Gentle Am routine ✨

avatar
MelissaTringle
Alright, so this is my routine in the morning. Didn’t change it for winter weather yet and I don’t know if I will honestly. My morning routine contains a few actives but mostly trying to take care of my dehydrated combination skin. I only rinse my face with lukewarm water in the morning except if I “slugged” the night before. I will use sioris - Cleanse Me Softly Milk Cleanser
as this is my current pm second cleanser. 🥛 Like my pm routine, I use both a first essence and a toner. My favorite steps even if they’re not 🌈 essentials 🌈 . In the am I use NEOGENLAB - Real Rerment Micro Essence
(thx james welsh) and I have to say I love it. My skin drinks it right up and automatically calms any tightness I might feel on my skin. I then follow with I'm from - Rice Toner
(again, james). I love that it contains niacinamide as I don’t like using it in high amounts (like in a serum) it’s also quite moisturizing for my combination skin. Really makes your skin glow. 🍚 I will then alternate the use of the The Ordinary - Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12%
and PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster
as my actives. On days I use the Vit C, I will use right after the toner and will follow with The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG
. The caffeine solution was really working the first months but now my under eye doesnt seem to react as much to it... will probably not buy it again but the bottle last ages so I will finish it. ☕️ For the ascorbyl solution, it’s a really nice and gentle option. Will switch to straight L ascorbic acid serum when the ascorbyl is done though :) 🍋 If I use the azelaic acid, I will skip the vit C and apply the caffeine solution straight after toner. I will then put on the VERSED - DEW POINT Moisturizing Gel-Cream
which is a super nice soothing gel moisturizer with really impressive ingredient list for a drugstore product. I will THEN apply the azelaic acid over it to prevent any irritation. 🌿 I will end the routine with the famous PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+
. Do I really need to explain how awesome this product is ? 🌞**will discontinue use after I’m done with it. Any recommendations for a cruelty free spf available in Canada?*** If you have any recommendations to make it more “cold weather friendly” your suggestions are appreciated ❄️

JasonPThe Centella sunscreen is BOMB! I’ve been wanting to try the Versed moisturizer. Currently using the gentle retinol by Versed and love it.

MelissaTringleHey the versed retinol is not available here yet. Wanted to give it a try too but didn’t find the retinol %. The moisturizer is really nice and soothing but maybe a little light for winter if you’re a bit on the dry side :)

why YOU should be using AZELAIC ACID
azelaic acid is a super amazing ingredient in skincare ! it aids in: even skin tone target stubborn spots soothes irritation & redness PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster 🍃key ingredients 🍃 azelaic acid (skin brightening, texture improving) glycerin (skin replenishing) salicylic acid (exfoliant) licorice root extract (skin soothing) I really really love this product!! it claims to do what is listed above, and I must say that it does this. I use this every night in my routine. it is a cream texture which I was surprised with at first because I had previously used the NATURIUM - Azelaic Topical Acid 10% which is a serum formula. before using this product, when I would pop my pimples...(I know I know, but we have all been there right?!), I would wake up with a huge scar on my face with redness everywhere! NOW, (for the occasional time that I do get pimples and pop them), the redness fades very soon after and I wake up looking like I never had a pimple there in the first place! my jawline tends to be prone to texture & pimples, and I believe that this product is a key reason as to why I don’t get many bumps or pimples there anymore!! I swear by this product and will definitely be trying to repurchase it in the future if my budget allows me to haha. PAULA’S CHOICE: 1oz for $36

