Ever wanted to know what skincare products a beauty blogger like myself actually uses every day?
While I have to test and use a multitude of products for what I do, I have some tried and true products that I never waiver from, and of course, new beauty discoveries that I add into my regimen when I see great results. Below is an example of a typical day's worth of products I use.
Overall, I have combination skin on my face, slightly dry skin on my body, and good skin tone naturally. I am prone towards hyperpigmentation so I always gravitate towards products which brighten, even skin tone and address dullness.
Here we go! Enjoy, and let me know if any of these are your favorites too...
In the morning I LOVE a great smelling body wash that gives me a sensory experience and wakes me up at the same time. I love Molton Brown Re-Charge Black Pepper bodywash and the Dove Go Fresh Revive Body Wash. Post shower I use Palmers EvenTone Body Milk or Nivea Express Hydration Daily Lotion.
I love my Olay Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System and use this almost every morning with Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel or DDF Advanced Micro-Exfoliation Cleanser.
2x week I use the DDF Revolve 400x Micro-Polishing System with their polishing crystals.
After cleansing I use Dr. LeWinn by Kinerase Skin Tone Perfecting Serum then the Kate Sommerville Daily Discoloration Perfector or Clarins Bright Plus HP Intensive Brightening Smoothing Serum, which is a bit more of a lotion consistency. Update: I also alternate this routine with one of my new favorites, Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Extra Strength Alpha Beta Peel and use it every morning after cleansing.
For eye care I love Dermalogica AGE Smart - Age Reversal Eye Complex or Avon ANEW REVERSALIST Illuminating Eye System. For sunscreen I love Clarins UV Plus HP Day Screen High Protection SPF 40
After a long day it's usually wipes for the face. I love Olay 2-in1 Daily Facial Cloths to use with water and for pre-moistened wipes I love Josie Maran Bear Naked Wipes.
If I have heavy duty or long wearing makeup to get rid of, I always reach for Shu Uemura Cleansing Beauty Oil or my CHANEL Precision Demaquillant Yeux Intense Gentle Biphase Eye Makeup.
I use the Dr. LeWinn by Kinerase Skin Tone Perfecting Serum, a layer of Kate Sommerville Overnight Discoloration Perfector and Kate Sommerville Spot Reducing Concentrate or Clarins On-The-Spot Brightening Corrector as needed, and finish off with Creme de la Mer Moisturizing Cream or my new favorite, Immunocologie Treatment Creme VenoMAX and Dermalogica AGE Smart - Age Reversal Eye Complex.
If I have an occasional breakout, there's nothing better than Mario Badescu's drying lotion applied overnight. - RLB
