1| Attempting to actually do the thing.
2| Eye makeup removal with Salma Hayek’s eye makeup remover.
3| Cleanser. Just bought the new (or new-ish, I don’t know) AM/PM cleanser from her.
4| Moisturize, if I’m not too lazy. Which is rare. Oops.

Bioderma Sebium or Crealine/Sensibio and BareMinerals Deep Cleansing Foam for cleansing, Origins A Perfect World for toning, and Sunday Riley Start Over eye cream

I alternate between the combinations of Sunday Riley Good Genes/Artemis oil and Amara Organics Vitamin C serum/Sunday Riley Luna oil throughout the week. Sunday Riley products are totally worth the money, in my opinion.

I have basically the same routine: I love Bioderma and Sunday Riley has really changed my skin. I usually don’t like “earthy” smells etc but the products are so high quality.

Remove all eye makeup with baby oil w/ aloe, cleanse face with Ole Henriksen African Red Tea Foaming cleanser, pat Fresh Black Tea Age Delay Eye Concentrate into undereye and upper lid, mix a good drop of Retinol Anti-aging serum with a good drop of Ole Henriksen Truth Serum together between my fingers and apply over my face and neck, let that do its thing for 10-15 minutes, then apply Hado Labo Skin Plumping Gel Cream moisturizer, followed with Tarte Maracuja Oil massaged in, Eos lip balm on my lips and I’m done!
Like I mentioned earlier, my daytime routine is simple’n easy compared to nighttime!

If I’m wearing foundation, I remove it with Cinq Mondes Flower Cleansing Balm and use Clarins bi-phase makeup remover for stubborn eye makeup. If I’m showering at night, I follow with a classic face wash (Eclos) or AHA cleansing cream (Dermadoctor). If not, I spritz coconut water toner after the cleansing balm and follow with a liquid BHA exfoliant (Paula’s Choice). Then I apply a clearing serum locally on problem areas (Radha Beauty), and a hyaluronic acid hydrating serum all over the face, neck and decollete (Regenfx). Every other day, I use a retinol moisturizer (Radha Beauty), alternating with an anti-oxidant night cream (Clinique). I also use a gel around my eyes (Lashem) and a rich balm on my lips.
If my skin is feeling/looking dry, I use Boscia Tsubaki Deep Hydration sleeping mask.

Wipe off my face makeup with a neutrogena face wipe (original blue flavor). If I am wearing heavy makeup, I will put some Simple micellar water on a large cotton round (with the exfoliating pad on one side) and use that.

Then I use the Aveeno brightening scrub. This is perfect for making my skin feel super clean.

For moisturizer, I use the Olay regenerist night recovery cream. I have used more expensive and less expensive but this is what works for me. It even works to attack the super cracked/dry skin on my elbows.

Philosophy Just Release Me Eye Makeup Remover + Neutrogena Hydrating Makeup Remover Towelettes + Philosophy Purity Facial Cleanser + Mario Bedescu Vitamin C Serum + Mario Badescu Seaweed Night Cream + C.O Bigelow My Favorite Night Blam

Christine, I’ve seen you on r/mua have you checked out r/skincareaddiction on reddit? Just wondered if it was something you’d be interested in.

LancĂ´me Bifacial makeup remover for eyes, LOccitane Cleansing Oil, Garnier Micellar water, LOccitane 5% Shea butter light moisturiser.

Christine, do you have any tips on dealing with dryness and flaky skin from prescription topicals? I have this issue with retin-A micro still even though I’ve been using it for years. What is your daytime skin routine? I have yet to find a good daily moisturizer that hydrates well while being safe for acne-prone skin.

Hi Annie,

I experienced dryness when I first started using Differin, when I was prescribed 2x a day (once in the AM, once in the PM). I remember it being bad enough that I stopped using it, and when my doctor asked how it was working, I told her why I stopped using it. She told me to reduce it to a few times a week and gradually build up. I did it that way, and it was much better!

I only get a little flakiness on the tip of my nose/nostrils, and I’m not even sure that’s any of the topicals at work (have always had dryness there). I usually use a heavier moisturizer as a spot treatment right there or an eczema cream (like Aveeno). Have you tried any of the hyaluronic serums as a hydrating serum for skin rather than relying on a moisturizer?

My morning routine: Cleanse with a Shiseido foaming cleanser, and then Clindamycin (prescription), Origins A Perfect World.

