Skin Care Refresher

I don’t know about you guys but I find skin care extremely frustrating! I see all of the different options and I don’t know where to start.

I’ve gone through all of the quizzes, I’ve determined my skin type and my problem areas but when I get the many recommendations of cleansers, toners and moisturizers I don’t know where to start! I get so overwhelmed that I want to try everything so I switch between products easily and often.

So I’ve decided to start over: clear all of the products out of my cabinet, pick the simplest products and stick to it. I did my research and it reaffirmed my thoughts about sticking to a skin care regimen and convinced myself to try it out!


These are my choices and I promise to stick with it for at least 2 months, since it takes at least 28 days for your skin to regenerate.


Cleanser:  Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser
Make-up Remover: Bioderma Sensibio H2O Make Up Remover
Moisturizer:  Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15 (for day) and Vichy NormaDerm Hydrating Care (for night)
  Etival Clarifying Soothing Pore Reducing Toner
Eye Cream: Shiseido Ibuki Eye Correcting Cream

Check out this video, by youtuber and blogger Amelia Liana (stick to the end).
And her blog post about the products she uses for her ‘skin care refresher’.

So are you going to start over and let your skin heal and rejuvenate?
What are your ‘go-to’ skin care products that you can’t live without?

Are you going to take the “skin care refresher challenge”?
