How-To: Heal and Protect Skin After Picking! ❤️

avatar
Skincyclopedia
Skin picking generally affects most of us. From popping one pimple, scratching an eczema patch too hard, or dermatillomania, many of us have experienced the dread of making a pimple worse than it was before. These are some of my favorite products, tips and tricks for healing skin and keeping it safe during this gentle state. After the deed is done, it’s important to avoid actives and wash with a very gentle cleanser. My preferred is Glossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser
due to the minimal and skin healing ingredients list, lack of fragrance and no harsh stripping feeling. I wash for 60 seconds and rise with cool water, patting dry very gently with a microfiber towel. Next, I ice my skin for around four minutes to bring down the swelling and inflammation (similar to icing a burn or a sprained ankle). I constantly move the ice cube as facial skin is delicate, but concentrate it in areas that I picked or that experience redness and inflammation or pain.
Bonus tip: you don’t have to just use water. Freeze green tea and aloe cubes for the added bonus of healing and inflammation fighting ingredients.
After icing, I use a gentle hydrating toner. The key is to introduce humectants (hydrated skin is happy skin) and other inflammation fighting ingredients like green tea and COQ10 (an antioxidant) to the skin to help the healing process start immediately. I then layer on my favorite moisturizer or oil— use something you trust with no essential oils, drying ingredients, actives or fragrance. My fav is pure jojoba oil, it’s super gentle, pure, and antimicrobial, with no additives. It leaves my skin healthy and supple, as it has high amounts of vitamin A and E. It locks in the hydration I’ve added with the toner, and acts as a gentle occlusive. Furthermore it doesn’t overwhelm my picked skin with additives that burn and sting. Lastly, I layer on a variety of thicker products in areas that need it to heal my skin depending on the damage. If the pimple is still active, I use a peach slices - Acne Spot Dots
to keep it clean from further bacteria and to suck any remaining gunk out. If I have scabs or scratches, I use either skinfix - Eczema+ Dermatitis Face Balm
or TOPICALS - Like Butter Hydrating Mask
which both employ collodial oatmeal along with other barrier repair ingredients to heal, hydrate, and further protect skin.

Today’s Ulta haul!!!!✨🥳
Hi all! Today I ventured off to Ulta in search of a new moisturizer! If you saw my last post, then you know that I’m currently searching for a new one, as my most recent product just didn’t do it for me :( I was desperate for something super hydrating, so I ended up with the Murad - Nutrient-Charged Water Gel! I have heard nothing but amazing reviews about this, and considering every Murad product i’ve ever used has yet to fail me, I thought i’d give it a try As for first impressions, this gal was PRICEY... not even gonna lie... but I was in the market for a new product willing to spend a little more than usual so I thought why not? It’s ok to treat yo self here and there 😉 But this cream is so THICK! It only took about a fingertip worth of product to completely coat my entire face comfortably, which is definitely what I want in a product! My skin gets so dry during this time of the year so lathering is key! It sunk into my skin effortlessly and i SWEAR my skin feels baby soft after one use! The only thing I’m a little weary of is that it has the slightest fragrance, however, my skin has never been extremely sensitive to that kind of stuff, unless it was like overly artificial. But this is a light, flowery scent that definitely smells natural and I can’t wait to keep using it! I also received a free Murad gift Murad - Free Intense Recovery Cream Deluxe Sample With Brand Purchase with the purchase and i’m excited to see what it does! Tbh not even sure of its actual use but I’ll try it out as an eye cream and see if it does anything 😂 My lack of sleep lately has definitely shown so i’ll try anything to get rid of my eye bags! While I browsed, I also came across the highly acclaimed COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence, which I constantly see on Cherie, as well as any K-Beauty skincare forums! I bought it to see for myself what the rave was all about! I finally feel comfortable in my new routine so I thought it would be a perfect time to add a new step! I’ve used essences in the past and it always made my face feel soft and supple! I’ve heard that this is more of a preventative product for anti aging, so I probably won’t see much of a physical difference anytime soon, but I’ll try anything as long as it’s safe for my skin! I’ve learned so much while being on this app and I’m excited to experiment with new products! I never thought i’d be putting snail mucin on my face if you would have told me a year ago, but here I am!😁🐌 Lastly, I also picked up some peach slices - Acne Spot Dots. These have always been lifesavers for me when I have to wear a mask for a long period of time, and since my classes are going to resume again soon, that means the mask stays on for several hours at a time 🥲 Thankfully I have no active breakouts atm, but it’s always nice to have a stack of these bad boys whenever I need them!