Simple Look Friday
Hi Cherie! I hope you’re all having a great Friday!! my favorite look is a “natural” look. I love dewy looking skin, but I don’t like looking like I’m wearing so much makeup! My current go-to look has been quite simple! I wash my face with CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin & then I use I'm from - Rice Toner Once that fully absorbs, I’ll lightly pat The Ordinary - Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% over my skin. Finally, I’ll put ELEMIS - Pro-Collagen Marine Cream all over my face & neck. I LOVE this stuff. It hydrates & moisturizes without being too much & it smells amazing!! That’s it for my face. Then I’ll move on to my eyes. I’ll put trèStiQue - Conceal, Cover & Correct Crayon & then use MAYBELLINE - Hyper Easy Waterproof Liquid Liner In Pitch Black in the top corner of my eyes, I do this to highlight the mascara I’ll be adding next. Finally, after curling & brushing out my lashes, I will put MAYBELLINE - Lash Sensational Mascara Full Fan Effect on my top & bottom lashes. Finally, I will use WINKY LUX - Limited Edition Flower Balm on my lips. This goes on clear but then turns this pretty bright pink color! I love it because it always keeps my lips hydrated! & that’s it! My natural makeup routine! Thanks so much for reading & I hope you guys try out my look! Talk to you soon! 💖💋

Updated Night Routine!
I had a lot of empties in January, so here is my updated night routine! I have a post detailing actives that I use and my schedule around those actives, so they won’t be included in this post. My first step is my double-cleansing step, I use the Dr Dennis Gross - Hyaluronic Marine Makeup Removing Meltaway Cleanser (📍)to remove SPF and makeup, which I really love, it’s very unique, but it doesn’t break me out at all. Then I use the LANEIGE - Cream Skin Milk Oil Cleanser (📍) to cleanse a second time, I really enjoy this too, my skin tends to freak out when it comes to Laneige’s fragrance, but this is fragrance-free!! After cleansing I steam my face with the Dr Dennis Gross - Pro Facial Steamer which I feel like has really helped the hydration levels of my skin. After that I’ll apply the TATCHA - The Essence Plumping Skin Softener (📍)which I also like, but I’m not sure how much it’s really done for my skin for what it’s worth. I’ll steam again, for about 30 seconds and then go into my PETER THOMAS ROTH - Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Serum which is the only serum that can truly repair my moisture barrier when I’m breaking out. Then my eye product is The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG (📍)which I’ve been loving a lot too! My current winter moisturizer is the Dr. Jart+ - Ceramidin Cream which again, I like, but it feels like it puts a barrier on my skin, which kind of felt weird to begin with. After moisturizer, my last two steps are to treat any breakouts or spots with the Murad - Blemish Control Rapid Relief Spot Treatment and use something to lock it all in like the The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Moroccan Argan Oil it does the job, but smells super weird. The only way I’ve been able to describe it is, picture the olive bar at a local grocery store, and the smell that comes from that. Not super pleasant, but it’s okay. 📍= product was sent to me for free

These are my ride or die
So, I have an autoimmune disease and I tend to have lots of inflammation. That being said, when I wake up puffy like a blow fish 🐠.... these are my life savers ! The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG this little baby packs a punch! De-puffs and gives my eyes a wake up call!! It is unique in that it is not a cream. At first I wasn’t sure, but I’m hooked. One drop on each eye does the trick. Easy to apply, smooth and silky! Wake up those peepers with this little bottle of magic 🪄!! mizz bloom - JADE ROLLER this is my go to in morning to drain my lymphatic system. I keep mine in my skin fridge, so it is nice and cold! Add my serums and then have a nice little roll! De puffs my face and helps with contouring. T

The best sunscreen for dry skin☀️
Y’all… Let me tell you how dry my skin gets. My skin gets so dry that it looks like my skin is actually flaking. I have struggled with dry skin my entire life and I hardly find any products that truly help my skin. I reached out to a friend who gave me a skin care routine and she suggested this sunscreen PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ it is honestly the best! Not only is it scent free but it hydrates my skin without burning it. I have high sensitivity to a lot of products and this is one that doesn’t make my skin irritated or break out. If you struggle with dry skin, try out this sunscreen! Not only does it help with the dryness but also you should always be protecting your face with sunscreen!!!

