Spring Cleaning Skincare Empties!

It's that time of year again! Spring cleaning is among us. Out with the old and in with the new, BUT after cleaning out my skincare cabinets, I am going to be re-purchasing the following products ASAP! I also want to let you know that nothing in this blog post is sponsored.  I purchased all of the products mentioned below.

 

1.) ZO Gentle CleanserI rotate between a few cleansers, but this is my new fave, and I will be repurchasing.  It has a grapefruit smell that is so refreshing. The other fantastic feature that moved it to the top of my list is the fact that it can also remove your makeup.  Being a big fan of the double cleanse to ensure all your makeup is removed can become very tedious, but this along with the makeup removing fabric in SKINCHIES makes your routine so much for efficient. 

2.) ZO Complexion Pads: I struggle with hormonal acne and larger pores.  These feel and smell so amazing on my skin.  I notice such a HUGE difference in my skin when I do not use them.  My skin feels more congested and I have more breakouts without using these amazing little pads.  They keep my skin in check and are a great daily exfoliant.

3.). Origins Out of Trouble Face Mask:  The HOLY GRAIL of face masks for problem skin!  Every Time I have a breakout or just need a good skin detox I go to this mask.  They advertise it as a "10 minute Rescue Mask" and it does just that! It is an excellent post breakout mask as well.  It helps to heal post acne inflammation and marks quicker than anything I have used.  

4.) The Ordinary AHA PeelThis Glycolic and Lactic Acid combo helps to exfoliate your skin.  It does appear as if you have just smeared blood all over your face but the results are worth the Vampire Vibes.  I use this about 3 times per week.  It has really helped my melasma and hyperpigmentation as well as kept my acne at bay.  It is an excellent dupe for the Drunk Elephant Baby Facial (which I love as well-but I don't love the price tag.)

5.) Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Tinted Eye RollerI was so tired of waking up in the morning with dark under eyes that I was willing to try anything.  The expensive eye treatments did not work for me.  I tried this drugstore brand and was AMAZED!  I even used it when I went on a ski trip to Colorado and my under eyes were less puffy and brighter.  I use this every morning and it's

great under makeup or without makeup.  You will find it instantly brightens your under eyes almost like a concealer!  I am onto my third roller! 

 6.) EltaMD SPF 46 UV Clear Tinted Broad Spectrum SPF 46How can we not talk about Sunscreen when doing a skincare empties blog post in Florida?  I have tried MANY sunscreens.  This is the one I continue to re-purchase.  I love the protection I get as well as the slight tint it provides.  It feels very light and non-greasy on the skin.  The product also claims it protects sensitive skin types (ME!!) prone to discoloration (ME again!!!!)  and breakouts (ME for sure!!) associated to acne and rosacea. It contains niacinamide (vitamin B3), hyaluronic acid and lactic acid, ingredients that promote the appearance of healthy-looking skin. Very lightweight and silky, it may be worn with makeup or alone.

 

7.) EltaMD UV Lip Balm Broad-Spectrum SPF 36So often we forget about our luscious lips!  What I love about this lip sunscreen is that it is also SUPER hydrating.  It you have dry or chapped lips this stuff is AMAZING!  Very easy to apply and don't forgot to reapply!  Treat your lips as if you are kissing them. How is that for a visual? 

 

Thanks again for checking out the blog!  Don't forget.....SKINCHIES make great gifts including Easter Basket fillers for some BUNNY you love!
