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.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Last night's skincare: skin: recovering from hormonal breakouts, otherwise normal.  Weather: dry cold.20200212_224323.jpg

 

 

1st trial of the HERBIVORE - Lapis Balancing Facial Oil

I don't like to add 2 new items into my routine at the same time in case of a reaction, but I do have many, many foils and samples to try out. 1st reaction to this oil: I like it, it smells like....blueberries? How are oils supposed to balance my skin though? Good thing there is enough for another try in the little foil. 

 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

How did you find the herbivore oil @l8totheparty? I feel like the lapis is too much on it's own and like to mix it with the orchid and phoenix (I haven't tried emerald yet). Are you using it to reduce redness? That's what it excels at IMO.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I quite like the Lapis- I got 2 uses out of the foil. I used it for moisturizing and calming after my hormonal breakouts. I wish I had more to test. @haleyvvvv

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I've been unfortunately sick the past few days, so I haven't been using anything (which is terrible, but when you're sick there's not too much to do). Today I was able to do a mini night routine, hopefully getting back into the routine. 🤞

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Ughhh, hope you feel better soon, @haleyvvvv.  

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Thanks! @CookieGirl1!!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@haleyvvvv so sorry to hear you are under the weatherSmiley Sad it’s hitting here too and my heart goes out to you, it is no fun. 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Thank you @eshoe! its definitely going around!! Definitely no fun!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@haleyvvvv  Oh no, I hope you’re not part of the flu catchers club! Sadly, we’re still taking applications. Smiley Very Happy Smiley Sad Feel better soon! 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I dont think it's the flu, luckily! I did my flu shot already so that's good. Just a painful sore throat and weakness. I'm sorry you had the flu, @WinglessOne!! I hope you're feeling better?

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@haleyvvvv  Whew, I’m glad it’s not the flu! Smiley Happy I’m feeling much better now, running at 75% capacity. Even with a flu shot (I got one in December), this season’s flu seriously kicked my butt, so hopefully you won’t catch it. 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Glad you're feeling better, @WinglessOne! Hope you're at 100% soon!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@haleyvvvv  Aw sorry to hear you’re under the weather.  I’ve been falling asleep with and cuddling my sheet masks lately and doing them all warm in the mornings.  We do what we can.  
Your routine looks nice and moisturizing. 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Aw, thanks @heartsmyface!! Also, the image of cuddling masks had me 🤣🤣. 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Last night: BHA exfoliation, Jolly Ranchers, and one of the most frustrating masks I keep using. 

 

PM Feb 11. Products are numbered in the order I used them.PM Feb 11. Products are numbered in the order I used them.

Details: 

Spoiler
Wash: Paula’s Choice Hydralight Cleanser.  
 
Tone/hydrate: e.l.f. Hydrating Water Essence. 
 
Lip care: Aquaphor. At the end of this routine, I topped Aquaphor with Tatcha Kissu Lip Mask. 
 
BHA exfoliation: Paula’s Choice Clear Anti-Redness Exfoliating Treatment (regular strength). 
 
Serums: DDG Ferulic + Retinol Eye Serum under my eyes, then Paula’s Choice 10% Niacinamide Booster all over my face and neck. I decided to use the booster again without mixing it into anything. This booster makes my face look very bright the next morning. I actually kinda look awake in the morning now! 
 
Mask: OOZOO Face Injection Hydro Lift Mask. This is the 5th of 6 of these I’ve used, and I’ve hated using it all 5 times—but my skin looks and feels soooo nice afterward! But it’s such a PITA (for me) to prep and wear. I said I’d start posting in the weekly mask thread next time I mask up, so I’ll share my detailed thoughts in there either tonight or tomorrow. But man, I have a serious love-hate—er, hate-love relationship with this mask.
 
Hydrating mist: Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist. Believe it or not, this is the gratis bottle I got from Sephora in 2018. Smiley Very Happy It hasn’t gone bad yet! Last year I started using it to dampen my skin immediately before applying body lotion. But last night I needed something to lift my spirits after using The Mask of Angst, so I coated my face in a wonderful watermelon Jolly Rancher mist. 
 
Moisturizer: YTTP Superfood Moisturizer. I almost didn’t use it because my skin felt so moisturized after That %!@$& Mask, but I reached for it out of habit. 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@WinglessOne   Aw is it all the squishing to get the serum to distribute evenly?  I like that part but I have to be committed to the extra effort or I won’t even bother reaching for those.  Ha, I’m other words the novelty of them has mostly worn off.  Smiley Very Happy.  They do a good job though.  
Your skincare packaging tonight looks so medicinal. Hah, maybe it’s the syringe.  

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@heartsmyface  Nah, the squishing part is fine for me. After all, I’m a big fan of some other OOZOO masks. Smiley Wink The pain starts with the way the syringe is packaged: you have to be careful getting it out of its compartment without accidentally removing the plunger, or you’ll spill most of the ampule inside that compartment—which has large slits (front and back) that make it nearly impossible to rescue the spilled ampule. Plus, you have to work around the slits to get the dang syringe out in one piece. Then you have to mix 2 parts of ampule inside the syringe before injecting it all into the main mask compartment. THEN you do the squishy-squish. There are also problems with the mask’s size and adherence. I don’t enjoy using this mask at all. 

 

Unfortunately, my skin loves it. I need to find a mask with the same major ingredients that’s much easier and more pleasurable to use. Smiley Very Happy 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@WinglessOne   I don’t recall the mixing inside the syringe step.  I’m now having a moment wondering if I’ve been doing it wrong all along 😅 will it get me out of bed.....I thought about it but no.  Haha.    Sorry it works so well.  That’s kinda frustrating that it’s not enjoyable but you like the results.  

There’s GOT to be something out there to replace this one with.  It’s a mission! 😄

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Does the mist really smell jolly rancher sweet @WinglessOne? This is making me reconsider it...although I did just get one in boxycharm

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@haleyvvvv  That mist smells exactly like a watermelon Jolly Rancher. To me, that’s not a bad thing: I love Jolly Ranchers, but also the scent’s not so powerful that it overwhelms my sinuses. I’ve used (and been annoyed by) sheet masks that have much more obnoxious fragrance than this mist. But yeah, it’s a sweeter-than-natural-watermelon scent. Not as cloyingly sweet-smelling as it could be, though, and the scent doesn’t last long at all on skin.
