current skincare routine + favorites

Good skincare is something that I’m pretty religious about…  There is hardly a day that goes by that I don’t wash my face and put on a facial moisturizer.  A clean and hydrated face really helps with makeup application and it just makes me feel good.

These are the products I currently use:


I wash my face with Philosophy’s Purity Made Simple one-step facial cleanser using my Clarisonic Mia 2.  This is such a gentle cleanser that doesn’t irritate or dry out my skin whatsoever.  My holy grail…


After I pat my face dry, I spritz Lush’s Tea Tree Water all over my face and gently massage it into my skin.  This does a great job with keeping my skin from getting oily.


Then, I pat a couple drops of Josie Maran’s 100% Pure Argan Oil onto my skin.  I absolutely love this stuff because it’s so moisturizing!   I also use a couple drops of it on my hair at nighttime to manage split ends.  Liquid gold…


Then, I pat a small amount of Origins’ GinZing eye cream around my eyes.  It gets rid of the puffiness around my eyes and helps me look more awake.  It also has a delicious orange scent, which I really love.


Finally, I’ve been alternating between this deluxe sample of Algenist’s Sublime Defense Anti-Aging Blurring Moisturizer and Origins GinZing Energy-boosting moisturizer.   Both are really amazing moisturizers that keep my combination skin at bay all day.  I believe I’ll be getting a full size of the Algenist moisturizer once this sample runs out because I love how it mattefies my skin and covers up the fine lines around my eyes.  The Origins moisturizer does a fab job at keeping my skin hydrated and also has an orange scent.

Which skin products are you loving at the moment?

  1. I’m currently using the OCM (oil cleansing method). I cleanse my face with grapeseed oil. Then I used Thayer’s Alcohol-Free Toner. I like the Rose petal. Then I moisturize with a couple drops of grapeseed oil. I’m looking for an eye cream. I may check out the ones you mentioned.
