Skincare Routine of the Day

This is a place to share your skincare routine of the day!  Whether it be daytime routine or nighttime routine, I know you have one.  From simple to complex, expensive to inexpensive products: show and tell! If you are anything like me, your skincare routine changes daily. Skincare isn't as showy as makeup, but it is the quiet work horse of our daily lives. 20200118_005115.jpg


You might want to include with your post: your skin type, skin concerns (& the weather where you are).

Sometimes if all you can do is your skincare, that is enough.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I am going to start with my morning routine.  Starting by washing with TULA Skincare The Cult Classic Purifying Face Cleanser 6.7 oz/ 200 mL . Then I apply #Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Toner.  Right now I’m using The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 Hydrating Serum .  For my eyes right now I’m using Hide Power Nap Eye  Roller.  It’s cooling with the metal roller ball to dispense the eye serum. I have been using Glow Recipe Avocado Ceramide Redness Relief Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL and Glow Recipe Guava Vitamin C Dark Spot Treatment Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL  daily for almost a year.  My am daily moisturizer is Honest Beauty Hydrogel Cream.  But while there is nothing wrong with it, it’s also not showing me anything great.  I have a small jar of Glow Recipe Mini Plum Plump Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer .68 oz / 20 mL to try in follow up .


My evening routine starts with a balm to double cleanse.  Farmacy Clearly Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm 3.4 oz/ 100 mL is what I am using now and I love how it melts makeup off.  Then I will wash with the Tula cleanser, follow with The Ordinary hyaluronic acid and eye roller.  My serum changes to either Sunday Riley Good Genes All-In-One AHA Lactic Acid Treatment 3.4 oz / 100 mL or Sunday Riley A+ High-Dose Retinol Serum or #Sunday Riley C.E.O.Vitamin C serum, or Estée Lauder Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex Serum 1.7 oz/ 50... .  I alternate these serums.  They last a long time.  My evening moisturizer is Tatcha Indigo Overnight Repair Serum in Cream Treatment 1.7 oz/ 50 mL .  This is new to me and my skin is really appreciating it. 



Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

It's been a while since I've posted my routine. I'm still trying to chip away at my samples I have. My HG toners are no longer made, but I'm really loving this Huxley.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@Samtian  I have heard of several of your products.  I’m glad you know that they are effective for your skin.   

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@Cissy63 Some of them I am undecided on or don't notice any difference. 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

 This was from my recent evening travel skincare routine which is all about nourishing and repairing skin in the evenings

11.17.2022 PM (trip).jpg



My nighttime skincare routine falls into one of two categories when I’m at home - either (1) quick, easy, to the point & gets the job done so I can get my other work done 😉, or (2) a more detailed approach to treating my skin while giving me some “me” time, where my skin care is my self-care. 


This was a PM routine I’ve was using while away for work that is a hybrid of both approaches to my nighttime skincare routine. It's a two-part routine - the first part is done immediately after I get back to my room at the end of the day and the latter part starts about 30-45 minutes before I call it a night. 


  • Double cleanse: first with DHC Cleansing Oil, an oil based cleanser that removes sunscreen, makeup, dirt, debris and anything else that my skin picks up throughout the day. This one is olive-oil based and thoroughly cleanses my skin without stripping it or making it feel tight or dry. I follow that up with Biossance Squalane + Amino Aloe Gentle Pore-Minimizing Cleanser 6.76 oz/ 200 mL - a soothing, hydrating and comforting gel cleanser. 
  • Lip scrub - Sara Happ The Lip Scrub Pumpkin Spice - her lip scrubs were my introduction to lip scrubs and I love how the granules provide a good exfoliation without being too rough on the skin. She's since repackaged some of her products and while I like the portability of the scrubs in the tube, it's the ones in the jar that I find to be more effective. This pumpkin spice flavor / scent is limited edition and perfect for the cooler weather.
  • L'Occitane Immortelle Reset Overnight Reset Oil-In Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL is a must-have for my skin in the cooler seasons. It packs a punch in terms of hydrating and moisturizing my skin but is light enough that it is not too heavy or overwhelming when incorporating other products.
  • Dr Jart Water Drop Hydrating Moisturizer - depending on how dry my skin is from the weather, travel or new environs, I might apply a couple of layers of this hydrating moisturizer. The beauty of this moisturizer is in its texture and formula - it comes out of the tube as a gel-creme formula but as it makes contact with the warmth of the skin, it transforms into a liquid-y, almost water-like essence/serum that is quickly and almost effortlessly absorbed by the skin. Sadly, this product has been discontinued and this is the last of my backups. Really wish they would bring this back. 
  • Lip balm - I forgot to pack my Laneige lip sleeping mask so I pulled out the HAUS LABS BY LADY GAGA PhD Hybrid Lip Oil Hue  for some nighttime lip care.
The latter half of my evening routine is about keeping my skin moisturized throughout the night and involves a mask or face oil, or on some occasions, both. When I'm away from home, it usually involves both. This was my recent pairing. 


Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@itsfi  These are great choices.  I love L’Occitane hand creams.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Oooh, that’s so nice! I love the double approach! @itsfi 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@itsfi I've had a few of the Biossance Mini Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Firming Oil minis and I like them for travel, too. Particularly if the hotel air system dries out my skin overnight.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Mini's are great for travel @curlychiquita💖 I just refill them from my full size when I start running low. Fortunately, I have a full size and various sample / mini sizes from last year's BF deals so I'm set. The Biossance rose oil is fantastic - my skin really likes it - absorbs smoothly and quickly. I had two people comment to me the morning after I used it that my skin looked soft and moisturized and bright. I honestly didn't think they were talking to me because with work travel, the best I can hope for is that my skin just stays the status quo - hotel HVAC is a mystery to me curlychiquita; the only thing consistent about it is that it'll somehow send my skin into some sort of frenzy after I get back home. Ha!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@sister13  How are you liking the Grande brow and lash products??  

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I have been using them for a long time and so now i think it’s just for maintenance. I saw a huge difference with the GrandeLash when I first used it, and a small but noticeable difference in brows. Now, they are staples! Though, I definitely try to

fund them on sales, because it’s pricey. @Cissy63 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Lovely routine @sister13! The Korres black pine line is really great; my favorite range from that brand. Hard to go wrong with the MIssha essence - it's a classic! 💖

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Thanks @itsfi  Agreed on the Korres! The scent is what gets me! I finally found the Missha essence at TJ Maxx, I’m too lazy to purchase from other retailers online, lol. 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Lol @sister13. I miss the days when Target carried a few Missha products. For a while, TJ Maxx / Marshall’s was my source for the Korres Black Pine beauties! 😊 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

How do you like the Vegamour serum @sister13

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I have not noticed any major differences after recently finishing my Kerastase serum and starting this one, but I do like the consistency and it doesn’t make my hair greasy at all, and seems to soothe my scalp! @faeriegirl 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I went with a simple, effective, minimalist, morning skincare routine (and makeup too) during a recent work trip. 

SROTD - 11.7.2022 AM (trip).jpg


Skin Type:  Combination leaning dry 

Skin Concern(s):  Skin is very dehydrated, some dry patches, some dark spots and redness.

Weather / Setting:  Cold, brisk mornings and evenings. Inside heated room for most of the day.


1. Gently cleanse with Biossance Squalane + Amino Aloe Gentle Pore-Minimizing Cleanser 6.76 oz/ 200 mL 


2. I like to apply a vitamin C product right after cleansing in the mornings; my skin seems to respond well to this approach.  Biossance Mini Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Firming Oil. Let that absorb into the skin. 


3. Put some pep into those peepers and under eye area with SEPHORA COLLECTION Clean Eye Mask Caffeine - makes for a quick, lovely. little pamper sesh in the mornings. 


4. A  serum like fresh Rose Deep Hydration Face Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL helps to add some extra hydration to the skin and works well as a primer before moisturizer. 


5. Moisturize skin by applying two thin, light  layers of Dr. Jart+ Water Drops Hydrating Moisturizer (discontinued), the first on its own, the second, mixed with another drop of the Biossance Squalane + Vitamim C Rose Firming Oil.


6. Apply two (2) layers of Saie Sunvisor Radiant Moisturizing Face Sunscreen SPF 35 for sun protection and a lovely glow.. 


7. HAUS LABS BY LADY GAGA PhD Hybrid Lip Oil Hue for a lovely color, shine, and moisture to the lips. 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@itsfi  Oh this sounds soothing 🥰

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Nice routine @itsfi! I need to try the Saie sunvisor.
