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: Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

How have you incorporated the Origins Soothing Treatment lotion into your routine? I picked up a bottle to use on my KP on my arms and it has really helped the redness, but I’ve been hesitant to use it on my face.

Re: RE: Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@mazzkm oh yes, it's very mild, I've never had any harsh reactions ever

Re: RE: Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Good to know! Do you use it more as a lotion, or moisturizing toner? 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I have that eye cream waiting in my mini fridge, @lmaster - how do you like it? Also, the Pretty Filter...is that a primer?

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@eshoe I like the eye cream, I'm especially loving the applicator!! No complaints yet! The pretty filter is a thicker cream moisturizer I use at night sometimes,,, that's why I have not even opened the GR banana moisturizer,,,I have too many open at the moment 🤦

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Ahhh, ok. Thought maybe it was a primer, pretty packaging 🤩. I opened the eye cream and used it once, it seemed nice. It’s next on the list to finish!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Lots of goodies here @lmaster! I *might* give the Bakuchiol a try later this year. My skin has just not tolerated retinols well so I’m both intrigued and a little skittish about bakuchiol. 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@itsfi it's so mild on my skin, I love it, I have a TS and bought another FS, but I do want to try The INKEY List Retinol Anti-Aging Serum

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@lmaster, I've heard from lots of folks, in the skincare industry and out of it that it's a good alternative for people like me who haven't done well with retinols. I have a DS of it, a couple I think and just need to get myself to try it out. I was waiting for my skin to readjust to not traveling every week and am working on clearing up some pesky pimples that popped up, but if all goes well, maybe I'll give it a try at the end of next month. 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@itsfi I've not tried many retinol products, but I also have not had major issues with any either, which is why I do want to try the inkey list, but the herbivore feels so good on my skin, and doesn't leave a major tackiness

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Okay, here’s my typical retinol night routine in photo format. It might look complicated or overwhelming in spreadsheet format but it’s really quite simple and efficient, especially if I don’t do any masking (I didn’t tonight):

I “owl code” a few of my reusable containers. It’s really just color coding, but with cute owl stickers. 😄  Green owl = YTTP Superfood Moisturizer (spinach and kale!). Here are a couple others:

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@WinglessOne those reusable bamboo pads look nice, this is a good reminder to pick some up and transfer away from disposable ones. And you're owl system is amazing 🦉!

 

The inky list retinol is really nice (it's my current mid strength retinol), but sadly not convenient in Canada! I'd be curious about their retinol alternative.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Thanks @haleyvvvv ! I’m now on year 2 of reusable bamboo rounds and I don’t miss disposables at all. You can also find microfiber rounds. You could even make your own out of old Makeup Eraser type towels or cotton flannel shirts/sheets, if you have the time and patience—and a sewing machine, unless you enjoy hand sewing/binding lots of circles. 🙂 I bought enough rounds that I can go 2-3 weeks without needing to wash them, in case I get lazy about laundry. 

 

I’ll tag you when/if I try The Inkey List Bakuchiol. 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Thank you @WinglessOne! I'll definitely be on the lookout for the bamboo ones, I haven't sewed in years, lol.

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@WinglessOne  How did I not know Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting comes in GEL??  I'm currently using the liquid, but I will be getting gel from now on! Thanks for posting!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@averylayne  Hope you like the gel! It contains more skin soothing ingredients than the liquid version. 🙂 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@WinglessOne good to know, thanks!

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

Where do you get those very handy containers? @WinglessOne 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

@l8totheparty  I bought mine on Amazon. If you look for them, make sure they’re reusable: some Amazon sellers have single use bottles that are probably meant to be used for samples. My travel size bottle (with the orange owl sticker) is clear plastic, so I covered it with a blank mailing label to block out light. 

 

If you happen to have an empty FS jar of Drunk Elephant Lala Retro or Protini, then you already have a reusable airless vacuum jar. 🙂 I think you can reuse DE’s airless bottles, too. 

 

When filling one of these airless jars, be sure to tap out any air bubbles in the product before using the jar. Otherwise it’ll randomly stop working when the pump hits an air bubble/pocket—and if that happens, just open the jar and tap the bottom a few times to remove the air. I’ve gotten really good at refilling mine in near darkness as quickly as possible (to reduce air exposure). It’s far less frustrating than my old film photography days of popping film canisters and reeling negatives in total darkness. 😄 

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

So informative, @WinglessOne !  Thanks for sharing your hints and tips for the airless containers. 😊

Re: Skincare Routine of the Day

I love the skincare carousel @WinglessOne. Those owls, ha! Way to take the best part of the day and make it even better!

I gave my daughter my last empty jar of La La and she put shower gel in it. Those containers are so handy.
