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 know this questions was not directed at me, but I've seen incredible results with Odacite a Summer in Hossegor, in terms of treating hyperpigmentation.  I have normal/combo skin as well.  

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

Thx for letting me know @MiaM7. I will look into it. Edit: I googled it. Look pretty good. Put it in my to try next list. Smiley Happy

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

@blackkitty2014 Im on my third bottle of summer in hossegor and I can definitely vouch that I see a difference in my hyperpigmentation between when I use it and when I don't (I took a few months break to use up other stuff before repurchasing my last bottle and I could tell)

 

anyway, I've written a lot about odacite on BT over the years but I always hesitate to recommend their private blends because they are pricy and it's not always possible to sample beforehand since they're not widely carried.

 

SIH is one of the few products I consistently repurchase in my skincare routine, though. If you decide to take the plunge, you may want to grab it from odacite direct; they run 15% off sales pretty regularly. 

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

Thx so much @Mochapj. I'll keep an eye out for the next sale.  I definitely intrigue with the ingredients.  

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

How are you liking the Brightening Oil? I don't know if I love, love the Night Oil from Uma. I do like the day Oil though. The smell is awesome. How is the eye oil? Do you see a difference since using it? 

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

Hi guys! So I need some recommendations if anyone has them.

 

i have some stubborn acne scars/hyperpigmentation that  don't seem to fade with my current routine.

Right now I'm using good genes during the day and DE framboos night serum/SR Luna oil at night.  Does any  have any experiments with spot treatment for stubborn dark marks? I'm thinking I need something just for them to spot treat.

 

many thanks!

Hey! Vitamin C would be a great addition to your routine to target hyperpigmentation. I use retinols at night and my vitamin c in the morning. There are so many other benefits to it as well. The best I've found is Timeless Vitamin C + E + Ferulic Acid which has been duped for Skin Ceuticals. A bottle usually lasts me around 3 mths before it goes bad.

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

@dalidyli hi! thanks so much for the recommendation!

 

i've been looking for a good vitamin c serum! i've tried a few but so far no luck. i will check out the timeless! Smiley Happy

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

Rosehip oil is supposed to be very effective!

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

thanks @Gwenhwyfar! i've heard that actually, so will have to do some more investigating Smiley Happy

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

I have a wildcard for you - I have been loving Eleven Huesday De-Spot Luminosity. I have one recent/stubborn PIH spot that is fading nicely with daily AM treatments. 

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

thanks @fairlywell! that looks awesome!

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

@unfungirl

 

Vit C, Retinol, exfoliation, and most importantly Time.

 

I wish I could tell you that this will fix it quickly, but I can at least say it will speed it up.  Pigmentation can be a bit stubborn in some folks, take me for instance.  But this helps.

 

I do have a couple of things to suggest though.   I am not a fan of Good Genes daily usage, or daytime usage.    I suggest switching up your acid exfoliants.  During the day, try FAB Radiance pads or Pixi Glow tonic.  They are gentle, and you can rotate them.  At night you can switch up between DE and GG.

 

Odacite Pa+G, Summer in Hossegor, DE Vit C serum, Hylamide Vit C....they are all well liked products that can speed up the process of fading spots.

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

@greenchilli  thanks so much for the advice! i am trying to be patient, which is not my best quality haha.

 

i am using the glow tonic now, i just got  it and love it! i've used the FAB pads and like those too.

 

DE c-firma broke me out terribly, but i think i'm going to buy the odacite p+g! 

 

many thanks for the great advice (again) Smiley Happy

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

Double masking tonight

 

1/28 p.m

- Micellar Water to remove makeup

- Tatcha Oil Cleanser

- REN Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask

- Erborian Bamboo Waterlock Mask

- Maycoop Raw Sauce

- OH Truth Serum

- Shiseido Power Infusing Concentrate

- Marcelle Hydra C moisturizing gel

- Glossier Rosewater spray

- Some nice rose lip balm

- Used Clarins Baume Corps Super Hydrant on my dry hand and feet. It seems nice. I'm glad it came in Nordie gwp.

 

Comments: I've been using the Shiseido stuff for a while now (morning and night) and I don't feel any more powerful NOR are my fine lines/dark circles/any eye problems reducing. 

 

Shameless old-lady turban selfie. Skin is doing pretty well overall, I think. Room for improvement.

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

definitely use that shiseido product before the OH truth serum. i'd even use it before the raw sauce. it's essentially formulated to help aid whatever serums and treatments go on after it Smiley Happy

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

Aahhhh I thought it was the same as an eye cream, just lighter. Thank you for telling me!

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

How do you look so good without any makeup on! Unfair!! Stop being so cute, agh!

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

I love you. Look at this actual photo someone took of us.

 

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

Looking good ladies! Smiley Wink

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

Omg I love this Heart

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

What a perfect pic. You two are no doubt BEAUTIES in your own ways 👌

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

Who else looked at this drawing and began listing off the names of the products in this photo! LOL! I know I did!

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

MA ! Aren't you the prettiest one ❤️

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

I got home last night to fairly pleasant North Texas weather (70F). 

 

02/18/16 - PM skincare

1. Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing balm - I like this, but this is not an everyday staple.

2.  DDG Medi Peel - This is their stronger peel, but it is the most soothing.  I can't quite explain it. 

3. Zelens Youth Serum - just a good, reliable serum.

4. Sunday Riley Juno - this is a big deal for me.  It has taken me months to retry Sunday Riley after Luna was a no-go.  I am very cautious with oils anyway.  It felt great last night, but a few more trys will tell.

5. DDG Retinol+Ferulic Eye Cream - reliable. 

6. Sjal Kuri Intuitif Intense Hydrating cream - I love this.  It is good for "extra needy" skin days.  So I doubt I will use it much longer as it is warming up here. 

 

All very soothing, plumpy, glowy things.
