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.

Thanks @SAlyFitz ! Smiley Happy

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

How organized are you?? This is great @WinglessOne 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Thanks @lmaster ! Heh, if only I was this organized about everything else... Smiley Very Happy 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@WinglessOne how does the Paula's Choice anti-redness exfoliant compare to the gel? I use the former but I use it on cotton pads and I feel like I'm wasting a bit of product.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@sprocketta  I just use my hands to apply the Clear Anti-Redness exfoliant. I can better control how much I apply that way. The gel exfoliant has the same consistency as the AHA gel, so it’s easier to use as a spot treatment. I think the gel BHA would work just as well as the Clear liquid BHA, since they both contain some skin soothing ingredients. I just prefer the liquid for my whole face; I don’t like having the gel texture all over my face. 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@WinglessOne, I always love seeing your skincare spreadsheet. 💗 Was wondering about the Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Gel - is that the same formulation as her 2% BHA Gel Exfoliant? 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Thanks @itsfi !  Do you mean the Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant vs. the gel version? They share lots of ingredients, but the gel contains a couple more extracts: grape seed, willow herb, and bisabolol. 

 

Both the 2% BHA gel and the Clear Anti-Redness 2% BHA contain more skin soothing ingredients than the Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid, which is why I don’t use the liquid—though it’s probably the most popular of Paula’s BHA exfoliants. Smiley Happy

Thank you @WinglessOne

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Typical morning routine.  Glycolic acid toner, Vitamin C serum, usually another serum, eye cream, moisturizer, sunscreen. 8B11EB90-9CFE-488F-9DB1-EB82F34BEA84.jpg

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Nice line up, @averylayne!!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

thanks @haleyvvvv !

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Very nice @averylayne 🥰 I’ve tried the Tatcha cream but run of that too 😫

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@2manyperfumes can't really go wrong with tatcha products! great quality, effective, and such pretty packaging haha

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

How long have you been using the Tatcha, @averylayne? It’s a beautiful serum, but I’ve only sampled it. Curious how you like it over time.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I used it for half a year @eshoe ❤️ But although I love Tatcha it’s $$$.  It was good but not holy grail good.  I was getting similar results with just vitamin c serums.  I didn’t have break outs from it.  My daughter does though.  She didn’t like it but likes the water cream (green bottle).  The rice polish is my favourite because at least one regular size bottle lasts months.  Still it’s a hefty initial expense in the beginning.  Same with the Essence water lasts long ($80?) but you can find plumping serums with lactic acid that get similar results.  The smell is kind of weird lol.  Fermented - acidic.  

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

‘Fermented-acidic’ I wouldn’t have considered that @2manyperfumes, but I know exactly what you are talking about. its not a pleasant scent.

 

The rice powder is very, very nice, and gentle. When I use mine I mix it with a couple scoops of the Neogen Real Vita C Powder. Your daughter must love trying such beautiful products🤩 it’s kind of a relief when the $$$ ones don’t work out though, ha!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Lol it’s like stale beer @eshoe  😂 my daughter and I try to pick up samples or minis before we spend too much but I did buy the full sizes and was kind of relieved to find something less $.  She lives very clean products and my hourglass translucent veil powder.  I gave up and found something affordable she doesn’t take.  😂 I magically went through 3 hourglass powders and that was that.  

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

3 hourglass powders, yikes @2manyperfumes 😳 yeah I am due for a restock and I have so many others that need to be used, but none are quite the perfect Cinderella-fit, like Veil. I ended up blending a setting powder with some shaded loose powder and voila! I will reward myself once I finish, and take a cue from you and hide it when I do repurchase.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@eshoe I've been using the TATCHA - Violet-C Brightening Serum 20% Vitamin C + 10% AHAfor a couple months.  I really liked the results! My skin did appear brighter and clearer. And I liked that it contains AHA for exfoliation too.  The only issue I have with it is the consistency; it's a little too watery.  I felt like I lost a lot of product between my fingers, so I'm going through it a lot quicker than I expected.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Hmmmm that is slightly frustrating @averylayne - especially with such a pricey product! Sounds like it might be a great once/twice a week treatment due to the AHA’s, though. Thanks for your thoughts!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@eshoe no problem!
