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

Last night’s routine...I forgot to include moisturizer 🤦🏻‍♀️  Normal humidity and little breakouts allllll over my face.

Spoiler
I haven’t been using a sleeping mask much this winter since I’ve been mixing in Volition’s Day and Night Actives into my serums (I did use the Night one, just forgot to include it). I used the Youth To The People Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask with Vitamin C 2 oz/ 59 mL two consecutive nights and what’ve been experiencing an avalanche of little blemishes all over my face since. I thought I would switch to the Glow Recipe Mini Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask 1 oz/ 30 mL for fun, since it is considerably lighter. It also tends to pill (or is it peeling off dead skin???), so I wasn’t worried about over-moisturizing. 

I bought the Glossier Milky Jelly makeup remover out of curiosity, and can safely say that nothing could replace my Bioderma Sensibio micellar water. This is fine, it doesn’t irritate my eyes which is important, but I do have to swipe the cotton pad repeatedly to remove mascara, which can tend to end up pulling out lashes. 

I *think* the Biossance Squalane + 10% Vitamin C Dark Spot Serum 1.0 oz/ 30 mL might be slightly decreasing the intense of my hyperpigmentation. I use it 2-3 times a week on my cheeks. Realistically, it isn’t erasing anything, but I do feel the spots are becoming less visible with time. I am also so, so excited the Rose balm is now available in a tube!!  When I am ready for a new lip mask, or something to throw in my purse, Biossance Squalane+ Rose Vegan Lip Balm 0.51 oz/ 15 mL is going to be it💞

I mistakenly thought the fresh Sugar Mint Rush Freshening Lip Treatment .15 oz/ 4.3 g was a scrub. This sample is nice, and stayed on my lips a decent amount of time. It did feel a little cooling at first, but that dissipated as quickly as I noticed it. My daughter bought me the Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist 2.53 oz/ 75 mL for my birthday, which made me laugh as she enjoys it just as much as I do! I feel ready for summer with it:)

eta: I ended up using Drunk Elephant Protini™ Polypeptide Moisturizer. I’m not a big fan of this, just finishing a sample jar. I much prefer LaLa.

The night time line up 💕💕💕 love a good skin care routine, and love it even more when it’s pretty

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@CatheRH Beautiful routine! I've been thinking about trying those Glow Recipe products. Such a cute pic! Have a great day 🙂

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Oh gosh, @CatheRH, this line up is gorgeous!! Love the plum plump serum!!

 

Are you using a night moisturizer or mask? Or is this enough? My dry skin would need a lot more.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Love this routine! The dew drops have been one of my favorite products lately 😍 How are you liking the Glow Recipe Plum Plump™ Hyaluronic Acid Serum 1.0 oz/ 30 mL and Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow PHA +BHA Pore-Tight Toner 5.07 oz/ 150 mL? Those are on my loves list. I am thinking of trying those next.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Absolutely love them both! I really have noticed a difference in the hydration /dewy glow in my skin which is exactly what I was going for! The only thing I would say is that the Glow Recipe Plum Plump™ Hyaluronic Acid Serum 1.0 oz/ 30 mL didn't last me nearly as long as I hoped it would because it take several pumps to get enough product for my face and neck but, overall, I’m so happy with them and would recommend getting them!! I like having multiple of the Glow Recipe products to use together in my routine because I find that it does increase the effectiveness of them! Their a bit pricey but I’d say give it a go! 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@CatheRH Thank you so much for sharing your insight and experience with these products! I am happy to hear that you love them. It is great to know that mixing Glow Recipe products increase their effectiveness, especially since I incorporated the dew drops into my routine. I will check them out! 😊

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@CatheRH   This is so pink and pretty to look at!  I love everything here but haven’t tried the Josie Maran pink algae serum.  How are you liking it?  

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I just started using the Josie Maran Argan Beta Retinol Pink Algae Serum 0.85 oz/ 25 mL #and really like it so far but can’t really speak for noticeable results quite yet since it hasn’t been more than a couple days since starting. The consistency was a lot more oily than I expected so it initially made my face look greasy, but after a few minutes it seeped into my skin leaving a gorgeous hydrated glow! I followed up with a moisturizer after. 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

My skincare lineup the past few nights.  During the day the Sunday Riley A+ Is switched out with Sunday Riley C.E.O. and I add FIrst Aid Beauty Niacinamide brightening cream.  
I have been avoiding exfoliating skincare since my face feels raw around the nostrils and have been sticking with more gentle products.   Oil has been one of the more important steps lately to keep my skin barrier as safe as possible with all the mask friction.  And I’ve been carrying around a little bottle of hyaluronic acid to reapply throughout the day as needed.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@heartsmyface My skin can feel raw around the nostrils even in the summer.  For months now, I've been slathering on Vaseline but I can't help but wonder if Aquaphor ointment or CeraVe Healing Ointment would be better since they have more goodies in them for skin.  Thoughts?

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@greeneyedgirl107  For right around the nostrils if it gets super raw from constant moisture I don’t mess around and use polysporin gel.   it’s hydrating, antibacterial and promotes healing and prevents infection better than anything else IMO.  I have it in my head that all the mouth and nose breathing is soaking my face in bacteria and that any open wound is going to get infected.  I may have become a full on germaphobe.  
For the rest of my face I try to keep the moisture light hence the hyaluronic acid touch ups throughout the day.  That cerave healing ointment looks tempting though.  If it’s not too too heavy it may be useful in reducing mask friction.    
I cannot stand the texture of pure Vaseline but I do enjoy one of their aloe body lotions- that’s off topic though.  

  

 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@heartsmyface I've used polysporin and you're right - it IS good!  When I was able to wear scrubs to work, I would keep some in my pocket for when I got super duper dry.  

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Same, same, @heartsmyface!! I completely have been avoiding exfoliators since I realized that the CEO serum has glycolic acid, and had been exfoliating at least daily if not more than once 🤦‍♀️, which was too much for me. 

 

This is a lovely hydrating line up!! So smart to spray with the hydrating mist, I keep forgetting to do that when I wear a mask. I hope your skin feels less raw soon!!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@haleyvvvv   Did I not respond?  oh gosh I don’t think I posted my response yesterday and it’s gone.
The glycolic acid in the ceo doesn’t seem too bad on its own.  I didn’t even notice it was there.  Thank goodness I haven’t been using it near my nose in fear the vitamin c might burn.  I’m used to using multiple exfoliants on the regular with no issues but with the more frequent mask wearing everything’s changed.   

The reapplications of HA have been saving me.  I’ve been trying to touch up whenever I reapply lipgloss but it’s not a solid habit yet.  Im doing much better today with the rawness thanks, but I also haven’t been out anywhere so my skin’s had a much needed break.  

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

It is all good, @heartsmyface!! I'm glad the glycolic acid in the CEO serum isn't irritating (I can't handle it with other acids, but have been finding its okay on its own). I've got to remember to being a spray when I have to go out, such a good idea!!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Need to post my new routine now that I have new goodies from my Galentines day gift box 😍. will be back later today or tonight.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@haleyvvvv how do you like the Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Liquid toner? I have been interested in adding a hydrating toner to my routine. Do you ever use that along with an exfoliating toner?

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I like it, @carlyw13, but alcohol is high up in the list. There's not really a scent and it is a bit thicker, which I prefer. I'm still on the search for a great hydrating toner. I for some reason use a different hydrating toner at night and in the morning. If I use an exfoliating toner, I use it at night, along with a hydrating toner. I have been pairing it with the CEO serum, which has a little bit of AHA, and it was fine.
