Daily Skincare - what are you using?

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?



I am more impressed with FAB than Origins.  Try out some samples and see how you like it.

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

I agree with this, but would add that their cleanser is (for me) only good as a second following a really solid first cleanse. On its own it doesn't do anything to remove makeup.

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

Just wanted to share my experience battling severely dry skin.


Double Cleanse does not work for me, I've been using clinique balm and then as a second cleanse REN calming cleanser this combination stripped my face too much, same thing with the clinique balm followed by Nude jelly. Since I stopped double cleansing my skin is much happier. I just use the clinique balm and remove it very well with warm water and a cotton pad.


Misha Organic flower toners (that I found in Costco) has become my HG what a difference it has made in my skin!!! It makes my skin plump, glowy and it is so hydrating >LOVE IT< I even ordered a backup today from Costco LOL


I feel like I'm finally on the right track with my skin I haven't seen a flake in very long time even though I keep using 3 times a week the DE framboos glycolic (it does wonders for my forehead fine lines).

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

I find a double cleanse is too stripping for my skin also. I only do it on occasion when I feel I wore more makeup than usual. The misha toner sounds interesting.  That brand is on my list to hopefully check out soon. 

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

At first I thought I was breaking some kind of law from how mainstream the recommendation to double cleanse is. But as with everything is not for everybody.... I kept switching back and forth with products drinking liters of water and honestly I think the dryness only resolved when I got rid of the double cleanse (and added the wonderful flower toner).


Definitely give it a try. It has a natural flowery smell that goes away very fast, just a heads up as I know some people are very sensitive to smells on their skincare.


Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?



I completely understand where you are coming from.  I am not married to a "number of cleanses".  A thorough cleanse is the result of using appropriate products and processes that will address the needs of the cleanse, suit the skin, and get the job done.  If that requires a 2 (or more) step process, so be it.  But if it doesn't, then just as well.


I think double cleansing has been encouraged for all the right intentions.  And it has done a lot of good to counter the marketing of nonsense products sold as "cleansers that do the job".  Every product on the shelves will say "will remove makeup, iron your clothes, and feed your pups".  They don't.


Also, makeup has take on a life of its own.  Multiple primers, heavy foundations, and long wear makeup is common today.  Especially amongst young women whose skin may also be the most susceptible to breakouts and acne.  And these makeup products hang on to the skin!  Not to mention heavy SPF.


The popularity of makeup wipes, miscellar waters, and rubbish foams and scrubs have contributed to many a pimple as well.  Most are harsh on the skin, and may only make a superficial impact.  But they are often the only "cleansing" product  someone might use because the advert says so.


I see the idea of double cleansing as a way to counteract this.  It encourages people not to go to bed after wiping their face with some makeup remover, water, or a wipe.  Especially if they have worn heavy makeup.



I don't cleanse my face more than once - my skincare routines in this thread will attest to it.  But I am careful about my choice of cleanser, my cleansing process, and my routine post cleansing to make sure I am treating my skin appropriately.  


Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

@greenchilli 100% agree with you. I remember my mom removed her makeup with a creamy balm, then we were told a wipe is enough, and now we are back to a more deep cleanse.


I definitely need the cleaning balm as I wear SPF everyday. Maybe in the summer I will be able to do a double cleanse but definitely not in the winter.

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

I'm really enjoying the Purifying Mask layered on top of the Resurfacing mask. I don't do it "all over", but the Tzone for sure and any problem areas. I like the tingle and my skin looks amazing afterward. 


Does the Purifying mask have exfoliating granules in it? 

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

@mrsbaine no, the Purifying Mask doesn't contain any exfoliating granules.  

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

How are you liking YTTP super long name serum? @Mochapj

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

@dalidyli I've been using it daily AM since January.


It's been a nice (non-reactive) serum for me, but I struggle to tell when 'anti-aging' or wrinkle prevention products are working, TBH.


As @greenchilli has said to me in the past, if it's keeping up the status quo, it's not doing anything wrong Smiley Very Happy

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

i swear this was not intentional. i noticed it when doing the oil and then gathered all the things.


the pink routine, 5/16/17:

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

@Gwenhwyfar IT IS !! i can't wait until this month's favorites thread so i can talk about just how much i'm loving this PTR cream.

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

@jemly How is the Clinique serum? Is it really hydrating? Does it do anything for you?

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

@jemly I picked up a sample of that PTR Rose mask today, and I used it after exfoliating tonight. My skin drank it right up! Thanks for the recommendation!

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

I decided I needed to try Vintner's Daughter, so I ordered last week from Aurora Beauty. I wanted to share, because it shipped right away (from MN) and the owner included a nice note.


She also has a 15% off promo code that was offered by one of the Instagrammers I follow - in the spoiler below.


If anyone is looking for the new Josh Rosebrook things, she had them in stock as of yesterday!



15% off code: PARITA15

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?



I love good service! VD is well

worth it to me. I hope you enjoy it 💚

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

That's really cool @fairlywell! I literally just bought some Josh Rosebrook products from Detox Market! Oh well! So many people talk about Vinter's Daughter; perhaps after I finish one of these oils I've bought lately, I'll try that one. Smiley Happy 

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?



You know I love Vintner's Daughter.  I use it almost daily in the AM.  I hope you love it too!
