A.M. Skincare Routine

The list of products that I MIGHT use in the morning is long, but I don’t use them all everyday. Nor do I do use the same routine everyday. Depends on my plans and how my skin is feeling, but below is each product that reserves a special place in my a.m. lineup.

Real talk: some mornings when I know I’m not wearing makeup, I just splash water on my face or spray it with Mario Badescu’s Facial Spray. Though, I do usually wash my face – it wakes up me and up and feels good, and it’s good for my skin.


All products are linked in the descriptors below each product.


Clinique Liquid Facial Soap – So simple, but so good. (see more in my p.m. skincare routine)


Clinique Clarifying Lotion – I adore this toner because it makes my skin feel so fresh and clean. I usually switch it up between this and the one below depending on how my skin feels. I love the Clinique toner when my skin feels like it needs a pick me up or I’m breaking out.


First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads – like I said before, I switch these up with the Clinique toner above. I love these. Especially when I’m in a rush because the pads are already soaked with toner. 


Clarins Double Serum – I use this morning and night. See my P.M. Skincare Routine.


Pixi Collagen Eye Serum – I also this morning and night. It plumps up my under-eye area. I love it. See P.M. Skincare routine for more details.


Mario Badescu Facial Spray – Holy Grail product. I use it after I put on my serum to seal it all in (and because why not?), to set my makeup, and if I’m not washing my face to just wake it up. Love it so much. The rose spray is shown here, but they also have a Lavender & Chamomile and a Green Tea spray. They’re all awesome.


Kate Somerville Exfolikate Glow Moisturizer – this stuff is wonderful. It really does make you glow. It’s a little bit thicker, so I switch it up with the Clinique Moisture Surge for my moisturizer step. It smells so fresh and citrusy and really makes your skin looks great.


Clinique Moisture Surge – is technically a moisturizing mask OR you can wear it under makeup. I choose to wear it under makeup because it creates such a beautiful canvas. It makes my skin so smooth and really sets it up for makeup or just to enjoy feeling smooth and luxurious 🙂


Clinique All About Eyes Rich – HG eye cream! Love this stuff. See P.M. Skincare Routine for more details. 


Maybelline Lash Sensational Boosting Eyelash Serum – again, more details in my evening skincare regimen, but I really feel like this has protected my eyelashes from breakage before, during and after mascara.
