Current Winter Skincare Routine

Hiya buddies!

 

The other night as I nestled myself cozily into bed, I realized something. I patted it my eye cream and thought, “Wow, I take awhile to get ready for bed.” What once took me minutes to accomplish now takes well over 15 minutes and why? #thirtysomethingproblems

The amount of steps involved in my current winter skincare routine rivals the cha-cha-cha. Here’s how it breaks down:

STEP ONE: Remove makeup

Lately I have been using the Earth Science Creamy Fruit Oil Cleanser to remove makeup and cleanse the skin. As a dry gal, I need a gentle product that cleans the skin but isn’t overly harsh. This stuff works great and is only about $10.

STEP TWO: Tone

My all-time favorite facial spray is the Beauty Elixir from Caudalie, mostly because it smells like a bougie spa and makes my face tingle.

STEP THREE: Moisturize

For me, moisturizer comes in many different forms. On a typical night I have been using the Skin Laundry Restoring Night Serum, followed by the Boscia Deep Hydration Sleeping Mask. The serum has a bit of a funny smell but pairs nicely with the sleeping mask.

If I need an extra surge of moisture, I will throw a sheet mask on. I am not too picky about the sheet masks these days but I LOVE these ones from Karuna.

If I want a lighter moisturizer for my face, I will use the Origins Ginzing Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer. I LOVE this line from Origins.

On my eyes, I have been using the Juice Beauty Smoothing Eye Concentrate. I smear this stuff all the way around my eye and it feels amazing.

Sometimes, if I want a CRAZY amount of moisture under my eyes, I apply some Confetti Cake Lip Balm, from Treat Beauty. It is basically straight-up coconut oil.

For my lips, I like to exfoliate! This Elf Lip Exfoliator in Mint Maniac is just the ticket. I follow up with more of my beloved Treat Beauty lip balm.

 

In regards to body care, I use a couple of different products for added moisture before bed.

On my thighs, I apply the CeraVe Renewing SA Lotion which helps with KP (read a whole post on that here).

Everywhere else, I apply this Exfolicare Coconut Oil Creme that David’s aunt Sandi got me from Maui. IT IS AMAZING and if we go back, I am hunting it down and buying it by the barrel.

That is about it for my winter skincare routine. What do I need to try next?! Let me know in the comments below!

    Ha, you’re right, the Caudali Beauty Elixir does smell like a bougie spa!
    The Karuna masks ARE amazing – I wished they weren’t so pricey though.
    You’ve got me curious about the Juice Beauty Smoothing Eye Concentrate… do you just use it alone? Nothing on top of it?
