Hello! I’ll have to admit, I’m not a big skincare person, but I’m trying to be! I like a simple and fast routine, and don’t really like a lot of fuss. Here are the products that never fail me!
So first off, I have been using a new moisturizer. This is the Cerave AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion w Sunscreen. I bought this to replace the Clinique Gel Moisturizer that I’ve used for years. Not only is this a lot cheaper, but it’s got SPF 30 and it’s at the drugstore. It’s really lightweight, not greasy, and doesn’t break me out. This is my go-to now!
Since I usually use powder foundation, I always prime my face with this Bare Minerals Prime Time Original Foundation Primer. This is a clear primer that has that silicone slippery feeling to it. I just use a tiny bit of this and it fills in my pores and creates a nice and smooth canvas for my powder foundation. Love this.
Next is a cream that I use at night. This is the Paula’s Choice Triple Action Dark Spot Eraser. This contains 7% AHA, glycolic acid, and hydroquinone, which are exfoliants that lighten up the skin. I use this because I have some dark sunspots/melasma underneath my eyes (I think from pregnancy) and I’m just wanting to lighten them up a bit. My whole entire face is covered in freckles, so I just use this underneath my eyes below where my dark circles are. It actually works really good and I notice when I use it consistently, it lightens them.
For eye cream, I use this Neutrogena Healthy Skin Eye Cream. This stuff really just hydrates the skin and takes some of the dullness away from underneath my eyes. I notice when I use this that my concealer and foundation just glide on and don’t look cakey.
Now, to wash my face, I use a Clarisonic, and I have for about 5 years now. I only use it when I wash my face in the morning, and I use it along with my Clarisonic Refreshing Gel Cleanser. My skin never breaks out, so I just stick with this in hopes that it won’t fail me, haha! I LOVE my Clarisonic. I use the sensitive brush head and it gently exfoliates my skin and my skin is so much brighter when I use it. The cleanser works really nicely with it and feels super clean, but never dry or tight.
Lastly, this Nivea lotion that I rave about. This is just a plain old, lightly scented body lotion that makes my skin shiny! I love how it makes my legs look. It is super hydrating and feels so good going on. I despise scented body lotion (I know, weird), but this scent doesn’t bother me. Maybe it’s unscented? Anyway, just try it if you need a new body lotion!
That’s it for the skincare products I’ve been loving!
