Steph’s Morning Skincare Routine

I thought it would be fun to share my morning skincare routine and then another day I will share my nighttime routine since it’s a little bit different. I would say I’m definitely more into skincare than makeup. I’m hoping it pays off as I age! I love looking at all the anti-aging things and trying them out but it does get hard because it starts to get pricey. I try to find things that I really love to make spending the money worth it. The products I use last a long time so that helps me justify buying them.

I shower every morning even if I showered the night before because it helps me wake up. It’s like my morning coffee and I feel like I still move pretty slow. Does anyone have any suggestions or tips for that? It doesn’t matter how much sleep I get, I still move so slow. Sorry, I got off topic, lol. Back to skincare! So when I get in the shower the first thing I do is wash my face with my Clarisonic and I use Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. I like it because it’s so gentle on my skin and doesn’t irritate it and then the Clarisonic makes it feel so fresh and smooth.IMG_5661.jpg

You can find the Clarisonic here and the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser here. Usually, I will wait until the Cetaphil goes on sale at Costco and stock up on it then. I mentioned in a previous post of my Top 10 Beauty Products that I’ve had my Clarisonic for a long time and I still use it every morning.

After I get out of the shower, I like to moisturize my face first before I do anything else. I didn’t realize how much Clinique stuff I used until I took the picture below. It’s not a bad thing by any means but they’ve been tried and true products for me.


Sorry, the picture quality isn’t great on this one. I start off using this Clinique Clarifying Lotion 2. I use number 2 because it’s for combination skin. I just put some on a cotton ball and rub it all over my face.

After that, I use the Clinique Moisture Surge Hydrator. I’m always looking for extra moisture for my dry skin and this does the trick. I really love it in the winter when my skin is even drier. I’ve used heavier lotions before instead of this but it’s like you can feel it’s a heavier lotion if you know what I mean. This Moisture Surge is so lightweight so I prefer that instead of a heavier lotion.

I let the Moisture Surge really soak in for a minute before I layer on some Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. I saw on Instagram last week that Clinique is coming out with a new Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly. I’m pretty excited for it to come out and try it. When I do, I’ll be sure to post about it.

The last step for my skincare routine is to put this Clinique All About Eyes all around my eyes. I think as we age and eye cream is essential. It helps with puffiness and dark circles. I use this every morning and night.

Every few weeks when I can remember I will use this Murad Intensive-C Radiance Peel. It doesn’t actually make my skin peel and it hasn’t burned like it says it can on the bottle. It just leaves my skin feeling so refreshed and bright. I put it on after I wash my face and leave it for ten minutes before wiping it off with a warm cloth. Then I do the rest of my routine as normal.


I hope you enjoyed this post and if you have any questions or tips about things I need to try, leave a comment and let me know! Happy hump day, friends!
