My Skincare Routine Update

My Skincare Routine Update

My skin is normal, a tendency towards dry. Dry, especially during the colder months. I’m blessed in a way that I don’t have too many problems with my skin, such as acne – and I seldom get break-outs. However, when I do get pimples, although they disappear rather quickly, I’m left with unsightly dark marks. During COVID-19 lockdown, I started getting a few spots for no inexplicable reason. And as I never squeeze pimples, I was surprised that I was left with such dark marks.

Caudalie vinoperfect correcting glycolic night cream
This works overnight to renew the skin. I added the correcting glycolic night cream to my skincare routine – applying it over the serum at nights. It’s just gone 9 weeks since I started using this night cream. I used it on its own for one month before I started with the serum. There was a slight improvement in the reduction of the dark marks, and my skin feels and looks more smooth.

Caudalie vinoperfect radiance serum complexion correcting for all skin types.
I don’t usually use serums, simply, because I’m not so into using many products at once on my skin – however, I have been using this serum for over a year, on and off. And when I had break-outs, especially lately, I decided to use it regularly. A few drops are enough and it spreads nicely on the skin.

Overall, my skin has improved and looks more healthy, radiant and even-toned, now that I’m using the serum and night cream together. I’m happy with the results and think that it just needs a little more time until the dark marks completely fade.

Sisley nutritive lip balm
This is one of the nicest lip balms I’ve used. It has a nice shine without that sticky feeling. When I’m not using lipstick – I like to line my lips with my favourite lip liner and use this product over it. However, I use it mostly at nights. It makes my lips feel so soft. This is definitely a keeper.

Caudalie vinosource moisturising sorbet for sensitive skin
This is the newest addition to my skincare routine – and I love how it feels on my skin. It is a gel-cream which has a lightweight consistency and absorbs nicely – leaving my skin feeling refreshed and hydrated. It’s a nice moisturiser, especially for sensitive skin. I love using the moisturising sorbet before I apply my foundation.

La Roche-Posay Anthelios 50+ ultra protection
I have been using this sunscreen for years and although I have tried a few others I always go back to this one. Being dark skin, I always avoid sun creams that leave a white residue. And this one is perfect. The texture is really nice and it spreads evenly without my skin feeling uncomfortable.

      I will continue to use the serum as I’m sure it will clear up my dark spots. I do enjoy using Caudalie products. Thanks, Naya!

    Some great recos, Yvonne. I’ve tried the Caudalie VinoPerfect Serum and really liked it. Might have to work it back into my skincare routine! Really intrigued by Sisley Lip Balm, too.

    Hmm that is odd. My skin trends towards dry as well with the occasional breakout. I get a red mark thats even worse LOL. It fades in time but can take a while. I have heard good things about Caudalie and so want to try them.
