Happy Monday! Hope you guys had an awesome Mother's Day weekend!
I'm changing things up a bit today and switching gears to beauty! I get a lot of questions about what I use and love so I thought I would give you guys a little insight as to what I'm loving at the moment. Scroll through to see my exact current head to toe routine, how I use it and why! :)
And as always, I welcome any questions you have and any other suggestions you have for posts! Anything else you want to read about? Let me know in the below comments or on my latest instagram pic!?
Daily Skincare Routine:
Colleen Rothschild Radiant Cleansing Balm: I'm not sure if you have jumped onto the Balm Cleanser bandwagon yetbut you have to! Especially if your skin is normal to dry like mine. I am so obsessed with this cleansing balm and have turned so many of my girlfriends into it! Basically it's like rubbing gorgeous butter on your face that smells incredible by the way and rinses of completely clean! The idea is that the balm binds and attaches to dirt and oil, clears congested pores and removes impurities while dissolving all traces of makeup, leaving skin balanced, soft, and radiant. I seriously can't say enough good things about this balm and it's totally worth the price!
Tula Hydrating Day and Night Cream: I have really sensitive skin and I always struggle to find a moisturizer that doesn't congest my skin while still hydrating it. This one does the trick! It is super gentle, soaks right in but leaves my skin feeling supple and protected and is perfect for ALL skin types!
La Prairie Line Interception Power Due Cream: This is my current treatment serum/product that I am loving. As I mentioned before I have really sensitive skin and can tend to have pretty bad reactions to really active products so finding a something effective that my skin can handle is sometime a challenge. This La Prairie Duo is awesome and really targets fine lines! I don't have deep lines yet but I'm def seeing some fine lines starting to creep up! Since using it my skin has felt brighter and smoother and I haven't had any reactions! I usually use this first and then top it off with the above cream if I need more moisture.
Colleen Rothschild Eye Cream: Eye Cream will sometime be too heavy and will give me a bit of milia (little tiny bumps around the eyes) this one does not and is light enough to wear under makeup! It is also multi purpose by addressing wrinkles, fine lines, under-eye circles, puffiness and loss of elasticity. Boom!
Weekly Skincare Routine:
Glam Glow Youth Mud: I love and use this masque around the time of the month when I start to get some hormonal break outs. It does a great job of drying out blemishes without drying out my skin. I recently added the below Gold Masque to the routine directly after rinsing Glam Glow off to give my skin glow and keep me hydrated.
Oribe Gold Envy Luminous Face Mask: Ok you guys this masque is a game changer! My girlfriend Erica introduced me to it on a recent trip to NY. We were doing a project on camera and my skin felt so dull from the travel and let's be honest too many cocktails! She had me try this and OMG! This product gives the prettiest glow to your skin and leaves it noticeably radiant and hydrated! Obsessed! She actually uses it and doesn't rinse it off only tissues it off on shoot days for that extra luminosity. Try it out an tell me what you think!
Kate Somerville ExfoliKate: This is a tried and true treatment that I have been suing for years! I keep it in the shower for a quick brightening. It especially helps with those stubborn black heads and congestion on my chin and nose. They also have this sentitive skin formula is you have rosacea or really thin skin. Surprisingly I do fine with the original formula! I only use it on a need basis so maybe once every two weeks or so.
Vita Liberata Fast Acting Self Tanner: I avoid the sun at all costs but that doesn't mean I want to look pasty so I use self tanner EVERY week! This is my favorite formula to date. It leaves me with a natural NOT orange tan and it's quick and easy. Make sure to use this mit so that you get an even color. I use this Dermadoctor KP Duty Body Scrub on my body on the days that I'm self tanning. This one is perfect because it is oil free so won't mess up your tan! It is also great if you suffer from that stubborn chicken skin on the backs of your arms or legs btw!
Aveda Pramasana Scalp Treatment Cleanser and Scalp Concentrate : I will admit it, I only wash my hair like every 4 days! Sometimes more! Eeek! I have naturally curly hair that I blow dry to smooth so my hair gets super damaged if I wash it more then that but this also means my scalp gets a little itchy! I recently received these treatment products and it could not have come at a better time! Literally instantly stopped the discomfort in my scalp. And this Scalp Brush feels like those amazing scalp massages you get when you get your hair done! I'm also started using this Damage Remedy Leave In product in addition to protect my hair and help repair the damage. Also, what is it about all Aveda products that they smell so good and make you feel like you're in a spa every-time you get a whiff of your hair! Ha!
