Obiqo Skincare Review + Giveaway | My Beauty Picks

During the month of May I had the chance to test out two skincare products from Obiqo Skincare -- a New Zealand brand that is gentle on the skin. Typically I have a hard time finding skincare products that my face likes, and doesn't react to. For in the past, I have tried out some organic brands and the Say Yes To... brand, but those just made me breakout every time I used them. At first, when I was younger, I just thought my skin didn't like to be washed, as my skin would always breakout after every time I washed it. Silly me. So of course, I was excited to find out if Obiqo Skincare would work for me, as I do use Simple and it does work for me, but I wanted to have other brands work for my skin too.

 Obiqo Gentle Face Wash  [on sale for $14.99] -- A clear face wash gel that turns into a luxurious foam when you add some water. What I love about this face wash is that it is perfect for both morning and nighttime, and it really helps take out my makeup at night. Whenever I wash my face with this product, I take a small amount [about one squeeze] into my palm, and add some water to create the foam. I then apply it all over my face in a circler motion with my fingertips. Once I'm done, I will take either a damp washcloth [or if they all need to be washed], I will grab a couple up&up exfoliating cotton rounds that are slightly damp and rinse off my face with warm water. And of course, pat my face dry with a soft hand towel.

Obiqo Gentle Face Scrub [on sale for $13.99]  -- I adore face scrubs and masks, so of course I was going to try theirs out when I was picking out my two products to review. What I like about this product is that it is gentle to the skin, and doesn't feel real harsh [like my Clean & Clear ones] so I can use it on a more daily basis. Of course, I recommend that use it at most 3 times a week, even if it is more gentle than other face scrubs out there. I apply the face scrub in a circler motion with my fingertips all over my face [being sure to avoid my eye area], just make sure your face is slightly damp first before applying the scrub. Once I'm done, I will let it sit for about a minute before taking either a damp washcloth [or if they all need to be washed], I will grab a couple up&up exfoliating cotton rounds that are slightly damp and rinse off my face with warm water. Then once again, pat my face dry with a soft hand towel. Once I'm done washing my face, and applying my face scrub I will finish off with my current favorite face moisturizer.

-- Overall Thoughts --
- These products have really helped clear up skin, that I don't have as many break-outs anymore.
- My skin has look more clear and even toned, that I don't need as much concealer or foundation.
