My evening skincare routine!🌜
- BANILA CO - Clean It Zero 3-in-1 Cleansing Balm This is a cleansing balm that I use at night to double cleanse. This removes makeup, sunscreen, and anything else that built up on my face during the day. It removes all of my makeup effectively (even my waterproof mascara which never comes off) without stripping my face. To make it even better, you need very little product to cleanse your face! - CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin This is my second cleanser. It is effective in cleansing my face , yet gentle for my sensitive skin. I normally gently rub it on my face for 45 seconds to 1 minute, allowing it to cleanse properly without potentially stripping my skin. - The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution This product has gone viral, so I had try it. I was afraid of this product due to by sensitive skin. When I put it on for the first time, it stung. I washed it off and tried it again a couple days later. I was pleasantly surprised! It did not sting. However I left it on for only 3 minutes out of precaution. My skin was noticeably smoother and brighter after. If you have sensitive skin, like myself, I would be careful will this product. However, I would definitely recommend it. - BIODERMA - Sensibio H2O Soothing Micellar Cleansing Water I love this product! You can use it as a makeup remover before cleansing or you can use it as a toner. I personally use it as a toner, but it can effectively remove even toughest of eye makeup! I apply it with a cotton round. Once again, this product is gentle for sensitive skin and fragrance free. - The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I love this serum. I use it on my T-zone, nose, and any other areas that are prone to break out. This serum works well and I would definitely recommend it to anyone with combination or acne-prone or oily skin. - The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 use this product on the dry areas of my face such as my cheeks and chin. It does a great job of moisturizing my skin in the dry areas, but I wouldn’t recommend using it on oily areas of your face. - CeraVe - Eye Repair Cream This cream does a decent job of reducing my eye bags and dark circles. I have pale skin and insomnia, so I have pretty heavy bags on a regular basis. It definitely made a difference, but my eye bags are still noticeable. - CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin This moisturizer is great overall. It is fragrance free and inexpensive for the quantity. However, it is on the heavier side, which can be problematic for very oily skin.
