I don't really post very often but I always read posts and get great tips and advice so thought I would share one of mine. I was searching everywhere for a gentle cleanser that would remove my make up, I don't like double cleansing with make up remover and a cleanser when my skin is really bad I feel like it just irritates it.. I had bought Dan's cleanser by I was waiting on it being delivered. Anyways, I came across Clean and Clear truly gentle facial wash. From what I can see it's sulphate/soap free, no doubt there are some bad ingredients in it somewhere (aren't there always), but it seems to take my make up off ( I don't wear a lot though) and so far has been pretty gentle to my skin..I've even noticed some dry patches healing up a bit, and it goes well with the Differin I've been using afterwards. I got it in Morrisons supermarket and it was really cheap...I'll keep you posted if anything changes though. For the first time in ages I have a simple routine, this face wash, differin at night and olay day fluid (with spf) to moisturise in the morning.
Cleanse: Boots No 7 Cream Cleanser for Normal/Dry Skin ( removing with some warm water and a tissue) or Priori Gentle AHA Cleanser (every few days)
Moisturise: Estee Lauder day cream spf 15 or Aveene light moisturising lotion (oil free) spf 20
Topicals: Vitage protect and perfect serum, after I moisturise now that it's coming into fall and winter
Cleanse: Boots No 7 Cream Cleanser for Normal/Dry Skin (remove with some warm water and a tissue or a damp warm wash cloth for days when I'm wearing a lot of make up) or Priori AHA Gentle Cleanser. Sometimes I will double cleanse with my cream cleanse then aha milk cleanser maybe twice a week
Moisturise: Estee Lauder day cream or e45 cream or liz earl gentle moisturiser
Topicals: Differn 0.1% before or after moisturiser
One clay face mask a week/every two weeks
Oral medication: Dianette BCP now Cilest
Supplements: Altrient B multi B vitamin lipo soluble gel formula, mix one a day with water
Current make up: Liz Earle Signature Foundation, NARS creamy concealer, Dollish CC cream for days when I don't want to wear foundation. For some colour I use tea to tan By Terry, it's water base tint to give me some colour and various cream and powder blushes (love my blushes) currently loving Charlotte Tilbury beach sticks, lovely cream blush and bronze highlighters.
