Winter Skincare FavsLifestyle
During the winter I like to toggle between these two cleansers. Mario Badescu is a deep cleanser that I use whenever my face is feeling really lifeless and a bit icky (you know, that feeling when you wake up not really realizing who you’re staring at in the mirror). Also helps with restoring skin from minor skin irritations (rashes, etc.). Love using this in conjunction with my moisturizer (more on that towards the end of the post). On to the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser. I actually received this cleanser as a gift from a Kiehl’s store in Florida. I love how gentle it is yet mighty. Meaning, it takes off all of my leftover makeup without leaving anything behind. I use my makeup remover wipes and put some of this on my Clarisonic Mia 2 and PRESTO!! I feel like a new woman!!
Kiehl’s has steadily become one of my favorite skincare brands. And this serum is definitely one of the reasons why. This Nightly Refining Micro-Peel Concentrate has done wonders for my skin. It promotes new skin cell turnover which is a plus with these very cold winter months and my flaky skin (sorry if that’s too much TMI). I’ve tried a couple of face scrubs and they’ve all come up short (apart from a Burt’s Bee’s one that I can’t find anywhere, but online *sad face*). I use this about one or two times a week!
After I use the serum above, I use this Midnight Recovery Concentrate on top. This is one of my favorite steps. I carefully squeeze about three drops into the palm of my hands and lightly press the oil into my skin. It’s oddly one of the most revitalizing steps in my skincare routine. It’s no wonder it’s on Keihl’s best sellers list 😉
I couldn’t even tell you how long I’ve been using this Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream by The Body Shop. It’s been one of my holy grail items for awhile now. Although this is a night cream, I use it both during the day and at night (I have dry skin and this works best for me). During the summer I alternate between this one and the regular “daytime” one depending on how hot it is. I would 110% recommend this moisturizer to EVERYONE. I love trying new skincare products and they’re not always easy on my sensitive skin (rashes, skin irritations, etc), but this has corrected any issues in a very appreciated timely manner.
GLAM GLOW! That should literally be all I have to say. One of the BEST hydrating masks I’ve ever used in my LIFE! Anytime you’re traveling by plane or in a car for a long period of time (3.5+ hours) I would use this mask. You can use this mask overnight or apply it for about 15 minutes. I usually leave it on overnight. Just get it and thank me later 🙂
