My Current Skincare Routine

As I was looking back on past beauty posts I've written here on the blog, I realized that I've never done a skincare routine- which I found shocking! So today I'm sharing my current skincare routine.

Before I begin I'd like to give you a bit of background on my skin type and skin concerns just for reference. I have sensitive, oily, and acne-prone skin with hyperpigmentation from acne scars.

When it comes to skincare I like using gentle and simple products that use quality ingredients on my skin. So the products featured in this post are just that and ones I've tried, tested, and gotten my skin's approval.

On the days that I'm wearing makeup, I will use this Derma E Universal Cleansing Balm first to remove my makeup. This product is a cleansing balm that melts on contact and transforms into a lightweight cleansing milk that dissolves makeup, dirt, and excess oil build-up without overly drying the skin.

I take about a quarter-size amount of this cleansing balm and rub it onto my fingers to melt the product then massage it all over my face to melt the makeup. Then I take a reusable cotton round to wipe away the makeup. What I love about this product is that it gently and effectively removes makeup and does so without irritating my skin or causing breakouts.

After using the Universal Cleansing balm, I'll cleanse my skin with this Derma E Ultra Hydrating Alkaline Cloud Cleanser, and if I'm not wearing makeup I'll skip the previous step and start here. This foaming cleanser is deeply hydrating and gently removes makeup, impurities, and excess oil without stripping the skin of its healthy moisture. 

I take about two pumps of this and massage it all over my face then rinse it off with lukewarm water. I love this cleanser because it leaves my skin feeling clean, supple, and hydrated. It doesn't leave a film on the skin nor does it make the skin feel tight.

I use this Derma E Microdermabrasion Scrub once a week right after cleansing to exfoliate. This scrub has a fine-textured crystal blend to buff away dullness and smooth the look of fine lines, wrinkles, roughness, and acne scars.

I'm always really nervous when using scrubs because most tend to irritate my skin but this one does not. The texture is so fine and non-abrasive that it's suitable for sensitive skin. After using this I experience zero irritation and my skin feels so soft and smooth. It also smells so lovely, like citrus, from the citrus oil in the formula.

After cleansing or exfoliating I moisturize with this First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration. This moisturizer is formulated with colloidal oatmeal, shea butter, and allantoin to hydrate, calm, and soothe skin.

I actually bought this for my husband because he has very dry skin, and he didn't use much of it because he could care less about skincare, so I tried it and fell in love with it. This tube is actually almost completely empty which explains all of the indentations on it from trying to squeeze the last bit of product out, haha. But what I like about this moisturizer is that it doesn't feel greasy, it absorbs onto my skin quickly, it wears well under makeup, and it's nice and hydrating.

For eye cream, I use a pea-sized amount of this CeraVe Eye Repair Cream which helps to reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness while the ceramides in the formula help to restore the skin's barrier.

I like how this feels under the eyes as it's non-irritating, hydrating, and a bit on the thicker side but it's still lightweight. This sits well under my makeup so long as I use a small amount.

Once a week I'll use this Flower Beauty Petal Pout Lip Scrub to exfoliate my lips. This lip scrub is formulated with ultra-fine sugar crystals, coconut oil, castor seed oil, and cocoa butter for a smooth kissable pout. I like this scrub because it gently exfoliates and nourishes my lips, and tastes and smells so yummy.

The final step in my skincare routine is to go in with a lip balm, my favorite is this Dr. Bronner's Pppermint Organic Lip Balm because it's ultra-hydrating and smells so good, it's almost therapeutic.


These are all the skincare products that I use to care for my sensitive, oily, and acne-prone skin and all of which get my skin's stamp of approval.
