My Top 5 Beauty Products

My Top 5 Beauty Products

Today I am going to share my top 5 favorite beauty products that I use to clean my face on the daily basis. I have fairly oily skin which makes me more prone to get pimples and blemishes. It took me a little while to find products that work on my skin and helps control my breakouts. Let me start by saying these are not sponsored products that someone asked me to review. These are just products that have withstood the test of time and became my all time favorites. One of my goals from my bucket list was to work my up to writing honest reviews for sponsored posts and becoming an Amazon affiliate is helping me that goal. I plan to make more beauty posts in the near future so suggestions are always welcome.

Top 5 Cleansing Products

Thayers Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera, 12 Fluid Ounce Top 5 Beauty ProductsSince my skin tends to get oily I would use astringents and toners that contained alcohol, but eventually they made my skin very dry and flaky. After doing some research, I came across Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner. It is an alcohol free toner and is one of the best sellers on Amazon. This stuff was a god send for me. It keeps my skin clear and removes in excess oil to reduce breakouts. I have been using for a few months now and I highly recommend it.

Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser , 16 oz 

Top 5 Beauty ProductsOne of my good friends introduced me to this skin cleanser about a year ago. Ever since then, this has been my main facial cleanser that I use. This face wash is extremely gentle on the skin and you can tell that it cleanses your skin instead of stripping it. I use the normal to oily formula because it helps keep my oily skin under control. It is also super affordable and proves that good skin care does not have to break the bank.

Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater, 8 oz. 

Top 5 Beauty ProductsI usually don’t like when I see a product being hyped on social media because I don’t know if it is an honest review. But, I decided to give it a try when I came across it one day at ULTA.  I have to say, the product does live up to the hype. The bottle does say to use it as a setting spray, but prefer to use at night after I have taken my makeup off and washed my face because I love how it feels on my skin.  I usually tone my face with the witch hazel and spray this on after. It is like my skin becomes reborn and the smell is amazing. It is fairly cheap and it is definitely worth every penny.

Vassoul Blackhead Remover Mask, Deep Pore Cleansing for Face Nose Acne Treatment Oil Control 

This another product that was hyped up on social media. I think every makeup artist tried this mask and did a review about it.  One of the main questions I was wondering was how bad would it hurt because it looked a bit painful. After looking at a few videos from Youtube vloggers, I saw that the responses were pretty evenly divided. Some did say that it hurt and they would not try it again, while others were overall happy with their results.  My curiosity eventually got the best of me and I bit the bullet and bought some when Amazon was having their flash sale. Is it painful? Yes. On a scale of 1 to 10 I would say the pain is about an 8. The best advice I can give when you peel it off is to do it quickly (and carefully) to get it over with. I will say that it did make my face look a bit clearer and made my face much smoother. A word of advice: If you have sensitive skin I would avoid using this mask as it may cause inflammation or flare ups. This also isn’t a product you should use every week. I would say once a month would be more beneficial.

Olay ProX Advanced Cleansing System with Facial Brush, 0.68 Ounce, White 

  Top 5 Beauty ProductsI received this brush as a Christmas present and I am obsessed with it. It does an amazing job working the cleanser into my face. This is a great dupe for the Clarasonic brush and in my opinion it works just the same. It scrubs away the dead skin and gives it a deep clean. I use it after I take my makeup off and it cleans off any remaining makeup that is still on my face. It is definitely worth the buy and works great for the price.
