Morning Skin Care Routine

As it is Monday and a brand new week, 
I thought it would be a good time to discuss
 morning skin care.
Skincare is very important and even more important
during the summer as the heat and the humidity can make skin go crazy
Also, you have to worry about the sun's harmful rays.
I always wear sunscreen.

Here is my morning skin care routine.

Chanel Mousse Exfolinate Purete
In the morning, I have to wash my face. 
I know they say don't but if I don't I just feel dirty.
However, I only use a little bit of this cleanser.
It makes my skin nice and soft.
I also use this at night to wash my makeup off.
It does a great job at getting off ALL my makeup.


Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Clarity-Activating Toner
To tone or not to tone.
Personally,  I love toner and use it daily.
It totally fades my dark spots which is why I use it.
It makes my skin brighter and clearer.
I LOVE LOVE this stuff.
Neiman Marcus

Tree Moringa Lavender Facial Oil
It's a nice facial oil that really hydrates and make my skin
look more youthful looking.  It helps my makeup
go on smoother.  I let it dry for about ten 
minutes before I move to the next product.
True Moringa

Cle du Peau Correcting Veil
I have been using this as my primer since April and love it.
It totally makes my skin more radiant and brighter.
It also has SPF 21 in it.
Neiman Marcus

Setting Spray
Skindinavia The Makeup Finishing Spray
I know this is a finishing spray but I actually use it before I put my foundation on.
Learned that trick from a makeup artist I know. 
Honestly, I feel like using it before makes a huge difference. 
Just one little spray before I put on my foundation.
My makeup no longer melts off on those hot humid days.
Using a setting spray before and after, has totally made the difference.

La Mer Powder
To be honest, I change what I use for foundation all the time. 
Foundation is the one product I have no loyalty to nor to any one brand.
Right now, I'm using this powder from La Mer as my foundation.
This really isn't a foundation but a setting powder.
It totally makes my skin look radiant and does not move from my face.
It's has yet to melt off on a hot humid day. 
Neiman Marcus

Setting Spray
Supergoop Setting Mist with SPF 50
Once I got my "face on", I spray this on my face.
It not only sets my makeup but offers great sun protection.
I do carry this in my purse and re-apply through out the day.
I feel like it not only refreshes my makeup but it also
protects my skin from the sun.

Setting Spray

Yes, I do actually use this many products every morning.
It doesn't seem like very many when I'm using them.
I listed the products in order of how I use them 
and using them all together really does help
my makeup stay on in the heat.

What is your morning skin care routine??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!
Best, Marie

  1. Thanks for sharing! I have decent skin but didn't always, (I still need regular facials to help) and I am always curious to see what others use.

  2. yes--i apply setting before and after to get my makeup to last. i did a post on that 2 years ago and need to update it!

  3. ah give me all the kiehls and supergoop. and well all of it :) good roundup girl! xo

  4. Your products are just fantastic girl!! That setting spray sounds amazing - and with 50 SPF it's even more of a great value!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  5. I never realized HOW important a primer is for a makeup routine.

  6. I've heard so many good things about the Kiehl's toner-really need to try that out! :)

  7. Wow, I don't have a routine, but then again, I'm lucky if I remember a little blush and lip gloss in the morning. Also, I didn't really know what toner was used for, so thanks for explaining! This is a great reminder to go through my stash and actually start using some of it!

  8. Great list girl, thanks for sharing! I've heard nothing but amazing reviews about Kiehls I think it's time for me hop on that train :)

  9. I haven't tried any of these but the makeup setting spray sounds nice!

  10. I haven't heard about the setting spray before and after, great tip!

  11. I might have to check out that setting spray that you use first! It seems like a decent price and if it works like you say, that is awesome!!!

  12. Thanks for sharing! setting sprays can make such a difference!

  13. I need a good toner. I used to use toner every day and stopped for some reason. Also I need to check out that setting spray!

  14. Dang girl! You are inspiring me to be better about my skincare. Im so basic but I really do need to do something else to keep my skin in line and looking healthy! Definitely going to look into some of these products!

  15. I would never have thought to put the setting spray on before foundation!

  16. I don't generally use toners or settling sprays but that cleanser and primer sound soooo divine.

  17. skin care is right up there along with eating healthy/exercising! i take such good care of my skin because i'm terrified of aging too fast.

  18. I have a skin care routine down pat and I found a sample tube of moisturizer when I was cleaning the other day and I tried it last night, and it burned my face and eyes so bad I had to take out my contacts!! But, that said, I am looking for a new moisturizer so I will have to check out some of these products!

  19. I love this! I need to get a better skin routine! Thanks for sharing!
