MY SKINCARE ROUTINE | SKINCARE FAVORITES

Sunday, January 17, 2016


Here is a walkthrough of all the products I use on my face, both in the morning and at night time, to keep my skin as clear and hydrated as possible.

MORNING ROUTINE

Water
Every morning before I start with anything, I splash my skin with cold water, both to wake up, but also to get any eye boogers out, since I don't use a face wash in the morning.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water
Instead of using a face wash, I use micellar water, which is a very gentle cleansing water, that removes oil and makeup from the skin, without irritating the skin. I have very sensitive skin, therefore this product works great for me.

Melvita Rose Water
To get some moisture into my skin before applying anything else, I spray my face with this rose water, that calms and hydrates my skin.

Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution
Moving on to my morning serum, which helps to clear up my acne scars and hyperpigmentation. Generally this serum helps to even out my skintone, so it looks smooth and clear.

Derma V10 Eye Roll On
To hydrate and prevent wrinkles around my eyes, I use this roll on eye gel. It's fast, easy and absorbs into my skin quickly, which I like.

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream
Lastly before I'm ready to start the day, I apply my moisturiser. This one has the perfect amount of hydration for my oily skin and doesn't leave my skin sticky all day, nor dry. It's gentle and doesn't have a strong smell. 

NIGHT TIME ROUTINE

The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Oil
After a long day of wearing makeup or not, my skin needs a good cleansing, to get whatever is on my face off. I either use this cleansing oil, that melts mascara and all makeup off soo easily. Then wipe it away with a damp cloth, or...

The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter
This cleansing balm. The two products does the same thing just as well. But this product feels a bit more luxurious. After massaging this product into my face and making sure it has melted all off whatever is on my face off, I wipe the it of with a damp cloth.

First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser
I like double cleansing and that's what skin professionals recommend to do too. So to make sure all the oil from the previous product is off, I go in with this cleanser that foams up when you mix it with water. I rub it all over my face, either with my fingers or with a face sponge, to exfoliate the skin at the same time. Then I splash my face with water until the product is all off.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water
To tone my skin and bring its pH balance back to normal I use the same cleansing water from the morning.

Melvita Rose Water
I use this again to hydrate my skin before applying any other products.

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate
Moving on to my night time serum or should I say oil. This AMAZINGLY rich, oily serum, has to be the glory of my skincare. I massage this oil all over my face and let it absorb into my skin overnight and when I wake up in the morning, my skin feels so hydrated and soft.

Derma V10 Eye Roll On
Again I use the same eye gel. I think, the simpler the skincare the better. Therefore repeat products from the morning, at night time.

Kiehl's Skin Rescuer
This is a new product to my routine, that I use to moisturise my skin at night. It's a bit more rich than the one I use in the morning and therefore I feel like it works great at night time.

Clindoxyl Gel
If I have any breakouts on my skin, I use this gel my dermatologist prescribed to me, to dry out and calm down my acne.

That's basically my routine! On weekends I like to treat my skin a bit more, if I feel like it needs it. I use these three masks.

MASKS

Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque
This mask is for whenever my skin has a lot of breakouts and acne. I leave it on for 30 minutes and it helps to calm down the skin.

Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask
This mask is for whenever I have blackheads. I leave it on for 30 minutes and it helps to draw out oils and dirt from your pores.

Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask
This mask is for whenever my skin feel dry. I leave it on for 15 minutes and it helps to rehydrate my skin

SKINCARE WISHLIST




Origins Out of Trouble 10 Minute Mask Rescue Problem Skin
Since my mint julep mask is getting old, I need a new that can also clear my skin, whenever I have breakouts. I have heard that this mask does wonders!

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Oatmeal Mask
This mask is apparently great at hydrating your skin. And oatmeal is very calming for the skin, so I would like to give this mask a try.

AvĂ©ne Cleanance Matifying Emulsion 
I have used this moisturiser before and I really enjoyed using it. It seems to help keep my skin free from breakouts.

MV Organics Rose Soothing & Protective Moisturiser
Estee Lalonde keeps talking about this product and generally this line of skincare. She says it's the reason why her skin is clear and acne free. That sounds pretty amazing, these products are just REALLY expensive, but I would like to try this sometime.
