My Skincare Routine


Hi Friends, today I am gonna share my favorite skin care products and my skin care routine with you guys. This was requested by one of the lovely readers of this blog. (Just wanted to make it clear before start writing anything, so that to make everyone sure that I am not some self-obsessed narcisstic person.) 😉

Ok, so first of all a confession: I am a big fan for all Blossom Kochhar’s Aroma magic range. So, this post would be heavily influenced by that aromatic magic. 🙂 And second thing is that I am not much of a person to wear makeup all the time. I am more into natural but glowy looks. That’s why to some of you, may be this would be OTT, but believe me I don’t wear anything at all except these ones. So, let’s have a look at all products. (They are not much, just scattered around to make them look more.) 😀

So let’s start from morning. In morning I use L’oreal Pearl white face wash for cleansing purposes. You can read its review here. Then, since I was having oily skin in my teenage and I didn’t take proper care at that time, I have got some pores on the apples of my cheeks. (Well, I personally believe that traveling did the more harm as I always sat on the window seat and never closed my window. I feel that may be all that air made my pores larger. 😀 Correct me if I am wrong. But I always feel that surely that was the main reason for this problem.)

Ok, now skip to happy ending…. Finally I realized my mistake and have started using Aroma magic’s toner on my face. Well in this pic, what you see is “fairy lotion” and not the actual toner. (But they both work the same way. So, I keep on using them alternatively. The last bottle I had, was of their actual toner.) And the last thing in my daily face routine is Aroma magic’s sun screen lotion. Actually I like Lakme’s sun screen much more than this one. I know many of you would cringe after reading this. Because almost everyone I know, hate that sunscreen. But, it is absolute wonder for my skin. I have used  Biotique’s, Garnier’s and Fair and Lovely’s sun screen lotions in the past, and none of them worked that well. I bought this Aroma Magic’s lotion after hearing so many raves about it. But, to my dismay I found it to be just an average product. But, none the less I am still using it (as I am not of the type to throw some product that fast in case I didn’t like it. For the record, let me tell you that I made a tinted moisturizer with my Biotique’s one. So may be I would find a use of it pretty soon). 🙂

Ok, then I use one of these tiny cute lip-balms. I have been a loyal user of Avon’s strawberry lip-balm from so long that it’s part of my PERSONAL life now. 😉 Apart from that, few months back I discovered this Biotique’s night lip balm (which was an instant HIT for me). I use biotique’s lip balm before going to bed. And for day usage, I either rely on Avon or these beautiful hand-made tinted lip-balms (you can check the tutorial here.) In case any one of you is wondering that what are the decorations of those other two balms “tickle my fancy” and “fire”; those cases are actually covers of memory cards of cell phones and I used some cut-outs from greeting cards to decorate them. *Smart Me!!!* 😉 Well “tickle my fancy” is coral shade and “fire” is a cool toned rosy-pink color.

Then let’s move on to hand care. I use Nivea’s crème in the morning (but, I am not very much regular.) At night time, I apply a mixture of Johnson’s baby oil and glycerin on my hands. They both are the most fantabuluous and economic skin care products on this whole earth. You can check my post here, where I am raving about them.

And now, my night care routine. It is the most simplest of all. 🙂 I just wash my face with same L’oreal cleanser and then apply Aroma Magic’s night repairing cream on my face. For my eye-circles, I use Aroma Magic’s under eye gel (review here). On feet, I use their “feet cream”. These three products are the most favorites of mine and I would just die if at any time they decide to stop making any one of these. On a serious note, this feet crème is having some therapeutic properties too. So, whenever I am going through any temporary phases of insomnia, it works like a total saver.

Now, some tasks are needed to be taken care of either once or twice a week. So, these are the other things which I use. Biocare body scrub (thrice a week) to exfoliate dead skin from body, Aroma Magic’ face scrub (thrice a week) for face. I sometimes use Lotus’ Apricot scrub too, as that is much more easy to use, where as in this one, I need to apply it for 10 minutes on my face before starting any scrubbing. And then since I am lazy, I have used the next two products very rarely. These are Everyouth’s facial peel off and Lotus’ face-masque. But, now I have decided to be more regular with Lotus one.

