QORL, R U CONFUSED?! Do you have an extra face we don’t know about?!
I have oily skin and as much as I love the Balancing Facial Wash, I try not to use it everyday since it contains bamboo scrubs. Though the scrubs seem gentle enough, I am paranoid and don’t want to risk over-exfoliating so I alternate it with the Hydrating Facial Wash.
3 – Human Nature 100% Natural Purifying Facial Wash. Once upon a time, I relied on baking soda and a baby toothbrush to exfoliate my face weekly. I managed to keep up with it for a while but the “extra work” required (applying baking soda on my still wet face, gently brushing it with the toothbrush, rinsing it off) got a bit too tedious for me.
I only wish that HHN produced this in bigger sizes.
4 – Human Nature Balancing Face Toner. Best product ever! It does an amazing job at keeping my pimples at bay. I started running low on this a couple of weeks ago (I thought I had an extra bottle but it turns out it was empty lol) and since I work from home, I figured that I could skip it to make the product last a little longer. Zits started re-appearing, what a nightmare!
5 – Banana Boat Ultra Protect Sunscreen Lotion in SPF 80. I’m not overly picky when it comes to sunscreen (as long as it’s SPF 30 and up) and I’ll use whatever’s available. I got some Banana Boat products during Nuffnang’s screening of The Hunger Games last March so this is what I’ve been using. It’s a little thick and stings slightly (I use it on my foot tattoo, too) but it’s nothing I personally can’t handle.
I do need a new facial sunscreen, though, because I don’t like how this makes my makes my face feel sticky and grimy at the end of the day. As I told my boyfriend the first few times I used it: Ang lakas maka-libag!
(Technically, this shouldn’t be in the list since I don’t particularly love it but I needed to include the sunscreen I currently use!)
6 – Human Nature 100% Natural Moisturizing Day Fluid with 15 Vitamins & Minerals. I ran out of Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Water Gel a few weeks ago and have been using some leftover Myra-E moisturizer I received from Myra (I seriously have enough to last me a year!) a while back. I’ve never really liked HHN’s moisturizers (I bought their Sunflower and Papaya Day Moisturizer some time ago and it was too thick and I didn’t like the smell) but what I like about about this brand is that they’re always trying to improve the products they offer.
Frankly, this day moisturizer is a little too greasy for my liking (it always leaves a hair conditioner-like feel on my lips, too) but it’s all-natural so I’ll take it!
7 – Neutrogena Fine Fairness BB Cream. A favorite! And I’m not just saying that because I was part of the campaign. It’s always been my goal to wear as little makeup as possible. On mega-hot or mega-humid days and on Tomato Kick nights, I’m able to make do without my liquid foundation and just use this!
8 – Nourishing Night Oil. I’ve only recently started using this but I am liking how it’s non-greasy and easily absorbed by my skin!
