Hey Guys! Last week I shared the imporatance of -How to clean your makeup brushes- and why it is better for your skin. So, I was thinking maybe I should share my favorite skincare products and how I keep a clean and clear face. I wear a ton of makeup. By a ton, I mean sometimes too much. The key to having your makeup look flawless isn’t how expensive your products are or how “amazing” your coverup is. It is how you clean and care for your skin that really makes the difference! I have a pretty detailed routine that I do on a daily/weekly basis to make sure I maintain youthful skin and a healthy glow.
Before I get into my physotic skin regimen, let me tell you the most important tip. DON’T GO TO BED WITH MAKEUP ON. Because you will get pregnant, and die!! Just don’t do it, OKAY?! (Alright, I’m being a little dramatic, you’re not going to die. But I had to reference Mean Girls in here to emphasize my point. And if you don’t know the reference I just made, I’m sorry but we can’t be friends). This is the most important step EVER. I know it is hard and sometimes you forget but this is crucial to having healthy skin. Leaving your makeup on all day is one thing but then to sleep with it is a completely different story. Makeup WILL clog your pores and if you are not cleansing and removing it daily, you will develop acne and those little bumps that are so hard to remove. Sleeping with makeup on also leads to premature aging which is exactly what we are trying to prevent!
Okay, I’m done blabbing- lets get to the products! There are 8 products pictured above but I am going to tell you about 6 of them that have been included in my dialy routine the past couple of months.
1. Neutrogena Makeup Remover Night Calming Towelettes.
These may not work for everyone but I love them. I’ve tried so many different makeup wipes and they usually all leave some residue or coating on my skin that I can’t stand. This is the first step I do while removing my makeup.
2. Kueshi Revitalizing Face Toner.
To be honest, this isn’t what I usually use. I mostly use my Aveda Toner or Sea Breeze but I tried this and loved it. It came in my Glossybox and I love trying new things so I had to use it. This product has a really nice smell but more importantly it makes me feel really clean after I have used it. Not everyone needs to use a toner, though. If you have dry skin, you should not be using them. If you have combo/oily skin you can because it will balance out your pH levels and bring down that oily complexion. I only use this in the summer because that is the only time I am oily. I use it directly after I have wiped my skin with my remover wipes.
3. Clearista Retexturizing Gel.
This little guy is too good. It says it is a gel but its more of a scrub/exfoliant. (At least that’s what I use it for). I use this at night every other day to remove any dead skin. I rub this product in circular motions around my entire face and rinse with cool water. It definitely removes a lot of the imperfections on my face and I notice the difference almost instantly.
4. Etre Belle Cosmetics Aloe Vera Ultra Moisturizing Gel.
This is a MUST for me during this summer. It is a really lightweight, oil-free hydrator. Not only is it extremely soothing on my face but it creates a glow that I am loving for summer! I don’t even want to wear makeup after I use it. I have been using it every night after I exfoliate.
5. Lancer Skincare Eye Lifting Cream.
Can we just get an hallelujah to this Botox in lotion form? I certainly don’t have wrinkles but I do notice some lines/crow’s feet starting in the outer corners of my eyes. When I use this product every morning, I swear my skin becomes tighter and they go away. I assume it is temporary and doesn’t have long-lasting effects but it definitely works which is probably the reason it is so expensive. I use it in the morning and night in hopes of it having lasting effects!(LOL!).
6. Glamglow Powermud.
I have such a strong love for glamglow products. These products just make my entire life so much easier. I use glamglow twice per month, at most. I would totally use it more but it can get expensive to replace and they don’t give you much for your buck. I currently use the Youthmud, Powermud, and Supermud and I alternate between the three. They all truly do completely different things. I chose the Powermud for this post because it really helps remove oils, weekly buildup, and any left over makeup. I feel like a new woman once it comes off. I promise, you will not be disappointed.
I hope you found this post helpful. What works for me, may not work for you! It’s all about trial and error and I have finally found products to make my skin feel flawless! If you use any of these products, let me know how you like them!

3 of these products were from my GlossyBox. Every month I recieve a Box of 5-6 beauty products. This is similar to Birchbox and Ipsy Bag if you have heard of those. I have tried all three and my favorite is definitely GlossyBox. It’s $21 per month and I get the most amazing products to try out! What you get is SO worth the money. Check out GlossyBox HERE !!!
