Oh morning, you are so difficult with your 5am starts. To begin with, I wash my face in the shower with my beloved Skin Juice Pulp Cleanser. It contains Lactic Acid to help clear up congestion, but it doesn't dry my skin out.
I then stumble out of the shower, apply my Akin Rosehip oil, followed by my Invisible Zinc ESP moisturizer (which is almost empty, so is being swapped in for a newbie to me - Cosmedics Mineral Pro Triple Defense Protection Sunscreen* - let's see how it goes). Make up follows, however I wish to play with my face that day, it could be anything!
In the evening I have usually washed my face before gym, so this might be modified somewhat, but I will give you the generalisation. I roughly remove makeup using my Face of Australia Makeup Remover Wipes, then I give my face a wack with the Clarisonic with my Mario Badescu Keratoplast Soap (a cleanser which is supposed to be supremely gentle for sensitive skin). My clarisonic purging is now starting to die down, and I am in love with the buzzy machine. I use it at night to ensure I remove every milligram of makeup, and to help my serums soak in better.
I have also been exfoliating occasionally using Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant. After visiting the Harbour Day Spa I was told to use this every night to remove the dead skin cells from my poor suffering dry skin, however I have found that it is drying my skin out more. I have reverted it back to once every second to third day, which is faring much better!
Once out of the shower I apply my favourite eye cream of the moment - Jurlique Purely Age-Defying Eye Cream*. My serum is then applied and allowed to soak in for a moment, I was using Be in Awe Lightening Serum which did wonders with my Clarisonic purge pigmentation, however it ran out. So, as my skin is still really dry, my serum of choice at the moment is Jurlique Age-Defying Facial Serum*, which is doing wonders to rejuvenate my tired, dry skin. My night time moisturizer has just changed, I was using my Skin Juice Drench Oil, however it ran out a few nights ago, so I cracked open a new addition, EchoLife Jojoba Oil*. A few nights in and I can give you my first impressions - I am impressed. This Jojoba Oil is quite light, it soaks into my skin after about ten minutes and doesn't leave an oil film, as I have experienced with the one other Jojoba Oil I have tried. It was so greasy that I used it up on my decolletage and legs to finish the bottle off. I don't believe that will be occurring with this EchoLife Jojoba Oil however, I have a feeling this is precious stuff!
So there you have it. What I am applying to my face every day. I am trying to keep it as simple as possible, because my poor sensitive skin is still going a little crazy. I will get there one day!
