Skincare Routine

Once I graduated college, I started to notice lines and sunspots things that were never a concern when I was 21. I knew then it was time to change my skincare routine that solely consisted of face cleanser and moisturizer. Having been a fan already of Philosophy I turned to their skincare line to place some oomph into my routine. I absolutely love their line and all of their products smell amazing. I have tried other drugstore and department brands but always return back to Philosophy as my favorite. Here is my daily skincare routine.

Skincare Routine by sweetcarolinabelle featuring a philosophy face wash

1. Purity Face Wash- I use this every morning and at night. It has such a wonderful, clean scent and makes your face feel clean and refreshed. In the morning, I use this with my Clairsonic Mia for a deeper clean.
2. Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash- Once or twice a week, I use the microdelivery exfoliating wash in the mornings with my Mia. It is advertised that is gentle enough for everyday use. However, I have found that when I use it with the Mia that my face can get a bit raw if I use it more than twice a week.
3. Microdelivery Peel- I use this peel every two weeks. I love masks and the immediate satisfaction you feel and see in the mirror. This mask is amazing for getting deep down and removing any dirt and toxins that are lingering around.
4. Oxygen Face Cream- Over the past few years I have tried a huge variety of face creams trying to find one that works with my combination sensitive skin. This cream is jell like and leaves your face feeling refreshed without feeling oily.
5. Retin-A- I get this from my dermatologist to help with acne. Since it is prescription, it has a stronger amount of retanoids than you can find in over the counter products. I struggle with cystic and topical acne and have been using this product for years with very little flareups. It also helps with fine lines and wrinkles. I use this every other night  after I wash my face. If you don't go to a dermatologist there are also good over the counter products available now too.

What is your daily skincare routine?
