My Holy Grail Skin Care Products!

Hello Lovelies,
I believe in the theory Less Is More! Always have, always will. I have been blessed with good skin with the exception of blackheads and breakouts here and there. When I pile on the products my skin freaks out but when I keep things to a minimum order is restored. My main concerns are keeping my skin radiant and clean. I plan on doing a skincare routine soon but I wanted to share 3 of my Holy Grail skin care products. I will and have repurchased these items over and over and they always live up to my expectations.


                              Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser
My mom and I have been using Cetaphil for years and it has never let us down. It is very gentle, does not sting when you accidently get it in your eyes, it doesn't strip the skin of it's natural oils, and most importantly it leaves your face feeling clean and refreshed. I cleanse my skin twice to first get the makeup and dirt off, then to actually clean the face. The best part is that Cetaphil is a dermatologist approved affordable drugstore brand!
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       .                                                                                                    St. Ives Apricot Scrub 
Another cult favorite product, St. Ives Apricot Scrub is amazing! It's a drugstore brand, costs approx. $5, and works really well. I adore exfoliating because after I'm done my skin looks healthy, radiant, and re-charged. The apricot scrub has a thick paste like consistency, it's peach in color, and has large granulated peach seed particles that slough away the dead skin. Some might be afraid to use this scrub because they claim it's too harsh but when using light pressure it's quite gentle. I use this product 1-2 times a week and my complexion thanks me!
                        Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

My mom has always taught me and I recently read the same statement in Liz Earle's book that during the night our skin naturally repairs itself and the products we clog our pores with only hinder our body from doing it's job so I like to keep it to a minimum. I love using the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizng Gel, it has the perfect consistency, it's lightweight, and leaves my skin feeling moisturized without weighting it down or making it appear greasy! The design of the bottle is great as well, the pump allows you to get the perfect amount of product every time. During the day I find that it helps my makeup go flawlessly and easily since I don't have to worry about dry spots! Best part is that this moisturizer does not clog your pores and lets your skin breath! I have been using this moisturizer for approximately 4 years and I love it. I does the perfect job moisturizing my skin =) I did try the original lotion version but it's to heavy for my skin type.

Let me know if you use any of these products and what your HG skincare items are!

XOXO-Angelika.
