Speaking of which, we asked Black to do just that, from revealing her cream under the eyes to the lip balm she keeps all over the place. Read on for CharmThe latest edition of Drop the Routine.
I use two from Prana SpaCeuticals – their cleansing oil and a foaming facial cleanser. I never liked cleansing oils because I have really oily skin, but the trick is to find the right oil that works for your skin, and this cleansing oil is really great. And then I use the foam wash to make sure I remove all the oil.
My Toner / Gasoline
I really like Beauty water by Sun & Park. I can honestly say I don’t know what it does but my face looks like a baby after I put it in there. [Laughs.] It’s worth it.
I used COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid, which helps control oil, while adding moisture. It is really great to help prevent blackheads and whiteheads, or eliminate them.
My eye cream
Most eye creams irritate the skin under my eyes, but a makeup artist suggested Embryolisse, which is a lotion for people with very sensitive skin, so I put them on. Concentrated Milk-Cream under my eyes. It’s the only thing that really works.
My face masks
When I need to exfoliate my skin I use Peach & Lily Super Reboot Resurfacing Mask. And then when I need to calm my skin Mar CÃ¶smetics Moisturizing Clay Acne Mask it’s really super. I try to use them once a week.
My retinol prescription
I am using the prescription Retin-A. People don’t talk enough about what they are using. They just say moisturizer, but I’m like, “You put prescription products on your face!” [Laughs.]
My face hazy
i use Eminence Organic Stone Crop Moisturizing Mist. I usually don’t wear makeup if I’m not in front of the camera, so I mist throughout the day. It is an excellent pick-me-up. We would mist all day in the writers’ room Bless this mess. I also use the bit Evian bottle.
I really like the Glossier Invisible Shield Sunscreen because it does not turn white, especially with darker skin. This one doesn’t have that white tint.
My lip balm
I like Glossier Universal Skin Ointment. I have one at my desk, in the car – literally everywhere you can reach out, there’s lip balm. It lasts quite well, and it’s very rich without being greasy.
My face at home
Usually I do a more intense facial on Sunday and I turn off in between Good Genes by Sunday Riley or Peach and lily glass skin, and they’re both excellent. I went on a real Peach & Lily kick during the pandemic and think I have one of everything. [Laughs.]
This is Honey Baby Naturals Face & Body Butter. I wouldn’t put it on my face because it’s very thick, but it’s best for an all day lotion. And you never need to reapply it.
