The Lipstick League – Week of 9.28.15
Question of the Week: How many skincare products do you use every day?
EauMG’s Answer: I get asked this a lot and I don’t know the answer. I actually use a lot and that’s why I avoid this question. It also changes weekly because of masks and treatments. But, here we go. Morning routine: cream cleanser, acid toner, eye serum, eye cream with SPF, BHA lotion/gel, prescription topical antibiotic, hydrating toner (like Hada Labo), serum, day cream, SPF. Now to night routine: gel cleanser, oil/cream cleanser (I double cleanse), eye makeup remover, toner, prescription retinoid, hydrating eye cream, serum, moisturizer, face oil (few drops added to cream). What is that? 19? I’d like to add a targeted dark spot treatment to my routine as well, still doing my research. My weekly treatments include a mix of sheet masks, wash-off masks and overnight/sleeping masks used about 4 times a week. I’ll use a physical or chemical scrub/”peeling” once a week. And I like to use eye masks about 2 times a week. Oh, and I massage my face with jade. Yes, I have issues but who doesn’t?
