My Skincare Routine

Products I Swear by:
Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cleanser La Roche-Posay

Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cleanser:
I suffer from oily skin and every cleanser I’ve used left my skin feeling dry and tight before I applied my other products. It stripped my skin of its natural oils and everything else with it. This foaming cleanser leaves your skin feeling fresh and clean without leaving your skin tight and uncomfortable.
How to use: Wet face with warm water, then pump two applications into the palm of your hand and massage into your face until desired. 

Effaclar Astringent La Roche-Posay

Effaclar Astringent:
Along with the cleanser, this particular toner targets oily skin and works in conjunction with the cleanser to prep your skin for the other layers. It evens your skin tone if you suffer from occasional redness. It does have a strong alcohol smell, but does not burn the skin.
How to use: Apply a small amount to a cotton ball and dab all over your face.

Effaclar Serum:
This is serum is made out of pure magic. In one treatment I noticed a difference in my skin. It tightens my pores and cuts my oiliness by 75%. It does burn when you first use it, but once your skin grows accustomed to it, it will stop. 

How to use: Apply 2-3 drops across the entire face. During the first week of use only use it every other day. 

Vichy LiftActiv 15% Pure Vitamin C Serum Brightening Skin Corrector with Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin E, 0.34 Fl. Oz.
Vichy LiftActiv 15% Pure Vitamin C Serum Brightening Skin Corrector with Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin E:
Your skin will drink this serum up! In unison with the La Roche serum, I use this in the morning. (You can’t use both serums in one routine because it cancels each others Ph out and it BURNS.) If I know I was in the sun all day, I will use this and it helps even out my skin tone. Before you use it, don’t smell it. It smells like rotten orange peels, but works wonders. 

How to use: Apply 2-3 drops and massage into the face.

Embryolisse Concentrated 24 Hour Miracle Cream, 1.0 Fluid Ounce:
My favorite skincare product in both of my regimens. Every moisturizer I’ve used has clogged my pores, given me breakouts, and made my skin feel goopy. This cream is lightweight. It absorbs into your skin without feeling oily (which is the problem I was trying to get rid of to begin with). A little goes a long way with this creme and it lasts forever.
How to use: Apply a small dab around different areas of the face and massage into your skin.

Minéral 89:
There is a reason this skincare product is on every best sellers list and even a part of Oprah’s bestsellers list. It IS that good. All of the ingredients are natural and it does not have any added ingredients that might not benefit your skin. 
How to use: Apply two pumps and gently massage into your skin without applying too much pressure.

Anthelios Sport Sunscreen La Roche-Posay

Anthelios Sport SPF 60 Sunscreen:
If you are like me and you live in a constant state of being burned from the sun, sunscreen is a must. Even if you hate it, like me. Most US sunscreen products smell all day and they are the enemy for oily skin suffers. This particular sunscreen doesn’t have any perfume to it and it absorbs into the skin and you barely notice it all day. It is a must for a Floridian like me. 
How to use: Apply to areas that will exposed to the sun’s rays. 

This is the hardest product that I use to find in the United States. In Paris it runs about €20.00 and on Amazon it runs about 50.00. I use it when my breakouts are at their worst because it is so small and expensive. The ingredients come from the sea and it works wonders. The next time I am in Europe I will buy more of these products to try. 
How to use: Apply a thin layer after your cleanser and toner
