Putting it all together – my skincare regimen

It has to be confusing to read blogs and see the variety of products that a blogger uses and reviews. I know I’ve asked myself “well what does she really use”. This is a summary of the skincare I’ve been using for at least the last several months. I’ve tested a few things too but this review shows what I’ve gone back to. At the moment I’m very happy with the way my skin is looking. I’m not having the dehydration and dryness that I experienced last winter and I know that’s the result of these products. I’m about to test out a new line of products that I’m excited about and can only hope that they will help me continue with a better complexion. In the meantime here’s what has been making me happy.

MORNING:

I wash with ENZOSKIN Rinse Off Cleansing Cream.

Next I tone with ENZOSKIN Rose Silk Facial Toner.


For serum I’ve been using Marie Louise Vital Nanoemulsion a-VC.

The sunscreen I’m using is by Rodan & Fields.

My daytime eye cream is Senna Lift and Lighten Eye Cream which I sometimes mix with concealer.

My moisturizer is also from Marie Louise,  Crème a-VC. Unfortunately, as you can see by my photo, I’ve finished up this moisturizer but I’ll be purchasing it in the future since I love what it’s done for me.

All of these products (except the sunscreen) have been reviewed and you can click on the links to see the reviews rather than my repeating what I love about these. I’m 100% sold on every one of them and not only recommend them to you but my plans are to buy them when I run out.

NIGHTTIME:

I’m mostly using Marie Louise Cleansing Clear Gel for cleansing  and Marie Louise Restoration Clear Gel for exfoliation. I have used others when I’m in the mood to use my Clarisonic  but I especially love Cleansing Clear Gel if I have foundation on since it really gets my skin clean.

Toner again is ENZOSKIN Rose Silk Toner plus about twice a week I use one from Rodan & Fields for skin lightening.

Now for the products I haven’t mentioned before: BEAUTISOL 99% Pure Peptide Rescue, Eye Want and Eye Bright. Lisa reviewed these products and it created a want in my life so I purchased them in December and have been using them since. Directions for the 99% Pure Peptide Rescue suggest using it twice a day but I’m so happy with my morning routine that I just use this at night. They also suggest using Eye Bright twice a day but I’m just using it at night. With 99% Pure Peptide Rescue I’ve noticed a much clearer skintone. The unevenness that plagues me is reduced though not gone. My skin is more radiant with this. I use one small pump for my entire face and neck. There’s a fragrance with it that’s a little medicinal but once my moisturizer is on I don’t notice it.  I joined Club Sol and chose a 90 day autosend with it. This gave me a better price ($105 instead of $120) and entitles me to take advantage of any specials they have.


I’m not on the club with the two eye products since that was one of their specials and I was excited to take advantage of it on the half price offer they had shortly after I joined Club Sol. Eye Want retails for $55 and Eye Bright for $45. Eye Want is a serum to be used only at night. It’s very lightweight and a little goes a long way. It helps with firming skin and softening lines, it’s been great for my crow’s feet. It’s a little sticky after putting it on so I need to wait about 2 minutes prior to using anything else. Eye Bright is a lightweight that can be used twice a day and helps with moisturization and brightening. These two are loaded with wonderful ingredients (see Lisa’s review for those) and after 2 full months of use I’m seeing the benefits promised. I love the packaging of Beautisol because I feel it’s so hygenic.

My favorite product comes last, ENZOSKIN Pure E Moisturizer. I raved (and raved) about it here so you can see all the reasons I love it. I can only use this at night because it’s too slick for me to wear under makeup and I do use it every single night.


OCCASIONAL USE:

I don’t want to forget about a few other things I’m using. First is also by ENZOSKIN and it’s the Rejuvenating Facial Oil. I have a lot of Rodan & Fields items since I sold it for a while and I really do like the line even though I’ve chosen not to continue being a representative. I like their Night Recovery Cream and I like it even better with the ENZOSKIN Rejuvenating Facial Oil under it.

In the last few weeks I’ve added a wonderful new eye cream into the mix and switch it off with Beautisol Eye Bright. The new eye cream, which will get a full review, is Exuviance Age Reverse. This adds in another level of hydration to my undereyes.

So there you have it. What I’m using and loving. Between Marie Louise, Senna, Beautisol and Enzoskin I’m happy to have found a regimen that works so well for me and products that I can recommend with a clear conscience! — Marcia

Marie Louise Cleansing Clear Gel review and giveaway!

Marie Louise’s Cleansing Clear Gel is my latest skincare obsession. This is unlike any product I’ve tried and I’m really enjoying the way it cleans my face. What makes this different is that it’s a true makeup remover. So many cleansing products just cleanse your skin but don’t necessarily remove your makeup properly. The Cleansing Clear Gel though is made specifically for the job of removing your foundation, powder, blush and all the other products you’ve loaded on your face. It gently removes my makeup while cleansing and hydrating my skin at the same time.


The process of using this is different, at least for me. Directions say to start with a totally dry face and totally dry hands. Even though it can be used morning and evening I’m saving this for evening since I prefer this soft gel’s ability to eliminate the oils I’ve built up during the day as well as my makeup. I don’t need much of the gel to do the job. The directions recommend using a quarter size amount but I don’t find I need that much.

Here are my steps. I first remove my eye makeup with a specific eye makeup remover.

  1. Start with a dry face.
  2. Squeeze out the preferred amount onto my dry hand.
  3. Rub my hands together to emulsify and warm up the gel.
  4. Smooth over my entire face using a circular motion; the warmth of my hands helps the gel soften for a deeper cleansing.
  5. I add water after the gel liquefies (though you don’t actually have to) to get more emulsification from the cleanser.
  6. Finally I rinse with lukewarm water and a muslin cloth but you can also just wipe it off with a sponge or cotton pad.
  7. Sometimes I’ll follow with a toner, sometimes I’ll go right for my moisturizer like Marie Louise Crème a-VC Facial Moisturizer .
  8. Once or twice a week I use Marie Louise Restoration Clear Gel (Exfoliating Gel) after I’ve used the Cleansing Clear Gel.

This is the third product I’ve added to my skincare regimen from Marie Louise. All three are ones I can highly recommend. Marie Louise uses something called Deep Sea Concentrate to help make their products more effective. This adds in minerals like magnesium, calcium and potassium. They also use Vitamins A, C and E as well as algae extracts, hyaluronic acid, hydrolyzed yeast and ceramides. Now I’m not a scientist but I know that their pure ingredients are helping to make my skin look more youthful, more hydrated and fresher feeling. I’m fighting age daily and Marie Louise Cosmetics is helping me to do that.
