I’m sharing my favorite skin care products on Baltimore Belle today!
Pixi’s Glow Tonic Toner is my MVP of all toners! It’s not harsh or drying and you notice a change in your skin in a week or two. It definitely brightens your skin, if you are consistent with it. I ventured off and tried another toner (that will not be named) and ended up breaking out on my nose and chin. Lesson learned Pixie, I will never betray you!
Alternative: Thayers Witch Hazel
Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser
This cleanser always makes me feel like I just had a facial. It removes the heaviest of makeup, blackheads and leaves your skin very soft. Bonus: It improved my skin texture and acne scars. I use this every other day then top it off with a moisturizer or facial spray for extra softness.
Alternative: Clean and Clear Deep Action Oil Control Face Wash
I always thought rosewater sprays or any facial spray were total BS, until I tried Mario Badescu’s facial spray. The spray gives you that extra umph you need to look and feel refreshed. Its hydrating and the spray costs next to nothing!
Alternative: Evian Natural Mineral Water Facial Spray
I really like this cleanser because it minimizes blemishes and shrinks pores.
Alternative: Cetaphil Face Wash
Sephora really out did themselves with their masks! They made several masks for all skin types. My favorite is the Green Tea face mask, it leaves your skin firm and hydrated. This is a great masks if your skin is feeling dull, and the price isn’t too bad either!
Alternative: St. Ives Nourished and Smooth Oatmeal Scrub and Mask
I will be using this later because it’s currently 2am as I’m typing this blog! This eye mask is my go-to. It saves me from using several layers of concealer to hide my dark circles.
I LOVE, LOOOOVE this eye cream! This is one of those products, that you need to use everyday to get results. I use the eye cream before bed and before I apply makeup.
Note: A little bit of goes along way. When I was searching for eye creams, a Sephora sales associate suggested Fresh Lotus and gave me several samples. It’s been two months and I still have a few samples left!
Alternative: e.l.f. Illuminating Eye Cream
Biore helps with the most stubbornness of blackheads. The results show, instantly! You will literally see every blackhead that was removed on the pore strip. I know it’s gross, but hey! It’s part of the beauty process! 🙂
Alternative: Nesura Charcoal Pore Strips Black Head Remover
These towelettes remove eye makeup very easy and it doesn’t leave your skin dry or irritated. It gets the job done.
Alternative: Studio 35 Night Calming Facial Wipes
I hope my skin care suggestions were helpful. I will be back Friday with a new post! Have a great week! 🙂
