One day as I was throwing extra products in my bag because I had to finish my face-hydration routine enroute to someplace, I wondered how many skincare products other folks use every day. So this week, the Lipstick League question is this: How many skincare items do you use daily?
Yep, as per that compilation photo above, I use about 10 items every single day. (Treatment masks and physical exfoliants I use every few days don't count for this.) The precise product changes as I try new things, but this is the most recent collection, with the exception of a Laneige BB Cushion that I nearly included because of its SPF 50 – when I wear that, I skip the separate sunscreen.
I have a habit of going on and on in these Lipstick League posts; I'm trying to be brief today. But if you'd like me to expound on why I like and use the above items, I can do that in a new post. I'd really like to know how many skincare products you use, though, so don't forget to tell me in the comments!
