Best Cleanser For My Oily Skin

This Desert Essence cleanser is my skin’s best friend. Let me preface by saying, I think it would only work for people with oily skin, despite being marketed toward those with oily OR combination skin.

I have very oily skin and it took a few weeks for my skin to adjust to this cleanser. I did not break out, but it dried out my skin a bit and I switched to using it once daily and slowly started using it twice a day.

We have been besties for 7 months now.

Also, it takes a minuscule amount of product to get the job done, which makes this amazing face cleaner even more wallet friendly.

I use this in conjunction with Josie Maran Argan Oil (my all-time favorite all-purpose moisturizer), which has made a huge difference in the appearance and texture of my skin.

The only down side, which has nothing to do with the product itself, is the faulty packaging which causes the cleanser to clog the pump and makes it difficult to dispense.

The simple remedy is to transfer the cleanser into a travel size dispenser.

Best of all, it’s not one of those products that’s marketed as healthy, but crammed with chemicals. As always, read the entire list of ingredients before purchasing.

I can’t emphasize enough how much I love this face wash. If you have sensitive, oily, acne-prone skin…give this natural cleanser a try. 

Btw: iherb now has an app~~

Anyway! I highly recommend this product. It has helped soooo many of my blemishes to disappear much faster than normal. Although I don’t like popping pimples, if it so happens that I need to, then I apply this afterwards, then it is gone in a day or 2 (3 at the max) depending on the size. Still experimenting but I really think all the products I got from desert essence have helped my skin a lot.

The face wash, tea tree oil, and this blemish touch stick have been ah-maxing to have. All by desert essence and affordable on iherb.

I’m ordering 2 more to have on hand. 1 for just in case so I don’t run out and 1 for Ys cause he’s so stressed, poor thing, has broken out. So I’m hoping it helps him. If he’ll actually use it. Lol! It’s small but you don’t need much and the roll on top is helpful!

I went to the derm on Friday night and he said my skin looks so much better than 2 weeks ago. He was going to put me on 2 more (final) weeks of accutane but I asked him to hold off and see how my skin does without it. I let him know that I’m getting a tattoo this coming weekend so that’s why I don’t want it. So I’ll be going back in 2 weeks to check again and if I need it then, then I’ll start it again but I doubt I’ll need it! My skin feels and looks pretty good… But that’s just my opinion.

Anyway, my help for the day! Good luck everyone!

Yay got my iHerb package today~~

Can’t wait to wash my hair with this shampoo and conditioner!! And to try the lotion~~

I’ll probably straighten my hair tomorrow and use the protector.

I’ve been going longer and longer without washing my hair (sounds gross doesn’t it?? But feels great!!). This week I washed it last on Monday and going to wash it today so that’s 5 days. It didn’t look oily or gross at all so I guess my dry shampoo is working! My hair felt really thick this week but I think it’s because I accidentally forgot to completely rinse my hair of the pack. Haha but guess that helps?? Lol!

Any tips on making my hair healthier?
