Not to sound like DJ Khaled or anything, but keeping my skin healthy and clear is a major key for me.
Thanks to genetics, I’ve never really had an acne problem; but I do get an occasional pimple/zit from not eating right or just cause my face feels like hating me that day. I also have combo/oily skin (especially around my nose) and I will do and try just about anything to help keep it under control. I’ve been using these products to help my skin situations and it has been paying off!
Dickinson’s Original Witch Hazel Pore Perfecting Toner – OMG I cannot rave about this enough. This cleanses and conditions my skin and pores without leaving me dry. I use this to balance my oil levels on my skin and I definitely notice less oil peeking through my makeup throughout the day. It also helps minimize any zit I have and helps take off any makeup residue (I don’t use it as a makeup remover). I also feel like it smooths out my skin too, I usually have little like, elevated pores that you can see under my makeup and this smooths them out! The only thing I have a tiny like, “problem” with it is the smell. It is all natural witch hazel and it’s very organic/botanical smelling, but the scent reminds me of tequila (me and tequila don’t get along) haha. Every time I use it, I’m like, “okay don’t smell it,” and next thing you know I’m sticking soaked cotton pad near my nose and taking a whiff of the tequila. Maybe I secretly like tequila…but either way, I will keep using this till the day I die! And p.s. it’s like 5 bucks!
Neutrogena Clear Pore Oil-Eliminating Astringent – This bad boy is POWERFUL. It contains salicylic acid to treat and prevent breakouts. I use this when I see a pimple on my face, by the next day or two, the pimple is pretty much gone. This does dry me out a little, so I only use it when I see/feel a pimple, and it does have the tiniest sting, but it’s really effective at what it does.
Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water – I use this as a makeup remover and I love it! It’s super gentle and leaves my skin feeling nice and soft. It takes off the toughest makeup with ease! I love using this at night because, I’ma be real with you guys, I HATE taking off my makeup at night and washing my face, but this makes it easy-peasy.
I use all these products by soaking a cotton pad and applying it to my skin and neck! If you’re in the market for some new toners/cleansers definitely try these, they are all from the drugstore and all have a good price! Let me know if you guys have used any of these or are planning to!
