Recently skincare has become a huge passion of mine. I have struggled with my skin since I was 12, I have very oily, sensitive, acne prone skin. I started going to a dermatologist in 7th grade for my acne, I tried every topical treatment and antibiotic that was on the market at the time and nothing worked for my finally junior year of high school my skin cleared up acne wise but I was still left scars and excessive oiliness which I am finally getting under control with this routine.
Boscia Makeup-Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil // This is the first step in my skincare routine at night, it is the absolute best makeup remover. I take a pump or 2 and work it into my skin and it breaks down all of the makeup I'm wearing (even longwear and waterproof) then I add a little water into my hands and work it into my skin and it turns the oil into a milky cleanser and every bit of makeup I was wearing washes away.
Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser // After removing my makeup at night or first thing in the morning I use this cleanser. I have used this and other charcoal cleansers for years and love them because they really help to pull out dirt and oil to prevent and clear up breakouts. This cleanser warms up when you first put it on your skin to open up the pores so it gets a deeper clean. It leaves my skin feeling super clean but never dry.
Clarisonic // I love my clarisonic I have had it since middle school or high school. I use it every night with my cleanser to really get deep clean. The clarisonic washes your face 11 times deeper than you hands alone, getting any makeup, oil or dirt left behind. I notice a huge difference in the texture and clarity of my skin when I use my clarisonic.
Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater // In the mornings after I pat my face dry I mist it with this facial spray and I love it! The aloe and rose water calm down and redness and irritation I have in my skin and I notice that I am less oily when I use it.
Caudalie Moisturizing Sorbet // This is my holy grail moisturizer! I have featured it in posts here. It is perfect for anyone with sensitive or oily skin, it's the perfect amount of moisture without making my skin even more oily or irritating it. I use it every morning after the face mist and then my skin is prepped and ready for my makeup routine.
Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum // I discovered this product at the beginning of the summer and it has been a game changer. It does so many amazing things to my skin I can't see myself finding a better product. It has started to clear up some scaring, it gets rid of breakout so quickly, and has reduced my pores and oiliness. I recently ordered this oil to layer on top of it and I'm so excited to try it because since being back in Arizona my skin has felt a little more tight and dry.
Glam Glow Thirstymud // This is my favorite moisturizing mask that I've tried! I use it once a week and always after flying. You can use it like a traditional mask for 20 minutes or sleep in it over night. I usually use it as a sleep mask and my skin feels so replenished in the mornings.
Origins Clear Improvement // This is my favorite mask if I'm breaking out or my skin is very congested. It really dries out my skin in a good way, diminishing active breakouts and preventing more. It also reduces oil for a few days after using it.
I hope you enjoyed this long post! What are some of the products in your skincare routine? Leave me a comment letting me know, I love to try new products!
