The Skincare Line up: September 10th, 2021

Good morning my darlings! we have made it to the end of the week. This week my skin is feeling much better than it was before, despite a few hormonal break outs. I was able to keep some of my line up as well as add in a few new products. So lets take a look at how this week’s products worked out.

Daytime Skin Care

Deodorant: Native Blackberry and Green Tea Deodorant

Cleanser: Korres Foaming Cream Cleanser Pre + Probiotics Greek Yoghurt

Toner: Murad Hydrating Toner

Essence: Time Revolution Artemisia Treatment Essence from Missha (Gifted by brand)

Serum: Herbal Dynamics Beauty Hyaluronic Acid62% Hydrating Serum

Eye Cream: ESPA 24 Hour Replenishing Eye Moisturizer

Moisturizer: OSEA Atmosphere Protection Cream

Sunscreen: Volition Prismatic Luminizing Shield in SPF 50

Toothpaste: Crest Gum Detoxify Deep Clean

Okay to be honest, my daytime line up didn’t change. I was planning on changing out the day time moisturizer, but I figured since i changed out the night time one I would leave the OSEA in place this week. It is not my favorite moisturizer, but it isn’t bad. I think it just feels a little heavier on my skin than I like during the day. I’ll end up[ using it as a moisturizer on my hands post wash and sanitation so it won’t go to waste, but something about it does feel a bit heavier.

While I love the Herbal Dynamics Beauty Hyaluronic acid, I think I want to just use it at night instead of day and night. This week I used it for both and while my skin loved it, I think it might be making me a little bit sun sensitive. I did notice that despite the Volition sunscreen I was getting a bit more red from time outside than i usually do.

The Missha Artemisia helped take that red down a lot and make me feel better, but what’s the old saying – An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. I like having something that helps, but I’d rather not need the help. So I am going to roll in a day time serum this coming week and save the Herbal Dynamics for the night time. On the plus side, it may make the serum last longer. I think I have about two more weeks of product left if used that way.

Over all those are my thoughts on the daytime line up. Everything else just worked really well. I keep feeling the ESPA eye cream tube and hoping that the product won’t run out because I am really enjoying it. The Korres Cleanser I am afraid won’t make it much longer. I might be able to use it all week, but I suspect by about Wednesday It too may run out and need to be replaced. It is a fantastic cleanser and one that I will be purchasing repeatedly in the future.

Nighttime Skin Care

Makeup Remover: Makeup Eraser Cloth

Cleanser: Korres Foaming Cream Cleanser Pre + Probiotics Greek Yoghurt

Exfoliator: Hey Honey Come Clean Propolis and Minerals Facial Scrub

Toner: Murad Hydrating Toner

Essence: Time Revolution Artemisia Treatment Essence from Missha (Gifted by brand)

Serum: Herbal Dynamics Beauty Hyaluronic Acid62% Hydrating Serum

Eye Cream: ESPA 24 Hour Replenishing Eye Moisturizer

Lips: Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in Berry

Night Mask: Elemis Peptide 4 Plumping Pillow Facial

Toothpaste: Crest Gum Detoxify Deep Clean

This week my Peach Pudding Makeup remover ran out and so I replaced it with my Makeup Eraser. That’s it. No product, just the makeup eraser. It worked well. I just used water and took off my makeup with it, It worked well. The Korres took off the rest so there was little makeup remaining.

I did end up using the Hey Honey exfoliator a bit more this week. About three times instead of once a week. It was gentle enough that I could do this, but I really did enjoy the exfoliator as well. I think because I eliminated one cleansing product i automatically reached for a replacement. It felt good though and did help with the remains of the breakouts so my skin is much clearer. Ido want to go back to a once a week exfoliation though.

Even though I really like using my Makeup Eraser, I think I am going to roll in a micellar water or cleansing oil or something. I think I just really like a double clean as well as the cloth.

This week the big new product in the line up was the Elemis pillow facial. I meant to roll it in and just use it a few times a week while choosing a different night cream, but I just ended up using it as a night cream on it’s own. It is fantastic. I love the scent, It is a lightly floral scent that seems strong in the jar but fades pretty quickly once applied. The cream is light, almost like a gel cream consistency and it absorbs really quickly so your face isn’t stuck to the pillowcase. I think because it’s texture reminded me so much of a gel cream I didn’t remember to roll in a different night cream. And to be honest, I am not sure i will bring in a different moisturizer at night. For now this is just the right amount of moisture for my skin just before bed time. I’ll be changing out the day time moisturizer this week, but between the Elemis on my face and the Laneige on my lips, my night time is happily covered.
