Current Skin Care Routine
I absolutely LOVE LUSH COSMETICS! Lush is a company based out of Canada that sells fresh, handmade cosmetics and skincare. They have more of a focus on skin and bath items, but they have recently started to get into makeup/cosmetics. I’ve always loved their bath bombs and body soaps. The stores are awesome, you can go in and they just cut off a piece of soap for you at the size you want. I also love their solid shampoos (Karma Komba is my favorite) My favorite bath bomb is Sakura. The stores are very smelly (good smelly!), so it can be overwhelming. I’ve also ordered things online since I don’t have a store super close to me (about an hour away). Recently, I’ve been trying to go more natural with my skin care routine. I’ve used Proactiv for years, but I don’t think I really need it anymore.
After a horrible allergic reaction to toothpaste and later lip balm… I’ve been trying to use things geared towards sensitive skin. Lush’s Angels on Bare Skin cleanser and Eau Roma Water toner are awesome! I know I will use these for a very long time because I just love them. My skin is so soft after using this cleanser.
I also LOVE their face masks! The only downside is you have to buy them in a store. They are made with fresh ingredients and have a quicker expiration date. The last time I was there, I actually bought two so I could freeze one. This is my favorite mask.
I’ve also been using Cetaphil to wash my face. This cleanser does not foam (which is good for me because I think I am allergic to a foaming ingredient!). Now that I am used to it, I really like it.
I also use Neutrogena moisturizer. I’ve been using this dark circle treatment for awhile (I have hereditary dark circles) and I think it helps… ? I use the retinol serum in between my eyebrows and on smile lines. I’m paranoid about wrinkles! If I feel like I’m going to get a pimple, I still use my leftover 3rd step from my last Proactiv kit. It is a benzoyl peroxide lotion that works but bleaches all my towels. I switched over to white towels a long time ago!
What skin care items do you love? Are you good about removing your makeup every night? I am obsessed with going to bed with a clean face. I never forget!
