Morning Skincare Routine

Welcome back everyone!  Today I want to bring you through my morning skincare routine.  We are definitely not reinventing the wheel or doing anything groundbreaking here, because I’m pretty sure every single one of us just wants to help our skin in the shortest amount of time (I am also reasonably confident that no one has time to waste in the morning).  My morning skin care routine has to be something I can easily do at the gym with a dozen other women in under three minutes (because I really tend to zone out in the shower pre-coffee and lose track of time).  Anything more than the basics gets saved for my nighttime routine (check back on Friday to see that one!)

First up, I start with my cleanser and moisturizer.  Lately I have been using Pure Plush and Bare Haven.  I’ll be 100% honest with you guys, I do not love these ones as much as I loved the old bareMinerals cleanser and moisturizer.  That gentle exfoliating cleanser is what got me into a good skin routine because the results were just impossible to ignore.  These ones have been doing the job fine, so I don’t have any complaints, they’re just not as good.

Next up, I go to my neck and eye cream.  I am super self conscious about my tech neck and under eye bags, so I hit those areas two times a day.  Without wanting to drop a ton of money on designer creams, I’ve been experimenting with all different kinds lately.  Currently I’m using the L’Oréal RevitaLift Face & Neck Day Cream and am pretty happy with the firmness I’ve been seeing and the amazing price point!  For my eyes I’ve been using Clinique’s Pep-Start Eye Cream. It’s great for de-puffing my tired eyes, but absorbs quickly so it doesn’t irritate my eyeballs or club up underneath my makeup.

 

Lastly a few times per week I use Sara Happ’s The Lip Scrub to exfoliate and get rid of that dead skin.  Especially in the winter, because dark lipstick does not agree with chapped lips.  After I’ll usually swipe on some of The Lip Slip to start my day off with a lip balm, but they are currently backordered and I’m all out!

 

If there are any products you love to use in your morning routine and think I should try let me know about them in the comments!  Hope you all have a wonderful day!

xo, C
