3 Drugstore Skincare Recommendations (Normal to Dry Skin) Almay, L'Oreal, Cetaphil

First, I want to tell you that I'm not a skincare expert. I have normal to dry skin and these are the products that are currently a part of my night time cleansing routine. Before I go in with these products I remove my makeup with my reusable face cloths (review here) and a makeup remover. I'm trying out a micellar gel at the moment, and I do like to use Pond's Cold Cream or Simple Hydrating Cleansing Oil.

Almay Makeup Remover Foaming Lotion Cleanser

Almay doesn't seem to be  readily available here in Canada, but I did find this at Winners and decided to give it a try. We can find Almay at Walmart but I'm not sure if this product is stocked. I find this cleanser to be very gentle on my skin, easy to rinse and it doesn't burn my eyes. While I don't use this to remove my makeup, I have tried it and it didn't a good job. I just prefer to use it as my cleanser after my makeup has been removed though. I use it with my silicone facial brush and my skin feels so smooth and hydrated once I'm done.

L'Oreal Hydra Total 5 Ultra Soothing Routine Toner (Dry to Sensitive Skin)

Once my face is washed, I go in with this toner on a round cotton pad to ensure all my makeup has been removed. This toner feels really gentle on my skin. I didn't think it did much to my skin, but when I stopped using it I found I started to have texture appear on my skin. For that reason alone, I do recommend this product and I keep repurchasing.

Cetaphil Daily Hydrating Lotion

During the summer months, my skin tends to be normal. I was looking for a lightweight moisturizer to wear and decided to pick this one up. I love the pump on this bottle, I can really control how much comes out. It feels very refreshing on the skin and doesn't feel heavy. Even on days where I feel more dry, this gives me enough moisture. I would love to try out more products from the Cetaphil line.

Have you tried any of these products? What did you think.


  1. I haven't tried any of these but have only heard great things about Cetaphil xx

  2. That L'Oreal Paris Micellar water sounds incredible! Micellar waters are so versatile and I always make sure my skincare cabinet is stocked with them.
