Happy “skincare Sunday” everyone!
To be honest, only in the last few months has my Pm skincare routine really developed.
Usually, I would just use three or four products from the same line (Sukin or Neutrogena mostly) and call it a night (literally!)
But since joining the beauty community, I’ve discovered some really cool brands and learnt a lot about skincare.
However, this skincare routine is form last month and has had a bit of a shake up since I originally took the photo (my content is so behind guys ah life!).
Nonetheless, I really enjoyed this combo of products and hope you enjoy the read.
What’s your PM skincare routine like? A few steps, or a lot? 🙊
The Inkey List Salicylic Acid Cleanser / here
Before I used this cleanser, I always had a ‘tight’ feeling after I washed my face. But I thought that meant it was clean. I’ve since learnt that (thanks to You Beauty), I actually had a damaged skin barrier. I remember the exact episode, but you can read more about it here. Now, my skin truly feels clean but without the tight, uncomfortable sensation. And a little goes a long way! I’ve tried using both balm and oil cleansers in the past but really dislike them. Gel all the way! (gifted)
White Glo Coconut Oil Shine Toothpaste / here
Toothpaste and handcream have been my best beauty discoveries of the year… ha! I love most coconut-scented things so this was right up my alley. It doesn’t leave you with a minty taste of traditional toothpaste but I’ve enjoyed adding it to my night time routine for something different. (gifted)
L’Oreal Laser Renew Glycolic Peel Pads / here
I only use these once a week, and they are just another example of ‘shit I bought for literally no reason’. I mean, they’re nice. But they’re expensive and I don’t really have a place for them in my routine.
Avene Thermal Water / here
No explanation needed. ILY.
The Inkey List Caffeine Eye Cream / here
I thought ‘I’m young I don’t need eye cream’ but lol jokes actually I do. A couple of late nights had me with heavy dark bags under my eyes, so I started using this eye cream more consistently. I noticed SUCH a difference. I was also scared because I have sensitive eyes, but this stuff is super gentle. Really impressed. (gifted)
Derma E Vitamin C Serum / here
Vit C is an ingredient I honestly don’t know much about and I only use this because it was gifted to me in a Bella Box and I was participating in #SeptemberSamples. It’s nice, but I am using so many new products on my face that I can’t say if this product alone has got my skin to it’s good place right now. I don’t think I’d repurchase this one, however I would like to discover the brand a bit more. (gifted)
Good Molecules Discoloration Serum / here
Again, because I am using so many new products it is hard to say which one is making a difference. But! This stuff feels super duper hydrating above all else and my skin does have a more even complexion since I’ve stuck to this routine. One particular night when I got home late and tired and other things (ahem), all I did to my face was remove my makeup, put on the Inkey eye cream and this serum, and went to bed. My skin usually freaksssss out after I do a full face of makeup, but I woke up the next day with perfectly normal skin. Therefore, I owe many thanks to this serum. You can only get Good Molecules via Beauty Lish in Aus but even still it is affordable. (gifted)
Sukin Hydration Elixir / here
This was recommended by someone in my early days on IG and I was intrigued because it is part of their ‘ageless’ range. But as you (and I) are probably learning, no age label will stop me from using skincare lol. This oil is pretty thick and you feel it on your face… as in, it takes a bit to soak in. At the same time I bought this, I bought the Skin reship oil as well. But I do have somewhat acne prone skin and I was too scared to use it, so gave it to a friend. The elixir has rosehip, but towards the middle of the ingredient list so it makes me feel better about using it. It has a ‘botanical’ smell and it’s nice- doesn’t clog my pores or anything wild. I will use it until finished but then move on I think. Although, I am impressed by the quality of the product considering the price!
Beaute Pacific Super Fruit Night Cream / here
I didn’t know night cream could be so good. This stuff is thick and delightful and a little bit truly goes a long way (if that helps justify the price tag!). The scent isn’t strong nor lovely but fine enough. Agh, it’s truly heaven. (gifted)
Laolips Coconutter Ointment / here
Lip balm for life… this is one of many on my bedside table but I was using this religiously in the cooler months.
Burt’s Bees Cuticle Cream / here
I got this in a gift set in a Christmas sale… I tell you this because yeah it’s nice and it works but I wouldn’t pay $15 for it. Just some food for thought. It smells delish though.
Du’it Tough Hands For Her / here
My holy grail hand cream… it is actually that good. Who knew I would care about hand cream but I actually love this as the final step in my skincare routine. (gifted)
