I love when bloggers and vloggers share their skincare routines with the world, so I thought it’d be fun to share my current morning skincare routine before I apply any makeup.I start by washing my face with the Jurlique Soothing Foaming Cleanser (available here and here). This is like a non-budget friendly Cetaphil and aims to help sensitive skin and people prone to redness like me. I really love how this gentle cleanser works on my skin. It leaves my skin clean and soft. I’ve been using the same bottle since the beginning of May, so you definitely get months of use out of it.
Once my skin is dry, I apply a pump of the REN Anti-Redness Serum (available here, here, here, and here). You can read more about my experience with this serum here, but overall it helps decrease my skin’s reactive redness habits throughout the day which is a winner in my book. It doesn’t eliminate it all together, but definitely helps a lot. While this serum sets into my skin, I carefully apply the Andalou Natural Eye Gel to my eye area (available here, here, and here). This comes with a roller ball, so it can take some finicking with the tube to get the product to come out. I’m not 100% in love with this product because I don’t feel like it does much, but I’m just using up the tube while I save money for some day time eye creams I really want. It does leave my eyes moisturized enough though, which is what really matters. Once this is rolled on, I gently tap any excess into the eye area with my finger and then rinse my hands with cold water and dry them off.
If my face serum is fully settled in, I’ll start to apply about three pumps of the Burt’s Bees Face Moisturizer with SPF 30 to my face (available here, here and here – I usually buy it in person at CVS or Target). Sometimes I will apply it to my neck and decolletage too. This seems to do the job for me and can be layered under my makeup without peeling.
After this is all done, I go do my thang like get dressed and eat breakfast. Then, I’ll pat three drops of the Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate to my face and decolletage (available here, here, and here). This is a luxuriously refreshing oil to apply to your face and I absolutely LOVE it. It’s definitely a must for any beauty junkie.
The finished product below after all of that. Now my skin is ready for makeup if I choose to wear it. 🙂
I know this sounds like a lot of lotions, potions, and serums. I think it is, but skincare is very important and I do notice a difference from each product I’m using.
