Blogmas Day Nine: Winter Skincare Routine

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Nine! Today I’m going to be showing you guys my winter skincare routine. I do these posts every season, and I really enjoy them, so with that being said let’s get into it.

The first thing I do is take the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes and Lips put that on a cotton pad and swipe it over my eyes and lips. One of the things I really like about this is it has a really gentle formula so you don’t have to scrub and it takes off every long wear, waterproof product you’re wearing.

JLSP2

Then I take the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Deep Dive Cleansing Gel to remove the rest of my makeup. You put this on your hands, rub until it’s foamy, then put on your face. And it leaves your skin feeling really nice.

MYSP3

My next step is to take the Caudalie Concentrated Brightening Essence on a cotton pad and swipe all over my face. This removes any dead skin cells you may have so that your serums and moisturizers can really sink in and do their job.

JSP5

Then it’s time for serums. This winter I’ve been rotating between my two favorites, the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum which is really great at evening out your skin tone and brightening your skin and honestly during winter I feel like brightening is key because the cold can be so harsh on the skin. And the Olehenriksen Truth Serum, which has vitamin C, green tea, aloe juice and orange extract and is very hydrating and brightening as well.

OSP3

SSP7

I follow that with moisturizer and this winter I’ve been loving two. The first is the Algenist Genius Sleeping Collagen, which I talked about 975 times during the summer months and I still freaking love it. This has a really buttery texture, it makes my skin feel really soft, hydrated and almost dewy. It’s a vegan collagen, has ceramides, alguronic acid, Mary Thistle and is free of pretty much everything. The second is the Belif The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb. This makes my skin again feel really soft and smooth. The callout is that it can retain moisture for up to 26 hours and it does feel like it moisturizes for a long time.

AUSP3

SPSP2

My second to last step is eye cream and for that I have my trusty duo of the Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb and the Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream. The Belif cream has been my holy grail eye cream for a while, it makes my under eye look and feel moisturized. The Clinique Pep-Start is really hydrating, brightening and I look more refreshed after using it.

FSP3

APB9

And my last step is lips. For this I use the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in Vanilla and the Vanilla Softlips. I’ve been using the Laneige more because it gives that extra moisture that my lips want during winter. But the Softlips is always really hydrating and both of these smell really good.

JUSP5

AF3

That about wraps it up for this post, if we use any of the same products let me know and if not I’d love to know what products you do use.

Until next time, have fun with your routines and you can never have too many skincare products :).

Summer 2019 Skincare Routine

Hi everyone,

Today, as summer is coming to a close, I thought it would be the perfect time to share my summer skincare routine. I have two routines, one from the beginning of the summer and one that I’m using right now. So with that being said, let’s get into it.

So the first thing I do is take my trusty Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lips and Lashes, put that on a cotton pad and swipe it over my lips and eyes. This has a really gentle formula and you don’t have to scrub to get the makeup off.

JLSP2

Then I take the Sephora Collection Triple Action Cleansing Water. I’ve been using this for a little while and I like it a lot. It has Matcha Green Tea extract which is great for the skin and it’s soap free so you don’t have to rinse after using it. And I put it on a cotton pad and use on my whole face to remove the rest of the makeup.

APB8

My next step is to take the Caudalie Vinoperfect Concentrated Brightening Essence on a cotton pad and swipe all over my face. This removes dead skin cells so any serums and moisturizers you use can sink in and work to their fullest.

JSP5

Then it’s serum time. I have a couple that I really like, but this summer I’ve been using the Olehenriksen Truth Serum. This serum is super hydrating and brightening and it’s full of vitamin C along with aloe juice, green tea and orange extracts.

SSP7

I follow that with my moisturizer which is Sephora Collection All Day Hydrator-Hydrate and Glow. I’ve been using this for a few months and I like it a lot, I’ll even use this in the morning. It has vitamins C and E, hyaluronic acid and glycerin. All of those combined help to boost the moisture in your skin while protecting it from anything nasty in the environment and preventing dryness. It’s also free of parabens, sulfates SLS and SLES, phthalates and many others. It’s also $16.00 for the full size and $9.00 for the smaller version.

