I know its been a while since I have given a skincare update.  Unfortunately this process takes a while for me because I don’t want to do too much too fast and I want to see if the product actually works with real results! You can read the start of my skincare journey here.

So lets just jump right in.

Since my last post I have added a few items and removed some. Lets start with one I removed. The Olay Regenerist Serum and let me tell you this was hard to swallow. I have been using this for 10 years and I am loyal to Olay. However I took it out for a few weeks and when I put it back in my skin became red again and gave me bumps on my forehead. I have no clue what is causing it but one thing I have discovered is products with parabens do NOT like my skin right now. Does this mean I would not recommend this anti aging superhero? NO WAY! This serum is affordable and works to give your skin a smoother younger appearance. I truly do hope to use it again some day.

The next two products I put into my regimen and I am LOVING THEM.  Lets start with the LaRoche Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel Cleanser for Oily Sensitive Skin. A coworker gave me a sample she had from visiting Paris. I am beyond thrilled its sold at Target because I purchased the full size as soon as I finished it! My skin does not feel dry after cleansing and gives a very clean feeling as well.

I was in desperate need of a day cream as the Ponds Crema S cream was making me too oily and now I know also caused redness. Again has parabens in it. I use to use Origins a few years back but as you all know I am always on the hunt for afforadable options.  However I felt it was time to give them a go again. My skin is loving the Plantscription Power Anti Again Cream. No redness and my skin looks smoother and more vibrant since using this cream. I am hoping to try more from this line that is how impressed I am.

Last and certainly not least.  The game changer in my opinion. The Thayers Witch Hazel Rose Petal Alcohol Free Toner. This toner has helped clear my skin, reduce my redness, pores and gave my skin a brighter appearance.  Best part?? Its less than $10 on Amazon.
