My Skin Care Routine

Products Mentioned in this video:
*Johnson & Johnson Purpose Gentle Cleansing Wash
In my video, I mentioned washing my face twice everytime I wash it (usually morning and night). I found out from my aesthetician that when you wash your face once, it kind of smears makeup, dirt, and oil around. The second wash gets deep down clean. A few days later, I read the same thing in a magazine. Try it out by using a cotton ball and some witch hazel. Wash once, then tone. Now, wash a second time and see how much cleaner the cotton ball is. Since this cleanser and the witch hazel are very gentle, it does not dry out my skin, and my skin is already on the dry side.
*T.N. Dickenson's Witch Hazel (This is typically located in the section at the store w/ alcohol, peroxide, etc., because it can also be used for insect bites, burns, etc.)
*Swiffer Cotton Balls (Yes. I am particular.)
*Olay ProX Eye Restoration Complex
*Olay ProX Age Repair Lotion
*Olay ProX Wrinkle Smoothing Cream
(3 products above are full size and come in the Olay Regenerist Anti-Aging Starter Protocol - approx. $60.00 or sold separately for around $20.00 each)
*Olay Regenerist Anti-Aging Eye Roller
*Neosporin Lip Health SPF 20
*Essence of Beauty Foundation and Concealer Brush (purchased at CVS)
*Neutrogena Makeup Remover Towelettes
*Neutrogena Healthy Skin Rejunator
*Neutrogena Ageless Intensives Line (I will be doing a comparison on this VS. the Olay ProX)
*Nivea Body - Natural Tone SPF 4
*Aveeno Active Naturals Theraputic Shave Gel (This really works for my sensitive bikini area.)
*Gillette Venus Embrace (Also great, it has 5 blades!!)
