I recommend creating a list of rules (or guidelines) of what you can/can’t buy and when would help, and I think having a fairly accurate inventory of what products you already have would also be a good way to start. If the low- or no-buy is in place because of a more important financial goal, try to visualize and find ways to keep that goal at the forefront.

I half-heartedly make one that’s beauty-related, mostly to answer the follow-up to this question, which will be “Do you have any beauty-related resolutions for 2017?” I had to look it up, and it was to write at least as many reviews as I did in 2015. I don’t have a final tally in yet, but at last look, it was just over 3,900 for 2016–and it was 3,564 in 2015, so I did!

Thanks to Ingrid for today's question!

What is your current evening skincare routine?

For cleansing, I use shu uemura’s cleansing oil, Sephora Coconut Makeup Wipes, and Shiseido makeup remover (as necessary). I use my prescription topicals (Differin, clindamycin), and then I use Kiehl’s Avocado eye cream and Origins Ginzing. Sometimes I use Drunk Elephant’s Hydration Gel.

What is your current morning skincare routine?

I cleanse with Cle de Peau’s Cream Cream Oil, Kate Somerville ExfoliKate (as necessary), and then use my prescription topical (clindamycin) followed by La Roche Posay Antehlios SX. If I’m going to be outside (not just going from car to place), then I use La Roche Posay Anthelious 50.

Thanks to Huma for today's question!

Have you ever missed out on a beauty product?

I think I have been fairly successful at obtaining most of the hyped up releases, but there have been many that were not worth the hype. The way I look at things is that most products have dupes, and if they don’t, they will, so everything is just a matter of time.
