  • Banila Co.-Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Original
    STEP
    1
    I apply waterproof sunscreen about 2-4 times a day, and this takes all of it off.  I apply it to dry skin and then remove it with water.  It has a milky wash off and my skin feels fairly clean.  I like to follow up with a second cleanse.
  • Vanicream-Gentle Facial Cleanser For Sensitive Skin
    STEP

    Pretty good for a second cleanse.  It's affordable and simple.  It is just a tiny bit drying, but I can prevent that from happening too much by using it as my second cleanse and only washing my face for about 5 seconds.  I also rub it between my hands first so that all the bubbles are made before I put it on my face.
  • CLINIQUE-Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel
    STEP
    3
    Simple, oil free and non-irritating, it's a very good match for my combo skin.  I apply it on a wet face and it is effective at locking in that moisture.  I wish I could find a more affordable dupe, honestly, but if bought during a sale, the price isn't too horrible.

Nice and simple! Have you tried using a retinol or any other type of serum?

I do try to incorporate a retinol and vitamin c serum! Even when I use twice a week (both items), my skin gets sensitized. Gah. So, I'm recovering from that and will try to reintroduce at only ONCE a week for both items! Makes me so sad bc I really want to use actives lol.
