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

It is, @averylayne! I’ve been playing with it more, and even when I don’t use it all over my face, it gives the tops of my cheeks a pretty ‘fresh’ and light glow. I’ve been going without makeup more lately and it’s perfect for that!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@eshoe yes! I do that too, just a few light taps on to the cheekbones when I don't feel like using highlighter

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Yes to wearing sunscreen daily @eshoe! 👍🏼 How do you like the Nacific toner? Is the consistency more on the thin watery side or is it more viscous? 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I would say it’s more watery, @itsfi. I place a few drops in to the palm of my hand and have to pat pat pat quickly so it doesn’t all run down my arms:) I have the Calendula yet to try, as well.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Today's quick morning routine. So many things missing today otherwise I would have been late.20200120_164201.jpg

@l8totheparty you gotta do what you gotta do! 😉 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

How are you liking the Snoxin II @l8totheparty?

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

2 days so far, @itsfi , and it's nice!  I will have to use it longer to see. 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@l8totheparty That is an amazing routine! 

 

Best,
Rebecca

My pm routine

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I love the YTTP superberry mask and the Cosrx essence @Anjalisoni!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Me too 🥰

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Loooove the Youth To The People Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask with Vitamin C 2 oz/ 59 mL @Anjalisoni! I’m waiting on my order of the CosRx, the brand is new to me so I am excited to try it. Any tips/suggestions?

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

It’s quite thick as an essence so I use it after my lancome serum 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@Anjalisoni , you have some great skincare products in both your AM and PM routines. How do you like those Holifrog cleansers?

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

They are amazing I really like both of them and also stocked them during Dermstore sale

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I'm very intrigued by the holifrog products @Anjalisoni 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Oh, fun thread!

Oily but dehydrated skin, for reference. Last night's routine

IMG_20200120_140735701.jpg

 

Spoiler
Cleanse (daily)
Glow Recipe Blueberry Bounce Cleanser: pretty nice cleanser, but I finished it off last night, so I'll be swapping it out tonight. Haven't decided what's next yet though

Mask (as needed)
PTR Pumpkin Enzyme: staple for me, but I only use it once every couple of weeks or so since I have several exfoliants in my routine

Tone (daily)
CosRx AHA/BHA: nice AHA toner, though the BHA is underpowered (betaine salicylate is weaker than Salicylic Acid, and it's only 0.6% here to begin with...don't look to K-beauty for your BHA needs...it's regulated over there way more than it is here)

Essence (daily)
Elf Hydrating Mist + Erborian Eau Ginseng (small, clear bottle): both are perfectly fine, though I'm not looking to rebuy either one. While I like an essence in my routine, I haven't found one that says "I'm the best" for me. I will go back to the actual ELF essence instead of this hydrating mist at some point though, since it has niacinamide and that's a great ingredient for most anyone. 

Treat/Serums (all of these get used daily)
Paula's Choice Resist 2% BHA: love the BHA + peptides. Daily staple, must have, will never be without.
Urban Skin Rx Dark Spot Rapid Repair Retinol: works as well for me as other more expensive retinols, and at $25, is a potential contender for rebuy in the future. Has lots of other beneficial ingredients as well: niacinamide, squalane, azelaic acid, alpha arbutin, centella asiatica
Derma E Vitamin C: I don't love it quite as much as Exuviance, but this is a nice, budget friendly Vitamin C formula. Not sticky, doesn't mess with other layers.
Alpha Skincare 2% Hydroquinone (spot treat only since it also has 10% glycolic acid, and I don't need more AHA all over): helping with some spots more than others, but I wish I had gone with a hydroquinone that didn't also have AHA...would love to use this all over to see if it helped more.  

Eye (daily)
Goldfaden Bright Eyes: perfectly fine. I don't see much need for separate eye stuff...my eyes aren't particularly different from the rest of my face, but I keep using up samples as I get them. This has a nice texture, lightweight lotion-y, and soaks in well.

Moisturizer/Oil (daily)
Andalou Naturals Probiotic + C Renewal Cream: I love this for my winter moisturizer. Rich without being too heavy for me.
Clarins Lotus Oil: this is my favorite during my hormonal cycle...it really seems to help keep that breakout at bay.

Dry Shampoo (daily, maybe minus wash day...depends on if I shower in the morning or at night)
Pacifica Invisible Powers: I've only used this twice so far, and I'm not sure how I feel about it yet...

Lips (daily)
Sara Happ Dream Slip: total HG status 
Dior Lip Oil (gratis): I love a 2-step lip system for night. Treat with the Sara Happ, then seal it in with an oil. Baby soft lips every morning!

Nails (daily)
homemade cuticle oil: vitamin E + jojoba oil, with a touch of some other oil samples I had laying around, and a few drops of lemon essential oil for scent. This has been helping my nails way more than I ever thought it would.

 

My nightly routine is pretty stable, so I think I can cover pretty much every night with just a few variations in a separate pic

Spoiler
On makeup/sunscreen days, I ditch the above cleanser, and instead go with this cleansing routine:
Clinique TTDO liquid (for my eye makeup): love this stuff
Oil or balm cleanser, currently Hanskin Pore Cleansing Oil: I've only used it once so far, so not much of an opinion yet
Tarte Deep Dive Cleansing Gel + Foreo: I find this one a bit drying for me if used every day, but since I only wear makeup once or twice a week, it's a great deep cleanser on those days

I don't mask every single night, but I do try to use a clay mask a couple of times a week. Current one is Eve Lom Rescue Mask

If for any reason I don't want an acid toner, I have TCFS Rules of Mastic Facial Tonic to use instead

Once a week, I swap out my 2% BHA for the Paula's Choice Resist 4% BHA

And if it's not hormone week, I'm using Herbivore Emerald Oil instead of the Clarins above.

I didn't think to grab my aerosol dry shampoo for the pic, but I alternate aerosol vs powder. My current one is E&J Nirvana Black (smells divine, but super powdery)

 

And then there is the shameful, ultra lazy night. I try not to let this happen more than once or twice a month 🤪

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Yessss, @RGbrown, the wipe nights! I try not to do that too often but have a container of those ole cleansing wipes by my bed and in my suitcase when I just can not.

 

How is the Eve Lom mask?
