My Daily Skin Care Routine

Happy #BEAUTYMONDAY, beautiful friends. As I’ve been doing more instagram live videos, I’ve had the chance to talk with a ton of you in real time (I’ll be doing regular get ready with me videos this week so be sure to tune in), and one of the overwhelming responses to what should I post about on beauty Monday next was my skin care routine. LUCKILY, I had just recently teamed up with an awesome skin care brand and am bringing you my skin care routine using these products! Let’s jump into it!

Morning Skin Care Routine Ft. Zapzyt

This post has been sponsored by the PRIMP Network. All opinions are my own.

Let’s talk about my skin. I have INCREDIBLY oily skin. Unfortunately, that means breakouts for me happen often. I have been lucky to avoid cystic acne, and birth control pills take care of MOST of my really bad acne, but I do have serious struggle areas on my face. I have several places (my cheeks and chin) that have stubborn acne scars and regularly break out. JOY.

Because of these regular break outs, I find that my skin has a lot of texture and uneven patchiness. AKA not really ideal. So, when I had to opportunity to work with Zapzyt, I leapt at the chance. Maybe this time, my skin would take a turn for the better. ZAPZYT is the solution for the problem zit. Below is my daily routine, and what I found once I had been using this product for a while. 

Acne Wash Cleanser

This is step one. I wash my face both morning AND night with this acne wash cleanser. It feels gentle on my skin and removes the excess makeup my makeup remover leaves behind. As I have EXTREMELY sensitive skin, this wash works well for those of you who can’t tolerate products that are too harsh (it’s REALLY hard to find a product that does that well). ZAPZYT Acne wash balances powerful Salicylic Acid with soothing aloe and chamomile.

Pore Clearing Scrub

I have a TON of black heads on my nose (I know that is exactly what you wanted to hear..I get it). It is another area of my skin that I really struggle with. This scrub does a great job of the getting the naaaasty dirt and makeup out of my pores. I wish I could take a picture of the inside of my pores before and after, but I definitely see a difference in the smoothness and all over texture of my skin. WINNNNNN.

Pore Treatment Gel

This was designed to be put on tough pores. It shrinks and closes open pores that have been recently cleared to avoid more dirt and makeup getting in. I always use it following the pore scrub. I find it significantly shrinks the pores around my nose, but not so much my chin and cheeks. ZAPZYT Pore Treatment Gel balances the active ingredient of Salicylic acid with calming aloe and Brazilian botanicals, so your skin will feel cool when you put it on.

Acne Treatment Gel

AS SOON AS I feel a zit coming on (you know what I’m talking about), I immediately put this on the mini mountain growing on my face. This product is proven to reduce the appearance of acne within 5 hours. It speeds up the healing process from 3-5 days down to 1-2 for severe acne, and takes typical pimples only overnight to be completely gone. I’m not saying this is a miracle treatment…buttttt…I’m not NOT saying that. ZAPZYT is a REAL solution for REAL people.

I hope you found this skincare routine easy enough to following along with! It is SO SO SO important to clean your skin both morning and night. Keeping dirt, oil and makeup on your skin for longer than 24 hours can cause breakouts, excessive oil production and more. NO BUENO. You can find these products HERE.

Do your skin a favor, and find a routine you can stick to! Your skin will thank you.

    That looks really nice 😊 Do you know if these products are available in Norway? I have to check it out 😄

  2. Bonnie Marrow | 13th Mar 17

    These look like an easy routine

  3. Andrea | 13th Mar 17

    And water is SO important too!

  4. Adriana Renee | 13th Mar 17

    Oooo I might have to check this out! I started breaking out, which I honestly never had before, so I’m at a loss at how to help my face!

  5. Lisa | 13th Mar 17

    I have never heard of that company but its something that I would love to try! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Andy | 13th Mar 17

    This is 100% what I was looking for this weekend! I tried microdermabrasion and have noticed a massive difference but still need something to remove the annoying acne marks! Do you recommend anything for pores?!

    • Taylor Mobley | 13th Mar 17

      This pore treatment gel will TOTALLY help with this! It shrinks pores!

  7. Courtney CJ | 13th Mar 17

    I definitely need to get back in the habit of having a skin care routine. I’ve gotten a bit lazy since I have moved to Dallas but the air isn’t as moisturizing as Houston so I need to get back on the roll.

  8. Krysten | 13th Mar 17

    Any idea if it’s rough on your towels? I used to use Proactiv and it bleached my towels. I loved the product but hated that!

    • Taylor Mobley | 17th Mar 17

      I use dark red towels — and so far no bleaching!!!

  9. Sarah Althouse | 13th Mar 17

    Totally agree that our skin loves when we find a good routine and stick to it! I also struggle with acne but by sticking to my simple routine my skin has been almost completely clear! I will have to check out this product too, though.

  10. Katie | 13th Mar 17

    Finding a skin care routine that I can stick to has been HUGE for me! It’s amazing how we “think” some products work for us, but as soon as we swap them out and try something new, it finally clicks and we start seeing change!

