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).

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

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 ๐Ÿฅฐ Iโ€™ve tried the Tatcha cream but run of that too ๐Ÿ˜ซ

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? Itโ€™s a beautiful serum, but Iโ€™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 โค๏ธ But although I love Tatcha itโ€™s $$$.  It was good but not holy grail good.  I was getting similar results with just vitamin c serums.  I didnโ€™t have break outs from it.  My daughter does though.  She didnโ€™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 itโ€™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

โ€˜Fermented-acidicโ€™ I wouldnโ€™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 products๐Ÿคฉ itโ€™s kind of a relief when the $$$ ones donโ€™t work out though, ha!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Lol itโ€™s like stale beer @eshoe  ๐Ÿ˜‚ 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 doesnโ€™t take.  ๐Ÿ˜‚ I magically went through 3 hourglass powders and that was that.  

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

3 hourglass powders, yikes @2manyperfumes ๐Ÿ˜ณ 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 AHAโ€™s, though. Thanks for your thoughts!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@eshoe no problem! 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Great photo @averylayne! ๐Ÿ˜ Iโ€™ve heard really good things about the Elta sunscreen.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

thank you @itsfi  ๐Ÿ˜Š I love the EltaMD sunscreen; that's one of my holy grails.  I started using it after my dermatologist recommended it (I had a horrible horrible postpartum breakout that took over 50% of my face).  I've been using it ever since.  It contains niacinamide, so I think it's pretty highly recommended for acne prone skin.  

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Do you use the glycolic acid toner everyday? @averylayne I've often wondered about using a glycolic toner everyday. 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@l8totheparty yup, every morning. I also use it at night sometimes (my PM routine changes nightly because I use peels/masks throughout the week).  I was using the Pixi Glow Tonic (5% glycolic acid) for a long time, but then I wanted to try out The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution.  Both are pretty good, although I think I get more of a glow with Pixi

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Thanks, @averylayne !

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I use one daily but always paired with hydrating essence, hydrating serum or mist and hydrating mask.  Iโ€™ve recently adapted this routine after a bad reaction to an unknown retinoid use and nursing my skin through it lol๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ’€ I guess I can tell what it needs better now and Iโ€™m paying way more attention for maintenance of my skin and prevention from that awful reaction and recovery...

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Ill use one 2 times a week @l8totheparty 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Evening skincare.  My face looked glowy and felt moisturized. It was a no-makeup day. I just started the snoxin. Anyone else use/try it?20200119_020320.jpg
