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

@haleyvvvv the Tatcha agrees with my skin. It’s winter and this is the first year I haven’t experienced overly dry cheeks. I am not saying this is 100% responsible for that, but it isn’t hurting! The pour spout is a plus, so I don’t inadvertently spill it every time I use it, too😉 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I will be investigating it, @eshoe!! Reduced dryness sounds pretty great!! Nice!! Thanks!!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

This is me going a lot more minimalist with my skincare routine! I do have other products I use depending on how my skin is feeling, but this is pretty typical for my combination skin.


First Aid Beauty Pure Skin Face Cleanser 8 oz/ 240 mL 
OLEHENRIKSEN Truth Serum Vitamin C Serum 1.0 oz/ 30 mL 
Herbivore Emerald CBD + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil 1 oz/ 30 mL 
REN Clean Skincare Evercalm™ Overnight Recovery Balm 1.02 oz/ 30 mL

Prescription clindamycin and trentinoin 
Farmacy Dew It All eye cream (no longer sold at Sephora, but at least I can get it from Farmacy direct)
Cerave moisturizer with sunscreen 



Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@txcatx Have you tried the re-formulated First Aid Beauty Pure Skin Face Cleanser ?  I just got mine recently when Ulta had it 50% off and I guess it's close enough, but I'm still experimenting.  I really thought I'd see some chatter about it on BIC.  IDK when they changed it.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I just got a sample tube of this cleanser in one of my orders a few weeks ago so I don't know if it's the reformulated version or not, but I do know it doesn't smell great. I do really like how it cleanses and how my skin looks after, but the smell is really making me want to switch to something else. Not sure if that was a thing with the old formula or not though.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@bellossomraptor I don't remember noticing much of a smell one way or another with the old or new version.  I hope you didn't get a bad batch!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@greeneyedgirl107 I haven't tried the reformulated version yet--I bought a couple tubes of the old formula when I saw it on sale last year and still working my way through them. I would definitely love to know what everyone thinks of the new formula, though.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@txcatx It isn't bad by any stretch of the imagination.  That said, I regret not stocking up.  I generally stock up on products - but I guess I do it more for haircare than anything else.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

So many amazing products, @faeriegirl!! That cleansing balm is definitely on my list!!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Woah look at all of that YTTP @faeriegirl! I can’t wait to try the cleansing balm. 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@eshoe  My skin loves YTTP💛

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@faeriegirl Thanks for posting on this!  This is one of my fave threads - love to see what people are really using.  I keep meaning to post my stuff.  If I get a week off next week, I should make a resolution to do it.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

This morning a very simple routine. I also used SPF but forgot to include as usual! Cool weather, low humidity. Skin is normal.


Trader Joe’s Watermelon Mist
REN Clean Skincare Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Toner 
Son & Park Beauty Water
iNNBeauty Slushy Serum Moisturizer Crush (cannot tag)

Youth To The People Superfood Air-Whip Lightweight Moisturizer with Hyaluronic Acid 2 / 59 
Clarins Total Eye Lift

SPF: Etude House Sunprise Mild Watery Light SPF 50+ and Dermstore Daily Mineral Sunscreen Sheer Tint Broad Spectrum SPF 40

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@eshoe Is the Beauty Water a toner or essence, or what?!  It piqued my interest.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

It is an essence, @greeneyedgirl107, and it is very watery. The only thing I do not like about it is the pour spout; I end up wasting some every time. Come to think of it, I have plenty of DS bottles, I should find a mini spray one to decant this to. It is thin like water but feels much ‘bigger’ on the skin, if that makes any sense.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

This morning I used:


CeraVe foaming facial cleanser 

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG


CeraVe Ultra Lightweight Moisturizing Lotion With SPF 30



I have oily skin and my skin concerns are acne, enlarged pores, redness, dark circles, and some uneven texture.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

This morning was a very simplified routine. Fairly humid so I used a light moisturizer.


Can’t forget the spf!


Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist 2.53 oz/ 75 mL 

Rodial Vitamin C Toner

The INKEY List Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL 

Volition Day Drops (mixed with IL serum)

Kate Somerville Wrinkle Warrior™ 2-in-1 Plumping Moisturizer + Serum 1.7 oz/ 50 mL 

Biossance Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen (won’t tag)

Dermstore Daily Mineral Sunscreen (mimics my beloved Coola Matte Sunscreen which was sadly discontinued)

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@eshoe  Great idea keeping it simple!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@ather I think it is easier to do in the summer, my skin needs a little extra hydration in the winter.
