What I Love Wednesday: Skin Care Routine

I have been on the search for months for a new skin care routine that would suit my skin after baby. When I was younger, I had acne and problematic skin and was always looking for new solutions, and then in my adult age I used Acutane and it had completely cleared up my skin leaving the nice, healthy looking skin I had always wanted. Then, baby. Acne problems started appearing again, my skin lost its 'glow' and I felt like I was back at square one. It has become a challenge to find something that was friendly to my skin but also helped keep breakouts in check and wouldn't dry out my skin or leave it to oily. 

My husband has always been a huge fan of Kiehl's skin care and would always encourage me to try their products out. I have tried a few here and there, but would often just stick to what I knew and had always used. Over the last year in my search to try new products, I had never even thought to try out Kiehl's because I never realized they had an acne treatment line. After speaking to their specialist I was excited to try their product!

I have been using Kiehl's Blue Herbal Gel Cleanser and Herbal Moisturizer for a few months now and have been so happy with the way it has improved my skin. I love that the ingredients are natural but that there is enough power to help with acne. The products are oil-free but don't leave my skin dry or thirsty looking, and they are great with oil control. I use both products morning and night and follow it up with the Gentle Eye Makeup Remover so I don't wake up with puffy eyes in the morning.  My breakouts have decreased and over time I am noticing my skin is slowly getting back to how it was. 

I am so excited to expand my Kiehl's collection. My husband uses almost every product in their men's line and has sworn by it for years!

What skin care lines are your favorites? I always love trying new masks and body creams. 

With love,
