My Skincare Favorites

There are a few things in my skincare routine that I cannot live without. My routine is pretty simple these days, and I like it that way. I used to get the $92.00 jars of “magic” night creams, etc., but I really could not tell that much of a difference from the basic items that I use now. I am a big believer in “you get what you pay for;” however, in skincare, I cannot tell the difference. Taking care of your skin so important (Thanks to my Mom who instilled that in me many moons ago), but shelling out big bucks for something you don’t see that much of a difference in, is hard to justify. I haven’t jumped on the oil bandwagon yet, but it’s tempting me. Do oils work for you? Do you really notice a difference? If so, do you have any recommendations?

I also have a few beauty items that I have been thinking about trying for awhile now, but just can’t seem to take that leap, mostly because my skin is extremely sensitive, and trying new products is exciting, but scary for me at the same time. I would hate to spend a ton of money on something, and then have it make me breakout, etc.

So, here’s what I use everyday in my current skincare routine. It works. And as they say “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it,” right?

Aveeno Ultra Calming Makeup Removing Wipes 


These wipes are so convenient. I use them at night, and right after I workout as well. They are really good at removing my eye makeup.

Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 30

I have to use a moisturizer with an SPF in it. My Mom introduced me to this one. I’ve been using this for several years now, and it doesn’t leave your face feeling greasy at all.

Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream

I sometimes alternate between this and the Aveeno daily moisturizer, especially if I know I am staying mostly indoors that day. It really soaks into your skin, and I think it’s a really great moisturizer.

 Olay Regenerist Luminous Dark Circle Correcting Hydraswirl

Raise your hand if you’re not getting quite as much beauty sleep as you used to before you had kids? Yup, me too. This is great for the now ever so obvious dark circles under my eyes. It works.

Olay Regenerist Regenerating Night Recovery Moisturizer Cream


 I use this at night. It feels amazing. It honestly feels like silk on your skin. It is incredibly moisturizing and has my face feeling refreshed by morning.

So, in writing this post, I also realized I’ve been paying WAY too much for these products. Like a few dollars difference for each one, so instead of shopping at Target for these beauties, I’m buying them off of!

I would love to hear of any beauty products you love, especially if you have sensitive skin like me.

Happy Thursday friends!
