My Updated Skin Care Routine

Leave a comment

It’s time for a skin care update! It’s been quite some time since I’ve posted anything about my skin care routine! Here we go! 🙂

When I wake up in the morning, I use Trader Joe’s Spa Face Wash with Tea Tree Oil. This face wash right here. I’m sure I’ve mentioned it several times before.

This is the best face wash I’ve used in my lifetime. It beats all of the other face washes I’ve used in the past! I highly recommend it if you have oily, acne-prone skin. It removes dirt and oil. It tames oily skin. Love!! By the way, it’s vegan. 😊😍 Even though I like it, I wouldn’t depend on it alone to get rid of acne. It’s good at doing what it’s supposed to do — cleanses without stripping essential oils from the face.

I am not using the Clarisonic Mia Prima Facial Brush any longer. It didn’t work out for me. What did work out for me is using Acne.org BP Treatment Gel! So I’m back to using Acne.org BP Treatment Gel. This right here:

I’ve used this stuff soo many times before. The first time I used it, it worked. I tried it again and again over the years with hits and misses. I decided to give it a go once again to see if it’ll work again. This time, I’m not just spot treating. I’m applying the gel to my whole face but only at night. The gel takes too long to absorb into my facial skin in the morning, and I don’t have time for that. It seems to be working! 😊 Ever since I started using the BP Treatment Gel, I’ve introduced jojoba oil back into my skin care routine.

But, I don’t use jojoba oil everyday. It’s only when my skin becomes dry from the BP. Once the dryness goes away, I stop using it. I can’t use it every day. I ended up with clogged pores. I love the way it makes my skin feel…but not everyone’s skin can tolerate it…

Lily Ana Naturals Retinol Cream

For an eye cream, I use LilyAna Naturals Retinol Cream. I haven’t introduced this skin care product yet. I’ll talk more about it later on. Yes, it’s a vegan skin care product. I’ve been trying my best to purchase only vegan skin care products. At the moment, all of my skin care products ARE VEGAN!

I don’t have a sunblock at the moment. SHAME ON ME!! ha! By the way, I was using Differin Oil-Control Moisturizer with SPF 30. It turns out the Differin sunblock was breaking me out. My skin is prone to acne, and it’s better for me to use less products on my skin (this includes makeup too). You will see later on when I talk about my makeup routine.

So, that’s all I really use on my facial skin. I stopped using a lot of skin care products because they weren’t doing any good to my skin. I try my best to stay out of the sun. I don’t think sunblock was really protecting my skin anyways. My skin has been forming freckles for the past years with sunblock on + staying out of the sun most of the time. No joke, lol. I don’t think that’s an entirely a bad thing, since I’ve recieved tons of compliments on them. In the meantime, I’ll be on the look out for a good sunblock and do my best to stay out of the sun.

That is my skin care routine. Tell me about yours! Next up, my new eye cream and my makeup routine. 😊

Love, Jen

A Review on LilyAna Naturals Eye Cream Moisturizer
A Review on LilyAna Naturals Eye Cream Moisturizer

Here’s my review on LilyAna Naturals Eye Cream Moisturizer! I’ve used it for at least a month already! So I stumbled upon this eye cream when I was searching for an eye cream that was more natural and vegan. Also, this eye cream has tons of good reviews on it. I thought I would give it a chance after pondering about it for some time. I decided to go for it, since my last eye cream was just OK. I wanted something more. Even though wrinkles can’t be totally eliminated, it never worked to decrease the darkness of my under eye circles. I have really bad under eye circles. I could always go back to my previous eye cream if LilyAna Naturals Eye Cream Moisturizer didn’t work. But, it’s been one month in, and I’m happy about the results! This eye cream is soft and cream-like. It absorbs into the skin easily without leaving any grease behind. It’s not the most moisturizing eye cream, but it doesn’t dry out the skin either. I do wish it was more moisturizing. Finding an eye cream that lightens dark under eye circles just a little bit is difficult to come by. This eye cream did help to fade my dark under eye circles just a little bit. I’m very happy about that! That’s better than nothing! On the bottle, it says that you can use it as a face cream too. I tried it. It didn’t work for me. It clogged my pores and wasn’t moisturizing at all. I prefer it only as an eye cream. So far, it’s going well. I hope it continues this way!
