I found this cleanser on a whim…I was really annoyed having tight skin every time I washed my face. I was looking for something gentle yet efficient and stumbled upon this baby; been using it for 5 months now and I can honestly say that this is MY cleanser…I ain’t using anything else, ever!
The Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser is absolutely wonderful. Why??? Because of its low pH for one and it has tea tree oil for two. Tea tree oil is an amazing anti-inflammatory and antiseptic product; it helps tremendously with acne-prone skin as it heels wounds and cuts. So, this cleanser has a particular smell but it’s not invasive, because it smells like tea tree but ever so slightly. This cleanser’s natural ingredients are gentle but super effective. What I like about this cleanser in particular is that the low pH of 5.0-6.0 is optimal for the skin because it restores its balance and helps to reduce irritations. It’s so gentle you barley notice it deeply cleansing your skin! It gently removes build-up of sebum and dead skin cells. I know it is to be used in the AM only, as it is written on the bottle, but that doesn’t stop me for using it in the PM as well. And, what’s even more awesome is that it’s pretty affordable (12.38$ on Amazon). This cleanser is bomb, seriously.
I have used COSRXproducts before and never have been disappointed. I am super happy with the fact that it doesn’t leave my sensitive skin tight or dry. I use it hand in hand with my FOREO brush and this is what I will be using for a while. I am very very satisfied and will not change it.
If you have sensitive acne-prone skin, then this is your guy!
Yesterday I shared my September fashion favorites and today I wanted to share my top 5 beauty favorites of the month. Products I have been giving extra love to. Although this month has been really rough on my skin, I have managed to keep things under control. For some weird reason, my skin is super super dry, which means it’s super prone to crack and break, which in turn mean it’s super prone to breaking out because dirt get in easy. This leads to me talk about my first favorite because it sincerely saved me from turning into a pizza face again.
GM Collin’s Hyrdamucin Optimal Serum
This literally saved my scaly flaking skin! It made my skin’s textured less abrasive and less bumpy. My skin was lacking loads of moisture and this serum helped in restoring it. The serum is not too heavy and it has a gel consistency. It sinks into the skin beautifully, does not leave any oily residue and smells super wonderful. This is perfect for all skin types and is beneficial to drier skins because it reinforces the skin’s moisture barrier by hydration. The long lasting moisturization increases the skin’s ability recover and bam!!! you get smooth and healthy looking skin. I got this baby for about 65$ CAD but you can find it on AMAZON for a little cheaper.
Regenerative Nourishment Serum-in-Oil
A super little product! It does what it promises to do. It totes rescues the hair and restores its healthy appearance. IT makes the hair so soooofft!!! I cannot tell you enough how soft my hair has become since using this. After I wash my hair, I spread three to four pumps of serum-in-oil between my hands and run them through my hair; I usually like to concentrate on the tips (which are usually the most damaged). The little bad boy is a savior! You should try it and you will not regret it. And it’s not expensive! You can buy this in any pharmacy or right here.
Tea Tree oil
Coming back to my naughty face…this little potent monster was a must for me this month. It kept the little white heads at bay and helped heal pimples without damaging my skin. When I say it’s potent, I mean it! And you need to be careful using this because it could damage you skin instead of helping it. I usually like to put some tea tree oil on little cotton pad, breaking it with warm water, and then leave the wet pad on the affected area for a little bit. You’ll see that you wake up the next morning and the stubborn pimples say goodbye. You can get this at any pharmacy and it’s not pricey or you can shop for some at AMAZON.
The perfect Bite Set & KAT VON D Studded Kiss lipstick
And the award for best lipsticks goes to the perfect Bite set and Kat Von D’s Cathedral. I am cheating here and adding 2 lip products because I have been wearing these and only these this month. Between the lip kit and the studded kiss lipstick, I haven’t done anything else. The Bite Amuse Bouche lipsticks are divine!! They’re moisturizing, they have a creamy finish and they’re simply delicious. They’re comfortable to wear all day! My favorite out of this little kit is Pepper. It ‘s like my lips but better and I love it!!! Kat Von D’s cathedral is a beautiful borwny nudeish color which I have already spoken about in a previous blog post. They’re both sample sizes and I will definitely repurchase these in full size.
Sephora’s Waterproof eye makeup remover
This is one is a solid! It removes your makeup flawlessly. Great product really. I got this as a sample but I love it so much, I might purchase this one in full size. It’s the best makeup remover I have used to date and it doesn’t hurt or irritate my sensitive eczema prone skin. A tiny amount goes a long way and it’s affordable compared to other brands I have used in the past. The Sephora Waterproof Remover gets five stars on my end.

So these are the 5…6 beauty products I have been loving this month and I will continue to use on the daily. I am not much of a makeup user but I do adore my mascaras and lip colors. You will never (or almost never) see me use foundation, because I am not interested in blurring my skin. It’s not a judgement; it’s just a question of preference. But I do love to read everyone’s reviews about them…because it keeps me abreast of what’s nice out there.
