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?

Awesome thread idea!

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

Age: early 20's

Skin Type: normal/dry & sensitive 

Current skin condition: normal but sensitive to chilly wind temperatures. 


AM ROUTINE: *in order of use*


I dont wear makeup every day and like to keep my morning routine quick and easy. I also don't have any skin concerns: discoloration/acne so I try to just keep things minimal. I am looking for a facial product that has SPF. I don't want to replace my Clinique gel so I am hoping to find something to use in addition to that. 



PM ROUTINE: *in order of use*


On days I wear makeup, I remove everything with Clinique's Take off the Day cleansing balm and then proceed with the above products. 


I mask ask every now and then. Typically using a Lush mask. I also use the Tony Moly black was pore gel. There's no real routine to this two products. I use then whenever I feel I need them.

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

I'm very much still figuring out what actually makes a difference for me, since I'm even newer to skincare beyond wash/moisturize than I am to makeup, but here's what I'm doing currently.


Age: 26

Skin type: Combination; mostly clear but very prone to redness



Not much since I don't usually wake up very oily. I'm starting to think I should move my exfoliating from evening to morning, though.

  • Rinse with cold water to de-puff
  • Origins Out of Trouble mask (only if I'm having breakouts, which fortunately is rare)
  • Origins GinZing eye cream
  • Clinique Moisture Surge or FAB Ultra Repair


  • Clinique Take the Day Off Balm
  • Cleanser -- working through various samples at the moment, but regular ol' Cetaphil is my go-to
  • Clarins toner
  • May Coop Raw Sauce
  • Brightening serum, if I have a sample on hand (I don't find they make enough of a difference for me to be worth buying)
  • Moisturizer -- working through samples from Boscia, Belif, Clinique and FAB
  • Night cream -- I don't always remember this, but if I do it's Origins Night-a-mins


These fall between cleanser and toner

  • Whatever peel sample I have on hand or Vasanti brightening scrub (2-3x)
  • Some kind of mask depending on what my skin is doing -- usually Origins rose clay or charcoal or Anthony pore-cleansing (3-4x)

Tatcha Camellia Cleansing Oil

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

Age - 34

Skin type - oily/combination

Current skin condition - pretty dehydrated (yesterday we had a cold weather warning, and I think today too, so between weather and indoor heating Smiley Sad )


01/18/16 - AM skincare

1. Rinse with water in the shower

2. Toner (varies between Clinique or NUDE, depending on skin conditions; today Clinique)

3. Farmacy Eye Dew eye cream

4. Farmacy Root Cell something serum

5. Laura Mercier Rose Infusion oil

6. Dotted some Eradikate on a spot that popped up on my forehead overnight* 

7. Clinique Moisture Surge Intense on dry neck area*


Steps with a * are things I don't usually do daily.  My neck is still recovering from an allergic reaction, so I'm really having to pile on the extra moisture for that.  


Throughout the day (especially during winter) I'll spritz my face with a hydrating spray.  Right now it's the Herbivore Coconut Hibiscus one.


Writing this out I realized I forgot my Raw Sauce today.  Oops!

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

Age:  45+

Skin:  Normal to Dry, more on the dry side recently

Current condition: skin is pretty good, seeing some hormonal changes with texture.


AM Routine:

  • Clarisonic with either GlamGlow Thirsty Cleanse or Shiseido Ibuki cleanser.
  • Trialing the Bobbi Brown Eye Cream, normally use the Shiseido Ibuki eye cream
  • Pure Romance Miracle Oil (I'm a consultant)
  • Origins Plantscription moisturizer

PM Routine:

  • Johnson Baby Shampoo to remove eye makeup
  • Trialing different face cleansers:  Boscia Makeup Breakup, PTR Gold Cleansing Butter
  • Caudalie cleansing water or Dr Jart + cleansing water
  • Pure Romance Miracle Oil
  • Trialing Bobbi Brown Night Cream & Eye cream, normally use Farmacy Sleep Tight

Once a week use a mask.


Generally I've been pretty happy with my skin since I've put more effort into a routine.  Using a cleansing water has helped get all the gunk off.  I have also started a much healthier lifestyle about 6 months ago so I eat a lot of vegetables, lean protein and drink plenty of water.  I exercise a minimum of 4 days a week.  It has made a positive difference in my skin.

