PM skincare routine with Differin!
Hi friends❤️ In this post I’m going to walk you through my PM routine on the nights that I use Differin! Step 1: first cleanse If I am wearing makeup I use the THE inkey LIST - Oat Cleansing Balm This is by far my favorite product in my whole skincare collection! I cannot say enough good things about this product. I would give it more stars if I could! It gets ALL of my makeup off including mascara and also feels soooooo soothing on my skin. The texture makes it so relaxing to massage on my face after a long day. The smell isn’t great but it doesn’t bother me at all, just smells like oats. Possibly the best thing about this product is the value! It is only $10 for a huge tube that has lasted me almost 3 months and it’s not close to running out. I highly recommend this product because it is the best price for a first cleanse that I’ve found and is very soothing on my dry skin! Step 2: Second cleanse For my second cleanse after my makeup is off, I’ve been loving VANICREAM - Gentle Facial Cleanser This product is super gentle and doesn’t leave my face feeling dry after! I was on vacation a few weeks ago and forgot a cleanser so I picked this up and ended up absolutely loving it! Step 3: moisturizer I have been using the CeraVe - Skin Renewing Night Cream on the nights I use Differin first because I have dry skin to start out with, plus Differin really makes my skin flaky! I have had this night cream for awhile and it is good. I switched to using the CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream but it made my face sting and I think it was making me break out more 😭 so now I just use that on my body. So now I’m back to finishing the renewing night cream. I gave this product 4/5 stars only because I’m not in love with it. It is good but I will probably try a different moisturizer for night time when I finish this tub! Step 4: Differin Gel I have only been using DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel every other night consistently for the past 2 weeks. This is the only reason I have given it 4 stars, I don’t know what my results with this product will be yet! I will keep you all updated on how it is helping my skin. This is my last try before going to a derm about my acne. I am hopeful that it will help, but I do know it can take a few months! ❤️❤️❤️
SKIN UPDATE #3 🙌
my skin is looking so glowy so far! But still some acne and dark spots. My acne is definitely decreasing! Especially the ones deep under the skin. I also have a almost completely new skincare routine which I will be making a separate post on but I linked all the products in this post too!
MY 2X WEEK NIGHT ROUTINE (MONDAYS & FRIDAYS)
1. BIODERMA - Sensibio H2O Soothing Micellar Cleansing Water *I use it every night for double cleansing 2. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser 3. I'm from - Rice Toner 4. PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator It’s gently for my extremely dry skin, it absorbs quickly, it texture it’s like water, and doesn’t have a smell or color. **I only use it on my nose & chin and if I have a pimple on it too** 5. íUNIK - Black Snail Restore Serum Love this serum, it’s hydrating, if you keep it on a cold place when you use it it feels soo good on your skin. 6. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Cicaplast Baume B5 for Dry Skin Irritations Since I’m using a BHA I use it to keep a better hydration, and moisturizing skin. And if I have any irritation in other parts of my face I use it there too
Remove makeup or remove moisture
BIODERMA - Sensibio H2O Soothing Micellar Cleansing Water 𝐑𝐞𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐝 𝐟𝐨𝐫: If you are looking for a quick cleanse of your makeup or sunscreen, this will definitely be your go to. It is liquidy and watery; all you need is a cotton pad or tissue, and wipe those nasties off! 𝐊𝐞𝐲 𝐈𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬: Micelles, whose composition is inspired by the skin’s lipids, are invisible cleansing micro-droplets. They have the ability to capture impurities while preserving the skin’s natural protective film. Plus calming ingredients like Aloe, Green tea and cucumber, this is suitable for all skin types! 𝐌𝐲 𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐡𝐭𝐬: I am more of an oil cleanser person, even so, when I used this, it was very convenient and quick to remove the nasties of the day. I personally do not think it is recommended for heavy makeup though, but light makeup and daily SPF will be easily wiped off using this. I always double cleanse anyway, so this is just my first step. One thing I really like is that this is: Alcohol-free, paraben-free, silicone-free, sulfate-free, allergen-free, fragrance-free, pregnancy-friendly, non-comedogenic and oil-free. Phew...long list of non nasties! Which is great! ✔️Bioderma only uses Ingredients that will actually Help Your Skin - No Fillers! They are widely available, so do check them out in your local area.
makeup: help I’ve fallen & cant get up
“A luxurious cleansing balm that gently dissolved makeup and excess oil without stripping sensitive, irritated skin of the moisture it needs” performance | full star | ya girl is hella sensitive, and that is for sure what it do, luxurious though? Feel like I would have used a different word than that lolol not saying it’s cheap, just think maybe soothing or even simply “gentle” hahaha texture | full star | this is my favorite texture for a balm, just make sure to shake the bottle because the oils separate a lil scent | .75 star | def smells like seeet almond oil with oat, it’s nice but not my favorite. No synthetic fragrance in here packaging | .5 star | plastic tube, but I love the text on the tube especially on the back of every product they highlight which step it should be in your routine and I love that it’s a balm in a tub so I don’t have to put my grimy fingys in a jar if I don’t get enough ingredients | .3 star | there’s a decent number of alcohol based ingredients with a mild immunotoxicity risk from overexposure (mind you this could be to the worker inhaling these fumes and being around them often, not necessarily from topical application plus they’re toward the end of the ingredients list so lower percentage, not tryna scare anyone just sharing the facts) value | full star | only $10 scoreeee, and seriously don’t let the ingredients scare lol Total 4.55 out of 6 stars ✨

