My Skincare And Makeup Routine February 2012

Being mildly obsessive compulsive, I like having a routine, and my skincare routine especially is one thing I never skip irregardless. There were a few times that I fell sick, but I still managed to go on with my skincare routine :P It just feels so awkward and weird just not having done my skincare routine! :\

Now I thought I’d let you all have a little peek into my “virtual” cupboard and let you see my skincare and makeup routine :P

So this is what I do in the mornings:

I cleanse with Dr Andrew Weil For Origins Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Face Cleanser, tone with Cellnique Soothing And Hydrating Lotion, apply Cellnique Intensive Hydrating Complex followed by Melvita Calendula Oil and top it off with Marie Veronique Organics Moisturizing Face Screen SPF30- Light Tint. Dr Andrew Weil For Origins Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Eye Serum goes around my peepers after cleansing and before everything else.

Dr Andrew Weil For Origins

I remember reading about the Dr Andrew Weil For Origins Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Face Serum and seeing its adverts in magazines when it still had the word Plantidote in its name, but the Dr Andrew Weil For Origins range and Origins in general had never really attracted me for some reason, until 2008 when I bought the Christmas set out of a whim. It came with the range’s cleanser, serum and moisturiser. I used it a few times and remembered thinking “Meh” and “Nothing special” and had never touched it, until recently when my interest in it was sparked again. Of course the products from the Christmas set were too old to be used already by then so I bought the serum and tried it again, but after prolonged continuous use my skin didn’t like it by erupting in small pimples (But nothing major). I shelved it and I thought that was the end of trying the range and the brand for me.

Then my cleanser crisis came along and I was still on the hunt for the “one” replacement cleanser, and decided to give the cleanser a try again. To date I ended up with two products from the Dr Andrew Weil For Origins range :P

Dr Andrew Weil For Origins Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Face Cleanser

This milky cleanser features Dr Weil’s proprietary Mega-Mushroom blend plus skin soothing Bisabolol from Chamomile. Gently, yet effectively melts makeup, dirt, debris and impurities without upsetting sensitive skin. Leaves skin comfortably clean and calm. Great for sensitive and reactive skin.
