Garden of Life Probiotics Women's Daily Care

I decided to add some probiotics into my supplement routine. I could just eat yogurt, but I’m not a fan of yogurt. I tried it. It’s bleh and gives me weird digestive issues. Ahem, gas problems. I’m cutting down on the dairy, and my body is feeling soooo much better! I will most likely eliminate it soon.

Here I have 2 bottles of Garden of Life Women’s Probiotics Daily Care.

Why did I choose this? I picked whatever I liked. 🙂

I started taking this last night. There’s 30 vegetarian capsules per box. One serving size is ONE capsule. I’m really excited for this. I’ll do a review on my new probiotics when I notice any changes. 🙂

How to use Micellar Cleansing Water

Derma E Vitamin C Micellar Cleansing Water

I’ve been using micellar water for 4 weeks. I really like it. It leaves my skin feeling clean. I’ve used it three different ways — as a leave-on, washing it off, and as a makeup remover.

As a leave-on:

The first 2 weeks, I left micellar water on my skin. What I would do is go through my cleansing routine then apply the cleansing water to my skin. The instructions states that the product can be left on the skin without rinsing. That’s exactly what I did for 2 weeks straight. I didn’t think much about it until I noticed that my skin looked somewhat irritated and dry. It was like, what is going on with my skin? I used it day and night. I decided to quit this method and follow the ‘wash off’ method.

Washing it off:

The next 1.5 weeks, I would take a cotton pad, dispense micellar water onto the cotton pad, and swipe it all over my face. After doing this, I would see debris on the cotton pad. I think that’s pretty normal. Next, I would follow up with my cleansing routine. So the micellar water is rinsed off. It’s not left on the skin. This method worked much better for me. My skin stopped feeling dry and irritated. But is it necessary to use micellar water like this anyways?? That’s why I started to use it as a makeup remover instead.

Makeup Remover:

The last couple of days of the 4th week, I used micellar water as a makeup remover. I used it as the last step of my makeup removal routine. It helps to remove the last traces of makeup, debris, oils, and dirt. Micellar water worked very well at removing my mascara. I’ve been having a hard time removing mascara with oils and balms. THIS worked!

I’m currently using Derma E Vitamin C Micellar Cleansing Water (as shown in the photo above). In my honest opinion, this micellar water makes my skin feel more dry than I expected. I’ll search for something less harsh next time. I think Derma E Vitamin C Micellar Cleansing Water is good only in the summer. I think it would dry my skin out even more during the winter.

From my experience, micellar water as a makeup remover was the best method. Do you use micellar water in your skin care routine?

Love, Jen
