Going back to school can be a very trying time. When school starts getting stressful the last thing you want is to be dealing with an annoying break out. This is how I keep my skin under control during school. I like to keep things easy with four simple products that you can find at any drugstore. Remember these are my honest opinions, I do not get paid by any of the brands that I talk about.
1.) Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal Face Mask ($17 Sephora). If you have never used a charcoal mask they really clear the skin. This one helps pull the dirt from inside the pores to the surface and add a nice healthy glow to the skin. I use this when I’m writing papers or know I will be just having a nice relaxing night in. Either way I always feel so much more relaxed while wearing this mask.
2.) Cetaphil Oil Control Foaming Wash ($10 Traget). I have been using this wash since I was fifteen and I can not stop raving about it. Every time I get asked what I use to make my skin clear I always say Cetaphil or Neutrogena. I use this wash every other day and on nights I need a little extra oil reduction.
3. Neutrogena Acne Wash ($7 Target) is a total life saver! If I ever have a break out this is the first product I reach for. This makes any pimples go away in the shortest amount of time. I also have an issue with oil and this really helps make me feel less oily through out the day. This product I use every morning and evening and could never leave for a vacation without it.
4.)Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Moisturizer ($20 at Ulta Beauty). Some may use this as a all over moisturizer but since I have combination skin which at this point right now has been way more oily then it has been in a long time. I like to just use this on my under eye area which add a brightening effect under my makeup but also makes me feel more awake. In the picture above is a sample size which I have been using for a while now. For me if I use a little amount
I wanted to start with this bag just because my makeup collection is so large I can only take a small amount of products with me. I recently picked this bag up from a store called Dazzle Up and is designed by N Girl . (I don’t get money from any store that I talk about as I just started writing. These are my honest opinions of these products.) What I liked about this bag at first glance was the design. Once I was putting actual products into it I noticed that it holds so much stuff! Needless to say I was so excited!
I have only picked a few of my favorite makeup products to put into this post. I wanted to make sure I was able to give a reasonable review or thoughts about each products. So the first one is my trusty Maybelline Fit Me foundation in 125. I have been using this foundation for years! Every time I try a new foundation this is my safety blanket I get it just in case I don’t like the new one that am testing. I love the lightness of the formula which is low to build able coverage. It feels like I’m not putting anything on. I like this because I don’t breakout much so I don’t feel the need to cover my skin up with much of anything. I’m always trying new stuff but I think this will be my backup for a long time.
I have really sensitive eyes and I prefer to use a liquid liner on my top lash line and this Maybelline Eye Studio gel liner on my waterline. It took me a long time to find a type of liner that would not make my eyes itchy or watery. This liner does it for me! It’s easy to apply, it stays on, you should try it!
The holy grail of mascaras! I can not tell you enough try this mascara if you ever get the chance! It makes lashes look long and bold. The wand in this mascara is curved to fit the natural curve of the lashes. It’s been a go to product for me since I started wearing makeup years ago, but when it’s this good its hard to part with it. I try to always have one in my makeup bag.
I feel like this is one of the most talked about bronzes of all time. But to be honest it is pretty good and I love the texture and blend ability. It comes with a little bronzing brush but to be honest I never used it. They also have a lighter version called Hoola Light but I have not seen what that actually looks like recently enough to tell you what it looks like. But I love this bronzer and it has really helped me keep a bronzed glow even though I’ve been out of the sun all summer long.
What are some new products I should try?