Influenster Voxbox
I received this Fall Vibes VoxBox complimentary from @influenster awhile back! [Review] ☁️ Peach Slices Acne Spot Dots: If you know me you know I LOVE pimple patches! I find them to be so easy & so convenient. If I’m going to work with the intention of keeping my mask on at all times of course, time to time I will put one or two on to keep any irritated spots from rubbing against my mask throughout the day! I do this especially if I’m doing my clinical rotations in the hospital, wearing the n95 mask as well as another mask on top, it’s pressed tight to my face which can cause a lot of irritation to my sensitive skin! These patches stick to my face pretty well which is great! 10/10 for me! ☁️ Chapstick: Total Hydration (Pretty in Pink): To be honest I am not into tinted lip balms! I prefer plain lip balms only because I prefer to wear either a very pigmented lipgloss or a lipstick over it. However, on days I’m running out the door quick and want to give my face that little pop of color, this chapstick comes in handy! The shade it not too deep which I like so it will give you a nice subtle color! ☁️ Bliss Clear Genius: Clarifying Toner and Serum: I have not had the chance to use this just yet. I am not sure how bliss really works for my skin anymore! I used them often in high school/early years of college but now that my skin has changed I am not sure how I feel about them! This is a brand great for teenage skin though in my opinion! I would love to know your thoughts on Bliss^ Have you tried their clarifying toner and serum? What are your thoughts? bliss - Clear Genius Clarifying Toner + Serum ChapStick - Total Hydration Complete Care SPF 15 + Color peach slices - Acne Spot Dots

“NO FAIL” RETINOL ROUTINE - PM
I shared earlier this week my “no fail” AM skincare routine the products seen in that post I’ve used time and time again. They’ve never let me down and along with the ones listed here, are repurchases that keep my skin happy and healthy! Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Cleanser I like to use this cleanser when my face needs a little extra pampering. Milk Cleanser is super soft and gentle and leaves my face feeling very nourished. INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner same as used in the AM. I'm from - Rice Toner I honestly cannot get enough of hydrating products, especially when I am using my retinal. I have probably five open at this time and will use them all or a few at a time. This Rice Toner is so soft and smooth. If you’re into essences or toners this is a must try! I splash a few drops into my hand and then pat it onto my face leaving it wet until I add.... THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Serum I lock the Rice Toner in with HA. I am indoors most of the time, a bit of a recluse, but my skin still get very dry so I lock in the hydration first and end with the moisturizer! Medik8 - Crystal Retinal this is a bit expensive but well worth it to me because within weeks of use I saw significant changes. I’ve been asked my so many what I use for skincare as I have hardly any lines and I used to worship the sun with no sunscreen (⚠️) But I’ve been lucky and take very good care of my skin now. You only need a pea size amount of retinal for your face and add it to DRY skin. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask last up is my new favorite (on my second bottle), the YTTP Dream Mask. You only need a small amount with this and I go through about two a year as I use it every night. It’s gentle enough to use nightly but if you’re using other treatments you may want to alternate nights (if you have sensitive skin as it has vitamin c). You can put a light layer of moisturizer on before applying this but for me, this is plenty. The Crystal Retinal I use is non-drying so I am good with just the mask. But if your retinol tends to dry your face, I’d recommend adding a light layer of moisturizer before the dream mask. ⭐️ That’s it! You could eliminate the 2 toners (Co-Q10 & Rice Toner) and simplify it down to 4 steps. I’ll be sharing my PM exfoliating routine soon! One of my favorites!!! I never thought I’d love exfoliating so much 😂 Much ❤️ my @cherie family! 🍒 #cheriecreator

