I was tagged by Life with Lis to share my Top 10 skin care products! Thanks so much! I know Beauty By Krystal started the Skin Care Edition of the Top 10 Awards, which I think is a GREAT idea because like she said…just because these products work for me doesn’t mean they will work well for you! So it’s nice to see what everybody uses and maybe you’ll learn about a new product that could possibly benefit you!

A little about my skin before I share my favorite products…I have very sensitive acne-prone skin. My skin isn’t oily or dry but I have been struggling with acne since the age of 10. My acne improved about 80% after taking Accutane, but it should have improved 100%. So I still see my dermatologist on a regular basis.
CVS Gentle Skin Cleanser - My dermatologist recommend I use this, it is a very gentle cleanser (just as good as Cetaphil) but it doesn’t remove makeup easily so I only use it in the mornings or when I don’t have any makeup on.
Witch Hazel – This is a great cheap toner, it is a strong anti-oxidant and astringent and helps fight acne too. I use this morning and night.
Bare Minerals Purely Nourishing Moisturizer: Combination Skin – I use this moisturizer every morning and I like it a lot! My skin never feels dry.
Bare Minerals Purifying Facial Cleanser – This is a great cleanser, it removes ALL my makeup very well (even eye makeup, not waterproof though) and leaves my skin feeling soft!
Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant – I absolutely love this stuff!!! It’s very expensive but my friend Charisma won it and gave it to me, she’s the best! It’s a gentle rice-based exfoliator that leaves my skin smooth & has salicylic acid to help with acne.
Differin & Adaplene – These acne gels are prescription only but very essential for someone with acne so I had to include them!
CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion PM – My dermatologist recommend I use this every night, it is an excellent moisturizer and I would highly recommend it for any skin type.
Bare Minerals Skincare Firming Eye Treatment – This is restores firmness and reduces puffiness around the eye area. I only have the sample size and I like it but I don’t think I will be able to afford the full size. I’m currently looking into another anti-wrinkle cream.
CVS Purifying Mint Masque – I use this once a week, it feels really refreshing and helps to draw out impurities and shrinks pores.
CVS cleansing & makeup remover towelettes – These are a MUST to keep near your bedside! Say you feel asleep watching tv, and now you’re too lazy to get up and wash your face. Or maybe you had a little too much to drink one night and your boyfriend can easily remove your makeup for you with these! I love them.
Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Sunblock Lotion SPF 30 –I had to add this as the 11th product, probably the most important. My dermatologist recommended this as well, I pretty much stay out of the sun at all costs but if you’re going to be in the sun this is a MUST! You don’t want sun damage or early wrinkles!
If you have any questions about these products let me know and I’ll be happy to answer!
