*Update: August was a busy month for my little household. Some of these products will be continuing over into my September Skin Care Routine as they take a little more time and dedication to work with.**
Can you believe school starts back this week?!! I’m not sure where the summer went but I am excited to share with you all my August Skin Care Routine. I was going to do a weekly recap but decided on a monthly routine, a week isn’t really long enough to see the potential of some products/brands! I also wanted to test the theory of product usage. One thing I’ve come to notice about skin care is the more products you incorporate into your skin care routine the better looking your skin will be! I have acne prone skin and scaring from having acne as a teenager. The goal of my experiment is to find the right products and routine for my particular skin.
Keep up with my updates, good or bad, on my Facebook page or on Instagram @centsablesteals.
This months routine will consist of:
 **Updates: using a 5 point scale**
  • Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil I remember reading in an article a while back that starting your skincare routine with an oil based cleanser then follow with a regular cleanser. The article boasts that starting your skincare routine with an oil based cleanser pulls any dirt or makeup left on your skin you may not see with the naked eye. I liked the product but felt it may have been a little much for my skin.
  • Foreo Night Time Face Cleanser Foreo makes tons of my favorite products. They just recently (within the last year) have added cleansers to their skin care line. I thought that was a great move on their part considering their Luna devices are very product specific. I loved how light weight this product was!
Vanity Planet Cleansing Device this device will be carried over to my September routine.
PCA Soothing Toner
  • Derma Roller I discovered my derma roller about 3 years ago. It went a couple of years under my cabinet due to me being oblivious as to how this little device works. My derma roller will remain a part of my skincare routine until otherwise stated. A derma roller is used after washing and drying your face. You gently press the needles along your skin and roll up. Yes I said needles, no it is not what you think! Derma rolling will help face acne scares, dark spots, firm and tighten skin and more. It’s my magic facial device go to!
Foreo ESPADA Light Therapy Device (for Acne) My ESPADA will be carried over to my September Routine
  • PCA Acne Gel
  • PCA Intensive Clarity Treatment (Retinal)
  • I’m in love with all of the PCA skin care products I have with them. I discovered them from my go to spa (Smart Skin). They use the PCA products on their back bar and I’ve had nothing but amazing results with them. I will forever be a customer!
  • PTR Facial Moisturizer w/ 50+ SPF – I add my PTR Moisturizer to my skin in the mornings, when I remember. I forget to moisturize like I should but if I consistently use the PTR my skin boasts amazingly smooth results!
If there are any specific products you guys would like to see results from please drop them below or shoot me an email and I’ll see about adding them to my September Skin Care Routine.
