So I was never really that into skincare up until recently.

I was wondering what you guys do for your skincare routine. Products used (brands, etc.) and how you guys like it (would you recommend it? rate out of 5? etc.)

I don't have a skin care routine since I just use whatever I want to use at the moment but I'm hoping to just develop something as I start to care more about skincare. Usually I just wash my face with whatever facewash I want with hot water (since it opens up pores) then after I finish washing it I splash my face with cold water (to close the pores) and then apply moisturizer when needed (I know, I should really just do it all the time).
Recently I've been using products with charcoal in it. The activated charcoal is supposed to soak up the toxins or something and deep clean your pores for blackheads and whatnot.

Products:



Mandom's Charcoal Facial Scrub: I'm currently using this and I really like it. It foams up as you apply and also has little scrubby things to help scrub your face as you apply. It gives a cooling sensation as well as moisturization. I honestly can't think of any cons for this. I'd give it a 5/5.



Daiso's Charcoal Natural Pack: This is a face mask I actually only purchased today. Got it for 1.50 at the store. I read a bunch of reviews on it and people really like it so I thought I'd give it a try. I tried it earlier and it's kind of annoying to apply because it is pretty messy and pretty painful to peel off. It is a peel off mask so you have to make sure you don't get it on any hairs or you're gonna experience some serious pain and maybe some facial hair loss. I've only used it once so I don't think it's fair for me to rate this product yet.



Clinique's Moisturizing Gel: I've been using this for a while and I think it does it's job good enough. Though sometimes, I wish my skin would soak up more of this though because it doesn't get as moisturized as I wish. 3/5



Shiseido Hadasui Lotion: I've only used this a few times but I can tell you I like it more than the Clinique one. Where I purchased it, they had a bottle of 400ml and a bottle of 250ml with a spray container which was even more expensive than the 400ml one. So I bought the 400ml one and realized how great it would have been to have a spray bottle. So I just put it in a spray bottle.. no need to pay more for less! It says it's a lotion but it's more of a jelly liquid which does moisturize my face well and can also be used as a toner. 5/5

I'll post more later! Tell me your skincare routine and what products you use and recommend!

Whatever on sale weekly special, dishwashing liquid Missus Ralph happens to buy at Costco. It cuts right through the excess oil on my skin and doesn't take any bullshit from dirt or anything else that can clog pores. All those fancy face or skin care products, IMHO, is pure marketing bullshit and a huge waste of money.

I think my skin's more or less too oily to begin with, hence, drying it with grease cutters is actually beneficial so far as I'm concerned. As for Missus Ralph getting the nice dishwasher liquids? Nah... we get the cheap shit as long as it soaps up the dishes and gets rid dirt. On the other hand, she always has a whole closet of facial moisturizers, creams, and other money in a bottle stuff that I don't even know want to know about, LOL... :laugh:
