Clean & Clear & Adulting

This post has been sponsored by Clean & Clear®. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

So, fun fact: I’ll be turning 31 this week, and I still don’t have a consistent skincare routine. I know. The horror. Part of me has always just embraced my luck with clear skin, but the other part of me is terrified I’m not doing enough to take care of my skin now—before things like aging and the elements start to have an impact. 

Truth be told, I’ve tried different products over the years but have consistently been on the hunt for the perfect cleanser or moisturizer to build my perfect routine. Now, I’ve found it! 

Ladies, meet my newest obsession: Clean & Clear® Watermelon. 

With 92% H2O + watermelon seed extract, Vitamin C, and antioxidants, CLEAN & CLEAR® Watermelon was created to quench dry, thirsty skin with the hydrating power of watermelon. I knew I loved that fruit for a reason! Another thing I love is that each of the three watermelon products are gentle enough for everyday use, oil-free and non-comedogenic. It’s a win win win win win…win.

When it comes to skincare, I’m all about embracing the skin we have instead of covering it up. Part of that journey to self-love is self-care. Taking care of your skin so it can glow and shine in all the right ways gets us one step closer to loving the skin we’re in, and not being afraid to rock an au natural look. 

I picked up the Clean & Clear® Watermelon products from Walmart a few weeks ago and have been loving my new routine. Honestly, the fresh, fruity scent takes me wayyyy back to my middle school days, and a little nostalgia never hurt anybody. 

Step 1. Clean and Clear® Watermelon Cleansing Wipes

The key to fresh, clear and hydrated skin starts with step 1. It also just so happens to be the easiest step, which is key for a girl who doesn’t love excessive routines. Every night before bed, I use one of the oil-free Clean and Clear® Watermelon Cleansing Wipes to remove my makeup and other tricky impurities hanging out on the surface (it even removes waterproof mascara and that is MAJOR). 

Step 2. Clean and Clear® Watermelon Juicy Scrub

Get ready to hydrate AND cleanse with one easy step. The juicy scrub gently buffs away dirt, oil & dry skin—while still boosting hydration! Just apply a small amount to your face with water and get to work. 

Step 3. Clean and Clear® Watermelon Gel Moisturizer

Not gonna lie, did anyone else ever think of their skin as being thirsty? I didn’t—until now—and I feel like a total pro! The gel moisturizer instantly quenches and calms thirsty skin. No more thirst over here. This product is super lightweight and leaves ZERO residue. I apply a small amount after washing my face, and it’s the perfect final step in my routine.