    Also, I love your profile picture! 🙂

  11. Dominique | 13th Mar 17

    So this is what you do to get such great skin! I’ll have to check this out!

  12. cara | 13th Mar 17

    I’m so thankful to have good skin, but I do get the occasional breakout so it’s nice to have products like these that work quickly! Getting in the habit of a good skincare routine is so important too!

    • Taylor Mobley | 13th Mar 17

      Yes! I have fairly good skin too, but I do get those stubborn little guys!

  13. Shaylynn @ Beneath the Cherry Tree | 13th Mar 17

    Gosh, I’m so thankful for this post! I’ve definitely been noticing recently that I need to find a way to start being proactive instead of reactive about my skin scare routine. My skin is suffering from my lack of investment in it for sure. Thank you so much for posting about this! I will totally be giving it a try!

    • Taylor Mobley | 13th Mar 17

      I hope you LOVE it!! Let me know if it works for you!

  14. Adaleta | 13th Mar 17

    I love a good face scrub, it always makes me feel like a new woman with new skin!

  15. Tanvi Rastogi | 13th Mar 17

    I had not heard of this bran. Will check them out.


  16. dixya @food, pleasure, and health | 13th Mar 17

    i have a pretty acne prone skin too but i have not heard of this product. will have to look out for it.

  17. Emily | 13th Mar 17

    I have been putting off a good skincare regimen for ages. It’s almost a shame, I am totally obsessed with cosmetics but have been totally guilty of neglecting my skin. I’ll have to check out these products!

    • Taylor Mobley | 13th Mar 17

      I know. It’s so much easier to go the pretty route!!!

  18. Claire Melzer | 13th Mar 17

    I feel like we have very similar skin issues! I may have to try that mask – I am always looking for a new face scrub to control these blackheads and large pores!

  19. camille | 13th Mar 17

    I have really oily skin too, maybe I should try this!

  20. Kristen | 13th Mar 17

    Thank you for sharing. I have extremely oily and sensitive skin too. It is nice to know that this product doesn’t irritate your skin.

    • Taylor Mobley | 13th Mar 17

      I get it ! It is SO hard working around that sometimes!

  21. Kiara A Catanzaro | 13th Mar 17

    That mask sounds great! I am a person who always sticks with products once I know they work, so sometimes I’m a little nervous about trying new things. But I need to try it!

  22. Mary | 13th Mar 17

    this looks great, i want to try it!

  23. Jenny | 13th Mar 17

    This stuff looks great. I’m a huge proponent for a good skin care routine.

  24. erika | 13th Mar 17

    Throughout my life, I have done/taken it all…Accutane, antibiotics, creams, washes…you name it to no avail. It has taken me almost 15 years {as I am now 29} to simply use water and tea tree oil as an effective cleaner. This is a great post and I hope it continues to work for you and others!

    – ee

  25. Lecy | A Simpler Grace | 13th Mar 17

    I’ve never heard of this brand before, but I’m going to look into them. I love trying new skincare products!

  26. Beth | 13th Mar 17

    You have a great skincare routine. I would be curious to try this product. My skin is somewhat dry so I hope it helps with that. Great review!

    Beth ||

  27. Rachel Ritlop | 14th Mar 17

    Nice! I never heard of this brand before! I only get 1 cystic pimple every month or every other month. Weirdly charcoal based products have been helping it!

  28. Erica @ Coming up Roses | 14th Mar 17

    I might have to actually try this line now! I’m with ya on the oily skin train…no fun. I tried Proactiv for awhile but it IS pretty harsh, so I might have to give Zapzyt a go now!

    Coming Up Roses

    • Taylor Mobley | 14th Mar 17

      It’s nice because you can get it at walmart AKA affordable

  29. Bella | 14th Mar 17

    I have heard great things about this product! I struggle with really bad acne so Im always looking for something new to try!

  30. Lindsey | 14th Mar 17

    Oh, I love reading what other people use!! I will probably need to try this after my pregnancy! 🙂

  31. Nicole Parise | 14th Mar 17

    I love products with chamomile, thats so great that there is a product for acne with calming ingredients as well!

    xx nicole

  32. Amber | 14th Mar 17

    I love this line too!

  33. Jolleen | 14th Mar 17

    I need to give this a try. Even though I’m 30, I still get the occasional zit! Ugh, I hate it. Need to try this now!

  34. courtney | 14th Mar 17

    Sounds like this line is working wonders for you and thats awesome! I definitely think scrubs and exfoilators are key to dealing with texture and pores but I prefer products without microbeads.

    La Belle Sirene 

    • Taylor Mobley | 14th Mar 17

      I can understand that. Sometimes the microbeads can really be damaging to the delicate facial skin. I use it sparingly for that reason!

  35. Tuyet | 14th Mar 17

    Oh I have to try this!

  36. Author Brandi Kennedy | 28th Mar 17

    Looks like a great line of products. My teen has been struggling with blackheads recently too – I’ll have to look into these for her. We’ve tried a couple of super gentle brands with little results (surprise!), but I don’t want to step up to anything harsh on her skin. Maybe this will be as gentle on her skin as it was on yours.