Battle of the sunscreens ☀️🧴
Ever since the purito ‘scandal’ I went into a sunscreen shopping spree and tried a few. PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ - I loved this sunscreen, it was moisturizing, didn’t leave my face oily or with a white cast and offered supposedly SPF 50 protection. Some lab results tested it and it came back at around SPF 19 and another test came back at SPF 30ish. I obviously no longer count on this sunscreen as my primary sunscreen but when working from home and far from windows I wear it and try to reapply it, not throwing it away until it’s finished! It’s an affordable physical sunscreen. Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Sunscreen SPF 50 - this sunscreen is a chemical sunscreen. I learned after I bought it that one of the ingredients is not good for the coral reefs so never buying again. It burns, leaves my face oily and has a strong scent that I don’t like. As a chemical sunscreen it doesn’t leave a white cast. ETUDE - Sunprise Mild Airy Finish Sun Milk SPF 50+ PA+++ - I bought this off of a recommendation for a substitution for the purito one. It’s very light and absorbs easily but it does leave a white cast which lead me to buy the next one. Australian Gold - Botanical Tinted Face Sunscreen SPF 50 - this sunscreen is awesome. I never wear makeup so I was nervous I’d look weird/different with a tinted sunscreen but that’s not the case. The color is to offset the white cast that is hard to not have with a mineral sunscreen. It’s pretty affordable at $10 for 3oz. Though I’ve tried multiple sunscreens I’m not done experimenting and trying new ones, just waiting to use up these four first. I go through sunscreens pretty fast though, with using them everyday and having to reapply once or twice. Let me know what your experience with these sunscreens has been and if you have any recommendations for physical sunscreens that don’t leave a white cast and don’t leave your face oily!

P.m. skincare routine. Suggestions ?
Here is my pm skincare routine. Started to care about my skin couple months ago only. Never had major issues but fine lines are starting to appear and let’s face it, I was bored during quarantine. I wanted to give double cleanse a try but had trouble finding a drugstore cleansing balm. I came across cocokind - Oil to milk cleanser and was pleasantly surprised. Works okay on make up and is gentle with nice ingredients. I wish the gliding would be a bit more smooth though. I can sometimes feel some pulling and tugging. 🌾 I follow with sioris - Cleanse Me Softly Milk Cleanser as I like milky cleansers. This one is fine especially in colder weather but I sometimes feel like its a bit heavy and not deep cleansing enough. I prefer LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser but have run out. 🥛 I then follow with a first essence and a toner. People always say they are not essential in your routine but they’re actually my fave step. Adding soothing and hydrating ingredients without any heavy/greasy texture (I damaged my skin barrier after over exfoliating). I'm from - Mugwort Essence & COSRX - Propolis Synergy Toner are the ones I’m using right now. My skin agrees with both and it calms down any redness or tight feeling after cleansing. 🐝 I wanted to try snail mucin and was missing a small amount for free shipping (I know you feel me) so opted for MIZON - Snail Repair Eye Cream . Haven’t seen any results on the fine lines around my eyes yet as its only been a couple weeks but the texture is amazing and light and silky. 🐌 Once a week I will use THE inkey LIST - Retinol Serum . Will step up to two times a week very soon. Just started my retinol journey and almost made the mistake to go with a 1% OTC retinol. Boy am I glad I did some research. This one is 0,05% retinol. Would really like your recommendations for a next step retinol for my next purchase :). I end the routine with CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion . Really love this. It has niacinamide which is nice because I don’t use it in serum form. I have it in my am toner as well and its just enough for me. Would maybe wanna switch up for a heavier moisturizer for winter if you have any suggestions. Cerave is always sold out in drugstores so wanted to try something else when I run out. Please feel free to recommend products you like. I will mention I use I'm from - Honey Mask and dear, klairs - Midnight Blue Calming Cream on nights my skin feel really bothered (like the night after I used the retinol) I adore the mask but will not be repurchasing the klairs cream. Its a bit overpriced and overrated in my opinion. I will gladly pay less for a similar white “less instagramable” cream. Any suggestion for this one as well? 🍯💙

