Skincare: Day-in, Day-out Routine



Neutrogena Oil Free Make-up RemoverFacial WipesShea Moisture Black Soap, (See info for Liz Earle products below)

I usually clean my with face wipes before I wash my face with Shea Moisture soap bar. This helps to remove a good portion of make-up or dirt before washing with soap. If I have on a large amount of mascara I use the Neutrogena Eye Make-up remover to quickly swift it off and this helps with not having to do extra lathers. 

Shea Moisture Soap - I swear by this soap. It is super moisturizing and smells amazing.


Moisturizing your face and skin is very important to keep a healthy and radiant skin. 

These are some of my favorite body products. You can use organic coconut oil on both your face and your body. It is a very cheap option that has great benefits. I also love that the coconut oil is not greasy and really won't mess up your clothes, sheets and fabric couches. If you can't tell, I grease up after my showers. The water has so much chemicals in it, you have to really be careful and quench your skin. 
Trader Joes Organic Coconut Oil  or any organic option Organic Coconut Oil (If you can, go straight to the store and buy them. Trader Joe's is $5.99 in store, Costco also sells for about the same price), Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Bath, Body & Massage OilShea Moisture Argon Oil & Raw Shea Body Scrub 
I must admit, I am obsessed with all things Shea Moisture. I haven't used any of their products and was disappointed. Both their hair and body products are excellent. 


I am very picky about my face and skin in general. I use and do a variety of things to keep my skin glowing. My skin tend to get use to products easily so, in order to to remedy that, I switch in and out products. 
My morning routine is to wash with Shea Moisture African Black Soap. It is a very moisturizing soap and has an oh-so awesome natural aroma. After washing I moisturize and then apply my make up. 

My evening routine involves removing make-up/dirt build up from my face with cleansing cloths and then washing with Shea Moisture African Black Soap. I use the cleansing cloths so as to not lather my face too much. I then add my Liz Earle Skin Tonic boots and Moisturizer or coconut oil.

I do a microdemabraison treatment every 2 days using the Body Shop Vitamin C Microdermabraison. It removes dead cells and clear up small facial marks caused by pimples etc. I usually use the origins overnight mask after each microdemabraison treatment because it is super moisturizing and my face will feel like a baby's bum the next morning.  The Vitamin C Moisturizer from the same family at body shop works just as perfect with the microdermabaison. 


I do a mask treatment once or twice per month using the Origins Charcoal Mask. This helps to clear my pores and leaves my skin feeling smooth and tight (slight botox in a bottle-hehe). I follow-up wit ice cubes to close my pores, then moisturize with coconut oil.

For my body I use a general body gel/soap (love Olay brand) or another Shea Moisture bar (different from the one I use on my face) and I do a body scrub at least twice per week then moisturize. I mostly use a body oil (such as one above) and the organic coconut oil. I rarely use regular lotion, I just feel like my skin gets more nourishment from body oils or coconut oil than regular lotion. 

*A few buying tips:
Buy Shea Moisture products from Target, Walgreens or CVS when they are on buy one get one free or Buy one get one 50% off. Stock up at that point. Killer savings!!!!!
Buy Origins products when they have SET sales. You can save up to $10 when you buy their products in sets. 
If you plan on buying or using Body Shop products, get a membership for $10 because qualifying purchases you get 10% off and you get points that leads to rewards and a $10 amount for your birthday.
