So once or twice a week I do extra deep cleansing and pampering to my skin. To unclog pores and exfoliate dead skin. It's absolutely necessary with all the makeup that I do.

This isn't the order I use them in mind you.
First up I cleanse just regularly to take off my makeup and such. Then I use the REN 1 minute facial. This is not for sensitive skin. You massage it on to the skin in circular motions them wet your fingers and massage again to activate it. You then leave it on for one minute. It kinda stings or burns a little that's the Vitamin C in it. It really helps get the squeaky clean feeling and smooth the face of any texture issues. This isn't for everybody it can make the skin really sensitive after use but doesn't cause me any irritations and I always use a heavy but gentle moisturizer in the end.
Next I move on to exfoliating. I have general exfoliators that I love but the peeling gel is totally different. You start with dry skin and rub the gel onto the skin. As you rub, the gel starts to literally roll dead skin away. Like dead skin just balls up and falls off. Mind you the first time you use it it's going to be a lot if you keep it up its not going to be as much after the first initial time. I use this about once a week or anytime I notice I've got texture issues getting worse. I promise you your skin will feel so smooth. Like unbelievably smooth. After that I use pore strips. I'm prone to black heads and I have large pores. Very large pores and they are always clogged. So this is a must cause it can be noticeable under foundation even. So I use a pore strip once a week definitely on my nose and sometimes on my forehead and chin but they aren't near as bad as my nose gets.
Lastly I use the L'Occitane Immortelle Cream to moisturize. This is heavy but such a nice cream. It smells really nice too. Mine is a deluxe sample and the full size is quite expensive but I feel like it's worth it. It's not what I use every night just once a week cause it's gentle on my skin but definitely heavy and soft.
That's about it. Sometimes I use my Caudile Grape Water mist toner since its for sensitive skin. I use it if I'm still feeling a bit tingly from the facial and pore strips I use.
Goodnight my loves!
