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

I have not used the wander beauty for just that 'crisis of identity' reason! 


Also, I'm using the SK-II essence as well, and I'm liking it for how my skin feels while using it. My skin feels softer when I use it.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Crisis of identity is such a good way to describe it, @l8totheparty!


I'm glad you're liking the Pitera! It's great it makes your skin more soft!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I sampled the IT cleanser a few months ago and liked it; I’ve made a note to try the Philosophy one @haleyvvvv, but after I’ve made a dent in my cleanser collection. 😆 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

It's good, @itsfi. I think the It one is supposed to be anti-aging, but 🤷‍♀️? I mean, I've only been using a few weeks. Definitely get some packets of the Philosophy one (it lasts me a week), if you can, but I definitely feel you on the working through my cleansers.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@haleyvvvv, I have a very healthy supply of cleansers to rotate through; and they’re ones I really like so I’m not complaining. A lot of brands have been coming out with some fabulous cleansers which I’m also not complaining about. Great to have so many good options for folks. 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

That Skyn eye pen might be the most frustrating product I’ve tried from the brand, @haleyvvvv - you are not alone! Their eye gels on the other hand are lovely.


Very cool that you have a few samples of the CEO serum, I loved it because of the scent/consistency of the product (much like Truth Serum). Enjoy 😊 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

It's so unnecessarily frustrating @eshoe! it doesn't sell on it's own in Canada on the Sephora site, just in kits, so there's no chance of me buying it again, even though it does help the discoloration under my eyes.


Yeah! It's nice cause I'll have enough time to really see how the CEO works. I used it this morning and I liked how creamy it was, plus it smelled good! Love Deluxe Sizes from GWP and Favourites kits, lol.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@haleyvvvv  The Philosophy toner sounds interesting... I’ve never thought of clay as a toner ingredient. In fact, the only other clay toner I’ve ever seen (that I can recall, anyway) is Fresh’s. Seems like it’d be especially great for oily skin, or for combo skin that has a very oily zone. If I find a tester in a store, I’ll have to play with it. 

RE: Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I got the Philosophy Clay Toner a while back as a beauty promo and really enjoyed it! I couldn’t find it online for a while and ended up buying the It! Cosmetics Clay Mattifying toner instead. I ended up liking the It Cosmetics one even more! I use it when I’m super rushed in the morning and don’t have time to wash my face and do a full skincare routine 😂

Re: RE: Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@WinglessOne, it is definitely an oddity. I don't think I would try the Fresh one, as I do not really like their Umbrian Clay line, personally, I just its more gritty and drying than clearing, although I haven't tried the toner. Maybe I'll see if I can get a sample from a store. Definitely, if you get a chance to try this one, you should, or the It Cosmetics (although I've never tried, but it looks similar). I am really liking it much more than I thought I would, and I do like how clean and matte I look after (plus it's not drying, like I would expect a clay toner to be).


I think I might start using a clay one at one time of day and a hydrating one at the other (or depending on what my skin needs that day).


Thanks for the recommendation of the It Cosmetics, @mazzkm!

RE: Skincare Routine of the Day

AM/PM for today! January and February goal was to try and use up as many trial and sample size products that I could and not letting myself buy many new items until I go through my stash... of course I still bought new things, but I’m making a good dent! This morning I used some of my Boscia Hydration Gel, I’ve used this quite a few times and really like how light weight it is during the day. Doesn’t make me greasy, but also hydrating enough for my skin. A new purchase this month was the Inc.Redible Jade Roller, I actually quite like it for de-puffing right when I wake up in the morning, it feels nice, but I still use my regular brightening eye cream over top (the GlamGlow Bright Eyes). Tonight I used the the Clinique Moisture Surge Eye Serum, I find it hydrating but also quite tacky so I still use moisturizer over top!

Re: RE: Skincare Routine of the Day

@mazzkm curious about the @Dr. Jart+ Cicapair™ Tiger Grass Calming Mist.  Do you feel like it helps with redness?  The cicapair products have been hit or miss for me, but I always love trying new facial sprays.

Re: RE: Skincare Routine of the Day

@averylayne I don’t find it really reduces redness, but I have mild rosacea. I do find it is soothing and calms down any irritation on my skin!

Re: RE: Skincare Routine of the Day

good to know! thanks @mazzkm !

Re: RE: Skincare Routine of the Day

That boscia hydrating gel sounds lovely @mazzkm! 😃 Good luck working through your sample size products; you’ll use up a lot more than you think just by consistently using them! It’ll be fun to see which products will be full size purchases. 

Re: RE: Skincare Routine of the Day

Great mix of products, @mazzkm 💖

Re: RE: Skincare Routine of the Day

@mazzkm I've been trying to get through as many mini's as I can this month as well.  Looks like you've got a nice variety going!

Re: RE: Skincare Routine of the Day

@missjeanie I thought of a cool challenge name for that. We'll have to make a thread next year. "Fun-Size February" - to use up some mini goodness you might have forgotten about. 🙂

Re: RE: Skincare Routine of the Day

@ShortErica so good! Fun sized February!! We can continue into March with "Maximize Your Mini's March," and April with "All About Alternatives"? That one isn't as good, but we have a month to work on it, lol.

Re: RE: Skincare Routine of the Day

"Maximize Your Mini's March" is amazing @haleyvvvv! I'm all about the alliteration.
