so this is something i've been meaning to do for a longgg time, because i am an absolute product addict. 

this is, basically, my skincare routine daily. i know it looks like a lot, but really, it takes about 10 minutes all up, and makes such a difference.

naturally, i have combination skin (it used to be very oily as a teenager, but can be quite dry, especially in winter). i find that these products keep it in check, but i still have concerns with redness - rosacea runs in my family. otherwise, i have pale skin that doesn't break out too much, except when my diet changes or i forget to cleanse after exercising. 

(i'm also going to post one on my makeup/beauty regime as well)

this is it, in a nutshell:

cleanse and scrub
1 – emerginc kombucha cleanser: i use this with cold water as my morning cleanser. it's a very gentle product that gives a surprisingly deep clean.

2 – korres brightening cleanser and scrub: korres make the best cleanser products i have found, hands down. i ditched my two-step process for this 2 in 1, which is just as effective, and i use it as my in-shower cleanser at night. the difference in my skin after i switched was noticeable, even after using good products for years. i used to use their white tea cleanser and pomegranate scrub – the white tea cleanser was the best thing i’ve ever done for my skin, it cleared up all my blemishes (except the ones from eating poorly, i still get those stray blemishes along my jaw line if i’ve had a lot of chocolate). i’d recommend the white tea cleanser for anyone who doesn’t like scrubs/already uses a good one.

3 – philosophy microdelivery mini peel: not an everyday product, unless you want it to be. i would recommend it if you don’t like the feel of normal scrubs, or you need a really deep cleansing exfoliator. i use it once a week after using the korres cleanser/scrub and before moisturising. it uses lactic acid and really gets deep into your skin, so don’t expose your face to the sun or use any harsh products immediately afterwards.

moisturise
4 – kiehl’s ultra facial moisturiser: the best lightweight moisturiser around. i have problems with a lot of moisturisers, the majority make my skin feel even drier than before i used it. this one feels amazing, but can be quite oily (i think you can get oil free versions, but that might be the cream). i use it at night straight out of the shower. the bottle with added sunscreen is good, but doesn’t smell great and won’t protect you on from any prolonged sun exposure.

5 – kiehl’s ultra facial cream: similar to the ultra facial moisturiser, but in a thicker and less oily form. this is great for cold climates, and i find that small amounts of it work in hot climates too – especially when you want to reduce oiliness. my only complaint is that it doesn’t go as far as the moisturiser, so you have to replace the tub more often. i use this one in the morning after the emerginc cleanser & prep.

6 – kiehl’s clearly corrective deep moisture clarifying cream: i’m actually using a whitening night cream from indonesia at the moment, but this is my next purchase. if you buy any other kiehl’s products, ask the sales assistant if you can grab a sample of this. it's made mostly for asian consumers, but if you have pale skin like i do, it helps to even your skin tone and remove redness. i usually put this on just before going to bed, a few hours after using the kiehl’s moisturiser (but that’s just because i’m a freak for always being moisturised).

prep
7 – hydraluron: i use this in the morning, under my moisturiser. hydraluron increases your skin’s ability to retain hydration from your moisturiser – it’s a bit of a weird product that doesn’t feel like it’s doing anything, but after a week or two, i definitely noticed a difference.

8 – nude by nature miracle serum: this product is meant to hydrate and reduce redness, and it does to an extent, but i’d like to find one that’s a little more powerful for my uneven skin tone (suggestions welcome...)

9 – ole henriksen protect the truth 50+ sunscreen: i struggled for a long time to find a facial sunscreen that wasn’t too oily or heavy, and didn’t dry out my skin. this stuff feels moisturising, lightweight, and doesn’t smell like sunscreen at all. my fair skin thanks it, especially in the australian heat – i definitely need the 50+ protection. it's expensive for a sunscreen, but i’d definitely say it’s worth it. a little goes a long way with this stuff.

happy to recommend stuff/answer questions :)
