daily stuff

Boots Botanicals Complexion Refining Toning Lotion, Skin79 Super BB in Pink, LUSH Tea Tree Water Toner 

These are the products I've been using for the past month or so; I'm going to knock on wood later but I've finally found some products that work with my difficult skin ^^

Boots Botanicals Complexion Refining Toning Lotion
Most toners are too harsh for me, because they contain alcohol and other chemicals; since this was a toning lotion, it was less drying and did help in absorbing oil. It did an okay job at complexion refining, and pore minimizing! I dab it on with cotton pads in the morning before BB cream and at night under a mask (Queen Helen's Mint Julep Mask, as intro'd by Wrinkled Noses)

Skin79 Super BB in Pink
I've been using this BB cream since December and it hasn't contributed much to breakouts; but compared to my previous makeup free skin..my skin is a lot more sensitive now. But on the brightside, it provides pretty good coverage and can be used as concealer. So far, between this and the Skin79 Super BB in Orange, the Pink clogs my pores less.

LUSH Tea Tree Water
I posted this before but wanted to follow up. I don't use this over my face anymore, because it caused red patches in my skin as a reaction; but i do use a cotton swab. After picking at pimples (I know, gross) I dip the cotton swab into the Tea Tree and apply to the wound. Most of the time it keeps it from getting infections and swelling.

I love this face wash! I also heard about it from Oiseau88 who has a similar skin type. It lathers up really well and makes your skin feel tight after using. I've been using the same bottle for about 2 months, day and night and it hasn't run out. I can't say much about its whitening properties though.
