Time for another round of The Skincare Diaries!!! Please welcome Joyce from Bronzer Bunny!!! She's the first blogger I've ever met in person, and we've spent many many many hours talking about beauty, wish lists and shopping lists! She makes me laugh with her quips and I love that we can commiserate and celebrate over beauty and our blogging adventures. I'm so happy we became friends :-)
Last year, Gummy asked me to write a post about my skincare routine. I was so excited, yet at the same time, couldn't get a post together to save my life. Well, I wrote one, but my skin and my routine was just all over the place and I just couldn’t bite the bullet and share a post.
I finally managed to settle into a pretty steady routine, and a year later, I'm ready to talk about skincare!
If I'm wearing makeup, I always remove it with Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water. Then I'll go ahead and cleanse - my cleanser of the moment is Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Shea Butter, which is a nice creamy cleanser that still leaves my skin feeling clean. My pick for exfoliation this season is the Tatcha Polished Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder, though I've also been liking Goldfaden MD Doctor Scrub when I like the normal exfoliating feel.
After cleansing, I slather on African Botanics Pure Marula Oil and Dr Ci:Labo Aqua-Collagen-Gel Super Moisture EX. Sometimes, I'll use lush celestial instead - just whichever I'm in the mood for!
Most of the time, especially in the mornings, that’s about all I do for my skincare routine. However, I do use a few other products. I haven't really been using my normal stash of masks lately, but I've been depending on some hydration masks from Boscia and Rodial. I've had to reach for Murad Acne Spot Treatment quite a bit these last few months (ugh) and I love the African Botanics Intense Skin Repair Balm for any dry or itchy spots.
Sadly, I haven't really gotten into the habit of eye cream, so someone PLEASE help me do so lol. I have some nice eye cream samples to use up, not to mention I'm sure my eyes will appreciate it!
So that's it! I like to keep my routine quick and easy. :) Thank you Gummy for letting me share my current skincare routine!
