Hey guys, I feel really out of my depth here. I’m 22(M), I come out of a 4 year relationship in December last year, it’s been 8 months and I now feel ready to start seeing what’s out there (soon).
I want to better myself, and feel nice again before I feel ready to try and get someone else to think, “Yeah, he’s nice, he’ll do”.
I am a single dad who works full time as a Police Officer so I’ve got my work to cut out to try and better – including the odd spot here and there, mix of greasey sweaty forehead at work and the obvious for a shift worker, plus a darling 1 year old child – bags under my eyes.
The products I have so far are L’Oréal Mens Expert;
* Hydra Energetic Wake-up effect face wash
* Hydra Energetic Deep Exfoliating face scrub
* Hydra Energetic Daily Moisturiser
* Pure Carbon Anti-Imperfection Daily Face Wash
* Pure Charcoal Anti-Blackhead Daily Face Scrub
I’m just wondering, firstly, what they will all achieve, what order I use them in, how frequently (bar when it says ‘daily’ in the title) and anything else you think I should use?
Bonus points for anything that people use whilst on shift, sometimes I can go 12 hours without conveniently being able to wash my face when ran off our feet.
Any help. Is absolutely. Appreciated. And I’ll be very happy 🙂
Thanks in advance

Sorry to hear about your relationship! I hope your holding up well!
On to your question – may I ask currently what is the routine and order you use your products in?
Based on the products you’ve listed I would use them in order of:
Hydra Energetic Deep Exfoliating face scrub – 1-2x per week
Pure Charcoal Anti-Blackhead Daily Face Scrub – x 2 daily if required
Hydra Energetic Wake-up effect face wash – x 2 daily
Pure Carbon Anti-Imperfection Daily Face Wash – I’m not sure why you’re using two face washes as you don’t want to completely strip the oils and damage the skins natural barrier. I would choose 1 and stick with x 2 daily use
Hydra Energetic Daily Moisturiser – x 2 daily use
Then for your daily routine breakdown:
1) Hydra Energetic Deep Exfoliating face scrub – on exfoliating days
2) Pure Charcoal Anti-Blackhead Daily Face Scrub – this scrub can be skipped if needs be to avoid too much mechanical and chemical exfoliation if using above product.
3) Hydra Energetic Wake-up effect face wash OR
Pure Carbon Anti-Imperfection Daily Face Wash
4) Hydra Energetic Daily Moisturiser
and repeat at PM except for Hydra Energetic Deep Exfoliating face scrub
BONUS point: Always use an SPF during the day at AM!!
Hope this helps! 🙂
You really only need one face wash/ scrub. You can try these and see if one works better for you than others.
You also need a moisturizer and, this is important, sunscreen.
As far as the under eye bags- cut salt, sleep more (I know), use an occlusive eye cream at night, and if you’re puffy, two frozen teaspoons applied for a few minutes will help.
If you’re still getting acne, a benzoyl peroxide spot treatment can help.
I recommend Elta MD sunscreen, which is pricey, but worth it. The rest you can get from the drugstore, no problem.
Don’t use a harsh cleanser on your face every day. Consider CeraVe, and use your scrub a couple times a week.
