So it was suggested that I put my skincare routine up for scrutiny since I was so ruthless in my grading of my friends’ skincare routines. No problem, I’ve not nothing to hide!
Skin type: combination (slightly oily t-zone, normal cheeks), with hormonal breakout on chin. I also have skin sensitivity and tend to break out in hives randomly (allergies, cold/hot weather). My skin also doesn’t tolerate too much manual manipulation (ie scrubs) I’m a delicate flower, what can I say?
Current skin care routine:
Cleanser: Philosophy Purity Made Simple
Toner: Reviva Labs Lindenflower Facial Spray
Serum: NeoStrata Hydra-Infusion 24 Hr Hydrating Serum
