As promised, I’m sharing my skin care routine today on the blog. My skin is in the best shape that it’s been in a long time and it’s all because of these products right here. A bit about my skin- I have oily, acne-prone skin that is on the sensitive side. Because of this I have to be really careful of the ingredients I use. They can’t be harsh but at the same time they have to be powerful enough to keep the acne in check. I’ve FINALLY figured out the right formula, here it goes! I use everything twice a day (morning + night) except the Neutrogena makeup remover, which I use only at night and the Olay sunscreen, which I use during the day.
This gets ALL my makeup off at the end of the day and I love that it’s natural for my sensitive skin. It has a slight “medicine-y” smell but it becomes subtle real quick. I barely notice it. Either way it’s soooo worth it bc this stuff it awesome.
2. Acne Free Cleanser, $5
I love this cleanser. The micro-scrubbers give a nice exfoliating feel without being too harsh. Has 2.5% benzoyl peroxide which has really helped my acne diminish.
3. Acne Free lotion, $15 (comes as a 3-part kit)
This stuff is nice and light. Sinks right into my skin. I wait until my face is completely dry before applying it. Has 3.7% benzoyl peroxide.
4. Olay ProX sunscreen, $28
Super lightweight. I used to use Clinique’s City Block but this is much better in terms of consistency.
This face oil reduces inflammation and has been instrumental with clearing up my acne (used in conjunction with my Acne Free products). I love this product. I use it right after the Acne Free lotion and it adds a nice touch of moisture (as the Acne Free lotion can be drying). This face oil also smells amazing!! I met Sonya Dakar last year at her NYC launch event and she is wonderful and extremely talented. We chatted for a bit and I love her energy. I had a facial that day with this oil and fell in love. This was a great gift to go home with. Been using it ever since!
6. Clean & Clear Persa-gel 10, $7
This is a great spot treatment for those stubborn pimples that just pop up out of nowhere. At night just dap a small amount onto your finger and pat it onto that sucker! Dries it up overnight and the next day it’s in a better state. The day after that, it’s usually a goner.
Hope this helped! What are some of your fav skin care products? Also, let me know if you have any questions about any of these products!
