With dark combination skin, I have always wondered what I could use to help even out my skin. I don’t wear much make-up because it tends to make my skin super oily and shiny within a couple of hours. As for a facial skin care regime, I don’t really have one, which is probably wear my problem lies. I clean my face with the L’Occitane immortelle Brightening cleansing foam. It gets my face clean but doesn’t do anything else to help the oily or dry spots. This is why I was so excited to try out the Makari products. I need something that will not only clean my face, but will help skin brightening.
This one is me with the sun showing off my face. Not too bad if I say so myself.
This is my face. Unwashed after a long day of work. What you can’t see is the differences between the oily and dry spots are. My face is really blah right then. I also notice how my forehead is darker than the rest of my face, but not noticeable until I bring it up. You didn’t notice until I said something right? So there I am. I wash my face and go. Sometimes moisturize (mostly in the winter) but in the hot days that we have right now, nothing else.
I started with the clarifying exfoliating antiseptic soap of course. I want to say first of all that I’m not a fan of cleaning my face with a bar of soap. The after effects of my skin have always been dry and kind of icky. This bar wasn’t as bad. I didn’t feel the “ickiness” but my skin was really dry. It did its job by cleaning and removing all the oil. I love the smell. If it came in another form with the same smell, I would love it!
Next came the body beautifying milk. You only need a small amount of this to cover my face. Over apply and you will know it! I didn’t know I needed a brightening cream but it makes a difference right away.
Lastly is the skin repairing clarifying serum. I am so excited about this. As I said above, I need something that will give me even skin tone. Once it was all applied, I no longer noticed the uneven skin tone between my forehead and the rest of my face. Thank you for that! The serum is my favorite part of the skin care kit sent to me. I’m sure I will continue using it. Want to see my finished face? Here it is!