Moisturizers
Since I began my skincare journey I have been moisturizing my skin with oils instead of moisturizers. The oils I’ve used and love are Squalane, Argan, Rosehip Seed & Seabuckthorn. I love them dearly and they are non-comedogenic (doesn’t clog pores) I have decided to use moisturizers now instead of soley oil. Sometimes I top my moisturizer with oil if I feel the need to. Some people think because you have oily skin you shouldn’t use oil to moisturize but they are great and very beneficial for the skin....but leaves you with and oily looking finish. I wasn’t sure which moisturizers I use so I began looking up some mositurizers which are good for my skin type. I came across a few on a YouTube channel called beauty within. I decided to try these two and I am in LOVEEE So the first one I purchased was the VERSED - DEW POINT Moisturizing Gel-Cream It’s pretty good. It looks like a cream but has a gel consistency and it melts right into my skin. It’s made with green tea extract and aloe leaf juice which is good. Green tea is great for acne and calms and soothes the skin. Aloe leaf juice is filled with antioxidants and enzymes and also great for acne. The next one: - Blue Cica Azulene Dew Soothing Hydration Cream It’s a little pricey but soo worth it!! This is also a gel cream that melts into the skin. It’s filled with deep sea water, spirulina and pentavin for hydration to help strengthen the skin barrier. After using my skin looks smooth like glass and feels hydrated. Both are great for am/pm use. Have you guys tried these moisturizers?? If so how do you like them?

Minis that I loved 💘
Happy Mini Monday 👌🏾 These are some products that I actually loved and bought bigger sizes of: SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream . Smells heavenly and leaves my skin so soft. This is costly, but its so worth it. HERBIVORE - Blue Tansy Mask . I’ve never finished a mini so fast. My skin felt so soft and clear after every use. I used this the recommended every other day and now that I have my new one I can use it every week. Nature Lab. - Shine Clarifying Scalp Scrub Yes any texture can use a scalp scrub and I loved this one. I used it as a patch test on the middle (where my hair is most congested) and i can’t wait for my bigger size for my next wash day! @cosrx : snail mucinCOSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence . I still have the bigger size of this baby but Ulta sent me a sample size which I still love. NEOGENLAB - Real Rerment Micro Essence This baby one plenty of awards last year and I can see why. I actually use this one in the morning and the snail mucin essence at night. It’s way lighter and since I don’t use harsh ingredients I don’t need the buffer effect that I need at night. Have you tried any of these minis?

Current Products I'm Using
I have oil/combo skin and been struggling with hormonal acne for a few years now which is mainly around my chin. I have noticed some positive changes but also some negative ones, for example I have more blackheads in areas besides my nose which I never had before. Here are the products I've been using lately. AM Routine I don't cleanse in the morning just splash water on my face and pat dry, then I apply PAULA'S CHOICE - Resist C15 Super Booster after I apply moisturizer e.l.f. - Holy Hydration! Face Cream - Fragrance Free then sunscreen Supergoop! - Play Everyday Lotion SPF 50 With Sunflower Extract PM Routine During the day I don't wear much makeup just some mascara so I just use GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water with Rose Water for my first cleanse, then I go in with PAULA'S CHOICE - Pore Normalizing Cleanser which I am just about out of so I will be using CeraVe - Salicylic Acid Facial Cleanserwhich I haven't tried before but decided to buy it because of all the hype! Than I apply my toner and depending on my skin at the time I will either use PAULA'S CHOICE - Pore-Reducing Toner or I'm from - Rice Toner I have just recently purchased and starting using The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% then I moisturizer with THE inkey LIST - Peptide Moisturizer I use PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator twice a weeks and PAULA'S CHOICE - 1% Retinol Treatment with Peptides + Vitamin C 3 times a week. My skin is still breaking out so I'm gonna try eliminating certain products to see if I can pin point what is causing the breakouts and blackheads. I recently purchased a cleansing brush and I'm gonna start by eliminating the Paulas choice BHA Exfoliator and start using the brush 2 or 3 times a week instead. If that's not the problem then I'm gonna try taking out the Vitamin C. If anyone has any advice or tips I am all ears!!!

