Me and my skin have a terrible love/hate relationship. I mean, I know I’m blessed to have reasonably good skin. I don’t have terrible cysts or anything that bad. But I do have the worst combination skin, and a bit of rosacea. My forehead and eyelids are constantly doing the tango between oily and dry, and my cheeks have a perpetual pink flush. So whenever I’m seeking to address something like a breakout, finding a product that will cater to my skins needs is surprisingly hard. Then I stumbled on Missglamorazzi’s morning skin care routine ( if you haven’t subscribed to her video‘s, tumblr, twitter, or FB you totally should- she’s got great makeup tutorials, and she’s also done some giveaways too!). Anyways, after watching Ingrid’s vid I decided to try Aveeno’s Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser for myself- and I have never been so surprised by a product before (in a good way).
Before trying Aveeno’s cleanser I had been using a prescribed medication for breakouts and prevention. I used it on and off because I felt that the product was super harsh on my skin. So, the first time I used the cleanser I noticed a significant difference in my skin tone, and scattered acne breakouts. I had washed my face at night, and in the morning my acne was clearing and my rosacea was definitely lighter. Since then I’ve been a HUGE fan. I’ve stopped using the medication (which I am not recommending you do, so be sure to consult your doctor before changing your skincare routine- I’m just telling you what worked for me), and now wash my face nightly with Aveeno. The wash smells amazing, and doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight and dry.
Since I expect to be traveling soon I picked up Aveeno’s bar version of the same cleanser- and I also picked up one to giveaway here!
