I’m running out of quite a few of my products all at once so I’m looking for new recs for them. 1st I’m low on face cleanser. I really don’t want to spend a lot here because I only wear tinted moisturizer if I wear makeup at all. I was thinking about getting Cerave hydrating cleanser because youtuber Jessica Braun always recommends it.
2nd I’m almost out of my pixi glow glycolic acid. I definitely want to continue using an acid because I think it makes a difference. I’m not sure if I should stick with glycolic though because I don’t think it exfoliates on my nose enough. My nose is always a weird combo of dry and flaky and yet somehow oily. It also has a lot of red splotchiness. I don’t know if a better/stronger acid would help with that. I folllow up my acid with either the ordinary buffet or niacinamide serum.
3rd I’m out of my face oil. I’ve been using fresh sea berry oil which I love. It’s been my favorite product but I’m not certain I really need to be spending $50 on a facial oil. I’ve been sampling Josie Maran Argan oil and it works seemingly as well.
4th I’m looking for a better daytime moisturizer. I have dry skin and I just haven’t found something I love. I’ve tried belif aquabomb and at first I liked it but it’s just not moisturizing enough. I’ve tried olay total effects and I hated it. The texture was gritty and gross. I tried first aid beauty ultra repair intense hydration and I like it but the smell is kinda icky. I’d like something that is hydrating without feeling tacky. I would prefer it to have an spf too.
Finally I’m out of conditioner. I’ve been using redken all soft and I like it. But I’m open to trying something new. I’m also open to products to put in my hair after towel drying. I’ve been using redken anti snap and Paul Mitchell awapui oil but I’m still getting a lot of baby hairs at my roots which I suspect is actually breakage. I’ve stopped combing through my wet hair like I used to but if there are any good products I am open to trying new things. I have 2A hair that’s fine but full and I’m like 75% gray so I have to color every 6 weeks. I’m also kinda interested in trying the CGM to encourage my wave. So I could be persuaded in it’s been really successful for you.
Whew. That’s a lot. Thanks so much in advance for any and all recs.
I second the Paula's Choice facial oil and moisturizers. Most of the skincare I use is from her line, including acids. I used the 2% BHA lotion on a daily basis because I will still randomly get clogged pores, but I've also used their AHA products (8% gel and 5%+ BHA) and really liked those as well.
