We all search for the best products for our skin, and sometimes it can get overwhelming.
Everyone has different skin types, so asking advice from others may not work for you. But I wanted to share a few products that I think will work for just a general refresh of the face.
Since becoming a mom, my personal maintenance has gone down. I have less time to focus on myself, and spend more of it on my child. But I decided to change that this year. So I started with my face. The lack of sleep, everyday activities, and added stress can be harmful to your skin. It was time for me to freshen up my face, make it look brighter, and overall just give it the care that it needed.
Let’s dive into the products I’ve tried and come to love. And these are reasonable priced, for those who don’t want to spend much. But they have great quality.
Biore Activated Charcoal wash:
I found this in Ulta, but I believe you can also find it in Walmart, Target, and Amazon.
Here are the amazon links for the Biore products if you’d like to get them now!
I love this stuff. I have been using it for a few weeks now.
The activated charcoal trend recently came out in 2018. I was never interested until I received a charcoal face mask in BOXYXHARM subscription box. That is when I decided I wanted a face wash that contained a similar ingredient. So, I did some research on how the activated charcoal benefitted skin and found this:
Biore Activated Charcoal Strips
So far these have helped keep the blackheads away. Blackheads tend to congregate on my nose, but these help strip some of the dirt out. These are good to use after the face wash, that way you can get the remaining dirt on your face and get the deep clean.
Activated charcoal draws out bacteria, chemicals, dirt, and other micro-particles to the surface of the skin. That process helps you fight acne and gives you an enhanced complexion. So in hindsight, this is something I was looking for. A simple wash to brighten up my face.
We all know that exfoliation is good for our skin. I bought a simple, non-battery operated brush to get that extra clean feeling. It also helps scrape away any dirt. You can find one that best fits your needs. But I definitely recommend you get one.
Cosmedix Activated Charcoal Detox Mask
I got this mask with one of the beauty subscriptions I have. It’s called Boxycharm. It is what inspired me to try out activated charcoal products. This mask is great! I’ve only used it a few times, but I love how clean it makes my skin feel and look. It works best after you have washed your face.
