So recently I changed up my face care routine after getting a facial at the spa. Basically, my skin was burned due to a reaction to one of their products; best way to describe it is that I went through the stages of a sun burn. First day my face was red and burned to the touch,day two and three it was like sandpaper and day four my skin started peeling. Out of desperation, I reached for the Ponds to help soothe my skin and quickly my face was back to normal ( THANK GOD). Lets just say that was my first and last time getting a facial. So this is what led me too changing up my skin care routine.
I used to use Olay face lotion only in the morning, and use my prescription medicine at night after my shower. Well as of recently I started using Ponds cold cream cleanser in the morning and before I go to bed I use it just like any face lotion. I rub it all over my face and let it soak in. As stated on Ponds website it is “Unlike ordinary cleansers, POND’S® Cold Cream Cleanser is actually 50% moisturizer. It deep cleans and removes dirt and makeup, even stubborn waterproof mascara, while infusing your skin with vital moisture – all in one easy routine. For clean, soft and glowing skin, put your trust in a classic.” Ponds is:
- Dermatologist tested
- Suitable for sensitive skin
- Won’t clog pores
Two key ingredients are Mineral Oil – Effectively removes makeup from skin’s surface & Beeswax – A moisturizer known to prevent moisture from leaving the skin. So moral of the story is that this product will leave your skin looking very healthy. And you can find this product here http://www.ponds.com/product/detail/95877/cold-cream-cleanser-makeup-remover
The next step in getting a flawless looking face is the POREfessional Primer from Benefit Cosmetics. Its a professional balm that minimizes the appearance of pores. What it does: “Quickly minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines and help makeup stay put with this priming phenomenon. The silky and lightweight formula can be worn under makeup to create a smoother-than-smooth canvas or used throughout the day to mattify shine and touch up problem areas. It’s so translucent, no one will know you’re wearing anything!” Now I dont have big pores, but I wear this product in my T-zone because it prevents my face from getting oily through out the day when wearing makeup. It really does smooth out the skin to give it that airbrushed flawless look. The oil-free formula contains vitamin E, which is known to protect skin from free radicals.

The last Product I use is MAC’s Prep + Prime Fix +, it’s a lightweight, mineral rich finishing mist that refreshes the skin and finishes makeup. Helps create an even surface for a smooth makeup application. Now you can spray this before applying your makeup and after, I usually just spray it after to set the makeup, and sometimes I would spray it later on in the day to refresh my face.

With all three of these amazing products you too can have a flawless face! Since I started using all three of these products I haven’t had to reapply my makeup through out the day, or even dab off the excess oil. My face has been looking very healthy and soft. So if you are looking to change up your skin care routine than try these products!
