Sorry again that it’s been a while! I’m still trying to get caught up on work but yet procrastination seems to be winning. Since the semester is winding down and my stress levels are rising, I have to take extra care of my skin to make sure that it’s clean and taken care of completely. I have dry, sensitive and acne prone skin (although my breakouts are minor, I hate them since the redness really shows). Above are the products I use and I’ll tell you how I use them!
I need to moisturize my face every morning and night, if I don’t I will end up regretting it. I picked up this Pacifica Dream Youth Face Cream from Ulta and I love it. It’s a thicker cream, so a little goes a long way. It feels so refreshing on the skin and smells amazing.
When I saw this Pacifica Quinoa Sensitive Face Wash, I immediately had to pick it up. I love the fact that it has anti-inflammatory support since I do struggle with redness, from my acne spots and just minor irritation. It makes my face feel super clean without drying it out or irritating it. Depending on how bad my skin is (or timing) I’ll use it on my Clarisonic or I’ll just use my hands, both work well but I do prefer the Clarisonic if my skin is really bad.
I love my Clarisonic Mia 2, and can you guys tell that blue is my favorite color? 😉 I got this a couple years ago from my amazing boyfriend Tyler for Christmas. It’s been a game changer. I use it once or twice a week, I can’t use it more than that since my skin is so sensitive. I want to try a different brush attachment to see if it would be gentler on my skin. It is kind of bulky, so I do wish I had one of their new ones but it works perfectly fine.
I clearly love Pacifica’s products too. This is their Cactus Water Micellar Cleansing Tonic. It removes stubborn makeup without needing to rinse it off afterwards, which I like. It also tones your skin which is also a plus for me. Annnnd it doesn’t dry out your skin like other toners do. I use this on a cotton round to remove my face makeup before going in with my Quiona face wash, just to remove any extra residue. Do not use this on your eyes though, it’s only meant to go on your face. (Coconut oil works wonders on removing eye makeup + coconut oil can help to strengthen and lengthen your lashes!)
I love masks and do them as much as I can. This is Pacifica’s Pore Refine Deep Detox Mask. It’s a really thin consistency and smells absolutely amazing. It doesn’t feel tight or rough on the skin. After my face is washed, I apply this and leave it on for 20 mins. (They recommend leaving it for 5-20 mins, so I do 20 so I get the full effect.) This mask definitely works and makes my skin feel so smooth and helps to reduce the weird texture I have on some spots of my face. I highly recommend it. I also tried their Youthful Skin Scrub and I loved that too, so I might just need to buy everything from their line. (Can you blame me?)
Then lastly, my favorite spot treatment! I’m sure you’ve heard of the old toothpaste on pimples trick, but that’s messy, can over dry the spot and is a pain, plus if anyone sees you, they might be concerned. I love love love this rollerball acne treatment from elf. It has witch hazel and tea tree oil in it to help reduce redness and dry out any problem areas. It says to apply it up to 3 times daily, don’t go overboard or you will have a dry patch. It’s also really convenient to just throw in your bag.
So that’s what I use to keep my skin in shape! My skin definitely isn’t perfect, very far from it, but using these products help me and my complexion.
