*SkIn CaRe*

7:21 PM

I could use a million different skin care products, and I usually only buy drug store products as high end ones are too much $ for this girl. I have pretty basic boring skin (which is a good thing I suppose) It is fair and not too sensitive so I don't have to be picky picky with what I try out. As usual I have way too many products that I find on sale and want to try so I have quite a lot to show, here are just a few that i regularly use.

 A few of these are repeats from previous blog posts but I will just quickly mention them
  
I found a few good sales at Shoppers Drug Mart and Olay was the culprit!I got like 3 or 4 different Olay products for around $4 each, it was a crazy good sale so I had to stock up.




(info from left to right)


-First item is Olay dual action cleanser + pore scrub-this is just a slight scrub so it is good for everyday use


 -Next is my new luv, this is the Body Shop Seaweed deep cleansing facial wash that i use with my "cheapo's Clarisonic" .Love this with the Toner after wards then the mattifying cream/gel moisturizer as well for  light moisture for your face, great for oily skin!




I am still liking the Clean & Clear make up removing wipes. Great price for how well they work, I usually get them for around $5.00 at Superstore




-The Loreal go clean 360 I had bought a few months ago and it was pretty pricey but lasted quite a long time. I used that almost everyday and it had a very pleasant apricot smell-way better then the St. Ives smell. The bottle is so empty that the picture didn't look very good close up =/

-Then if I ever am need a STRONG acne fighting product this is the one that will dry your skin right out!Clean & Clear Persa-gel 5, I believe I paid around $11.00 for this but it will last forever as I am lucky I don't have to use it very often. But this will dry out any spot you need to use it on. It's not a miracle worker but it really helps! If you have sensitive skin I wouldn't recommend this as it can leave my skin red where I have applied it if I used too much.


-I don't know if it is just me but I always loved the smell of Noxema and when I saw these Anti-Blemish Pads I picked them up. I think these are great for someone who just needs a quick wash on the face with out needing a sink or water... or if you are just feeling a little lazy ;) 




-Lastly I decided to give this Gariner Ultra-Lift (since I am getting Old and wrinkley =(  ) a shot, I think that Gariner is a really good affordable line for anyone who doesn't want to break the bank on products. I have been using this little tube for probably 2 months now,everyday and still have 3/4 left if not more. It doesn't do anything super magical but I would recommend it for a cheaper then the Olay version one.








And I don't actually use all of this everyday, this is just EVERYTHING that I have that I rotate and use random ones on different days, just depends what I feel like using that day =)



Does anyone ever use an aspirin mask? I think I was one of the couple ppl out there who had never heard of it before... in case you are the other person here is a quick blurb about it!

What you need:

Some Aloe Vera Gel (optional)






And good Old Aspirin



And lastly a couple (literally) a couple drops of HOT water!
I use a Styrofoam plate, put 2 or 3 aspirin's on it, put 2-4 drops of hot water,depending on how thick you want it.
Then a pump or so of Aloe. 
Then apply to face (this works as an scrub as well)
Only let sit for a couple minutes so it won't irritate your skin.
Why would anyone want to do this you ask?-that's what I thought til i tried it!Aspirin is  a form of Beta Hydroxy Acids or BHA’s.Are found in many skin creams and work by exfoliating the dull, dead layers of skin, revealing fresh new skin underneath. Over time, BHA’s can help clarify skin tone and promote healing of blemishes.
Excuse the ugly ass plate but I don't overly want to use my plates I eat off for something I wash my face with haha. So this is what it will look like : 
Looks pretty gross but it helps reduce redness and your face is crazy soft after!!





What do you use for skin care products? Anything you would recommend or huck in the garbage?
