It's been awhile since I wrote about my skincare routine. What about you? What are you currently using? The weather is a lot warmer now so naturally my skincare changed accordingly.
Cleansers and toner:
PM: First I use Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil which I am not too thrilled by (see why here) to take off my makeup, followed by Easeamine Cleanser and Easeamine Toner
AM: Murad T-Zone Pore Refining Gel, which doesn't work at all for me (see why here), and you can see I am almost done with it and it still doesn't work. I am just trying to use it up, and will switch to Peter Thomas Roth AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel afterwards, hopefully this works better in clearing up my blackheads.
PM: Murad T-Zone Pore Refining Gel on my t-zone and Murad Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum on my cheeks to lighten my freckles and acne spots. Not sure how well Murad Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum works yet, you can see I've only used about 1/5 of it - so far no noticeable results, will keep on using it and see.
AM: My all time favorite L'oreal UV Perfect Long Lasting UVA/UVB Protector SPF50 PA+++ (see why here) mixed with 1 drop of Xiang Xi Ren 香袭人 Rose Essential Oil.
AM: Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, which I've already written about back in 2010 (here), yes I went back to it since it is awesome :)
PM: Bare Escentuals RareMinerals Skin Revival Treatment at night over serum. I've actually had this for awhile but never used it because my skin is too dry to use this alone in the winter. Now that the weather is hot, my skin has become oilier so layering this over serum is enough. Like many others, using a powder as skincare is odd, I am not sure how well it works yet, but it definitely makes my skin look nice and healthy after putting it on.
PM: Kiehl's Overnight Biological Peel about 2-3 times a week. Yup I've already written about it here and I am still using it. One bottle lasts a long time as 1-2 pumps are enough to cover the entire face. In the winter I would use this under moisturizer but now that it's summer, I use this and only this at night. My main skincare concerns are 1) blackheads 2) freckles. Not sure how well this peel works against blackheads and freckles so we shall see.
