My Skin Care Routine

I always had problems with my skin. It is really sensitive so I can't just try out a product because I might get an allergic reaction. I also have acne-prone skin, so food or skin care products can give me break outs.

I have searched a long time for a good skincare routine and I finally think I found it! I still get break outs sometimes but it isn't as bad as it used to be.

Step 1: Eye Cleanser

I always clean my eyes first. I just put some eye cleansing oil on two cotton pads and I rub my eye makeup off my eyes. I just use a drugstore eye cleansing oil for this.

Step 2: Face Cleanser

Than I take my Purity Made Simple from Philosophy. I take a bit on my hand and mix it with some water than I massage it on my face for about one minute. Just to make sure that there is no make-up on my face left. Then I wash it off with warm water.
Purity Made Simple 240 ml €20,29

Step 3: Face Toner

To make sure that all the make-up and cleanser are off my face I use a toner as my last cleansing step. I really like Lush Eau Roma Water. I spray this on a cotton pad and wipe it all over my face.
Lush Eau Roma Water 250 g €11,65

Step 4: Serum

After all the cleansing steps I use a serum on my skin. I use Philosophy's Keep the Peace Serum to calm down the redness in my skin. (I also like Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate). I just take some drops and massage it in to my skin.
Philosophy's Keep the Peace Serum 27 ml € 45,71
Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate 30 ml €39,00 

Step 5: Eye Cream

This is the first eye cream I have ever used and I really like it. I take a small amount of Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado and tap that in to my under eye area.
Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado €25,00

Step 6: Face Cream/Lotion

If you have read my Hope in a Jar review, you know about my search for the perfect moisturizer. I think that this is the best moisturizer I have ever used. I take a bit of Kiehl's Ultra Facial oil-free Lotion and massage this in to my skin until my face does not feel sticky any more.
Kiehl's Ultra Facial oil-free Lotion €24,00

Step 7: Treatment for break outs (optional)

When I have a really bad break out I use a special acne treatment so that it will go away sooner. I do not use one particular product. So I will just name all the products that I have used and that worked for me.

Benefit - Boo Boo Zap €20,00
Lush - Grease Lightning €10,15
Biodermal - Acne Cream €12,35

Just take some of the product and put it on the problem area.

After this my skin care routine is completed! I know these are a lot of steps and products, but if my skin looks good it is totally worth it!
I hope this maybe helps you finding your one skincare routine. Just try out a lot of products and see what works for you!

What kind of products do you use in your skincare routine?

Glossybox November 2012

Last week I got my new Glossybox. They have there one year anniversary this month so that means that this was a special box with special and exclusive products.

This is the Anniversary Glossybox of November 2012:

The products that are in there:

Sabon - Patchouli Lavender Vanilla Hand Cream

Full size € 11,95

Hannah - 24 H Skin Balancing Cream

10 ml €9,00
45 ml €37,50

Zoeva - Pure Glam Pigment in Terra di Siena   

Full Size €3,80  


Anatomicals - Farewell the Scarlet Pimplehell Deep Cleansing Mud Mask

Full Size €1,95

Fashion Make-up - Eyeliner in Black

Full Size €5,00

Paul Mitchell - Awapuhi Wild Ginger Styling Treatment Oil

100 ml €32,95

I am really happy with the products in this box. I always wanted to try out the Hannah skincare. I almost bought it at one point, but I have no idea why I didn't buy in the end.

I already have a hand cream from Sabon (Violet) and it smells amazing and moisturizes very well.
The eyeliner comes at the right time because mine is almost finished.
I also really like the hair oil from Paul Mitchell. I am always looking for new hair treatments and oils and this one smells really nice.
The color of the Zoeva Pure Glam Pigment is not something I would wear. At least not every day but with Christmas coming up I might use it.
I am curious about the Anatomicals Mud Mask. Just because I do not want an allergic or irritated reaction on my skin. So I will put it on a small part of my face and see how that works out.

I am also looking forward to the December box, the Holiday edition!! Which means a lot of exclusive and high end products/samples (at least I hope).

Have you tried one of these product?
