Hi SEPTEMBER. Only the best month to ever exist. (coming from a September Virgo so clearly theres bias.) ANYWAY. Its my Birthday month. I’m going to be 31. CUTE. What is cute tho is that I look younger than most of my friends cause, SKINCARE. Wash your damn face. And I’m pale as paper, so I never was a lay in the sun and get brown kinda girl. So, I’m sure that helped. Here’s some skincare I’ve loved for a million years. (or like 30) whatever. I have dry skin. Kinda like the Sahara desert. Except my chin is oily. CUTE.
AM|RISE AND SHINE.
Wash. Moisturize. [eye cream]. Makeup.
Cleansers | Tarte of the Sea Cleanser & Origins Ginzing Scrub.
You can buy them at Sephora.
I don’t know what to say about it, takes off gunk and makes my skin feel nice. I promise everything else will have a real explanation as to why I’m loving it.
Moisturizer |Origins Ginzing Ultra Hydrating Energy Boosting CREAM [also comes in a gel version]
Don’t let them fool you. It’s not new. They just deleted it for a month off the site and put it back on with a clean at Sephora sign, “NEW” and boosted the price $2. BUT ITS THE SAME. AND Great. Also smells like citrus. Major plus in the AM. Good wakeup. Buy it here.
I also use the eye cream. [Origins | Refreshing eye cream to brighten & Depuff] Brand & Jar looks almost exacstly the same, [so I’m sorry there will be no pic] but you can check it out here.
PM | Nighty Night.
Remove Makeup. Wash. Exfoliate[sometimes]. Moisturize.
Micellar Water |Makeup Remover [Bioderma]
Use this magic water on a cotton round and it will remove, EVERYTHING. Even your worst regrets from the weekend. (kidding) But, its great, and gentle, and doesn’t rip your eyelashes out of your face when trying to remove mascara. MAJOR plus. I buy mine on Dermstore.com – If you create an account and “favorite” items, you can buy them at a 10% discount. WHICH WHO DOESN’T LOVE THAT? also, easy to find and replace products you LOVE.
__________________[just wash using one of the two I mentioned above. You don’t need anything special for night if you are taking your makeup off]_______________________
Chemical Exfoliant [don’t let the name scare you. It’s awesome]
I don’t recommend using a chemical exfoliator often, but I do once or twice a week. And this one will make you look like a baby. Smooth skin. No little bumps. Really amazing honestly. It’s one of two products I actually notice a difference in my skin when I don’t use it. AND THATS MAGIC. Buy it on Paulaschoice.com
Nighttime Moisturizer | Korres Vitamin C brightening Sleeping Facial
I saved the best for last. The most expensive at $48.00 a jar but also honestly the most life changing. Anything worth putting on your face as far as moisturizer goes comes in a jar. Tubes are for 12 year olds. Will never buy anything else, holy grail till I die night moisturizer. I can tell if I have used this the night before or not. Its wonderful. And smells like roses. Vitamin C is awesome for brightening the skin. The next morning my skin just looks alive. If you don’t believe me, try it for yourself. You can buy it on Sephora.com. They also have a daytime version, which I think is great, but if you’re going to get one. NIGHT is where its at.
Hope this helps. Let me know if you try anything [and if you love it].
