Some hormonal acne/congestion popped up on my chin today so tonight’s routine is focused on calming that breakout.

🌿This was my 3rd time using the sample of the Tara Harper Clarifying Mask and I’m not really impressed. I haven’t seen any amazing results 🤷🏻‍♀️I still have some left so I’ll keep trying it out.

• Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid

• Josh Rosebrook Hydration Accelerator –

• Tata Harper Clarifying Mask – applied just on congested areas

• Indie Lee Calendula Eye Balm

• Stratia Liquid Gold + Tamanu Oil

Tonight is retinol night so I tried to keep everything else simple, hydrating and nourishing.

 

Not pictured is makeup removal with Heimish All Clean Balm.

I cleansed with Stratia Velvet Cleansing Milk.

Acid tonight was Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid (I prefer this over an AHA when I am using retinol).

Hydrating toner was Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner. Normally, I would do the Seven Skin Method, but tonight was about a four-ish skin method … I was in too much of a hurry for all seven layers.

Next, I used a thin layer of prescription Tretinoin 0.05%.

Followed by my favorite Indie Lee Calendula Eye Balm focused on the corners of my eyes where I can get very dry.

Finally, I took one pump of Stratia Liquid Gold mixed with four drops of Deciem’s The Ordinary Rose Hip Seed Oil for extra hydration.
