Question of the weekWhat's your current morning and evening skincare routine?

I try to keep my skincare routine as simple (and affordable) as possible, so it stays mostly the same. In the mornings, I rinse my face and apply a little German Nivea with the Odacité Camelina Chamomile serum/oil, or something with SPF if I’m leaving the house. In the evenings, I remove my eye makeup with Marcelle 3 in 1 Micellar Solution, wash my face with Marcelle Essentials Cleansing Milk, and moisturize with German Nivea blended with Odacité Pomegranate Rose Geranium (review), which I LOVE for dry skin. I don’t use a lot of masks or scrubs, but if I’m breaking out, I’ll also spot treat with Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion — that stuff is magic!!

My morning routine is pretty simple. I just wash my face and apply a moisturizer with an SPF. The evening routine is where it gets more complicated :) First, I remove my makeup with Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towlettes. Next, I use Garnier Cleansing Oil to remove the rest of makeup and my waterproof mascara. Then I cleanse my face using my Clarisonic Mia 2 brush with Nude Skincare Omega Cleansing Jelly or Vichy Normaderm Gel Cleanser. Next, I apply a toner- either Pixi Glow Tonic or Murad Hydrating Toner. Lastly, I apply a moisturizer- currently I am using Aveno Ultra-calming moisturizer and an undereye cream- Vichy Idealia Eyes.

AM: First I cleanse with the The Body Shop Aloe Gentle Facial Wash and exfoliate and tone with the Paula’s Choice Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution and the 5100 Skincare Glacier Moist Refresh spay. Then I apply my Caudalie Polyphenol C15 Serum followed by my Olaz Regenerist moisturizer, including around the eyes. And for sun protection I use the Glo-Therapeutics Oil-Free SPF 40+ sunscreen.
PM: Usually I double cleanse with a milk cleanser first – at the moment the Eucerin Gentle Cleansing Milk – and then a cleansing oil – at the moment the L’Occitane Shea Cleansing Oil, followed by exfoliating and toning with the same two products that I use in the morning. Then I apply Differen gel for my acne, followed by my Caudalie serum and my Clinique Super Rescue Antioxidant Night Moisturizer, eye area included again.