Yes, I use a hydrating serum with hyaluronic acid layered under my moisturizer. I even started taking a hyaluronic acid supplement for skin-hydrating/plumping benefits! 🙂 I probably do need to cut back my use a bit – I have gone a week without using it before without breakouts so I probably don’t need it daily anymore. I was actually prescribed a topical antibacterial like you use as well at first, years ago, but found just the Retin-A micro alone got rid of breakouts for me… have you tried seeing if just Differin alone works for you? (I just feel like poor exfoliation – solved by a retinoid – is the issue more often than bacteria!) Thanks so much for the reply! 🙂

I used Differin alone for awhile, and it worked to clear up smaller acne I had along my cheeks, but when I complained about my cystic acne around my chin/jawline, that’s when I got the clindamycin, which cleared it up completely!

Hi, Annie. My son had the same problem when he was on Differin. His dermatologist told him to use a thin coat of CeraVe lotion over the medicine. It worked.

Thanks! I have been cautiously trying the CeraVe cream lately which I found in a small squeeze tube size at CVS (more sanitary than the big tub). The other CeraVe moisturizers (PM or the lotion) were not hydrating enough for me.

Morning:
– Neutrogena Oil-Free Facial Wash
– Paula’s Choice Resist Anti-Aging Toner (pre-moisturizer, rather)
– Paula’s Choice Clinical Advanced Redness Relief around eyes (optional)
– Rosehip Oil around eyes
– La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo on spots
– Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture for Sensitive Skin mixed with three drops of Paula’s Choice Vitamin C Booster
– Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery Daily Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 around eyes
– Neutrogena Pure & Free Sunscreen SPF 50

Evening:
– Bioderma Sensibio (on days I wear make-up)
– Cleansing Oil, currently Kanebo Blanchir’s (on days I wear heavier facial make-up)
– Neutrogena Oil-Free Facial Wash
– Paula’s Choice Skin Balancing Pore-Reducing Toner (on days I use cleansing oil)
– Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid or Paula’s Choice 8% AHA gel (alternating)
– Paula’s Choice Clinical Advanced Redness Relief around eyes (optional)
– Rosehip Oil around eyes
– Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture for Sensitive Skin mixed with three drops of Paula’s Choice Vitamin C Booster, 1-6 drops (depending on skin condition and season) of Rosehip Oil, and a small amount of either Paula’s Choice Resist Ultra-Light Antioxidant Serum or Paula’s Choice Resist Retinol Serum (alternating)
– Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery Replenishing Moisturizer around eyes
– Castor Oil on eyelashes

I know this looks like A LOT, but it’s actually a lot simpler than it sounds. I swear there’s a method to the madness.

First I double cleanse with L’Occitane and Caudalie, then I tone with Eucerin and then I exfoliate with Paula’s Choice. Then I apply my Nescens serum, my Differin gel and my Clinique night cream.

1. Remove makeup with Boscia Makeup Breakup Cleansing oil
2. A few times a week, or if I’ve been breaking out a lot, I’ll go in with my Clairsonic and Neutrogena acne wash to exfoliate
3. I usually use an Aveeno moisturizer after that, but I got a deluxe sample of the Fresh Seaberry oil and I really like that as a moisturizer
4. My prescription acne gel, Ziana

Basically the whole thing is focused on not letting the acne gel irritating or drying out my skin! And I find the oils have helped me not break out as much as well.

Okay, this is a bit of a rigmarole!

– Face massage and cleanse with Dermalogica’s Precleanse. (I love oil/balm cleansers and am contemplating trying the Clinique Take the Day off and Banila Clean it Zero cleansing balms next!)
– Clarisonic Mia and rinse with tepid water
– If I’m wearing makeup or just need it, possibly follow up with a second, creamy cleanser (Just something gentle and inexpensive, I haven’t got a favorite yet) or a face mask/sheet mask depending on what I have and what my skin is like.
– Missha Time Revolution Clear Toner.
– Either Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid or 1% Retinol. I’ve tried prescriptions like Differin, Duac, and any number of prescription products, but unfortunately my skin is really sensitive to them!
– Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence (It doesn’t actually do anything but make my skin look more translucent somehow – but that’s enough for me!)
– Bioderma Cicabio Soothing Repairing Cream. (Or I’ll alternate with Benton Snail Bee High Content Steam Cream)
– Moogoo Vitamin C Eye Serum. (used as a face oil)
– Big, slathering layer of Moogoo lip balm (Either the original, or the strawberry one!)
– Moogoo MSM Cream, Full Cream and Palmer’s Shea Butter for my body if my skin is feeling dry.

