Skincare Routine – Summer

Skincare Update #1

Morning Routine

Pai Camellia and Rose Cleanser. I like to use this cleanser every morning to start my routine. It is a gentle product but it cleanses deeply. It does not dry the skin, nor leave a greasy film on it.

Pai Echium Eye Cream. I have already raved about this one before (reviewed here). This is an excellent, lightweight cream that nourishes the eye area without irritating. It is soothing and hydrating, and makes my eye area feel very refreshed.

Pai Geranium and Thistle Moisturizer. This is my favorite moisturizer to prepare skin before makeup. It leaves the skin moisturized but slightly matte. Although it does not contain silicones, it makes the skin very smooth so that makeup can glide on without creating patches. Intensive Brightening Mask*. Since I received this mask, I have been using twice a week as recommended. I like to leave it on as an intensive treatment if I am staying at home, while I rinse it off after 15 minutes if I have to go out. Especially if used in combination with the Brightening Toner, this is an incredible brightening treatment (review to come).

Evening Routine

Aurelia Miracle Cleanser* I just started to use this recently. I ran out of my Pai cleanser the night before, so this one arrived just in time. The moment I used it, I fell for it. The texture is simply perfect, being creamy but lightweight. I am going to write a full review about this product, because it is a 5 star product.

Marie Veronique Organics Facial Mist + Anti Aging Oil*. I started to use this combo recently, but it has worked wonders already. I am not specifically looking for the anti-aging benefits/results, but these two products have been making my skin look really good. (I will review the whole anti-aging kit). I spray the mist on my cleansed face and then massage some oil while the skin is still damp. It feels really good. The moment I apply it my skin looks pretty oily but by the time I wake up the oil is completely absorbed and my skin looks plumped. I also apply the oil on my under-eye area as a night treatment. The mist smells incredible. Great stuff.

I am so glad I finally found some time to write this post. I have been very busy, but I am trying lots of new great products and I cannot wait to share them with you! Have YOU changed your skincare routines since Summer arrived?
