Skincare Journal No. 6

As usual, I have overdone it with trying new skincare products in the last few weeks and my skin has been none too happy about it. For those curious, outside of what I have already posted about I have managed to try:

  • Algenist Algae Brightening Mask
  • Algenist GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Bi-Phase Peel
  • Algenist GENIUS Ultimate Anti-Aging Melting Cleanser
  • Perricone H2 Elemental Energy Firming Face Mask
  • Perricone High Potency Face Firming Activator
  • La solution 10 de Chanel
  • Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer
  • Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation
  • Hourglass Illusion Hyaluronic Skin Tint
  • Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup
  • Estée Lauder DoubleWear Nude Cushion Stick
  • Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion Ultra-Longwear Foundation

I actually enjoyed each of them for different reasons, but my skin just did not enjoy the multitude of new things happening all at once. I have went back to my tried-and-true routine: NIOD LVCE, NIOD CAIS, NIOD MMHC, and Differin. I have even taken to photographing my face each day to see the results, and after a week of stripping it back I have noticed a strong reduction in surface redness and blemish severity. In fact, I have not had any new blemishes all week. So while my routine may be boring, it seems to work. Maybe next week I will slip in something exciting…
