Weekly Beauty Challenge: Your Skincare Regimen

True story: There is a woman in our office whose nightly skincare routine consists of 15 different products. Now, as the girl in the corner hoarding nail polishes, I never judge people on their product obsessions. But it did get me thinking about skincare routines and how they are so varied and personalized. And because I'm nosy and I know we have more than our fair share of skincare junkies in the BT community, I want details!


So for this week's Beauty Challenge, let's talk regimens. What's your daily (or nightly, or both) skincare regimen? Be sure to mention what type of skin you have (so that we can help and enable each other) and as always, bonus points if you post a pic!


Show & Tell!

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Your Skincare Regimen

I have very oily (bud dehyrdated) skin that is acne prone (and I also pick at things...naughy, I know :-\)



Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser (as a precleanse)

Kate Somerville Detox Daily Cleanser

Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic or Michael Todd Blue Green Algae Toner (alternating because the Blue Green Algae Toner has antibacterial properties - great when I have a breakout; and Liz Earle because its moisturizing and balances my skin nicely)

DDF Benzoil Peroxide Gel as a spot treatment

Shiseido Urban Defense SPF 42

Clinique DDMG w/ a drop of JM Argan Oil for added moisture.



Simple MU wipe or Boscia Make Up Break Up Cool Cleansing Oil to remove makeup.

Fresh Soy Face Cleanser with Clarisonic Mia

Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner (when I don't use a mask)

DDF Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment

Peter Thomas Roth VIZ-1000 Hyaluronic Acid Serum

JM Argan Oil


Masks (Each 1x per week):

Liz Earle Deep Cleansing Mask

REN Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask

*after these, I use the Michael Todd Toner*

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Your Skincare Regimen

I use the Ole Henriksen Youth Activating Oil & Bare Minerals Foaming Face Scrub & they work GREAT together.

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Your Skincare Regimen

@candacebt, Thanks! Lol i didn't think about all the "a's" when i made the account! Skincare is the one thing i find incredibly important! And It's an Avon Bag, i saw it in one the booklets and had to have it! I used it for my Skincare products at first but it was so incredibly packed and didn't fit half of it so i found another use for it!

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Your Skincare Regimen

@Meg82 - I think that they do recommend also cleaning after using the cleansing wipes, but honestly I don't usually, and the cleansing wipes are better than nothing! Especially since I wash my face every morning. At night I'll usually use my Boscia or Philosophy Cleansing Oil and wipe it off with a cleansing wipe, that way my face doesn't feel dry and tight.


@Kalex - have you tried the Algenist Retinol Serum? After doing all of that research and hearing good things about it I want to check it out.


@arielaaaaaa (btw, I think I spell your name w/ a different # of a's every time I right back to you. Smiley Happy) - Yaaaay skincare junkies! Your collection is impression. I'm in love with the little case you have for your samples. I have YET to figure out a good way to store all of my skincare samples. They're all over the place and it's getting a little ridiculous.


@consolvo - Try the First Aid Beauty 5 in 1 eye cream! It is a little pricey, but it's great.


@curly0306 - I've never heard of this cerave brand (and we don't sell it, so it must not exist Smiley Happy). But I'm intrigued!

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Your Skincare Regimen

1. cerave am lotion (morning)

2. cerave foaming wash (morning)

3. aczone acne gel (morning & night)

4. desodine lotion (morning & night) It helps keep my redness down on my cheeks.

5. cerave moisturizing lotion (night)

6. cerave hydrating cleanser (night)


Once a week I've been using my clarisonic mia 2 with the delicate brush head and I use dermalogica's daily microexfoliant once a week as well.


For reference I have very sensitive, acne prone, combination skin. It was quite difficult to find products that work for me. The only thing I've been trying to get rid of now are my pesky blackheads and trying to lessen my facial redness. If anyone has some suggestions I would appreciate it! Smiley Happy Oh and I just ordered the aztec healing clay mask, so I'm excited to try that out. 

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Your Skincare Regimen

1. Perricone Nutritive Cleanser w/ Clarisonic (Evening: Korres Pomegranite wipe)

2. Koh Gen Do cleansing water

3. Lancome Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Eye

4. Dior Capture Totale One Essential Serum - I got 5 of the 100 pt. perk size - (Evening: Murad Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum)

5. Multi-Perfecting Pore Corrector Gel Moisturizer

6. Lancome Bienfait Multi-vital - SPF 30 Cream (Evening: Korres Greek Yoghurt Sleeping Facial)

7. Peter Thomas Roth Un-wrinkle Pink Ice Lip Balm (no longer available)


Weekly or bi-weekly

8. ExfoliKate

9. GlamGlow  Super-Mud™ Clearing Treatment


I substitute other things when I get samples or deluxe samples, but that is the base of my skin care regimen. The only thing I need to replace at the moment is the eye cream. It's not working up to my expectations and pricing.


Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Your Skincare Regimen

@Candacebt. Well to make up for it, I think I probably have the shortest morning routine.


Also, that's my summer regimen. My winter regimen's a different set. =X

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Your Skincare Regimen

I have combination (in summer my tzone is oily and my cheeks are normal) acne-prone skin.


Right now my A.M routine is:

Murad Acne and Wrinkle Reducer - Not sure how much I like it.  Doesn't seem to do much.

Boscia Enlivening Amino Eye Treatment - Meh

Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer - Hate the smell.  Like it for my cheeks but too greasy for my t-zone right now.  Which is why I use...

Erno Laszlo Shake It Tinted Treatment - On my t-zone to absorb the extra moisture and add additional coverage on my acne scarred skin.

Kiehls Skin Tone Correcting BB Cream - Like it a lot!  Not sure if it's my favorite yet though.



Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil - I'm taking a break from my Clarisonic to see what my skin will do so I decided to give this a whirl.  I like it but I'm not wowed - the search for an HG cleanser will continue.

Boscia Enlivening Amino Eye Treatment

Boscia Oil Free Nightly Hydration - It's hydrating enough now but it won't be in winter when my skin is normal/dry.

PTR Retinol Fusion PM - I use this every few days.  Any more often and my forehead gets super flaky.  I haven't seen results in my forehead lines.  Need suggestions!


Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Your Skincare Regimen

I have the simplest skincare routine ever.


In the shower, sometimes morning sometimes night, I use purpose cleanser and once a week I substitute St. Ives cleanser for the purpose.  


If I showered at night, in the morning I use one of those face wipe thingies, i think the brand might be called basic.  


Then I use FAB facial radiance pads and 5 in 1 moisturizer.   Then makeup.


In the evening I use sephora makeup removing wipes.


Question: if I use makeup removing wipes do I need additional cleansing at night or am I all good?

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Your Skincare Regimen

@beautytester - I'm embarrassed to even say how low key my skincare routine is, lol. I love products (and I still have a ton), but getting to 15 is a stretch! I'd have to break it out into once a week and "bi-monthly" treatments.


But YES Rose Salve. ALWAYS.

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Your Skincare Regimen

Hmmm, 15 items eh. Let's see, not every day but every week:

1. Koh Gen Do cleansing water (makeup remover)

2. Boots no.7 conditioning mud mask (or Murad clarifying if I need something heavy duty)

3. Clinique exfoliating scrub

4. Fresh Rose mask

5. lip scrub



6. Origin Checks & Balances cleanser

7. Clinique toner 2

8. Ole Henriksen Truth Serum

9. Shiseido White Luscent eye cream

10. Clinique Moisture Surge

11. rose salve


hmmm, I'm a little short of 15 aren't I. That won't do. Occasionally...

12. Origins No Puffery eye mask for dry eyes

13. Origins Super Spot Remover for pimples

14. Caudalie Beauty Elixir if I'm feeling stuffy

15. Hand lotion.....ok now I'm stretching it 


That's my night routine. My day skincare routine = cleanse with water/towel + Bliss Fabulous spf 15 + Fresh Sugar lip balm spf 15. Done.

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Your Skincare Regimen

Woot! Pictures! I loooove First Aid Beauty. I use their 5 in 1 Eye Cream too! I need to try the Radiance Pads and the serum.

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Your Skincare Regimen


I have sensitive skin that is dry/combination.  I get hormonal breakouts along my jawline, but my skin gets dry too.  

Make Up Forever Sens'Eyes Eyes makeup remover and Sephora Waterproof eye makeup remover--the MUF is great for all over and I use the sephora on a qtip if I need to get tiny areas without precision.  

First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser--it is gentle, but effective. It removes my makeup and leave my face clean without over drying.  I alternate this with the First Aid Beauty Face Polish when I need more exfoliation.  

First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads-it gently exfoliates and tones. I feel like it helps my skin stay clear.

First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Serum--I LOVE this serum. It is lightweight. It has given my skin a glow and a clearer, smoother appearance. This is my HG.

 First Aid Beauty Daily Face Cream--moisturizes just enough but doesn't clog pores or feel greasy.

First Aid Beauty 5 in 1 Eye Cream--I think it works well and moisturizes without migrating into my eyes.

As you can tell I'm pretty brand loyal to First Aid Beauty, but I've found it's rare to find a brand where you like so many products.  I'm so glad I tried them.
