Skincare Review and Routine: Lancôme

I was not asked or paid by Lancôme or any of the other brands to write this skincare review. I just truly love it so much that I had to tell y'all about it! 

I have combination skin to the extreme: I have an oily T-Zone {with common pimples on my chin}, while I will have patches of dry skin on the upper layer...especially on my nose. It's a real pain, let me tell you. 

I have always been very good about washing my face and moisturizing, but when I got pregnant and my skin started changing {hello, cystic acne on my neck!}, I had to rethink my skincare line and routine. 

That's where Lancôme came in. 

Here's my daily skincare routine {morning}:

Using my Clarisonic Mia and its deep pore brush head, I wash my face and neck with Murad's Time Release Acne Cleanser. When I get out of the shower, I use Neutrogena's Clear Pore Oil-Eliminating Astringent all over my face and neck. I then moisturize with Lancôme's Bienfait Multi-Vital SPF 30 Cream

I can't reiterate enough the importance of either using sunscreen or a moisturizer with sunscreen in it. While tan may look good now, wrinkles and sunspots definitely will not look good later. Trust. 


Here's my daily skincare routine {night}:

At night, I always, always take off my make-up before I go to bed. Not only is this good for your skin, it keeps your pillowcases and sheets clean! 

Using a washcloth, I use Neutrogena's Oil-Free Acne Wash to remove make-up, dirt, etc. {I have tried a ton of other cleansers at all price ranges, and I will say that this one is my favorite!} Then, I take off the remainder of my eye make-up with Lancôme's Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover. I swipe Neutrogena's Clear Pore Oil-Eliminating Astringent all over my face and neck. I use Lancôme's Advanced Génefique Youth Activating Concentrate all over my face. {This stuff is amazing! After using it for only seven days, I noticed much smoother skin and an even skin tone.} Finally, I tap Lancôme's Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Eye Cream under my eyes, on the sides and under my brow bone, and then moisturize heavily all over with Lancôme's High Résolution Refill-3X Anti-Aging Moisturizing Cream


I know this looks and sounds like a ton, but it's so worth it! Brandon will tease me that it takes me just as long to take my make-up off as it does to put it on, but I tell him he'll appreciate it when I'm not wrinkly when I'm old! Ha! 

Do you have a tried-and-true skincare routine?
