Skincare Wednesday : My Current Skin Care Routine

 

Hey everyone!

My skin has been getting quite dry lately (from its usual oily self!) so I made some changes in my skin care routine to add some hydration and glow to my skin. Some of these products are recent additions so its early to tell how my skin is reacting to them but the dryness at least is taken care of for now!

Here’s my current skin care routine –

[note color=”#FFE4C4″]The Clarins gel, Vichy Cleanser, Scrub, Avon night cream and Ponds Gold Radiance eye cream are brilliant! The others are recent additions so I can’t tell how well they are working. Once I’m done with these moisturizers, I’m planning to try The Body Shop Vit E range, I think my skin is going to get drier as we enter the winters. I also wanted to try the new Neutrogena Wave cleanser but I think it might be too harsh for my skin in the current conditions.

Have you tried any of these products? What skin care products are you using currently? [/note]

    I am also currently trying the Youth Code Luminosity Serum and Cream, so cannot say much, but am liking them so far and yes they do give some instant glow I feel..
    I tried the VIT E eye cream and did not like it much, will be reviewing it on my blog tomorrow. You can check if you want to ..

      Ohh! I was thinking of trying the face moisturizers from TBS Vit E, have you tried those? I’ve heard the eye cream is not that great. Try the Ponds gold radiance one, its good!

        TBS vit E is good for hydration… but just that… nothing else 🙂

      • October 24, 2012 / 3:34 pm

        not the face moisturizers, only the eye cream ..I will probably pick the Ponds one, when I am visiting India ..

            October 27, 2012 / 2:28 pm

            i hv used only one product from their vit C range … microdermabrasion … n it was good.. not fabuloso but still quite good… although if yu hv acne yu might want to skip it…

            so sorry ankita, for such a late reply. just read this today…
            i have been using the capsules, the face wash, scrub, misturiser and the face boost.
            my fav pick is the capsules. i am on my 3rd jar at the moment. i dont think i will be repurchasing any other items though. i mean they are good but nothing spectacular. but the capsules are amazing. the transformed my dull looking skin wonderfully. totally suggest them!

      Hi Rashmi, its only been 4-5 days since I’ve started using the gold radiance cream so its difficult to tell right now. I will review the Youth Code serum in about 8-10 days. I generally like to use skin care products for at least 4 weeks before I review them 🙂

      Hey Ish, I find it a little less hydrating for my under eyes but it dries down matte so doesn’t interfere with my eye makeup which is why I use it in the day time.

  5. October 24, 2012 / 2:02 pm

    gold radiance sounds promising..youth code is really nice i feel 🙂

      Hey Shikha, you can try the Avon one mentioned above or Lotus Herbals Nutranite cream. I’ve not tried the Lotus one personally but I’ve heard its one. I’m using the Avon one and I love it!

    The Vichy cleanser looks good, will hunt it down! Any chance I can get it online? The TBS vit e face cream breaks me out (I have combination to oily skin for most part of the year, but right now even in the dry phases the cream broke me out), so I thought I’d ask you to be cautious…read more reviews on it from varied skin types!

      Hi Rini, the Vichy cleanser is available on many websites. I picked it up from Violetbag. Too bad the cream breaks you out! I’ll read more reviews and then decide!

    I have EXTREMELY dry skin and I get acne when I change products, so I use the same products all year round. 🙂
    I totally swear by the Vichy Purete Thermale Purifying Foaming Water 🙂 Love it!

    Waow Ankz! I am using about 3 products from your skin care range – Neutrogena Deep Clean Blackhead Eliminating Toner, Vichy Purete Thermale Purifying Foaming Water and Organic Surge Eye Gel! Besides I am using Vichy Bi-White Reveal Deep Corrective Whitening Essence and Vichy Bi-White Reveal Double Corrective Whitening Emulsion! And am telling you,,they are working wonders on my skin!! 😀 😀

      No Jigisha, with the slight dryness in my skin right now, the lakme sunscreen gets absorbed completely. I use a small amount so no white cast.

      Thanks Parita, I’ll try the Avene thermal water!

  16. October 25, 2012 / 8:38 pm

    First off let me sale you’re absolutely beautiful! Second, when I got this post in my email, a picture of an old lady with very wrinkled face was in the email LOL. It was part of an ad but I laughed so hard!

    So, should I have an under eye cream? I have very oily skin as well, I rarely wash my face. I only apply two facial pads one of them is to exfoliate. I had every bad acne from puberty to well into my 20s. Nothing of the counter worked so I seek help from the doctor. Took one year to have radiant, clear skin. I need to find a really good day and night cream since it’s getting colder….

      Hi Priya, you can try the Vichy Purete Thermale range of products. They are meant for sensitive skin and available online at healthkart.com, violetbag.com.

      However the best thing would be to consult a dermatologist and use the products he/she would recommend.
