Taking you back to my younger days, when I was negligent of my skin. I had zero knowledge and understanding of what beauty is. Through so many failed attempts using beauty products that I did not care to investigate about, a bad breakout that lasted long, I decided it was time to get help. I was ready to learn more and start a skin care routine. I did a test from a Clinique expert and found out that I had a combination oily skin. Meaning that my face skin can be dry in some parts, like for instance the cheeks, but very oily and shiny on the forehead which is known as the T-zone. I purchased the Clinique’s 3-Step Skincare products for Combination Oily Skin.
During the time I was using the Clinique’s 3-Step Skincare, I noticed some drastic changes. I learned the importance of taking care of my skin. One thing I know for sure is that taking care of your body has a great impact on your skin. Eating healthy, exercising, having enough sleep and the drinking lots of water helps keep your skin looking not only vibrant but also healthy.
After years of using Clinique products, I felt the urge to switch products. I wanted to give myself the freedom of trying different brands. The list below is just a few of the products that I’m currently this spring.
NYX Soft Matte lip cream
I discovered this NXY Copenhagen soft matte lip creme last year when I saw Stephanie of Stephy-lately wearing it. I instantly fell in love with how light weight it is. It has a smooth finish and stays for long without having to do so many retouches. It’s a perfect color for Autumn but I do love wearing it all year long.
NYX Liquid Foundation
I like a foundation that gives me a good coverage without looking like I have layers of cake on my face. The finish is not that matte and it does not leave my skin looking flat. Though, I do get very oily on my T-zone after a long day and have to use a napkin to minimize the shine. The results from this foundation are amazing and also pocket-friendly if you are on a budget.
IDÉAL CAPITAL SOLEIL SPF 50
Axel mom gave me a bottle of this sunscreen. I don’t like the fact that it makes me look pale but other than that, it does a fantastic job. I let it sit for 10-20 mins before I apply my foundation. The bottle looks tiny, but it lasts for months.
Clarins Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm
This is an expensive lip balm, but I was so happy to get it on the winter sales a couple of months ago. It is non-sticky and moisturizing. I’ve started to apply a bit on my lips before applying my matte lipsticks. It leaves my lips smooth.
Pure Clay Exfoliating Cleansing Gel
I bought this product out of curiosity. It’s over three weeks since have been using it, and I can see a difference. Love how it leaves my skin feeling so smooth and fresh.

NYX Dewy Setting Spray
I have used this setting spray for over a year now, and It leaves me with a dewy and fresh natural glow on my face. I’m planning to try the matte version of this setting spray soon.
So, there you have it. A few of the beauty products that I am currently using this Spring.
