Not to mention, the main objective is to thoroughly clean your face, which can be a process. Although I still love and primarily double cleanse my face, I wanted a good one and done product. While spending way too much time in Ulta, I walked up on this micellar foaming face wash. Like most skincare junkies, I love micellar water. However, I was intrigued this this was a micellar foaming cleanser and felt like I needed to give this a try for a few reasons.

Best Drugstore Sheet Masks You Can Buy

Whenever I’ve had a long and/or bad day, I have a routine that instantly makes me forget about. Said routine usually consists of a watching true crime TV while sipping wine and noshing on wasabi peas with a random sheet mask on my face. As much as I would like to stop using sheet masks, they are just so good for me. I love and embrace any beauty product that can work it’s magic on me with little to no assistance from me. Impulse buying sheet masks, especially drugstore sheet masks. I bulk buy them and hoard them for those days when I feel like only a sheet mask will do.

Aveeno Clear Complexion Foam Cleanser

I’m having a serious case of the Mondays. Although there a a few reason, I believe I know the main reason; I had to wear boots today. It’s the middle of April I to pull pair boots from the back of my closet that I did prepare to see for another 6-7 months. One day it’s 70 degrees without a cloud in the sky. The next, it’s a cloudy 48 with high winds and I’m trying to figure out how many layers should I wear. I know they say dress for the season, but sundresses and sandals in 40 degree weather is not a good idea. Not only has it been difficult to stick to seasonal outfits, but also seasonal skincare regimens.

I already have combination skin, but dealing with combination skin in combination weather is stressful. So, until Mother Nature picks a season, I’ve been looking for products that can deal with my oily skin on warm days and not dry out my skin on cold day. One product that has been amazing to my skin in these trying days is Aveeno Clear Complexion Foam Cleanser.

However, I did give makeup sponges so many chances and have the collection of teardrop shaped sponges to prove it. Thankfully, I never gave up on finding a makeup sponge, which lead me to my favorite makeup tool; Real Techniques Complexion Sponge.
