My Skin Care Routine

This post is not sponsored by The Body Shop. I just love the products so much and wanted to share them. 

As I was thinking about sharing this information, it dawned on me that I posted this almost 7 years ago on my Jogging Concierge blog! I guess it shows that the products have really been working and I haven’t deterred from them since. Below is the text from that post:

Yesterday I was talking to my colleague about the store The Body Shop and I was raving about their Aloe face line. (The Body Shop did not contact me to give a product review; I just love these products so much I had to share it!) I have probably the most sensitive skin ever and I used to have the worst acne. It was dry in the winter and oily in the summer. I was on doctor-prescribed pills and face creams and it was never able to clear up my redness or breakouts. I even went on ProActiv but they instruct people to use it twice a day and it was way too abrasive for my face. I felt like it was burning my skin off (seriously). I tried Acne Free from the drugstore, Neutrogena, St. Ives, Clean & Clear; none of it seemed to work. It always irritated my face.

So then I was on the hunt for something that was made for sensitive skin. I don’t know what prompted me, but I ended up at The Body Shop. I saw they had a line of Aloe Products that included a cleansing foam, toner, exfoliater, and day cream. I scooped everything I could and even signed up for their membership card so I could continue to accumulate points and receive free products.

The products made a difference immediately. My red spots disappeared and I only get random pimples here or there but never to the extent that I used to. I can confidently walk around without makeup which was very rare for me. So if you have sensitive skin I would definitely recommend The Body Shop!!

Below are the products that I use daily.

In the morning, I use the Calming Foaming Wash while in the shower. When I’m getting my face ready (before I apply make-up), I use a cotton pad to wipe the Calming Toner on my face. Then I finish off with the Soothing Day Cream. At night, I wash off the make-up and apply the Soothing Night Cream. It’s a little bit thicker than the day cream, and it makes my skin feel soft and nourished.

And this is my face today! Very little redness and virtually no pimples. I don’t know if genes play in to things but I think these items have certainly helped in making sure my skin stays healthy and taken care of. 🙂 Don’t mind the chipped front tooth; I have to figure out if I can afford to get that fixed!
