My Current Skincare Routine

As some of you may know, I am a big skincare junkie. I really got into skin care when I was 17 years old. I had occasional breakouts and spent a big chunk of my pay check in searching for the perfect skincare regimen. Well 10 years have passed, and I am still searching :). 
I know that there are so many things out there, I just want to try as much as I can. Which is why I subscribe to birch box

This is what I am  currently using:

To remove make up, I use Burt's Bees wipes ( not pictured )
I have tried a ton of different makeup removers and wipes and this is so far my favorite and it is available in almost every store. 

For face wash I use La Roche- Posay Effaclar Cleanser. This is my 2nd tube of this and I love it! Cleans wonderfully and I can use it with my clarisonic without the foam getting in my eyes and nose. 

For day time I use Juice Beauty Oil Free Moisturizer. I am very picky with my moisturizer, but this one meets all of my needs. I actually got a sample through birch box and loved it, therefore I bought myself the full size. 

My current eye cream is Caudalie SOS Morning Eye Cream. I use this both in the morning and at night. It is a cream and doesn't irritate my eyes.

If I get a occasional pimple I use Glytone 10% Benzoyl Peroxide and it works wonderfully. I have had this tube for about 6 months and there is still plenty left. 

For night time, I use Paula's Choice RESIST Retinol Wrinkle Serum. This was also a birch box find. I noticed when I use this, my fie lines seem less visible. My skin looks great when I get up in the morning.  
If my face feels dry that night, then I would add the Juice Beauty moisturizer on top. 

I still need to get a new sun screen. I ran out of the Kiehl's Fluid sunscreen. I really liked it, but I am not sure if I should get the same thing or try something else.  Sun screen is so tricky, I have tried so many brands that made me break out in big pimples. Any suggestions on sunblock for oily skin?

Thanks so much for visiting,


  1. Hey Rita!
    I'm catching up on your posts since I have been out of the blogging loop for a while. Anyways, I have been using Cetaphil Oil Control Moisturizer with Suncreen SPF 30. I use it daily as my moisturizer and sunscreen in one! I LOVE it! My skin is so oily and breaks out super easily so I'm finding the fewer products I have to use the better. Also I started taking EstroBlock (purchased it on Amazon) and it has done wonders for my skin on so many levels! I love reading your beauty and fashion posts! Have a wonderful weekend!
