I have tried pretty much everything you can buy at CVS for your skin. Growing up even when I didn't have acne, I've always had blotchy, red, skin. It's something I used to be very self conscious about that I'm just now starting to get over. Plus I have a skin allergy to Tea Tree Oil that makes it hard to get higher end products.
Being a generally lazy person for someone who always has two planners, no matter what I tried I never really stuck with it because I didn't see instant results. Or even worse I saw an instant result that was bad.
About a month into college I stopped washing my face all together. It was causing me a lot of break outs that I wasn't used to and it made my skin dry and irritated (which just brought the red blotches out more). What I did do was just use make-up remover wipes before I went to bed and moisturized. I've alway used Neutrogena original make-up remover wipes because they just leave my skin feeling the best.
After I remove my makeup at night, I use Neutrogena's deep moisture night face cream. This is honestly a miracle worker. Whenever I put this on I wake up with dewey glowing skin and it's just awesome. It's even more amazing in the winter when your face is dry and windblown.
Every morning I usually splash some water on my face then put on Neutrogena's daily moisturizer for oily to combination skin. These three things (plus some of the Neutrogena simple face cleanser once in a blue moon) kept my skin looking amazing at school! But when I came back home for the summer I noticed my skin was more oily and I started getting a few little blackheads.
This is when I decided to purchase Neutrogena's toner. I had never really used toner before but I started just putting it on a cotton ball and rubbing it over my skin after removing my makeup and before I put on any kind of lotion. The first time I used it I noticed it took off a bunch of makeup dirt I didn't know I had on my face, and it was less oily.
My love for Neutrogena is ever growing, and I promise you this is not a sponsored post, I'm just in love with all of their products!
