I thought I would share a few of the products that I’ve been using to take of my skin these past few months. I’m sure from what you can see I don’t use a lot of products. Now for my skincare routine I do use a moisturizer and a micellar cleansing water that aren’t pictured. I didn’t show those two products because I’m still trying to find ones that I want to keep in my every day routine. So if you have a good moisturizer recommendation drop it in the comments! I have very dry skin especially when the colder months start to roll around my forehead will get flaky. A big reason I cut out a lot of other skin products was because I felt that they were drying out my skin even more.
These five products are great for keeping your routine simple. I find too many products (with too many ingredients) can irritate the skin. I started using the Indie Lee cleanser when I received a sample of it, and now I’m in love with it. I ditched my Neutrogena Ultra Gentle cleanser for this amazing rosehip cleanser. This cleanser only has six ingredients! It gently cleanses my skin, but doesn’t dry it out. It smells lovely and I feel like my skin has been reacting well to the product. One of the other products that I want to point out was actually another sample that I received in an Ipsy bag. It’s Tarte’s maracuja oil. I was pretty hesitant to slather oil on my face, but this oil is amazing. It’s a vegan oil packed with vitamin C that’s great for helping dryness and dull skin. I use the dropper, and put a little bit in my hands. Then I rub it into my hands, and gently massage it onto my face. Every morning my skin feels rejuvenated, and I really have noticed a difference in my skins dryness and texture.
The Mario Badescu facial spray I use multiple times a day. I use it after I moisturize, I use it as a setting spray for my make-up, I use it to refresh my face throughout the day, and I use it at night before I go to bed. I honestly love this stuff. I wish I have a smaller bottle because I can’t take this on a plane! This is the kind of product you want when it feels like your skin is starting to dry out. I recommend having some of this in your cabinet because I guarantee you will end up using it every single day.
The Bunny Moon face mask from Lush is my all time favorite thing that I have as a part of my skincare routine. Lush Cosmetics always tends to have some of the best products for my skin. The employees are always so kind, and they’re very educated on their products. They have four new jelly face masks too choose from, and because I have dry skin I went with the bunny moon. This stuff smells like honey and just glides right onto your face. Immediately after washing this off of my face I noticed a difference in my skin. However, the next morning was when I really noticed a change! My skin was the softest it’s ever been, and my skin felt refreshed. I didn’t even want to put anything on my skin in the morning because it already felt so good. I recommend picking out one of these new face masks if you get the chance. Just make sure to pick the one that’s right for your skin type.
Last but certainly not least is Curology. Before Curology I had never used any sort of Acne “medication”. I started my Curology subscription five months ago, and my skin feels amazing. I was dealing with really awful hormonal breakouts that I had never dealt with before. Curology sets you up with a dermatologist that sends you a curated medication for YOUR skin. You can contact them anytime about any changes in your skin, and it really has been a great experience for me. Curology may not work for everybody, but I think if you’ve tried other things that aren’t working you should give this a shot.
That’s my current skincare routine. What skin care products are you currently using?
