If you've been a reader of my blog for the last couple months you know I've been having troubles with my skin. I wanted to give you an update on how things are going, what I have been using lately and what is on my soon to purchase list.
So my skin has been going through an emotional crisis these last couple weeks. I've had everything from dry patches around my nose and jaw, to a super oily t-zone. I am mainly struggling with my dry patches on my jaw and cheek. The right side of my face is way more sensitive and acne prone compared to my left. So what have I done to fix it? Well unfortunately I have yet to find something that works for both sides of my face.
On my list of products to try:
- Glam Glow Thirstymud Hydrating Mask
- Purity Face Wash
- John Masters 100% Agran Oil
- Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Day Crème SPF 15
I am currently using the First Aid Beauty to go kit from Sephora. This I love more for my night time routine. When playing around with my Halloween makeup I can say that the cleanser is BOMB! It got off all my makeup with no problem. For the cleansing pads that act as a toner I really haven't noticed anything special. I'm not a big toner fan but I have had good experiences with some. Got the cream I'm sold. The cream is heavy enough to give my face moisture but not make it feel greasy. I really would rather a gel with SPF during the day though.
For my morning routine I use the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser for all skin types. This face wash is good for what it does for me. It's not stripping my face in the morning but it's not adding a ton to my face. After my face feel clean and fresh. I would definitely not use this at night, as it just doesn't do well getting makeup off my face. I would recommend this to any teenager or adult who just needs a nice face wash.
I picked up a sample of the Glam Glow Supermud Clearing Treatment from Sephora and boy when I say the hype is real the hype is SO REAL. The sample I got lasted me 2 uses which is good for a sample but I'm itching to buy the whole thing. With a $69 price tag I'm on the search to see if there is anything that might come close to it before I spill the purse. The perks of this is you don't always have to put a full mask on. I used some left over as spot treatments and it worked well also. I would say since it is a clearing mask it does bring some blemishes to the surface, but overall I would definitely recommend this mask to everyone.
I am still using my First Aid Beauty Purifying Mask with Red Clay and doing this once to twice a week. If you want to see a full review on this check out my post here.
