Guest Post: The Happy Sloth's Skincare Essentials

Hi everyone, my name is Jasmine and I am the author of the Canadian beauty blog called "The Happy Sloths". Today I am sharing with you a few of my skincare essentials.

When it comes to skincare, there are very few items that I like to stick with as I constantly introduce new items I find into my routine. I have combination skin and suffer from acne so it's always a struggle to keep those pesky zits at bay while avoiding drying out my skin excessively. So that was a tiny background on my skin type, now let's move on to some of the products I have been loving:

Cleansing Products:
Ever since I tried Shu Uemura's Cleansing Oil I cannot go back to any other types of make up removal products, but as you may know, the Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil costs over $70 so I was very thankful I found this lovely alternative from Sephora!
This guy removes all traces of waterproof makeup, leaving my skin free of all dirt and oils; it is the best makeup remover I have ever come across! (Link to full review.)

I started using this facial scrub mid January and have been really loving it. It leaves the skin feeling super smooth and supple and I always love a good exfoliation! (Link to full review.)

I received this travel sized gel face wash quite a long time ago in my Topbox but only recently had the chance to try it out. I really love how gentle this is on the skin, it's perfect for daily use and it is very affordable.

This one is a great clay/exfoliating mask that leaves the skin feeling refreshed. It contains ingredients that temporarily tighten the pores, making them appear smaller and the skin looking more refined. I use this once or twice every week to give my skin some deep cleaning. (Link to full review.)

Moisturizing/Treatment Products:
This ons is a great moisturizing serum/concentrate that I like to use along my jawline to combat the dryness and flakiness. It feels very light on the skin and I don't wake up feeling all greasy.

I picked up mine at my local Winners and have been using it religiously on my cuticles and this stuff is very good, it keeps them looking supple and moisturized. I have tried using the Argan oil directly on my hair and face as well but it's too heavy despite how little I put. But on the cuticles... it works magic!

A little while ago I reviewed the whole line of Exposed Skincare acne treatment products but wasn't overly impressed. However, their Moisture Complex moisturizer is one of the best moisturizer I have tried. This thing has a matte finish that doesn't feel greasy or heavy, all the while providing ample moisturization. (Link to full review.)

This is my go to acne treatment/prevention product. This product really works for me and have kept my acne fairly under control for over four years. I know a lot of people have this impression that "oh Proactive is bad for you, it doesn't work... yadayada", but I say give it a try if you do suffer from acne and it might just work for you.

This is an cooling and moisturizing roll on eye gel that I like to use in the morning. It feels so nice around the eyes and diminishes puffiness.

This is the eye cream I have been using for almost a year now. It is light and moisturizing, perfect for those looking for some early wrinkle prevention.  (Link to full review.)

So there you have it, ten skincare products I have been loving lately! I hope you enjoyed reading about them!
