My Skin Care Routine

Next week I'm planning to write about my makeup routine (it was requested under previous giveaway post), so I decided to share my skin care routine with you first. I have normal skin, that can be dehydrate sometimes, specialy now in winter. I have very dry skin around my nose, under my eyes and on my forehead. My day and night routine aren't very different, the only difference is that I don't use micellar water and eye makeup remover in the morning and that I'm currently using different creams for day and night. I read somewhere that girls don't put any cream on their face at night, because they leave their skin to breathe, but if I do that I wake up with dry, tighten skin, that can be also  ichy. That happens to my skin in the winter, when it's not moisturized propetly. I don't use any expensive products, it's mostly all drugstore and some of these are my holy grail products for a long time now. But I'm always curious to try new products when it comes to skin care.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water
I use it in my night routine to remove face makeup. It works great for me. I usually use three cotton pads to remove my makeup and then I wash my face with water. I tried to use it for eye makeup too, but I prefer Ombia remover. I usually use Garnier only when I'm wearing minimal makeup on eyes (eyeshadow+mascara). But it's not the best product for removing mascara, I always have problems with that. It doesn't dry my skin and it doesn't leave a film on it as by some other girls. Micellar water has become my favourite remover for face makeup and maybe I'll test some from other brands as well, but I think this one is great drugstore micellar water - you get 400 ml for around 6 € and that will last you for quite some time.

Ombia Eye Makeup Remover
I finished many bottles of this remover. It's duo remover, one side is oil based, and it removes eye 
 makeup perfectly. It also removes waterproof makeup without any problems (I'm using waterproof eyeliner). It doesn leave a film on eyes after usage, but I usually wash my face with water after I use it and then it's gone. It's available only in Hofer for less than 3€. As you can see on photo I almost finished it, but I couldn't find it in the store, so I took Garnier duo makeup remover instead. I'll see how I'll like that one.


Garnier Pure Active 3in1 Wash, Scrub and Mask
This is a product for oily skin actually. The thing is I ran out of my cleanser on Saturday evening and on Sunday drugstores aren't open, so I bought the only cleanser that was available in Špar - Garnier Pure Actice 3in1. I have to admit that I don't like it very much. It doesn't dry my skin and it cleans it nicely, but it bothers me that this is not a product for one purpose, but for three. I wanted a product for washing my face, not a peeling and a mask as well. It contains small grains and that bothers me, because I use it twice a day and they are annoying for regular usage. For washing my face regular I would prefer product without grains, then it would be perfect. I also hate the smell. I don't know what's wrong with it, but I just don't like it. I decided that I'll finish this product (if I already bought it), but then I'll buy other cleanser. I was very satisfied with Balea Mildes Waschgel, maybe I'll repurchase it. I bought Garnier Pure Actice 3in1 for around 6€.


Balea Aqua Serum
I already said that this is my holy grail product. I use it in my morning and also night routine. When I apply it I wait for few minutes that it soaks into the skin and then I use a face cream. I wrote about this products last week in My Fight Agains Dry Skin post, so read more there.

Mixa Anti-dryness Cream with 10% glycerine
I also mentioned this cream in My Fight Agains Dry Skin post. I use it as a day cream, becuase it's perfect as a makeup base. It soaks into skin quickly, it doesn't leave it shiny, but the skin feels soft and moisturized. And you don't need much product for a whole face. It's available in DM and Müller (maybe somewhere else as well) for around 6€.

Weleda Skin Food
Another product I mentioned in My Fight Agains Dry Skin post. I use it around my nose area every night before I go to bed and then in the morning I woke up with soft and good looking skin. If I don't moisture my nose, the skin peels off (it looks like when you have a cold and you're cleaning your nose a lot and then your skin peels off, if you know what I mean). I also use it in the morning sometimes, if I don't do makeup or I'll do it later in the day, because it needs a bit more time to soak in. It's available in DM for 10€.

Soraya World of Nature cream with argain oil
I started using this cream one month ago. At the beginning I was using it as s day cream, but it wasn't the best base for makeup, so I stared to use it as a night cream. I love it. It's light, but it moisturize skin perfectly and in the morning I always wake up with soft and good looking skin. It doesn't feel ichy or tighten (as it did when I was using Balea night cream), which I love. I'll write a longer review next week. It's available on Soraya site for 12,72€.


Avon Natural Herbal Dog Rose&Aloe face mask
I use different masks, but this one is my favourite at the moment. I bought it in Avon catalogue for 2€, but I can't say if it's still available, I haven't check new catalogue for a while. For me this is refreshing and smoothing mask (although it should be cleansing mask, but I'm not so sure about that). Right after I apply it on my face it feels very refreshing and when I wash it off, the skin is smooth. It doesn't dry it, but it doesn't feel specially moisturizing. I still have it for few usages and I think I'll repurchase it.

Balea Creme Peeling
I'm loving this peeling, because it really works. It's a thicker peeling with quite rough grains, so if you have sensitive skin I do not recommend it to you, it'll be just to rough for you. I spread it all over my face, massage for one minute and then wash it off. My skin is very soft and smooth after that and it's not red at all. By my opinion it removes dead skin perfectly. I also have to mention that it doesn't dry my skin. I bought it a while ago, so I don't remember the price exactly, but I bet it's not more than 2€ or 3€. I think I still have enough product for one or two usages in the packaging.

Alverde Aqua Peeling Perle
Because I was running out of Balea peeling, I wanted to try new peeling and I took this one from Alverde. Big mistake. I used it few times to test it, but I'm thinking to throw it away. It's more gentle than Balea peeling and for some people it might works fine, but not for me and I can't use it, because I hate the scent. It's smells like cleaning product for my toilet. Ugh. I'm also blaming alcohol (which is on a second place on indigredients list) for drying my skin. I wanted to mention it in this post because I was using it in Februar, but I also wanted to say, that stay away from this product. It stinks and it does nothing.


Balea Urea Eye Cream with 5% Urea
When I was editing photos, I noticed that I forgot to conclude Balea eye cream on them. I'm liking it. It helps moisturizing under eye area and it soaks into skin fast if I don't use it too much. The price is around 3€ .


Have you try any of these products? Are there any great skin products you would suggest me to try in the future? Thank you for reading!