I love my routine SO MUCH. It’s so relaxing, makes my skin feel so nice and I’m honestly so happy when I look in the mirror and see smooth, healthy skin. I’ve tried so many products over the years and am allergic to seemingly about half the things I try, but it’s been worth it and I love, love, love my routine. I only wish I’d known about these products started an abridged version of it at the age of thirteen, then I wouldn’t have a single acne scar, distended pore, or any PIH at all!

I have used every kind of makeup remover/cleanser known to man. I am not loyal to any brand for almost anything (I will use anything that works) except for Clinique’s Take the Day off Cleansing Balm. That’s all I have used for two years now, and I have stopped looking for the perfect cleanser/makeup remover. My problem skin has NEVER looked better. I wish I had discovered this years ago.

I’m trying to empty a lot of my foil packets and samples right now but my usual routine if I’ve worn makeup is:
1. Eye & brow makeup off using Avon moisture effective eye makeup remover
2. Face makeup off with a face wipe
3. Foaming cleanser & clarisonic
4. Serum (currently using clinique repairwear laser focus
5. Facial oil (currently using Nuxe huile prodigieuse)

Depends on whether I’m wearing a lot, a little or no makeup. The “full Monty” would be an eye makeup remover (Lacome or the Gemey Maybelline one I got in France) followed by an cleansing oil (MAC or Clinique) or solid oil/balm like Clarins or Clinique’s Take the Day Off Balm, then a “soap and water” cleansing with Ole Henriksen or PUR Minerals and a konjac sponge, though if I don’t use the sponge, I’ll follow with Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant. Then Alpha Hydrox Night ResQ or a serum or oil (or Clarins Lotus oil, which I like in summer for keeping my pores clear – sometimes I just rub it into my nose), Tarte or Clarins eye cream and a light moisturizer.

Remove makeup with Lancome Bifacil then Bioderma Sensibio H2O. Cleanse with Glam Glow Thirstymud Daily Hydrating Cleanser. Then Boots No. 7 Intense Advanced Serum and Trish McEvoy Retinol Eye Cream. Followed by either Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment or By Terry Huile De Rose Face Oil. 1 or 2 nights a week Trish McEvoy Correct & Brighten Professional Strength Multi-Acid Weekly Peel. 1 or 2 nights a week Trish McEvoy Instant Solutions Triangle of Light Eye Mask.

I have truly combination skin and have (finally) found a routine that works. Makeup comes off with the Boscia cool cleansing oil (HG status, for sure), I wash with Ole Henrickson On The Go cleanser and tone with the Neutrogena alcohol free toner. To chemically exfoliate I use either the First Aid Beauty pads or the 2% BHA from Paula’s Choice. Then I mix the PC’s hyaluronic acid booster with either an oil (argan or marula) or the Cocokind coconut oil serum (I’m already on my second bottle, I love it.)

I adore the Boscia cleansing oil, it’s so amazing! I’m always so surprised by how dang clean my skin gets when I use it to remove my makeup, there never feels like there’s any residue or anything, but it never irritates or dries my skin out, nor does it make my eyes sting or burn. I bought the little size bottle to try it, definitely repurchasing the large size when I run out.

Remove eye makeup with coconut oil. Wash with Origins Checks and Balances foaming cleanser. Apply Paula’s Choice Resist BHA, then Origins Night-a-Mins lotion (the oil-free version for summer; I use the heavier one in the winter). Lip balm!

I remove makeup with BioDerma and cleanse my face with Eve Lom cleanser using a muslin cloth. About two to three times a week I will use a mask, but change it up depending on my skin concerns. My most used masks include: Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud Mask/Pumpkin Mask/Cucumber Mask/Rose Stem Mask, Origins Charcoal Mask/Drink Up™ Intensive Overnight Mask, and Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Deep Pore Cleansing Mask. I then use Body Shop Vitamin C serum, Peter Thomas Roth Neuroliquid™ Volufill™ Youth Moisturizing Hydra-Gel (or Fresh Rose Moisturizer), Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cream (or Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Aging Cellular Eye Repair Gel), Rose Salve, and Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Oil. I put Body Shop Chocomania Body Butter all over my body. It is a process, but my skin has never felt and looked so nice. The Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Oil has made HUGE improvements to my skin. It is expensive, but worth it. After a couple of weeks of using it, the redness in my skin has decreased, my skin is softer, and I can throw on a Dr. Jart+ BB and run out the door. In the humid southern U.S. summer heat.

