I must be abnormally conservative in my use of products I just don't like exposing my face to many chemicals and things like that.
I wash my face twice a day with burt's bees natural tomato complexion soap. I use neutrogena spf30 sunscreen everyday before I put on my makeup (which is fairly minimal). I use burt's bees bee's wax lip balm as needed.
I wash my hair everyday now, which is a shock to me because I just cut my hair and when it was waist-length I only washed it once a week! I use cheap old herbal essences...
i must be a skin-care junkie when compared to you guyz!
in the morning, i wash my face with Estee Lauder's 'Splash Away' foaming cleanser, followed by shiseido's day moisturizer, & Uriage sun protection cream. & in the evening i wash away any makeup i got with the same foaming cleanser followed by shiseido's night moisturizer & vitamine C drops around the eyes.
i exfoliate my face once a week with Estee Lauder's face scrub, & follow that with a facial mask (EL's 'So Clean' or homemade yoghurt & yeast mask) -- sometimes i put on a mask twice a week
as for my body, i use a moisturizing scented lotion/cream every single night before i go to bed ALL OVER, & when my husband is away i put on BeneFit's Sandal Scandal foot cream with their pompom booties, it works wonders!

i used to use it as well, it's excellent! but after a while became a bit drying for me
anyway, i try to keep my routine as hassle-free as possible, but as i 'm getting a little older it's a little harder
in the morning i use Guinot cleanser & apply Decleor moisturizer. for lips i use Kiehl's Lip balm. before going to bed i use Guinot cleanser or NV Perricone Pore Refining cleanser, followed by Janet Sartin pore cleansing toner. every few days i exfoliate with Guinot Gommage. for eye cream i use Estee Lauder.
i wash my hair every other day with Garnier shampoo (the best i've ever used for my hair) & do not use condiitoner. in teh evening i also use Vera Wang body lotion or L'Occitane body lotion.
you guys are going to think i am a real product whore.. especially for someone who is only 19
daily routine is as follows:
toner- shiseido pureness balancing softner, been testing out Armani Water in Gel softening lotion and so far so good
serum- chanel eclat originel radiance revealing serum
moisturizer- chanel hydramax balanced hydrating gel (i use the cream in winter)
eye cream- loreal hydrafresh eyes. i hate this though. it feels as cheap as it costs leaves my under eye area looking and feeling quite greasy. i'm still looking for a new eye cream though, if i dont find a good one i'll go back to using my old one (clinique all about eyes)
now for haircare, i wash my hair once every 2 days
shampoo- aveda pure fume brilliant
conditioner- testing out a VO5 one right now
leave in conditioner- aveda elixir
styling product- aveda light elements finishing solution.
I think the most important thing you should do to take care of your skin is use moisturizer!! Even if you think your skin is oily. I've heard mixed things about toner, that it often is not really necessary. I use moisturzier in the morning and at night. And an exfoliator off and on. I just tried Prada's moisturizer for the first time recently, and it's super nice....a rich creme. But I use Elizabeth Arden. And I wear sunblock every day on my face, which I also think is a must! One of my friends tans so much that she already has wrinkles and you can see that she's going to be one of those leathery-skinned type people, which sucks.

i used loreal eye makeup remover forever... and then decided to get benefit eye remover which came in a cute bottle (I am a sucker for nice packaging) and was doubly as expensive... anyway, under my eyes i have been so dry and it looks and feels HORRIBLE. I kept thinking what am I doing different and then I thought !!!! make up remover!!! I am back to loreal forever... goes to show more expensive is not always better..
