Lately many people have complimented me on my skin *thanks!!* I’ve been hard at work trying to figure out the exact balance of oils, so I don’t dry my face out, or over saturate it with product. It’s quite the balancing act.

One of my all-time favorite cleansers is the redness relief cleanser for normal to oily skin. This would be the first step in your skin care routine to get all the dirt, and makeup residue off your face. It’s also ideal for those of us with very sensitive skin, who have quite a bit of redness. It’s gentle and has no intrusive scent, which I really enjoy.

The smoothing primer serum (SPF 30) then creates a great base, while also helping with anti-aging, enlarged pores and wrinkles. Being 26 I am starting to really see the wrinkles attempting to come in. Ain’t nobody got time for that, so I am all about combating the wrinkling. This serum really works under my stick foundation, as well as liquid foundation, making it an easy option when it comes to formulation.

Because serums are some of my favorites to apply each night, I had a feeling I would love the redness relief repairing serum (suitable for all skin types) because it’s the perfect additional step with so many benefits. It helps to smooth lines and wrinkles (yes please!) and it can be used twice each day. The consistency is so lightweight.

In case you haven’t read my skin care posts in the past, I like to write about products in the order you would use them.

Now the redness relief (SPF 30) moisturizer for normal to oily skin is excellent for the day time. In Arizona, it’s pretty much hot year-round and I like to protect my skin thoroughly even if I’m going to be outside for a total of 30 minutes. Since I have oilier skin, this helps to balance my face oils while also soothing the sensitive red areas of my face. It always seems that my cheeks are super sensitive, but my forehead has started to be redder than normal.

The redness relief moisturizer for normal to oily skin is also a great add to the redness in my face. This moisturizer is perfect for night time since it doesn’t have SPF. It does a great job helping to retain your skin’s moisture and create a smoother surface.

Whenever I’ve tried anything for dark spots on my face, it’s all had a lot of claims but nothing has actually worked. The triple action dark spot eraser 2% BHA gel contains hydroquinone, which is the best ingredient for skin lightening. I also love the ease of rubbing this gel into my skin because the consistency is not too thick but not too thin either. This gel would be the last step in your skin care routine after serum and moisturizer.

When it comes to brightening, the brightening essence helps with anti-aging. Its main goal is to replenish antioxidants which helps to brighten and revitalize the skin. This can be used twice a day after cleansing. This formulation has a lightweight fluid texture, and I love the additional luminosity bonus. Because I have dull and dehydrated skin from the heat, it makes a big difference when I give it this brightening effect.
