Skincare is so important and any little breakouts here and there can definitely be a pain. Before I gave birth, skincare was really one of the last things I had to think about besides the usual face cleanse and scrub. Clear skin came naturally for me so when I did face my first breakout, it was annoying. But after trial and error, I found solutions that worked for me, and a few of them were products from the SheaMoisture skincare line.
The African Black Soap with Shea Butter, Raw Shea Butter Soap, and the African Black Soap Facial Wipes have been my must-haves from SheaMoisture. I’ve been facing problems with my skin since being pregnant with my now 9-month-old and finding the right products that don’t irritate my skin are a must. I’ve been completely focusing on products with natural ingredients and SheaMoisture is a company that is created with natural products. Growing up, I never paid attention or realized the importance of actually reading labels and ingredients, and I cannot stress enough how it makes a difference. I’ve changed up my nighttime routine so much to try and find something that fit and didn’t dry my skin out overnight or lead to major peeling in the morning. So, the past few months my routine has been consistent and I’ve seen a major difference in my skin.
My Nighttime Skin Care Routine with SheaMoisture
I start off by using the SheaMoisture African Black Soap Facial Wipes and, depending on the night, I switch between the SheaMoisture African Black Soap with Shea Butter or the SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Soap. Both are great but for me give different results for my skin depending on what I’m looking for.
I use the clarifying Wipes first to easily remove makeup & dirt from my skin, and it doesn’t call for rinsing or drying immediately after. So, if I am not going to bed right away and just wanted to unwind for the day by removing my makeup, this super easy and low maintenance task does everything I need in a matter of minutes.
One of my favorite things about the Wipes is that they are filled with African Black Soap and Tea Tree Oil to help balance my oily skin for a clearer appearance. It also contains Calendula Oil to calm and soothe my skin. After one use my skin feels balanced, refreshed and soothed.
I then usually follow with the SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Facial Bar Soap but depending on the day I opt for the African Black Soap. What I love about the Raw Shea Butter Soap is that it’s completely organic and designed for sensitive skin. Since having our little one, I can be honest and say I’ve had the weirdest things be off with my body and slowly after a few months be normal and one of them was my skin. Sensitive couldn’t even explain what was happening because I was breaking out from everything and it became a little overwhelming. With the help of products like SheaMoisture and patience, I’m almost back to where I started but it has honestly taken time. Plus, I’ve gotten my husband on board and he loves that the SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Facial Bar Soap has a fresh unisex scent so he’s not thinking it’s a “woman’s soap.”
Then, when complete, I usually throw my SheaMoisture Black Soap Clarifying Facial Wipes into my work bag, especially days I’m stopping by the gym for a workout. It helps clean off the excess sweat and dirt I’ve worked up from not only the workout, but throughout the day.
