Get ready to change your skin!
This post is one that is long overdue. I have been ranting and raving about these products for months now in real life and I feel like its HIGH time I told you all about them. I can honestly say that my skin has changed over the last few months in a big way, so much so that I’m getting questions from strangers. Now, don’t get me wrong, my skin is by NO means perfect. It has been an uphill battle for years (and years!). I’m talking Accutane as a teenager, multiple dermatologists, the whole deal. But for now, in this season, I think I have it figured out! And thank goodness because it has been an exhausting search!
Earlier this month, I was at a conference and my new sweet friend, Erin from Design for All Mankind (if you don’t know her, you need to) asked me to write down my skincare regimen for her in-between sessions. I did and by the end of that session I had shared it with our entire table… by the end of the conference I had everyone convinced that my magic potions really work! So I figured next time that happens, I’ll be able to just text everyone this link.
Let me say again: I do not have perfect skin, however, I do feel like it has never looked healthier as a result of these changes! So if you try any of the products below you’ll have to let me know what you think! Below I break down each item and how I use it.
Elemis has quickly become my new favorite skincare brand. It smells delicious and it works! I was gifted a small selection of Elemis travel products and I used them randomly one night after I ran out of my normal cleanser and moisturize. I literally haven’t stopped using them since.
Another brand I’ve adored for years is Fresh. I’ve love everything from there Soy Cleanser to their face masks. For me these two brands are top notch. Fresh is on the more affordable side, so if you are wanting to dip your toes into a new skincare routine, I’d highly recommend their rose collection, but as far as luxury skin care goes… I’m pretty sure it doesn’t get better than Elemis Pro-Collagen collection. It’s like botox in a jar. Seriously.
Below are my go-to’s every day. I try to keep things as minimal as possible because I know if there are too many steps at the end of the day, I won’t be motivated to do them all! Also, I live in Florida where it’s Summer and fairly humid all year-round. So tons of heavy creams and lotions don’t work for me.
I use this in the morning to cleanse my face. I like a cleanser that lathers and really feels like my skin is getting clean but not dried out.
I use this in the evening to cleanse my face. I feel like the foam really helps get all the make-up off!
I use this every morning and night. I see a big difference when I use this one… It makes your eye look fresh! This is a must get!
This is my all-day-every-day lip balm. I’m a new convert to this and I may just get everyone I know this lip balm for Christmas!
I use this lip scrub about 2-3xs a week. I love my bright lipstick, and this helps my lips always feel smooth and ready for that bold red!
I use this once a week before I moisturize, but if I’ve been traveling I’ll use it more frequently! It’s magic in a bottle. It really helps hydrate and gives your skin the vitamins it needs.
I’m a face mask girl, I try to do one at LEAST once a week and lately I’ve been gravitating towards this one. It’s really (really!) good.
So that’s it friends, my new and very much improved skincare routine. All of these products I’ve used and re-ordered so I promise you they are 100% tested and work. You’ll have to let me know if you’ve tried any of these and what you think! And as always, let me know if you have a magical product you’ve been using that I don’t know about… I’m ALWAYS up to try something new.