MY MOST USED “NO FAIL” AM ROUTINE
The products you see have been products I’ve been using time and again for two years, around the time I got serious about my skincare life. These steps I never skip although I have added others or tried different brands. I will say again that I have used a more expensive version of Hyaluronic Acid and while it truly felt soft and comforting to my face, I don’t feel this is where my high dollars need to be spent. INDIE LEE - Brightening Cleanser best cleanser around! You can even leave it on longer and use it as a mask! This helps target dull, uneven textures, dark spots and pores. It’s a gel like texture. I am all about products that brighten my skin. INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner next up is to tone and what better with one that will hydrate, soothe and protect your skin with the antioxidant coenzyme Q10 and Hyaluronic Acic! Plump that face up! I like to splash just a few drops of water on my face first then come in with Co-10. All we can do to help seal that hydration 💦 THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Serum Then comes HA to really lock in that hydration. So may find it hard as people claim it can be “sticky” or “tacky” but I go right it after spraying my Co-Q10 and do a quick rub and then immediately tap it in. Then let it completely dry. If you don’t, you can have your following products pill, and believe me, that’s not fun! I believe everyone should have HA in their routine. There are so many variations out there at many different cost points but if you do your research and are comfortable using what works for you, go for it. Mine costs me $6.80 a month. I use it both am & pm. FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry depicted in the picture as the cute little 🍒 is VCB. I am currently out and my order is taking much longer than I’d like. But I have probably used almost 10 different brands of vitamin C (in comments) and I’ll still be goin back to Farmacy. I love the light scent and I had seen results pretty quickly, never any side effects. TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream I have a handful of creams I do adore and I could really probably spend less than dear ole Tatcha, but oh I do so love this cream. It just makes my face so happy. It’s a bit richer but my mother who has oily skin loves it! If I am hanging inside - tbh that’s 90% of my life - I do a light amount and then follow up about 10 mins later with sunscreen. Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 I do wear sunscreen indoors although I’m never near direct light. Life of a migrainer! 🤯but I figure one can’t aver be too careful. Plus I have ones open unfinished from the summer. But it is my stance that, yes, you should weat sunscreen indoors. It’s your best line of defense! Unseen Sunscreen makes me feel as if I have nothing on! My most used, never fail AM routine! ❤️ @cheriefam 🍒

mini reviews
I have some mini reviews ready today!⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ The first is the GOOD MOLECULES - Caffeine Energizing Hydrogel Eye Patches They tend to send me their new launches, and I’ll admit I was waiting by the door for these. They don’t slide around on my face, aren’t sticky, and the essence sinks in pretty fast. My undereyes look plump when I use these, like I’ve gotten the most sleep imaginable. Would totally recommend these, as they only run about $18 for 30 pairs.⁣ ⁣ The next three mini reviews are some products from skinfix that I have been using — TLDR; they’re all great for dry skin. The Lipid Boost Jelly is one of the best hydration serums I’ve ever used, and the dermatitis face balm is incredible on my dry patches and flare ups. Last but not least, the 911 ointment is an all-purpose salve that I use on everything, from dry hands to itchy legs, random bumps on my chest or arms or cracked feet!⁣ ⁣ These were all gifted by the brands with no strings attached!

SkinFix Eczema+ Dermatitis Face Balm
My skin type is typically oily with the occasional breakout and dry spot, but lately with the Texas weather going back and forth between 80 and 40, my skin has been freaking out and been super dry! I’m talking flaky spots, peeling, and painful to the touch. The purpose of this product is a concentrated balm that treats eczema, dryness, and dermatitis with quick relief. It is even safe to use around eyes, on kids, and works well under makeup. The balm feels really heavy and hard to get out of the tube since it’s so thick, but as soon as you touch it, it starts to melt right into the the skin and is so lightweight, but packs a hydration punch! I got this product in my December 2019 BoxyCharm Premium box. It is the full size and it’s this tiny!! It cost $28 for this tiny, sample-size looking tube!! Looks can be deceiving though, you literally need the tiniest of dots since this balm is uber concentrated. My under eyes have been the flakiest and this immediately prodvided relief I had never felt before! I also get a strange red, intensely itchy feeling on my neck and chest sometimes, especially in the winter (not sure what it’s cause by, I’ve been getting to for years 😓) and the First Aid Beauty was the only product that provided a feeling of relief, but it would only last for a few minutes and then come back. Using this, the feeling goes and stays away!! I am blown away by this product! My skin can also get dry sometimes when I’m using my acne medication (EpiDuo Forte, but haven’t used it in months 😅 I need to start using it again) and it was be so dry that nothing could help it, I can’t wait to try it then because I know this will help. I have never had a product actually help with my skin because when it gets dry, it’s torturous. You’d expect this to be super heavy right?? Nope!! It sinks right into the skin and just nourishes and melts right into the skin. I have fallen in love with this product because it actually provides release from itchiness and dryness that I haven’t experienced before. I would recommend this if you have very dry skin or eczema because this product actually delivers its claims! I will for sure be purchasing this again when I run out, this is definitely worth the price (even though it literally looks like a sample size 😝) and it takes minimal effort/time to rub it in since it literally takes the tiniest amount of product to provide relief. skinfix - Eczema+ Dermatitis Face Balm Price: $28 for 0.48 oz/13.5 mL Rating: 5/5

Like butter my topicals
Like butter my topicals mask, such a hydrating mask that helps the skin with its moisture barrier, it also has some of my favourite ingredients like green tea, and centella asiatica. I wouldn’t recommend as a moisturizer during the day bc it will peel but it’s a great mask !!

