Updated skincare routine 2016!

It has been nearly a year or so since I shared my morning and night skincare routine. I have stayed faithful to a couple products but also ventured out to trying new things as well! Obviously keeping your skin clean is important, especially if you’re a makeup enthusiast like me. If your skin isn’t clean, cosmetics won’t go on as well! Anywho, here are the products I use to keep my complexion nice and fresh!

{Morning Routine}

IMG_2866As you can see, my morning skincare routine is very simplistic and easy! I’m not quite to the age to begin using serums and other advanced products, so it doesn’t take me very long! The first thing I do is apply Philosophy’s Purity Made Simple Deep-Clean Mask to my face. To ensure that the mask takes full effect, I don’t even wet my face beforehand. The thick gel-cream quickly emulsifies into a creamy, white lather. I usually let it sit for about a minute or so while I brush my teeth. When it’s time to rise off, I wet a microfiber washcloth (which is super-soft)!, and the product rolls off so effortlessly. I hardly have to apply any pressure. I really love how soft my face feels after I use this mask. I am definitely considering repurchasing!

The facial moisturizer I’ve been using for about the past two months was a gift from my German friends. Obviously, the packaging is in German so I can’t really translate it! It’s called bebe Young Care Feuchtigkeitscreme. So far, I have really been enjoying it. The creme has a very light texture that absorbs easily and doesn’t feel tacky. And, there is no annoying smell. I apply a small amount after I wash my face. It’s the perfect canvas for when I put primer on.

After a long day of school and homework, there is nothing more comforting that taking my “face” off and letting my skin breathe! To begin this process, I use Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water to remove my eye makeup. As I have said many times before, Micellar Water is truly a game-changer. It takes off the most stubborn makeup so easily, while still being gentle. I even did an entire post on it a while back if you’d like to check it out! It has forever earned a spot in my beauty collection.

Up next, I wash my face with my Clarisonic Mia 2 paired with Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Foaming Scrub. I have used this duo for nearly two years now and just love them together. Surprisingly, the scrub with the Clarisonic is not harsh on my skin at all. It helps me keep breakouts at bay. And, the Clarisonic Mia 2 does a fabulous job of cleansing my face effectively and gently. I can’t imagine being without it. It has also improved my skin texture sooo much. My makeup glides on so much easier! I would strongly suggest investing in one of these gadgets.

Lastly, I apply AcneFree Drying Lotion to my blemishes before bed. I can honestly say that I have tried just about every spot treatment under the sun, but none of them works as well as this one! You simply dip a cotton swab in the solution and cover the blemish with it. After about three or four nights, your blemish will significantly shrink and disappear. I really love this drying lotion because it’s non-irritating and most importantly, affordable!

Hope you enjoyed reading this post! What are your favorite products in your skincare routine?

Have a fabulous day!
