My skincare routine has been all over the place but I tried to do my best when my husband and I were traveling the last week and a half. I did pretty good with my PM routine actually, and these are the products I ended up using. I'm thrilled I didn't pack too much more than this either!
I ended up using the sample size Malin + Goetz Grapefruit Face Cleanser almost every day for my AM and PM routines. I think this is a great fuss-free everyday cleanser, and I love using it when I'm not in the mood to deal with balms, oils or jellies. (#lazy!) It has a very light scent, and despite being a gel sort of cleanser, I don't find it to be drying or stripping at all.
I did use my Tatcha Polished Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder* a few times, which I was happy to have for the days I felt my skin could use a bit of exfoliation. I've talked about it before, but I just love this cleanser at any time of day.
In the morning after cleansing, I ended up using the travel size of Fresh Black Tea Age Delay Instant Infusion and Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum. Both worked well for my skin, although I don't think either one are "wow" products for me. The Fresh toner actually smelled like tea though, so that was fun for me. We'll see how I like it once I use it up! I've also shared my thoughts on how I find the Estee Lauder serum to be a workhorse serum here. (Aka nothing about it is exciting to me but it really does just work!) Lastly, I topped it all off with the Tatcha Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen*, which I've been loving all summer.
At night, I kept it pretty simple after cleansing and just used my Belif First Aid Anti-Hangover Soothing Mask. I'm literally obsessed. Actually I did just repurchase a new one recently, and I still love it as much as I did when I first started using it. I did wish I had brought some sort of spot treatment, which I apparently forgot but really needed. Ugh! The other skincare items I brought were travel size masks which I didn't end up using cause I was lazy!
