Five minute friday skin care edition. I don't have great skin, never have, but I figure now that I'm in my 30's I better start to fork over some dough for the good stuff. I have a lot of sun spots, acne scars, etc that aren't going away on their own. I don't break out a lot, just the occasional pimple. Like I said, my biggest problem is evening out my complexion. Because we are visual creatures I took a picture of the products that I have been using recently and I like them and think they are working. I love to know what works before I spend my money, so if any of you care to know.....
Ambi- sold at drugstores/big retailers around $10. It has hydroquinone which is a lightener. Not ever where carries it and you really have to look for it, like on the bottom shelf. I think it is marketed towards black people, but it works for every one
Philosiphy- this was a gift so I can't tell you what it costs, but I know Philosphy will cost you a few pennies. Purity is great, but my FAVORITE is the microdelivery exfoliating wash. I keep it in the shower, LOVE IT!!!
Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector- I ordered the 1.7 oz for $59 off ebay to save a few bones, other wise I think it is about 69 at a department store. It works, just not as quickly as I would like it to.
Aveeno Positively Radiant light tint SPF 30- 14.95 at Wal-Mart. It's a moisturizer and foundation in one! And with the soy it supposedly evens skin tone too. Being 31 I need the daily spf of 30, I decided 15 was too low now and I'm too lazy/rushed to put on any foundation before I leave the house. Now with this, I can put it on, add a little blush and done. A little better than before! It is very light weight, and I don't recommend using your serums underneath, it didn't mesh well and the Aveeno kind of peeled/globbed up. So, use alone or wait until your serum completely dries before applying
Cleansing cloths- idk, $5? I always buy the generic brand, they all work the same to me. Again, I'm lazy and looking to cut a few minutes off the bed time rountine and they're super easy. I can wipe my face and done and I never feel dirty after using them.
