I apply most of my skincare products in the evening, and it usually takes me about 6 to 10 minutes. I remove make-up with a micellar solution, use a gentle cleanser, apply a moisturizing cream. I finish up my routine with a eye cream and a lip balm.

Typically, I remove my eye makeup with MAC Cleanse-Off Oil or LUSH Ultrabland on a makeup wipe (I hate cotton pads because the firbes stick to my eye lashes). Then I use my all over face cleanser (alternating between LUSH 9-5, LUSH Sweet Japanese Girl and LUSH Buche de Noel, depending on how my skin is feeling), apply toner, moisturizer and eye cream.

Huh. That sounds like a lot, but it’s actually pretty simple. Or so I thought.

I put 16-30 mins but it’s probably over 30. I spend quite a bit of time with the Eve Lom cleanser, then Decleor Aromessence Ylang Ylang, then Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum, then Decleor Prolagene Gel, then Decleor Ylang Ylang Balm, then Decleor Aroma Night, then Phytomer eye cream and a lash treatment and lip balm. I find I wear much, MUCH less makeup and my acne has cleared up to the point that I can focus on eliminating pigmentation and refining pores instead of battling breakouts.

I don’t really have a skincare routine. I use a mask once in a while but there’s never a set time frame; sometimes twice a week other times i use it when i want some me-time. I basically wash my face with a deep cleanser that can take off my makeup too and then moisturize with my cream. If i’m not wearing makeup, I’ll just cleanse my face with a mild cleanser in the shower once a week for any buildup and then use a washcloth to cleanse my face in the morning and before I get ready for bed.

About 6-10 minutes. I wash my face in the shower, sometimes use a scrub too, and that gets all the makeup off. Then after I finish, I dry my face, apply a BHA toner (not everyday), hydrating skin serum, and then moisturize. Lately i’m using Silk Naturals ultimate luxury treatment powder after it all to kind of set it in place. Makes my face so soft!

I think about 6-10 minutes. Its short because my routine was given to me by my dermatologist so I had a set of thing I use. I only added an undereye cream and moisturizer to my routine and thats it

The reason why it takes me over 30 minutes for my skincare routine, and it’s going to sound a little crazy, but I use a tumeric+milk mask every night. It’s a mask to fight acne. It’s pure tumeric that’s pounded and I use about a 1/4 teaspoon of that with a 1/2 teaspoon of milk. It really helps my skin out since I have pretty bad acne. It calms down the whole area and settles the redness. After that its the usual cleanser, toner and moisturizer.

I thk bout 10-15 mins. I remove makeup with mac cleansing oil then use Shiseido cleansing foam. After which, softener, serum,moisturizer and eye cream. Once a week mask. That would add another 15 mins.

I take off my eye makeup with a cleanser for waterproof mascara, remove face makeup with a micellar solution (La Roche-Posay, currently), wash my face with Clinique Mild Liquid soap, tone with Clinique Blemish Solutions toner, apply Blemish Solutions moisturizer and I cover blemishes with azulen paste.

Sound like a lot but once you get into the routine, it’s easy and quick.

For a happy face: Wash with Ole Henriksen African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser > Ole Henriksen Fresh Start Eye Crème > apply Ole Henriksen Invigorating Night Gel > apply Ole Henriksen Nurture Me Crème > apply L’Oreal Lash Boosting Serum

…and no, I do not work for Ole Henriksen. 🙂

i probably range from 10-15 min.
but thats because i –
1) remove makeup
2) wash my face TWICE (gently! 1st to remove foundation and stuff then 2nd to really clean out the pores)
3) toner
4) moisturize – with a twist. I take a vitamin E pill and squeeze out the oil to mix with my moisturizer. It’s really helped with the appearance of my skin 🙂

I would really like to find a good eye cream since the skin under my eyes tends to sag slightly and give me tiny wrinkles that make me look tired 🙁
