#Shu Uemura - Anti/Oxi+ pollutant & dullness clarifying cleansing oil[products]# This is the Anti/Oxi+ pollutant & dullness clarifying cleansing oil from Shu Uemura that is formulated to cleanse away micro impurities, makeup and dirt. It has green tea extract, papaya extract and mornings extract. It’s anti-oxidant and helps against pollution. This all sounds so good and I’m so sad it didn’t work for me. It smells bad first of all and I feel like maybe I got a bad batch? Second, it’s super thick in consistency and felt almost too thick... it wouldn’t wash off my face even. It looks okay in the bottle, lightweight and all but it doesn’t emulsify or anything when washed off. So I definitely think I somehow got a faulty product but I can only review what I got so... It was bad! I wouldn’t recommend this oil from what I have experienced. It was expensive too, $35 for this 150ml bottle. The formula sounds amazing and the whole thing on the website as well but it just wouldn’t wash off and left my face oily and sticky, I tried it only three times because of this.

Cleansing Routine For Acne-Prone Skin✨
I cannot stress just how important cleansing is in a skincare routine. I believe in a double cleanse because, for me, the first step is always to remove my makeup, and then cleanse the skin. Removing your makeup and cleansing your skin in just one step with one cleanser isn’t enough! Removing only makeup from your skin isn’t called deep cleansing as it’s only surface level! Build up of sebum deep in the skin can cause congestion and breakouts in the future! Here is a breakdown of my morning and evening cleansing routine. Morning: A gentle gel cleanser is perfect for the morning because your face shouldn’t be that dirty from sleeping! But as you sleep, there can be build up of oils on the surface of your skin, and possibly retinol and other active ingredients that you applied the night before. It’s important to remove these actives that can be sensitive to sunlight properly before stepping outside during the day! JC Jane Clare - HA Cleansing Gel This gel cleanser is gentle but effective. It doesn’t leave my skin feeling stripped or dry. It’s perfect for my combination skin! Evening: My first cleanse is always a cleansing oil or cleansing balm (basically an oil in solid form!). Oils break down ALL makeup super easily, fast and is effective without you having to tug at your skin which can cause premature wrinkles! I love a good waterproof mascara but they literally melt in 5 seconds as soon as I massage a cleansing oil into my lashes. shu uemura - Anti/oxi+ pollutant & dullness clarifying cleansing oil I looooove this cleansing oil. It feels lightweight on my skin but is super effective! I start with a dry face and dry hands, massage this oil in my skin until my makeup looks pretty dissolved and then I add a bit of water on my hands and massage my face again. This allows the oil to then emulsify and properly rinse away the makeup from my skin without leaving any residue! My second cleanse is a cleanser meant for acne-prone skin! Every other night I’ll use it with my Clarisonic Face Cleansing Device! LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Medicated Gel Cleanser for Acne Prone Skin This has salicylic acid in it which is a great active ingredient that gets deep into the layers of your skin to cleanse and purify the skin. This helps so much with treating my existing breakouts and preventing more from showing up! It’s a great cleanser that I recommend to all my friends with “problem” skin. What do u think of my cleansing routine? Do you double-cleanse? Why or why not?
As juicy as strawberry, as bright as Tofu
freshbeautyg - Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash You probably have already seen this around with great reviews. At first. I was like "eeh, just a hype!" Oh wrong!!

MY THOUGHTS: If you are scent sensitive, you will not like this product. I personally love the citrus scent of this and how it made my skin feel and look after using. This is a lotion cleanser so you will not feel squeaky clean afterwards as it is highly moisturizing which I also like. I find that this worked best for me in the morning. It is also great as part of a double-cleansing routine. You get a lot of product and very little is needed so this will last. PLUS, both ingredients and directions were in English on box - BONUS!! Definitely recommend!
Decanal Cleansing Lotion
A gentle creamy foaming cleanser with the goodness of lime for a smoother, more balanced and even-looking skin.

Definitely works great!

Leaves my skin so soft and bright!
This is a 2-in-1 (😱) exfoliating cleanser that both removes excess oil and dirt while also gently buffing away dead skin cells. I know we’ve learned to fear most multitasking products (think men’s 15-in-1 shampoo) but this one is actually a friend! 🍓 The only reason I dislike this is because it calls for a double cleanse. I personally don’t double cleanse, but since using this face wash I’ve had to start, which throws off my routine just a little. Besides that, I’m in love with this lil baby 💗 It uses white sugar crystals to exfoliate, which are super soft + fine, and actually melt while you scrub. This makes it gentle enough for daily use 🙌🏼 to me it smells like a refreshing glass of strawberry lemonade (hence the lemon in the photo lol). Other key ingredients here are strawberry + black currant seed extract, which are meant to give your complexion a healthy glow. Strawberries are a killer source of vitamin C, so I knew right away that this would help brighten ✨ this wash also uses grapeseed oil to help keep your skin hydrated. This has become my daily pick-me-up; it smells so sweet and leaves my skin so soft and bright! I’m excited to see long-term retexturizing effects from this as well 💫

🍓SUGAR STRAWBERRY EXFOLIATING FACE WASH🍓
SUGAR STRAWBERRY EXFOLIATING FACE WASH// Highlights// 🍓White sugar crystals 🍓Black currant & strawberry fruit extracts 🍓Grape seed oil 🍓Soap berry peel A physical exfoliator is anything with little pieces that are massaged into the skin. This helps lift up dead skin, impurities etc. In my opinion physical exfoliators often get an eyebrow raise and a smirk by most skincare junkies. I think most people over did it on apricot/walnut scrub in their teens and have instantly lumped all physical exfoliators in the same category of ouch. This is NOT on of those scrubs. In my skincare routine I use a physical exfoliator once or twice a week. It’s important to be gentle and use a light pressure. This goes a long way! The key is to find out what works for your skin. If your skin feels tight, irritated, red etc. then you need to take note and cut back on the frequency as well as pressure. Be nice to your skin! With all that being said— the Fresh Strawberry Scrub is truly gentle... like extraaaaa gentle. The granules vary in size and the texture is the perfect carrier (thick but thins evenly when exposed to water). To make this scrub even gentler you can add more water as you softly massage. But honestly, it’s already incredibly gentle.

Althea Bare Essentials Contour Cleanser Description: A rich and refreshing foaming cleanser that contains micro capsules to both cleanse and gently exfoliate away impurities while improving blood circulation for that V-shaped look. - Althea Impression ||| My first impression on this cleanser is actually quite good as it's giving me a nice refreshing feeling on my skin while cleansing. There's noticeable micro capsules that actually exfoliate my skin gently and gotten rid some of flaky area on my neck due to allergic reactions. The scent is lemony or that's probably verbena should smells like. Only small amount is needed as this cleanser gives so much foam as it lathers so a little goes a long way with this one. Thoughts ||| While I was in the period of testing the product where I used this facial cleanser everyday in my morning routine for 2 weeks, I do find this cleanser is slightly drying out my skin so these days I only use this cleanser every other day and followed up with facial mist right after I rinse it off as I don't want my skin feeling tight; yes, I no longer dry my skin with towel after cleansing. Overall, 4/5. It’s definitely above average and I’d like to recommend for those with oily skin as we tend to accumulate dead skin cells faster than average people.
