Problem Skin

My skin has caused me a lot of grief over the years. It’s not the worst in the entire world but can be frustrating. I have really sensitive skin and have also struggled with sometimes oily, combination skin and pimples. I have tried quite a few products and found what works best for me, so this is a list of the most effective products I have found:

Phisoderm Anti-Blemish Gel Facial Wash

This face wash has really been the best that I have ever found but I can’t find it in any of the typical stores (Walgreens, Target, etc) so I buy this on drugstore.com in bulk. It’s really cheap so that’s awesome, but the best thing is that it gently washes my face and keeps it (relatively) break out free.


I put my face wash on this bad boy to get a super scrub. If I haven’t washed my face yet and I have had a face full of makeup I typically do a pre-wash. With just a little bit of face wash I do a quick rinse so when I use the Clarisonic it really gets the chance to get everything out of my pores. This also lets products soak deeper into your fresh, clean pores so if my skin is acting up I Clarisonic it (it can be a verb) and put a treatment cream on top. The Clarisonic is also supposed to reduce fine lines and wrinkles over time, so…. that’s cool.

Proactiv Repairing Lotion

This stuff is really incredible. I can’t use it too often because it dries my face out a lot, but it really makes a difference when I apply it after washing my face before bed when I have a breakout.

Biore Pore Strips

These are as effective as they are fun. A little gross, but it’s awesome being able to see something work!

Ponds Cold Cream

This is a makeup remover extraordinaire. This gets the most waterproof and difficult makeup off in no time. I just put it on my eyes, rub it in, and remove with a tissue. I’ve used this since extravagant Halloweens growing up!

Bare Minerals Moisturizer

This moisturizer is light and effective. It makes my skin feel hydrated but quenched, and doesn’t cause extra breakouts. I put this on under my makeup in the morning.
