Gentle Skincare

I distinctly remember the first skincare product I ever used. But I was maybe 14 or 15 years old, and by skincare I mean soap. Basic, white-barred soap.

And while your basic run-of-the-mill bar soap may have improved, I learned long ago that not all skin is the same. Now, those who are genetically blessed and from an alien planet may be able to get by with using on their face the same thing they use to wash their hands after using the restroom, my skin needs a little more TLC.

Because my skin needs a little more than bar soap, I spent last few years focused on my skin and I have seen a big difference in the size of my pores, the texture of my skin, and the moisture level/oil production. And you guys have noticed as well because it’s seriously one of the questions I get asked the most!

As you probably know, my current skincare routine is mainly comprised of TULA Probiotic Skincare. But as I said in my blog post about caring for your skin in summer, my skin gets a little out of whack when the seasons change and it gets more humid or drier. And I know there are some of you that no matter the season, need something gentle to keep your skin in check!

Clearly, stinging, flaking, and flushing are not ideal results when it comes to experimenting with skincare. But for people with sensitive, borderline-explosive skin that reacts to anything and everything, the aforementioned results can be a regular occurrence — especially when you don’t know what products to avoid (or which ones will work with your skin).

That’s why I’m so excited about TULA’s latest products: Super Calm Gentle Milk Cleanser & Super Soothe Calming Moisturizing Lotion

And of course, I had to give it a try and I LOVE it!

Super Calm Gentle Milk Cleanser

First off, this face wash is crazy gentle. I mean dermatologist-gold-standard kind of gentle. It doesn’t make my skin tight, and it leaves my skin feeling clean but not stripped.

I recently had an unfortunate incident with retinol (sensitivity, redness, burning), and this was the only face wash I could tolerate. It actually felt soothing to coat my skin. And because I’m a little nuts about skincare, I now carry both this wash and my normal wash when I travel! I feel like it gets the daily grime off my face without drying it out, which is key.

It’s full of good-for-you ingredients like probiotics, colloidal oatmeal, cucumber & ginger, and like all TULA products, is 100% free of fragrance, alcohol, phthalates, sulfates & other irritants.

Slathering your skin in a gorgeously scented moisturizer may feel super luxe, but the harsh reality about fragrance in skin-care products? In addition to potentially causing an allergic reaction, they can do more harm than good — especially if you’ve got sensitive skin! That’s why I really like this gentler, fragrance-free moisturizing lotion! It instantly calmed my red skin and


Probiotics are the foundation of all TULA products!

I’m going to steal this next part from their website because they explain it so much better than I ever would: “These same bacteria that are best known to help balance and calm your stomach are also clinically proven to help promote the look of skin’s natural balance, locking in moisture to leave your complexion more hydrated and reducing the appearance of inflammation.

I’m no scientist but these have absolutely changed the way my skin looks. I always thought when products promoted their “glowing” effects etc, that they were exaggerating. But with TULA, the whole glowy thing (technical term) is real! I really love this skincare.