Woman-Owned Small Businesses
I made a post a while back on conscious consuming and on how I’ve recently been more intentional in the businesses I support. That post had a more eco-conscious angle, but I want this post to focus on some fabulous companies founded and independently owned by women. See below for the deets on the woman-owned skin and hair care brands I currently have in my stash (* represent companies founded and owned by women of color): 🌻 Maelove* - founded and run by Jackie Kim. She utilizes AI and a team of MIT researchers to create her affordable but effective skincare line. I’m loving their MAELOVE - Night Renewer and can’t wait to get my hands on their MAELOVE - The Hydrator B5 Gel for both hydration and antioxidant protection. 🌻 Ethique - founded and run by Brianne West. This New Zealand-based bar company covers all your hygiene and cleansing needs with absolutely no waste and is a certified B Corp. I’m currently using the ethique - Eco-Friendly Heali Kiwi Shampoo Bar For Touchy Scalps bar and it’s eliminated all my flakes and itchiness! 🌻 Bounce Curl* - founded and run by Merian Missmo. She formulates every product herself and uses Middle Eastern Nigella Sativa oil as her secret ingredient. I recently bit the bullet and bought her famous Bounce Curl - Light Hold Creme Gel and will be writing a review on it soon. 🌻 Kinship - founded and run by Alison Haljun and Christin Powell. These two bring experience from Juice Beauty and Benefit to this accessible and eco-conscious skincare line. I’ve only used their KINSHIP - Self Reflect Probiotic Moisturzing Sunscreen Zinc Oxide SPF 32 , but it is a key product in my morning routine. It soothes my irritable skin and gives it a gorgeous glow, while protecting it with a non-nano Zinc UV filter. 🌻 Rizos Curls* - founded and run by Julissa Prado. So I haven’t tried any of their hair products as they look a little heavy for my hair type, but I really wanted to support a Latina brand so bought this bomb Jefa pin and their comb 😍 🌻 MamaP* - founded and run by Suzan Hernandez. Picked up this bamboo toothbrush at a CO-OP in Maine. 2% of proceeds from the different brush styles go to a different organization, from Save the Bees to LGBTQ+ advocacy groups. My green and black brush raised funds for mental health support. 🌻 Radius - although Radius was founded by men, it’s now owned and operated by the co-founder’s daughter, Saskia Foley. Radius makes ADA-Approved and BPA-free dental products that are all low to zero waste. Best thing is their RADIUS - Usda Organic Floss is available at my local Wegmans for the same price as mainstream competitors! On my wishlist: My Topicals* - founded and run by Olamide and Claudia. Their mission is to remove the stigma associated with chronic skin conditions like eczema and they donate a portion of profits to mental health organizations. Can’t wait to try TOPICALS - Like Butter Hydrating Mask

Soothing and brightening morning routine
I like to mix up my routine depending on what my skin is needing. This is what I call my soothing and brightening routine as I have a few brightening and deeply hydrating products in this routine. I like to keep my morning routine gentle and hydrating and I use most of my actives in my evening routines (vitamin C is the exception to the rule)! Glossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser This is my go to gentle and hydrating morning cleanser Pyunkang Yul - Essence Toner This is a very popular Korean essence founded out of a Medicinal clinic and focus on a minimal ingredient list. COSRX - Full Fit Propolis Light Ampoule I love this light and soothing serum, my skin responses very well to bee products The Ordinary - Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F This is a very effective vitamin c derivative serums. It has brightened my skin and there are none of the stinging side effect of full vitamin c. VERSED - ZERO-G Smoothing Eye Cream This is a gel/cream that is light with mild colour corrective properties Aveeno - Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 My go to moisturizer with spf for days I am mostly inside. I use a very liberal amount but I am never greasy. On days I have time (usually Saturday 😃) I like to double mask with: VERSED - PHOTOS, PLEASE BRIGHTENING TIGHTENING MASK This is a Kaolin clay and turmeric mask that I use on my forehead, nose and chin. It never dries me out and the antioxidant properties are great. And VERSED - LOOK ALIVE Hydrating Plumping Mask This gel mask is so hydrating on my cheeks!

