Fresh Skin Brings Big smiles

Hi there everyone, hope all is well!

Here are a couple of things that I love which are cheap good products and work well with my skin type in MY OPINION =)

I guess u can say my skin type is normal meaning it's not to dry or oily it's just in between. Back when I started high school my face was real oily but as when u get older the texture changes. I love washing off my makeup with good cleansing and exfoliating products. It's very important to exfoliate those dead skin cells once every week but I like doing it twice a week. This helps get rid of any excess residue, dirt and dead skin cells in order to prevent skin outbreaks and other impurities that comes with the game.

Cleansing helps remove makeup, oils on the skin and unclog pores. A moisturizer with SPF 30 is great to use becuase it delivers anti-aging ingredients and protects the skin from sun damage. Also, it helps keep the skin smooth and hydrated no matter if u have dry or oily skin. So with that said here goes my face routine for now. Check out this site for more info:

First I apply my moisturizer which is called Green Tea day cream which has dead sea minerals and green tea extracts. Its perfect for me it does not irritate or breakout my skin. It came a a pack with a facial mask but I haven't tried it yet. I bought it at big lots for $5, great deal. But I don't really know where else to get it I have never seen it anywhere else. The product has glycerin which is a humectant that helps keep skin hydrated. Smells ok goes on smooth and light. The downside is that it does not have any SPF.

After moisturizing I apply my face primer if I am going out for a girls night or I want my makeup to last on for a long time then I go on to my foundation. Then before I go to bed I cleanse my face with Neutrogena's one step gentle cleanser. This cleanser claims to completely remove the makeup off of your face. It definetly does the job!! In just one cleanse it removes 99.1 % of it. I generally like cleansing twice so it really gets the job done if not I sometimes use a cleansing wipe.

Then after cleansing I exfoliate but I don't exfoliate everyday just twice a week. I use Neutrogena's Deep Clean Gentle Scrub oil free. This formula is gentle enough to use everyday but what I like that it removes my makeup too and leaves my face soft, hydrated and GLOWY. It's like I can really tell it removed all that dead skin and dirt.

I don't really use toners because I don't have that much of an oily face and plus their job duties are the same as a facial cleanser. But back in high school i did use a toner which was the infamous Witch Hazel, and oddly I love the smell of that toner=)

One more thing, with my moisturizer since it doesn't have SPF I use this Lancome moisturizer which really doesn't work well for me when applied alone. It's too greasy and breaks me out. So when I mix the two together, my moisturizer and the lancome moisturizer it works really well. Does not break me out at all.

Look at my cute bracelet hehe I got for $10 at the mall..It has cute lil charms. The bow on it stole my heart that's y I bought it lol..i love bows!!


Hope u enjoyed my blogging today and if u have any questions ask away ladies if u have any recommendations on any other good cheap skin products let a sista know, hehe!!
Have a great day!
..Take care..

Does the cleanser remove mascara as well? Just curious if it removes everything, without burning the eyes.
