Steal My Routine: My Tried-and-True Skincare Products
Dear reader, I have decided to share my tried-and-true skincare products, because I think that I have finally found a golden middle. It took a long time of testing stuff out on myself, because I have no chill really, but I finally got there. I have finally found products for face and body that just work so well together and I’m excited to share them with you.
WASH IT OFF!
The ultimate winner when it comes to removing makeup has always been the Simple Hydrating Cleansing Oil. Super easy to use and doesn’t dry out the skin. Apply it all over the face, put your fingers to use, wash it off! You’re done! After that, I tend to follow up with Burt’s Bees Renewal Refining Cleanser with Hibiscus and Apple Rejuvenating Complex to really thoroughly clean the skin and tighten it a bit.
I also use two products to tone the skin. First is Burt’s Bees Brightening Refining Tonic with Daisy Extract. Does wonders for those blemishes! And second is a beauty community favorite – the Caudalie Beauty Elixir. An amazing product when it comes to skin dullness and enlarged pores.
OIL, OIL BABY!
Yes, you’ve guessed it – I also use two facial oils. The Manuka Doctor 24K Gold & Manuka Honey Face Oil. This product is GOLD, literally! Skin is smooth, glowing and moisturized. The second oil is for the undereye area and it’s Alteya Organics Rose Otto Restoring Eye Serum with Organic Bulgarian Rose Oil. Amazing when it comes to brightening and firming.
As you’ve might’ve noticed already – I’m obsessed with Burt’s Bees! And my daily moisturizer is by BB as well! For the day I use the Burt’s Bees Renewal Firming Day Lotion with Hibiscus and Apple Rejuvenating Complex. It smoothes out the skin and keeps it moisturized all day long. For the night, the substitute is Vichy Idealia Skin Sleep Gel Balm. I adore this product! For someone who doesn’t get enough hours of sleep – this one’s a lifesaver because your skin just looks plump as if you had actually slept enough.
DON’T FORGET THE BODY!
Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer is such an amazing product! You just apply it all over the wet skin and as you step out of the shower, you’ll have that smooth and glowy skin. Goddess! (Favorite scent is coconut.) Of course, I also adore body oils and Among The Flowers Body Oil is really special. It’s made in small batches in California and it includes a blend of oils and herbs. My favorite is “Dawn.” Beautifully moisturizing formula and uplifting scent. Of course, let’s not forget the feet, because they need special attention, always! I love the Farmhouse Fresh Honey Heel Glaze, completely natural with cinnamon notes, sweet cloves and actual honey. I especially love to apply the glaze with the brush in a thicker layer and put on socks for deeper conditioning. And finally – this product is something I use on-the-go and pretty much every day. Purequosa Organic Cleansing Body Spray is a product everyone should have in their purses, backpacks and gym bags. The product is completely organic and consists of a blend of plants and colloidal silver. I have found it very useful while I was at Gov Ball. Let’s be real – going to a music festival is a lot of hours of sweating while dancing. And there are two things that are going to make people around you run – your really bad dance moves or your body odor. Therefore by spraying my body (especially armpits) with Purequosa, I have actually managed to look, smell and feel fresh all day long. A must-have!
