Skincare Routine: Overboard? Possibly!

I thought I'd post my current skincare routine for those interested, and also with the intention of doing updates in the future, when I'm using different products. Aah, also, I think I may be using too many products at the moment. Talk about addicted. Below is my skincare routine at its most comprehensive. Sometimes I will skip a product or two. I'm not a total loon!

FACE

MORNING
St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Cleanser
Clinique 7 Day Scrub / Garnier PureActive Blackhead Clearing Scrub (alternating, use every 2-3 days)
Alpha-H Gentle Daily Exfoliant
Botani Olive Skin Serum Anti-Ageing Natural Moisturiser (few drops)
Olay Total Effects Anti-Ageing Cream
Clinique All About Eyes Serum
Dermalogica Clean Start Smart Mouth Lip Shine


NIGHT
TN Dickinson's Witch Hazel
The Jojoba Company Absolute Serum
Dr. LeWinns Line Smoothing Complex S8 Double Intensity Night Cream
Clinique All About Eyes
Carmex Original Lip Balm


BODY

St. Ives Moisturizing Olive Scrub
The Body Shop Wild Cherry Puree Body Lotion
The Body Shop Strawberry Body Butter



Does anyone know why it's called Clinique 7 Day Scrub? Are you only supposed to use it every 7 days? For 7 days in a row? I'm confused!

  1. God some days when the kids are being ratty I wash my face in water and put on sunblock, thats it. LOL

    But I have a good night time routine so that it helps with not doing anything in the morning.

  2. LOL! It's great you have a good night time routine. I used to not even remove my makeup, so Im loving the pamering of a night cream :)

  3. I'm in awe of the sheer volume of product :) I use cleansing wipes and moisturiser in the morning, then foaming cleanser and night cream in the evening. That's about it :S Occasionally a toning spray, or eye cream (which I usually avoid because I get hayfever all the time and rub it onto my eyeballs). Oh, and a couple of times a week I use an exfoliant on my face.

  4. Haha! Your skincare routine sounds perfect actually. I'm probably going to break out from all the different products, but I'm also trialling some of these products for review, and trying to finish others off!
