Second Cleansers Inventory 2019

Beauty Inventory | Second Cleansers

Same as last year, I have 4, but this time a different set of products. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser I bought this last year after I had CO2 Laser Resurfacing done. I needed something I was sure won’t irritate and strip my skin of moisture. Alba Botanica AcneDote Deep Pore Wash This is a gel-type cleanser with 2% Salicylic Acid. It’s not as drying as I thought it would be. I use this several days before and during my period to preempt and address any zit that might erupt. Jason Super-C Cleanser It’s a non-drying gel-type cleanser and smells overwhelmingly…

Makeup Remover Inventory 2019

Beauty Inventory | Makeup Removers

I will spend every day of June taking an inventory of the beauty products I own by category. Exciting! I did this on Instagram last year, but I thought of also blogging about it this time to get me back into writing. Let’s kick this off with makeup removers.

I am sure it’s because I have several makeup removers open simultaneously, I don’t wear a lot of makeup,…

Before we had water filter installed, I used to apply one layer with a cotton pad first because water in our residence building leaves rusty brown watermarks on the dish drain. I like to imagine I was wiping rust off my face. Then…

Pixi Glow Tonic-Soaked Gauze

DIY Glycolic Acid 5% Peel with Pixi Glow Tonic

I’ve always avoided Glycolic Acid due to a bad breakout I experienced almost a decade ago from Neostrata 10% Glycolic Acid and Derma E Glycolic Acid Cleanser and Toner. I thought I’d give th active another shot when I started using The Ordinary Peeling Solution and realized that it had glycolic acid, but didn’t break me out. I also didn’t experience any untoward reaction from several Glycolic Acid Facial sessions with Aesthetic Science Clinic. Maybe the key to not breaking out, at least with my skin, is to rinse off glycolic acid after a few minutes. 🤷 This is what the RN/esthetician…
