Keep it simple.
That’s always my motto when it comes to taking care of my combination skin. Because there are two different skin types going on with different needs, when I find something that works I totally stick to it. Even when I decide to get adventurous and try something new, I always come back to these, which haven’t failed me yet!
Biore Charcoal Facial Cleanser
Ever since I reviewed this cleanser last year, it’s the only cleanser I use. It’s powerful enough to get down in those pores to remove dirt and makeup but gentle enough not to dry skin out in the process. Even my husband’s a fan! $7, ulta.com
Pond’s Cold Cream Cleanser
Maybelline Clean Express Classic Eye Makeup Remover
A semi-recent discovery of mine, I didn’t realize how much I liked it until I ran out of it and bought something else. The gel formula is less messy than liquids and glides on so much easier. Taking off the most stubborn makeup is a breeze and for the price, it’s a steal! $5, walmart.com
Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer for Combination Skin
I’ve tried a lot of moisturizers, some of which were all kinds of awesome but when it comes a product that always gets the job done, it’s this one from Neutrogena. One of the few moisturizers out there that cater especially to my skin type, it provides enough moisture for the dry parts of skin while keeping it light in the T-Zone. Skin also feels firmer after use, too. $10, neutrogena.com
Clean and Clear Blackhead Eraser Mask
When the hormones are out of whack or I’m overdoing it on the greasy foods my skin totally freaks out. I’m talking about white heads, black heads and big, painful pimples. That’s where this mask comes in, formulated with salicylic acid that gets to out that bacteria that’s causing skin to break out in the first place. I just slather it on, wait 5 minutes for it to dry and then wipe it off. In a day or 2 my zits are cleared up and I’m a happy camper. $6, walgreens
