My Skincare Routine (aka Pretend This Is An Outfit Post.)

You GUYS. I have a cold and I am a dragging miserable wreck in the mornings and I can't seem to get my shit together enough to take outfit photos. Plus, I hate winter and I'm sick of all my winter clothes. The end. Things are going great.

Instead, I'm going to tell you about my skincare routine. The last time I posted one was in 2015 and wow, that was a long time ago. I was 43 which seemed old at the time. Hahaha..sob. Some things have definitely changed when it comes to the products I use but I still double cleanse because it's been such a game-changer. (The idea being that the first cleanse gets off your makeup and sunscreen, the second cleans your actual skin.) Okay, here's my crazy old lady routine:



Occasional use products:


Obviously my main two favorite brands are Sunday Riley and Kiehl's. Sunday Riley I love best for their facial oils and Kiehl's just makes good, straightforward products that work well for me and that aren't crazy expensive. Also, they're generous with samples and make travel sizes of most of their products so you don't have to spend a ton to find out what works for you. They also have great little kits! This is the one that got me hooked.

Any questions? Comments? Criticisms? I can take it.


  1. I've been using Vital Proteins for three months now. I think my hair looks better and my knees are definitely better. I just started using Jordan Samuels Retinol oil. I can't handle the strong stuff. My skin looks a little more hydrated and has a glow.

    1. Sweet. I'm mostly taking the collagen for my joints and nails but I'll take whatever benefits come from it!

  2. Curious why you use Juno at night instead of Luna. BTW I blame you for hooking me on Sunday Riley 18 months ago (my face thanks you, my wallet is a bit salty). For night I rotate the Luna oil, Good Genes and Tidal. I add a drop of Juno to my morning moisturizer when I am in need of glow but oddly if I use daily my skin gets weird. Don't understand why.

    I want to try Sunday Riley Vit C but drunk elephant Vitamin C serum broke me out bad and I fear my skin just doesn't like Vitamin C.

    1. I've tried Luna but it just never really seemed to do anything for me. Juno is really just for hydration and antioxidant benefits, so I am basically using it as a base-layer moisturizer.

      I looove the Sunday Riley Vitamin C (and the new Vit C oil) and neither break me out, though other vitamin C serums definitely have. Get a sample!

    2. Hmmm. I will definitely have to get a sample then, goodness knows I could use some brightening.

  3. Thank you! I want to get into a routine and will buy some of these.
