2014 Blogger Challenge: Skincare

*some links are affiliate links*

This post is going to be about my current skincare routine! I have a very basic routine when it comes to skincare and have just started to incorporate new products, such as oils and masks into my routine. I have been using the Ole Henriksen african red tea foaming cleanser as my face wash lately. It does a nice job at washing my face and helps wake me up in the morning when I am showering half asleep.  My current moisturizer is the clean & clear dual action moisturizer , which is great because it contains salicyclic acid to help treate and prevent acne, which we all know I don't have the best skin on the planet. Before I apply my moisturizer I have been using the Urban Decay B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Spray, which hydrates and preps skin for makeup. I love it and can't wait to buy a full size!
Some new additions to my skincare routine are masks and oils. I got the Tarte Maracuja oil and Boscia Clarifying Detox mask as part of the Sephora Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale. To be honest, I am not a huge fan of the Maracuja oil. I haven't noticed a huge difference in my skin from using it for the past for month or so. The mask, however, it pulling all the zits and pimples from underneath my skin out. I have had a lot of breakouts but I love how this mask feels on my face and how my skin feels after I use it. I tend to use the mask twice a week. Lastly, I use the toner once and a while to help remove and leftover makeup. It also makes my skin feel refreshed.

I hope you have enjoyed this post and stay tune for topic three of the 2014 Blogger Challenge!

  1. Good luck with your skincare routine. I admit, I'm probably not the best when it comes to keeping up with my skin care regime.
