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

@l8totheparty sounds like THE ORDINARY - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution may be what you are looking for, according to some Smiley Wink @sprocketta 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

If they only sold that in Canada!!  I wish! I read it has to do with the AHA%. But next time I'm in the USA, by goodness, there will be shopping!  Babyfacial and Ordinary 30% here I come! Haha

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Lol, @l8totheparty. I've heard a range of sensations for the PTR, but everyone's skin is different.

 

For TLC it's hard, because I think most of the products that have both that I've come across are not really a night serum more a mask or peel so there's a much higher concentration or they're as expensive (DDG pads). I've been using TO Lactic Acid for an AHA twice a week and only using a BHA in a weekly mask thing. The Herbivore prism old formula (5 and not 12 percent aha) was probably the closest in terms of like a product to use similarly in a routine (at least that I've come across), but also wasn't super cheap. The big container is so expensive but the little ones are fairly affordable and do last a while.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

This morning and tonight. Weather is pretty normal, skin is annoyed and in need of TLC but I’ve been too tired to properly assess the whole situation. Some exfoliating is needed which hopefully will happen after spending the day gardening tomorrow.AMAM

Spoiler
I didn’t feel up to doing much of anything today, and these were the stars 🌟 of the show. The Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser is gentle enough to sub for an oil. Loving the Rodial, really brightens my face which it needs at times. The Peach & Lily I still feel like I haven’t given a 100% go so I need to keep working on that one.

I am gaining appreciation for the Pyunkang Yul, not necessarily an SK-II fanatic but I would be interested in a comparison between the two. PMPM

 More thoughts on the ALPYN BEAUTY - Calming Sleeping Mask with Melatonin & Wild Dandelion tomorrow, been trying it out now for a couple of weeks and am torn. Finished the ALGENIST - GENIUS Sleeping Collagen and love it, though I currently overwhelmed with nighttime moisturizers. 

Curious why the Herbivore Bakuchiol is no longer available on Sephora, love it and will be repurchasing it as my skin responds favorably to it.

 

 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I just checked Sephora and the Herbivore Bakuchiol is gone from Sephora  Canada as well. Huh. Wonder why?

@eshoe 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

No ideas @l8totheparty, I would love to know which of their products is the best-selling, though. Maybe the Bakuchiol doesn’t sell well on Sephora, who knows🤷🏻‍♀️ 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@eshoe  Oh no, that is really strange about the Herbivore Bakuchiol. I hope it comes back for sale on sephora, as I really like it too. It looks to still be available on their main consumer site, though, so I imagine that's a good sign.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I hope it’s not going anywhere @PrettyPaint, it’s the only product that smoothes my skin and stays that way for hours!

RE: Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

That is so odd about the Bakuchiol! Especially because it is removed completely and not just out of stock 🤔

Re: RE: Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I know, @mazzkm! It’s going to be a tough one to replace if I have to🤨

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@eshoe ooh I've been so curious about the Peach and Lily glass skin.  How do you like it?

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@averylayne I like the Peach & Lily, I’ve only used it a handful of times so I don’t have a strong opinion yet. It has a nice viscosity and absorbs quickly. No scent, which is nice, too. I will happily finish this, although I think there are similar products that perform nearly as well so I most likely won’t be repurchasing. 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@eshoe good to know! No scent is always a plus, and so is quick absorption. thanks!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

It’s a beautiful serum @averylayne. sometimes it’s just difficult to differentiate between products. I used to be a one brand only gal, and was totally ok and content with that. Whatever X brand was releasing that season, I was happy with; I wasn’t so concerned with the advances in beauty technology as I was in trying something new from them. No pressure, just a fun curiosity that was satisfied from spring to summer, summer to fall, etc.

 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@eshoe I definitely agree with you about the difficulty to differentiate.  Often times, different brands will come out with products that are so similar and of course reviews always say it's the best...but you can't have 50 of the same serum that's ranked as number 1! Being brand loyal has it's advantages haha

RE: Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

My product envy is REAL! Rosacea is a jerk, and requires me to follow a pretty simple, targeted routine. As much I'd love to be a skincare junkie, the experimentation isn't worth the risk of flare-ups. And many products that target redness - looking at you, Dr. Jart Cica line! - contain ingredients that exacerbate my problem. 

 

Thankfully I have an esthetician here in Chicago whose line (I assume private label) keeps my skin looking healthy. The first picture is my everyday routine: cleanser, redness-reducing serum, moisturizing sunscreen or night cream, and an eye cream (not pictured). I'd been using her Vitamin C serum as well, but like all the others I've ever tried, it broke me out. The second picture includes my weekly or occasional treatments, my favorite of which is the BHA/enzyme peel (AHAs and retinols are tricky). I also love the Karuna and Leaders 7 Wonders masks, but don't have any on hand. 

 

The only products I ever use that I can actually tag are THE INKEY LIST - Rosehip Nourishing Night Oil, CLINIQUE - Take The Day Off Cleansing Oil (not pictured), THE ORDINARY - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5, and occasionally LANEIGE - Lip Sleeping Mask. How sad! 😂

Re: RE: Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

You gotta go with what works for your skin, @tastelikewater! Even if they can't be tagged 🤣! How is TO Hyaluronic Acid? 

Re: RE: Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Simple yet effective?! That sounds like a great routine! @tastelikewater 

Re: RE: Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

What's the product in the Cica line that messes with your skin @tastelikewater? A not-so-fancy but effective routine is perfect! Have you tried any other The Inkey List products?

Re: RE: Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@ShortErica Several of the Cicapair products contain lavender and rosemary oils, as well as alcohol and citric acid, all of which are no-nos for me. I learned it the hard way; every single time I used the DR. JART+ - Cicapair™ Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30, I broke out (they look like small pustules but are surrounded by redness, which is how I can tell the difference between a flare-up and regular acne).  

 

I bought THE INKEY LIST - Bakuchiol Retinol Alternative Moisturizerrecently because my derm discouraged me from using retinols, but I haven't committed to trying it yet. My skin's been in a good place recently, and so I'm hesitant to make any changes. 

Re: RE: Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@tastelikewater Yeah, the essential oils can be irritating. I really wanted to like the Color Correcting Treatment but the match was just a bit dark on me.

 

Take your time. I'll be curious when you try it though. I think some others have posted about bakuchiol because they didn't have a good time with retinol. I think one was @eshoe
