Question of the Week: How much time do you spend on your skincare regimen each day?

Answer: My morning routine is practically nothing; 3 minutes tops. All the magic happens at night: cleansing, serum, eye cream, neck cream, hand cream…basically a lot of cream! So I’ll say it’s about 15 minutes a day.

Here’s what went on with The League this week…

Beautygeeks – If you habitually skip body lotion after your shower because you’re too rushed, this new Jergens Moisturizer for Wet Skin is a game-changer, even more-so than Olay Moisturerinse (discontinued anyway) and Nivea In-Shower Body Milk and Lotions (sorry, Nivea).

Beauty Junkies Unite – In 1983, I used to sneak my brother’s Grandma’s bottle of Vidal Sassoon shampoo in my bathtub and use it when I wasn’t supposed to. Now, that original cherry almond scent is coming back in updated Vidal Sassoon Shampoo & Conditioner formulas, and 7 year-old me couldn’t be more thrilled.

Clumps of Mascara – shows off more Shea Moisture Cosmetics awesomeness.

EauMG – Valentine’s Day is a week away! Treat yourself with these little lovely-scented luxuries.

Gouldylox Reviews – I always feel like sharing my thoughts with you when I read magazines, but I never do. That changed this week. Grab your People StyleWatch and let’s discuss.

Love for Lacquer – Looking for an affordable & moisturizing lipstick from the drugstore? How about these from the ELF Studio Line which are only $3!

My Newest Addiction – Have you seen the new Charlotte Tilbury Filmstars On The Go Palettes or Beach Sticks? Laura shows you Some Like It Hot and Moon Beach. GORGEOUS!

Nouveau Cheap – If you love the Disney Princesses and you love makeup brushes, get ready for cuteness overload.

Prime Beauty – asks if you really need a shave cream and what is a hair inhibiting gel? Find out the answer to these pressing questions!

Phyrra – Ever wondered who the best all around cruelty free drugstore brand is? Phyrra shares why she picks Nyx Cosmetics!

Vampy Varnish – The new Zoya Delight collection for spring 2015 truly is delightful!

we heart this – introduces a five ingredient product that will clear blemishes, smooth and tighten skin, diminish pores, exfoliate, tone, clarify and hydrate. Oh yeah, and it’s only $19.95! Check it out.

Guest Post of the Week, as chosen by Beautygeeks – I’m all about a specific sheet mask for therapeutic moisturizing right now, but my pal Tracy at BeautyReflections recently posted this great moisture-mask smackdown that reminds me that moisture masks in a tube are great options too.

    I spend 5-15 minutes, depending on if I use my Ole Henriksen’s Lemon Strip Flash Peel (that adds 10 minutes).
    Every so often I reboot my skin with a round of Proactiv. I pretty much do that in the morning and top with Murad’s sunscreen, then wash my face with Murad’s AHA/BHA scrub at night and round it out with Dr. Brandt’s DNA cream on my face, undereyes, and neck at night. Then I put whatever hand cream I have on my nightstand on right before I turn the lights out.

    So far, it appears that we really are low maintenance! I take about 15 minutes to get ready in the morning. Most of my skincare is done at night as well.. that’s the best time for it to really work!
