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

Thanks @WinglessOne! I think I will use the cactus gel between my weekend frisbee games. I think any illuminating ones will be for the day and I'll have to look at ingredients for the others. 😊

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@ShortErica  The only 2 I’ve used are the FAB and DE and they worked best for me at night.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Thanks @faeriegirl! I appreciate the insight.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Tonight was a split PM routine. I’m finally restarting my nighttime exercise routine and managed to get some cardio in tonight, along with some badly needed stretching. 
 
Part 1 of my skincare routine was pre-workout: 
 
In tonight’s episode of My Wallet Wishes I Hadn’t Tried It...In tonight’s episode of My Wallet Wishes I Hadn’t Tried It...
Details:

Makeup removal: Koh Gen Do Spa Water Cleansing Cloths. I could no longer resist the hype and had to try these for myself, and now I wish I hadn’t. 😄 No other wipes compare to these magical things. They removed all my makeup and I’m pretty sure they also got my sunscreen. To test that, I used Paula’s Choice Gentle Touch Makeup Remover just under my eyes, to confirm no concealer was left behind. The KGD wipes left my face wonderfully soft and hydrated, and they even felt moisturizing. That’s unheard of for my dry skin and makeup/cleansing wipes. I bought these specifically for travel purposes but man, it’ll be hard not to use them at home! 
 
Moisturizer: I probably didn’t need this after those magic wipes, but I apply a thin layer of YTTP Superfood Moisturizer anyway. 
 
Lip care: Good ol’ Aquaphor. 
Part 2 happened about an hour after my workout: 
 
Retinol nightRetinol night

Wash: Paula’s Choice Hydralight Cleanser. 
 
Tone/essence: e.l.f. Hydrating Water Essence. I meant to test a Frudia toner instead but forgot. Hope I remember tomorrow. 
 
Lip care: Aquaphor, topped at the end of this routine with Tatcha Kissu lip mask. 
 
Serums: The Inkey List Retinol. Then I applied Paula’s Choice Clinical 20% Niacinamide Serum on just my undereyes, oily zone, and chin. This stronger niacinamide serum is having a noticeable effect on my bumpy tear troughs. They’re still bumpy but not as severely. Today my concealer sat better under my eyes than it has in years. I do think the 10% Niacinamide Booster is also effective. It’s just slower. 
 
Mask: It’s Skin Collagen Nutrition Mask. I didn’t need a huge masking boost tonight, so I just went with this hydrating and moisturizing sheet. 
 
Moisturizer: Herbivore Emerald CBD Oil, followed by YTTP Superfood Moisturizer. 
Last night was charcoal mask night: 
 
That bleepin’ sheet mask again :DThat bleepin’ sheet mask again 😄

Wash: Paula’s Choice Hydralight Cleanser. 
 
Tone/essence: e.l.f. Hydrating Water Essence. 
 
Lip care: Aquaphor, topped at the end of this routine with Tatcha Kissu lip mask. 
 
Serums: DDG Ferulic + Retinol Eye Serum under my eyes. After the charcoal mask, I used Paula’s Choice Clinical 20% Niacinamide Serum on my whole face. 
 
Mask: Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask. I usually apply this only to my oily zone, but last night I went full face with it to help reduce some acne. Since this mask always dries out my face, I also used an OOZOO Face Injection Hydro Lift Mask. 
 
Moisturizer: Herbivore Emerald CBD Oil, followed by YTTP Superfood Moisturizer.
Thursday night was my second Meltdown attempt:

Wash: Paula’s Choice Hydralight Cleanser. 
 
Tone/essence: e.l.f. Hydrating Water Essence. 
 
Lip care: Aquaphor, topped at the end of this routine with Tatcha Kissu lip mask. 
 
Exfoliant: Paula’s Choice Clear Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution. 
 
Serums: The Inkey List Retinol. Then I applied Paula’s Choice Clinical 20% Niacinamide Serum to my undereyes, nose, and chin. 
 
Mask: Yadah Soothing Jelly Pack. I use these only because I have a bunch of them and don’t want them to go to waste. But I don’t like these. They do nothing for my skin. I think this will be the last one I use. 
 
Hydrating mist: Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow. I think I’m subconsciously trying to finish this bottle, because I don’t normally use it as frequently on my face as I have lately. I usually use it as a pre-lotion body mist, and not everyday. 
 
Moisturizer: Herbivore Emerald CBD Oil, followed by YTTP Superfood Moisturizer.  
 
Spot treatment: Blume Meltdown, used directly on jawline acne and nowhere else. This time I applied it after moisturizing and has no bad reaction, hooray! It tingled a bit on one area, but didn’t burn or cause redness/itching/hives. It didn’t make acne disappear but did reduce the size of some of it. 
 
 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Those Koh Gen Do wipes are magical.  MA.GI.CAL. simply the best wipes. I wish I had never tried them, as I am forever spoiled by face wipes now. Plus they are $$$ so I may not ever be able to afford them again. I consider them to be along the lines of a high-end face mask- not necessary but a wonderful, lux bonus; a way to feel extra. @WinglessOne 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@l8totheparty  They really are fantastic. They’re so good, my skin didn’t react badly at all to them, even though they contain lavender extract which usually causes problems for me. Some seriously good witchcraft was used to make these. 

 

They remind me of my favorite Girl Scout cookie. I hate shredded coconut with a burning passion. (Coconut in any other form is good, though!) But I looooove Samoas (aka Caramel deLites). That’s how good Samoas are. That’s how good the KGD wipes are: they contain lavender and my face still loves ‘em. 

 

Off topic: do Canadian Girl Guides sell more flavors of cookies yet? I was born and raised in Michigan, so I remember a few friends who crossed the border specifically to buy Girl Scouts cookies during cookie season. We even have Girl Scout cookie ice cream (sold by a couple ice cream brands) here in the US. 😄 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Nope, we have 2 Girl Guide cookies- chocolate mint and the sandwich cookie only. @WinglessOne I haven't bought them in long while! My coworkers have sometimes brought them in. Samoas sound right up my alley!  Hm...now I'm craving cookies lol 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Almost every night is an episode of my wallet wishes I hadn't tried this! I feel this so much @WinglessOne! But when you find a product that works, what are you going to do 🤷‍♀️? Those wipes sound so lux! And I'm glad the Meltdown worked this second time!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@WinglessOne  Thanks for all of the reviews!  Those Koh Gen Do Spa Water Cleansing Cloths look amazing. And I'm actually kind of curious about the meltdown now.

Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask Enzymatic Dermal Resurfacer - first time trying it out! 

Tonight:

Time to test out the Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Framboos™ Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL- I loved it the first time, let's give it another shot. 20200229_010208.jpg

 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

How was the PTR mask, @l8totheparty? That's good that you liked the TLC! I found it did nothing for my skin, unfortunately.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

1st time PTR pumpkin user, long-time follower ha. It was alright.  I read that it caused tingling but I had no tingling.  My skin did feel smoother afterwards. 

 

The TLC - 2nd use, maybe less wow vs the 1st use. I'm happy I have the little container to try out, as I wouldn't have tried it otherwise.  The price point of the big container makes me wonder if there is another similar yet more cost effective product out there.

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 😉 @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 

@eshoe 

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

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!
