I wanted to start a thread to see what everyone uses on a day-to-day basis. Feel free to also add in weekly or monthly treatments that you use to achieve your desired results. Oh and also feel free to include your skin type and age (only if desired!
). Here's mine:

25 yrs, very oily and acne prone!

A.M.:
Olay Gently Foaming Cleanser
Stridex Power Pads
Jergens Daily Glow Face SPF 20

P.M.:
Olay Gently Foaming Cleanser
Neutrogena 3-in-1 Stress Control Hydrating Treatment
Acne.org Benzoyl Peroxide Treatment
If dry/flakey, moisturize with CeraVe
If extra dry, a few drops of jojoba oil to moisturizer

I also add in an at home 50% lactic peel when I think of it. I'd like to get into doing it once every 2 weeks. Once I'm through it, I'm planning on switching to a salicylic peel to address clogged pores.

For makeup I use:

L'Oreal True Match concealer
Makeup Forever Duo Mat Powder Foundation
Cargo Beach Bunny Blush
Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara
Other eye makeup varies from day to day!

I'm interested to know what everyone else uses, maybe we can all learn from each other!

I have quite a lazy routine!

Morning:

Rinse skin with plain cool/cold water (helps with puffy skin and I cannot be bothered to turn on the hot water just for 2 minutes washing my face!) (I only use a cleanser in the morning if I have had a busy night IYSWIM!)
Then apply moisturiser (Nuxe at the moment) if I am staying in for a few hours, or SPF cream (L'Oreal Matte SPF20) and no moisturiser (I tried both and my skin felt too clogged) if I am going out for the day.

Lunch time, by now, if I have not gone out yet, I will be, so I rinse my face again, and apply SPF cream and leave.

Make up (usually applied on public transport if I am just using eye makeup but some times at home)
All days...
Olay Daily serum to even out my skin
Mascara (I have collected around 17....it varies as to what I wear- at the moment its Clinique)
Eyeliner Bonjours pen-liner
Chanel or Mac eye make-up
Stila Convertible cheek
Some times...
Maybelline minerals foundation
YSL Touch Eclait highlighter,
Benefits concealer if things are really bad!


Evening after a gym workout. (5 nights a week)
I wash my face with a mild exfoliator (Varies, Dermalogica is my fave but at the moment I am broke and am using Olay which I got for 88p from Boots with a deal) and then apply a mild daily moisturiser- usually a freebie or free sample. It varies daily. I don't like carrying heaps of bottles around -hence only using freebies, and have been known to skip the moisturiser!

Night time
Wash face with cleanser (Euricel) with lukewarm water
Remove eye makeup (Clinique Take the Day Off)
Tone with either a toner and cotton wool pads, or a facial wipe.(Nivea or anything else I can get my hands on) if I could afford it I would buy Clinique as it does make all the difference for my skin.
Apply a night cream. Nuxe Nivanessque (or something like that) or Khiel's Ultra.

Done!

Night cream is dense enough some times that after rinsing it off in the morning, I feel I don't always need moisturiser.

I don't know if you're in Canada or not, but I saw the St. Ives scrub for $2.99 on special at Shopper's Drug Mart. You could save yourself a few bucks if you jump on that and pick up a few tubes.
