Simplifying my Skin Routine - Help

ResRes Posts: 2,911Registered Users
I am trying to simplify my routine as well as get rid of things with harsh ingredients.

The only make up I use is eye shadow, eye liner and mascara. It is all new to me so I won't go into that much.

Right now I am using
Purpose cleanser
Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque
CeraVe AM

I want to get rid of the Purpose cleanser. I do like the CeraVe AM so I will continue using it. The masque, I like it, I am just not sure how good it is for my skin. I am still learning about ingredients.

I've been skipping a moisturizer at night but sometimes I will use Cetaphil or Ponds.


I would like to try this routine for my face:
OCM for my cleanser
CeraVe AM

Also, for exfoliating I like Soap & Glory's Greatest Scrub of All. But again I am not sure how good it is.

I want to buy 2% salicylic acid for my blackheads and whiteheads.

Not sure what moisturizer for night.

Is there something I am missing? Should change?

    Anyone? I am looking at Diana Yvonne's stuff but I am not sure what I need or should get.

    I know that Diane Yvonne's AHA cleanser and the wheat germ cleanser are really popular on this board. I haven't tried either of them, though.
