28 Days Purging Series: Day 11

Welcome to day eleven of this purging series. Today we are going to be doing Shower and Skin Care Products.

Our goal is to spend 20 minutes or less on this task. Throughout this series there may be tasks that only take 5-10 mins and that is great and gives so much motivation to keep on with the tasks in the days ahead. 

Also, during these daily tasks for our purging series if there is a day where it does not apply to you or that place does not need it you can select another area to do with the same idea of 20 minutes or less.

For me, shower products will be super easy, skincare in the another hand I have way more to go thru.
I would start with the one that won’t take long. Go thru it all, get rid of whatever you aren’t liking or using. For skincare, it’s the same process, accept I would check the expiry date as well. (Tip: if your products don’t have an actual expiry date but have dates like 12M, 24M, etc make it a habit to check these dates before opening and then with a permanent marker write the date you opened it. This will insure you don’t forget the date you started using it and will know if it has passed the date.) I also have skin care in the shower that stay there. Those are my shower skin care items.

With my skincare, it took me longer as I accumulated so much. Reason for this is since I hit 35 years old I really got into skincare products more then ever. Also, with my skin type I need to rotate products, every 6 months I change my products as I start noticing less of the benefits. Not saying they are not good products, but once my skin gets to using it after some time I need to change it up. (I do go back to them.) I also have acne prone skin so lots of products and masks I have collected. I also had products, that I bought that I didn’t think worked or didn’t like as much as whatever current products I was using, but held onto them. So, this is the reason this Skincare would take me much longer. I took 5 mins if not less with my shower products, and even with 5 mins. The remaining of the time was spent on my skincare products. I really went in through them, checking dates, and really being honest with myself about if I would use them (for certain ones).

Doesn’t it feel amazing to purge? I love that feeling, clean and clear spaces.

Comment below and let me know which purging day has been your favourite so far.

Review: Ubitree

I have acne prone skin, so I am always looking for skin care products and gadgets to help with preventing it. I found this Ubitree from Amazon with great reviews and thought I would give it a try. I love creating self care days at home where I pamper my skin. At first I had my doubts, but after learning to use it correctly I am pretty impressed.

It comes with different heads, Large Circular, Small, and Oval. It also has 5 levels of intensity. The recommendations are to stream your face or use hot press cloth to open your pores. I do mine after a nice hot shower. It can exfoliate dead skin, remove blackheads, grease, and acne. As per the ad it claims, it can also reduce acne, shrink pores, tighten skin, & erase wrinkles. I do notice a big difference in my acne and pores. I use it mainly for those reasons, any added features are a bonus. I also have a daily face care routine, but I have always. Since I hit my 30’s I have taken face care more seriously and always stay on top of it. I have been using this for well over 6 months now. I have taken so long to review it on the blog because I wanted to give it a fair chance. Sometimes we need more time to test the certain products/items out to give it an honest review.

The different heads are for the following;
1.Large Circular Head- Can remove stubborn blackheads, acne, and grease.
2.Small Circle Head-Suitable for sensitive skin
3.Oval Hole Head-Make your skin more elastic and compact, perfect for your T-zone area.
The heads are all removable and can be washed and disaffected.

The different levels of suction are;
Level 1 Sensitive and dry skin
Level 2 & 3 Neutral skin
Level 4 & 5 Mixed skin type & oily skin.

It is so satisfying to see everything that the machine can get out, yes gross to see how much comes out, but good to know it’s out. Don’t let the suction sit in one spot to avoid bruising.Work it from the inner part of your face outwards. I would not say that this replaces face treatments done at the spa by a professional, but it is a good tool to have on hand for those in-between visits or if it is not in your budget (facials) to be doing as often as soon do, you can save some money by using this. It can be used with batteries or a usb cable. I use mine with the usb cable and it works great. I recommend this machine if your looking to up your skin care game. Please read all instructions it comes with to avoid bruising &/or using it wrong. I am not a professional and all opinions given are just from my experiences.
