Updated: Nighttime Skincare Routine

Wowzas, it's been too long y'all!!  Pray you and your fam are healthy and safe against COVID19.

I turned 30 during this pandemic, so it's been a weird month! I was asked about my skincare on Instagram, so thought I'd post an update here as well, in case more people ask or are interested. 

I currently do my skincare routine every night after I shower or before I go to bed (I'm under a stay-at-home order, so I don't shower everyday, haha! BTW, I have combination/normal skin, and have not experienced an allergic reaction from the products mentioned. DISCLAIMER: I am merely a skincare hobbyist and not a certified professional.

So here's an update on my current skincare products:

Serum Battle!

e.l.f. versus Beauty Dreams Paris

Both serums were bought at a discount.   


My sister** didn't like either serums, so I'm giving them a try since I finished up The Biossance Revitalizer. 

I like the Vitamin C serum over the Soothing serum because it smells better, absorbs faster, and felt more refreshing, which is perfect for the summer heat.

**(Yoshi): e.l.f. is my go-to when trying new products for make-up, so I figured their praised skincare products would be a dream! Unfortunately this serum made my skin bumpy and slightly inflamed... Ceased use after two morning applications :(

Lancome Facial Cleanser Review

Inherited another skincare product from Yoshi (her skin is sensitive skin prone to acne, so it's picky).  I have combination skin!

http://www.lancome-usa.com/creme-mousse-confort/1000197.html
http://www.lancome-usa.com/creme-mousse-confort/1000197.html

Pros:  Adequately removes non-waterproof make-up, dirt, and oil/sebum

Cons:  Doesn't foam like a foaming cleanser.  Strong rose scent.

Verdict:  Will not purchase again, but may give to my mother (mature skin).
