Current Skincare Routine
While I try my best to keep my skincare routine as basic and simple as possible, my oily-combination characteristic and a resident stubborn acne problem always have me on my toes – trying different products (some work while some don’t). Right here are my regular featuring skincare products that I use daily on my face, some even twice or thrice (depending on the size of the problem)
(1) Estee Lauder – Advanced Night Repair Eye Cream
My night time eye cream. Complete review HERE.
(2) The Body Shop – Tea Tree Oil
Each time I wash my face with the (6) face-wash, I apply my eye cream (1), and then apply the Tea Tree oil all over my face to get rid of any remaining bacteria. This is especially helpful with acne.
(3) Chanel – Le Lift Crème Fine
On days my skin is calm and behaving properly, I apply this lifting cream over-night. Its a luxurious treatment that leaves the facial skin super soft and supple in the morning. I use this about once a week. Complete review HERE.
(4) La Roche-Posay – Effaclar Duo Dual Action Acne Treatment
This is literally my magic wand for the acne issues that I have. With 5.5% Benzoyl Perioxide, its a very effective acne treatment for me. I apply this over the Tea Tree Oil (2) after it has dried up. The tube has a very narrow nozzle which keeps the ingredients active and fresh for usage each time. I don’t use my fingers for apllying this. I direct the nozzle on top of my problem areas/spots/active pimples/suspicious whiteheads and just put a dot on it. That’s it. It does tend to dry and flake the skin, but I don’t mind that since it takes care of the problem much faster than any other product I’ve seen.
(5) Cetaphil – Sunscreen SPF 50+
This one’s a no-brainer. Always ALWAYS have my sunscreen handy each time I step out of the house. I apply my sunscreen over all the products.
(6) Sebamed – Clear Face Cleansing Foam
This is my go-to face-wash. Especially meant for acne-prone skin, I apply the foam on my cheeks, forehead and chin and let it sit for 3-5 minutes after which I rinse it off.
(7) Sephora – Instant Moisturizer
I am not very particular about my moisturizers, as long as I have one that’s not too heavily loaded with fragrance. This one is a basic moisturizer that hydrates the skin very well when I need it. I use this only during the day however.
(8) Clinique – Super Defense SPF 20 Eye Cream
This is my day-time eye cream. It saves me the trouble of having to apply sunscreen over my eyes and it also brightens the eyes incase you want to go for a makeup free look. I cannot stress more on making sure that you apply sunscreen on your eyes too if you are wearing an eye cream that does not have an SPF.
Do you use any of these products? I would love to know about your skincare routine!

Its nice to read about your real skincare routine and what you really use on your skin everyday and that you have real-girl problems like acne. Thanks for sharing
I too love tea tree oil but using it all over the face? instead of that you can use a tea tree toner from TBS which is equally good and then use the oil. I tried it and it really works.
Hi Akanksha ! Can you review the Clinique Super Defence SPF 20 eye cream. I use Cliniques ‘All about eyes’ rich. But during the day I need something with SPF
Could you please tell me which cream do you use at night? Do you use a separate, heavier moisturizer or just the Sephora moisturizer for night time as well?
Hi Freihawander, I have mentioned in the post that I sometimes use the Chanel Le Lift on days my skin seems to be calm. Apart from this I used to like using the Kiehl’s midnight recovery oil because your skin is just fabulous the next morning but I stopped using that when my acne issues came up.
Apart from the Cetaphil could you suggest some other sunscreens that I can use for my face. I have oily skin too and would like a more mattifying sunscreen.
Hi Bharti, apart from cetaphil you can try the vichy and avene sunscreens. They both have matte sunscreens as well and are suited for oily or acne prone skins. Hope that helps!!
Hey can you please tell me a cream for dark skin.
Hi Maria, The color of the skin should not matter if you are looking for a regular moisturizer. It is the type of skin that you should pay attention to – oily, dry or combination. You should ideally go for a moisturizer that is best suited for the type of skin you have.
I used Roop mantra fairness face cream, Roop mantra herbal face wash and Roop Mantra Ayurvedic Capsule only for 3weeks and i get best results. Roop Mantra Is really Natural aryurvedic creams and best ayurvedic face wash. No Side effects.. its awesome.

Nice Post ! I am using Mastani Skin Care Product of Amruta Pharma with incredible outcomes. And also, my face skin gets saturated inside one week.
nice to read the blog .keep up the work.
wow very nice article’s. thanks
I would like to try cetaphil sunscreen but little afraid as once a dermatologist told me to restrain from using sunscreen as it is not ideal for my skin. Could you please tell me whether this particular suncreen is good enough for all types of skin ?
Cetaphil is a pretty great brand especially for sensitive skin. You can also try Bioderma, that’s what I’ve been using for quite some time.
Impressive, Thanks for the post. Got new information from your post, you are doing a great job. Good Luck!
