  • KORRES-Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cream Cleanser
    STEP
    1
    In the mornings, I like to use a more gentle cleanser to get off any dirt I picked up overnight and because I'm oily. This one is so lovely-creamy texture and doesn't foam much at all. My skin feels really nourished after I'm done.
  • KORRES-Hydra Biome Probiotic Superdose Face Mask With Real Greek Yoghurt
    STEP
    2
    While I've been in quarantine, this has been amazing to use in the mornings. It soothes irritation and redness and has a spot of exfoliation going for it but overall it's incredibly hydrating. I keep it on for up to a hour and it sinks into my skin really well to the point where I forget I have something on. When I wash it off though, my skin is BABY soft.
  • Klairs-Online Only Supple Preparation Facial Toner
    STEP
    3
    This is my morning toner and I technically use the unscented version of it. It's thicker than most toners and very easy to slap onto the skin in a hurry.Whatever hydration and moisture I lost in the cleansing phase is replenished with this.
  • Dr. Jart+-Peptidin™ Radiance Serum With Energy Peptides
    STEP
    4
    For my serum, I always use a peptide in the morning. It helps plump my skin up and this one in particular helps my skin wake up. I'm perpetually tired ok? I need a boost to look awake and radiant whether it's a zoom call or in person.
  • SEPHORA COLLECTION-Brightening Eye Cream – Hydrate & Depuff
    STEP
    5
    This affordable little eye cream is easy to apply and gets the job done of hydrating my eye area. I go simple with eye creams since even the most expensive one can't undo that I only got 5 hours of sleep the night before.
  • Good Molecules-Wake Up Eye Serum
    STEP
    6

    I seal in the eye cream with this serum for an added boost of depuffing. This serum contains caffeine to also help me look more awake.
  • Facetory-Artemesia Light Balancing Facial Creme
    STEP
    7

    A perfect product for the summer time-the artemesia extract in this cream is great for sebum control. It's a light formula and keeps me dewy throughout the day.
  • Black Girl Sunscreen-Black Girl Sunscreen SPF 30
    STEP
    8

    This SPF is moisturizing enough on it's own but great for any season. Best of all there's no white caste!

Ohh do you find that an eye serum works better for you than an eye cream?

I just clicked thru to see the details for the Sephora eye cream and saw it has silica in it :/ not sure how I feel about that..!

Hahaha, this is awesome. Lovely morning routine! Never tried Korres products but they seem to have positive reviews all around.

I love the stuff from their Greek yogurt line. They have a Vitamin C brightening sleep mask that I really like too!

Good to know! I'll need to check them out 🙂 Given the thoroughness of your morning routine, I would love to see and request your night-time routine as well... 🙏

Wow, this is a pretty thorough routine! I'm taking note of the eye serum. What do you do for exfoliation?

The eye serum is great! Definitely check it out! I'll have to post my exfoliation routine at night. I do a couple different things lol but most of the time I do chemical exfoliation.

ohhh love your routine! what's the consistency of the Sephora eye cream? I remember when the Sephora line got side eyed for looking too much like Drunk Elephant packaging when it first launched lol.

You know what, it does look like DE lol! The consistency isn't too heavy so I've never had to spend too much time applying it to my eye area. I really like it. It moisturizes the eye area enough for me and is affordable!

Facetory, that's a brand i haven't heard of! How did you hear about them and how do you like the product?

Facetory is great and has subscription boxes for sheet masks you can have delivered monthly-I've been using it for that purpose for over a year. They recently started including skincare ( and making skincare) products to sample with every box and this cream of theirs was included in one! They're great overall and the cream is nice and lightweight for the daytime.

whaaat, theres a sheet mask sub box? hmmm.. may have to look into that one. lol

Hahaha, I love your philosophy! You have a thorough morning routine, super impressed, I can barely put on sunscreen in the morning 😂