My Current Extra AF Morning Routine✨
My Current Extra AF Morning Routine✨
A lot of products, I know. But I’ve found a routine that works for me! I currently alternate days between PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster and The Ordinary - Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% but everything else I’ve been using daily. Why do I use two moisturizers? Let me explain. When I first started my skincare journey, I was battling a pretty persistent case of fungal acne on my forehead. It wasn’t until I stopped using an oil cleanser and switched moisturizers that the acne stopped. I’ve found that FIRST AID BEAUTY - Hello FAB Coconut Water Cream helps keep my forehead hydrated without causing it to get too oily, which had been part of the problem. It also is free of many of the esters and omega fatty acids that can normally trigger fungal acne breakouts. Why not use it on my whole face then? Well, I’ve got combo skin, and my cheeks tend to dry up pretty quick. I’m obsessed with the texture of DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream and it’s been my favorite ever since I received a sample from Sephora about a year ago. I honestly couldn’t bear the thought of saying goodbye. Currently been testing out the COSRX - Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser because I ran out of my all time favorite YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser and I’ve got a lot of thoughts. Post coming soon. Hope you’re all having a good Monday and surviving all the bullish*t🌈 If you need a friend, I’m here! Let’s remember to be good to one another (and ourselves) through this!!!

*the beet shield: this is the first sunscreen I’ve ever used and I’m already stocked up after this one runs out. It isn’t oily, it doesn’t leave a cast, and it leaves me with a glow! *matcha hemp cleanser: this cleanser doesn’t leave a tight feeling on my face and hydrates my skin :) it still does the job even when I skip oil cleansing *great barrier relief: anytime I use a new product or overuse a product that breaks me out, this serum is really good at calming my skin down. I can’t layer it with too many things but the purpose is to reset your skin *toner: this toner makes my skin feel really soft. when i first used it it tingled a lot, so I only use it 2 times a week max when I’m not using my mandelic acid. also i only use a little bc using too much hurts my face Through any products I have tried, I’ve always turned back to these and plan on reordering when I run out :)

Morning routine for bright and glowy skin
Morning routine for bright and glowy skin
Me last year = lots and lots of breakouts. Me now = still very acne prone BUT got a hold of it and now I want to target acne scars, get glowy skin and avoid any future flare ups. My morning and evening routines are fairly different. In the evening, I do a double cleanse and use products like my benzagel face wash to reduce the chances of getting acne and mix up a couple different products such as acids or retinol depending on what my skin needs. But in the morning I try to go for a hydrating and brightening routine that will help me reduce my pesky acne scars and make me look glowy and more awake! I also love this routine because most products are from the drugstore. Products: CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser This is great for the morning. It’s gentle, hydrating and won’t strip the skin. Definitely worth your money. I'm from - Rice Toner Loving this toner for the morning to help keep my skin plump and bright. This is one of products that I depend on to gently fade my acne scars and overall brighten my whole face. Mad Hippie - Vitamin C Serum I’m not quite ready to give a full review on this yet, but so far, so good! This serum has a higher percentage of vitamin c (10%) than the latest one I was using and also vitamin e and ferulic acid. Overall, skin is glowy and it’s not irritated at all, so I’m happy. THE inkey LIST - Caffeine Eye Cream Keeps eyes hydrated, helps de-puff, all good in my books. HONEST - Hydrogel Cream So excited to put up a full review about this product, but overall, great ingredients that keep skin moisturized and I love how glowy it makes my skin look in the morning. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios 50 Mineral Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid SPF 50 Light-weight, good protection, no white cast and also helps give skin a little glow in the morning. Super happy with this purchase so far. Thought of the day: I had been doing a water cleanse in the morning for the last few months but recently read that it wasn’t the best idea. So I’ve started to use this gentle cleanser from Cerave for now. My skin seems to be liking it so far! Does anyone else do a water cleanse in the AM?

