Hey girl hey! If you didn’t already know, I am obsessed with skincare. If I had to pick makeup over skincare, I would 100% pick skincare. Having good skincare is so important if you want good makeup. In today’s post, I’m going to be sharing my current skincare routine with you, both day and night. If you are interested in what I use on my skin everyday, keep on scrolling!
Stay tuned at the end for a very fun giveaway with Jord Watches! Jord partnered up with me for this post to help one of you get the watch of your dreams. I have been loving my watch. It’s so stylish, sleek, and matches everything I wear. Definitely one of my new favorite accessories!

My Skin Type
First and foremost, it is important to note that my skin type definitely is a driving force in what I use on my skin. This post will probably be more beneficial for those who have sensitive, combination type skin because that’s what I have. Many of these products are great for all skin types, so I will designate which products anyone can use.
My main skincare concern is redness and brightening. I always try to find products that help combat redness, and I love anything that adds a glow. You’ll notice that the skincare I recommend reflects both of those things! The glow is totally in right now, and I am living for it.
Day Time Skincare Routine
The Bliss Rose Gold Cleanser is perfect for those with sensitive skin. It gets off any and all makeup that might have been left over from the night before. After using it, my skin feels so clear and ready to go for the day. All skin types, especially sensitive.
Toning is one of the most important steps in your skincare routine. It helps to rebalance the skin after stripping it during the cleansing process. However, sometimes toners can be very abrasive if you have sensitive skin. This one by Mario Badescu is one of the gentlest toners I have ever used. It’s formulated with chamomile, which is proven to help calm down irritated skin. I apply the toner with a cotton round all over skin directly after cleansing. All skin types, especially sensitive.
I personally love physical exfoliators, and this one is by far my favorite. The Pixi Peel & Polish treatment gently exfoliates with both a physical and chemical exfoliator, so you’re getting exfoliation from the inside out. I love how my skin can be such a hot mess before using this, then automatically feel like a baby’s right after! All skin types.
During the day, I need a moisturizer that has some SPF in it. Not only does this one have SPF, but it also is oil free, so my skin doesn’t get greasy throughout the day. It pairs wonderfully with any foundation I put on top of it, and my skin always feels super hydrated. Fun fact: even if you have oily skin, you still need to moisturizer! Combination and oily skin types.
Night Time Skincare Routine
What I personally love about this cleanser is how it takes all of my makeup off without stripping my skin. My skin feels super soft and hydrated after cleansing with this, which is super important to me at night. Most cleansers tend to make my face feel tight, and that isn’t something I want for nighttime skincare. This one gets everything off without compromising hydration and moisture.
I am obsessed with always looking glowy, and this toner makes your skin look absolutely incredible. I use it during the day occasionally too, but this is my nighttime jam. It has a ton of healthy acids in it to help exfoliate deep underneath the skin to reveal flawless and glowing skin!
Again, a good glow is my go-to. I love to utilize serums, especially at night, because I feel like they help my moisturizer do all the work. This one makes my skin feel so amazing, and truly hydrates. I love how radiant my skin looks after using it. This serum has a ton of the same healthy acids in it that the GT toner has.
If you aren’t on the K-Beauty trend, you need to be! Korean beauty brands have been killing it the past few years, and Laneige is no exception. Their products are such high quality, and truly do what they say. This moisturizer is super lightweight, while also providing amazing hydration throughout the night.
There you have it! My full updated skincare routine! Now for the fun part: a Jord GIVEAWAY!
