My Current Beauty Products

Sunday, April 18, 2021

To preface this, I have always struggled with pretty bad acne. It took me a long time to find products that worked with my skin without causing more acne. I also see a dermatologist regularly to help manage this and she is wonderful. I did not picture the prescription retinol that I use since it is a prescription and not everyone's skin reacts to retinol well. Everyone's skin is different so some of these may or may not work for you, but I hope you enjoy my favorites!

I LOVE this face wash so much. My husband found it via Instagram a few years ago and really made a difference with my acne. I have used it for years both morning and night. 

Another product I have used for years. I like it because it helps with my post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation as well as helping to prevent more acne.

This one is slightly new to me. I bought it because my lotion was hard to get during the pandemic and I was hoping it would work similarly. It did not, but it actually works really well under my lotion to help prevent my skin from being a weird texture from the retinol.

4) Moisturizer: Sunday Riley Tidal
I have used this moisturizer for about 2 years (I think) now. I have tried to find cheaper substitutes because I honestly don't like how expensive it is, but have yet to find a good replacement (so if you have any recommendations let me know!). That being said, I love how well it works for me. It does not make my skin oily even when I wear a lot of makeup, and it keeps the texture really nice.

5) Sunscreen: Supergoop! Zinc Screen
I bought this on a whim when I ran out of my other sunscreen and am so far pretty happy with it. It has a little bit of tint which I like. It also has to be applied fairly carefully because it can pill up if you rub too hard.

6) Spot Treatment: Peace Out Salicylic Acid
Salicylic Acid has been the best spot treatment for my skin. The brand I used for the past year came in a pretty tiny bottle, so I wanted to try a different brand. I came across this one and so far love it. It is about the same price for 3x the product. Salicylic Acid spot treatments can be found pretty easily at the drug store too.

7) Face Mask (my current jar is the Barbie edition): Glam Glow SUPERMUD
This is another product that I have used for years. One jar lasts me months because I only use it about once a week or once every other week. It really makes a difference with improving my complexion. 

I JUST purchased this. When I ran out of my last deodorant, I ordered some mainly because I am obsessed with the color (haha). I love the scent and the fact that it is a reusable container. The scent is definitely not rose to me, but it still smells really good.

So I have to be honest about this shampoo, I like Head and Shoulders way better. I have used them for years and have not had any issues. I bought this as a fun 'treat yourself' thing. I love the bottle, it was super fun to try, and it works really well. However, Head and Shoulders works the same for me and is much more affordable.

10) Conditioner: Eva NYC Hair Mask
I think this is supposed to be more of a hair treatment or mask, however I have used it for a couple years as my regular conditioner and I love it.

Thanks for reading!
