The Lipstick League – Week of 4.4.11

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 10 - 2011

This week’s, question of the week…

What’s your skin care routine?

At night, I always remove my makeup with either a cleansing oil, balm or gel before following up with a cream-based non-drying cleanser (currently loving the new Bare Escentuals Purifying Facial Cleanser helped along with my Clarisonic).

I only use toner in the Summer (never astringent) and depending on how my skin is behaving, I alternate between facial oils and cream moisturisers.  I love a good eye cream and serum, especially if it promises to calm sensitised skin (currently in love with SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective) and once or twice a week, I’ll exfoliate with a chemical exfoliator like Alpha H Liquid Gold.

In the mornings, I’m much less high-maintenance.  I’ll splash some water on my face and a small amount of cleanser, pop on my Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream and sunscreen and I’m done!

    In the evening, I remove eye makeup, and the occasional lipstick, with coconut oil (I’m kind of preachy about that part, not for any health- or environmental reasons, but because it is the best makeup remover ever. It’s a bit insane how well it works!)
    I cleanse my face twice with a cream cleanser, removing it with a cotton pad. The look of the second cotton pad is a very convincing reason for cleansing twice! (And Lisa Eldridge said to, and I think she’s a nice lady.)

    I mist my face – to give slip and avoid over-applying oil, which is my next step – either Bio-Oil, when my skin is severely Gobi-ish feeling, or the Weleda Almond oil. I follow up with an eye gel and a cream moisturizer.

    In the morning, it’s just(???!) water to rinse off, the entire batch of moisturizers again, and a SPF30.
    For exfoliation I use baking soda mixed with my cleanser – this is possibly badbad, i have no clue. Very effective though! :D
