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

Thank you! That's a great suggestion @naturalooks15 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@naturalooks15   I love how all this packaging g looks so light crisp and clean.  it’s very pleasing to look at.  

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@naturalooks15 wow, great line up! Baby facial is one of my favs!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I posted my usual routine a couple of days ago, but didn't even think about this variation when I mentioned my alternates. Once every couple of weeks I dermaplane, and then go easy on the actives for the night

Tula cleanser

Tinkle for dermaplaning

Follow up with Lava Magik scrub to remove any remaining flakiness

TCFS Rules of Mastic Facial Toner

ELF Coconut Mist and Erborian Eau Ginseng (top unmarked bottle) as essences

PC Resist 2% BHA (bottom unmarked bottle; I skip my retinol, vitamin c, and hydroquinone on dermaplaning nights, but BHA isn't really optional for me...and I was a bad, lazy gal last night and skipped it then, so tonight was doubly important)

Goldfaden Eye Bright (in the Clinique jar)

Clarins Lotus Oil + Andalou moisturizer (I meant to grab my Clinique Moisture Surge mask to avoid the vitamin c in this one...but it's in a tub, so the actives are probably dead anyways 😋)

 

Not pictured: Sara Happ Dream Slip, Dior lip oil, and cuticle oil will all happen at bedtime 😊

 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

How is that Tula cleanser- is it gentle and non-stripping? Does it leave a film on your skin? Does your skin feel tight after?

@l8totheparty 

It is fantastic! It's not stripping at all, but gets my face clean. I have a harder time quantifying residue...I wipe down with a rag, and follow with toner, but I don't feel like there's anything left after washing. The scent takes a little getting used to though. It's hard to describe, but it's kinda woody/herbal; I barely notice it anymore because I love the cleanser, but it's a turn off for some.

 

I'm torn between the want for "nicer" brands, and the want for good but low budget skincare, but this is the absolute top of my prestige brand cleanser list...with the right deal, I'd pick this up in a full size once I finish off my samples, instead of just getting CeraVe (which I'm also extremely happy with). 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Thank you for your in-depth answers for me, @RGbrown !  I would probably have to try it based on the scent you described first, before committing to a full bottle. 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@RGbrown you just reminded me... It's about that time to dermaplane! 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Good call on going easy on the actives after dermaplaning. That e.l.f. coconut mist sounds wonderfully hydrating @RGbrown! 🙂

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Morning was typical routine. Evening was focused on more hydration+moisture as somehow my cheeks went bit red in the afternoon and further irritated after BHA in the night. So thick layer of Squalane+Lala+F-Balm

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Love seeing your products! @naturalooks15 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

So much hydration, @naturalooks15! Hope the redness cleared up!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Your hydration-moisture focused products look amazing @naturalooks15! 💦💗

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@naturalooks15 very nice! How do you like the cosrx? It was 50% yesterday, and I was so tempted to get it!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I like it quite a bit. Not sure if you can see it, only 10% left in this bottle and I had already got a new one in Dec with coupons etc else I would have definitely bought it y’day.

this hydrates, is non-reactive even when skin is irritated (keeping it in fridge for sometime and using it on those days feels nice) so I can depend on it to provide hydration without agitating my skin further.  I can’t 100% be sure since I used it only 1 bottle but I feel it brightens also.

so you can buy during next sale and give it a try.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

This morning was my typical AM routine. And I just realized I haven’t stated my skin type in this thread yet: mostly-dry combo. My forehead is almost normal; nose and the area around it are very oily (that’s where all my big pores are); everywhere else is dry. Also, my skin is finicky/cranky about various ingredients.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

The supergoop is so great! @WinglessOne 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@WinglessOne I really like that Herbivore Emerald CBD + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil 1 oz/ 30 mL! I only have like 6 drops left though! 😩

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@averylayne  Isn’t it great? I definitely like the CBD + Adaptations Emerald Oil better than Herbivore’s original Emerald Oil (which I still have a bottle of; I use it as a body oil and don’t use it on my face anymore). I was nervous about the CBD version because I hate the smell of weed: it makes me nauseous. But this stuff’s not nearly as stinky as I feared. And it’s sooo moisturizing, and combats my irritation issues very well. 💚

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@WinglessOne agreed, has a bit of an earthy smell but doesn't smell like weed!
