So Bubzbeauty had this video a while ago on an oatmeal cleanser when she had an allergic reaction or something and her skin broke out. This oatmeal cleanser seemed to work for her and lately my skin has been breaking out in red bumps over my entire face. There's no pus/whitehead but there's still bumps everywhere ever since relocating to Alabama from Georgia. I don't know whether it's the water here in Alabama that's so terrible or if it's the air or whatever. Whatever it is, my skin doesn't like it. Even my bf got 2 zits and he NEVER gets zits. So something is up with this place.
Anyway, back to the oatmeal cleanser. The oatmeal cleanser is supposed to help soothe the skin since it is anti-inflammatory. I saw a few youtube reviews on this oatmeal cleanser and they had lots of good stuff to say about it so I thought hey why not. Oatmeal is only $2 and if it doesn't work out for my skin I can always just eat it since it has health benefits as well as a meal.
So today marks the start of my usage of oatmeal. I just washed my face this morning with oatmeal and immediately after my skin did not feel tight at all and didn't feel irritated, so that's good. Here's to hoping that it works!

And here's my Initial Skin video to show you how my face looks before using the oatmeal (though I literally just washed my face before doing this video just to let you know)
As you can see, my skin looks pretty awful after looking at the closeups :(
Pretty embarrassing for y'all to see me without makeup but I mean I've done it here on my blog before, though I did it back when I had good skin.
Have any of you used this oatmeal cleanser? If so, how did it work out for you? Please let me know down in the comments! Anonymous commenters are welcome. You don't need an account to comment :)
Alright I'll see yall in two weeks with my 2 week mark video on updating y'all with the mid-mark results of using the oatmeal cleanser twice daily (morning and night)
