My Current Morning Skincare Routine

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know I’m a skincare junkie. I love trying new products, seeing what works for my skin, and what doesn’t. My current morning skincare routine is a mixture of tried and true anti-acne and hydration products.

Cleanse

Around Christmastime my skin had a bit of a freak-out. Probably all the rich food. Since then I’ve been using the It Cosmetics Confidence in a Cleanser, the Ole Henriksen Balance Force Oil Control Toner, and Radha tea tree oil as a part of my morning skincare routine. These products combined have helped my skin settle down. The It Cosmetics cleanser gives more a deep cleanse then the cleanser I was using before, but doesn’t strip my skin. The toner by Ole Henriksen contains witch hazel and a couple of acids to help gently exfoliate the skin. And the tea tree oil really helps combat acne outbreaks.

Moisturize

For hydration, I’ve been using some new and old products. I’m a big fan of The Ordinary Hylaronic acid serum, and wanted to try their “Buffet” serum. It does a great job, just like the Hylaronic serum, though it costs more, and if I’m being honest, I can’t tell the difference between the two! I finally used up my First Aid Beauty Moisturizer (6oz!), so I switched to the Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream. The smell of this cream is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! The loveliest, real rosy smell ever. The texture is thick and rich. I don’t need to use much of this cream. Next is the Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Intensive Eye Contour Cream. Wow that’s a mouthful. This eye cream is so rich and thick. In fact, if you have oily under eyes (lucky!) it might be too rich. Thankfully, I don’t, and this eye cream has really helped hydrate my under eyes. And does the Carmex lip balm need an introduction?
