One of my goals for 2017 is to take better care of my skin and I decided to start sooner rather than later. I changed out my skin care routine completely by trying out new ones. I am yet to find products that I can use consistently and which gives consistent results. I am went with brands that I never used before, hoping for better results.
I did a lot of researching and reading, the items that I have chosen, boiled down to just a few products. It is this simple, I am not the type of person who is going to use a million things on my skin especially since it is extremely sensitive.
I purchased these items to try out few weeks ago and I am ready to share an update with you all. I purchased a cleanser, toner, day time moisturizer and night-time moisturizer.
Skin Care Routine
For the cleanser, I went for Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser. I have never used any beauty products from Neutrogena before. This facial cleanser is for normal to oily skin. I have combination skin so it is a great fit with my skin type. It states on the package that this cleanser is “a penetrating and thorough cleanser that improves your complexion.”
After my first time use, I immediately felt the difference in my skin; it gave it a pretty decent cleanse, leaving it feeling smooth and looking well refreshed. I also use it to remove my makeup and it does a pretty good job. It is very gentle on the skin, however be careful not to get it in your eyes.
This is the first time I am incorporating toner into my beauty routine. I decided to try Burt Bee’s rosewater toner. I really did not fully grasp the purpose of toner, until trying out one for myself. I use the rosewater toner after cleansing. I apply it to my face and neck using cotton pads. What it does, is that, it removes excess or lingering dirt or makeup from the skin, even after cleansing, leaving it extremely cleaned and refreshed. It also restores the normally ph balance on your skin which would have been disturbed due to washing with soap.
You know how critical it is to moisturize, so I incorporated not one but two moisturizers into my skin care routine; one for day time and one specifically for nights.
I have heard grave news about Neutrogena’s rapid wrinkle repair moisturizer. I have been using it quite a lot and I am seeing results already, it moisturizes well, leaves skin feeling smooth and looking glossy and it also helps to clear up the skin. Initially I was worried because it had a strong smell on my first try then every other time afterwards the scent disappeared.
Base on my understanding, the second moisturizer from Burt Bees can be used almost any time. I choose to use during days and before I head out. Burt Bees brightening even skin tone moisturizing cream is filled with daisy extract. Daisy helps to brightening the skin naturally by removing dark spots and pigmentation.
I use mostly in the mornings after cleansing and toning. It is not much greasy as the wrinkle repair night cream, so I comfortable with it throughout the days.
