April Fools! Skin care is no joke! Here is my first real day routine, and it has slightly more steps than the night one. (Sidenote: I did not put on makeup today, as I knew today was the day I would exploring and working on my blog).
Here is what I have: Cleanser, toner, serum, eye cream, moisturizer, sunscreen, and two bonus items! It looks kinda intimidating….. But on I go!
Step one: Cleanser– I used the same cleanser as the from the night before (So no pic). So my opinion is still the same for it. I love it! I can’t get over how smooth my skin feels after using it.
Step two: toner
Pearlessence Aloe and Green Tea Hydrating Face mist. I used it as a toner, as it says in the bottle: “use after cleanser.” (That is a rough quote). I love the smell of it (I feel like I am going to be writing about smells a lot form now on). The scent is very present but now powerful, and two sprays covers whole face. Dries quickly.
Sidenote: this came in a gift set, and so I do not know what the actual size of a regular bottle is. Dries quickly.
BONUS ITEM #1
Burt’s Bee Intense Hydration Nourishing Facial Water with Clary Sage. Used specifically after cleansing and toning. Barely has a scent, and the applicator allows for small drops. Perfect for better control on how much you want to use. Lightly soaked into a cotton pad and padded face (not rub). The speed of drying depends on exactly how hard you are pressing the pad on your face.
Step three: Serum
The Better Skin Co. Super H Serum. Can be used as either a substitute for moisturizer or with. Smells strangely like candy, but I don’t hate it. Applicator is easy to use and lets out small drops. Much better than the eye cream from the 3/31 night routine.
Feels thick when going on, but then dries smooth! Face feels fantastic, and I can see why you would not have to use moisturizer.
Step four: eye cream
I bought this a week ago, before getting serious about the blog. However, I did also buy this from TJ Maxx. Dirty Works Eye Cream, and the same people who made the cream cleanser I am using for this routine.
has a baby powder scent, but is weak. Spreads even on eye and you only needs a small amount. Feels soothing on eyes.
Step five: moisturizer (I did not find many moistuirzers at TJ Maxx, so I am using the one I have been using for the past month)
Pacifica Crystal Youth Gem Infused Face Lotion. It really does smell like watermelon….. AND I AM ALL FOR IT!
Have to apply a little thick to get all over face, but it feels great on skin.
Step six: Sunscreen
CeraVe Sunscreen spf 50. This brand was specifically recommended for those with oily skin. Feels like lotion and blends well. I only needed a little, and after blending there was no smell. No greasy feeling that you usually get with other sunscreens.
Bonus item #2
Energizing Vitamin C face mist. Can be used throughout the day, and you can spray it under or over makeup. (I will have to try that out in the future). Obviously, it smells like citrus (duh). Smells strong in bottle, but not so badly when sprayed on face. (I still would make sure your eyes were closed!).