JUSP2

My second to last step is eye cream and for that I’ve been using the Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream. This is really brightening, hydrating and I can tell a difference after using it. I look and feel refreshed.

APB9

And my last step is lips. I have two products that I use for this, for the nights when I want more I use the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in Vanilla. This makes my lips feel really moisturized and smooth, plus it smells really good. And my second lip product is my go to, the Vanilla Softlips. It’s always really hydrating and again, it smells good.

JUSP5

AF3

For my second routine, there are a few newer products, but I can honestly say I’m loving them. My first step hasn’t changed, it’s still the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover. I had mentioned in my spring makeup routine that I was using the Lancôme Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup Remover and I ended up recently finishing the one I had and I haven’t decided if I’m going to repurchase yet. But if you’re considering it, it’s quite good.

JLSP2

The next step is an old favorite of mine, the Tarte Rainforest Of The Sea Deep Dive Cleansing Gel. I used this forever, ran out, then got a sample in a Sephora Play Box and it reminded me how much I like it so I decided to repurchase. You put this on your hands, rub until it’s foamy then put it on your face. It takes off all your makeup, doesn’t leave anything behind and makes your skin feel nice.

MYSP3

Next up is the Kora Organics Noni Glow Face Oil. Prior to this I hadn’t really used face oils but this one was intriguing to me. It has noni extract, pomegranate oil, rosehip oil and sea buckthorn oil. All of which are high in antioxidants and the essential fatty acids so it really brightens and nourishes. My skin feels more naturally glowy along with being softer and very hydrated. This is good for sensitive, normal, dry, oily and combination skin so if you’re thinking about trying a face oil I would recommend this one.

MYSP4

From there I go straight to my moisturizer, the Algenist Genius Sleeping Collagen. This is so good, I’ve been using this since I got it and my skin loves it. It has a really creamy, almost buttery feeling when you put in on. I’ve noticed that my skin looks and feels really smooth, soft and fresh. This is an expensive product, but in my opinion it’s so worth it, especially when it comes to skincare.

AUSP3

Then I go to eye cream and I’ve still been using the Clinique Pep-Start but I’ve also brought my favorite Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb back into the mix. It’s my holy grail eye cream and these two together is just so good.

APB9

FSP3

And the last step is to use either the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in Vanilla or my Vanilla Softlips.

JUSP5

AF3

That about wraps it up for this post, if we use any of the same products let me know and if not I’d love to know what products you do use.

Until next time, have fun with your routines and you can never have too many skincare products :).

July Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I received my July Play Box from Sephora and thought that today would be a good day to go through it. The theme this month is Desert Island Essentials, basically it’s products that if you were on a desert island would serve you well. The bag itself is plastic with a snap and lock closure, the front is a see through green with various beauty and lifestyle products and Play! By Sephora in the middle. The back is white with ‘Ready. Set. Play! #SephoraPlay’ written in green.

JLSP1

The first product we have is the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes and Lips. This is something I use often and have been using for a while. It has a gentle formula, you don’t have to tug to remove any makeup and it really does take everything off. This is something I always recommend to people and will probably continue to do so.

JLSP2

Next we have the Drunk Elephant Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser with Bamboo Booster. This is a cleansing balm that is supposed to take off all of the water resistant, long lasting makeup and remove any traces of makeup/dirt/sunscreen. It also comes with a little packet of Bamboo Booster which is a bamboo extract and charcoal powder mix. You add that to your Slaai and it is supposed to exfoliate and help to remove dead skin cells. I’ve never actually used anything from Drunk Elephant so I’m excited to try this out.

JLSP3

JLSP4

Moving on we have the Caudalie Vinopure Natural Salicylic Acid Pore Minimizing Serum. This is supposed to get rid of blemishes and reduce the look of pores, it also doubles as an overnight spot treatment. You guys know how much I like Caudalie as a brand, so I’m excited to try this and I’ll let you know what I think.

