Makeup Monday x My Skincare

Figuring out a skincare routine that you are willing to stick to and enjoy using can be a huge challenge! It has taken me a while to figure out one that causes a healthy glow and a good dose of moisture without making my face into a broken out oil slick. My skincare combo below might be perfect for me but I highly suggest trying out a product or two and coming up with your own perfect mix!

This Lush soap called Coalface has been a lifesaver for my skin. I used to get horrible breakouts but since using this soap my skin has remained calm. I love the Boscia under eye balm for its wakening and brightening cooling effect, total game changer. The Josie Maran oil keeps my face soft and supple without clogging all my pores!


Again at night I use a charcoal based soap, it’s just sooooo good for my oily/combination skin. This one has a relaxing warming sensation that is perfect for bedtime. I like to follow it up with a double punch of Sunday Riley products: a retinol and lactic acid. To keep my eyes happy, this Kate Sommerville is great for fading dark circles and making you look like you always get 8 hours of rest.


At least once a week I give my face a good peel with Peter Thomas Roth. It’s just so grossly satisfying to see all the dead skin exfoliate off! I then use this fantastic mask that firms and brightens. (The only time my Sweet Baboo has complimented my skin is after this mask!) I’m so obsessed with the results of these products that I always have at least one bottle on standby.

Do you have a set routine that you love? I’d love to hear about your favourite skincare products!

    I have been looking for new skincare, I was SUPER with Rodan and Fields for a LONG time but have since decided to forgo it, it wasn’t making a HUGE difference and was kinda pricy, can’t wait to explore! thanks for sharing xo C

      It’s so disappointing when you pay a lot for something and it doesn’t deliver like you thought it would. I hope you find a new routine easily and quickly babe. Let me know if you have any questions! I’ve tried a million and one products. Hugs, Kait

    I need to start a better skin routine. I just wash my face at night and that’s it. So many things break me out though! I’ll have to try some of these!

    I love the way you did this round up! sticking with something is so difficult, especially if there are too many steps. I always like trying new highly recommended products to boost my skin up. The Lush soap sounds amazing!

    I finally have a routine that I’ve been following for a few months now and my skin never felt better! A good routine can do wonders for the skin, don’t you think so?

    I love the mini masks I got from Peter Thomas Roth, but I’ve never tried the peel! I may need to check that out!

    Yes!!! I have charcoal based soap for my face as well, I read all about it and what it does for me and I buy the same soap every time from an etsy shop called Thumbprintsoaps, glad to hear others are using charcoal based soap as well!
    Happy Monday, Simona and Indre
