The gel cleanser sloths off my makeup effortlessly to the point where I don’t even need eye makeup remover anymore (um this is kind of amazing!), and its specifically designed for acne prone skin. Yay! – Not sure why I’m celebrating acne prone skin, but I’m happy there’s a product to help it – that doesn’t bleach it.
The Yon-ka Toner smells absolutely amazing and I love it so much! Which is really saying something because as my esthetician can attest I was not a fan of using toning products before. I would very often skip this step because my skin would either feel tight or feel dry, and neither of these were the case with the Yon-ka Toner. My skin felt clean, and fresh, and never dry.
When you suffer the slings and arrows (apologies I just saw Ballet Jorgen’s Romeo and Juliet – read about here) of adult acne you know that it’s important to scuff off all that dead skin so your skin can breathe and make room for fresh new skin. The guarana scrub is great for for detoxing as well as exfoliating. I used this scrub a couple times a week (especially on weekends) when I want to really make sure to take off my heavy makeup. After using the scrub I noted that my skin felt super soft, and clean, and most importantly fresh. It’s important not to over do it with this one, exfoliating is great but in moderation; your skin is very fragile, and you don’t want to upset it by using abrasive products too much.
I also make sure to follow up after a scrub with a great hydrator. It’s important to put moisture back in because you to nourish that your fresh new skin. I love the pamplemouse cream, its fresh citrus scent not only smells amazing, but also absorbs into the skin quickly and doesn’t feel greasy or sticky. It’s perfect for applying under your makeup because it makes the skin super soft, hydrating, and feels really clean, and it didn’t break me out! Woo!
Honestly these skin care products are my most loved to date! My skin has not looked this great in a really long time. I’ve been really trying to stay consistent with using all of the products together to make sure I’m getting an accurate perception of their effectiveness and I really think it’s helping to calm down my acne.