JLSP6

The next product we have is the Kiehl’s Ginger Leaf and Hibiscus Firming Mask. This is an overnight mask that you put on before bed and is supposed to leave you with smoother and firmer skin. I don’t usually wear overnight masks, but since I’ve been wearing the overnight lip mask I’ve been looking into them, so this one comes at a great time.

JLSP5

The second to last product we have is the Bite Beauty Matte Cream Lip Crayon in Glace. I have this exact lip crayon and I love the color. It’s a dusty mauve and it goes so well with so many different looks. It’s super pigmented, and long wearing. Bite Beauty has so many great products and if you haven’t ever checked them out I definitely recommend it.

JLSP7

JLSP8

And the last product we have, this month’s bonus, is the Marc Jacobs Fragrances Daisy Love Eau So Sweet. This is a very complex scent, it’s fruity, floral and a little sugary. But it’s so well balanced and every time you smell it you can pick out something different. It’s like the perfect summer scent. I would recommend smelling it if you haven’t and you get the chance to.

JLSP9

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your July Play Boxes let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).

Spring Skincare Routine

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be sharing my spring skincare routine with you. I’ve done a few of these posts in the past and I quite like them. I have two routines, one from the beginning of spring and one that I’ve been doing more recently and that includes products that I got more recently. I will link all the products I mention below. That being said, let’s get into it.

So for the first routine, the first thing I do is use the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lips and Lashes. It has a great formula that is really gentle but super effective, no scrubbing needed. I put this on a cotton pad and swipe it over my eyes and lips.

JNSP4

My next step is to take off the rest of my makeup and for that I use the IT Cosmetics Confidence In A Cleanser. All you do is gently massage this onto wet skin for about 30 seconds and rinse when you’re done. This is different to other cleansers because it not only cleanses but it moisturizes. The first time I used this I wanted to see how good it really was so I didn’t use anything else after and I was impressed. So it’s great in either application.

MRSP2

After that I use the Caudalie Vinoperfect Concentrated Brightening Essence. I put this on a cotton pad and swipe it over my entire face. This really helps to remove any dead skin cells so your serums and moisturizers can really sink in to work to their fullest.

JSP5

My next step is serum and I have two that I go between. The first is the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum. This is really great for evening out your skin tone and brightening your skin. The second is the Olehenriksen Truth Serum. This is full of Vitamin C, aloe juice and green tea and orange extracts. It’s super hydrating and also brightens your skin.

OSP3

SSP7

I follow that with my moisturizer, which is the Dr. Dennis Gross C+ Collagen Deep Cream. I recently repurchased this because I was using it almost everyday and it’s so good. It’s very moisturizing, it sinks in to the skin quickly and my skin loves it.

AGSP9

My second to last step is to apply eye cream. For that I use my holy grail eye cream that I talk about all the time, Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb. I’ve been using this for a while now and I love it.

FSP3

And the last thing I do, and I do this right before I go to bed, is to put on a lip product. I have two that I go between. The first is Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask in Natural, I’ve been using this for a while and it always makes my lips super soft. And the second is Vanilla Softlips. I’ve been using Softlips for years and it’s a product that I know is always going to hydrate my lips and smell good doing it.

JSP4

AF3

On to the second routine, this has quite a few new/different products starting with what I use to take off my eye makeup. And that is the Lancôme Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup Remover. This easily takes off all of the long lasting/waterproof whatever I’m wearing and it leaves my skin feeling refreshed.

DSP5

My next step is to take off the rest of my makeup and to do that I use the Sephora Collection Triple Action Cleansing Water. This is a very recent addition to my skincare routine and I’ve really been liking it. I put it on a cotton pad and swipe over my entire face. This is soap free so you don’t have to rinse after using and it has Matcha Green Tea extract which is great for the skin.

APB8

I follow that with the Caudalie Vinoperfect Concentrated Brightening Essence.

JSP5

And my serums, Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum and Olehenriksen Truth Serum.

OSP3

SSP7

I then moisturize using the Clinique Moisture Surge 72 Hour Auto Replenishing Hydrator. This is incredible. It sinks in to the skin quickly, it’s light and it does keep hydrating your skin. My face feels so soft after using it, it’s been a game changer in my routine.

