Is your skin craaazy dry? Read my do’s and don’t
I’ve got very dry skin in the colder months. I also live in a dry environment. I’ve put together some general do’s and donts that work for me when my skin is seriously dry. Now, please note that I enjoy 99% of the products I’m going to mention, but some I just have to reserve for using in warmer months when my skin is less dry. DO pay attention to what kind of first cleanse you use. I like FORMULA 10.0.6 - Bare Face Beauty Skin-Hydrating Cleansing Oil because it breaks down my makeup and leaves my skin feeling soft. DON’T use a first cleanse that dries your skin out like the GOOD MOLECULES - Instant Cleansing Balm (a little bit drying) DO look at ingredients lists and brand descriptions of cleansers. Opt for something with a gel or milky texture that either doesn’t lather are all, or barely lathers. I enjoy the bareMinerals - Pureness Gel Cleanser (but not if you’re sensitive to coconut). DON’T use a cleanser with harsh acids, such as salicylic acid in the TRULY - CBD Jelly Anti Acne Facial Cleanser , because they can dry out your skin even more. DO use a hydrating toner. I love the PAULA'S CHOICE - Resist Advanced Replenshing Toner because it contains hyaluronic acid and has a soothing, milky texture. DON’T use toners with astringent properties or essential oils like the MARIO BADESCU - Witch Hazel & Lavender Toner (I steaigjt is just don’t really like this even when my skin isn’t super dry). Toners with those ingredients can dry your skin out further. DO layer and mix serums (make sure you do some research first!). I enjoy the Wyldflower Labs - Sunshine Serum - Multitasking Day Repair Serum and LILY SADO - Green Tea + Vitamin C Super Serum . DO use some chemical exfoliants when experiencing a breakout, but be careful to use a concentrated spot application. I like the PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator because it is effective and can be easily applied in an affected area. I use this 1-3x/wk in the PM. DON’T use harsh chemical exfoliants and don’t use them too frequently. The YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner is very strong. It can cause irritation, especially on dry areas, and if used to often has caused white heads. DO moisturize! I love the pixi - Rose Ceramide Cream when I have stubborn dry patches that won’t go away. I also like the unscented, soothing GOOD MOLECULES - Silicone-Free Priming Moisturizer . DON’T use a moisturizer that’s not geared towards extra dry skin like the Clark's Botanicals - Jasmine Vital Cream While this is a nice moisturizer, its light gel texture is more suited for normal-oily skin, or dry skin in the summer.
FORMULA 10.0.6-Bare Face Beauty Skin-Hydrating Cleansing Oil
Bought this one on a whim, and I’m not mad about it. MARIO BADESCU - Witch Hazel & Lavender Toner Giving this four stars, because I do have a slight sting when I apply this. I do notice that it does seem to pick up a lot of gunk along the way, and the smell is oh so nice I only use this one at night (as lavender is calming) and I stick to my dr Jart+ for morning toning. For $14, it’s worth a try, but I don’t think I’ll repurchase once I get through this bottle. MARIO BADESCU - Witch Hazel & Lavender Toner

My Nighttime routine with before and after!!
Hey guys! No one asked for this but here ya go. I thought showing my skincare routine might help to show you some of my fav products all at once featuring before and after! I’m planning on dedicating a post to each product mentioned to give you the full rundown of my thoughts. I’ll also be doing a morning skincare routine edition within the next few weeks. Products: philosophy - Purity One-Step Facial Cleanser (not shown) GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Makeup Remover The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA MARIO BADESCU - Witch Hazel & Lavender Toner The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% FORMULA 10.0.6 - Thirst No More Moisturizer FORMULA 10.0.6 - Keep Your Cool Mask
FORMULA 10.0.6-Keep Your Cool Mask
I started using Mario Badescu products about 6 months ago due to the hype. I was not a conscious skincare shopper and thought it was something new to try. With my new knowledge of ingredients, certain chemicals in these products can harm you! This company uses a lot of dyes and fragrance to make the product look prettier, but it leads to congestion, dryness, and acne in the long run. I try to stay away from those but they smell really good! MARIO BADESCU - Healing & Soothing Mask This mask is an exception from what I said there^ . This mask does a great job at drying acne and making them go away in a couple days. It has niacinamide (my favorite for managing oil and sebum production), Zinc, AHA, BHA, Sulfur, and other seed extracts and I just love it. MARIO BADESCU - Enzyme Cleansing Gel First of all, this cleanser smells like papayas and it tastes good if is drips in your mouth from washing. But, it didn’t do much for my skin. I really didn’t see an improvement of dullness, acne, oil production, and texture at all. I use it sometimes in the morning to attempt at brightening my tired ass, but I’ve never been too impressed. MARIO BADESCU - Special Cucumber Lotion I REALLY don’t like this product. It is not hydrating, in fact, it made my combo skin dryer, it has multiple dyes in it, fragrance, alcohol, you name it. I didn’t see an improvement in my occasional breakouts, in fact I think it made them more irritated. Don’t recommend MARIO BADESCU - Witch Hazel & Lavender Toner I mean, it’s aight. It’s your standard wit hazel, but with added alcohol and fragrance. It’s fine for every once in a while but not every day. MARIO BADESCU - Vitamin C Serum I liked this serum. It’s helped with my dark circles A TON and same with my hyperpigmentation. Definitely recommend. MARIO BADESCU - Seaweed Night Cream Didn’t dig it. It did hydrate my skin for sure, but made it a little too greasy for my liking. It also has alcohol and fragrance and I didn’t like that either for my sensitive skin.
MARIO BADESCU-Enzyme Cleansing Gel
hey, this is my skin care routine and it works very well for me. my skin rarely has pimples! i also use different face wash items that i will show in my next post! this is the stuff i use when i get out of the shower! mario badescu-witch hazel and lavender toner: the scent is very calming as most lavender scents are. this works very well for me, and is always very refreshing! bliss-rose gold rescue moisturizer: i have very sensitive skin, so this moisturizer is the bomb! it doesn’t have a strong scent, and it soothes my skin every time i put it on! mario badescu-facial spray with aloe, chamomile, and lavender: this has the same scent as the toner! this always hydrates my skin, and leaves it looking bright! the body shop- tea tree oil: this stuff works miracles. i put it on all my target areas, and somehow it works by the next day! this scent is very strong, but i still love it!

Not seeing results
I have been using this toner for a few months and I haven’t really seen any results. After using the THAYERS - Cucumber Facial Mist my skin will feel kind of tight and dry, but after using this toner my skin doesn’t. It smells like lavender and really calms you, so I only use it at night. I would not repurchase this because it is kind of overpriced and also I didn’t see results.
