The most important products that I own are my skincare products. I have oily, acne-prone skin, which I’ve tried many products for in the past. The ones that I currently use have been my staples for the past six months, and I would recommend each and every one of them!

Daily Skincare Routine

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes

In the evenings, I always start off my skincare routine by removing my makeup. I’ve been using the Neutrogena Makeup Remover wipes for a little over a year. They are so easy to use and I’m able to get all my makeup off quickly! I love that I’m able to use them on my eyes and face and not have to use two different makeup removers!

Unfortunately, I do think these irritate my skin, but I’ve tried a few different wipes and they all do the same thing. I used to love oil removers, so I may end up switching up my makeup remover soon!

Daily Skincare Routine


After my makeup remover (or if it’s the morning, this is my first step), I start with the Proactiv+ line. I’ve already done a full review on Proactiv+, and it’s my staple product of my skincare routine! I love the Proactiv brand, and have been using it for over 10 years! I switched to Proactiv+ a while back, and have loved using it. My skin does really well it, and it helps with my acne-prone skin! I won’t be switching off of this anytime soon!

Daily Skincare Routine

Up & Up Acne Spot Treatment

I usually try to keep some sort of acne treatment in my drawer, and this is the one I’ve been using for the past few months! It’s the off-brand for the Clean & Clear Spot Treatment. I used to only use benzoyl peroxide treatments, but I noticed a big difference once I switched to something with salicylic acid. If I have a breakout, this keeps it under control and starts healing it right away. I always put this on right after Proactiv+ and before I apply my moisturizer!

Olay Total Effects Eye Treatment

I’ve always used an eye cream, but this is another product that I always like to try something new! I picked the Olay Total Effects Eye Treatment up in January and I’m really enjoying it! It leaves my eyes feeling hydrated and comfortable! I don’t really have horrible dark circles or wrinkles, but my eyes have always been really dry! I always look for something that is super moisturizing, but doesn’t irritate the skin around my eyes anymore than what it already is! I use this eye cream before I apply moisturizer, so that I get the full benefits of the eye cream (instead of the moisturizer sinking in around the eyes).

Daily Skincare Routine

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream

The Ultra Repair Cream from First Aid Beauty ranks as my favorite moisturizer! I have a full review up on this and can’t recommend it enough! It’s the perfect moisturizer no matter what skin you have! I use this year round and have no issues anytime of the year! This moisturizer is created with awesome ingredients, which help to calm the skin and keep it comfortable. I always use this at the very end of my routine to lock everything in!


Aquaphor is one my favorite products to use in the evening! This is something that is somewhat new to my routine, but I absolutely love it! My main use for this is as chapstick! It keeps my lips SO hydrated! However, I also use this on dry skin and acne. If I have any dry patches, I put a dab of this on and it helps to rehydrate the skin overnight. With the same idea, I use this on acne to help the healing process! I find that the added moisture really helps to treat and heal any breakouts! I love it!

My skincare routine may seem a bit extensive, but it’s what works for my skin! If you have any similar issues, I would recommend every product that I currently use!
