Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser
Hasn't broken me out, but still doesn't prevent the occasional flare-up. Would definitely prefer it to be free of sulfates and parabens, so I've decided to switch to another, even gentler cleanser; overall I don't regret using Cetaphil, my skin was *much* worse before I picked it up. There are better cleansers though.
BH Cosmetics 10 Color Blush Palette
I dumped my former favorite e.l.f. blushes for these BH ones, they're fantastic. Super pigmented but still wearable with a knowing hand, and very affordable; the bright gold color in the bottom right corner could make for a stunning eyeshadow despite likely being intended as a bronzer (it's a little too glittery for that in my opinion)! I generally stick to the left side, having medium-light skin with olive undertones. These are gonna last me ages!
Tarte Brighter Days Highlighting Moisturizer
Basically just overpriced lotion packed with iridescent glitter. Not my personal style, and not especially hydrating. Thankfully this was given to me by a friend, I'd be more disappointed if I'd paid for it. Two stars for the adorable packaging and portability, and I appreciated that the scent wasn't overwhelming (kinda just smelled like sunscreen to me).
Thayers Unscented Witch Hazel W/Organic Aloe Vera (Alcohol-Free)
This toner is the *perfect* PH (5.5) for skin prone to fungal and/or cystic acne, but it seems to work perfectly for nearly everyone I've known regardless of skin type; personally, it has made a huge difference in clearing my skin and restoring a healthy acid mantle after years of battering my skin with harsh products in an attempt to clear it. Thayers has a truly quality product here, and I'll be a loyal customer as long as they're around. Couldn't recommend it more!
Freeman Feeling Beautiful Charcoal & Black Sugar Mask
I've loved this mask for years, it's Freeman's best by far! It's easy to go overboard with the scrubbing, but remember that any physical exfoliation (versus chemical exfoliation) can be incredibly damaging to the upper layers of the skin. If applied with slow, gentle circular motions and left on the skin, particularly after a warm shower to expand the pores and soften sebum, this stuff can work wonders. Highly recommend for combination skin; hasn't caused dry patches or made me break out once! :^)
Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay
Upon opening the jar, you'll find that this powder is very fine, and very prone to flying out everywhere. It tends not to mix very well with water alone, so I like to mix in a *tiny* amount of apple cider vinegar to help it all combine. Removal is a royal pain with your hands alone, so I like using a washcloth soaked in warm water to gently rub the dried clay away, following with a ten minute mask of raw honey to soothe any irritation and counteract the dryness. Immediately after rinsing the honey away and patting my face nearly-dry, I follow with Thayers unscented witch hazel toner (the aloe formula) and a gentle moisturizer packed with ceramides, resulting in super soft skin and visibly clear pores. Not to mention that a single container will last you *years*, even used weekly! I personally recommend limiting the use of this mask to **once weekly** if you have acne prone or sensitive skin; this is powerful stuff, trust me, once a week is enough to make a huge difference!
Freeman Feeling Beautiful Mint & Lemon Facial Clay Mask
This is my reliable mask and champion! I use it once every two days, it can make acne but a little dry on my face. but it's fine as long as it doesn't make a dry face dehydrated. but this is very suitable for those who have oily skin because it can control the oil on the face. likewise the same smell is mint and lemon. repurchased? YES
CosRX AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid
I'm on the fence. I love acids on my skin and any aid in skin turnover but for me I didn't really notice anything. Perhaps its just too gentle for my skin. I get thats its a daily treatment so its not going to be super strong but I thought the few white heads I was having on my forehead would improve and nothing changed. I used the whole bottle. I'm sad because I do really like some of their other products, especially sunscreen.
