I was just curious what everyone does for their facial care routine each morning (and/or night) - and what product(s) they use.

Thumbs up Best Face products EVER!!!

I use Oxy Maximum Stregnth Face Pads every night before bed. It keeps my face completly clear. Also I use Olay Face Scrub with the micro beads in them when I take a shower. You could use it in the morning. Also There is a cream called Zapzyt. Put a dab on individual pimples at night and in the mornigng they will be gone! Literally dispears in the morning. I think Olay products leave your skin more smooth and even toned. All these products are the best I have found. You can find them at any CVS or Walgreens. Let me know how you like them

I use my clarisonic twice a day (am and pm), after a.m. cleansing, I use Cleocin-T, a prescription topical acne treatment, let that dry, then use spf 50 face sunscreen. and an spf lip balm.
in the p.m., after cleansing, I use Tazorec, another prescription exfoiliant, then a soothing eye cream (use it around my lips, too!) then a rich lip balm before bed.
*with my clarisonic, I use a gentle, deep pore cream cleanser from Olay.

In the mornings, I use a vitamin C serum from Arbonne followed by the gold moisturizer from BeautiControl. On occasion, when my eyes are a little puffy in the mornings, I use Kiehl's Eye Alert. At night, I cleanse with BeautiControl gold foaming cleanser, followed by toner, moisturizer and eye cream (also from BeautiControl). Once a week, I do a deep cleansing scrub. I'm not a BeautiControl rep, I just really like their products!

I bought this little round (soft, not wicker/brilo pad feeling) face scrubber, and I spend a few minutes with it and my handy-dandy jar of Noxzema to wash my face, with warm water (and when I'm done, rinsing it in cold water to close the pores).

I can't say that I do it like clockwork when I should, but if I neglected to do it the night before, I'll do it in the morning, or vice versa. After I'm done, I usually finish with smoothing in a layer of cocoa butter (vaseline sells the best I've used so far) - don't skimp and by the cvs or walgreens brand, they're just not the same! It has vitamins in it that helps to even out my skin tone, without feeling all nasty and greasy or oily like other lotions I've crossed paths with previously, and after my vigorous noxzema scrub, rinse, and lotion, my face feels lovely!

Disclaimer : my facial care routines are subject to change, depending on how late I am for work, whether I am wearing make-up still from the night before, or whatnot

I use Noxzema every morning and evening. And to take off my makeup also.

Then after I have washed, I put in a facial moisturizing lotion on.

The first day of every month I put on a facial exfoliating mask made of mint julep and guacamole. I leave it on for 1-2 hours and then rinse it off. Then I dry and put on the moisturizer.

During the summer I wear lots of sunscreen for my face also (SPF 20). And then put a dab of makeup on.

In the morning, I use Dr. Denese face wash, which exfoliates. Then use either her serum or Mary Kay's, Cold Plasma, and then Dr. Denese moisturizer. At night, I use Dr. Perricone's nutritive face wash or Kate Somerville's with the clarisonic, Dr. D's exfoliating pads, cold plasma and Dr. D's moisturizer. Eye cream is either Philosophy or Clinique usually.

In the a.m. I use OXY facial cleanser. I have used every facial cleanser out there and I still go back to the simple basics. Oil of Olay Complete moisturizer. Try to exfoliate (when I can remember). I am a simple gal and don't have the patience for putting alot of time into my facial routine. I know I should but I just don't...thank goodness for good genes!

I don't have a night routine.

1. Wash face with plain water.

2. Moisturize if it skin feels tight or dry.

That's all.

Alpha Hydrox AHA Enhanced Lotion + Ph Balanced Facewash
Spot Treat w/ Honey or Mineral Concealor to clear skin

I am in cheapo mode currently. I just use a fresh white scrubby washcloth (bulk buys from walmart) with the Alpha Hydrox facewash in the shower

Night: (sometimes) Clean off make-up with olive oil and rinse with warm water if skin is clear. If I am totally breaking out my cheap fix is olive oil cleanse washed out with a dot of anti-bacterial dawn dishsoap. <<==Seriously amazing cheap fix. Dawn does faces AND dishes. LOL. It has to be the anti-bacterial kind to work best (without bleach)
