My morning skincare routine

- Clinique acne solutions cleansing foam: I switch between this and my Neutrogena acne wash when I wake up each morning. I started using this cleansing foam when I tried out the small/trial sizes of the 3-step acne solutions kit from Clinique which included this, a toner/lotion, and a moisturizer. That 3-step kit saved my skin from my acne and now I'm about to go on my third bottle of this (2nd full sized bottle.) I just can't live without this product; it's definitely my HG face wash.

-Neutrogena oil-free acne wash pink grapefruit foaming scrub: As I mentioned, I switch between my Clinique and this each morning, depending on my mood. Especially if I need something to wake me up, I go for this one because I love the scent of grapefruit. The beads or scrub particles are small, so this is gentle enough to use everyday. It foams up just a little bit. I also love the color! I'm always excited to wash my face when I think of this product.

-Clinique acne solutions clarifying lotion: I forgot to add this when I was taking a photo of the products because it was in my room. This is a part of the 3-step kit I mentioned earlier. It's like a toner; It's liquid and you have to shake it up before you use it. This helps remove the extra dirt on my face if I didn't wash my face well. It also helps exfoliate dead skin; I definitely notice the dead skin it removes when I see some on the cotton ball. Also, this doesn't dry out my skin like regular toners do; As you can see in the name, it says lotion so that makes sense.
-Lancome bright expert dark spot corrector and radiance activator: I use this to help with my hyper pigmentation. I don't really see any difference yet but I'll update you ladies on it when I finish it up. 

-Myra E facial moisturizer: I love this moisturizer because it's water based. It doesn't give my face that oily/greasy feeling that many moisturizers do to me. (By the way, I have oily skin.) If you have dry skin, I wouldn't recommend this to you because it's quite light.

-Formula 10.0.6 Seriously Shine Free Mattifying Oil-Free Moisturizer with Aloe Vera + Bamboo: I reviewed this and said I didn't like it because I don't notice much difference in its mattifying claims. I just use it because it's the second lightest moisturizer I have that doesn't feel oily and I like how it has aloe vera and bamboo in it. I'll just continue to rely on my powder to keep my face shine-free.
