Do you ever learn something and then some where along the line talk yourself out of it or forget you learned altogether…then sometime at a later date relearn it all over again like its brand new information?
Or is that just me?
I started cleaning my skin with oil over two years ago. I fell in love, sang it’s praises and loved my skin.
Then I stopped.
I’m pretty sure that’s just because I was testing out new products and the whole oil thing just got away from me.
Well, this summer/fall has been a killer on my skin it’s been so dehydrated and prone to blemishes and blackheads. I guess it took that for me to remember to stop stripping with soap every night.
I decided to try a cleansing balm this time that a friend recommended.
And I need to warn you first it’s another splurge. I really hate to drop two splurges on you in two days because you all know how I feel about saving you $$ but… it’s the skin on your face. You wear it every day and it has to last you your whole life it’s not the worst thing to splurge on, right? And also, it’s a large amount and you don’t need to use much at each wash so it will last you.
Here’s the lowdown:
How I use it: I place the balm between your hands and rub it together (which makes it melt into an oil) then I massage it all over my face. Next (and this isn’t in the directions, it’s just my way) I use the Luna Mini to further massage it in (before I got the mini I used the Clarisonic & it worked as well) then I take a muslin cloth (it comes with the balm) and run warm water over it then wipe my face with it. Next I massage in the Sheer Renewal Cream.
Why I love it:
- Results. My skin is looking better than ever!
- I loooooove the way it feels. I actually get excited to wash my face. True story. I used to dread it like it was some big terrible job (which is a little dramatic and…lazy…but true) and now I genuinely look forward to it.
- I worried it would leave an oily or waxy residue on my skin (like other oil type cleansers have in the past) and it definitely does not.
- It also takes all of my makeup off, which is so nice! Only one step.
- I finally feel HYDRATED! YAY!
Also, I have a couple of questions (because skin care can be so different case by case) have any of you with oily skin used cleansing balms and loved them? Also have any of you found a budget friendly cleansing balm you love?
Have such a good day!
Just a quick note to clarify for those who read yesterday’s post and are wondering. My skin started to improve a lot after I began to use this cleanser & hydrator. Then a couple months later I replaced the Clarisonic with the Luna and saw even better results. So I think that both things were instrumental in my improved skin situation:)
