Okay, today I'm going to take you into my very pretty make up bag and show you some of the key products I'm absolutely loving for Spring/Summer.
You guys already know how much I obsess over my skin and skincare products. You should be obsessing too! Be extremely particular about what goes on your face. We aren't getting any younger, guys! ;)
So, as you may or may not already know, you should be switching up your skincare routine every so often and introducing new products to your skin. I like to do this when the seasons change. As the seasons are pretty drastic here, I like to go with whatever is happening with my skin. And as my skin changes with the weather, so do my products. Obviously, listen to your skin.
Of course, there are products that you'll never want to change, because hey, if they are working for you, why tamper with that, right?
Here's my breakdown:
Vichy SPF 45 sunscreen. I recently started using this on my skin, under my moisturizer in the morning, and I've noticed such a difference in my complexion. My skin seems so much smoother, and just more healthy. I've always known the importance of wearing sunscreen, even in the winters. My moisturizers have ALWAYS had a bit of sunscreen in them. But, they've only ever had SPF 15 or so.
Since the warmer weather is starting to roll around and we're seeing the sun a bit more, I decided to increase my SPF to 45, and I'm loving it! I use this over my skin in the morning, then apply my moisturizer on top, and finally apply my regular make up. I'm totalllly loving the dewy look it gives my skin as well.
You also get them in these little travel sizes that fit perfectly in your everyday bag. I never leave home without them now.
L'Occitane Divine Moisturizer. I've mentioned in past blog posts about this moisturizer. I also have this thing with French products and how amazing they are! My lovely friend, Anastasia is HOOKED on French products, and my beautiful cousin, Trinette is HOOKED on L'Occitane! So with the two of them (who btw, have GORGEOUS skin) on about French products, I, obviously adopted the obsession!
I love, love, love this moisturizer. It's a bit on the pricey side, but let's not put a price on skincare, shall we? It works really well with my skin, which btw, is combination skin. I can get very dry in the winter, but in the summertime it's usually neutral. Either way, this moisturizer is more on the oilier side, but works really well for my skin, as I love the dewy look.
SHOP THE POST:
Rosebud Salve Lip Balm. Another product I NEVER leave the house without is this amazing lip balm. I'm sure I've talked about this product before, but it's something that everyone with dry lips, needs! It's also a natural gloss, which is so great because i'll put this on top of a lipstick, and it will keep my lips nice and moisturized for hours.
Tip: For those of you with lip discolouration, I recommend putting some sunscreen on those lips as well. It keeps it protected from the sun and can help with the discolouration. ;)
TruSelf Organics Clarifying Mask. I know, I know, you're thinking I'm a crazy mask lady, who just won't STFU about facial masks. Lol. You guys KNOW how much I love facial masks, but I really feel like I need to stress on that. They're so good for your skin, and I'm loving this one in particular, because a) it's a mud mask that tightens your entire skin in about 30 mins. HELLLL YA!! And b) it's organic. Need I say more?
Murad Acne Spot Treatment. Another product I've recently adopted is this Acne Spot Treatment by Murad. It's a tiny little tube, and you can carry this everywhere. When you feel like you're getting a little blemish on your skin, dab a little of this on there, and literally watch it disappear in a few days. It's been great for my skin, so I 100% recommend it.
So, there you have it, guys! Honestly, if I had to choose ONE product out of all these today, it would be the Vichy sunscreen. DO IT. Your skin will thank you years from now....when you get ID'd at the casino at 40 ;) #Goals
Andddd of course, if you have any products you guys are loving, DO SHARE!! I love hearing from you all, so please leave your comments below.
Also, if you have any questions on the above products and how they are working for my skin, feel free to ask me anything, I'll be honest! Promise.
Okay, I'm off to watch more of Downton Season 5!!
