It’s a very nice product.

My toner

After that, I’ll use Biologique Recherche P50W. I put some micellar water on a little bit cotton pad, then put the P150W on that moist pad so it’s not absolutely concentrated. I take advantage of that on my face and my neck. 

My serum

My retinol

The retinol that I take advantage of is tremendous good for delicate pores and skin; it’s Senté Bio Full Serum. It is a new addition for me. I used to be so scared to make use of retinol because the final one I attempted made me appear like a scaly monster. However now, on some nights I can even use a retinol instead of the toner. I’ll simply cleanse and put a retinol on, after which do serum and a lip masks. 

My lip masks

I placed on the Laneige lip masks and name it an evening.

My sunscreen

I take advantage of SkinCeuticals SPF 50 tinted sunscreen every single day. It’s very nice as a result of it’s mild and provides you a little bit little bit of a tint, however it’s not make-up. I’ll put on that with a little bit concealer and simply name it a day if I’m not doing something.
