Favorites - Day 1 - Skincare

Hey everyone!! Gabbz and I were brainstorming one day and we both decided we wanted to do a week of favorites from skincare to nail art.

So to kick off Day 1 we have for you our favorite facial cleansers.

I just recently found my favorite cleanser at Lush. I am beginning to have an obsession with this store, it's getting pretty ridiculous. First it was their face mask and lip scrub, now I have fallen in "Lush" with their cleanser. Now before we get into it, Lush has different cleanser's for different skin types, so make sure you either go to their website or go to your local store and ask the staff because they are really knowledgable and can help you find the one that would best suit your skin type. I tend to have acne and redness in my skin so I went with Aquamarina. This cleanser looks weird because it is actually wrapped in seaweed. You can go here and see what I mean. It kind of looks like a sushi roll haha. I didn't buy a whole slab of it, I just got a piece of it and it only cost me $12.96 without tax. It's packed with great nutrients that help soften and calm your skin like calomine and aloe. All you do is take a pea sized amount and mix it with water and rub all over your skin and rinse. It definately made my skin feel clean. Like I said before, it looks and smells weird at first but after using it for a week now I love it. My Mom even noticed that using the cleanser paired with their face mask is helping my skin.

So one of my favorite cleansers hands down is Purity by Philosophy. Mind you, I still use other drugstore brands to help with acne, but Purity is my fave. I love that it's gentle and doesn't irritate your eyes. It really makes your skin feel really soft. I especially like that it removes all makeup left behind from a makeup removing wipe. It even removes pesky waterproof mascara and eyeliner effortlessly. I know I sound like an infomercial, but I just love it. I have nothing bad to say about this product, I highly recommend it.

So now that you've seen our favorites what are some of yours? We would love to get your feedback :)
