Day time routine
In the morning, I usually just wash my face with water, then it's 1. Toner; 2. Eye cream;
The 2 tubes on step 6 are the same, I may be on a quest to use up everything I have on hand, but that doesn't mean I let things go to waste. After I couldn't squeeze any product from the tube, I cut it up and there's still a lot more product in the nooks and crannies!
Make up wise, I usually would go for foundation/concealers/and all that and eyeshadow, but with the requirement to wear face masks, I've also trimmed down my make up steps to just eyeliner and mascara and large glasses. It does cover up my eye bags/dark circles, LOL
Night time routine
Night time, my routine is also pretty much trimmed down to very few steps. There is 1. Cleanser; 2. Sugar scrub / Lush mask (love the smell of chocolate on this one) / Eye mask, rotated daily, so it's sugar scrub today, Lush tomorrow, eye mask day after, etc.; 3. Moisturizing wash-off mask; 4. Toner; 5. Eye cream; and 6. Some random Serum I had, but it's just used up today, so I'm going to switch to the same non-SPF moisturizer I use in the morning as well.
I also have a moisturizing lip balm that is supposed to be used overnight, but I tend to sleep with my face in the pillow and I don't want to soil my pillow that way LOL. I use that sporadically during my waking moments.
My theory is, I used to use too many products before (emulsifiers/ampoules/serums/essence/con
After these are used up, I still have a whole pack (and one other pack hidden somewhere, I have to find them) of testers and samples... and when these are used up, I will re-stock but probably keep to the same current minimalistic approach to my skincare.