And now last but not the least (since I am covering almost everything), my body lotions and soap which I absolutely love. I use Johnson’s baby oil and Ponds’ body lotion for my body. (I prefer Ponds one much more, and I am using it from almost a decade now. But sometimes, just to break the monotony, I use this oil too.) And now my all time favorite soap- Pears (I love-love-love its mildness and that’s why Pears’ face wash was one my most used and admired face-cleansers for a very long time.) I am using this soap all around the year, just changing its color according to season; brown (winters), green (summers), sky-blue and pink (whenever I feel like throwing some color in between). 😀 They are just PERFECT for my skin and also because they satisfy my obsession for colors too. 😉

Ok Girls, so I guess that was all. Sorry for such a L-O-N-G post. But, I loved writing it. Hope you would have also enjoyed reading all this self-talk. 😀

    Finally 🙂
    the secret is out 🙂
    Thanx for doing this post

      @Orangeorn: hahahahah.. and now you must have realized that actually there was no secret at all. Because I am pretty much sure that most of the girls just use such kinda stuff on their day to day basis. It’s great to know that you liked the post. Because I was so damn sure that everyone else would be thinking of me as a self-obsessed girl. hahahhah.. 😉

    Hey there, I too believe in natural glowy and no/minimal makeup look. You have got nice haul.
    I am too a huge follower of Aroma Magic. Just got their under eye cream. It is good. I have used there under eye gel too. It made a difference.

    I used to use this sunscreen too. I found it better than others. Maybe using it again this summer.

    Never knew about Aroma magic’s night cream. Is it working for you? I like Garnier’s light night quite much. It hasn’t broke me out yet. I am on the second tub.

    You know, I felt so great seeing that there is no makeup stuff in your haul like me. 🙂 Girls around me are mostly loaded with makeup. Thank God there is someone who blv in living without makeup like me.

    Thanx for making this post sweetie 🙂

      @Orangeorn: Actually dear, I am having a lot of other makeup products too. But, that’s just because I am such a big sucker for all things related to fashion and makeup. I spend almost half day (on normal days) on reading and watching fashion related blogs and videos. 😀 Due to all this blogging habit, I have developed a new habit of collecting makeup in my vanity. 🙂 But, in reality, I wear no makeup at all. It’s just that I like getting dressed up on parties. And that’s the time when that comes out. But otherwise, If we strictly talk about wearing actual makeup on daily basis then I just use Kohl/Kajal pencil and my tinted lip-balms. 🙂

      Have you got Aroma’s Almond under eye cream? As I am using their gel right now. But wanna give that almond eye cream a try too. How was that? And it’s good that their sunscreen suits you. Actually everyone I have ever met (who has used this) told me the same thing. But, I don’t know why I like Lakme one much more than this one. May be it’s just me behaving wierdly sometimes.. 😉 And yes, their night cream is wonderful. Indeed wonderful. You would actually see the difference in your skin after using it. Well, I have not used Garnier’s one, so can’t say that which one is better. How’s Garnier one?

      And now sweetie, you have actually made me very curious to know your skin care routine too. 😀 If possible, when ever you get some time, do write me about your special secrets too. I would love to know about them. 🙂

    Hey Shruti, I too like using kajal and lip balm. You just can’t escape without these two things in everyday life. But yeah sometimes it feels good to slip into foundation and blush too.. Party look is required when you attend one 🙂
    I am too a great follower of beauty blogs. My fav pass time is to visit beauty blogs. I have troublesome skin so I am constantly in search of such products which might suit my oily and acne prone skin.

    I am using this Aroma magic almond eye cream from 3-4 days only, but found it highly moisturizing. Its too early to forecast its effect in terms of diminishing dark circles under my eyes. I have deep set eyes, so I am very prone to get dark circles. That under eye gel too worked like a charm, but once leave using a under eye product the effect goes away too. So this tym I will not stop using it.
    That sunscreen suits me maybe coz I have oily skin, and that sunscreen has cucumber in it. 🙂
    Rest of the sunscreens feels quite heavy/greasy on my skin.

    Garnier’s light night cream is I guess, perfect night cream for me. It feels lil greasy when you apply but after few minutes, my skin soaks it so well that i don’t feel greasy anymore, and after using 2 nights in a row I saw great glow on my face 🙂 So this product is now in my “forever there” list.
    Apart from these products, these days I have been using tea tree face wash from jovees, earlier was using from lotus. I also use S.tives scrub, My skin can’t live widout a scrub and s.tives is just perfect for my skin. I use Clean and clear oil free moisturizer afterwords.
    To fight acne/pimples I use clean n clear acne clearing moisturizer for spot treatment.
    This is my haul 🙂

    Also I like using gram flour/sandalwood powder/lemon/curd mixture to detan my complexion on a regular basis.
