Again, from my second ever VoxBox.

This is the perfect fall/winter cleanser for my kind of combination skin. I love that it doubles as a daily exfoliator.

olayclay1Hello hello!

I’d like to begin with what a terrible time Autumn is, for my kind of combo skin. It’s when my skin freaks out from the subtle change of weather, when it decides to accumulate dead skin cells (even more so than usual) and create this horny outer shell that I refuse to call skin. Leather, more like.

This type of skin makes it harder for my moisturizer to seep in, leading to less moisture in my skin, leading to more leather, more pain on my behalf.

So exfoliating “just the right amount” becomes my mission, as overdoing it causes cystic acne to pop up and overstay its welcome.

olaywhip2There are fine micropolishers within the lather of Olay Regenerist, just enough to exfoliate the skin without aggravating it.

Some exfoliators tend to cut into my skin, leaving it open for contamination, the plague, and terrible little whiteheads… but this actually cleared up my skin. Plus, my skin feels baby soft now. Love.

olaywhip3Ingredient list.

I’ve been using this for three days and already my skin feels fresher 🙂 It’s a nice morning wake-me-up cleanser/exfoliator.

olaywhip4By the way, the lather is real. A pea-sized amount suffices for my morning cleanse because it lathers up like crazy. This can will probably last me months even with daily use…

And try this as a body exfoliator when you’re taking a bath. Love the way it makes my skin feel after.

The Body Shop – Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

Price: $16 (on sale: $9.60)


Caroline Hirons turned me to this gem. I’m kinda in love with it.

I have combination skin that runs dry and oily, prone to breakouts–especially with oils. Most cleansing oils don’t work for me; even if there’s one that works, the journey doesn’t seem worth the payoff. (Those breakouts are easy to trigger but hard to exterminate)

This cleansing butter is perfect for those who’s got a love-hate relationship with oils.

camomilebutter_2Here’s the off-white miracle balm that gives in softer than real butter. It …

  • Gets make up off
  • Doesn’t leave a residue
  • Is not drying
  • Is gentle. No breakouts.

It is a bit of a hassle to manage. Your hands should be clean before touching the butter, lest you contaminate the rest.

camomilebutter_3Here’s a teeny red heart. (Cameo: BH Cosmetics Lip Liner in “Retro”) It’s cute but has to go.

Spread a mini dollop of cleansing butter on the teeny heart.

Rub gently in a circular motion for about a minute then wash off the residue. There will be nothing left behind.

For my evening double cleansing, I use this right after a swipe of Bioderma. Everything goes off and my skin is left moist, not dry.

$16 might be a tad pricey, but the Body Shop often has promotions like this where everything goes on sale (and free shipping to boot).

I often stock up on 2-3 of these during the sale. That lasts me for half a year or more.
