Hope all is well and you had a great start to the week. So you must all be tired of hearing about my acne, right? Hahahaha. Sorry but I can't help it! My bumps have literally taken over my life. Since getting bad breakouts, skincare and makeup has taken over my life at a whole new level. I don't think people realize how badly your confidence can take a hit when your face is covered in acne.
My skincare routine has been really intense over the last few months. I had to really learn the hard way that if you love makeup as much as I do that you really must make sure they you completely take off every speck of makeup before you go to bed.
Since I wear heavy makeup every single day and I contour like a Kardashian, it's super important that I remove every lick of makeup from my face or my pores will get blocked like you would not believe. My skincare routine is a bit intense and I'm happy to share if you want me to, but here's step one of my nighttime skincare routine...
You must...I repeat... you MUST double cleanse your skin if you wear loads of makeup like I do! I just don't go to my sink wearing loads of makeup and reaching for my cleanser like I am going to get away with just one wash. In order for my cleanser to really work, I must remove the majority of makeup first so the cleanser can actually reach my skin. I use two products in order to reach my cleansing goal....a cleansing oil and makeup removing wipes. My personal faves are BareMinerals Oil Obsessed Total Cleansing Oil and Avon's Makeup Removing Wipes or Yes to Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Wipes.
BareMinerals Cleansing Oil has been a miracle worker!! I can't gush about this product enough and I have repurchased it 3x already. It smells amazing, is super gentle, and removes pretty much every single bit of my makeup with just one application. In my opinion, no one should be with out this product, especially if you love makeup as much as I do....I apply it directly to my dry skin, rub it in, and wipe away with my makeup removing wipes. My skin feels soooo amazing afterwards!! This oil removes everything, including eye makeup!! It removes all makeup without drying my skin which I really appreciate! This cleanser has been a game changer for me.
For the past year, I have talked non-stop about my Avon makeup removing wipes. They are so moist and effective that I just have them automatically on repeat. They are also soooo cheap compared to other brands!! But of course I am always trying out new products and once I saw these detox wipes at Target, I had to try. I know that charcoal is supposed to be really great at detoxing your skin. I was really shocked when it turned out that I liked them.. a lot!
First off, they smell amazing!! So clean but flowery! I was a little hesitant because I thought a black wipe? Is it going to leave residue? Nope! Absolutely not! They leave my skin sooo soft and smooth. They aren't as moist as my Avon wipes and they clean my makeup brushes horribly but they really are amazing to my skin. Just because I can use my Avon wipes for multiple purposes, I'll continue to stay loyal, but these were a refreshing change.
After I clean my skin with both these products, my skin is 100% ready for part two of my skincare routine which is to cleanse. If you suffer from acne like I do, you need to add a cleansing oil to your skincare routine and make sure you double cleanse!!
How to you wipe away your makeup?
