My Skincare Routine!


Hey everyone! Today I'll be sharing my skincare routine, which is the second topic for the 2014 Blogger Challenge. I don't really have a strict skincare routine. I'm yet to find my holy grail products that does wonders to my skin. If I run out of a certain product, I'd usually just purchase something else. So, my skincare routine changes quite frequently. Anyhow, this is my current skincare routine and products that I've been using. 

♥Wakey wakey! MORNING TIME♥

Left to right : ORGANI Organic Firming Serum, NEUTROGENA Deep Clean Invigorating Foaming Scrub, AVEENO Positively Radiant Daily Moisturiser, CLINIQUE Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion

First thing I do after I've brushed my teeth, is splash some cold water on my face. This is not only going to wake me right up but also helps with detoxified my skin. After that, I use the foaming scrub to exfoliate my skin. Exfoliating helps with getting rid of all the dead skin cells. I like this product because the micro beads helps massage my face and regulate blood circulation. It has a slight tingling cool feeling which I like and makes me think that the product is working on my skin. Then, I dry my face and put on the serum. Not many people do this step, especially if you're young. It doesn't hurt to start early. Serum has so many benefits such as, restoring moisture and tightening up your pores. After applying the serum, it's time to moisturise! I switch between the Clinique and Aveeno moisturiser, depending what i'm doing that day. The Clinique moisturiser doesn't have any SPF in it, so if I'm going to be outdoor for majority of the day, I'd use the Aveeno daily moisturiser. 

♥Nighty NIGHT!♥


After a day of wearing makeup [if i'm wearing makeup on the day], I will first use a facial wipes. This will help get rid of the oil, dirt and makeup off my face, before I give my face a good clean. 

Olay Regenerist Cleansing System
I'd use my Olay Regenerist Cleansing System 2-3 times a week [see my review HERE], when I'm in the shower. It's great to completely cleanse my face. On those days that I don't use the cleansing system, I'd just use the Olay cream cleanser on its own.

Skin care, beauty
Left to Right : ORGANI Organic Firming Serum, BIODERMA Crealine H2O, NEUTROGENA Oil- Free Eye Makeup Remover, NIVEA Pure and Natural Night Cream, GANIER Eye Cream

For the night time, I use the serum again then I put the Bioderma on a cotton pad and swipe it all over onto my face. I've only recently bought this and I totally understand why people raved on and on about this baby. You will be surprise to see what is still left on my skin after I've cleanse my face [two thumbs up for this miracle product]! I then use the Neutrogena eye makeup remove which does an amazing job with removing my waterproof mascara. After all that is done, I apply the Nivea night cream onto my skin. This stuff smells really nice and keep my face moisturized while I sleep like a sleeping beauty  pig. Last but not least, I use an eye cream to treat my designer bags A.K.A my panda eyes. 

The Body Shop Body Butter, Sorbelene Cream
As for my body, I swear by the Redwin Sorbolene Moisturiser. I've use this ever since I was in primary school. It does an amazing job at keeping my skin hydrated and silky smooth. This product is great for people that have sensitive skin and it is fragrance free as well. So, if i'm going out somewhere and I want to smell extra appealing, I slap on the Body Shop Mango body butter onto my body. It smells so divine! I love mango O so much and I like to smell like it too. It's the perfect scent for this summer. 

Face Mask
Once a week, I like to pamper myself. One of the things I do is put a face mask on while relaxing. Sheet masks are super convenient and is mess free. I've been loving the Skinvitals H-Revive Mask. After using it, I've noticed that my skin is super hydrated and leave my skin looking glowy. That, I like.☺

Let me know what your holy grail skincare products are. I'd love to know and try out new products!

  2. You have a great routine! Just always use sunscreen on your face each morning. Sun damage you aren't even aware of starts at a young age. And 20, 30 years later, it makes itself known. You're doing great love. And you have gorgeous skin! Keep it that way with sunscreen! SPF50 minimum for your face :)

  4. Sounds like a good routine! I am all about moisturizers but I need to find a good make-up remover that's not to harsh on your skin or around your eyes… I might try yours!
    Thanks!

    1. I do recommend the Neutrogena makeup remover. It's my second bottle and does a great job at removing eye-makeup, especially waterproof mascara. Bioderma is an amazing product also to remove make up. :)

  6. Sounds like some good products. Have you been using Bioderma for very long? Do you think it is worth the higher price tag? :)

    1. No, I haven't been using Bioderma for very long..maybe been using it for a month. I've been loving it, but I've also heard that the Loreal Micellar Solution is a great dupe for the Bioderma. I'll need to try it out though and find out. Hopefully, it will be a great dupe for it cause this smaller bottle cost me $20AUD and the full size bottle would have cost me $50. Super expensive for a drugstore product! :/

    1. I agree! :) I'm actually the opposite haha, I probably prefer to use the Clinique moisturiser during winter more than summer. I'm looking forward to reading your post too :) x

  9. Great routine but I wouldn't use wipes so often, having the Bioderma would remove your make up being more gentle to your skin but I really can't be sure as I haven't tried it out yet. I use the L'Óreal dupe and it works just fine - mainly because it's so much cheaper, ha ha ha ;)

    1. Thanks for the heads up :) I just want to make sure nothing is left on my skin and it's squeaky clean haha. I'll have to try out the Loreal dupe, I've heard great things about it.
