I was thinking of doing this for long but then my skincare routine was super simple. But after I moved in to Kolkata, a lot changed – diet, humidity and lifestyle. So, here after a lot of hit and trial, I ended up with this skincare routine. To be true at present, less is more much more. It’s very sensitive now and I cannot use anything harsh on it – no face wash to be specific (other than Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser and I only have few sample left as Kiehl's is not in Kolkata).

♥ Sun Protection ♥
1. Lotus Safe Sun 40 SPF - I usually don’t have much time after I get up and run for office. I also do my makeup in office. So, I clean my face with water. (How I wish I have a bottle of Kiehls Cleanser) and I use Lotus Sunscreen. I generally use the SPF 50 one which is lighter than this one and this 40 SPF one lives in my everyday bag.
I am using them from 2007-08 I guess and I never thought of changing. Ohh wait, I thought of trying and used the Neutrogena one – total yuck – hated the smell, hated the texture and it made my super skin skin super oily (the first time I realized what a curse oily skin is!)
♥ Cleanse ♥
2. Cetaphil Cleansing Lotion for Sensitive Skin – I wash off all the dirt and the sunscreen right after I reach office (don’t want to sit all day with the pollutants on my face huh?). I love it and I am using it for 2 years now.
I got a severe case of ance after my first ever (and only) facial experience. Boy was out of town and we were supposed to go to somewhere for Christmas. I freaked out and went to doc who gave to loads of medicine(which I checked later and found were strong steroids – I guess I freaked him out about my upcoming, much awaited vacation ) and this is something that I continued to use. Not always in fact. I do not keep a stock of this or buy back to back but I always try to have it with me.
♥ Moisturize ♥
3. L’Oreal Revitalift White Day Cream – A very sweet SA gave me a sample of this. I was not sure about using a anti-aging cream but I wanted to included something in my daily routine. Plus it talks about fairness so, I was against it. I am very happy that she forced me to try the sample because I love this. I got the full size two months back. Let me know you want a detailed review.
