Skincare Essentials

Hi everyone! Welcome back to my blog!

This week I'm sharing my skincare essentials with you. But before I get into that, here's some background information on my skin:

I have extremely oily skin which often leads to acne flare ups. With that, my skin is also extremely sensitive to harsh acne products. My skin will get dry and flaky very easily. I've finally found a system that works for me!

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes

Taking my makeup off is definitely a relief at the end of a long day. Doing it with these specific towelettes makes it 10x better. It is clinically proven to remove 99.3% of stubborn makeup, even waterproof mascara! After using this wipe my skin feels clean and refreshed.


B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Spray

After shaking well, I apply this product to a clean surface before a moisturizer or makeup. Ultimately, the product gives your skin a quick hit of vitamins and calms a multitude of sins. Urban Decay's B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Spray features the first patented, stabilized form of topical vitamin B6, which absorbs oil, minimizes pores and reduces redness. It can also be used anytime to refresh skin or at night before your treatment. 


CLEAN CLEAR ADVANTAGE Acne Spot Treatment

I might as well tell you what's great about it:
  • The powerful gel with breakthrough technology starts to dissolve surface oil on the skin.
  • Contains maximum strength 2% Salicylic acid.
  • Pimples are reduced in size, swelling and redness, and the formula won’t over-dry your skin.
The first day I used this product I instantly saw a change. I had a huge pimple on my forehead- by the end of the day it was reduced in size and redness. The swelling went down immensely! I felt so much more confident.


Clarisonic Mia 2 Garden Party Skin Cleansing System

I've had this product since the beginning of 9th grade. It definitely is a bit on the pricier side, but it's definitely worth it. For a girl with sensitive skin it uses the perfect amount of pressure to exfoliate and unclog pores.


Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets

I love keeping oil absorbing sheets in my backpack/purse depending on where I'm going. After the gym these are a great pick-me-up; plus they don't remove or smudge my makeup!


Oatmeal & Honey

For those of you who don't know I am obsessed with Pinterest. I am always finding new hacks- including beauty hacks. I found out that oatmeal and honey are two natural ingredients that can benefit my skin:

Oatmeal contains chemicals known as saponins that are characterized by their intense cleansing properties. Saponins are commonly added to shampoos and detergents for it’s emulsifying and foaming abilities that create a rich lather. Oatmeal is the ideal face mask, or even cleanser for every skin type, especially sensitive skin.

For a simple homemade recipe, mix whole oatmeal with warm water into a paste and add a teaspoon of honey. Rub the cleanser onto your skin in circular motions to cleanse face. The antibacterial action of honey will also help to relieve inflamed skin and alleviate dryness.

*I do this 1-2 times a week.


Jack Black Double Duty Face Moisturizer Spf 20

Yes, this may be a men's skincare brand, but quite frankly I don't care. It does just the trick! The lightweight moisturizer is an advanced facial treatment product with a built in sunscreen, SPF 20.  The emollient formula visibly improves skin's overall appearance and provides lasting hydration without oiliness or heaviness. Perfect for my oily/sensitive skin.


That concludes my skincare essentials. What are some of your skincare essentials? Comment below!