1. Remove eye makeup with whatever Clinique freebie I have, remove makeup with Paula’s Choice Skin Balancing Cleanser.
2. PC Resist Toner, PC Dark Spot Eraser 2% BHA to exfoliate, PC C15 Serum, Resist Retinol Serum, Skin Brightening Treatment, and Resist Hydrator on my eye area.

1. Wash off makeup with DHC Deep Cleansing Oil and hands
2. Cleanse face with Prescription Sulfacetamide Sodium wash and Clarisonic Mia 2
3. Apply Prescription Finacea Cream (Azaelic Acid)
4. Apply Prescription Tretinoin Cream (Retinoid)
5. Occasionally apply Cetaphil Oil Control Moisturizer
6. Occasionally apply cream for hyperpigmentation
7. Apply Clinique Superdefense Age Defense Eye Cream
8. Apply RapidLash

Remove makeup with The Body Shop Camomile Oil something, sometimes a Depend makeup wipe for lighter makeup and foundation. Cleanse with REN Clarimatte cleansing gel. Moisturise with ACO Face Night moisturiser for dry skin. Moisturise eye area with TBS Vitamin E eye cream. Moisturise some more with argan oil where needed and on acne scarring. Spot treat with tea tree oil on a q-tip. Last but not least, I moisturise my lips with the conditioner closest to me! Twice a week I use a face mask as well, currently I use LUSH Cupcake or Indian Healing Clay.

I love The Body Shop’s Chamomile Cleansing Oil and the Chamomile Waterproof Eye and Lip Makeup Remover. They’re my go-to for makeup removing.

Remove makeup with Clinique Take the day off oil, cleanse with Philosophy Purity, Neutrogena Ageless Intensive Anti wrinkle serum and moisturizer (night time), Josie Maran Argan Oil, Lip balm

1) Remove makeup if wearing, eye makeup with Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover and rest with Purlisse Pur-Delicate cleansing cream
2) Wash face with purlisse pur-delicate cleansing cream most days, or bareminerals Deep Cleansing Foam if face is particularly grimy
3) Moisturize face with Purlisse Pur-Moist moisturizer

If I have worn makeup, I’ll wipe it off first with a makeup remover (wipes for face if I have really done myself up, Nivea eye makeup remover for eyes) and then double-cleanse with an Eucerin gel cleanser and a soft face brush (the cheap non-electric kind you can get off eBay). Follow with Paula’s Choice Skin Balancing toner, Skin Perfecting 2% BHA lotion, Skin Balancing serum (currently trying out) and Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator.

My skin is oily and prone to breakouts so I try to be as diligent as possible about skincare (and also it gives a sense of structure to my periods of self-employment lol), and my regimen hinges on gentle but effective cleansing, toning and exfoliating. I do want to incorporate more targeted products like the serum I am trialling right now but I’m not yet sure what kind would be best!

Wow, I’m lazy.
— Neutrogena eye makeup remover pads
— Unscented Dr. Bronner’s soap on an EcoTools sponge
— Neutrogena moisturizer for sensitive skin
Sometimes I add:
— Josie Maran Argan Oil under eyes & on eyebrows, and/or
— DCL AHA Revitalizing Lotion 10

1) Cleanse my face (usually in the shower) with Lush’s Let the Good Times Roll polenta-based cleanser/exfoliator

2)serum- currently the La Roche-Posay Hydraphase one that I use in the morning as my normal evening serum (Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Oil) was not working well with the heat of summer)

3) eye cream- currently Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado as opposed to my usual Midnight Recover Eye (for the same reason as the serum)

4) moisturizer- currently I’m only using one every other night as my skin is so angry with summer, and I usually use my AM one (The Body Shop’s Vitamin C Moisturizer) but I usually use Kiehl’s Utra Facial Cream Intense or Kiehl’s Rosa Arctica Lightweight Cream depending on how dry my skin is.

Toner (optional step before serum)- I was using Kiehl’s Calendula alcohol-free one but I think it was irritating my skin (though it could have been heatwave related) so if anyone has any suggestions for an alcohol-free toner that’s good for super sensitive skin and redness, please let me know.

Love these posts, I’m so curious about people’s routines. At night I cleanse my skin with either Dove men’s face wash (with Clarisonic) or neutrogena grapefruit scrub (alone). Then I pat skin dry and use Estee Lauder Revitalizing Supreme in conjunction with Rosehip oil, claudalie oil or Argan oil (alternate the oils). The I use Shesheido Benefiance eye cream.

