Physicans Fromula: 3-in-1 Melting Cleansing Balm
I love love this stuff! I use it before I cleanse my face, I use this first to remove all my makeup so it is easier for my gel cleanser to get everything off of my face!
WHAT IT IS:
An ultra gentle 3-in-1 cleansing balm that melts away makeup, deeply cleans away impurities and leaves the skin fully supple and hydrated.
WHY IT’S GOOD FOR YOU:
Antioxidant-packed and enriched with Matcha Green Tea, Bamboo Shoot, and Lotus Extract.
It is also - Hypoallergenic. Paraben-Free. Gluten Free. Dermatologist Tested. Non-Comedogenic. Clinically Tested. Safe For Sensitive Eyes & Contact Lens Wearers. Ophthalmologist Tested. Vegan. Cruelty Free.
I cant express enough how much I love this stuff, so easy to wipe off and leaves it hydrated while pulling out all those nasty impurities.
I always use a hydrating cleanser cause I have dry skin, but this one is even better with it having Ceramides AND Hyaluronic Acid which is even better.
What is Ceramides you ask? Ceramides have become a common ingredient in skin care products. Age wears down the effectiveness of ceramides, meaning dryer and rougher skin, as well as wrinkles. Ceramide skin products contain natural or synthetic ceramides that aim to increase hydration in the skin and strengthen its moisture barrier.
What is Hyaluronic Acid? Hyaluronic acid is used in many anti-wrinkle skin care products. Hyaluronic acid can be found in many skin care products. Hyaluronic acid injections are sometimes used to treat certain types of arthritis. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in epithelial, or skin, cells.
So, I also use another one that isn't intended for dry skin just combo from this same brand as well.
But, needless to say this cleanser does the job for only 4.99 its a major steal and I love that it never leaves my face feeling dry! I hate cleansers that always make me feel dry after using!
After I Cleanse I always use a toner my favorite is always Witch Hazel!
This the only 100% natural astringent that effectively cleanses, soothes and treats everyday skin irritations, without overdrying or leaving behind irritating residue. Gentle enough for daily use on face & body to relieve oily, irritated, red, damaged and blemished skin. Effective enough to cleanse and soothe minor skin conditions and treat everyday skin irritations. Contains no artificial fragrances or dyes.
Will not overdry skin like alcohol and salicylic acid.
Will not leave behind irritating residue.

I have been using this toner for YEARS! I have been wanting to switch to the Pixi GlowTonic toner but I why spend 16 plus dollars when you can get this for 5??
I LOOOVE a good moisturizer with SPF. This keeps my face hydrated all day and helps restore the protective skin barrier! It contains a SPF 30, Ceramides, Hyaluronic Acid AND Niacinamide. Also even better this brand is HIGHLY recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation!
Also, this CeraVe brand has lines for all types of skin problems.
This eye cream has a unique water gel-cream formula absorbs quickly, like a gel, but has the long-lasting moisturizing power of a cream to quench your extra-dry skin’s thirst. It contains hydrating hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the skin, and acts as a sponge for dry skin cells, absorbing up to 1,000 times its weight in water resulting in more supple and smooth skin in the eye area. I use this both morning and at night, I am trying to find me a eye cream for "night time" I have used this whole HydroBoost line but for some reason the water base moisturizer breaks out my face so bad, but everything else is fine, its weird how different things work with your skin.
I love using these little pads for a quick clean when I have been outside working to cleanse my face! Each pad looks like a cute little lemon. Each lemon-shaped pad is enriched with lemon extract and Vitamin C. Facial cleansing pads gently cleanse and exfoliate away dirt and oil. These are safe to use daily, and will always give your face a nice refreshing feel!
I used this last night and absolutely loved it and KNEW it had to be in this post!! CLEAN & CLEAR Night Relaxing Jelly Eye Sheet Face Mask soothes and replenishes skin, targeting the eye area where stress and sleepiness from the day can show. The cooling jelly sheet mask with Hydrogel formula is designed to contour to skin to help restore and lock in essential nourishing ingredients and moisture leaving the skin feeling fresh and replenished. Gentle on skin and easy to put on and remove, this ready-to-use eye mask contains seaweed extract and is the perfect way to wind down, destress, and relax at night. Use this dermatologist tested, alcohol-free, & non-comedogenic face mask for just 15 minutes to replenish skin after a long day. (info found from website). After I used this last night I immediately notice how different it felt and loved it! My eyes felt relaxed and very cooling. I will be getting more of theses for sure!
I have been using this E.L.F Hydrating Serum for about 2 weeks and I love it! I have notice a big difference in my skin and it not always being so dry!!! I love E.L.F brand! It has been my go to for years before I really started getting into makeup and skincare! This product is Designed to help strengthen the skin, this Hydrating Serum locks in moisture. The formula helps soothe and protect the skin with jojoba, aloe, vitamin E, grape, and shea butter for ultimate nourishment.
As always all of e.l.f. skincare products are free from Parabens, Sulfates, and Phthalates.
Also, a few other things I love and will leave some links too is these wonderful facial wipes, I always get them at CVS, I love the price point and I love how when I use them they don't leave my face feeling sticky like I should wash it after! I always get either the brighten (the tiger) wipes or the soothing ones (the unicorn).
Also, I love using under eye patches, I normally get the "gold eye" undereye patches on amazon or the ELF brand undereye patches
There you have it my bargains for great skincare!! Do you use any of these products? If so let me know how you like them or if you don't and why?!
I know everyone's skin is different and some of this may not work in your routine, but this is what works for me and what I love!
Also, I m going to give these ladies a try and shave my face....I watched Jaclyn Hill's video on this subject be sure to click the link and go check out her video on it! I seriously think it may change my makeup game and skin care game?
