..My Skin Care Routine

..My Skin Care Routine


Recently I've been on a product binge of sorts.  In the past couple months I've nailed down an anti-aging routine that I love, found my new favorite mascara, dabbled in the world of lux shampoo and added the Clarisonic to my morning and nightly routine.  I firmly believe that if you have beauty expectations for yourself (and everyone is different here obviously), you have to do your research and then invest.  Above I have laid out the products in my skincare routine that have won my heart and landed a permanent place in my medicine cabinet.  You can see my hair-care routine here.

Day: I  wash my face with the magnificently gentle Philosophy Purity soap, apply Genifique Eye, then I alternate using Genefique and Visionnaire syrums each day.

Night: I wash with Clinique bar soap (tried and true since 7th grade y'all - NOTHING makes my skin cleaner and clearer - I have tried using other products and paid the price) with the Clarisonic Mia 2 (I used to use it twice a day but quickly realized that once at night was much more beneficial for keeping your skins natural oils, I saw SUCH a difference - I dare you to stop using twice a day and see). I then apply my Clinique Acne Solutions moisturizer (because I'm that lucky adult that never grew out of zits) and finish with my Lancome Lift Multi-Action eye cream. 

I know it seems like a lot but if you're going to splurge on something shouldn't it be your money maker? I thought so.

  1. I totally splurge on skin care! I'd rather spend my money on quality skin care than try covering up "bad" skin with makeup. I recently tried the Genefique and the Visionnaire. They've had such awesome reviews, it was disappointing when they broke me out. BIG sad face :(

  4. I've recently tried a Lancome moisturizing primer and loved it! I need to save up before I buy more of their stuff, but so far so good!

  5. Thanks for sharing! I'm especially interested in all the nighttime products because I have acne issues as well. The Clarisonic is going to be my next big splurge, but that won't be for a couple months probably.

  6. Nice post. You are right, it is ok to splurge on your face. As long as the products are working for you, keep using them! It takes a long time to find the right skin care routine and have beautiful skin.

  9. Nice stuff. Have you ever tried an oil cleanser? They are really nice to clear the complexion and leave the face soft, smooth, and clean! I love using one in the morning to help have beautiful skin.
