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).

⭐ Challenge yourself: post your skincare routine everyday for a week. It is a nice visual check-in on your routine.

Oooh haha thanks! 😊 @lmaster 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

😍😍😍😍 Gah, this is my dream thread!!! Thank you so much for starting it @l8totheparty!!


My morning routine:

It doesn't really change until I run through a product and then onto the next, because my goal is to work through all of my stash. I have fairly normal skin (minus some overexfoliation a few weeks ago). Its winter, and I just moved to a humid-ish climate.

Cleasner: I didn't make a picture of my cleanser, but I'm using ORIGINS - Checks and Balances™ Frothy Face Wash. It's good? Cleans, mostly gentle. Foams. It's a good standard, not my favorite, but trying to finish my stash before buying more.

Micelle water: SEPHORA COLLECTION - Triple Action Cleansing Water. Again, not my favorite, but was looking for a cheaper dupe of my fav. Its supposed to be non rinse, but is a little tacky.

Toner: INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner. I haven't used enough to have a full review, but no negative reactions so far.

Essence: SK-II - Facial Treatment Essence (Pitera Essence). I don't think this does much for me? It's the first essence I've tried, so going to see if another does anything beyond helping following products absorb. It doesn't have any negative reactions but is a little tacky. Absorbs fairly quickly.

Firming serum: THE ORDINARY - Argireline Solution 10%. I really like this. I think it's actually doing things for my eye lines! It absorbs quickly, thin texture, not tacky.

Vitamin C serum/hydrating: OLEHENRIKSEN - Truth Serum® Mini. I like this. I think it's a good serum, definitely helps my skin be more luminous, but it doesn't spread the best, so I have to use a fair bit. Am going to try to find another serum that works similarly, but will go back to this maybe.

Brightening/hydrating serum: CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Anti Dark Spot Serum. I know this is supposed to be a brightening serum, which I think it does to a bit, I find it hydrating as well, which is mostly what I've been using it for.

Spot treatment: ORIGINS - Super Spot Remover™ Acne Treatment Gel. I think this works, albeit slowly. It's obviously drying but not the most drying if that makes sense. I'm definitely on the lookout for a better one.

Moisturizer: CLINIQUE - Pep-Start HydroBlur Moisturizer. Oooof this is not my favorite. I don't love the texture, and it doesn't even blur very well. It's not the most hydrating, which for my new climate is okay, but in Calgary was not. I'm so close to being done with it though!

Oil (not pictured): WANDER BEAUTY - Glow Ahead Illuminating Face Oil. I got this in a boxycharm box, I think. Its definitely not my favorite, but again, we working through those stashes. It's pretty, got some pink and sparkles, but oh gosh this does nothing. It doesn't even really add luminosity and underneath other things gets fairly lost. Its fairly tacky though, so it can kinda work as a primer.

Sunscreen (not pictured): SHISEIDO - Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector Broad Spectrum Face Sunscreen SPF 42. Great absorption, works well, good protection, but is runny (I use my beauty blender) and definitely leaves a white cast. I'm fairly white and pale, so this isn't as much of an issue for me, but isn't great for deeper skin tones, and means it's not a good product for everyone and that's unfair.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Curious about the Indie Lee @haleyvvvv @after you’ve been using it longer ☺️ Is it scented?

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@eshoe ish? More like an chemical or astringent scent? I'm usually sensitive to scents, and it doesn't bother me, but YMMV. I'm not sure I'm seeing any benefits, but I'm not sure how much I need to layer a micelle water and toner and essence. Like a cleansing hydrating toner would be enough...

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I quite enjoy that THE ORDINARY - Argireline Solution 10% for my lines and wrinkles- it helps them to seem less prominent. I also need to use it consistently when I get it again. I ran out and have been missing it!  I need to order another one.

I have the SK-II waiting for me. I think I noticed a difference when I used a sample-size before, so I ordered one.


I also quite enjoy the OLEHENRIKSEN - The Clean Truth™ Foaming Cleanseron my workday mornings!

Thanks for sharing your morning's skincare!  😊

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Thank you for the cleanser recommendation, @l8totheparty! I hope you enjoy the SK-II!!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

How are you liking the Ordinary and Juice beauty products, @l8totheparty?

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I love the THE ORDINARY - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

And the THE ORDINARY - buffet. They help keep my skin brighter, clearer, and more even. 

The Juice beauty eye treatment is wonderful as well. I also have one waiting in the background. I feel like it helps the lines and keeps my skin hydrated. I do have a couple more eye creams to go through. As well, having started my skincare journey this year, I have few other eye creams to compare it with.



Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I'll definitely be checking out those Ordinary products soon! They're on my to try list! Thanks @l8totheparty!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@l8totheparty this is a great idea!! 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Thanks, @lmaster !  I'm always curious to see people's skincare routines. 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I'll get mine posted soon 😊 @l8totheparty

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Ooooh thank you for also posting weather and skin conditions @l8totheparty. Humidity makes such a difference in how well certain products work so it really helps give context.
