5 New to Me Skincare Products

5 New to Me Skincare Products

Why, hello there. Buckle up, grab a coffee, and prepare your wallets. You, me, and my (hopefully) shrinking pores are talking skincare:

Dr. Brandt pores no more Pore Purifying Cleanser

Price Range: $30-40

Use: AM and PM

Review:

  • Very gentle and it lathers, which makes washing my face feel more luxurious than usual. Yes, I said ‘luxurious.’

  • I used a few mini samples from Dr. Brandt months ago and absolutely fell I love. I swear by my Cetaphil cleanser, but I have been supplementing it with Pores No More before bed.

  • Is it making my pores smaller? I read an article about how your pore size can't really be altered, but removing dirt from your pores can make them appear smaller. Gross and weird, I know, but it's true. I would say this cleanser is doing a decent job cleaning my pores. My skin feels better, which is a plus.

Nassif MD Detox Pads

Price Range: $30-40

Use: 2x a week-2x per day depending on skin sensitivity

Review:

  • I ran out of toner and received this in my Fab Fit Fun box - perfect timing. The 'suggested use' on the side of the product initially made me nervous. It advises that you use 2x a week to start and then build up to daily use (2x per day). If you have sensitive skin, it suggests that you leave it at once a week. Eek!

  • I use once a day after I remove my makeup and I haven't had any issues yet. I don't know if I'll try for twice a day with my sensitive (ish) skin.

Kopari 'Save Face' Oil

Price Range: $40-50

Use: AM and PM

Review:

  • This is probably my favorite new product that I've tried recently. I just learned to apply facial oil after cream moisturizer and my world has been significantly rocked.

  • It smells lovely and subtle and my husband has nicknamed me 'candy face' because of the smell.

  • A little on the pricier side for me, but this puppy is worth it. It makes my skin so soft. I’ve been using it every morning and night since it arrived.

Intelligent Nutrients Refining Micro Polish

Price Range: $50-60

Use: 'Gentle enough to use everyday,' 2x a week

Review:

  • This exfoliator is unlike any that I've tried. It's a cream, yet has a bit of a gritty texture to it. Completely bizarre, but also gentle and fabulous and it works.

  • I wouldn't say it's a need-to-have, but it's an amazingly justified want (for anyone like me who is trying to remove the most stubborn acne scarring).

Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Moisturizer

Price Range: $60-70

Use: AM and PM

Review:

  • Everyone sings Drunk Elephant's praises, so I jumped at the chance to try a Sephora sample. I only have a tiny jar of this moisturizer, so I haven't been using it consistently for months to see the insane results everyone has been squawking about.

  • I'm still tracking to see if it reduces my acne scarring (not too much change as of yet). In the meantime, it's at least hydrating. But, I had a bit of a breakout after two days of use. Could it be this moisturizer?! I’m not a fan.

If you asked me for my top 2 from all of the newness I’ve tried, it would be Dr. Brandt pores no more Pore Purifying Cleanser and Kopari 'Save Face' Oil. Both very, very worth the money seeing as you can use them AM and PM. Catch my tried and true skincare products here and my favorite daytime moisturizers right here. By request, I’m working on my nighttime moisturizers and masks post for you, so stay tuned xx
