I am a total skincare junkie and am always switching up my routine but I've been sticking with this one for a while and I am pretty happy with it so far. I have normal skin that can get a bit dehydrated in the wintertime. I like to put as much moisture into my skin as possible in the winter without clogging my pores. I try to keep my morning routine more simple since I am always running late and prefer to sleep an extra 5 minutes. Let me know what you use for your morning routine. If you have products you love I would love to hear about them. I also forgot that I do use eye cream but forgot to include this in the post. I am just finishing up a sample right now.
1. Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water, 10.15 oz is $39 USD, Sephora says, "A mineral makeup remover made with botanical extracts. Cleansing Spa Water is Koh Gen Do's bestselling skincare product that is easy and gentle to use for all skin types.

Formulated with Shiseido's highly effective multi-defense sun protection system and advanced skincare ingredients, it prevents skin damage and free radical production."
I also want to mention how much I love the Shiseido cotton pads. They retail for $9.50 USD. They are so worth the money to me and I would never go back to regular cotton pads for my face. All of these products can be purchased at Sephora. I think a lot of them are still sold out though because of the recent sale but they should come back in stock soon.
