Skin Care Routine 2018

Happy Sunday, y’all! Today I’ll be discussing the products I am currently using in my skin care routine along with my thoughts and holy grails I’ve been using for years. It’s pretty simple and easy, nothing too extreme at all. 

Pacifica Quinoa Sensitive

The first thing I do, every time, is use this Pacifica face wash and this product is cruelty-free and I see a difference in my skin when I use it and when I don’t use it. It’s gentle and makes my skin feel soft and more alive.


Secondly, I use either toners and while I do like the L’Oréal toner, I prefer the Clinique one because I have been using this exact toner for years and is one of my holy grails to remove any kind of yucky grime and dirt that may still be on the skin.

Clinique Skincare

Then I use these two cream products and I love these products and both help my skin in different ways. The moisturizing lotion has been another holy grail that I’ve been using for the last 4+ years and it does help my skin and the smaller product is a new product I’ve added to my routine and I love it for the summer because it hydrates my skin and is a cool gel product, but it doesn’t make my face look greasy/oily and keeps my face hydrated for a good couple of hours. Both of these products are great and if you have dry skin, I recommend trying these in a sample size to see if it works for you, if you’re interested in trying these items.

Face Masks

Lastly, if I decide to not use any form of moisturizers, I use face masks to give my skin some more life and brightening it up, especially if my skin really feels super dry and dull. I used to not be a big fan of face masks, but I’ve seen that they can make a difference and I do notice my skin feeling better once I’ve finished with the mask.

So this was my simple and easy skincare routine that I’ve been doing for the last couple of months and I am glad I only have to use a minimal amount of skincare and still give my skin some love without needing to use more than 10 products.

I hope you enjoyed this post and I hope your Sunday is a great one! 🙂
