I've talked about the Korres cleanser and the Burt's Bees scrub in previous monthly favorites so I'll talk about the other products.
The presence of the two night creams is because I'm almost out of the eclos Anti-Aging Moisture Therapy Regenerative Cream and have replaced it with the Yes to Cucumbers Calming Night Cream. I actually wasn't fond of the eclos cream because this, like the Benefit moisturizer, took a while for my skin to get used to and on some days it was almost painful to put on. I know, why continue using a cream that's irritating? Whelp, because I was cheap and didn't want to waste my money. I don't buy into the whole "plant stem cells" thing, but when it wasn't burning the hell out of my skin it was pretty moisturizing.
I use the Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask and while I don't notice any difference in the appearance of the pores on and around my nose, it does help with oiliness a bit. I'm not amazed by this product really, which is a bit disappointing considering it's rave reviews. But may e it's because I've only used it a handful of times, so we'll see if I change my mind.
I don't use any serums but I have been considering a toner, but even that feels like a bit too much. Because I have sensitive skin I feel like if I find a product that works and is not irritating I'll stick to it rather than trying a better product.
