My skincare routine

I am not the best person at taking care of my skin. The one thing I almost always use, and have used since I was about 20, has been eye cream. I try to wash my face every night before I go to bed, but sometimes I am just too tired or lazy.

I have sensitive, oily/combination, acne prone skin for reference.

Face wash- Dr. Denese Hydrating or Goat Milk Stuff Tea Tree soap

Toner- Clinique Clarifying Lotion 3

Serums- Estee Lauder Idealist and Advanced Night Repair

Day Cream- Dr. Denese SPF 30 Day Cream

Exfoliator- Clarisonic Mia or Baking Soda mixed with face wash made into a paste

Eye Cream- Shiseido Benefiance (I am in love with this eye cream)

Acne products- Clinique Acne masque, Clinique Acne moisturizer

I have some Dr. Denese peel pads and peels that I will occasionally use, but they tend to make my skin very sensitive if I use them too often. My skin stays clearest when I use minimal products and wash my make-up off every day. On really dry days I use some Laura Geller Spackle under my make-up and it adds moisture while priming my skin or I use whatever random moisturizer GWP or sample I have closest to me at the time.

What I want to try:

Origins products
more Shiseido products

What lines do not work for me?

Bare Minerals skin care
Lancome skin care
