I am constantly taking notes on what I want to blog about. Finally, I want to touch on what is probably one of my favorite things EVER. Skincare. Anyone else as obsessed with facial cleansers, moisturizes, face masks, primer and all that good stuff?! Good, then you came to the right place. A lot of people ask me what my skin care routine is, which is shocking to me but I would love to share :) I have listed all the links to these products at the end of this post!
I definitely stand behind certain products but I do like to switch things up. After using the same products for quite some time I always like trying new things.
Last year, I started using Rodan & Fields products through my friend Danielle. Her skin was looking amazing and she swore by it. I am always willing to try new things so I decided to give it a shot. I have to say, the products DO work. I was using the Sooth Regimen which is for sensitive skin. I felt like my skin was less red, not oily, and I felt confident not wearing makeup on a weekend. They have all different products for different types of skin so if you are considering trying something new, definitely give it a shot! My consultant Danielle's link is at the bottom of this post!
I used the Rodan & Fields products for about a year, but like I said I tend to want to change things up. Once Jan 1st hit I decided to switch up my routine. This is what my routine is today:
Makeup Remover: Neutrogena Wipes. My mom and I have been using these wipes for as long as I can remember. One piece of advice, don't rub your skin harshly when taking of your makeup. That is something my grandma taught me growing up. Be gentle.
Facial Cleanser-Clean & Clear Skin Brightening Facial Cleanser. I LOVE THIS STUFF GUYS! First off, its super affordable but also I feel like it really does brighten my skin. It has these small little beads in it that help exfoliate your skin but are not harsh. I know this says morning burst, but I use it Morning and Evening because I love it so much. I also use the Mia2 Clarisonic in the evening. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THIS YOU NEED TO GO AND PURCHASE IT IMMEDIATELY. Please??!?! You would be surprised how much makeup we leave on our faces at night just by washing our face with a cleanser. This little gadget gets all that unwanted makeup right off.
Moisturizer- For Christmas my sister bought me the Hope in a Jar moisturizer from Philosophy. I have combination skin ( more on the oily side) so when it comes to picking a moisturizer I am extremely picky. I personally love this stuff! I put a little on my finger tip and apply to my face both in the morning and in the evening. Switching to new products can be a tough decision because you never know how your skin is going to react. I had no bad breakouts when switching to this & I love how my skin feels. It isn't heavy and not oily. Definitely try to get your hands on a sample and try it out :)
Eye Creams- Yes I know I am 27 years old and use eye cream, BUT did you know that your eye area ages 5 to 10 years faster than the rest of your Face ?! ( I read that in Cosmo and it totally stuck with me) Listen it is never to early to start taking care of your skin, so why not now? I have been using Shisedio anti dark circle eye cream for the days where I feel like I have dark circles under my eyes. Most nights, I am using bareMinerals renew & hydrate Eye cream. My friend Erika told me about this product a while ago, and I have been using it every since. Just tab a little on your finger and SMOOTHLY apply under your eyes.
Face Masks- Okay so if you know me, I AM OBSESSED with face mask. Literally, my favorite thing ever, I love trying new things especially the face mask sheets that you can get in Target ( i will list them below) they are cheap and easy to apply. However, my all time favorite face masks are the Glam Glow masks. I have tried every single one of their face masks and I love all of them. Glam Glow is on the pricey side, but definitely worth it. You can also get the smaller samples from Sephora if you want to try them out but I highly recommend them. Another favorite of mine, that I received as a gift is the Bubbly Clay mask. This mask is so refreshing and leaves your skin glowing. It also tickles when it is on your skin so if you are having a bad day and just want to laugh, end your day applying this to your skin lol. Sometimes on nights when I feel like I need a little more hydration I use the Water Sleeping Mask by LANEIGE. This was also a gift from a friend that I fell in love with. I wake up feeling refreshed and hydrated.
& thats really is folks. Those are my favorite skincare products. I will list all the links below if you are interested in trying. Please know that this is NOT a sponsored post. I genuinely love all these products and would recommend them any day. If you decide to try them, please let me know! I would love to hear what you think.
Have a great day everyone! xo chat soon