Review: Krave Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser
👍👍👍This cleanser is super gentle and has one of the most unique textures I’ve ever used! It’s jelly and snot-like and you only need a pea sized amount because it is very slippery! It’s an awesome morning cleanser to get off any residue from nighttime, doesn’t leave skin tight or dry. 💰 $16.00- it’s priced just right! And easy to order online if you’re in the US 🗣 I will say this probably won’t be a good nighttime cleanser if you wear makeup, sunscreen or have very oily skin

Hydrating cleansing gel 🍃
I always wash my face before going to sleep if I don't, I feel very uncomfortable, it is also important to wash your face to remove all the impurities that we have collected throughout the day.🍃 This product has worked well for me, contains hyaluronic acid, helps to clean and remove dirt, impurities, oil and bacteria, I have been using it for a long time and so far it has worked quite well for me.🍃 Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel

The 👏🏼LITERAL👏🏼 HOLY 👏🏼GRAIL👏🏼
Let me tell you about this product from @LUSH, LUSH - Ultrabland . This is the HOLY GRAIL of oil based cleansers. I cannot speak highly enough. It’s actually somewhat of a controversial recommendation that I have given people because on some skin types it causes breakouts the first week or two that you use it. Do not be alarmed if this happens because I think the skin is getting used to having a thicker cleanser that is oil based. That being said, if you stick it out for the first two weeks then you will not be disappointed. Ultrabland is a thick oily cream that you smooth onto dry skin and rub in for 2-3 minutes before washing it off with a hot (and I mean HOT 🥵) wet facecloth. Don’t tell anyone but I steal the towels from my gym for this purpose. I know it sounds gross but I wash them very thoroughly. Anyway, I just wipe it off with my hot facecloth and you can see just how much your makeup remover left behind or if you didn’t wear makeup, the residue from the day, comes off your skin. The feeling after wiping it off is soft and moisturized skin. I can understand how it may be too thick and leave a residue for some people but I assure you if you wash it off with a hot facecloth it feels soooooooo good. It can be moisturizing enough to not need a night cream but sometimes I will follow up with serum and moisturizer (totally a personal choice and depends greatly on how much time I have or how extra I want to be). The only (and I mean only) downside to this cleanser for me is the time it takes. It’s not an easy low maintenance addition to your routine with all the rubbing, waiting for the water to get hot and wiping but it’s totally worth it. Oh and last thing to note is that I never use this in the morning mainly because I think it leaves too much moisture on my face and makes my skin feel thick. This being said, it’s great before bed year round but especially in the winter. I urge anyone and everyone to try this. It comes in two sizes and isn’t crazy expensive. Plus, I’ve found that most LUSH products last me a good six months before I have to buy again. NOTE: this review is from a dedicated LUSHie yet I’m not biased because, like with any brand, there are things I didn’t like that I’ve tried BUT, I’ve been using Ultrabland for 5+ years now and am obsessed with it.
my favorite gentle cleanser
FARMACY - Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser is a cult favorite for a reason: this cleanser is so gentle and hydrating despite being a foaming cleanser, due to ingredients like honey and hyaluronic acid. It smells very faintly of honey and foams easily without leaving my skin feeling stripped. The pump packaging has always worked well for me, and of course the branding (like all of Farmacy’s products) is beautiful. I reach for this if my skin is very dry or sensitive from ingredients like acids and tretinoin. I love this cleanser so much and I really want to try the new body wash, Bee Clean!

Wash Your Face Without Stripping it of Moisture
Cocokind’s Oil to Milk Cleanser is a prebiotic cleanser made from fermented oats. It’s microbiome-friendly and ph-balancing. cocokind - Oil to milk cleanser How To Use: + Dampen your finger tips and apply a dime-size amount onto your face and massage. + As the name suggests, it goes from an oil/gel-like consistency and turns into a milk-like consistency once dampened. My Thoughts: ✨ I feel it does a nice job of removing my makeup — not waterproof mascara, however, which I wear at least 5 x a week. ✨ It’s gentle and doesn’t strip my skin ✨ It leaves my skin feeling clean and soft ✨ It’s ideal for all skin types ✨ Bonus: the tube is made of sugarcane and is 100% recyclable (cap excluded) This retails for $25 CAD. While it’s on the expensive side considering how small the tube is (86 mL), I think it’s worth trying as you only need a small amount to cleanse your whole face :)
