current skincare routine

This is my current skincare routine, as so graciously highlighted by the title. I don’t change my product selection often, but I made a Glossier purchase last month and a few of those items have crept into my everyday routine. I’m not particularly good at masking, either (though I did subscribe to a Korean sheet mask box and the first one is coming in sometime next week!!). For reference, I have super dry skin that’s just a tad oily on the nose. Sometimes it flakes around my t-zone in the winter, but overall it’s not problematic or acne-prone.

Glossier Milky Jelly cleanser

I wear little to no makeup daily (my Instagram suggests otherwise – but I usually do all of that on the weekends and post them throughout the week) so I don’t find myself needing a tough cleanser. The Milky Jelly cleanser is creamy and really gentle on the skin. It’s the least drying cleanser I’ve tried – it’s even less drying compared to using just water! But it might be because it leaves a sort of film on the skin? It doesn’t feel weird or anything (it actually feels a bit luxurious) and it hasn’t caused any problems.

Dr. Brandt PoreDermabrasion*

I don’t have big or problematic pores, but I like how this makes my skin feel. This exfoliator has superfine particles so it exfoliates gently, and I think it’s also a chemical exfoliant as well since you’re supposed to leave it on for a minute before rinsing. I use it once or twice a week, and I always notice that the products I put on afterwards sink in really well by next morning.

When it comes to serums… I never feel a difference in my skin. I’m sure it’s doing something good for it, but I just personally never feel a difference. I still use them religiously, though! But just take note that I can’t offer any insight on how they actually work for me.

Glossier Super Bounce serum

Cindy actually got me to buy this since she’s always raving about the Glossier serums on her Instagram. I like it so far, but I think I like the packaging even more. I’ve heard that The Ordinary has pretty much the exact dupes for all the Glossier serums at a better price, so I’ll likely be trying them next.

Ren Instant Firming Beauty Shot

It’s a little sample that I’ve had laying around for a while. I’ve generally heard good things about Ren skincare and I like this serum for how it feels. Again, I can’t comment about what it actually does ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing face oil

One of my absolute favorite skincare items. I’ve bought this many times and I haven’t found any oils that work better than this for my skin. Again, I have super dry skin and just a normal moisturizer doesn’t really do anything for it. The packaging says to use 1 or 2 drops, but I go ham and use 4 or 6 depending on the season, just because my skin needs more than that. The only thing that I was iffy about was the scent – it smells a bit medicinal and herbal-y and I’d rather it not. But it’s done nothing but good to me so far, so I can’t complain!

CeraVe Moisturizing Cream

Another one of my absolute favorite skincare items. This is my third tub and I like it a lot because it’s a very simple, no-frills moisturizer that is relatively inexpensive. I generally use this in the morning (with 2 or 3 drops of the Fresh Seaberry face oil mixed in for the winter), and sometimes at night when my face oil has sunken in a bit. Sometimes I use this as an overall body moisturizer because it’s so inexpensive… also because I’m pretty sure that’s what it was formulated for.

Okay, so maybe I totally forgot about posting something earlier this week. I guess it’s better late than never? Also I finally made a new header :)

  • The cleanser you use sounds amazing! So does that facial oil by Fresh. I’ve love everything I’ve tried from Freah so now that oil is on my radar. I love that Dr Brandt scrub, I had a sample of it a few times from Sephora. I love their microdermabrasion scrub too!

    • They used to have a 15ml size of the fresh oil but they don’t sell it like that anymore 🙁 oooh maybe I should try the regular microdermabrasion one, I had no idea they were different ones hahaha.

  • CAN I JUST SAY I LOVE HOW PASSIONATE YOU ARE ABOUT SKINCARE?? I made a huge(ish) glossier order and I either really love or really hate their products hahaha. I ended up giving away my skin tint to my sister bc I think it makes me look straight up greasy and I have veeeerrry dry skin, but my sister has oily/combo skin and she LOVES it. Yeah I’m already more than halfway done my bottle of SB and I’ve only had it for a little over a month, but I think whatever serum I’m trying next I’ll decant into the SB one hahaha.

    And thank you!! I’m having tboughts about ombreing it again :^)

    I used to never have an issue with dry skin on my face or hands, but this winter the dryness is just killing me :O Really need to change my skincare routine now that I think about it! Is that cleanser really a jelly? I’ve never tried one that has a jelly consistency before, but I’m totally curious now!

  • I too love using cera-ve moisturiser.I have been using it since many years and it never breaks me out.
