I used to have really bad acne. And after two major medical treatments I finally fought it. So now my skin is somewhat good, skincare has become something to enjoy rather than just lather on to fight the zits.

All My Skincare

At the moment this is my skincare stash. It’s not much and I don’t use it all everyday but so far it is working pretty good for me.


My ideal everyday skincare is this combo.

Origins Make a Difference cleansing milk.

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream

Clinique Pep-start eye cream.

It has recently occurred to me that I’ll have lines coming in around my eyes soon enough and I should probably try to minimize the damage. Thus I ventured out and bought the Pep-start eye cream. So far I like it although I doubt I’ll be able to see any difference ever.


I sometimes use the Garnier Micellar Clansing Water to take off my make-up before I cleanse. I’ve used it for a while and I do really like it. I feel like it clears up my skin if I’m having some irritations.


Using the micellar water and then the facial cream is like my cheat skincare. I use this when I feel to lazy to do the whole thing. Not that I think it is actually much faster, but It feels faster when you dont have to wet your face first.


If I’m really spoiling myself I’ll put on a facemask. The one I’m currently using it the Origins Clear Improvements clay mask to clean out my pores. I’ll then do my usual routine except I’ll put on a serum right now I have Kiehl’s Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate. As the name suggests it gives a lot of moisture to your face and my face really need this at times.

That concludes my skincare. As you might have seen I’m not fanatic about my skincare. I do like finding new delicious things but I also think skincare is often very expensive and on a student budget I just don’t have that kind of money for that. So all the products I’ve mentioned are in my opinion budget friendly.
