Since my last post which was very simple, my skincare stash has grown significantly. I honestly don't like using so many products, but I'm trying to finish things up in a timely manner. Products sitting around not being used are just a waste of space and money.

I only use the coconut oil and cleansing water if I'm wearing foundation or eyeliner, which is about every other day. I massage coconut oil all over my face and between my lashes, then wipe off with a cotton round/swab and then go in with the cleansing water to really make sure that my skin is clean of makeup. If I'm wearing minimal makeup (concealer, brows) I'll just go ahead to the next step, which is cleansing.

I cleanse at night with the No7 Melting Gel Cleanser, which begins as a gel but melts into an oil as it's rubbed into the skin. It takes off light makeup really well, which is why I use just this when I'm wearing light makeup. After washing, I apply a toner with my hands because I feel like I get more bang for my buck and I get to smell the pleasant scent the H2O+ Marine Toner. After my skin drinks it up, I put a dab of the Mary Kay Firming Eye Cream on my orbital bone. I actually don't really like this product because it takes forever and a half to sink in, but I feel the need to use an eye cream at night and this is the only appropriate night eye cream I have. The moisturizer I'm using right now is the Yes to Cucumbers Calming Night Cream, which has a soothing scent of chamomile and cucumbers. This bad boy sinks in quickly and leaves my skin feeling soothed and hydrated. Every other day at night I take a couple drops of the Tarte Maracuja Oil and smooth it over my face, concentrating on any dry patches.

In the morning I cleanse my face with a gentle cream cleanser, the Yes To Carrots Fragrance Free Dilay Cream Cleanser being my go-to these days. I don't use a toner in the morning, but rather go straight into moisturizing. My eye cream is the shimmery Tarte C-Brighter Eye Treatment, and I follow up with the sweetly scented Meishoku Organic Rose Moisture Cream. If I'm not wearing a foundation or tint moisturizer with SPF that day I will follow up with the Coola SPF 30 Minereal Cucumber Suncreen.

That's all, folks! What skincare products have you been using?
