My Drugstore Skincare Routine

Hello again!

Today I am sharing with you all a few skincare products I’ve been using recently. Growing up and even into my early 20’s, skincare was never high on my priority list. Quite frankly, it was almost non-existent on my list. I always felt like I was too busy or too tired to fiddle around for 10-15 minutes with it. But, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized the importance of taking care of what I have. 10-15 minutes is such a teeny-tiny fraction of my day so, why shouldn’t I take the time to treat it with the respect that it deserves? Anyways, enough of my rambling already, lets jump on in!

Sheet masks: Oh boy! These have been one of my absolute favorite ways to pamper my skin lately. They’re like a traditional face mask but 10 times easier! I love that you don’t have to mess around with putting on a gooey paste only to spend your “pampering” time washing it off your hands. Then spending a ton of time trying to rinse it all off your face. By the end of that, I feel like I haven’t relaxed at all. With sheet masks you just throw one on your face, kick back, watch a couple YouTube videos then peel it off and you’re done! I’ve been doing one once a week now and I love them! I like to rotate types of masks as well as different brands just to get all the different benefits. This will be my first time trying the SOO AE brand so I am excited to try it!

St. Ive’s Blemish Control Scrub: I use to dread exfoliating my face. I have sensitive skin so exfoliating too much really irritated it and sent my skin into oil production over drive. But, I finally found that if I limit it to once a week instead of every few days, my skin does much, much better with it. Currently I am using this St. Ive’s scrub but I don’t love it. It does the job but I’ve been keeping my eye out for something better and just a tad bit more gentle. If any of you know of something I should try, let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear your suggestions!

Burt’s Bees Radiance Facial Cleanser: I love this stuff!  Its a super light weight, smooth and gentle cleanser with a gel like consistency that my skin loves. It works really well getting all my makeup off and getting down into my pores. I rarely need to use a toner to get all the excess dirt off my face after using this.

Target Brand Toner: I love this stuff too! It works to get any left over dirt off my face without drying it out. Since I started using this I noticed a huge difference in the texture of my skin. My pores are noticeably smaller and the redness in my face has been minimal. I have no idea why I never used a toner before because it truly has become such an essential for me now.

Target Brand Dual- Treatment moisturizer: I don’t love this as much as I wish that I did. I have to use quite a bit of it to fully moisturize my skin. Which, may not be the products fault as I do have pretty dry skin. But I guess my point is that I personally would prefer a heavier duty moisturizer so that I do not have to use as much. However, when I do put on the right amount, it does get the job done so I plan to finish out the bottle and then move on to something else. Again, any recommendations are great!

ToGo Spa Green Tea Eye Masks: I recently watched one of Aspyn Ovard’s YouTube videos where she mentioned these in her subscription box. I was super shocked that they even had such a thing! Knowing how much I love face masks, I really wanted to give these a try so I went on Amazon and purchase a 3 pk. I’ve only gotten to try them once since I just got them this week but so far, I love it! You stick them directly under your eyes and they stick to your skin. They slip down a little bit so I do recommend leaning your head back a little and relaxing but overall, they hold up pretty nicely! I plan on rotating these into my routine a couple times a week so I’m really excited to see if they help with the overall brightness of my under eyes.

 

That’s all the products I use for now! I can’t wait to start experimenting with new products to replace the ones I’m not totally in love with. And I’m excited and happy to keep using what I do love. I can only hope with all this skincare TLC, I look like Jennifer Aniston when I’m older. Ha ha.

See you all next week!
