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).

โญ Sometimes if all you can do is your skincare, that is enough.

Thanks @mazzkm!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I've tried that Kate foil and I found it nice for daytime.  I've used the FAB both morning and night. 

Good luck with your challenge! @ShortErica 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I'm hoping it is doable @l8totheparty. I'm thinking 1-2 uses per sample. I can't wait to share my feelings once I try them all. ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@ShortErica To decide which to use day vs. night, Iโ€™d need to look at each moisturizerโ€™s ingredients. For daytime, I like ingredients that prep my skin for, and protect it from, the dayโ€™s environmental stressors. Thatโ€™s why Iโ€™d only use DE Lala Retro in the AM: it used to be my beefed-up skin barrier for frigid windy winter days, and wasnโ€™t needed at night while I was in my nice warm bed. ๐Ÿ™‚ Iโ€™ve never used the Nature Republic cactus gel, but Iโ€™d probably apply that one at night as a recovery moisturizerโ€”though I can see how it might also feel nice during the day. 

 

Besides Lala, the only one of those moisturizers Iโ€™ve used is FAB Ultra Repair Cream. Iโ€™d use that one at night, but only because it wasnโ€™t moisturizing enough during the day for me. Your mileage may vary. I do have a Sulwhasoo moisturizer sample somewhere but Iโ€™ve never tried it. 

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. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@ShortErica  The only 2 Iโ€™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. Iโ€™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 tonightโ€™s episode of My Wallet Wishes I Hadnโ€™t Tried It...In tonightโ€™s episode of My Wallet Wishes I Hadnโ€™t Tried It...
Details: 
Spoiler
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 hadnโ€™t. ๐Ÿ˜„ No other wipes compare to these magical things. They removed all my makeup and Iโ€™m pretty sure they also got my sunscreen. To test that, I used Paulaโ€™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. Thatโ€™s unheard of for my dry skin and makeup/cleansing wipes. I bought these specifically for travel purposes but man, itโ€™ll be hard not to use them at home! 
 
Moisturizer: I probably didnโ€™t need this after those magic wipes, but I apply a thin layer of YTTP Superfood Moisturizer anyway. 
 
Lip care: Good olโ€™ Aquaphor. 
Part 2 happened about an hour after my workout: 
 
Retinol nightRetinol night

Wash: Paulaโ€™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 Paulaโ€™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. Theyโ€™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. Itโ€™s just slower. 
 
Mask: Itโ€™s Skin Collagen Nutrition Mask. I didnโ€™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 bleepinโ€™ sheet mask again :DThat bleepinโ€™ sheet mask again ๐Ÿ˜„

Wash: Paulaโ€™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 Paulaโ€™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:  
 
Had a much better Meltdown experience this time.Had a much better Meltdown experience this time.

Wash: Paulaโ€™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: Paulaโ€™s Choice Clear Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution. 
 
Serums: The Inkey List Retinol. Then I applied Paulaโ€™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 donโ€™t want them to go to waste. But I donโ€™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 Iโ€™m subconsciously trying to finish this bottle, because I donโ€™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 didnโ€™t burn or cause redness/itching/hives. It didnโ€™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. Theyโ€™re so good, my skin didnโ€™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). Thatโ€™s how good Samoas are. Thatโ€™s how good the KGD wipes are: they contain lavender and my face still loves โ€˜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. ๐Ÿ˜„ 

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 ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ? 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. Framboosโ„ข 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ @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 Iโ€™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
