How Do You Treat Your Skin?

Just thought I would share what products are in my daily skincare routine:

I use  C. Booth Lemongrass Gel Cleanser with my Earth Therapeutics Complexion Brush.  In my opinion, this complexion brush is the best thing that ever happened to my face.  I got this as a very inexpensive alternative to a Clarisonic facial cleansing system.  I figured, it’s a brush right? I could try it and see what happens.  It truly cleans your face, clears your pores, and washes off all your makeup.  The brush is very soft and not harsh at all.  My face has a whole new life!  I started using Lemongrass Gel Cleanser after I couldn’t find my St. Ives Olive Oil Cleanser anymore 🙁

Next, I apply Boots Overnight Skin Cream.  I know it says overnight but I have used this for day as well.  It’s very light and smells fantastic (bergamot).  Incidentally, I only started using moisturizer about 2 years ago.  I had always had acne-prone, oily skin and just didn’t think I needed it.  Then after my second pregnancy, my skin just changed.  I got less pimples (yay!), but I started to see more signs of aging (boo!).  That’s what sparked my current skin care regimen.  Also, I have not used a toner in a long while.  I haven’t found one that meshes with my skin nowadays.  I may look for one in the future, you just never know.

Last, I apply Boots Lip Salve which has a lovely rose scent and moisturizes oh so well!

About every other day I use Aveeno Skin Brightening Daily Scrub for exfoliating:

About once a week I use C. Booth Deep Cleansing Volcanic Mud Mask.  This can also be used as a spot treatment on a pimple:

Right now I am in hot pursuit of an effective anti-aging cream and an eye cream.  I will be reviewing some of the items I have been trying and let you know how it’s going!

    Do you find that the boots skin cream clogs your pores? I started using it a bit ago, and I really like how my skin feels afterward however I’ve mysteriously broken out quite a lot since then.

      You know, that was the beauty of this cream for me, I did not break out at all. It is so light on my face, such a nice change from other moisturizers that I had tried.
