Skincare Odds & Ends


Skincare is something I don't really think about too hard. I find products that work for me, and rarely stray from that path. Why mess with a good thing right? As I was rummaging through my stash one day I realized that these seven products needed a talking about. I've mentioned quite a few before and have excluded a few other favorites, but a re-hashing is always good. Let's get into it.

My favorite ways to remove, exfoliate, and clean my face are with the Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm, The Body Shop's Vitamin C Facial Cleansing Polish, the dr. brandt PoreDermabrasion Exfoliator, and the NUXE Reve de Miel Face Cleansing and Makeup Removing Gel. I don't use these all in one go, but mixing and matching them provides little difference to my skin (a good sign that the products behave with my skin!). They all work super well together in any combination. They get my skin clean, remove my makeup, and get it ready for the next steps. I love that they're all different price ranges too so you'll be set picking up any one of them if you have similar normal to sensitive skin like me.

If I'm feeling crazy I'll through on a face mask before heading on to the final steps. I am still obsessed with the Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask. It's amazing at getting deep into more pores and cleaning out all the hard to reach gunk while being gentle enough on my weirdly sensitive cheeks. Plus it has this smell that always reminds me of my childhood. I have yet to pinpoint the exact memory, but it's pleasant regardless.

To wrap things up I either use the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask or the StriVectin Repair and Protect Moisturizer. The Origins offering is a thicker and hangs around on the skin longer, but packs some serious moisture and hydration. The StriVectin moisturizer is much better for everyday but still provides ample hydration. Thumbs up all around.

What products are in your skincare routine?
