My Skin Care Routine

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10

1. Bioderma: Great for makeup mistakes or removing those mangy false eyelashes. I also use this for removing the remainder of my eye makeup that my cleansing oil misses. Great toner option also. This really is a 'jack of all trades' product.

2. FANCL Mild Cleansing Oil: I just recently got into cleansing oils. I use about a pump and a half on my dry face and massage into my skin and eye area. This helps breakdown the makeup and removes it from my face. Then, I add a bit of water and it changes the oily substance to a creamy liquid and everything begins to emulsify. This is the most gentle way I know to remove makeup. This cleansing oil is extremely hard to find but it is my favorite. :)

3. La Roche Posay Lipikar Syndet: I am no skincare expert, but I do know a good product when I see one. This is it, folks. This is originally marketed as a soap free body wash/cleanser. However, it is so gentle that I will never use another cleanser on my face again. This stuff is sooo good. And I love that it is fragrance-free. I really don't like when my facial cleansers have a scent. By the way, this is great for children with skin sensitivities to use as a body wash.

4. First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads: A gentle exfoliant, toner and peel all in one. Again, great for sensitive skin. Can you tell I love sensitive skin products?

5. Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Booster: A serum for use before moisturizing. The main ingredient in this product is Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid has the ability to hold 1000 times its weight in water so it acts like a magnet to anything that is applied on top of it, thus the water in your moisturizer will take longer to evaporate off the surface of the skin. Indeed Labs states that:
 "Over time, this serum increases skin’s hydration level and minimizes the need for frequent topical moisturizing.  This increase in moisture levels has been shown to increase skin elasticity and reduce surface roughness."
 Do I agree? YES. Go to Walgreen's and get some of this immediately.

6. First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream: I have searched for years for the perfect facial moisturizer. I use this moisturizer twice daily. It is very lightweight despite the fact that it is a cream. It is non greasy and is so good for sensitive skin. I would pay double the price for this stuff. That's how good it is.

7. Glam Glow Youth Mud Mask: I read tons of reviews on this baby and decided to give it a go one night. This stuff is so darn good. I use it at night and love how my skin feels the next morning. It is expensive but if you get it on amazon, you can save SO MUCH MONEY. Such a treat for tired skin.

8.  Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avacado: If you've been reading my blog for a while, I'm sorry you have to hear me talk about this product again but it is by far the best eye moisturizer on the market. It is so thick and just does the trick. (That rhymed.) There are also only three ingredients: Avocado, Beta-Carotene and Shea Butter. I love simple products.

9. Christian Dior Creme de Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm: This is such a ridiculous product. (Using Dior as a Lip Balm?!?) I would never have purchased this had I not had a gift card to Sephora but now that I have I'm mad because when it is out I'm going to want to repurchase it. I probably won't though. Blistex works just as great. This stuff is just luxurious.

10. Caudalie Beauty Elixir: Again, another ridiculous product but I have a sample that I have been loving so I thought I would throw it in this post. I like to spray this after I put my makeup on because I love the dewy effect it gives. It also smells like a spa. Nothing wrong with that.

You are probably thinking: "Why in the world does she use 10 products on her face? How does she have time for that?" My thoughts on this are if you spend 10-15 minutes getting ready and putting makeup on, you should spend just as much time removing it and caring for your skin. Your skin will thank you when you are older. What products do you use? What products can you not live without? I am always interested to see what works for others so please share!

Thanks for reading!
