So one of my MAJOR concerns, skincare-wise, about moving back was: Would I be able to repurchase the items I love to use as part of my skincare routine? I was so pleased when I slowly discovered that majority of them were available in Lagos.
Although, one thing the stores in Lagos do suffer from is something I like to call 'Here Today, Gone Tomorrow Syndrome'. You might see something in a store one week, go back a couple weeks later and it's not there. You'd think "Ok, it's just not in stock yet".... NOPE... It's just not stocked ANYMORE. And then you'd have to go searching for it all over again.
Case in Point: I went to the store I bought my Neutrogena Visibly Clear Gentle Exfoliating Wash from in order to write-up this post, and it wasn't on the shelves. They did have other Neutrogena products in store, so I am keeping my fingers-crossed they'll be back in stock soon. Since I could not get the prices, my pricing listed at the bottom is more of a range, than an actual price.
Anyways on to the pictures
I use all four of these products on rotation within the week.
I used to be faithful to the Clean&Clear exfoliating face wash, but I found the microbeads in it a little too 'scratchy' for me, so I switched to this. And I have no complaints so far. I use this 3times a week, or whenever I feel my face needs a good scrub
Also another exfoliant I use. As you rub this in you feel a warm sensation on your face, which is quite nice. I switch back and forth between this and the Neutrogena within the week.
I use this everynight once I've taken my makeup off with my 'baby-wipes&babyoil' combo.
This I use mornings I don't exfoliate. It's got a pump and the product comes out as foam which you just apply directly to wet face.I did not buy this here, but I did see it once in MedPlus pharmacy at The Palms.
