again, like i mentioned before, i am soo not brand loyal. however, i have found a brand that i can’t imagine abandoning.
surviving a 13 hour shift is a lot to ask of any makeup, but i’m telling you…this stuff does.
MAKEUP FOREVER. it really is makeup, forever. this combo has been a game changer for me.

although i am so not the kind of girl who is brand-loyal, i’ve recently found a routine that really seems to work for me.
step 1: laura mercier face polish
gosh, i really love this stuff. just enough scrub without ripping your skin apart.
step 2: murad clarifying cleanser
again, LOVE IT. fights breakouts without over-drying and setting my skin on fire.
step 3: murad exfoliating acne treatment gel
this stuff makes your face as soft as a baby bottom. i swear.
step 4: algenist regenerative anti-aging moisturizer
plenty of moisture with no greasy or oily feeling. ever.
also, here are a few of the things i use on a more sporadic basis:
dial antibacterial bar soap:
i know this seems totally weird, but after 12 hrs at the hospital i’m in serious need of killing germs-even on my face.
murad acne spot treatment:
for when life, or being a girl, wins.
jergens all-purpose face cream:
for the depths of winter. sister pixi actually uses this all the time, but its a little too much for my sensitive skin everyday.
murad clarifying mask:
i use this once a week or so to get rid of any leftover impurities.
as you can see, i really adore the murad acne complex line. it keeps breakouts at bay without over drying and makes my skin super soft and smooth. a perfect canvas for my daily makeup routine!