1-2 times a week I use a Retinol treatment under these (allowing it to dry for 10 min before moisturizing). I usually use Skincueticals 1.0 or Philosophy Miracle worker eye. Once in a blue moon I exfoliate with Algenist face scrub or PTR unwrinkle pads. Phew, sounds like a lot of work LOL but honestly only takes a few min a night.

Estee Lauder Take it away makeup remover
Skinn cosmetics sonic cleansing tool used with Peter Thomas Roth Anti aging gel cleanser
Peter Thomas Roth AHA pads
Peter Thomas Roth Night retinol serum
Switch btwn Mario Badescu eye cream, Rodial eye gel, or Skinn Dermalift eye

I cleanse, use a vitamin C serum, eye cream, moisturizer, facial oil (I switch between different single oils or blends such as argan, rosehip, jojoba, and more). I remove eye makeup with Lancome Bi-Facil makeup remover.

First I remove eye make-up with Maybelline Clean Express Waterproof make up remover. I like to do a double cleanse so I remove the rest of my make-up with coconut oil and a wash cloth then use Korres Greek Yogurt 3-in-1 cleansing emulsion or FAB Ultra Repair Wash. I tone with either Clinique Mild Clarifying Toner, Etude House Skin Malgeum Smoother, or FAB Facial Radiance Pads followed by Innisfree Olive Oil Mist. For under my eyes I use Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye. Next I use Hado Labo Anti-Aging Hydrator. Treat blemishes with Clindamycin and Differin. Then Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate followed by FAB Ultra Repair Cream. The last thing I put on before bed is lip balm.

Remove eye makeup with CVS brand oil-free eye makeup remover (the bi-phase one that’s a dupe for Neutrogena). Remove face makeup with same, then clean off any residue with cleansing wipe (also DVD brand dupe for Neutrogena’s). Cleanse face with CeraVe hydrating cleanser. Apply Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery toner, then BHA 2% lotion. Apply Paula’s Choice RESIST antioxidant serum mixed with C15 vitamin C Booster and RESIST Oil Booster. Follow up with RESIST Intensive Repair Cream. Twice a week I use the Paula’s Choice Clinical 1% Retinol serum before moisturizer and if I’m feeling especially dry (which seems to be all the time lately), I’ll apply the Skin Recovery mask and wear overnight. Can you tell I adore Paula’s Choice? It seems like a ton of steps, but I combine all the serum-type products together to both boost efficacy and save time. The largest amount of time feels like it’s devoted to makeup removal as I always wear waterproof eye makeup since I have seriously watery eyes.

Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Oil
Jordana Eye Makeup Remover (if needed)
Cerave Foaming Facial Cleanser
Tandazap (if needed)
Futurederm Time-Release Retinol 0.5

I take off eye makeup with bhcosmetics Eye & Lip Makeup Remover. Face: Wash with NuSkin 180° Face Wash, followed by Kueshi Revitalizing Toner. Next, if needed, I treat acne spots with Murad Acne Spot Fast Fix. Next, NuSkin Night Supply Nourishing Cream. Eyes: L’Oreal Renewal Eye Lash Serum. NuSkin Tru Face Line Corrector around the eyes. Lips: I recently started using City Lips Collagen Lip Plumping Treatment in Clear. It actually works to make the lips subtly, but noticeably, plumper. Before that I used regular lip balm.

Remove makeup with Julep Bare Face cleansing oil using my konjac sponge, tone with Clinique mild clarifying lotion, moisturize with Josie Maran Pure Argan Milk and Clinique Moisture Surge Intense, CeraVe eye repair cream. Sometimes I use Bioderma to remove my eye makeup as well. If I’m extremely dry or irritated I will add Peter Thomas Roth Firmx Growth Factor Extreme Neuropeptide Serum but I use it sparingly because it’s very expensive. I also use Bite Agave Lip Treatment every night on my lips. Add Palmers Cocoa Butter to my extremities and I’m ready for bed. Whew! It’s hell getting old! Ha!

I use an oil based cleanser and warm wash cloth to remove makeup, followed by a gel cleanser. I use an exfoliating toner then a moisturizing toner. Eye cream, facial oil (I love anything Sunday Riley), Sunday Riley Good Genes treatment (holy grail), Indeed Labs hydraluron serum, and moisturizer. Sometimes followed an overnight mask, but more often the Tata Harper Replenishing Nutrient Complex.
