Skincare Must-Haves

I've been getting more e-mails than usual regarding my skincare routine so I thought I'd just walk you through the tried and true products that I really love & work for me.

First of all, I swear by my Clarisonic! I've been using it for over a year and it has changed my skin. I use THIS exact one. It really is a game changer if you stick with it & use it long term! I always use my Clarisonic with this Acne Facial Wash which is pretty light, but it has worked for my skin. I'm on my 3rd bottle in the past 6 mos. (I get the travel sized ones though.) My skin type is oily & acne prone so I am constantly battling something skin wise. 

Also, since I am acne prone, I have been loving 2 products: 1. Drying Lotion & 2. Glam Glow. First of all the Drying Lotion is what I call an acne zapper - I just apply it directly to blemishes to dry them up overnight. Also, I always keep a small container of the Glam Glow mask on hand for breakouts also. Both of these products are my go-to when it comes to acne. However, if I have cystic acne - which I get every now and then, I use THIS buffering lotion!

Now when it comes to moisturizer I've been super loyal to the Mac Comfort creme the past year which is a big deal because I have tried TONS of moisturizers. I also love this Vitamin C Serum - it just brings my skin back to life if I dry it out with too much product or weather. It soaks in overnight and my skin always feel so good in the morning, and very fresh. And finally, the Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye cream is a favorite of mine - I also like Shiseido's too. Both are pricy in my opinion but last SO long since you don't need much for your eyes.

And last but not least, my skin tends to dry out when I travel so I literally don't go anywhere w/o the Glam Glow hydrating mask - it's just a thick moisturizer you sleep in and holy moly, it works!

  4. I love Mario Badescu products. His products work so well with my sensitive skin. You should try his under-eye treatment too. It works wonders and is cheaper than the Bobbi Brown!

  14. Hi, when I click on the Acne facial wash, I get the Vitamin C serum. I'm not sure if it's my computer acting up or the links. I would love to know what Acne facial wash you use with your Clarisonic?
