Hey bffs! I’m SO excited to share with you today my go to skincare routine for my dry skin! I’m going to be giving you a step by step guide of what I use daily morning and night. These products has truly made a difference in the way my skin looks with AND without makeup! I absolutely love all of these, and can’t wait to share them with you today!
Morning Skincare Routine:
DISCOUNT CODE: Enjoy 20% off TULA products with code: “PAIGE20”
Now I’m just being honest, I’m not big on doing a mile long list of skincare in the mornings! Chances are I’m still half asleep, and needing my coffee. That being said, I still want a clean and moisturized face, especially if I’m wearing makeup that day.
Step One: Tula Cleanser
Oh my gosh you guys, this is hands down the BEST facial cleanser I have ever used. Every single cleanser I have tried in the past has left my skin feeling completely stripped. This does not! After using this for the first time, I kept touching my face and couldn’t believe how soft it felt! Then, that same night Joseph used it himself in the shower (he likes to steal my skincare ha!) and came to me saying “Man, my face feels soft” I told him I thought the same thing earlier! Is it that cleanser!? Turns out it was the this cleaner by Tula! We are on our third bottle, and don’t see it changing anytime soon! The reviews are absolutely amazing and we know why! OBSESSED.
Step Two: The Ordinary “Buffet” Serum
I have just started using The Ordinary skincare in the last six months after hearing such rave reviews! I am not only impressed by the quality, but the affordable price tag! This Buffet serum is only $14, but my goodness is it FABULOUS! This serum helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles, dullness, uneven texture, and dryness! They named it Buffet, because it’s all the good stuff in one trip! (Yep! Just like Golden Corral!) Like most serums, this one gets tacky! So make sure to let it get good and soaked in before going on to your next step. You don’t want to get in a hurry and it start peeling!
Step Three: The Ordinary Natural Moistuizing Factors + HA
This is another “The Ordinary” product and is only $5! When purchasing some other items on Sephora’s website, I saw this and thought to myself, My goodness, how cheap! What the heck, I’ll add it to my cart! To my surprise, I loved it! This is the PERFECT, everyday wear moisturizer. It’s great for dryness, but has a non greasy feel! This soaks into the skin immediately, which makes it great to layer makeup on top of! Plus, that affordable price tag is everything!
That’s it for my morning routine! I told y’all it’s nothing overkill, but it’s perfect for my on the go, half asleep, and in a hurry girlfriends! Haha! I normally do these steps, and wait about 10 minutes before going in with makeup.
Nighttime Skincare Routine:
Now HERE is the good part, and my favorite thing to do at the end of each day. I NEVER skip out on this routine. In high school I would wear my makeup to school, come home and sleep in it, then wear it again the next day with a little extra powder on top. YOU GUYS!! What was I thinking? I only applied a full face a few times a week, because the rest were second wear days! YIKES! That being said, my skincare routine now is absolutely essential for me!
Step One: Equate EyeMakeup Removing Oil
If I’m wearing some hard to get off mascara or have some eyelash glue still leftover this stuff gets the job done! I use a little pad like shown, and it takes off EVERY bit of makeup left on my eyes. I’m obsessed with this eye makeup remover, and have used it for over 5 years! I truly couldn’t live without this!
Step Two: Equate Nighttime Wipes
I guess you guys can tell now that I love me some off brand! Haha! I swear I have used these same makeup removing wipes for as long as I can remember. I always try to get as much makeup off as I can before going in with a cleanser, that way I can get a really deep clean when its time! These have a calming fragrance, and leave my skin feeling so soft!
I told you how much I loved the Tula Cleanser earlier, but for nighttime I use my Clarisonic cleansing system paired with it to exfoliate and get all that makeup off! I have used this consistently for years, and I can tell when I stop using it! You can use this morning and night, but I typically just use it at nighttime. That’s when I need it the most to get rid of all that makeup from the day! This cleans your skin 6X better than your hands alone, and has helped me SO MUCH with texture issues. This has a 60 second timer, and shuts off when it’s done cleansing. The website says in one week you’ll see smoother and more radiant skin, and in four weeks less visible pores! I LOVE THIS THING, and it has been worth every dime since I purchased it in 2015!
Step Four: L’Oreal Revitalift Brightening Peel Pads
After I get done cleansing my face, I go in with my L’Oreal Peel Pads! These are $19.99 in store, so I always order them off of Amazon! These pads have been out for FOREVER, but have been raved about so much! After hearing all the hype, I had to try them for myself! I could tell almost immediately after using them that my skin was so much clearer and brighter. They also help with wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and give you a lit from within glow! LOVE these.
Step Five: The Ordinary “Buffet” Serum
I already stated above how much I loved this serum, so you know I have to include this in my nighttime routine as well! It is AMAZING! I also want to note that prior to using this I was using the Lancome Genifique serum that is well over $100 so when I found a total dupe for that I was SOLD! I have both and compared them many times side by side and can’t tell a bit of difference! You can read so many rave reviews on Sephora about this serum! It’s FAB! I truly cannot believe how inexpensive it is, and a little bit goes a long way!
Step Six: BAEBODY Eye Gel
I have tried what feels like EVERY eye cream on the market, from $10 to $100! I can’t believe this $20 one from Amazon turned out to be my favorite! This fights the appearance of wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles! It is also a gel, so I go in with this right after my serum, before adding my thicker products on top. (It’s a good rule of thumb to work from thin to thick in skincare) I sometimes use this in the mornings if my eyes are puffy and it fixes it! This comes in a big tub, and will last forever! You only need to use a little around the eye area, so it will be next year before I run out of this! I can definitely tell a difference after using this, and its the best bang for your buck!
Step Seven: The Ordinary Rose Hip Seed Oil
This oil is only $10, and is SO amazing! It leaves me with the softest, most hydrated skin when I wake up in the mornings! It is the perfect nightime oil for all year round.
Step Eight: Tula Hydrating Day/Night Cream
This is my FAVORITE moisturizer for dry skin! It is super lightweight and non greasy, which I love! It is also jammed packed with probiotics making the skin super hydrated! You can use this day or night, but I use it exclusively at night to get the most out of it! It is great for all skin types, and amazing for treating and preventing breakouts for me! THE BEST!
I was blown away the first time I ever tried this! By far the best face mask I have ever used! Holy smokes! The minute I wash this off, I can tell an immediate difference in how much clearer and brighter my skin looks! My skin feels sooooo soft too! (The kind of soft where you can’t stop touching it!) This doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry or stripped, but moisturized! I absolutely love this mask, and highly recommend it!
That is it friends! My morning and nighttime skincare routine! Thank you SO much for reading along. I love ya’ll so much!