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

It's more than I do! I say whatever works!! I have to keep things simple or else my skin freaks out =/

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

Age: 32

Skin type: combination

Current condition: dehydrated. A month ago I got PRK surgery on my eyes and it takes a while to heal up to 20/20, so I've been doing a lot of squinting (causing my angry 11's wrinkles to get worse). Also have a little bit of pitted acne scarring :-P


AM skincare:

ORG Mineral Peel (not every single day, but most)

Paula's Choice Resist Replenishing Toner

PC Resist Pure Radiance Treatment (vit C)

Makeup Artist's Choice Transforming Anti Aging Eye Repair

PC Moisture Boost Daily Restoring Complex (moisturizer/sunscreen)

Dr. Brandt Needles No More on forehead wrinkles


PM skincare: 

Wash with PC Moisture Boost cleanser & Clarisonic Mia FIT

Myotone microcurrent thingy (about 4-5 nights/week)

PC Resist toner

Generic tretinoin cream (.1%)

MUAC Transforming Anti Aging Eye Repair


Moisturizer - sort of switching around between PC Moisture Boost Hydrating Treatment Cream, Mizon Bee Venom cream and Farmacy Sleep Tight balm (I have too many moisturizers going right now)

Dr. Brandt Needles No More on forehead wrinkles


Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

Thirty something, oily, acne prone and sensitive skin. This is my fall/winter skincare regimen. I do use an eye cream, but there's no special one. Right now I cycle through samples. I'm pretty certain I'll never need to buy an eye cream again.


Acure Sensitive Facial Cleanser
Ole Henrikson Truth Serum Vitamin C Collagen Booster
Ole Henrikson Empower Featherweight Moisturizer
*Cover FX Custom Infusion Drops E & Chamomile - Optional, depends on how my skin feels.


Farmacy Clear Bloom Makeup Glideaway Cleansing Oil
Boots Botanics All Bright Cleansing Toner
Caudalie Beauty Elixir
Nude Progenius Omega Treatment
Caudalie Polyphenol C15 Eye & Lip Cream - I use this on my lips.
Nude Progenius Rescue Oil
*On days I don't wear makeup I usually start my PM regimen with the Nude Progenis Omega Treatment.


Weekly treatments - I either exfoliate with Lush Ocean Salt or use Real Chemistry Luminous 3 Minute Peel once a week and follow it with a moisturizing mask. Masking is one of my most favorite things and I typically do it 2-3 times a week. My most favorite mask is Lush Catastrophe Cosmetic Fresh Mask, but I rotate based on how my skin feels. Other favorites include, any Lush mask (except Cosmetic Warrior, the smell is too much and makes me sick ), First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Instant Oatmeal Mask and The Body Shop Aloe Protective Restoring Mask.

Age: 45

Skin: combo, occasional hormonal acne, not the least bit sensitive


AM PTR 24K gold cleansing balm 

Tone 'Acne stop' (lactic/salicylic acid)

Essence Raw Sauce or Roseberry essence by Original Raw (Essentielle Beauty)

Night cream Nars luminous moisture cream. Sometimes Dr. Sebagh Rose mask for sleeping.


Every 2 weeks or so I have been doing an at home peel series called Fade Peel by Makeup Artists Choice which is a mix of acids left on for 2-5 minutes as tolerated. Helps get rid of  acne, melasma and brightens

Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

01/18/16 - PM skincare


1. Nude Skincare Jelly Cleanser

2. Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask - I am using up my sample, but I have already ordered the full size.  I like.

3. Tata Harper Concentrated Brightening serum - my serums have had a theme in the past few days.  Winter and travel has left my skin a bit dull.  So I am trying to get some radiance back.  This TH serum is fairly new to me but I have used it for a few days and am quite pleased.  It has added a pep into my skin.

4. Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Cream

5. Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye cream


Some of my skincare restocking items are coming in tomorrow.  I am eager as I could use some deeper hydration by layering.



Re: Daily Skincare - what are you using?

1/18 PM

- nude purify cleanser

- pmd microderma treatment

- rinse w/water

- nude toner 

- nude omega milk on any areas of irritation

- farmacy eye dew

- Sunday Riley flora

- sample of may lindstrom blue cocoon balm

- Clinique moisture surge intense on my neck area

- whatever lip balm is on the night stand


Normally I double cleanse, but I didn't wear makeup today and I try not to double cleanse when I'm using the PMD.  Also on the nights I use it, I finish with a more nourishing oil like Flora, as well as the NUDE milk.  I usually use an exfoliating pad or other acid, but won't on nights I use PMD.


I'm pretty convinced blue cocoon does nothing for me, but I thought I'd finish my sample.
