Best Face Wash for 2016

A face wash can be a liquid or solid content used in cleansing a face, neck or the shoulder. Last year, I tried some of the facial wash people talked about or reviewed. I finally thought to share my experience with the different wash that I got hold of. I hope to try more this new year, to find out the best wash for different skin tones. They are affordable. So if you want to know more, continue reading…

My Best Facial Wash for 2016

My facial wash includes the Clarins Daily Energizer Cleansing Gel.

Clarins Daily Energizer Cleansing Gel

I started using Clarins products from the middle of last year. I saw on Facebook that Joy Isi Bewaji was using the Clarins skin care products and I decided to give it a try. Clarins is a well-known brand in the most western societies, mainly used by women than men. Their products may be high on the price but they offer good quality for your money. From the moment I bought this gel wash from the Clarins stand at a shopping mall, I was too enthusiastic to start using it.

I drop a small amount (very small amount) of the gel on to my Foreo Luna Cleansing Brush for Combination skin (Foreo has the cleansing brush for men). I scrub my face and rinse with a warm water every morning and evening before I go to bed. This is a good cleanser for people with oily skin and also if you live in a place with hot temperature. Buy it and you will thank me later.
Natusan Baby Bedtime Bath.

Natusan Baby Bedtime Bath

This Baby bath is perfect if you don’t want to use products that you are scared of the content, something mild for baby use. I have used this for one year and I don’t regret it. It leaves my face clean and clear, removes dirt and oil and didn’t cause any reaction to my face. I just love this Natusan Baby Bedtime Bath. It doesn’t have any perfume or alcohol, it is just made for baby use. Your skin colour remains the same, no bleaching or lightening. It is best for people who want to maintain their skin colour.
Tropical Naturals Dudu Osun Black Soap.

Tropical Naturals Dudu Osun Black Soap

This soap is made with pure natural ingredients. I borrowed the idea of using Dudu Osun as a wash from one of my SnapChat friends, Chioma. She posted a picture showing how she takes care of her face and I saw that she was using this black soap. I bought it from an African shop nearby and tried it. If you have used Dudu Osun before, you will know that it has a kind of crude smell which I didn’t like at first. I got used to the smell later on.

The soap cleanses the face but I don’t leave it on my face for too long. I noticed that when I leave for long, it start feeling scratches all over my face. So, I may doubt if the content is natural as they wrote on the box. But still, it gives my face the clean and clear look. I will advise you buy from a good shop that sells original products if you want to buy this.
L’Oréal Paris Skin-Perfecting Purifying Gel Wash.

L’Oréal Paris Skin-Perfecting Purifying Gel Wash

This is my everyday facial wash. I like this product so much. This wash may have another funny smell but the content is good. It gives this supple feeling to my face. I just use a little drop of it and it foams very well. This wash is for normal to combination skin types. It removes impurities and deeply cleanses the face or skin. I always order online for L’Oréal Paris or I go to their shop down the street where I live.

When you have a good skin without problems, you may not need to wear heavy foundation to cover your imperfect skin ( there is nothing like a perfect skin either). Again, it is important to let your face breathe once in a while, you don’t need to wear anything on your face. Just moisturise and let your face breathe. If you wear make-up almost all the time, you need a good facial wash and scrub that will help keep your face clean. You need it!

Kiehl’s Facial Care Products Review

Kiehl’s facial care products

Taking care of the face is very important, it entails finding the right facial care products for your skin tone and skin colour. Using the wrong products may leave your face in a bad state. I had problems with face while I was in Nigeria. I kept visiting different ‘dermatologist’ in Wuse Market, Abuja. On my many visits to the skin care experts, I was given different facial products to ‘try’, try this one today, then this another day. Those creams ended up turning my face like a cloth of many colours, hahaha! End of story, I had blemishes, pimples, discoloration, burns and patches on my face. When I moved abroad, I visited Ahlens Shopping mall in Stockholm. That day, a Kiehl’staff convinced me to try their product after seeing the state of my face, I was reluctant at first, but am happy that I made up my mind to try their products and I don’t regret it. So, below are the products that I use and how I use them.

L’Oréal Paris Skin-Perfecting Purifying Gel Wash

Step 1: I wash my face with the Luna Foreo for combination skin face scrub brush and the L’Oreal Paris Skin-Perfecting Purifying Gel Wash. I make sure to scrub all corners of my nose and face in a horizontal and circular gentle motion to cleanse my skin. This can take 10-15minutes.

Below is my face in the cleansing phase. Excuse my mean look, lol.

Step 2: I rinse my face with a warm water and dab the face with a clean dry towel. Dry the face by patting in gently with the towel, Don’t be rough while drying the face. Apply the Kiehl’s Tumeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque on the clean face and allow it to dry. Wear it for 10-15 minutes also. The masque has a minty and calming feeling which leaves a relieving feeling to your face.

Step 3: Warm off the masque with your finger, gently massage the masque off the face. Next use a soft face sponge with a warm water to rinse your face. Use your cotton wool and dab into the Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner to cleanse your face. Remember to do this gently, your face is delicate so you have to take care of it with care.

Step 4: I apply the Kiehl’s Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Eye-Brightening Serum under my eye to prevent puffiness and eye bags. It also helps to brighten the under eye not lighten! Not lighten! The product doesn’t lighten the under eye. I then dab the Kiehl’s Blue Herbal Spot Treatment into the little black spots on my face. I have used this product for a long time and the results is overwhelming.

Step 5: I apply the Kiehl’s Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter and Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream on my face. I massage it into the face until it disappears from the face. Next is to apply the Kiehl’s Micro-Blur Skin Perfector Primer onto the face, massaging it gently into the face also. You can use this as your makeup primer, especially if you have an oily face. I use it as my makeup primer, but it doesn’t make the foundation to stay on for longer hours like 5-8 hours.

Finally, to keep the lips supple, fresh and healthy, I use the Carmex moisturising lip balm on my lips. I have used this lip balm for awhile, it is handy and safely kept in my small purse. I use it often because of the minty feeling that warms up the lips.
