Hi guys! I am by no means a skincare expert, but today I thought I would share with you the routine that seems to work for my face. I have fairly oily skin so I tend to go for daytime products that are made for my skin type. Since I’m oily, I don’t want to use products that may contribute to my oiliness under my makeup. I’m less fussy at night since I know I’m going to just sleep and then wash off the products in the morning. I’m going to break down my skincare products into three categories, face washes, makeup removers and moisturizers.
On most days I use the Spectro Cleanser in the Blemish-Prone Skin formula for both morning and night. I don’t get a lot of blemishes these days but since I do have oily skin I use this formula and love it. Once or twice a week, I use the Aveeno Skin Brightening Daily Scrub either in the morning or at night in place of the Spectro Cleanser to give my skin a gentle exfoliation. It really helps keep the few dry patches that I get at bay and keeps my pores nice and clean.
When I take off my makeup at night I first use the Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Make-Up Remover. This product practically melts all of my eye makeup, including stubborn mascara, in seconds! A little goes a long way so this bottle has lasted me quite awhile. For the rest of my face I use Neutrogena All-in-One Makeup Removing Cleansing Lotion. It also quickly removes my makeup. I could use it for my eyes too, but I found it wasn’t as effective for eye makeup.
Morning: After I wash my face I use the Olay All Day Moisturizer for Combination/Oily skin. This moisturizer has always been a favourite of mine. It absorbs quickly so it doesn’t leave my face feeling oily and it has a little bit of SPF (15). I then use the Garnier Ultra-Lift Anti-Wrinkle Firming Eye Cream under my eyes to help with the fine lines I have under my eyes and to slow down future lines.
Night: After I wash my face and remove my makeup, I apply the Garnier Ultra-Life Anti-Wrinkle Firming Night Cream to my face and neck. I feel like I’ve seen an improvement with adding this to my routine. I’m fairly young so the anti-aging products are more proactive than reactive. I follow this up with another application of the Garnier Ultra-Life Anti-Wrinkle Firming Eye Cream (that’s a mouthful to say!).
The bonus for all of these products is that they are all drugstore so they are all budget friendly! The one thing I do want to add to my routine is a toner… Does anyone have any recommendations?
