Toner for Dry Skin - Andalou Naturals Toner
The Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Floral Toner is a rosewater mist that stands out for its multipurpose usability. It’s marketed as a refreshing spray that helps revive skin to reveal flawless skin. This products targets are to provide the skin with moisture-binding humectants and restore pH balance. Because the mist is made of a concoction of hyaluronic acid and aloe vera, it’s a perfect spray to use throughout the cold winter months for a quick moisture boost. The consistency of this spray feels very similar to that of any other facial spray, and it dries fairly quickly once applied. I’ve had this product for about six months now, and would say that it’s a pretty average product. There’s nothing that particularly stands out to me about this product, but that’s not to say that it is a bad toner/mist. Because my skin leans more on the dry side, I do like using this spray to refresh my skin through the day. I don’t find that it dries my skin out, which is great! I notice that is the case usually with a lot of rosewater products that I’ve tried. I would recommend this product to others, only because it is super affordable. You can find it on Amazon or at Whole Foods for $9.99!

Versed’s Nix It Complexion Solution is my latest clean beauty holy grail!! This product is a non-drying acne treatment that is aimed to target acne in every stage. Nix It is an oil based acne treatment made with rosemary and tea tree, the perfect combination for a soothing experience. This solution targets so many common skin concerns: reduces redness, fights oil formation, prevents blemishes, and refines pores. It has a very thin oil-like consistency, so it does not feel too heavy or thick on the skin. I’ve had this product since this past September and I have to say that it is my new go-to product when it comes to addressing my acne problems. Because it is an oil-based formula, it’s perfect to leave on overnight. It leaves my skin super hydrated, while still fighting the blemishes on my skin. I love it, and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a new, clean skincare product to add to their regimen. Another added bonus about Nix It, is that it’s only 12.99 at Target. It’s at a very affordable price point so anyone can try it out!

Blackhead Treatment - Sunday Riley U.F.O.
Sunday Riley’s U.F.O. Ultra Clarifying Acne Treatment Face oil is a ‘dry oil’ that’s aimed to provide consumers with a clearer and brighter complexion. This oil has targets a lot of the major skin concerns: clears acne, removes blackhead causing buildup, and clears pores of congestion. Because this product aims to achieve all of these problems, I feel like I am needing to incorporate less and less into my daily routine. I can swipe this on my face after my moisturizer without worrying about applying so many products to target my acne. The consistency of this product is described as a ‘dry oil’ and it is exactly that. It’s a super lightweight oil, something that I was surprised about upon first application. Because of its light texture, I’m able to use this product on my face even during the day under my makeup as the perfect base. Something to keep in mind is that even though this is marketed as a lightweight oil, it still manages to stay on the skin for hours on end. I’ve had this oil for about two months now, and I have to say that I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the quality of this oil. I have fully incorrect this oil into my daytime and nighttime skin routines. It keeps my skin plump and hydrated while helping me keeping it clear and free of blemishes and blackheads (especially around my nose). The fact of whether or not I recommend this product, is up in the air. I will say, that it is a product that helps clear your skin of pesky blackheads and blemishes, but it is on the pricey side at $80.00. So it’s really a matter of personal preference. If you do end up purchasing this product, I know you will not be disappointed!!

Lip Scrub - Lush Mint Julips
With the temperatures dropping every day, my lips get slightly drier than usual. So of course, I had to go and get a fresh new pot of my favorite flavor of Lush’s lip scrub - Mint Julips. This lip scrub functions to soften the lips, eliminating dead skin, and protecting the lips with a comfortable layer of jojoba oil. It’s formulated with tiny castor sugar crystals so it isn’t very harsh on the lips and could even be used everyday if necessary. Because it is made with finer particles, it feels very soft to the touch. I first decided to try this lip scrub a couple of years ago because my lips were in very bad condition because of the cold weather. No matter which lip treatments I would use, I still had dry and dead skin remaining on my lips. Once I got it, I couldn’t stop. I love it! I would recommend to anybody, not just those with dry lips. It’s a nourishing lip scrub that doesn’t strip the skin of moisture. An added bonus (in my opinion) is that this particular flavor has a minty flavor that feels so cooling on the lips. Also, this vegan formula is made with all natural ingredients - it’s even edible! Overall, I think this product is definitely worth it. You can get it for $10.95 at Lush, a price point that is not too high for what the product is.

Oil control skincare product - Origins Zero Oil
Origins has always been one my go to brands for simple and effective skincare products, which is how I discovered their Zero Oil Deep Pore Cleanser With Saw Palmetto & Mint. This product describes itself as a gentle foaming cleanser that eliminates excess oil and reduces shine. It contains three key ingredients which target different concerns - Saw Palmetto (skin-clearing), Mint (cooking), Salicylic Acid (pore-minimizing). The texture of this product is very similar to any typical gel cleanser. It’s got a liquid consistency which foams up easily when massaged on the face with water. I decided to try this product back in June, because my skin tends to get more oily in the hot summer months. I was wanting to try something that would get rid of excess oil, without taking the moisture away from my skin. My overall experience with this product is that I quite enjoy it. However, I have somewhat of a love-hate relationship with it. I love it because it’s just such an easy cleanser that cleans my skin nicely. I hate it because it’s at a $24 dollar price point, which gets to be a lot when you use this product everyday and need to repurchase it often. I would recommend this product if you think you can afford to spend that much money on a daily cleanser, because it’s not life changing for how much it costs.
