I think skincare is often times the most neglected part of self care. I know, for myself, it is the first thing that gets cut out of my routine because of either time or money. I’m rushing in the morning or too tired in the evening. Or I just don’t have the funds to pay for all the things all at once! But, my skin takes a lot of abuse during the day and needs care…and more importantly, I also need to take 5 minutes and invest in myself.
I have used a lot of skincare throughout the years at different price points and with various results. My current routine is budget friendly and as finances allow, I like to include a few high end products.
Neutrogena Face Wipes – https://amzn.to/2nfBMnl
Because I wear a lot of make up, I do a double cleanse of my face, so I start here. And on those days when I don’t wear any make up, I might just use the wipes before moving on to the moisturizer.
Olay Revitalizing Foaming Cleanser– https://amzn.to/2Oh3VG5
There is nothing better than taking a hot wash cloth and wiping off the grime of the day with this foaming cleanser. It is so refreshing!
Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Moisturizer (Day)– https://amzn.to/2OJipj8
I live in a dry climate, so it is important for me to moisturize my skin. This day cream has SPF and has a lighter texture so it wears well under makeup. This Wrinkle Repair line by Neutrogena has retinol (helps trigger collagen production) and hyaluronic acid (helps hold moisture).
Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Moisturizer (Night)– https://amzn.to/2MnZF7r
This night cream has a heavier texture and goes deeper into the pores while the skin repairs during the night.
Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream– https://amzn.to/2Ohc3X8
The skin around the eyes is so incredibly delicate, so it is essential to use an eye cream. This particular one is lightweight and easily absorbs. I put it on in the morning and in the evening.
To round out my routine, I have one luxury indulgence! I use the Jo Malone body creme before bed. I bought it for myself for my birthday and it has lasted for about 5 months of regular evening use. It has been absolutely worth the price not only because the product is deeply moisturizing and the fragrance is divine, but because I look forward to using it every evening. It is the perfect way to close out my day.
I would love for you to join me on Instagram where I am sharing all the products that I am loving lately! And let me know in the comments below what you are using!
