Regular A.M./P.M. Routine:
-Cleansing: Tatcha One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil.
-Eau Thermale: I spray thermale water (either Vichy or La Roche-Posay) on my face and take it off with a lint-free cotton facial pad.
-Toner: Just ran out of Primavera toner and am now using Origins, A Perfect World, Age Defense Treatment Lotion with White Tea, also used with cotton face pad.
-Serum: Just ran out of – and replenished last week – Tatcha Gold Camellia Beauty Oil.
-Moisturizer: Will be replacing Tatcha Ageless Enriching Renewal Cream with Creme de la Mer Moisturizing Cream this week.
-Eye Cream: Cle de Peau Intensive Eye Contour Cream.
-Lip Balm: Either EOS Lip Balm throughout the day or Peter Thomas Roth Pink Bombshell Lip Balm.
-Sunscreen: Either Supergoop! or Cle de Peau SPF 50 for face, neck and chest. La Roche-Posay Anthelios 45 for arms and hands (made for face).
On some days, these products replace step in routine or add to it:
-Simple Cleansing Micellar Water.
-Vichy Purete Thermale 3 in 1 One Step Cleanser, Sensitive Skin.
-Beauskin Snail Mucus Brightening Essence (I promise it’s not gross) pressed into skin.
-Bulgarian Rose Hydrosol Facial Toner spray to refresh skin between A.M. and P.M.
-Post-serum: Pure Vitamin E Oil pressed into skin.
-Post-Serum: Pure Grapeseed Oil pressed into skin.
-Blemish: Kate Somerville Eradikate Acne Treatment (spot treatment).
-Cel-Derma Multi-Perfection 100 Hydrogel Mask.
-Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Scrub (twice a week, very gently used on face).
-Tatcha Classic Rice Enzyme Powder.
-Tried Aquafor as a moisturizer (Derm prescribed), but need to do more research on the ingredients before using it again.
-After bad experience years ago with prescription-strength Retinol, Derm told me to get Skinceuticals Retinol .5%, which I did. Need to research how to use it with my skin care routine before I use it.
-Shampoo: L’Oreal Everstrong Sulfate-Free Anti-Breakage Shampoo.
-Conditioner: Aussie 3-Minute Miracle – Moist.
-Leave-in Conditioners: Kerastase Chroma Riche Essence and Kerastase Nectar Thermique (even these nice products aren’t enough for my super-dry hair!).
-Bumble + Bumble Invisible Hairdresser’s Oil.
-Bumble + Bumble Prep.
-Oribe Gold Pomade.
-Fekkai Dry Shampoo.
-L’Oreal Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse.
-Hate hairspray, so on the rare occasions I need it, I use what my husband has.
Whew – that’s a lot of products!
I’ll be updating this list every month. Also, I will forego some products if I am testing a new one I’ll be writing about. I am presently testing a line of skin care created for astronauts called 111 Skin.
If you have any questions about what I use or how I use it, please ask. Thanks.
