    my skin has always been very dry and after turning 26 I started getting pimples for the first time in my life! I ditched all of my old skin care products and went back to basics. I now use a vitamin c serum on my face in the morning and a b3 at night. I cannot tell you how incredible my skin feels and look

    its dewy, pimple free, all my little fine lines on my forehead and mouth have completely disappeared. Those are the only two things I will put on my face and I am absolutely OBSESSED!

    At night, I remove my makeup with innoxa micellar cleansing water, cleanse with a lush scrub, tone with the ageless natio toner and moisturise with a natio anti aging moisturiser.

    In the morning, I cleanse with a lush scrub, tone using the same toner and use a day moisturiser by natio that is SPF 30+ and then use my innoxa primed to begin my makeup routine.

    Holy cow, I don’t know how anyone has the time (or patience!) for 10-12 steps! I use Philosophy skincare and love it. Their cleanser removes eye makeup (without burning your eyes- mine are super sensitive!) so I found that takes out the step of using eye makeup remover. I just use their Renewed Hope in a Jar moisturizer after that, and that’s pretty much my daily routine. They have a scrub I use once a week as well which makes my face feel amazing! Also, if you want to splurge, I’ve been using the Foreo Luna with my cleanser and my skin has never felt so clean. Here’s the links to both if you want to check them out πŸ™‚




    Good luck in your search for your next skin care products! πŸ™‚

    I’m doing the K-Beauty routine and mine has 9 steps.  I removed the 10th step as it involves oil and I can’t have that around my lash extensions.

    Step 1 is a cleanser.  I’ve been using Noxema for over 20 years and it’s never failed me.  Next, I use a rose petal and witch hazel toner from Thayers followed by an essence lotion from Origins.  Up next is the ampoule from Scinic and then the stone crop serum from Eminence Organics.  Then the firm skin acai moisturizer and herbal eye contour cream both from Eminence Organics.

    I do the same routine at night except I switch out my moisturizer for a night cream.  I use the jasmine tangerine age-defying night cream from Eminence Organics.

    The next steps are the sheet masks and exfoliators which don’t need to be done every day.  I exfoliate and use sheet masks 2-3 times a week.  I’m using the Syn-Ake essence masks from MJ Care and blueberry soy exfoliating cleanser from Eminence Organics.  

    I also do charcoal face masks and a clarifying mask from Tata Harper.

    And damn…I realize that that sounds like so much but it really doesn’t take that long and the results are so worth it!!

    I’ll let you in on a little secret…collagen supplements to get beautiful skin from the inside out.  It’s not only beneficial for your face but also to the rest of your body.  Earlier today, my nail technician was commenting on how soft my skin was from just touching my arm. yell

    It depends on what type of skin you have to determine what you may need to add in. Do you have specific concerns?

    I remove my make-up (which I do not use daily) with jojoba oil. I put a teaspoon in my palms and rub them together and then gently rub the cosmetics off. I start briefly with my forehead and cheeks in order to not smear dark make-up across my face and then do the eyes and lips if necessary. This is then removed with a couple of cotton pads and I’m left with clean and beautifully clean and soft skin! I could then wash and use a moisturiser but 9/10 I don’t bother.

    Day to day I use a good face wash, serum for the eyes and skin, then moisturiser with either SPF included or added on top.

    olivebutton :  I use baby-soap&schampoo and my favorite skin/hair oil. I love multitasking products. I use a soft wash cloth with the soap for light peeling.

    Souzie :  okay so can you explain the 10 step skin care routine? I mean surely if you used 10 different products morning AND night it would be stripping your skin bare of natural oils? I looked it up online briefly, and the amount of products that seem to do the same thing make me think it would be a huge waste of money. Why not invest in a dual cleanser/exfoliator and good moisturiser? Do we really need serums and essences on top of it all? 

    I’m not mocking you for doing this btw, I’m genuinely confused and curious to know what all the fuss is about πŸ™‚

    I do OCM every second day. I apply the oil, massage and wipe off.

    Every morning I apply vitamin c serum and my face oil.

    My face feels much less dry now. I’m starting to see less redness but it hasn’t been very long yet.

    So I consider my skin combination but I easily get too oily. I use all the Simple brand products. 


    wash face with Simple moisturizing face wash

    use Simple toner

    use AcneFree Terminator 10 (I put a think layer over entire face I break out easily)

    use Simple replenishing rich moisturizer. I use a very small pea sized amount bc I will get too oily if I use a lot 



    remove eyeliner with generic eye makeup remover 

    wash face with Simple exfoliating wash


    acnefree terminator 10

    I have tons of skin allergies, so all I do is wash and use lotion as needed.

    My skin was always amazing until I turned 26, and then it went downhill. I struggled to find the right products, but this is what seems to be working for me now.



    – Rinse my face with bottled water and cotton rounds (I have hard water at home, so I’ve been trying to avoid using it on my skin).

    – Combine Drunk Elephant B-Hydra Gel and C-Firma vitamin c serum in my palms and spread over my face

    – Moisturize with Dr Jart Water Fuse Ultimate Hydro Gel

    – Sunscreen – I alternate what I use for sunscreen, but it’s an important step



    – Remove makeup with Fresh Seaberry cleansing oil

    – Depending on how much makeup I was wearing, I’ll sometimes do a follow-up wash, the fresh soy cleanser works well for this

    – Apply Farmacy sleep tight all over my face/neck

    – Eye cream: I’ve been using the one from Lush, but I’m sure there are better ones out there.



    – Exfoliate with the Peter Thomas Roth Firmx peeling gel. I was exfoliating every other night, but it was just too much for my skin. I think I could probably up this to twice a week though

    – I follow that up with the Peter Thomas Roth cucumber gel mask

    – Sometimes I do hydrating sheet masks
