EN: Today's post will be my beauty routine. Mine is not has interesting or complex as some beauty gurus out there due to many reasons but I'm not going to bore you with that now.
Below I will break it down for you the products that I use. Take note that I have normal to oily skin, I have a oily T-Zone, I still have acne/spots :( and blackheads on my nose.
So at the end of the day if I'm wearing any make up I will remove it using the Nivea Facial Cleaning Wipes with the help of the Nivea Pure & Natural Cleansing Lotion (I'm actually doing everything that I can to finish this bottle because I don't fancy this product that much) and then for the eyes I use a separate products, the Nivea Extra Gentle Eye Make Up Remover with a bit of cotton wool.
The next step will be to wash my face and for that I use the Nivea Refreshing Facial Wash Gel. It definitely refreshes my face in the sense that I no longer feel my face oily on my T-zone but I do admit that not always is the best product to deal with my blackheads on my nose. I initially use to wet my face and then apply the product on my face but now I do the opposite, I apply it on my face, rub it a bit and then I wet my hands and continue rubbing. Something that I need to buy is a little face brush to help me with this process.
After washing my face I apply the Nivea Light Moisturizing Day Cream, it is a good cream but I'm starting to feel like I need something more...I don't know, intense, hydrating or that helps me more with my oily T-zone.
I've been thinking of face serums lately but I have to investigate a bit more about that.
Occasionally I use these Vichy products from the Normaderm line. The Vichy Normaderm Tri-Activ Cleanser can be use as a exfoliating product or you can leave on your face for 5 minutes like a mask. I normally use this one when I need to do a bit more of deep cleaning, specially on my T-Zone because of the blackheads.
And then after I apply the toner that removes any type of oils on my face which sometimes it can be a bit harsh.
Then some extra bits. For the frequently spots on my face I'm now using the Clean & Clear Advantage Spot Treatment Gel but to tell you the truth I need something stronger. It's alright if you have small spots but if you have those bigger ones this is not enough.
And last but not least the Garnier Caffeine Eye Roll-On a product that I bought due to the hype at the time but I have yet to notice any differences on my dark-circles so again it's another product that I'm using in order to finish it.
Overall I'm O.K. with my current beauty regime but it's still far from perfect. Once these products are over I'm definitely trying different brands. Any suggestions?
