My skin care routine…

IMG_5932

Believe it or not, I rather spend a ton of money on skin care than make up… I know I know, what kind of a lady am I? haha I barely wear any make up, in fact my day to day make up is only 2 products that all, so I try to focus and care for my skin a lot. Except for the past few weeks, I have been so off my skin care routine it’s so bad. I usually now will wash my face at night to get rid of all the dirty and junk and just moisturize and go to school and for mornings I will splash water on my face and again add SPF moisturizer and go on about my day. However, on the days that I’m really good, this is what my skin care would be like:

Morning:

  1. Cleanser:  Origins Checks and Balances frothy face wash. This is my absolute favorite face wash ever.
  2. Toner:  Origins United States balancing tonic. This really helps my skin clear up and get rid of acne.
  3. Serum: Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins mega-bright dark spot correcting serum. This serum is so expensive but my skin loves it!
  4. Eye cream: Murad Essential-C eye cream I just started using this a few months ago and let me tell you I am obsessed with it!
  5. Vitamin C Serum: Peter Thomas Roth Potent-C Vitamin C power Serum.  This serum is beyond expensive and I recently got it so I can’t really say how I feel about it yet.
  6. Moisturizer/SPF: Origins A Perfect Work SPF 40 Age-Defense Moisturizer with White Tea.  One of my favorite SPF moisturizers.

Night: 

  1. Cleanser:  Origins Checks and Balances frothy face wash.
  2. Exfoliating: Fresh Sugar strawberry exfoliating face wash. 
  3. Toner:  Origins United States balancing tonic.
  4. Serum: Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins mega-bright dark spot correcting serum.
  5. Eye Cream: Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye cream 
  6. Face Oil: Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate 
  7. Moisturizer: Origins Plantscription Youth-Renewing Power Night cream. 

I told you, I was not kidding about spending my money more on skin care, I use kinda pricey products but only because it works on my skin. I have tried some drug stored ones or cheaper ones and my skin just doesn’t take it too well; so I stick to these.

Day 3: Skin Care Routine!

I have been so into skin care lately and I absolutely love it. I have been trying different products to see what works with my skin the best and so far I have found these products the best so far. I use a lot of origins products as you can see and no it is not sponsored…I wish! I just love their products so so much!!!

My morning routine:

  • I start off by rinsing my face with just some warm water then I clean my face using the Origins United state balancing tonic and a cotton pads. I love this product…it literally helps get rid of so much dirt in your skin that regular cleanser can’t get rid of.
  • I usually apple the murad essential c eye cream along with the origins mega bright eye cream almost every morning, if not both then just one of them for the day.
  • I then use the origins mega bright serum. I swear this products reduces my redness and the dark spots on my face so much.
  • Lastly I will use my once again origins a perfect world moisturizer for my entire face along with my neck.

My night time routine:

  • I start off by using my origins checks and balance face wash which I forgot to include in the photo (oops) but oh my goodness I am obsessed with this face wash it is by far my absolute favorite one. I have maybe purchased this one over 8 times already since I got introduced to it this past year; I even got my husband to use it too.
  • I then use my balancing Tonic toner to make sure I get all the dirt of my face.
  • I also use two eye creams almost every night which is the mega bright eye cream along with the Kiehl’s midnight recovery eye cream. I don’t think I will repurchase this one though once I’m done with it; I think I will just stick to my origins and my murad eye creams for morning and night.
  • At nights I will use two serums as well so I will start off with my mega bright serum then use my Estee Lauder Advanced night repair serum all over my face.
  • Lastly, I will use my origins plantscription night cream for my entire face.
  • Sometimes at nights I will even do an overnight mask using my origins intensive overnight hydrating mask… I love love love this mask!!!

I know these products are kinda pricey but I use to be someone who never took good care of her skin and when I did, I used cheap products that just made me break out so I decided to invest a little more in my skin care and I absolutely love it!!

I would love to know what your skin care routine is and what your favorite products are…
