My Face Skin Care Essentials

Hello Ladies,

Hope you all are doing fantastic!! I am doing pretty gooood!! The world looks like a fabulous place to live in!! 😛 Burj Khalifa looks a tad bit taller today, the gold souks look a little more brighter and even more golden, the shawarma tastes a bit more yummier and of course the sun is shining just above me!!! 😛 Such a glorified description right? Anyways, I am plain HAPPY and feel content today!!! Anyways, enough of the jazz, and today I am posting my face skin care essentials! I have posted my summer essentials HERE.

My Face Skin Care Essentials

Basically for everything else there is an alternative and of course I have this itch of trying new products, but there are certain things in my skin care routine, which CAN NEVER CHANGE! I will mention is as we are moving along the post!
A basic skin care regimen consists of these products,

I have combination skin type which doesn’t really MISBEHAVE!!

Face Wash : I keep experimenting with my face washes and cleansers but Garnier Light Fairness Face Wash is like my most trusted one! It is inexpensive and functional. I have reviewed it HERE. No matter how many others I try I have to have a backup with this one!

My Face Skin Care Essentials

Cleanser : I cleanse my face just once at night, which is done very religiously every night after I get rid of makeup or in general wipe off my face with a wipe! After cleansing I wash my face and then tone it!! This is important for getting rid of all the impurities and dirt from the skin. I am using the Eucerin one, currently, and as far it is proving to be nice!!!

Toner : I tone my face twice a day! Once before going to bed and the second time, after my bath! This basically helps with the pores and inner health of the skin!  I am using Eucerin Toner which helps in cleaning up the skin and evening out!

I use these both since ALCOHOL FREE! Anything which has ALCOHOL is bad for the skin over any part of the body in my opinion. SO AVOID!!

My Face Skin Care Essentials

Day Cream : I alternate between my Nivea and Olay day creams! Depends on what I like as a scent that day and what my skin requires!  Both of these are great!

Night Cream : I simply use the Olay Serum, which I reviewed HERE, This in combination with the cream works wonders!!  I loveeee it! This is another product which isn’t changing any soon!

Eye Cream : My current love is the Nivea one, which I reviewed HERE. I love how pleasantly the cream works!!

My Face Skin Care Essentials

Face Masks : Now this is where I am very very enthusiastic! I have never used the famous Montagne Jeunesse I mean I don’t know what’s it which keeps me from buying them, I go to check them and get back empty handed!! So currently I am using my corn flour and egg mask which is a DIY! I am obsessed with the results it shows! Basically it tones and brightens the skin and other than that, I am using my Loccitane Instant Hydrating Mask, from the Angelica range and also the Papaya Face mask from Herbline Essentials! The Nivea face masks are no new story! I love them!! I use them quiet often say, 4 times a week!

face care essentials
Scrubs : For the scrubs, I am loyal with my Nivea one which I reviewed HERE and the Loccitane one, from their Angelica Range!! BLISSSS!! I scrub and exfoliate thrice a week!!I also have thee Nivea strips for blackheads and whiteheads which I use seldom!! 

My Face Skin Care Essentials
Sun Protection : If you live in the gulf regions, I need not tell you how essential this is!! I use the Eucerin sunscreen which I reviewed HERE for my face and body and for the eyes, nose and lips, I use the La Prairie Ultra Protection Stick!!La Prairie is available at all Areej Stores across the region!!

    1. hi Neha,

      Please let me know your budget and what you are looking for!! We have umpteen brands and products here!! Depends on what you are looking for!!

      1. Hi Zeeba,
        I have a budget of 25-30 grand. Im basically looking for some must have makeup and skincare items which arent available in India. I have d naked 2 palette n benefit tints on mind for makeup n d clairsonic mia 2 for skincare. Any other inputs would be of great help.

        1. hey Neha

          you wouldnt get clarisonic here though.. 🙁 and as far as other stuff is concerned.. every brand has new releases and stuff which releases in india late..or doesnt release at all… confused with what to tell yo and what to let go 😛 try eucerin for skin care though

          1. OMG we dont get clairsonic in Dubai !!! that’s heartbreaking :-(..ya will definitely try eucerin products..if u remeber of nethn else please let me knw 😛

  2. I am using Nivea scrub based on your review. :dance2:
    I used Garnier face wash for more than a year but after that i felt my skin was getting more adapated to it and not reacting with other face washes. So i stopped using it, but that was one of the best face wash.

  3. wow!!! thats quite intense!!! M sooooo lazy!!!!!! ur post is inspiring me to atelast follow ctm regularly!!!..Please share how to make the corn flour and eggg mask..:)

  4. Olay day cream
    Olay night cream
    Olay cleanser
    TBS seaweed toner
    La Roche Posay Sunscreen
    Neutrogena Sunblock
    Liz earle eye cream
    Nivea Scrub

    also using my lakme perfect radiance day cream instead of the Olay cream as an alternative. using it for 2 days now and if this works, i wud have found a backup..yayyyy

  5. Great write up..I havenot seen this variety of products for Nivea in US:(. Not seen Eucerine cleanser and Toner as well :(. If any one knows where I get these in US, please do tell me

  6. Hi Zeeba I also have combination skin and have been using Dermalogica all these dayS. Now I feel my skin is used to it and it looks dull! What do u suggest?also what makeup products fo u use religously??

  7. i am soo confused … for selecting facewashes…i am looking for a natural product for my face .. tch tch.. i dint get my st ives tree oil facewash.. other than this is there any other natural facewash bet for oily skin! (for teens)????

    1. why dont u try clean and clear…i love using their face washes..or try garnier is one amazing product. 🙂
