  • La Roche-Posay-Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser
    STEP
    1
    This gentle cleanser is perfect for the morning after thoroughly cleansing the night before. A good daily wash for sensitive and dryer skin.
  • Kiehl's Since 1851-Blue Herbal Acne Cleanser Treatment
    STEP
    2
    Used every other day to address acne. I get my Salicylic Acid with Frankincense & Ginger root -- smells SO refreshing in the morning.
  • Kiehl's Since 1851-Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol Free Toner
    STEP
    3
    This toner is like a goldilocks for combination skin as it's not too harsh, but not too gentle. I love the calming effect of the Calendula extract and the smell reminds me of chamomile tea with honey.
  • SPF Rx-Dual C + E + F Antioxidant Power Serum
    STEP
    4
    spf rx dual c + e + f antioxidant power serum
    This is a recent add & has been a game-changer for me. The Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate with the Vitamin E and Ferulic Acid provides a stable Vitamin C while serving as an antioxidant. Win-win!
  • THE FITISH-dewing IT CBD Moisturizer
    STEP

    This CBD moisturizer has anti-inflammatory properties and leaves my skin silky & smooth--a little goes a long way.
  • COOLA-Classic Face Spf 30 - Cucumber
    STEP
    6
    Coola has some of the best sun care products. All organic and doesn't leave the face feeling greasy or leave a white cast.

What do you think is the benefit of this serum vs. a traditional vitamin C serum?

Probably that it’s a good starter serum in that it contains other vitamins!

💯 I commend you for having the discipline and patience to apply all these products! I can barely get myself to wake up and get my children to school in the morning, haha. 😂

Same! LOL I’m not the best but I actually follow her IG page @skincare.geek and got more into it with product reviews and stuff :)

So you use one or the other cleansers? Not both at the same time, right?
  • Post Owner

I use the first one daily, then the second one is every-other-day after the first (double cleanse) since I have acne-prone skin but I focus the second one on my jawline & chin since that's where I break out most!

Thanks for this daytime routine! Super interesting products I'm learning about, especially the sunscreen and vitamin c serum. Would you be open to sharing your PM routine as well?

Thank you for sharing ❤️ does the Coola sunscreen have any fragrance? Also does it flake or ball up under foundation/make-up?
  • Post Owner

Coola has both scented and unscented options and the ones I use are scented but I don't believe they add any harsh chemicals for "fragrance" since my skin is very sensitive to that and it's an organic formula. For the finish, since my combo skin on the dryer side, I don't have any issues with it pilling/balling up as it soaks in nicely. They do have other finishes like cremes, matte, and oils as well if that is a concern for you. :-)

🙋 Also pretty curious about the moisturizer -- and how it's working for you!

Let's just say I'm on my 3rd jar :-) I did two trials to test how it reacted to my hormonal/cystic acne (the true test) and both times it calmed my skin and sped up the healing process. You can see the before & after photos on my instagram @skincare.geek as well! It's just a really nice feeling and natural smelling moisturizer.

I'm intrigued by the serum – is it a vitamin C serum? How does this compare to other vit c serums you've tried out? Also... did you upload your night-time routine, because I'd be very interested in seeing it.
  • Post Owner

Yes, it's a Vit C serum and I love it--I'm not sure what the concentration % is but the Vit C is listed 3rd in the Ingred list and my sensitive skin is happy. I have tried another Vit C serum from an Amazon seller, but I learned it wasn't the same quality as it had oxidized (turned orange) within a few days. I will definitely upload my night-time routine soon :-) thank you thank you

Amazon can be such a black hole when it comes to skincare! My friend was sent a fake product -- and I vowed never to use Amazon for skincare purchases again. Ugh. I'll be waiting for your night time routine. :)

Sadly, it really is! LOL - I will only order for my basics/drugstore where I know the seller is legitimate otherwise it's such a gamble!

LOVE this routine. Can you speak more to the CBD moisturizer? How has it helped your combo skin? I'm interested in CBD skincare but afraid they'll just break me out...🤨
  • Post Owner

Thank you! I really like the Fetish moisturizer to calm the inflammation when I do have breakouts and I have seen that topical CBD, in general, has been proven to help with psoriasis and eczema as well. For breakouts, I depend on salicylic acid and sometimes benzoyl peroxide to fight it but this moisturizer definitely helps in that healing process and doesn't cause the acne.

Wonderful, thank you. Do you have a spot treatment that you use for acne problems?
  • Post Owner
Commented 2 months ago
Yes! I normally treat at night using a Benzoyl peroxide or drying lotion so I'll be sure to include spot treatments in my PM routine. Thanks for the thought!
