Currently | My Go To Skin Care


I know this is a bit random but I thought maybe you would like to see what I use on a (sort of) daily basis. So this is basically what I see first thing in the morning when I walk up to my bathroom sink. This isn’t all that I have but I do tend to rotate my skin car products from weeks at a time(every 3 weeks or so). These products are just a mix of what I put on when I wake up, right when I get home from work and before I head to bed.

In no particular order(because these are all my favorites):

Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Oil If you are looking for something that will totally remove your makeup in a single wipe, this will probably your match. Although I prefer to lather this in my hands and apply it all over my face. This also makes removing heavy eye makeup ten times easier.

Philosophy ‘Purity Made Simple’ I play with a bunch of cleaners, but this one has got to be the most gentle one that I have tried. I usually use this when I wake up because there isn’t much dirt to clean out of. But even if it is SO gentle, this would work perfectly for people who have sensitive skin.

Jurlique Purely Age Defying Face Firming Oil I like to use this before I head to bed about 3-4 times a week after I shower and cleanse before I head to bed. Just 4 drops of this is more than enough. A little goes a long way! I also made a review on this a few months back, link here!

DSC09975VMV Hypoallergenics Superskin 2 Monolaurin Mandelic Acid Toner for Combination Skin If I had t compare this to other toners that I have used, this has got to be the most potent! The smell and most of all the actual product! This gets out dirt you never even know you had! I made a review of this previously, link here! Since this is quite strong, I tend to use this only 3-4 times a week!

Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser I don’t know what fascination I have with black skincare products… This cleanser comes out as sort of a black get but when you rinse it a bit with water it looks like any normal cleanser. When I like a skincare product that does what it says and doesn’t irritate my skin, I am all for it! So going to repurchase this one!

Miscellar Water War | Maybelline vs. Simple


A gentle makeup remover is definitely one of the most important things in a woman’s bathroom because it is the first thing they use at the of a loooong day. That feeling of grabbing a cotton pad and gently rubbing it all over your face is just….ugh. Refreshing! A lot of brands have started to come out with a bunch of their own versions of this and these are two that have stood out of all of them!

These two are quite similar in the bigger picture. I usually remove my makeup with a gentle cotton pad in all occasions. But the thing that probably separates these two have to be the price and a little bit of the smell. The Simple Micelllar Water has a bit of a cucumber smell mixed with something else that I can’t really point out. While the Maybelline Micellar Water has no scent at all. Which can either be a good or bad thing.

I noticed that the Simple brand stung a little when I tried to remove my eye makeup. But nothing super painful that I couldn’t handle. But with the Maybelline brand nothing…

These two are more on the drugstore price end but one is definitely cheaper than the other. Can you guess which one is it? Its the Maybelline!


If you are looking for any reason to not use this, there pretty much isn’t… it’s probably the cheapest and most gentle way of removing makeup. I have been using this for over a month and I have gotten no pimples or random spots.

Current Nightly Skincare Routine


Skin care is something I wished I had practiced earlier in my life, especially back in high school. I thought then that it was unnecessary and a waste of money. But to my surprise, I was wrong. Taking good care of your skin, is just as important as taking care of your body. So start early before you see the effects of ageing and sun damage(because I am seeing it as of 22 years old).

After a long stressful day at work/school, cleansing my face would definitely one of the things that make me look forward to coming home. There is just a sublime feeling of wiping all that oil and makeup of your face. I can’t explain it. You just have to try it out for yourself with products that best fit your skin.

I first Bioderma Sensibio H20 with a flat cotton pad to wipe off my makeup from the day. I prefer to use this because it resembles more of a miscellar water so I find it easy to remove
dsc00169off my skin gently and down my neck(because I put some bronzer down there). The Sebamed Clear Face Deep Cleansing Toner is one that I find removes even more (dirt) of my face because sometimes(most of the time) a makeup remover isn’t enough to clean it out totally. I also just put some on a flat cotton pad then wipe it all over my face but NO ON MY EYES.

I usually put a dollop of the Jurlique Nutri-Define Refining Foaming Cleanser on my finger tip, spread it on my hands and run it under water. That’ll make it all foamy and you’re ready to lather it all over your face! I like that it has no strong scent to it!

Can you tell that I am a big fan of Jurlique? After rinsing my face witht he cleanser, I use Jurlique Rose Water Balancing Mist all over my face to just rehydrate my skin after a long day! And the rose scent does help too!

The First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Hydra-Firm Sleeping Cream has got to be my favorite ever night cream. I find that it has an especially thick consistency and is very hydrating. It will definitely be a sad day when I run out of this one! Lastly, the ORIGINS Eye Doctor Moisture Care  is an eye cream that is cucumber infused(or somewhat). This feels really good if you keep it refrigerated before applying, but not everyone has a refrigerator in their bathroom!(I wish I did)


What’s your nightly skin care routine?