Hi girlies, this is my 8 step day time skin care routine, and this is the order i apply them too💗 1⭐️I wash my face with the PCA skin - Creamy Cleanser and omg I absolutely love this cleanser, it is great if you have dry skin because after washing your face feels so hydrated and you dont have that dry feeling like your skin is gonna rip off anytime lol! 2⭐️After that i apply my HERITAGE STORE - Rosewater Spray toner and i gently tap it in until it feels tacky, and hydrated, 3⭐️after that i apply my NEOGENLAB - Real Rerment Micro Essence which is an hydrating essence thats so hydrating i love how moisturized i feel, and it also helps to brighten my skin. 4⭐️After my essence i like applying my vitamin C from hyper - Hyper Clear Brightening Clearing Vitamin C Serum right after my toner directly onto my skin and gently tap everything in. This vitamin C is absolutely amazing, it helped me with my hyperpigmentation tremendously. It is for sensitive skin, i never experienced no redness or burning from it. 5⭐️After vitamin C I apply The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 for some more hydration and after that i apply my PAULA'S CHOICE - Daily Pore-Refining Treatment with 2% BHA which is a chemical exfoliator, its in liquid form and guys YOU NEED THIS! I cant barely see my pores & i had HUGE pores! This is a staple in my day routine! 6⭐️After exfoliator i apply my NEOGENLAB - Real Ferment Micro Serum this serum is so good, leaves my skin plump and soft, It is formulated with Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Vitamin B5, as well as active ingredients like panthenol and collagen to help reinforce skin elasticity. It is non-greasy but hydrating, improves oil-water balance, and fortifies skin barrier for a healthy and radiant complexion!! 7⭐️Next step I apply my moisturizer from BANILA CO - Dear Hydration Moisture Boosting Cream and its so hydrating and i love how my skin feels after, not greasy but hydrated. 8⭐️The last step of courseee its SPF THANK YOU FARMER - Sun Project Water Sun Cream and guys this sunscreen is AMAZING leaves me feeling hydrated and it gives me this amazing glow 😍 and thats it, thats whats been working for me during the day & of course with clearing the hyperpigmentation around my mouth area. I hope this helps 💗 ill be posting my night routine soon! Lmk if you like more of these posts 😊

So I have dry skin and it is a bit sensitive and I found that these products worked best for me. I apply it in such order 1) Cleanser 2) Toner 3) Serum/Booster 4) Moisturizer 5) Sunscreen (AM only) For the cleanser LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Dermo-Cleanser I really enjoyed it. It did wonders for my dry skin. It has a creamy milky consistency that doesn’t lather ensuring that your skin isn’t overly stripped. I would also recommend this product if you have sensitive skin because it has 8 ingredients! For sensitive skin it is better to use less ingredients to ensure that your skin doesn’t get irritated. I would compare the consistency to CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser. Next I use a toner. FARMACY - Deep Sweep The only reason I actually use it is because of the BHA. I found it to not be irritating and my skin didn’t have a tingling feeling either. Since I do have dry skin I don’t use it all over my face. I only use it on my chin for whiteheads and on my nose for blackheads. Another plus is that this toner is alcohol free! After that I use a serum/booster. VERSED - HYDRATION STATION Booster With HA This booster is really good and I didn’t find it to be sticky as others might say. It has a lightweight consistency and almost feels like there isn’t anything on your face. After I apply this booster my skin feels really soft and hydrated which is a must for dry skin. Hyaluronic acid offers those benefits. The moisturizer I use is the HONEST - The Daily Calm Lightweight Moisturizer When I found out that Honest Beauty came out with this formula I was impressed because they usually use fragrances (essential oils) in their products. I decided to give it a try because it is fragrance free. However, it had a noticeable scent to it that wasn’t pleasant. Yes it is fragrance free but it just has a noticeable “lotion” type smell that you can smell all day. Besides that one problem I have no complaints. (If you have moisturizer suggestions for dry skin please let me know) Finally I use sunscreen. BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 PA +++ This right here is one of the only sunscreens with zinc oxide that doesn’t leave a white cast. Sunscreen is an essential part of your skincare routine no matter what your skin tone is. You should definitely be using one especially if you exfoliate. It feels like there is nothing on your face. I definitely recommend this one!!
