I'm terrible so don't judge me.

I don't always wash my face before bed, even if I put on makeup (which I rarely do). I use either Clearasil Face Wash or Purpose in the shower. My skin isn't dry and it doesn't break out and I never use sunblock even though I'm so pale it's almost sickly. I use a light moisturizer only if I'm putting on foundation after so it goes on smoother but I can't tell the difference in my looks so I usually don't bother.

I would give anything to get pimples only on my back and not my face.

heck i hardly ever wash my face. i mean yeah i clean it but in the traditional sense of scrubbing it with a washcloth and soap, no. On occasion i will put a dab of body wash in my hands and gentle scrub my face but usually the only soap my face sees is the shampoo running over it when i rinse my hair. Even then i rarely get zits and my face is as clear as can be. guess im just blessed. i remember when i was a kid my Dad would wash his face like 3 times a day and would try to get me to do the same. I was like "why? i dont need to" and I was right.

After it's done it's thing, I put a moisturizing lotion on and then when I wake up I also have to put the moisturizing lotion on.

Along with countless trips to the spa to get different facial things performed because my face is so prone to acne and ugly skin problems. Half my income probably goes to my face.
Whoa. That does sound like an attack. Have you ever considered getting a prescription for accutane?

Morning:

Wash face with Andalou Cleansing Milk
Boots No. 7 protect and perfect eye cream
Boots No. 7 protect and perfect serum
Andalou facial moisturizer w/ spf18
Body lotion on the body

If I put make-up on that day I dust on some minerals powder, bronzer on the cheeks, a pale eyeshadow, line my lids with powder liner, and throw on some mascara and lip gloss.

Night:

Remove make up with Neutrogena oil free make-up remover
wash face with Andalou Cleansing Milk
Boots No. 7 protect and perfect eye cream
Boots No. 7 protect and perfect serum
Andalou night cream

I heard a lot of people who swear by vaseline (including Tyra Banks. And she does look good without makeup except for the dark circles) but I'm afraid to use it because it seems to be on the oilier side.

Same scenario here. I think its the hormones calming down. I still do concealers and BB Cream for coverage for uneven skin tone and dark circles.

I use it, but my skin is dry. Great for shaping unruly eyebrows, dealing with dry heels and elbows. Also good for your lips. And to remove makeup in a pinch.

I always keep some around. It takes me longer to use up than my mom.

I'm a guy, 26 years old.

Every morning =
Facial cleanser
facial moisturizer

Every night =
lotion to entire body
facial cleanser
facial moisturized

The morning, I usually make sure to go through the routine, but I often miss my nightly sessions.

Castile soap. Maybe a little olive oil as moisturizer, that's it. The less chemicals the better.
