My Current Skin Care Routine: A Couple of Swaps and an Addition

Back in January, I shared my Winter skin care routine. I’m sure you committed it to memory … right? Well, get ready to relearn my lineup because I’ve made a few substitutes and one addition.

First up – the face oil swap. When we last spoke, I was using the Boscia Tsubaki Beauty Oil for some extra hydration during the dry Winter months. About a week or two after the post went live, my skin starting breaking out, and it was ultimately because of this oil. Not really sure what it is in the product that broke me out seeing that my skin doesn’t normally react to any products. Regardless, it was time to find something new. I got a sample of the Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil while at Sephora a few weeks after breaking out, so I figured I’d give it a shot. I ended up buying the full bottle, so needless to say, I loved the product. It keeps me moisturized (but not oily), acne-free and I like the fresh (pun intended) but subtle scent. It’s a bit pricey at $50 for a full bottle, but it’s been about two months and I’ve only used a third of the bottle. It’s definitely worth the price!

Next up – face lotion. In January I swapped my Clinique face lotion for Philosophy’s hope in a jar day and night cream. Welp, I’ve switched back. I made it to the bottom of the jars, and I realized they didn’t offer much more hope than my tried-and-true favorite. They weren’t bad lotions per say, they just weren’t worth the price since Clinique works just as good for me at a fraction of the price.

New addition – First Aid Beauty. Not only did I introduce a new product to my routine, but I introduced a new brand. Two new things for the price of one, what could be more exciting? After a few weeks of dramatically flakey skin, I threw in the towel and bought the FAB facial radiance pads that a Sephora makeup artist had used on me during one of my recent trips. I was hooked after day one, and I can’t imagine my life without them anymore. You can read my full review of the pads here. You should really, really, REALLY give them a try!

I’m really happy with my substitutes (and addition) so far, and don’t see myself switching back anytime soon.
