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.

any suggestions? my oil is still pretty bad

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?



What do you mean by your oils being bad?  Also, what don't you like about being oily?  


Describe how your oil manifests itself.  Does makeup melt off?  Are you completely oily in 2-3 hours?  


Do you also have acne or blemishes?  Is aczone for treating current acne or to prevent?


Oiliness is exacerbated by dehydration.  


Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

How do you like the midnight recovery eye cream? 

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

I use all the products that are beneficial to my skin.

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

wow you're so helpful!

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

Skin type: Combo. Normal with some oily areas.

Age: Late 20s 😭


Current AM routine:

-Tatcha Camellia Cleansin Oil

-Neogen Green Tea foaming wash

-Neogen Lemon Peel Pads (occasional)

-Son & Park Beauty Water

I like to keep my skin hydrated enough to keep excess oil production to a minimum. Now that it's starting to get warmer, I may use less rosehip oil, or combine it with a lighter moisturizer instead.

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

I am trying to revamp my skincare routine so I dropped it down to very basic around a week ago. With a goal to introduce a new product very 7-10 days given that nothing bothers my skin and things keep going smoothly.

Here is what I a, typically using for around a week now (Other than masks and weekly peel/PMD)



I changed my technique of using Odacite serums as well. Previously I was mixing 1-2 drops of each in my palm and massaging into the damp skin.

Now I am using them on targeted areas. Again on damp skin I drip 1 drop of Jo+L serum on my nose and spread it towards my cheeks as nose and apples of cheek are the only areas which have visible pores. 

Then I take 2 drops of Pa+G and massage it onto the areas of hyperpigmentation first and then spread it towards rest of the face.

Lastly I add 2 drops of CaR in my moisturizer and apply it all over my face and Mack.

I am very happy how it is working. My skin is completely clear of all red & dry patches I developed lately. It feels Radiant and soft.


Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

I like your explanation of how you use the Odacite, I've been interested in some of those but not sure where to fit in my routines. The targeted approach is a good idea!

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

Sunday AM skincare:


Age - 42

Skin type/condition - oily, sometimes dehydrated, in good shape.

20170528_AM (Large).jpg

1. Tata Harper Purifying cleanser - I have and use all TH cleansers.  This one took a while to love because it stings if I get some in the eyes.  But the cleanser is top notch.  So I'm just careful now.

2. Biologique Recherche P50 PIGM 400

3. Josh Rosebrook Hydrating Accelerator - I just started using this mist.  It is very nice.  The scent reminds me of Pepto.  Yup.

4. Vintners Daughter Botanical serum

5. Farmacy Eye Dew

6. Tata Harper Rebuilding moisturiser - I love this


I certainly don't look 25, nor do I have any desire to.  But I am quite happy with what my skin looks like in my 40s.  I want my face to show health and radiate some level of warmth/glow.  I feel it does more often than not.  That is a good skin place for me.



Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

Non senses.  You can easily pass for 20 something.  You do have radiant skin.  Good job @greenchilli!

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?



Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

Just a little heads up, in TophCam latest videos titled "What to Do When You Over-Do It" he tested the Oille cleanser and found that the PH level is around 9, which is very damaging.  I'd recommend checking it out.

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

Does anyone use the Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner and can you review compare/contrast with Mario Badescu Rosewater?

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

@mspera80 neither! But I hate a question hanging for three days. Have you made a decision yet?
