After polling you earlier this week on whether or not I should write reviews and recommendations on the products I use, I decided to just go ahead with the new column. The title for it is kind of lame, but it was the best thing I could think of in less than a minute. I don’t eat breakfast and it’s usually because I’m too busy with my morning routine. Don’t get this confused though – I’m not high maintenance and I promise you that my morning routine involves more than just putting makeup on my face. In this series, I will introduce the products I use almost daily (sometimes not) and in the order that they are used in. The other day, I highlighted my Chanel compact and new foundation brush and that is usually a step found later on in the process.
Product: Clean & Clear Morning Burst Skin Brightening Facial Cleanser
Been Using It For: 4 months
How Did I Find It?: In Feb 2011, I had a brief stint as a Clean & Clear Brand Ambassador with Teen Vogue and they sent me over a package of goodies including this facial cleanser! I was more obsessed with the FlipCam at first so I disregarded the products for a long time until I decided to give this one a try. Before using this facial cleanser, I wasn’t really using anything else besides soap and water. I’m just simple like that I guess. These days, I can’t get enough of it. The cleanser has a refreshing (but not too powerful) lemon scent and caffeine, which means using it in the morning wakes me right up! Usually products that smell too strong give me headaches and the same goes with consuming caffeine, but surprisingly these two don’t conflict. After using it, my face is soft and my skin can breathe, which is the foundation of what I am looking for in a facial cleanser.
