My Current Skincare Routine - Day
Dermaction by Watsons Gentle Skin Cleanser, Sephora Triple Action Cleansing Water, Murad Hydrating Toner
Dermaction by Watsons Gentle Skin Cleanser - I bought this in Manila, it's basically like a generic version of Cetaphil. I apply it to my face in gentle, circular motions and rinse it off. I usually only use this when my skin feels particularly greasy in the morning, otherwise I generally use the Sephora cleanser.
Sephora Triple Action Cleansing Water - Another great cleansing water that is slightly less expensive than Bioderma (although it's not as good at getting off waterproof eye makeup!) My skin is usually pretty OK and clean in the morning, so I usually just swipe this over my face to ensure all the traces of the Exfoliac toner is gone. The Exfoliac contains AHAs which can make your skin sensitive to the sun, so you always wanna make sure it's all off in the morning!
Murad Hydrating Toner - I don't really use this just in the morning. I mainly use it before makeup because it hydrates and gives my skin a pretty 'dewy' look. It also smells a bit citrusy, so it's a great pick-me-up!
Clarins Eye Contour Balm, Clean and Clear Shine Control Daily Facial Moisturizer, Hawaiian Tropic Oil Free Faces Sheer Sunscreen, Nivea Sun Collagen Protect Daily Face Fluid, Garnier Light Eye Roll-On
The Clarins eye balm - the same one that I use at night. It soaks in so wonderfully and is great under concealer.
Clean and Clear Shine Control Daily Facial Moisturizer - this is basically another multi-use product for me! I wear it whenever my skin feels a little dry. Funny how I've gone back to using products that are geared towards teenagers! haha
Hawaiian Tropic - This used to be my favorite sunscreen, until I realized it didn't have any UVB protection. However, I still use it because it's super light and doesn't 'sweat'. I generally wear this on my quick five minute drives to the gym.
Nivea Protect Daily Face Fluid - One of my favorite sunscreens right now. However, I've found that I do get a bit of a whiteish cast now that I have a bit of a tan, so it works better when I warm up my face with bronzer. It also sweats a bit so I don't usually wear it to the gym. I mainly wear it if I'm gonna be at the mall or driving around in my car (with the AC on)
So there are all my skin care products! I'll probably change it up in a few months, but of course, I'll let you guys know! Here's a link to my night time skincare products, if you guys wanna read that :)
