I love skincare so very much. It’s one of my favorite parts of the day. It’s nice to have a little me time in the evening to pamper myself and relax. Here are the products that I’m currently using. If you want some useful skincare tips, check out my A.M. routine.
I start by using Garnier SkinActive: Micellar Cleansing Water to remove the first layer of makeup. I don’t do any harsh rubbing. What comes off is what comes off. I do this to make it easier for when I use my cleanser. I like this micellar water because it removes a lot of makeup for how gently I rub.
Next, I move on to cleansing my face. I use the Cleansing Story: Snail Essential Deep Cleanser. The cleanser works up into a gentle foam that washes all of my remaining makeup away. This cleanser is not drying and is easy to rinse off.
For toner, I like Humphreys: Witch Hazel. It’s an astringent, so it gets any leftover dirt and makeup. Although this witch hazel is an astringent, it’s not drying and is very soothing to the skin. It’s also excellent at helping to clear up random pimples. I apply the toner with my favorite cotton pads.
Yes, I use two toners. The Aloe BHA Skin Toner by Benton soothes my skin while nourishing it. It contains ingredients like BHA and snail secretions to help keep breakouts at a minimum. This toner also adds a little moisture to my skin. I pat this into my skin with one of the cotton pads I mention above.
For a stronger burst of moisture, I spray Pearlessence: Rose Water onto my face and neck. I try to spray on an even layer. Then I gently tap the water into my skin using my fingers.
As for serum, I’m using The Herbiarie: Ceramide Priming Face Serum. I love the texture of this serum. It absorbs right into the skin and doesn’t feel sticky. I firmly press the serum into my skin with my hands.
For the next step, I evenly smooth the moisturizer over my face. Then I also press it in. My longtime favorite evening moisturizer is Garnier’s Moisture Rescue Gel-Cream. This gel moisturizer isn’t sticky and leaves my skin feeling hydrated until morning.
I naturally have darker skin around my eyes, so a brightening eye cream is a must. I use ELF’s Illuminating Eye Cream. A little of this goes a long way. I was shocked by the results considering the price point. I tap this onto my under eye using my middle finger in an outward motion.
