Ever heard of a saying about how we have only one skin and we should take care of it (or something along those lines)? Well, I am one of those people who strongly believes so. This skin has to go through thin and thick and we need to do a little bit of work to help it.
I had few problems with my skin such as acne and other common problems (if you didn’t, you are one damn lucky munchkin). Also, skin tends to get very oily in my T-zone and it is veeeery annoying. But my eyelids and under eyes zone get very dry sometimes, so it’s very hard to pick up products that are good for my skin.
Not sure what your skin type is? Take this quiz to find out! Also, it will give you few tips at the end.
I get up around 6:30 a.m. and start off my morning by rinsing my face with warm water, then I grab NOREVA Exfoliac Foaming Gel and massage my skin with it and wash it off after. This stuff leaves my skin soft and washes it perfectly. However, it’s on a more pricey side but it is worth the money (and I am not one to LIE).

Please excuse the packaging, I use it a lot 🙂
Next, I moisturize my skin with GARNIER Nordic Moisture Match Cream for oily skin. This cream hydrates my skin all day and the formula is very light, so it doesn’t leave your skin feeling weird or anything. I leave it be for a few minutes.

After my skin takes in all the cream, I start applying Exfoliac NC Gel by NOREVA on any blemishes or bigger pimples (if I have any, and let’s face it, I most certainly have that one big zip on my upper lip…). This gel helps with healing and prevents pimples growing for me. This thing is also pricey but I am not regretting it at all.

By the way, if you want me to do full skincare routine post about how I clear my skin from acne, let me know. And I will gladly do it 🙂
Back to point now! This is all for my morning (I know it’s ridiculously short one but due to my horrible skin type, I can’t use many products at once because I will get breakouts and they are not easy to deal with). Now to the night routine!
In the evening (about 9:30 p.m. usually), I use my L’Oreal Paris Gentle Waterproof Eye & Lip Makeup Remover to remove any kind of makeup on my lips and eyes. I use this one because it is really gentle and my eyes are very sensitive (as I said earlier). Also, it is non-greasy and doesn’t leave any greasy kind of feeling on your skin which I am not a fan of.

After it, I clean the rest of my makeup (if I have any that day) with the same Exfoliac Foaming Gel I already talked about. It washes off everything, foundation, primers, shadows, blushes, you name it.
Then, two times a week I use GARNIER Pure Active 3 in 1 wash/scrub/mask. It is for oily skin with impurities and it seriously does THE job! One time I use it like a scrub and the next time like a mask (usually leave if for 3-5 minutes and wash it off).

And again, I put myExfoliac NC Gel on my blemishes and any kind of pimples for the night. And after thaaaaat I go to sleep 🙂 Yes, that’s all. I don’t use any kind of night cream because I don’t want to overdo my skin with things. The gel is already enough for me.
This is the routine I do everyday for now. I like to change things a bit, so my skin won’t get used to some products and they would still do their job. If I change anything, I’ll post a new updated skincare routine version 🙂
What are your morning/night routines like?
Have you got any products that you just can’t go without?
