I’ve experimented quite a bit to find the right products for my skin but I think that now I’ve nailed it. A while ago I tried & tested the Philips Visapure facial cleansing brush and paired with the right products, I created a skin care routine that works & gives me a glowing skin, take a look!
Although we’re bombarded with so many commercials on the latest skin care products I believe in the power of simplicity. I have a sensitive, oily skin and it doesn’t need 15 different products, it needs a handful to stay flawless. If you’ve found the right combination that works for you, I’m sure you’ll agree.
Daily Skin Care Routine
1. Gamila Secret Cleansing Bar Precious Pomegranate
I use the Gamila Secret Cleansing Bar once a day, at night. What I love about this product is that it contains natural ingredients and since it’s not liquid, it’s perfect for travelling. I usually cut a piece to take with me when I’m travelling. It works both for removing make up and cleansing your skin. If you have make up on, use it twice. First to remove the make up and then to cleanse your skin. It leaves my skin cleansed without feeling ripped from all its moisture.
The Philips Visapure brush gives my skin a soft cleansing while massaging it at the same time. Although there are 5 different brushes I use the regular one which is suitable for oily, combined to normal skin. If you have a sensitive or extra sensitive skin they also have a brush for that!
I use it once a day, at night, after I removed my make up and cleansed my face with the Gamila Secret Cleansing Bar Precious Pomegranate, in combination with The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil. I think cleansing oils are gentle to my skin and paired with the soft cleansing of the brush it works best. You can remove your make up and cleanse your skin at the same time with the Visapure but I prefer doing it twice.
The Philips Visapure Facial Cleansing Brush rotates in a gentle motion in 3 periods and then it stops. After approximately 1 minute it stops and starts again so you know when to switch the area on your face. I start with my right cheek and then move unto my chin & nose, left cheek and finish with my forehead. After this I rinse my face and the brush.
It’s very effective at cleansing my skin. Sometimes I don’t even feel it’s needed to scrub my skin as using this on a daily basis has helped narrow my pores and getting that flawless complexion I have been seeking.
3. The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil
Cleansing oils are the best and suit all skin types. It cleanses gently while moisturizing at the same time. Since it’s so gentle I use it both in the morning and at night. At night pairing it with the Philips Visapure Facial Cleansing Brush works the best.
4. Argan Oil
I finish with a few drops of Shazara argan oil to moisturize my skin. It’s absorbed very quickly and nourishes my skin both in warmer and colder seasons. If you haven’t discovered the wonders of argan oil read this post
Scrubbing & Cleansing
1. Baking Soda
Baking soda has many wonderful benefits and it has become an essential product in my household and daily ritual. When it comes to my skin I like to mixed it up from time to time and scrub my face with argan or olive oil and a teaspoon of baking soda. I gently scrub my face and afterwards I rinse it. If you’re skin is sensitive, baking soda might be too harsh for you but pairing it with a nourishing oil counters that in my opinion.
Philips Visapure also has special brushes for exfoliating and deep pore cleansing. For some skin types it works perfectly and this can be used once a week instead of a scrub to remove those dead skin cells.
2. Ziaja Ulga, Peeling Enzymatyczny
Although you probably can’t understand anything of the above except for the word peeling know that it’s a peeling I discovered in Poland . It’s a quality product for a very budget friendly price and it works like a mild Enzyme peeling. Once a week (or every two weeks if I use the baking soda scrub) I apply the Ziaja peeling. I leave it on for 5-10 min and then rinse it with tepid water. My skin feels clean, fresh, but not ripped.
3. Boots Ionic Clay Mask Shine Away
The clay mask is a timeless product that works wonders for normal, combined and oily skin. Once every two weeks I use the Boots Botanics Ionic Clay Mask Shine Away after my scrub to deeply cleanse my skin and remove impurities. I leave it on for 10-15 minutes and then remove it with tepid water. A lot of clay masks that I tried in the past would cleanse my skin so deep that it dried it out. The Boots Ionic Clay Mask cleanse it but without drying it which is why I’ve decided to stick to this one. The 100 ml package also make it travel proof
Creating a skin care routine that works for you takes some time and experimenting. I’m happy with the products I have now and I’m sure it will evolve from time to time but for now this works
