May 2014 Skin Care Favorites

Show of hands, how many of you feel like you are too old to be using acne skin care products?  I am really hoping I am not the only one currently raising my hand.  I don't know about you, but it is getting old (and so am I....ba-dum ching).  I want to use anti-aging products and not worry that they are going to make my skin break out even more.  So about 6 weeks ago, I decided to make a solid effort to take better care of my skin, in hopes that prevention would stop the breakouts.  Or at least make them less frequent.  So far so good.  It seems to be working!  These are the products I have been using recently, my favorite skin care products from May!

The first thing I did was use a gift certificate left over from from Christmas and headed to Macy's to purchase a Clarisonic Mia 2.  I've been hearing great things for awhile and decided it was time to bite the bullet and give it a try.  I can definitely say, all of the hype is true!  Since I started using it, my skin has become super soft and has definitely cleared up!  Acne Prevention?  Absolutely!  I've read that some people have a "purging" phase when they first start to use a Clarisonic.
Like their skin gets worse before it gets better because so much gunk is coming out of their pores.
I didn't have this experience, but fair warning, you might!

 I love that this comes in so many different colors and has a great travel case, since I am always on the go.  A full charge lasts about 2 weeks, so I haven't had to bring the charger with me on my travels.  One less charger to pack is always a nice perk.

  I used the Clarisonic brand cleanser that came with it for the first few weeks.  I can't complain about it at all.  I enjoyed it.  But it isn't exactly the easier product in the world to pick up when it runs out.

Enter my new FAAAAAAAVORITE face wash!  Biore's Deep Charcoal Cleanser.

I can't tell you how much my skin has improved since I started using this!  Less break outs, smaller pores, just over all great skin!  I love love love it!

Which then of course, lead me to give their face mask a-whirl. And of course I love that too!  It's quick, easy and man does it work.  I usually leave it on a little bit longer than a minute, but it is so nice that I don't have to eke out a chunk of time for a face mask.

Another difference in my skin care routine has been taking off my makeup before washing my face.  I'm love Neutrogena Make-Up Remover Cleaning Towelettes.  It takes 2 seconds for me to wipe everything off with these bad boys.  And (let's be honest) occasionally I will head to bed just swiping one of these.  But hey!
At least I took my makeup off, right?

Some of you may be thinking, man is this girl slow to the party!  I've been doing that for years!  Maybe I am a little slow, but wow what a difference taking off my makeup before washing my face has made.

In the last month or so, I can safely say my concealer is getting less of a workout because my skin has definitely improved!

So those are my May Skin Care favorites!  What do you use to keep your skin clear? I'm always looking for new products to try and any tips or tricks!
