It's been about 8 weeks since I started using TULA in my skin care routine and I wanted to give you an update on a seriously honest level. You can read my first post here but basically, I've been having a lot of trouble with my skin again and I was wanting to introduce something new to help combat the blemishes. I'll outline below what I'm doing and how I think it's progressed over time.
TULA Purifying Face Cleanser- So good! I use this am and pm and love how it lathers and really deep cleans my face, removing all makeup. The smell is divine and this bottle has lasted so well because a little goes a long way. This will definitely be purchased time and time again.
TULA Hydrating Day & Night Cream- Also really love this! It's not overly creamy and oily but a good combination of something I would say is "whipped" in texture. I always have issues with moisturizers and breaking out and this hasn't done that to me once.
Ezna Essentials Spot Extractor- I use this when I have flare ups under my make up. It's aggressive and gets the job done.
IT Cosmetics Anti-Aging Ultra Hydrating Sensory Awakening Primer Serum- I'm on the fence about this one. I love the smell and hydration it gives when I'm extra dry but I don't know if it is causing more flare ups because it's an oil base or if it's in my mind. Have you used it? Love it? Hate it? Suggestions on how to apply? I am doing this as a last step before bed.
TULA Exfoliating Treatment Mask- If you buy one thing TULA, let this be it! It's the holy grail product of their line (imo) because it is such a lux mask that really dig deep and cleans out my pores while giving a nice, soft exfoliation when removing it. I also use it to spot treat at bed time on zits with a Q-tip.
I've also rotated this illuminating serum which is nice but not something I'm like OMG, you must try it! You know? Lastly, this eye cream has been used here and there too but again, I'm not sure I'm noticing a difference and maybe I should've been more aware of how horrendous my eyes looked before introducing it. ;)
I also started using a lot of IT Cosmetic products (post here) and I found one that doesn't quite mesh well for me. The guy on the left (below), Bye Bye Redness happens to be the holy grail and my total favorite buuuut it causes me to break out. It's the only product by IT I'm having troubles with so I've removed it from the daily routine. I love the coverage and feel of it so I make an exception and only wear it when I know I want a flawless face and deal with a flare up after. To combat those zits after the fact, I spot treat using a Q-tip with this mask by TULA and it's gone within 1-2 days!
I see my dermatologist twice a month and she's been rotating chemical peels and microdermabrasion which I also think it making my skin smoother and just more youthful to the eye. I feel it's really made a positive change over the last 2 months doing this entire routine, as a whole. From the before pictures, you can definitely see the larger, red blemishes and a lot of black heads but now, I'm more cleared up and smooth in appearance.
