Yeah you are, and I have a fix just for you lonely wanderer of the beauty product abyss! This month’s sponsored Vox Box is brought to you by La Roche Posay and Influenster. Although all products are sponsored, all reviews and opinions are my own.
Ok so first things first, I have oily-dry skin so for me cleansing and re-hydrating my skin is always a delicate and ongoing conversation which changes with the season, my menstrual cycle, how much water I drink or how much less coffee I drink (acid/PH balance—hello)…Needless to say the skincare game can feel nuanced at times (for me at least) so having a pretty solid cleansing and moisturizing routine. With that said, LOVE LOVE LOVE the next two products I’m going to review so let’s break it down y’all.
Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cleanser
WHAT I LOVED:
LOVED that no matter how many times I rinsed and dried my face this cleanser managed to not render my skin a dry and blotchy mess! So often I find especially when I wear makeup some cleansers that I have used in the past render my skin a bright-red blotchy mess (hello mutton face–yeah no thanks). So this cleanser is perfect because not only is my face cleansed
WHAT I DIDN’T:
The first few days of use were a little odd, especially since I normally use Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil (Full (6 fl. oz/180ml), Original)to remove makeup (and recently jojoba oil). By contrast this cleanser that I was using both morning and night felt a little waxy when in contact with my makeup and it took at least two passes of washing/cleansing and then patting dry with a towel to feel fresh before following through with the rest of my cleansing routine. HOWEVER after a few days I was able to remove makeup and cleanse with this product in a snap!
WHERE TO PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT?

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer with SPF 30, 2.5 Fl. Oz.
I remember the first time I used sunblock religiously–my early teens. And I would use that stuff liberally and to save my life I can’t recall the brand exactly (orange flip cap and white bottle). NONETHELESS I absolutely love this sunblock and after cleansing, toning and exfoliating I out this sunblock on right before my primer and the rest of my makeup
WHAT I DIDN’T:
The ONLY critique I have of this product is the smell! Granted, a sunblock smelling like a sunblock (that metallic grating smell that is the metaphorical equivalent of olfactory metal shavings) is NOT the worst thing in the world. All in all great product.
