Hello my darlings!
How are you today? ♥
How are you today? ♥
I've been enjoying my busy week, and it's going to be my first payday soon. Which naturally means getting new nail art stuff, as I have a list of things I've been craving to get for a while now. I'm hoping that next week won't be this busy and all, so I could actually write daily instead of scheduling posts like I've done lately. It's all about getting my life schedule together and I'm sure next week it'll all be alright.
Today, I wanted to talk to you about some skincare products I've been loving lately.
I've never mentioned this much, but my skin tends to break out quite a bit, especially in the dry weather (winter, we're so not friends), when I'm stressed out or when I clean my makeup poorly. Also, I have a bad habit of touching my face too much once it starts breaking out, which naturally makes it worse.
Couple of weeks ago, the nice people of Reddville sent me some acne products for testing. I was pretty thrilled, as the stress of the spring has been quite a lot for my skin (especially the face).
The products I've been testing lately are Basiderm Oil Control Foam Wash and Basiderm Oil Control Moisturizer. Basiderm products are only available in pharmacies, and even though these two don't necessarily cure acne, they promise to help keep the skin clean moisturized throughout the day. Basiderm also has medical creams for acne, but so far I haven't needed to try those out.
So what's my verdict about the products?
I was pretty scared that the products would make my face dry out like many face washes and matte finish moisturizers do, but once I found the right time to use them (face wash after removing my makeup, and applying the moisturizer when I go to sleep), I haven't had a problem. I tried out putting the moisturizer under a matte finish foundation, but that didn't work out too well for my skin type.
I have a sensitive skin, so it's important to use right products for it. These don't seem too harsh on my skin, and I think I can say that these have made a little improvement on my skin so far. It feels cleaner and looks a little brighter. I can't say that any miracles have happened, but it certainly hasn't made anything worse. Obviously need to keep using these for a couple of months before my final word on them, but so far I'm liking them a lot. They don't have a strong scents to them, which is nice when you talk about products you put on your face.
Of course as with all skincare, I believe a good diet, enough exercise and lot of water are essentials no matter what products you decide to use. But these, I think, are worth trying if you have an oily skin. It probably couldn't hurt, right?
What are your trusted products for skincare? Let me know in the comments!
Now, I will stop my blabbering for today, and will be back tomorrow with another post. Stay tuned for that my darlings!
Have a lovely day ♥
