My Current Skincare Products

After posting my Skincare video on YouTube like 4 months ago, I've been asked if it's changed since then. It has, because I added a few new products since I have become addicted to Lush cosmetics LOL. So here's what I use:

I have been using my Clarisonic brush since December of 2008 and it's still in great condition! I only change the brush head every 3-4 months. It's a great investment and will last you a really long time. You can use this with any cleanser and it gets rid of makeup, dirt and oil that your hands would not be able to clean off while cleansing. I suggest using this only 2-3 times a week though. If you use this everyday, your skin can become raw and too sensitive. Clarisonic has come out with variations of this product since the original release. My boyfriend got me this for Christmas and he purchased it at Nordstroms.

I normally use Cetaphil daily moisturizer, but I noticed that when the weather is getting "warmer", my skin tends to get oilier. I had a coupon for Lush one day and decided to try out their skin products. Lush Vanishing Cream is what the sales associate recommended based on my skin concerns and it has helped with oil control. It has a matte feel when applied after cleansing and keeps my cheeks moisturized. You don't need to apply much, a little goes a long way. It has a faint lavender scent and I like it. The only thing I don't like is the price, $37.50! So far, this is a so-so product for me.

Lush Dark Angels cleanser has got to be my favorite, for the use of exfoliating. It smells like black licorice, which I don't mind, but I love the feel of this. The sugar in this is fine and not at all abrasive. This cleanser is used to control oil and blackheads. I use this every other 3 days at night time. My skin feels absolutely smooth after rinsing, and I feel that I don't need to put moisturizer afterwards because it's not at all drying.

Lush Herbalism cleanser is for use on Oily and Acne prone skin. I've been using this more recently and it's been ok so far. I'm not a fan of the smell and I can't really describe it either. But I have noticed my skin clearing up a little bit since using this. It isn't really exfoliating, but when you apply it, it feels a little pasty and gritty at the same time, like floam. Just like the Dark Angels, it does leave your skin moisturized enough that you wouldn't have to use a moisturizer afterwards. I use this as a night time cleanser as well if I'm not using Dark Angels.

I still use my Biore Blemish Fighting Ice Cleanser! I especially use this with my Clarisonic and in the AM. It has a nice cooling effect when applied, but it can be a bit drying so a moisturizer is a must after use. This was highly recommended by my dermatologist and it has helped with the reduction of my blemishes. I've been using this product since September 2008. This can be found at any drugstore for about $6.
