Skincare Routine

So, I've just recently figured out my favorite skincare routine. For a while I was using different cleansers but nothing that really stuck. I've used the L'Oreal Go 360 Clean Deep Facial Cleanser for Sensitive Skin for a couple of years now (while buying others also throughout that time). I kept using the L'Oreal one but I've never really felt like it did an amazing job cleaning my skin. I've recently found my favorite products and they have definitely been leaving my skin with a deep clean feel.

In the mornings I keep my cleansing routine quite simple. I like to use the Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser for normal to oily skin. I only just purchased this not too long ago but I feel like this gel like cleanser really does the trick. On the bottle it claims to leave the skin feeling clean, soft and smooth, without clogging pores. I use this in the mornings with the scrub that comes with the L'Oreal 360 Deep Clean.

At night I tend to spend just a bit more time on my skin. I got the Clarisonic Mia 2 for my birthday a while back and I've been loving it! I really don't know why I never thought of getting it sooner. It has two buttons on it. One to turn it on and the other to control the speed. The speed settings are high and low, I tend to use the low setting because my skin is sensitive. The Clarisonic Mia 2 is set to cleanse for 1 minute; It beeps after 20 seconds for your forehead, 20 seconds for your nose and chin, and 10 seconds for each cheek, then it turns off automatically after that minute is over. The Clarisonic Mia 2 also came with a Refreshing Gel Cleanser which is what I use at night. I'm almost done with it but when I am, I'll just use my Neutrogena cleanser with the Clarisonic. Once I'm done cleansing my face I apply the Proactiv Blackhead Dissolving Gel. It's kind of like a deep clean for your pores and when you've finished, the appearance of your pores has shrunk (It did for me). I tend to use this product sparingly, at most twice a week and it does such an amazing job. My skin is left feeling super clean and soft.

Once I dry my face I apply toner. I'm not one for toners really; I've never really been the one to just go out and get myself one. I was given the L'Oreal Hydrafresh toner and decided to give it a try. It certainly does what the bottle claims and that's to "refresh in a splash". I would like to finish the bottle but I think it'll try out different toners instead of purchasing this one for myself. Until then, I will continue to use it after washing my face in the morning and at night.

This routine has really worked for me and I'm going to stick to it for a while. It's what works best with my skin and I love the results at the end. Hope you are able to find this post helpful. Let me know what your skin care routine is.

Thanks for reading!
