I don’t know about you but it seems like my skin care always has to change with the seasons especially my facial care! As long as my face is clean and beautiful than I know everything else will just fall into place for the day. I have combination skin on the more side of oily and I live in a climate with a lot of humidity this time of year so finding a product that doesn’t make more oily or dry me out completely is VERY important to me! After tons of testing and I mean TONS these were my favorites…
Now this is the kind of stuff that is considered high end and a little more pricey then most people are looking for but if you are looking for results to clear up your acne fast for swimsuit season this is it! I have a baby and thank god I have a treadmill at home so after working out sometimes I don’t have time to wash my face because she needs me so I just started wiping my face with the Daily Acne Peel wipes after sweating and it seriously dried up my acne in 3 days and prevented more breakouts. The night renewel Gel was pretty awesome too because it helped me not have puffy eye bags the next morning and is a must for new moms who don’t get a ton of sleep anymore! The clay mask was like my weekly treat. I would use it once a week while taking a hot bubble bath and then wash it off in the tub. The combination of the steam from the bath and the mask really helped shrink my pores and made my face baby butt soft!
Daily Facial Cleanser & Oil Blotting Sheets
This facial cleanser worked so well I had to cut it back to using it once a day because it is pretty strong. It contains tea tree oil, aloe vera, and salicylic acid which is a powerhouse combination for controlling acne and healing deep down into the skin. It smells really good and the mint scent is not to overpowering unlike some other tea tree products I have used. The salicylic percentage is not listed on the bottle which is why I might have used it too much in the beginning but once I cut it back to once a day it really improved my skins texture and breakouts. The oil blotting sheets were AWESOME! I have no used a blotting sheet since high school and that’s because back then they would all leave a waxy substance on my face. These didn’t do that and boy did they work (see before & after pic below)! My face felt oil free for up to 5 hours and worked well to get rid of oil before I reapplied my foundation later in the day.
I think this was my favorite out of all the products! The hardest thing for me to find that works for my face is moisturizer. Most of the time it goes on too thick or just makes my face feel more greasy. I have suffered from some horrible cystic acne breakouts on my chin before from a variety of moisturizers and to this day this is the first one I have came across that doesn’t do that. This moisturizer had sea salt, rose hips, and jojoba oils in it as well as Vitamin E and C. That combination has been a powerhouse for my skin and can also be used on any skin type. It also works as a sunscreen so it can be used under your makeup as a base. The product looks thick and creamy but when applied it goes on weightlessly and does not leave my face feeling oily all day. BONUS: It smells so good…not like old grandma! #DeadSeaFacialMoisturizer
