My skincare update

My skincare routine has undergone a major overhaul since the last skincare post I did. I have fallen in love with Clarins again since digging some moisturizers out of hibernation and discovering they solved my dry skin issues once and for all. When they finished recently I replaced them with the Clarins HydraQuench Cream and Santal Face Treatment Oil. I am supposed to use the treatment oil every night for a month to sort out my dehydrated skin, but I am dying to give my new Night Repair a good run first. I can’t use both because I’m sure I would be reducing the efficacy of the one I use second. Such a dilemma… Maybe the skincare experts reading this could let me know.

Morning skincare routine.

I have switched to a REN cleansing balm at night too, which has been a bit life changing. I donated my Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery to my mom because it wasn’t really making much difference to my skin, and instead have some new serums in my line-up including the Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Serum (I don’t have the retinol version though) for the mornings and Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair II for the evenings.

Evening skincare routine

I have also gone a bit toner mad, to round things off, and now use two Clarins toners for the night and alternate between the chamomile toning lotion and Lush/Hey Gorgeous toners in the mornings. The only thing left from my old routine is the Dr Hauschka Cleansing Milk which I use in the mornings and still love. You can see I am still very much inclined towards the ‘natural’ or plant-based products, and everything is cruelty-free except the Advanced Night Repair, so I’m still feeling more or less comfortable on that front.
