1. Oil (milk) cleanser 8. Eye cream 3. Exfoliator
6. Serum 2. Water-based cleanser (castile soap) 10. Sun protection

I made the sheet mask optional because I’m not a fan of one-time use products, which are invariably made of plastic, wrapped in plastic, not biodegradable, etc. And this whole ten steps of products makes me feel most un-environmental already. I also recommend this other German (Weleda) cleansing milk and this serum I liked even more from the same TruSkin brand. I also like the Eau Thermal Avene cleansing foam, which is probably more like what the water-based cleanser is supposed to be. My sister has been pushing me to self-care and have more of a skincare regimen than showers. Voila!
