Aquamoist Moisture Washing Foam with Hyaluronic Acid
Another addition to one of my many face washes. Many of you are probably wondering what actually is Hyaluronic Acid and if it’s harmful to the skin. The acid itself is perfectly harmless and is often incorporated into many skin care products to hydrate and prevent wrinkles. This particular brand is known for hydrating the skin by promoting Hyaluronic Acid. The face wash is supposed to gently wash off all oils and leave the skin feeling fresh. I did a little research and most people did enjoy this brand; however, for me, the face wash did not leave my skin feeling fresh but it did hydrate my face. I would recommend this face wash for those who are acne-free and simply need some hydration. The face wash did not remove any blemishes for me as I had hoped. As an every day use, I would give it 3 out of 5 because it does not deep clean your pores thus you would have to buy a scrub to alternate with. 
side note: I have also heard plenty of good reviews on their original moisture lotion but I have not gotten a chance to try it. Again, trying various facial products will give you a better understanding of what is best suited for your skin. Also, do not stick continuously to one brand no matter how good it may be. It is good to alternate products so your skin is not adjusted to any particular product and losing its original effect.

Pond’s Dry Skin Cream
Skin creams are often super thick and oily but this cheap jug of cream will hydrate your skin without breaking your wallet. I can say that it works almost as well as Cetaphil but less oily for the face. It can be used as a day or night cream. If you are a skin cream type of a person, then you should try it.

Kracie Naive Cleanser w/ Green Tea Extract (blackhead remover)
This is my daily cleanser. It leaves a tingling sensation after washing your face. Although it says that it helps remove blackheads, it does not have much effect on your blackheads. The downside is that this cleanser will dry out your face if you do not put moisturizer on. It does, however, if you are like me who does not have acne but have random breakouts, it will help reduce the redness and prevent breakouts from happening. You cannot use this cleanser twice a day because it is too strong for the face and will damage it. I would recommend only washing it once at night and just water in the morning. This also applies to most cleansers and scrubs as well.

removing blackheads

sorry i haven’t been posting much guys.
i’ve been kind of busy and haven’t had the time to write a review.

and instead of a regular review, i’ll do a beauty tip on removing blackheads.
egg white method:
1. separate egg yolk and egg white in two different bowls 
2. soak a cotton facial pad into the egg white (be sure to cut the pad accordingly)
3. before putting the pad on your nose, make sure you have washed your face.
4. leaving it on for about 20min
5. rinse off all the egg white on your nose and you’re done~
you will see some results but not very significant ones. this is very much like a home made pore strip. lol

bobby pin method:
1. make sure that your pores are open before attempting this (meaning that you have just taken a hot shower, washed your face with hot water, steamed your face, etc.)
2. apply pressure to the round end of an unused, clean bobby pin or a blemish remover with a round end on your nose where the black heads are and pull downwards.
3. clean the bobby pin after a couple strokes and you will see all the filth on the napkin.
4. continue on with your moisturizers etc. 
do not use it if your pores are not open or if you have very sensitive skin. it will be painful.

St. Ives Apricot Scrub
This is my favorite scrub that I use twice a week. Unlike the green tea scrub, the beads in this scrub are much bigger and it does feel like I’m washing away all the dirt. Even though the tube say it’s contains acne medication, I would not use this scrub or any scrubs if you have a lot of acne because it will be painful. The beads will scrape at your skin and it will hurt unless you are use to it. Regular cleansers would be much better for your skin. It will does reduce redness and size if you only have a couple blemishes. 
I would buy more scrubs to try except that I don’t use it on a regular day to day basis which makes it a hassle to get rid of. I am a little cautious about buying scrubs because I am lenient toward cleansers.

St. Ives Green Tea Scrub
I personally do not really like using this scrub although I like St. Ives. It actually is just sitting in my bathroom for the most part. I’m not saying that it’s the worse scrub ever but that it’s not really for me. I don’t feel like my skin is clean after washing it even though it’s oil-free. I have to say it does smell wonderful. However, I have heard that it works well with other people. I personally prefer non-scrub cleansers for daily washes. 
Cleansers/scrubs/face wash etc. are hard to give a recommendation because you really do have to try it out for yourselves to determine whether you like it or not. Every person has a different skin type and we all have different likings. Don’t go splurging on cleansers just to find the perfect one instead do a little research and see which one might be suitable for you before buying it. I bought this one without knowing that I wouldn’t like it but at least I know that scrubs are not for me.

Cetaphil Body Lotion
This is just a regular body lotion for dry, sensitive skin and I find that it works very well. You can find this one in most drugstores. It is a bit oily since it is for dry skin types. The reason I actually bought this lotion instead of my typical lotion was because I started breaking out with a rash and the rash would only appear during winter or extremely cold weathers. I found an article online describing this condition and it was said that my skin was too dry and sensitive. It started causing irritations that imitated a rash. They recommended this lotion because it was “unscented” and contained no preservatives that would irritate my skin even more. It really did wonders to my condition thus I just switched to this lotion. I have yet to try their line of skin cream and facial washes though. My friend with extremely sensitive skin uses this brand of products and she loves it. So for all you sensitive types, you might want to give this product a shot.
