PM skincare routine:

My evening skincare regimen:

For those who don't know my skin type: it's combo/dry, with some oily areas on my t-zone in the summer. I did experience breakouts, primarily on my forehead and jawline. I've been to dermatologists, only for them to recommend a glycolic cleanser and retin-A, which made my skin worse. After trial and error, this has been the best for my acne, without drying me out. 

Check out the video:

  1. Just a quick question…when you use your vip o2 cleanser, do you use dry hands/dry face or do you wet your face and use it? I recently purchased this and used it tonight for the first time and when I used it on my wet face it kind of felt like it disappeared! Didn't know if I should be using it on dry skin and then rinsing it off! Thanks :)

    1. I do either method. The cleanser does do a disappearing it turns clear but you should still feel a slight film on your face when you glide your fingers across your skin.

  2. I have the small 1oz bottle of the VIP O2 cleanser (which I'm going to repurchase in a larger size) and the ingredients are different to yours. Most noticeably, the parabens are missing. I wonder if they've reformulated. Have you purchased it again even more recently?
