All about skin care! Most young girls/women are more focused on makeup than skin care and I definitely don’t blame you. Makeup is a form of self expression and at the end of the day it’s fun! However, skin care should be just as important as rushing to put on a face full of makeup for that important work meeting. It is a routine that every woman should be practicing for healthy and firm skin. This doesn’t mean a skin care routine filled with countless high end products. In fact, at the end of a very long day, I prefer my nightly routine to be simple and quick. I really only use a max of 5 skin care products that make up my night time essentials.
Below are my Top 5 skin care products including my holy grail product that will change your life, but really though CHANGE YOUR LIFE!
The Fresh Soy Face Cleanser & Philosophy eye gel are two products that I first tried out as samples from Sephora. I highly recommend the Fresh and Philosophy brands because they both live up to every “promise” listed on their product. The Soy Face cleanser is a rich lather that dives deep into your skin. The gel-like formula is refreshing and gentle. I use this product nightly and have never had a problem with my sensitive/dry skin. As a matter a fact, it moisturizes my skin while it cleanses which is a definite plus.
The Philosophy under eye gel and upper-lid lifting gel are great products for those who struggle with dark circles and heavy lids. The struggle is real over here.. my under eye area is my most problematic spot. These products really focus on firming and moisturizing your under eyes to create a brighter complexion. Lets be honest here if a product claims it firms and diminishes bags… I’m probably out buying it! For now, I stick with Fresh and Philosophy and I have been pleasantly surprised!
This is a product that probably every single person has hidden deep in the back of their vanity considering it has been a favorite since 1892. It’s a simple lip balm, but IT’S AMAZING. It is the only lip balm I have found that keeps my lips moisturized all day long without being sticky. Sticky lip gloss is a no no for dry, chapped lips. Rosebud Salve restores your lips rather than covering up the dry feeling. PLEASE go out and buy it for yourself because it will save your life especially during the winter!
This moisturizer has been a favorite of mine for almost 3 years now. It is gentle, soft, but firming, and a staple in my collection. It is one of the only moisturizers that I have tried that doesn’t burn or make me look like a tomato after use. As I said before, I LOVE products that firm which is of course what this product does and it does it well. It keeps your face refreshed during the night and is an essential on a long airplane flight. Love Love Love!
Last but definitely not least, is my holy grail skin care product, the Fresh Rose Face Mask.
This face mask smells like roses and will rejuvenate, firm, and smooth your skin in just 10 minutes! It can be used as a daily mask although I only use it 1-2 times a week. The gel-like consistency not only smells like roses, but it provides a cooling sensation that firms your skin withi the first use. It is a definite must have in anybody’s skin care collection.
So these are my current Skin Care essentials! Let me know what your skin care essentials are and your product suggestions! I love trying out new products so leave them in the comments!
