My skin is pretty bi-polar, so it’s ever-changing just like the weather itself. I try to keep my routine to a minimal but sometimes that’s not even possible when you have finicky skin like mine. One day it’s oily like Crisco then the next it’s dry like the Sahara desert. I struggle daily! So if you have challenging skin like I do and need a good long wear routine, this is for you!

 All the products are listed below in the order I used them…
