Here’s an update on my skin care routine. I had to make one. I’m re-evaluating the skin care products I’m using. Making sure that they are vegan and cruelty-free. It’ll take me time, but I’ll get there. 😊😊

Face Wash: Trader Joe’s Spa Face Wash with Tea Tree Oil (am + pm)

Fortunately, my favorite face wash is vegan and cruelty-free. It’s really good for oily, acne-prone skin without making the skin feel dry. I highly recommend it if you have similar skin to mine. I know people that use this face wash with dry, normal, combination skin too. It works for them.

Toner: Pixi skintreats Retinol Tonic (pm) & Glow Tonic (am)

Pixi is a cruelty-free brand, but not all of their products are vegan. I believe the Retinol Tonic and Glow Tonic are vegan. I’ve found conflicting information about the Glow Tonic. I will continue to use it unless it’s not vegan.

Eye Care: Eva Naturals Youth Restoring Eye Gel (am + pm)

This is my second bottle of the eye gel. It helps with dark under eye circles, but it’s not moisturizing at all. I’m on the fence about this eye gel. I want something more moisturizing, but we’ll see how it goes. This eye gel is not tested on animals.

Serums:

All of them are vegan and not tested on animals. 🙌🏻

There’s a possible chance of me dropping Cos De BAHA Vitamin C Serum from my skin care routine. I don’t see the point on having two bottles of Vitamin C in my routine. I haven’t noticed a difference between the two.

Acne Care: Acne.org BP Treatment Gel (pm)

This is a staple in my skin care routine for treating acne. It works! If you have acne, give it a try. You won’t regret it! I know it worked for me! Do you know what else??? It is vegan and not tested on animals.

Face Masks:

Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay mask isn’t tested on animals. It’s vegan. The only sheet mask I’m using right now is the Herbal Infusion Rosehip Seed Extract Sheet Mask. It’s not tested on animals either. I still have a pack of Dermal sheet masks left. I haven’t been using them. The sheet masks have not been tested on animals, but not all of the sheet masks are vegan. I won’t purchase again after I finish them.

Face Scrub: Acure Brightening Facial Scrub

This face scrub is gritty enough to remove dead skin cells off of my facial skin. It seems to last forever too. A little goes a long way when it comes to this facial scrub. I only need a small amount for it to work. It’s also a vegan skin care brand. Cruelty-free too.

That’s my current skin care routine. 😁

To someone that’s not interested in skin care, this looks like a lot of work. Looking at my skin care routine, it looks pretty minimal. haha. I’ll be sure to purchase only vegan, cruelty-free skin care products from now on. 🐰🐰🐰♥♥♥

Review: Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay

Here’s my review on Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay! I’ve been meaning to do a full review on this face mask for the longest time! So this is a bentonite clay mask. It’s very beneficial for acne, oily skin. I usually lean towards clay masks, since I have acne, oily skin. For the past months, I’ve been experimenting with different types of masks. Obviously, the ones that are meant for oily skin works the best for me. lol.

About this face mask…

Other statements on the container…

How to use?

  1. Mix clay with equal parts of raw apple cider vinegar and/or water
  2. Use a non-metal bowl and utensil
  3. Stir the mixture well to a smooth paste
  4. Add more clay or liquid as needed
  5. Apply 1/8 to 1/4 in. to the face or other area
  6. Let it dry for 5-10 min. for delicate skin, 15-20 min. for normal skin
  7. Remove clay by washing with warm water
  8. Slight redness of the skin is normal and will disappear in about 30 min.
  9. Removes impurities and dirt from the pores

This is what it looks like. Open container.

Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Powder
Green clay powder

The instructions states that the green powder can be mixed with raw apple cider vinegar. I haven’t tried it yet. I might in the near future. I’ve been mixing it with water. It works. 🙂 I mentioned in my last short review that this face mask was beneficial for my oily skin and acne. It is. My skin looks and feels less oily after using it. It helped dry up active pimples. It makes my skin feel nice afterwards every time I use it. It doesn’t dry my skin out at all. That’s quite a shocker because it removes excess oil and makes my skin feel tighter. It kind of reminds me of Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask — back in the days when it was very popular! Maybe it’s because they are both green. As for results, Aztec is way better than Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask. I never liked the minty smell of Queen Helene. I didn’t notice too much of a difference in my skin when using Queen Helene either, while with Aztec I do. There’s only ONE ingredient in Aztec. It is 100% Natural Calcium Bentonite (Green Clay). Queen Helene had a bunch of other ingredients besides bentonite from what I remember. There is a downside when it comes to using Aztec. Whenever I remove the mask off of my face, it doesn’t wash down the basin easily. It sticks to the side of the basin and floats around in chunks. BUT, that hasn’t stopped me from using this face mask. That’s just a heads up if you decide to try it out yourself. Overall, I enjoy it. My skin likes it. I use it 2 times a week after a facial steam. 🙂
