Soooo some bad news: taking Benzoyl Peroxide down to once every two days made me break out all over my chin and jawline. Which isn’t amazing. I’m also under a lot of life stress right now between personal stuff and job stuff, and the last thing I need is to be hating the way I look on top of it all. So (for now) fuck quitting BP! I’ve already eliminated it from my cleanser and scaled the cream back to one a day, so I’m using 1/4 of what I did when I started – a huge improvement.
I still want to swap out my Proactiv Toner and Cream for the CosRX products, but honestly right now I just really need to try some more fun stuff on my skin because everything else in my life is a trash fire. So here’s what I’m going to try every couple of weeks, in order!
- Shiseido SENKA Mineral Water sunscreen every morning
- Tony Moly Dual Effect Sleep Pack every evening
- Etude House Moistfull First Essence every evening
- Etude House Moistfull Freshener (this may have broken me out before)
- Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence every evening (I got samples!)
Then I’ll have hopefully some new stuff added to my routine! At which point I’ll swap out the Proactiv Toner for my COSRX AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid and then once again start trying to remove the BP from my routine.
The thing is, I really feel like if I wean myself off the BP and replace it with stuff like COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid and Skin Food Peach Sake Toner I will be able to stay clear. But I just really cannot deal with that right now.
