living better with less: facial cleansers


I’m not a spa person, I prefer to do all my beauty routines at home (including my nails), nor am I a product junkie. Since most products need time and consistency to really work, when I find something I like, I stick to it.

People’s needs are different depending on age and lifestyle. I’m late 30’s so I need extra exfoliation but am careful not to do too much as overdoing it with products can actually have a negative affect on your skin. My skin is a little sensitive so I try to avoid anything with too much fragrance or unnecesary additives.

Here’s my current cleansing routine and products:

Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleaner
everyday cleanser

Prescriptives Immediate Smooth Exfoliator
use 2 or 3x a week with the foaming cleaner. i labeled it so i don’t forget. this is no longer available and i’m on my last tube. will probably just use the glycolic wash only when it’s done…

Trish McEvoy Even Skin Glycolic Wash
a more intense exfoliator used 1x or 2x a week, instead of the foaming cleanser. i use it on my hands as well as my neck and chest when in the shower. 

Fresh Umbrian Clay Treatment Bar
2x a week to clean out pores

Philosophy Microdelivery Peel
2x a month for more intense exfoliating

  1. Hello, There’s no doubt that your blog could possibly be
    having web browser compatibility issues. Whenever I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening

    Apart from that, fantastic site!
