Hello my pretty berries,
I thought I would start by talking to you a little bit about my skin type. The journey with my skincare seems to be a never-ending discovery of good and bad finds. Since I was a child, I’ve had very sensitive skin and I cannot use just any kind of products that had any harsh ingredients or scents in it. In fact, my skin was so bad I had to get prescriptions from my dermatologist that went on until I got older.
Fast-forward to today; I have learned more about my own skin and what it likes and what it hates. I don’t go to a dermatologist anymore but I do still have to take great care of my skin; especially my face.
My face is still sensitive and dry which usually means you can get premature wrinkles a lot earlier than a person that has oily/combination skin types. Isn’t that scary?! So I really focus on moisturizing and making sure that my face is always plump and I never miss putting on an eye cream (we do not want them wrinkles too early!!)
Below are the products that I am recently using and I’ve also given you different options that I usually alternate depending on how I’m feeling on that day.
If you have the same skin type as me, let me know if there are other products out there that I should try out because I like trying out new things and maybe review them for all of you!! I’m on the look out for anything organic or natural.
Morning Skincare Routine:
Cetaphil face wash
This is a very gentle cleanser that I have used for many many years and it’s just great for mornings when I just woke up in the morning and just need to kind of refresh my skin.
Tea tree cool & creamy wash
If my skin is breaking out or about to have break outs then I usually use this cleanser in the morning. It’s infused with tea tree oil, which helps with pimples and acne scarring. The only downside is the smell, which is mainly tea tree oil, but I got used to it and it actually doesn’t bother me as much now.
Mario Badescu facial spray
I usually spray this all over my face after I wash my face in the morning. I also like this for times when my skin feels a bit dehydrated and I just do a couple spritz of this on my face and I feel so refreshed.
Kiehl’s spot corrector serum
This is a holy grail for me and I cannot live without this product! I’ve purchased this a couple times and they do last for a very long time since you only need a pea size for your entire face.
Cetaphil face lotion
Another holy grail product for me. I have used this lotion for many many years (just like my Cetaphil gentle cleanser) and you can never go wrong with this lotion. It never breaks me out and it keeps my skin super moisturized. I also use this on my body since I love it so much.
Physician’s formula eye cream
I gotta say this product has all the hype for the make-up products but their skincare is okay. It’s not that bad but I feel like there is nothing amazing happening to my skin when I use this but for now it works great for my morning routine since it is quite thin in consistency and it absorbs super quickly. I am on the hunt for a really good moisturizing day cream so holla at me if you have any eye cream products I should try.
Kiehl’s lip balm #1
Of course I can’t forget the lip balm, which I am kind of addicted to. It’s something that I switch up a lot just because I lose them in my purse or some magical lip balm fairy takes it.
That’s all of it! I try to keep my skincare routine quick and easy in the morning because I am not a morning person at all. Also, I have been really good at finishing up my products first before I go and buy new ones so that way I don’t overwhelm my skin with too much products.
I will be posting up my Evening Skincare routine hopefully before the end of the week.
