As we have already established, I am a fan of a good skincare routine. I am equally a sucker for articles about what other people use to care for their skin, which is why I read every article I see about other peoples skincare regimes. I also read every “what’s in my purse” article, and I don’t know why, it’s like catnip.
Here is a post about my current morning routine. My Summer Morning Skincare Routine. My definition of a good skincare routine means it’s easy, effective, affordable and nothing smells weird. Let’s talk about end of the day skincare for a bit.
First off, not to get too personal, but one thing you need to know about me is that I am a night showerer. I would love to say I do it to wash the cares of the day away, but truth is I am fairly lazy and like to sleep as late as possible, so I ain’t got time for no morning showers. So whilst I am in my evening shower, I wash my face and use the following products.
I have two cleansers that I use interchangeably, Cetaphil and Cera Ve. These are two brands almost every dermatologist recommends, so I generally base my decision on the price variable. If it’s on sale, or I have a coupon, that’s the one I get. Just as an aside, I would also give a shout out to Noxema, the cleanser of my youth. If you have oilier skin, there is nothing nicer than the gentle tingle of the product in the bright blue jar.
After drying off, I use the same serum I use in the morning Buffet from The Ordinary line. This stuff is fantastic, and is about the most reasonably priced serum you will find out there.
Everyone needs a good eye cream, I alternate between Mario Badescu’s Glycolic Eye Cream in the warm months and their Dermonective Eye Cream in the cold months.
Seriously where are you going to find a Retinoid for $21? The Abnormal Beauty Company, that’s where. Crazy right, but it’s true and it works really well.
I found this face cream when we went to France and I fell in love. It’s kind of hard to find, but they have it on Amazon. It is a little pricey, but is a luxury I allow myself. This cream is light, smells really good and absorbs quickly into the skin. I truly love it.
The gold standard of hand creams is L’Occitane, I should know since I have tried everything on the market. I request this from my mom every Christmas. My favorite is the Vanilla, but it only comes in a small tube.
This is probably my favorite DoTerra product. Lord knows I have purchased enough of it. They have 3 flavors, original which is orange and peppermint, tropical and herbal. My favorite is tropical.
That’s it for my summer evening routine. I would love to hear about what products other people use and love.
Ciao for now,
