. Try Joesoef Skin Care 4 Step Acne facial kit. You'll see the results! I hope this helps. <3

@dalidyli,

Do you sense that we have experienced a commercial message?

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

@tsavorite

 

Haha Just a bit.

@dalidyli,

This was cross-posted in 3 Threads on BT.  One post has a video about this product line. 

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

Oh geez I didn't see those. @tsavorite

A little bit of silliness: this is my five year old's "routine." I'm trying to get her in the habit of applying her own sunscreen each morning, then washing her face in the evening. The atomizer is for extra fanciness and holds rosewater. The dinosaur pump has DML lotion, which she uses wherever she gets a dry spot anywhere. 

 

Less silly: I wasn't encouraged to wear sunscreen until college, and even then not unless I was in the hot sun. So many regrets!

Today has been a doozy.  My routine tonight is just what I needed to make me go from "stabby" to just "pokey".  That will have to do for now.

 

04/13/17 - PM Skincare

Age - 42

Skin type/condition - Oily/good.

20170413_PM (Large).jpg

1. Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm

2. January Labs Exfoliating Peel - trying this out.  Feels fine - like a sticky gel.  Supposed to be potent, but I hardy felt anything.  But skin feels good.  Lets see if I wake up with my face still intact.

3. Caudalie Grape water

4. UMA Total Rejuvenating Night oil - I just got this.  This is the third Uma oil I own, and it is incredible.  A winner again.

5. UMA Anti Ageing Eye Oil -  Just got this too.  I haven't used an eye oil before.  Felt good.  Lets see tomorrow morning.

6. Aurelia Cell Repair Night oil - No matter what else I put on my face, I need this too.  I love this oil and just like to layer.

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

I am eagerly awaiting the delivery of my Uma oil trial face kit. I want to experience the same goodness @greenchilli!!

 

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?