Hydrating and antioxidant morning routine
I am an avid skincare lover and I love trying out new products. I have dry and acne prone skin which means it has been lots of trial and error to find what works for my seemingly contradictory skin. This trial has led to my interest in skincare so I have developed several routines that work for me depending on the season, how my skin feels and my mood. This is one of my morning routines with products I have used extensively. I call this my hydrating and antioxidant routine and i use this routine year round. Glossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser This is my favourite morning cleanser as it doesn’t strip my skin. FRUDIA - Pomegranate Nutri-Moisturizing Toner this is a great toner/essence hybrid that is deeply moisturizing and it preps my skin for my next steps. The Ordinary - Argireline Solution 10% i have used several bottles and it is a light serum that helps reduce dynamic lines. THE inkey LIST - Q10 Antioxidant Serum this is a light cream antioxidant that makes my face feel so soft. VERSED - ZERO-G Smoothing Eye Cream I enjoy this light cream as it hydrated my eye area it has a tint and shimmer to lighten the appearance of the area. Aveeno - Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 this has been my go to moisturizer/spf for days I am staying inside. Or On days that I do go out I wear a separate moisturizer and spf such as THE inkey LIST - Turmeric Brightening Moisturizer this is an antioxidant, brightening moisture though it can be thick PAULA'S CHOICE - Youth-Extending Daily Hydrating Fluid I love this sun screen as it is super light and spreadable

So I should start by saying I’ve been meaning to see a dermatologist for like 2 years because my situation has just gotten worse and worse. But I’m looking for some RELIEF... I have pretty red, sensitive, textured, dry skin. I stopped using a face scrub about a year ago when a esthetician friend turned me onto skin script products. They helped me for about 9+ months! My redness and texture were minimized and breakouts were never a huge concern. But I’ve moved to a different climate since and I can’t get my face to settle down much. I’ve used SkinScript cleanser, anti aging serum, toner, and lotion for a while and my skin seems to be immune to it now (this happens all the time, something will work great for a few months or so then I restock because I love it and BOOM my skin says “nope I’m over it” so I’m at a loss). I’ve recently been using this app to try new things and I’ve added a couple Dr. Jart products that feel amazing, I just need help as to what to add next! I have pretty textured skin, I don’t get much acne except for the occasional on my forehead and the white heads all over my cheeks. I want some hydration for the night time so I don’t wake up with bone dry skin, and something soothing for inflammation I get. I’m slightly positive I have rosacea But I obviously haven’t had a DR confirm. Thanks for reading. Pics are of what I’ve been using and liking.

SKIN SCRIPT-Acai Berry Moisturizer
Say NO to these products please
Say NO to these products please
DO NOT get these products they are awe full for your skin. Here is my perspective on these two brands. Clean & Clear: When I tell you that I hate this brand. I HATE IT! It’s awe full for your skin and here is what happened with me. When I got Clean & Clear when I was an early teen (around 11) I never thought anything of it. I got a two pack with an acne “prevention” product and then a facial cleanser. I was told to but the acne “prevention” product on first. When I tell you my skin burned like hell. It hurt so bad and I thought nothing of it and let it soak into my skin. Then I went in with this awful facial cleanser. My skin was awfully red afterwards and I went to sleep. After working for two days with this product I started breaking out and my skin was SO DRY. This isn’t just for people with sensitive skin like me and I break out easily and my face is very dry all the time. This also affects other people I know of and from dermatologists they DO NOT recommend this product. Mario Badescu: This brand is literally scented alcohol in a bottle. DONT BUY IT. It is awful. They dry out your skin and the ingredients list is just awful. I HATE this brand. Please don’t buy it. I don’t use it at all but when I saw my little sister use it I SNATCHED it out of her hand. I explained to her why it’s bad and showed her the ingredients list and she still uses it. I just don’t recommend this brand at all but PLEASE don’t use this. They are AWFUL! This is from my experience and my friends experience. I watch a lot of youtubers that help me. I am not a dermatologist nor a professional this is just from my experience.

