Keeping It Simple Skin Care Products

SNORING. I don't do it, and I can't can't can't sleep with people who do. Oh, the things I do to make husband stop snoring - when he does snore, only sometimes, when he's very exhausted (Thank Goodness!) I pinch his nostrils so he'll breathe through his nose, and when I can't reach his nose, I take his hand and shake shaKE SHAKE it really hard until he stirs.
However, during the last 2 weeks, husband told me that I'd been snoring! Multiple times! So you can  imagine how exhausting it has been in MommyLand. That means I can no longer spend more than a few minutes doing my face each day, and the number of products I'm using have reduced.
Clean & Clear Makeup Dissolving Facial Cleansing Wipes, Rs.50 (7 wipes) ~ I ran out of Cleansing Oil, and my favorite MAC Cleanse Off Oil was Out Of Stock the last time, so I've been using different types of wipes & cleansing pads. These are my favorite, coz they do the job efficiently + they remove waterproof mascara as well. 
Clean & Clear Morning Energy Energizing Lemon Face Wash, Rs.99 ~  Simply, a nice refreshing facial cleanser. It is not the same as my favorite Clean & Clear Morning Energy Skin Brightening Facial Scrub, but they look and smell similar.
Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream, Rs.599 ~ I needed a new eye cream, and this has been working quite well on the fine lines under my eyes. It has Retinol & Hyaluronic Acid - two ingredients that are famous for reducing wrinkles.
ZA True White Emulsion, Rs.899 ~ I'm really liking this. It's like a serum-cum-moisturizer. It has a runny consistency and makes my skin look dewy and luminous.
La-Roche Posay Effaclar A.I. Targeted Breakout Corrector, Rs.890 ~ I couldn't rave about this little tube enough. It is my go-to when I get a horrendous pimple. I recently got a huge on my nose, and it disappeared in 2 days without any scarring.
Nivea Essential Care Lip Balm, Rs.100 (Free with a Nivea Body Lotion) ~ I was surprised how effective this is! After my delivery and stay at the hospital, my lips cracked like anything. This healed them completely.
Water ~ And lastly, good ol' H2O. Lots & LOTS of it! I think I drink about 3 liters per day.

So, that's all I'm currently using. 
No special (read: pricey) Cleanser, 
No Scrub, 
No Toner,
No Night Cream 


Good news is, my skin is doing okay. It just shows that we don't really need a lot or pricey products to maintain healthy skin.



What simple skin care products are you loving these days?


Okay, I gotta go! My son is waking up now. 
I guess now I have to keep my blog posts simple too, and I shouldn't blabber to muc....

  1. Hey CZ , I have read somewhere that retinol shouldn't be used during breastfeeding. So I recommend you to check with your doc. And yes, take care. :)

    1. Even I was going to ask the same as I read it on baby centre that retinol based products are not good for pregnant ladies n nursing moms

    2. Using a tiny amount topically everyday is fine, ladies. At least that's what I personally think. You could check with your own doctors regarding this :)

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
