Soooo over the last couple of months, I've had numerous people from co-workers to friends to strangers ask me about my skincare regimen and I finally took the time to share the full list of products that I use on a daily basis (this does not include my face mask treatments I do on a weekly basis—I'll share that next time). These are the items I use before I apply makeup and to be honest, I don't always have time to use every single one every morning, but when I do take the time to focus on my face (when I happen to wake up on time and not hit the snooze button a million times), I use the above products in those exact steps.

Let me elaborate on each...

-The Aveeno face wash has been one of my absolute faves for years (like since college)—it's super foamy and feels really good on my face.
-The MAC Lightful C Softening Lotion is more like a toner and it helps even out my skin tone. I mainly use it at night even though it's suggested to be used in the morning.
-I only use this Origins eye gel when my eyes are puffy—it works almost instantly.
-Klurskin's Oil Control Serum is the best one I've used in a long time—it keeps me shine-free for hours and I'm really infatuated with the scent...sooooo fresh and clean.
-Neutrogena's gel-cream smells good, but it literally makes my skin feel like butter. It makes my face feel baby-soft and it's great for my oily skin because it doesn't feel greasy or make my skin shiny at all. It's perfectly hydrating.
-MAC Prep+Prime Natural Radiance is a really great primer—it's actually so moisturizing that I can use it in place of lotion in the morning, but I normally only apply to my cheeks and around my mouth.
-MAC Prep+Prime Skin Refined Zone Treatment is the perfect primer for my t-zone. I have super oily skin, so normally my makeup wears off my t-zone by midday, but with this primer, it keeps my t-zone matte and the makeup fresh.

For all of you with super oily skin, consider trying the above products. They work great for me and if you decide to try any of the above, I hope they work for you too and that you love them as much as I do!
