Time once again for the very occasional feature Skin Care Sunday. Last time I did this was back in April. A few of the products have remained in my lineup but there's a lot of new stuff, too.
Here's what I use in my morning routine (non-gym mornings, anyway). I'm still washing with Purpose soap (not pictured) and putting the CVS Firming Lift Eye Cream on. I'm almost out of that; I like it enough that I'll probably repurchase it, provided they haven't discontinued it like happens with so many things I like. The Boots No. 7 Calm Skin Redness-relief Gel is something I picked up online several months back. It's not really a gel, more of a lotion, and I don't think it's reduced my redness, so I'm not going to be buying it again. I just splurged and ordered something pricey to take its place; it had good reviews on Beauty.com but time will tell if it works for me. For extra hydrating of my undereye area, I'm using L'Oreal Revitalift Complete Eye; this is a sample that came with some hair color. I like it pretty well, though I wonder if I need somethng even more moisturizing at my age. The Aveeno Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 is my last step before makeup. I don't like this nearly as well as the SPF 30 one they used to have in the Ultra-Calming line. If the new anti-redness stuff I just ordered works even a little bit, I'll dump the Aveeno and find an SPF 30 moisturizer (maybe I'll go back to the Eucerin I had before).
At night, I wash with Olay 2-in-1 Daily Facial Cloths (I cut them in half so a box lasts longer). Every other night at least, I follow with Stridex Alcohol Free 2% salyclic acid pads (also not shown). Three or four nights a week, I use the RoC Multi-Correxion Night Treatment, and the other nights, I do the Alpha Hydrox AHA Souffle followed by L'Oreal Age Perfect Night. A friend who does a lot of reading and research on skin care recommended the Alpha Hydrox for my chest skin; it's got 12% glycolic acid. The CVS Retinol Eye Cream I use every night.
And this is the face I've got to show for all this skin care. Still redder than I'd like but that's what makeup is for.
