New And Improved Skincare Roundup

One of the questions I get the most is what my skincare routine looks like in the AM and PM. I have been using quite a few new products, many of them cult items that are becoming quite popular, and I wanted to test them out for myself to see if they are truly worth the hype/conducive to my own skincare needs. Alright, let’s cut to the chase and get started!
A.M. ROUTINE
I tend to keep my morning routine pretty standard since I am usually in a hurry to get somewhere. However, I have added a couple of new products to my routine to help with some dark spots/old acne scars. Below you will find my skincare product line up in order of how I use/apply them:
1.) Cleanse with Boscia Charcoal Cleanser (great for oily skin like mine)
2.) Sunday Riley UFO Acne Treatment Face Oil (this is a new product for me. I started using it about a month ago when I read that it’s great for helping with cystic acne, which is something that I struggle with periodically)
3.) Sunday Riley CEO Vitamin C Rapid Flash Brightening Serum (also a new product as my esthetician recommended adding Vitamin C to my skincare routine and I am loving the results. My skin is bright and I swear after only two days of use, my scarring is disappearing before my eyes!)
4.) Verso Antioxidant Turmeric Booster (another new product that helps protect my skin from the outside world!)
5.) Glossier sunscreen, Drunk Elephant Tinted Sunscreen (always always always wear a sunscreen. I have been testing out tinted sunscreens and I also really want to try this one next)
P.M. ROUTINE
Nighttime is where things alternate quite a bit as I can only use some products intermittently in conjunction with each other. I do most of my masking at night time too since I like to let the effects of the masks sink in when I sleep.
Monday/Wednesday/Friday
1.) Double Cleanse: First I cleanse/take my make up off with Dr. Dennis Gross’s Pore Perfecting Cleansing Oil and then follow up cleanse with Boscia’s Charcoal Cleanser
2.) Dr. Dennis Gross Extra Strength Peel Pads: I use these 3 x per week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday). By far one of my favorite things I’ve added to my weekly nighttime routine. You will feel these babies working right away and you will see the difference in your skin after just one use (more even texture and GLOW) and it gets even better the more you use them.
3.) Sunday Riley CEO Vitamin C Rapid Flash Brightening Serum: Two pumps for the entire face/neck every night
4.) Immediately after use, I follow up with Angela Caglia’s Oil and Verso’s eye cream and that’s it. Don’t want to overdo it when you use these powerful peel pads.
Tuesday
1.) Double Cleanse as directed above
2.) Verso Enzyme Peel: I use this 1-3 x per week depending on my skin’s needs (typically Tuesday’s)
3.) Sunday Riley CEO Vitamin C Brightening Serum
4.) Follow up with a moisturizer like Angela Caglia’s Souffle Moisturizer and/or Sunday Riley Luna Oil.
Thursday
1.) Double cleanse as directed above
2.) Sunday Riley CEO Vitamin C Brightening Serum
3.) Sunday Riley Luna Oil (just a few drops go a long way!)
4.) Sunday Riley Good Genes Lactic Acid: I use this product when I am not doing a peel as to not irritate my skin. Apply this over Sunday Riley Luna Retinol Night Oil. Incredible product that helps with EVERYTHING!
Saturday
1.) Double cleanse as directed above
2.) Apply Drunk Elephant Baby Facial for 20 minutes: This is by far one of my all time favorite masks I have ever used. Not only does it tingle so you know it’s working, you will emerge post-mask with the most radiant and smooth looking and feeling skin. I have been really working on some of my trouble areas (old acne scars and skin resurfacing in the chin area) and this product is a freaking miracle working. I honestly felt like my scars faded over night. INCREDIBLE. Avoid Retinols post mask!
3.) Drunk Elephant Marula Facial Oil (a small sample comes with the Baby Facial!)
Sunday 
1.) Double cleanse as directed above
2.) Sunday Riley CEO Vitamin C Brightening Serum
3.) Sunday Riley Luna Oil (just a few drops go a long way!)
4.) Sunday Riley Good Genes Lactic Acid: I use this product when I am not doing a peel as to not irritate my skin.
I have also added three supplements to my skincare routine. In the morning, I take one Evening Primrose pill (bought at Trader Joe’s), one DHT Blocker (bought here), and two Acidophilis pills (also bought at Trader Joe’s). In the evening, I take one DHT Blocker and one Evening Primrose. This has helped my skin DRAMATICALLY! No more ¬†cystic acne outbreaks and I have been using them for about 5 months!
I hope this helps your skin as it did mine!
