Morning routine for Friday I am one of those people who don’t wash their face with cleanser every morning as I’ve learned that my sensitive skin can’t always handle it. I have a day off today, which is why I have time to make a post on my AM routine. The lack of time (I usually wake up at 6 am and leave in 15-20 minutes) as well as my boring routine in the morning are the reasons why I normally don’t post AM routines. I’m also not big on switching products daily, and have recently been purchasing new products merely as my old ones have run out. .
After I splash my face with water and tap my face dry with a muslin cloth, I spray on some @lumenefinland Lähde Facial Mist. I wasn’t a big fan of this when I first started using it back in June, but then again, I don’t have much experience with face mists, so I might have just been unaware of its benefits. 🤷🏻♀️ I can now safely say, that it’s a really pleasant face mist, very cooling and calming.
I then use the @clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream I bought this week in travel size (15 ml) after using a sample for 3 days. It was recommended to me instead of the DDML or DDMG as this is meant for dry skin but it’s oil-free. Unfortunately, it’s sold in a jar, which I hate hate hate, which is why I bought this 15 ml travel size. I was told I could use this a an eye cream, which I did this morning. But for the price range, I don’t know if I want to be wasting it. Might just have to buy a new eye cream instead.
Lastly, sunscreen. This @vichynordic Idéal Soleil SPF 50 sunscreen for dry skin (“skin-perfecting velvety cream”) is also fairly new and I’m not yet sure how I feel about it. I don’t think I prefer this one over the @larocheposay Anthelios XL SPF 50, which I’ve used for years and have reviewed in July. This is however, the only sunscreen I have at the moment. It leaves my skin quite shiny, which I don’t mind to certain extent (gotta get that dewy look somehow, you feel me), but I seriously look like I slathered myself in oil. The look I’m trying to go for is dewy skin, not a dolphin. So we’ll see how this works out.
Hope you have wonderful Friday today! - 1 hour ago
