What are you currently using for your skincare, either morning or night routine?

What is your skin type (dry, normal, oily, combo)? Do you have any other skin issues you are addressing (acne, wrinkles, dry patches, etc.)?

I have oily skin that has improved a lot since starting a good routine. I get redness on my nose and cheeks pretty constantly. I get occasional acne, but not severe breakouts anymore.

I only have a serious routine for nighttime.. currently:

(I'm trying to deal with my redness and some acne on my nose that is RELENTLESS)

Calmia Cleansing Oil Gel & Missha Creamy Green Tea Latte Cleansing Foam are my cleansers. I'm madly in love with my oil cleanser. That alone makes my skin SO soft!

Then, to business:

1. Secret Key Tea Tree Toner - I've been searching for tea tree products to help my troubled skin so I've been working them into my routine

2. Rooibos Gel Cream - came from a memebox, nothing special but I like it

3. Benton Snail Bee Essence - has been AMAZING for my redness!!! this is HG status worthy now that i've tried it

4. Centella Ampoule - I think I spelled that right.. it also came from a memebox. I use it because it is one of the few products I've seen actually state it helps redness and isn't just a brightening product

5. Benton Snail Bee Steam cream- this has really helped along with the essence! It feels weirdly heavy on my skin, like it takes a bit to sink in. My skin doesn't absorb quickly, but I'm used to that. I really love this product too!

6. Tea Tree Emulsion

7. Ciracle Red Spot Cream or Shara Shara Bee Tox Cream - both spot treatments I use interchangeable or sometimes both on my nose. The Ciracle has been fantastic about reducing redness! I just started the other so no good/bad thoughts yet.

I've been changing things around lately so this is my most current routine. I don't moisturize with anything else often unless I feel I need it.. which is rare, my skin is never dry. And moisturizers take a LONG time to skin in so I don't even bother if I'm going to bed soon.

I don't really have time in the morning (getting up a 5 yr old and out the door for 7.15am) so ill slap on some The Yeon Hallabong serum after I've had a shower on my face then add Iope air cushion to cover with the Riviscowe compact that was in one of the boxes to matt (otherwise it looks a bit shiny rather than "dewy"). I've the Snow White eye pencils so use the brown one and add some eye shadow (Guerlain as it has lots of colours and not just browns). Lippy is Erude House with some Revescen shimmery pink lip gloss to brighten it up a wee bit.

At night

Etude House cleansing oil as got sent something like 16 sample bottles of the stuff from Etude House and need to clear a space!

Tony Moly grapefruit foaming cleanser with a 4D Tosowoong brush (if I want a really good cleanse will do this step if not, just the REN)

Ren hot cloth cleanser as it smells gorgeous and my face always feels properly clean after using this

Milkydress blooming rose eye gel (which looks identical to the face gel I might add!)

Etude House ampoule with the moistful cream afterwards

Will also add the Pisteo ampoule thing just before bed.

If I'm being really good I'll put on a face mask or a sleeping mask.

Insobeau Z cream on my legs (as its past the sell by date and trying to get rid of it along with the AHC? Balm all in one that goes on knees and elbows.

Its pretty basic but I don't get the time for anything else! I use the Azulene gel for outbreaks as it seems to calm them down.

Oh - skin type is probably dry / sensitive.

For those who get zits and want to dry them up quickly, use the white of an egg, dab it on. It is colorless and will dry that pesky thing. Will revisit here again but I am off to feed and walk "Big-gums" our St. Bernard.

Oh, you guys. My routine is out of control. I just have so many dang products to go through! Anything with a * by it means it's a category that I change out a lot because I'm trying to go through as many of my deluxe/foil samples as I can. 

Skin type: Combination. A little oily in the t-zone but pretty normal on my cheeks.

AM

Cleanser: Elf Makeup Wipe

*Toner: Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner

Essence: The Skin House Pore Control Powder Serum

Eye Cream: Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream

*Moisturizer: Innisfree Bija Lotion

*Sunscreen: CNP Laboratory Tone-Up Protection Sun Cream

PM

Oil Cleanse: Banilla Co Cleanse It Zero

*Second Cleanser: Innisfree Jeju Foam Cleanser 

Exfoliator: Either Secret Nature Jeju Peeling Gel or Clean & Clear Aloe Scrub

Cleaner: CeraVe Foaming Cleanser if I feel there are leftovers from exfoliating

Mask: All kinds! Sheets, mud, yogurt, etc. Love 'em all!

*Toner: Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner

Booster: Maycoop Raw Sauce

*Treatment: SkinCeuticals B5 Gel

*Essence: Innisfree Jeju Essence

*Treatment: Estee Lauder Enlighten Serum

Snail: Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream

I also do a 25% Mandelic Acid Peel every 4 days. Once I'm done with my current bottle I'm moving on to a stronger acid. 

And this doesn't even touch the hair and body products that I'm trying to work my way through. Good thing I've cut down on sub boxes this year!

I have one - but I need some time to put it together!   Maybe this weekend, when I have a bit more time - between the snow and training at my job, it has been a rough week.

I forgot eye creams too! I'm using the chamois Acia snail eye cream and some Lancer brand from a U.S. sub box.

Is that Boots moisturizer the P&P Day Cream? Because I love that stuff! If my skin is ever having a dry day, that's the moisturizer I reach for.

And I have the Red Serum but haven't been able to work it into my routine quite yet. Looking so forward to it!

@@goldendarter - Ooh yes, I  think it's the same moisturiser. Mine has the SPF15 which is handy with the Retin-A I use. My foundation also includes sun screen, so I've not been adding that as on top of my skin care routine.

So far I've sampled 4 sachets of the Red Serum & hope the results will be just as good with the full size. I'd love to hear your thoughts too once you've started using it. I just have so many products to get through!  :lol:

@@biancardi,Did the HeartFace Ultra Pore Care Sleeping Pack make a difference on your pores? Mine are quite big compared to the young ladies who claim to have huge pores... but don't compared to mine lol. I'm interested in the best pore minimising products & Primers and would certainly value your recommendation. 

hey, I am probably a lot older than most of you!!  I need more - haha
@@biancardi Aw, I don't think age has is related with skin needing more products to be applied etc... I think it also has to do with genetics as my mum looks fab for her age (she's in her 80's), as she hardly has any wrinkles & has used Ponds cream for the majority of her life lol.