FARMACY - Honey Savior All-in-One Skin Repair Salve think this is the only Farmacy product I hadn’t tried.... until now and I am so happy I did! ⭐️ honey savior has over 100+ nutrients to help nourish, protect, and support skin renewal. while it helps revitalize skin, it also helps soothe with honey. honey is a natural humectant and is super gentle in helping calm sunburns and other irritations. It’s texture is similar to Vaseline. It goes on so smooth and blends effortlessly. ⭐️ this is seriously all-in-one balm and i have already used it in multiple ways! i have incorporated this into my routine by putting it on my lips, cuticles, elbows & knees, and on blemishes that are healing. If you pick at your acne, you need this!!! also stop picking lol but this will help heal it and avoid infection. A little goes a long way!

Signature Clear Cleansing Balm
Signature Clear Cleansing Balm
⭐️ 𝗥𝗲𝘃𝗶𝗲𝘄 ⭐️ Signature Clear, Magic Oil ($38) and Magic Cleansing Balm ($34). Find it at www.signatureclear.com ——————— ⇛Beauty (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️): These products are amazing, and have quickly reached holy grail status for me. Although these are marketed as helpful for acne, they have really had a positive effect on my winter skin and I see a difference when I don’t use either the oil or the balm. You can use these products as a first cleanse, but I don’t find that to be the best use (although it works great). The oils are too precious to go down the drain. I use the Magic oil on its own after a hydrating toner, and that’s all I need for glowing, healthy skin the next day. The balm (the only difference is the balm has some beeswax, doesn’t emulsify) can be used to remove makeup, but I press it into the skin as the last layer after actives or on top of the oil if I’m feeling extra dry that day. Other than an exfoliator, I don’t need anything else to have beautiful skin. When I first started using the oil, I had a stubborn zit underneath the skin that was taking over a week to heal, the oil flattened it in 2 days. I haven’t broken out since, so I think the oil and balm combo are definitely contributing to my skin’s overall health. I seriously have to force myself to stop use so I can try other products (that’s when I know it’s HG). Absolutely in love! ——————— ⇛Business (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️, cruelty-free): I love supporting indie skincare brands that have quality products without gimmicks. The owner, Angie, reached out to me to offer to send me the Magic Oil. After I let her know that I can’t evaluate on the product’s effect on acne, she still sent me the products and gave me as much time as I needed to evaluate the product. I was so impressed with the oil, I bought the cleansing balm in a few days. My experience with the customer service and shipping has been great. I am so excited to see what else Angie brings to the market!

New & Improved Skin Care Routine *Bliss Line*
New & Improved Skin Care Routine *Bliss Line*
I’m just starting to research my products and I was extremely unsatisfied with what I had found in my current products. I’ve heard really good things about this line. I was really attracted to the lack of fragrance and super stripping chemicals. To start off let me tell you about my skin. I have struggled with dry skin for most of my life and my t-zone and chin are not only my dryers areas but they are also where I get the most acne. Correct me if I’m wrong but it’s just the overproduction of oil since I’m so dry and as the weather gets colder/dryer it gets worse. I usually get a new pimple once every two-three days. Knowing this I was looking for cleansers and toners that would help me manage the breakouts and a serum and moisturizer that will help me keep my skin soft and hydrated. Here are the products I bought along with first impressions after my first use :) bliss - Clear Genius Clarifying Gel Cleanser - This cleanser feels really gentle on my skin but it also gets the job done. My skin felt refreshed and clean but not dry. I didn’t feel like I needed to get my moisturizer on quickly before my skin dried out which is usually a challenge. bliss - Clear Genius Clarifying Toner + Serum - Over all I really enjoyed this toner. I wasn’t expecting it to be a gel but it did feel very soothing on my skin. The directions recommend using a cotton pad to apply but did feel like I had to pump out a lot to cover my whole face. I also had a lot of product squirt out from under my cotton pad when I was using the pump so I’m not super thrilled with the design. bliss - Ex-Glow-Sion Moisturizer - This has been the best moisturizer I’ve tried and at an amazing price point as well. It goes on light but doesn’t leave my skin needing more. It’s been several hours now and my face still feel soft. Conclusions: Bliss says they can clear your skin in two weeks. I’m going to be updating you guys in a week to let you know what results I’m seeing. I’m also going to be purchasing the bliss - Clear Genius Clarifying Liquid Peel because exfoliation is a must for me. I’m really excited to see what happens!
