I'm currently on vacation enjoying some rainy days in Latvia and some much needed family time. I haven't visited in 2 years and over the course of time a lot has changed. When I was putting together my luggage, I thought about what skincare to take and what I can do without. With all the problems I've been having with my skin lately, I didn't want to neglect my skin during vacation so here's what I put together.
For taking off my makeup, I've been using the Garnier Express 2 in 1 Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover. It is a duo phase makeup remover which takes off even the most stubborn mascaras and I really like that it is lightweight. To cleanse my skin, I'll be using the Bioderma Purifying Cleansing Foaming Gel which is formulated for combination to oily skin. It helps control sebum production and blemishes, which makes it great for acne prone skin.
I never go anywhere without my acne treatments, and I recently started using the Bioderma Intensive Purifying Care which is supposed to eliminate spots and blackheads. In addition to that, I've taken my ever trusty Neo Medrol for those really pesky cysts. It gets rid of the inflammation and redness in about 3 days, but it is a prescribed treatment so unfortunately not everyone can get their hands on it.
Because no skincare kit is complete without some moisturizer, I've taken the Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturizer (review here) and the Jurlique Herbal Recovery Eye Cream*. Both of these are amazing, and even though I only recently started using the Jurlique Eye Cream, I am already in love with it. Lastly, because I like to do a facemask at least once a week, I decided to take the Garnier Pure Self-Heating Sauna Mask to deeply purify your skin for up to 7 days, and the Montagne Jeunesse Anti-Stress Cucumber Peel-off Mask to get rid of impurities and dead skin. I haven't tried either of these masks before but I've used others from both brands and they have worked really well for my skin.
