The Ordinary: does it actually work⁉
The Ordinary is soooooo trendy these days. So I decided to go with the flow. I have SUPER dry and acne-prone skin (yep, acne can also occur with dry skin🤷♀️🤷♀️). I used to apply ORIGINS - Dr. Andrew Weil for Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Micellar Cleanser but it doesn't work on me. I tried these 2 babes from The Ordinary to fight breakouts. Here is what happened. The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% Function: brightening, reduce whitehead How to Use: apply to the whitehead directly, the amount is similar to the size of a jelly bean My Experience: it is very effective for whiteheads. My whitehead got flatten after one night. For pimples, it may need to use it for a couple of days in a role before you see the changes. I felt itchy for the first few seconds after using this product. But it was not that bad. With dry skin, I didn't feel de-hydrated. So I really like it! The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution Function: exfoliate, get rid of acne and whitehead How to Use: apply a couple drops evenly to the acne. Rinse it off with warm water after 10 minutes. I don't recommend using it too often. 1-2 times per week should be good enough. My experience: I don't think people with sensitive skin should use it. It is too irritating! My face hurt. My skin did become so smooth after I washed it off, but I don't really see the reduction of acne and whitehead. My husband really likes it though. He uses it almost every day. But his skin is really rough🙃🙃. His skin is combo oil with acne on his cheeks. This treatment had greatly reduced his acne. So I suppose it works better on oily and combo-oily skin. Not a good choice for dry and sensitive skin. Have you ever tried these two products before? Let me know 🥰

This Routine Will Save Your Skin This Spring
To avoid your skin going array with the changes of the weather, I curated this skincare routine that has proven to work wonders. Skin can be a fickle thing: one week you can have a clear, even-toned complexion, and then the next week, you can be covered with spots and red patches. My skin is more on the oily spectrum, specifically in my T-zone, and I am prone to dryness around my mouth. I’ve tried a lot of products that only makes me break out in blemishes, or don’t really do anything at all, until I went detective on Follain and Sephora to find these three holy-grail products. After using them in unison for the past two months twice a day, I can’t imagine ever leaving them behind. I start off washing my skin with warm water and use the Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser to detoxify my face and rejuvenate it with strength and cleanliness. This non-stripping wash has the sweet smell of strawberries and leaves my skin feeling purified. I then follow this step by using my Osea Ocean Cleanser to leave my skin feeling balanced and refreshed. I gently massage this cream cleanser into my face to provide a protective barrier against dirt and grime, while also fighting acne. If you’ve ever been one to battle blemishes, this cleanser will do wonders in your war as it has in mine. The final step in my process is to moisturize my face using First Aid Beauty’s Ultra Repair Cream to leave my skin feeling smooth and supple. This moisturizer helps remove and plump up fine lines and wrinkles and leaves a notable difference when you go to look at your skin the following day. I hope these products work as well for you as they have for me. I can’t imagine changing this routine any time soon – it’s my new tried and true.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Brightening Facial
This Aveeno - Positively Radiant Brightening Facial Cleanser is one of those “mom knows best” products because mama bear was right about this item! It’s a facial cleanser with soy extract that lifts away dirt, oil, and makeup that leads to brighter skin. It’s a super gentle cleanser that along with clearing the face also improves skin tone and texture, reduces dullness, and leaves skin feeling soft like a baby! It’s perfect to be used on all skin types, for example I have combo and my mom has oily and it works well on the both of us! This cleanser is oil free, soap free, and hypoallergenic! This cleanser is meant to truly enhance the natural skin radiance without stripping it from all the necessary oils. I don’t know too many cleansers that do more than just that: clean. But this one improves your skin tone and texture, brightens, and cleans. When you pump this cleanser into your hands it comes out as a semi thick green/gold iridescent color with a faint lovely scent. It’s fun to use as it’s so pretty! This is my third bottle of this Aveeno product and first tried it a few years ago! At the time I could not afford expensive cleansers and tried this one since it’s only $10.99 for 6.7oz. I like this cleanser because it works just as well as luxurious cleansers and I feel like my skin looks great after i use it during my evening skincare routine. Thus far it has NOT made me break out or given me any rashes. I truly recommend this item if you’re looking to try drug store skincare items. For the price, ease of use and purchase, and effectiveness I 100% recommend this cleanser.

Best Facial Cleanser Awards
The texture of La Mer Cleansing Foam is a soft light green paste, with a light fragrance of magnolia. It creates not too much foam, and it is very gentle. After using it, I can feel that my face is very clean, and the skin is not tight. It is completely mild and non-irritating. When using this cleanser, my skin does not turn red. It helps to clean my skin completely. It contains the essence of La Mer lotion, so after using it to wash the face, the skin will become white and translucent. This is the best facial cleanser I have ever used. That is why I want to give La Mer Cleansing Foam cleanser for a brightening cleanser award. Lancôme Crème-Mouse Comfort facial cleanser is the cleanser that I will buy indefinitely. I want to say that this is the 10 bottles I have used. The cream of this cleanser is a light pink color and it has a light rose scent. This scent makes me feel comfortable and relax when I use it to wash my face every night. It is more suitable for normal skin and dry skin. I squeeze only a little amount per time and it will create very rich foam. Even I use this foam to do massage on my face, I will not feel that my skin is irritating at all. And after using it to wash my face, I think that my skin is very clean and very elastic. That is why I want to give this Lancôme cleansing Foam as the best cleanser for dry skin. This Estée Launder Clean Cleansing Gelée helps to clean my T-zone perfectly. It is excellent for sensitive skin without drying it out. It can be washed or wiped off easily. I love the smell of this cleaner. It leaves my skin soft and clean. The pearls bring help to exfoliate the face very well. I would recommend it for sensitive skin.

I tried this Aveeno series
Last month my face was in a terrible condition. Probably because of the weather and long-time wearing mask at work. I turn from a combination to sensitive skin type. My girl recommended me to try the aveeno series. She is sensitive and she has been using their products for a while and loved it. I’ve tried their body lotion which I was okay with. Since the price is quite friendly and it is actually quite easy to get from drugstores especially during this pandemic, i decided to give it a try. I got these three in Walmart. Pretty pricy. I went with a cleanser, scrub (I know it is not recommended to use scrub when skin is sensitive, but my T area is pealing a lot. Aveeno - Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub Lessons learned. Ended up my skin was getting worse ! So girls, do not try to use scrubs when your skin is in a terrible condition) Smells great but this product just didn't work out for my skin type. Acne started showing on my skin after using this product. All in all not really bad but not amazing. It’s a good cheaper drug store facial cleanser. Aveeno - Positively Radiant Brightening Facial Cleanser This is a very gentle cleanser. Average drug store face wash. I like how gentle this product was on my skin and I love that it didn't dry out my face after using it. As the name says it has this silvery finish to it that makes the illusion of having a shiny skin. I prefer liquid form cleansers but since I bought it I am still using it, I can't say I love it. Aveeno - Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 This moisturizer is good value for its price range however the texture did feel very thick on my skin. Not greasy goes on smooth and has very light scent. After using for a week, I noticed that this moisturizer felt too oily for my skin. I didn’t like the way it felt on my hands when putting it on my face. I would say it is a great product for winter times. Overall this moisturizer felt too oily for my skin. I didn’t like the way it felt on my hands when putting it on my face. The whole series of Aveeno is very gentle and would work for many sensitive skins, I personally do not enjoy that much. Maybe because I am a combination that goes sensitive. I would really prefer something lighter during my sensitive time.
