Face Products

A few weeks ago, on Instagram, I asked for anti-aging recommendations. I got some great tips and many of these products are on my Amazon wishlist. I had been seeing a dermatologist and he recommended Cerave. It's supposed to restore your skin's protective barrier with ceramides...whatever that means. What it lacks is exfoliation and after 2 years of using Cerave I have decided that it's not cutting it. For my current budget and imminent need I went to Target. 

I read once that many of the acne products marketed to teens are too harsh for young skin. Since I'm 30 I bore that in mind in my quest. With some stress acne poorly concealed, I walked down the overwhelming aisles of skin care products. I found a Blackhead Facial Scrub with Salicylic Acid, an Eye Lifting Serum (both by Target's up & up brand) and, since I'm using Pond's BB+ Cream I opted for Pond's Rejuveness Anti-Wrinkle Cream.

THE RESULTS: My skin is soft to the touch and I think the fine lines are smoothing out quite a bit. I may not stick with the particular brands that I'm using now but I think I've found a combination of products that will work for me and tackle my "issues." Cheers to smoother skin!

[A quick side note for those of you who are scared of the generic or off-brands: According to my dad, whose company packages things, most of the generic stuff isn't generic. Target doesn't have a factory to make their own aspirin or whatever. They're just borrowing from whomever makes Asprin. At least I think that's what's going on. Ask my dad. Anyway, generic brands are fine when it comes to stuff like this. This rule does not apply to shoes and purses.]

What do you use on your face?

This post was inspired by Dollar Shave Club. The members-only Club that ships amazing razors and other cool bathroom stuff for a few bucks a month.  


  1. Ponds cold cream, olive oil {it's the BEST eye makeup remover!}, witch hazel and a tinted moisturizer from Juice Beauty. And I scrub twice a week with an Alba Botanica scrub called "acne dote." See what they did there?

    That's it!

    1. Sounds good! I use grape seed oil to remove make up, too! I need to check out that scrub!
