Updating this as I write reviews for the product I use on a daily basis

Cleanser: Aveeno Clear Complxion Cream Cleanser

Face Scrub: Clinique Skin Supplies or Men Face Scrub

Clinique Skin Supplies For Men Face Scrub is the best face scrub ever. Yes it says for men, it is designed to help improve men’s skin for shaving but I have been using it and its been great. Just because it says for men or women on a product that doesn’t mean you should limit yourself to what you can use. This face scrub is cheaper than most of the good exfoliators made for women that you can find at Sephora and you get more product. My favorite thing about this scrub is it tingles on your skin after you wash it off. The scrub particles are  small and round so it does not scratch your face. It does a great job of removing all the dead skin cells off and you’re left with silky smooth skin.

Toner: Neutrogena

Moisturizer: Clinique Moisture Surge

This product is my favorite moisturizer because of how quickly it absorbs into the skin. My skin feels very silky smooth after applying it. I discovered this when I had a lot of dry patches on my skin during the winter time and after using it a few days my dry patches were gone. This product is great I just wish it came in a tube instead of a jar to prevent contamination.

This is a light, comfortable cream/gel plumps skin with hydration for a full 24 hours. Fine lines, flakiness and tightness are washed away. In their place—a sense of supple, firm, vibrant well-being, even through shifts in humidity. One ‘drink’ and skin looks and feels happier, healthier. This moisturizer gives immediate results and absorbs into the skin instantly. You can also use this midday for extra moisture over you makeup and as a 5 minute mask massaging it onto clean skin and blotting off excess with a tissue.

Spot Treatment: Mario Badescu Drying Lotion

Mario Badescu’s Drying Lotion is for acne spot treatment made with a blend of Calamine and Salicylic Acid to clear up and soothe  whiteheads overnight. A small dab of this lotion will heal and dry pimples quickly with its unique blend. Salicylic Acid is a widely used ingredient in acne targeted skin care because it helps to exfoliate the top layer of skin and penetrates deep into the pores and Calamine is an oxide that helps to soothe your breakout to prevent scratching which can make the more red. This product is great for itchy mosquito bites, razor bumps, and ingrown hairs.The best time to use this is before bed after cleansing and moisturizing.
