As a forty-something woman, I find that my skincare routine is more important now than ever. My skin is much drier than it has ever been, so all of the products I use are different from what I used when I was younger. I have melasma (hyperpigmentation) on my face, and my skin is fairly sensitive.
I’m kind of a beauty product junkie, so I’ve tried much of the popular skin care products, at least in the low-to-middle price range. Everything from drugstore brands, department store brands, to online-only products, like Paula’s Choice. This is what’s working for me right now:
To wash my face, I use Sciabica’s Lavender Olive Oil to remove my eye makeup, then I use the Buttercup Hot Process Facial Soap from Paintbox Soapworks. It’s important to me to reduce waste as much as possible, so I stopped using makeup remover wipes. I just lather up the soap, gently rub it over my face, and then use a warm washcloth to rinse it off. It leaves my face clean, and it never feels stripped.
If I need to exfoliate, I use the Clean Slate Facial Scrub from Paintbox Soapworks. I love the scent of it, so fresh and clean! I do want to try the Buttercup Moisturizing Scrub, next time, though.
At this time, I’m not using any products specifically for my eye area, although I probably should!
