I thought I'd share my current skincare routine with you today. I'm running out of some of the items and there are some other products I think I'm going to substitute in.
Haha, as you can see I like to stick with an entire brand. I do love Clean & Clear, I've been using them for a while now and they always give me great results.
- Clean & Clear Blackhead Eraser Scrub- I use this scrub every day. This is the newest addition to my routine, it replaced my Clean & Clear Foaming Cleanser because I was starting to have breakouts and I wanted a face wash with Salicylic Acid acne medication. It's a cream formula that has little beads in it to gently exfoliate the skin. It doesn't leave my skin feeling too dry and it washes off without leaving a residue.
- Exfoliating Brush- Okay, so I have no idea what the official name of this is. I know its from Avon but when I looked it up online, I didn't see it. I'm going to let you in on a little secret, this is actually a brush for your feet *covers face* I know! My mom ordered it a while ago but never used it, kept it in it's box, I saw it and grabbed it. I would like a Clarisonic one day, but since I'm cheap, I got this. It has two settings and I use the "low" one[the "high" feels too harsh on my face]. I use this every other day and/or when I really want to deep clean my face. I haven't used any other facial brushes so I can't compare, but I really like this.
- Clean & Clear Deep Cleaning Astringent- I've never really gotten the point of astringents honestly. I use it because it helps fight pimples[salicylic acid] and helps with my oil. Maybe that's the reason lol? I don't use this every day, sometimes if I'm in a rush I don't put it on after I wash my face. I try to use it majority of the time though because I want to combat pimples in every way possible! I just pour it on a cotton pad and rub it all over my face. It's a good product.
- Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturizer- I first picked this up because I am not the type of person that can just wash my face and not put a moisturizer on afterward! I do not see how others do it. This also includes salicylic acid so it was a plus for me. It only takes about two pumps to cover my entire face and it doesn't leave it feeling dry[it actually states its for moisturizing dry skin]. The only con is that it can burn sometimes if you have a pimple or something that just burst on your face.
That, in a nutshell, is my routine. I don't use any serums or eye creams or anything like that. I personally don't think it's necessary for me at this time so that's why I haven't purchased any. I have extremely oily skin, these products work well for me when I use them all together. If you do not have oily skin, you may not want to use too many products with salicylic acid because it can be very drying to the skin.
Have you tried any of these products? If so, what were your results? Also I'm thinking of switching facial cleansers, which oil-free products do you recommend?
