Summer can be a rather complex season for my skin as some days I can have the most amazing glow while on other days my skin can be well… rather blah and dull. Lately I’ve noticed how sensitive my skin has gotten especially when my diet is concerned. I find that on the days and weeks I neglect water and a healthy diet, my skin reacts with redness, dark under eye circles and breakouts.
For the most part my skin care regimen essentials include natural ingredients such as clays, essential oils, strawberries, yogurt and the list goes on. But those are specialty treatments and aren’t used as frequently as the ingredients in the products I use on a daily basis such as cleansers and moisturizers.
Late this spring I heard of Micheal Todd’s from some beauty Guru’s and decided to give this brand a try. I got the Micheal Todd True Organics discovery kit for sensitive skin and love how everything I would need is included. For $35, free extra sample packets and an online coupon for another online beauty store and an extra welcome 15% off, I found this to be a great deal. I also have enough product to try for several weeks as opposed to most samples that usually only last a few days, if that.
Honey & Oat Deep Pore Cleanser| Definitely going to get the full version of this as it gets rid of all my makeup and although not 100% organic, it does not contain harsh chemicals and leaves my skin soft and actually moisturized.|
Cranberry Antiox Toner| This smells divine! I love how it soothes my skin while providing this tingling sensation. It picks up any makeup residue my cleanser may have missed and does not dry my skin out as some toners tend to do. Another must full version for me.|
Tropical Fruit Enzyme Exfoliant Scrub| I like how light this scrub is and leaves my skin feeling very soft but not irritated as some scrubs can be. I also use this as a lip scrub and neck and decolletage scrub as it’s not so harsh on those sensitive areas.|
Citrus Cream Moisturizer| I have a love hate with this one and its mostly because of my skin type. On some days it feels as if it sits on my skin and feels oily and other days my skin soaks it up. I use this moisturizer nightly after I cleanse and tone and daily after I rinse my face in the morning. This moisturizer actually works under my foundation and this is the moisturizer I use daily under makeup. I may get the full version to use as a night cream and try another lighter moisturizer for daily use. Nonetheless this is a very rich moisturizer and recommend if you skin leans toward the dry side.|
Charcoal Detoxifying Clay Mask:| I was really excited about this mask but just as disappointed. I was thinking about a more thicker consistency as this is a bit too runny for me. I feel like I have to use a lot more product because of it. I use it once a week along with the scrub and it cleanses my skin but does not wow me as my other cosmetics clays and recipes do.
Overall I’m very satisfied and my skin is definitely improving and breaking out a lot less. On the days I don’t wear makeup I notice my skin is less blotchy and not as irritated. So long as I keep hydrated and eat well this regimen helps me look my best.
