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

Well, it’s not so new to me anymore. 😉 I’ve been using it for 1 month already! Here’s a brief introduction on this eye cream in this post. My last eye cream was Roc Retinol Correxion Eye Cream. I’ve used it for many, many years. I intended to keep using it if I couldn’t find something else to replace it. Check out my skin care routine to learn more about it! So, I did mention several times that I’m trying my best to move towards natural and vegan skin care products. Lucky me, I found something along those lines. It’s called LilyAna Naturals Eye Cream Moisturizer. It is 77% Organic (better than being zero) and vegan. It’s free of a bunch of nasty ingredients. The first few ingredients on the list are Organic Aloe Leaf Juice, Organic Coconut Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil, Vitamin E, and Sunflower Seed Oil. It has tons of good reviews. I thought, hey, let’s give it a try instead of returning to my old eye cream. Since it’s been a month of using LilyAna Naturals Eye Cream Moisturizer, did it work? A review coming up soon! Stick around!
