What is your night/day time skincare routine?

I would just like to know what everyone does and maybe adapt some of those ideas into my routine as well!


Im really simple and at night

- I exfoliate face with Korress Wild Rose

- Exfoliate lips with LUSH lip scrub

- put the Korress wild rose sleeping facial

- and some EOS lipbalm


And for the day i just wear

- Korress wild rose 24 hr moisturuzer


However, I feel like I'm missing some things to do! what do you do?

Re: What is your night/day time skincare routine?

I love simple routines!  When I frequented another skin care forum, I ended up with a routine miles long (we are talking 10 to 12 products in the morning and another dozen at night...way too much). 



-No cleansing with a cleanser (I just washed my face the night before, I don't feel the need, but I will use my Clarisonic in the shower sans cleanser in the morning...I never use a cleanser with my Clarisonic)

-Argan oil over entire face

-Devita sunscreen (fantastic for oily skin like mine)

-TheSimpleSiren vanilla chai lip balm scrub (100% natural, real sugar scrub in a lip balm tube...I LOVE these balms!)

-TheSimpleSiren lip balm (I go between Rosemary Lemonade and Green Tea Matcha balms right now, but have a few new ones on the way!)



-REN No. 1 Purity Cleansing balm, remove with warm wash cloth

-Argan oil in dry areas and around eyes

-Chardonnay grape seed oil (helps with excess oil, believe it or not)



I have finally balanced my oil factory of a face with this, it took me years to figure out a routine that resulted in not having to use acne products (I break out at the drop of a hat, at least I used to when I was stripping my face).  I use a basic spot treatment if I have to, but I haven't had to because my face is happy, happy, happy with this...for now!


I found that if my routine is too complicated, like I was trying to make it because I thought I needed a serum for this, a toner for that, a cream for these, etc., I wouldn't follow through.  I don't think you need a ton of products.  I think the most important is sunscreen!!!

Re: What is your night/day time skincare routine?

Combo skin--


Day: Renee Rouleau's Luxe Mint Cleansing Gel, RR's Elderberry Toner, RR's Daily Protection SPF, Korres Quercetin & Oak Eye Cream, Burt's Bees Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm


Night: RR's Aloe Cleansing Milk, Elderberry Toner, and Sheer Moisture followed by Korres Eye Cream, Burt's Bees Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm.


On Wednesday and Sunday nights, I use Murad's Pomegranate Mask after cleansing, skip the toner, and then continue on with moisturizer.


Note: I'm running low on a lot of my Renee Rouleau products (best ever!), so I'll be phasing in Clinique's Dramatically Different Gel for daytime moisture and Philosophy's Hope in a Jar Night.  I'll also go over to Clinique's #3 Toner as I run out of the Elderberry.  (sigh)

Re: What is your night/day time skincare routine?

Last week I posted my post-winter routine.
I'm trying to ween myself off of retinol for Summer, but my skin is not happy about it Smiley Sad

Are you using SPF during the day? 

Re: What is your night/day time skincare routine?


Wash with Vanicream Bar Soap

Apply moisturizer (this always depends on how I feel my face is doing.  Sometimes I apply Cetaphils' Dermacontrol Oil Control, but recently I have been applying Aveeno's Ezcema Therapy.  My skin just loves it!  Vanicream Lite Lotion is also a great one!)

Apply Makeup



Remove makeup with fragrance free baby wipes or wet paper towel (if it's a wash out of the shower, I use Olive Oil)

Wash with Head & Shoulders Shampoo (heard about this on The Doctors!) It helps get rid up hair bumps and helps with cystic acne

Sometimes I rub Oilve Oil on my face to help with dryness after use of H&S

Apply Aveeno's Ezcema Therapy


I exfoliate my skin once to twice a week with sugar or sea salt as my scrub


Re: What is your night/day time skincare routine?

In the morning I wash my face with a bar of Cetaphil and put on some Aveeno SPF 50, at night I was my face with the same soap and use Neutrogena naturals night cream Smiley Indifferent

Re: What is your night/day time skincare routine?

Right now it's Caudalie's Gentle Cleanser, Toner, and Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet and I'm testing samples of their perfecting day fluid with spf 15 in it.


Then at night I use all the same things minus the perfecting day fluid and I add in Caudalie's Cleansing Water to take off my makeup and Dermadoctor's ain't misbehavin for my cystic acne. then twice a week caudalie's purifying mask.


Before this Routine I was using the Murad Range of products but I didn't love it so I started this one.

Re: What is your night/day time skincare routine?

I forgot to mention I have normal skin with hormonal cystic acne

Re: What is your night/day time skincare routine?

How do you like the Dermadoctor's Ain't Misbehaving? I have hormonal cystic ance on my chin too.

Re: What is your night/day time skincare routine?



Philosophy's Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash

Clarins Vital Light serum

Eye cream (usually Clinique's All About Eyes)
Philosophy's Hope in a Jar and/or Dr Jart Premium BB cream (This depends on how my skin is looking any given day and how dry it feels.  It really varies with the weather and too much moisturizing makes it feel sticky every day but someday I go without anything other than moisturizer)

I need to be better about adding sun screen on days I don't have the BB cream on, even if I'm not outside



Remove eye makeup (if I was wearing any) with makeup remover -- right now Sephora's waterproof, but I'm thinking I'll use Clinique's or Lancome's next, and I have decent trial sizes of both

Philosophy's Purity Made Simple.  2-3 days a week I've started using Ulta's cleansing brush with this

Eye Cream -- Clinique's All About Eye's Rich or Origin's Plantscription (the VIB sample, which I like a lot)

Philosophy's When Hope is Not Enough (I got it as part of a set; it's too sticky to use in the morning but okay at night)

Philosophy's Hope in a Jar Night  (When it gets more humid I may have to go with something not so heavy; we'll see)


Sometimes I switch to the Body Shop's vitamin E collection, and then I use the toner after the cleanser.  Should I be using a toner all the time?


I have to wash in the morning. Some of the night things can feel sticky and I don't like applying moisturizer without washing first.  And unfortunately I'm at that night sweats time of life where I just want to scrub everything when I get up.
