Unsatisfied facial routine

Hey girls, it's been several months since I last blogged. So I'm less busy now, mostly because I'm working 9-5 and have weekends free for once!

Some life update: I've moved from Pittsburgh to Mountain View, CA for the end of my capstone project for my masters degree. It's glad to be back in California!

I just came back from shopppping, I haven't been to a mall in almost half a year! So I kinda bought whatever I felt like :/. I will blog about the stuff I bought later.. after shopping I realized I really miss blogging and sharing my experiences from the products I use, so I decided to start up again. Most of the stuff I bought were skin care things, so stay tuned!

Anyway, I was continuously breaking out when I was in Pittsburgh. At first I thought it was the whether, but in the end I realize it was a combination of poor diet, dehydration, and lack of sleep. Being so busy made me neglect myself in that way and I really should've prepared for it. I also realized that dairy makes me break out and now I'm trying to cut dairy out of my diet. I knew I was lactose intolerant but didn't know that it also affected my skin.

Anyway, coming back to California, I have more time to be aware of my body, therefore I want to take care of my skin more.

After the move back here, I had to throw a lot of products away due to lack of space.. travelling some thousands of miles wasn't really fun. When I arrived to California, I wanted to use up some of the stuff I bought but didn't really use:

Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash: redness soothing
I bought this because I have red blemishes from spots that were healing and wanted to subdue it. I used it for a week and didn't really like it because it didn't really 'foam' as a cleanser. It was like a lotion consistency. I tried using it again after running out of a different cleanser, but I still don't like it enough that I had to buy a new different cleanser.

nice tingly feeling after use

doesn't really do anything for the redness
leaves a residue feeling on the face
doesn't feel like it 'cleans'
