Hello fellow readers! Today’s post is all about my skincare routine that I do every day morning and evening.
These products I’ve been using since around mid-July and have been loving them all and truly using them every day.
Every morning and evening I wash my face and in the mornings I usually shower and I use an Avene face wash to use. But, during the evening I use the Bioré: Baking Soda Acne Cleansing Foam and that has really made a difference! I got this at a Target in Boston so I am not fully sure if you can get it at Watsons or Guardians in Singapore. I do know that it’s a nice affordable drugstore cleansing foam and it is one of the products that shockingly made a difference to my face. Before I started to use this product, I found that my face was just filled with pimples and I would just continuously get new ones all the time, but after I started using this cleansing foam, I found that I don’t get fiery red pimples every week and that my face has started to clear up a lot more and I can really see a difference.
The next two products are both Neutrogena products but, I use one every morning and one every night. The first product I use is the Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture with Sunscreen: Broad Spectrum SPF 15. I use this every morning after washing my face so that instead of using a moisturizer and sunscreen, I have both in one bottle. I’m also lazy, and the fact that this is both moisturizer and sunscreen in one, I find that it really helps during the school day and does not at all break my face out and it does not make my face oily at all by the time I come home.
During the evenings, I use the Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture: Combination Skin as it isn’t too heavy on the skin at night and I don’t need to use sunscreen at night so I use this product. It is a little oily by the morning but it hasn’t at all broke me out and doesn’t leave my face feel awkward by the next day.
As well as in the evenings, I like to use eye cream along with my moisturizer. I find that my eyelids can get really dry so I use the Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado and it has really helped keep moisture on my eyelids and also treats the under eyes a lot. I don’t have as many dry patches on my eyelids and I don’t have to worry about dry skin coming off during the day.
I don’t usually wear mascara every day but I use it often enough throughout the week that I decided to include this product in. The Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover is one of the most used skincare/makeup products I use. I love to use a cotton pad and just swipe this product over my eyes and I feel that in seconds, all the mascara is off. You do need to shake it beforehand but that is very simple and easy to do. Something I found about this product is that even though it says it is oil-free and that it doesn’t leave an oily residue, I found that whenever I use this product I touch my eyelids and under my eyes and it is extremely oily that I have to wash my whole face in order to get all the oil off. Even if it says it doesn’t leave an oily residue, that has not been true at all so far and I feel that if you want to buy this product, you really have to make sure that it doesn’t leave oil on your lids.
This is probably half of what I actually use but the majority of the skincare products I use are really a once a week thing and not an everyday thing.
After one month of using these products, my mom and dad told me that they thought my face looked so much clearer from before. When I heard that I was really surprised, mainly because I have always thought of my acne as unable to truly be clear, but when they told me it looked much better, I was smiling so hard. Of course, I still have acne, but these days I found myself consistently using these products and not panicking about trying to conceal a new fresh pimple that has appeared on my face.
I just want you to know I have not used any type of medicine of sorts to clear my acne up as I really don’t believe that is the healthiest way. But, something I did do is take my vitamins daily, that was really the only thing I took.
Sorry for the long rants about each product but I hope you like some of these products and would possibly try them out! If you have, tell me what you guys thought about it when you used it down in the comments!
Thank you guys so much for reading and have a great weekend!
