I've tried every kind of skin care. I have mixed and matched, used entire sets, I've tried everything from wipes to cleansers to weird foams and masks. When it comes to cleaning my face, I've decided the easier, the better. I'm much more likely to do a full face regimen if it only takes a few steps.
When I visited Japan, one of the hotels we stayed in gave me small packets of face care products for each night of our stay. The packets included cleansing oil, which I had never used. I couldn't read the instructions (which were in Japanese) so I kind of guessed. I loved the way it made my face feel though, so I've been interested in trying cleansing oil ever since.
Burt's Bees recently came out with an all-natural, delicious smelling cleansing oil and I wanted to give it a try. I found it at Target in the "natural beauty" aisle, which is just a few aisles past the make up and face care aisles. You'll find everything Burt's in this section, from soaps to lotions to that lipgloss we've been using since 7th grade! They've always made products that make the most out of what nature gave us, giving your skin nutrients and skipping the chemicals. While I was there, I also picked up the brightening toner while I was there, because I like a set from the same brand. Every good cleanser needs a great toner!
So remember how I said I need an easy nightly routine? Here's how it goes down:
Start with dry hands. This is where I went wrong when I tried the Japanese products; I tried to apply it like a normal cleanser. With cleansing oil, you apply to dry hands and massage into your (dry) face. It did an amazing job of removing all of the dirt and makeup naturally and leaving everything feeling smooth.
Step 3 looks very similar to Step 2: you just add water. Scoop a little water with your hands and continue to massage the water and the oil into your skin. After that, you'll move on to Step 4: Rinsing.
After patting your face dry, it's time to add toner. I love a good toner, since they tighten skin and get rid of any extra makeup and dirt you may have left behind. This one smells like daisies! It's the perfect complement to the cleansing oil before bed.
Final step: CLEAN SKIN. See how mine is glowing? That's not photoshopped, it's just how it looks after using these products! I've been using them all week and love the soft, smooth feel of my skin. I know the word "cleansing oil" is scary; most people assume it will leave skin oily. What it does instead is moisturize and cleanse the skin so it feels fresh and soft, with no oil or dirt left behind! It honestly feels super soft before you even apply a moisturizer or serum, which is why I'm going to become one of those people that swears by my cleansing oil routine.
