Hey there! Today I thought we could chat about skincare.
I have super sensitive skin, annoying eczema and a very oily t-zone. A couple of months ago I went on a mission to change up my skincare to find products that are right for me. I’ve finally found a combination of products that I love and thought I would share them!
This video is definitely not sponsored. I paid for everything with my own hard earned money and am sharing my honest review, as always! If you’re interested in more honest reviews, vlogs and Cecil videos please subscribe to my channel – it’s free to do and means a lot to me!
It’s really hard to believe that back in my teens and early twenties I had perfectly clear skin. I still had oil control issues but back then I never had acne, dark spots or eczema. I definitely feel like I took that skin for granted! Especially because I didn’t use any skincare products. I literally washed my face with water and that was it (omg).
I recently learned that with skincare and makeup there are two types of products: silicone based and water based. I’ve started making the switch to all water based products, so that’s what you’ll see in the video.
Water worked for me before and it seems to be working for me again! I have read that water based products are best for combination/oily skin, which is definitely ME. Also, since I made the switch I haven’t really had an eczema breakouts to speak of. Some days my skin is a bit red on my cheeks, but it hasn’t been bumpy, itchy or anything like that.
The only truly annoying thing I have going on with my skin right now is a skin tag on my right cheek that just will not go away. I’ve never had a skin tag before so I’m not sure how long it’s going to stick around but it really needs to see it’s way out asap!
Which skincare products/brands do you love?
Do you prefer water or silicone based products?
