Purify Your Skin With Oil

I’ve always been a big fan of Philosophy, so when I needed a new facial cleanser I looked to them for guidance. I was really needing something that remove eye make-up. They recommended their Purity Made Simple Mineral Oil-Free facial cleanser. I was a little skeptical. I have oily skin and couldn’t imagine washing my skin with, well, oil. But to my surprise, it works very well.
This facial cleansing oil is made without mineral oil and instead uses a blend of natural oils that melt away all traces of make up, dirt, oil, and impurities. It comfortably cleanses my skin while maintaining my natural moisture levels. It rinses off completely, leaving my skin feeling fresh, hydrated and not greasy. And the eye make up is bye-bye.
The facial oil is super easy to use. Squirt a tiny amount into hand and massage on DRY skin for a couple of minutes. Add a few drops of water, massage for a brief interval and then rinse with water. It doesn’t seem like it could possibly get rid of all the day’s gunk, but my cotton ball is clean after applying toner. And it has a very pleasant lemon scent, which just adds to is fabulousness.

This just may be my new favorite product. It is great for all skin types, easy to use, and pretty affordable.

Clear Pores With Charcoal

I’m a big bath taker. I can spend hours reading and relaxing, but it’s also when I do my more luxurious beauty rituals-like masks. Masks are one of those products we often forget about, but are also one of the products most beneficial to our skin. They can hydrate, exfoliate, oxygenate, and clear out those pores. One of my favorites is Origins Clear Improvement. This mask contains activated charcoal which acts as a magnet to draw out deep-dwelling pore-cloggers. White China Clay absorbs environmental toxins while Lecithin dissolves impurities like dirt and other debris. I use it (or try to) once a week during bath time. I put a warm, moist towel on my face for a few minutes and then apply the mask. Now, don’t be afraid of the charcoal black color, it won’t stain anything. Relax as it dries and then rinse off. You’ll be left with skin that glows and has new clarity, and pores that are smaller and clearer. And I know most of you will say you’re too busy, but come on, you deserve it!

Origins Clear Improvement $22 (for all skin types)