FBSP3

My second to last step is eye cream and for that I use the Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream. This is the only thing I’ve tried that really rivals the Belif cream. This is really good. It hydrates, brightens and I can tell that I look more refreshed after using it.

APB9

When it comes to putting on a lip product, besides the Vanilla Softlips, I’m also using the Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment in Dream. This always leaves my lips feeling really moisturized and it smells amazing.

AF3

APB4

That about wraps it up for this post, if we use any of the same products let me know and if not I’d love to know what products you do use.

Until next time, have fun with your routine and you can never have too many skincare products :).

Blogmas Day Six: Winter Skincare Routine

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Six! Today I’m going to be showing you guys my winter skincare routine. I’ve done a couple of these posts before, I did one last winter and I’ll link that down below. I have two different routines that I’ve been doing, so I’ll go through them both. And I’ll also leave links for all of the products that I mention, so let’s get into it.

So, there are two things that I always use no matter what, and the first is the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes and Lips. I really like this, it has a gentle formula and you don’t have to scrub to get your makeup off. I put this on a cotton pad, swipe it over my eyes/lips and that’s it. Super easy and effective.

JNSP4

My next step is to remove the rest of my makeup, and for that I use the Tarte Rainforest of The Sea Deep Dive Cleansing Gel. With this, you put some in the palm of your hand and rub your hands together until it gets foamy and then you put it on your face. It takes off everything and leaves your skin feeling really good.

JLGB9

Next, I use the Caudalie Vinoperfect Concentrated Brightening Essence. You put this on before any serums and moisturizers and it removes any dead skin cells, so those serums and moisturizers can really sink into your skin and do what they’re supposed to do. And I just put this on a cotton pad and wipe it over my entire face.

JSP5

Since it’s winter and the cold can be so harsh on the skin, I’ve been using serums. I don’t always use a serum, but I think that’s probably going to change after this winter. This one is the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum. This helps to even out your skin tone and it brightens, which I really appreciate this time of year.

OSP3

I follow the serum with my moisturizer and that is the Lancôme Hydra Zen Anti-Stress Moisturizing Face Cream. I like this a lot, the formulation is cool because it goes from a cream and transitions into a water gel. It makes my skin feel really soft and hydrated.

NSP4

The second to last thing I do is put on eye cream and for that I use the Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb. This is probably my favorite eye cream that I’ve used and I swear by it.

FSP3

And the last thing I do, which I do right before I go the bed, is put on a lip product. I rotate between two products, it was three but I ran out of one and haven’t repurchased yet. But the two that I rotate between is Vanilla Softlips, which I’ve been using for years and Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask. The Bite Beauty Lip Mask I’ve been loving for almost a year, it’s so moisturizing and makes my lips feel so soft.

JSP4

AF3

On to the second routine that I’ve been doing, the first couple steps are the same.

JNSP4

JLGB9

JSP5

So, for this routine one thing that’s different is the serum that I use. I’ve been using the Olehenriksen Truth Serum. This has Vitamin C along with orange and green tea extracts and aloe juice. It’s incredibly hydrating and brightens your skin. It also smells really good. It smells just like these Vitamin C tablets my parents would buy when I was a kid, so there’s some nostalgia there.

SSP7

The next step, moisturizing, is also different. The moisturizer I use here is the Dr. Dennis Gross C+ Collagen Deep Cream. This has a little bit of a thicker consistency, but it’s quick absorbing and very hydrating.

AGSP9

The eye cream and the lip products are the same as the first routine.

FSP3

JSP4

AF3

Something I also make sure to really do during winter is moisturize my hands and the rest of my body. The cold can be harsh on the skin so moisturizing is extra important. What I’m using is the Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar 24 Hour Moisture Ultra Shea Body Cream. I keep this big one on my nightstand and I have a small one in my handbag. I also have in my handbag a small Jergens Ultra Healing lotion, I don’t have a picture of that one. It has vitamins C, E and B5. It’s a great lotion to have around.

DF2

That about wraps it up for this post, if we use any of the same products let me know and if not I’d love to know what you do use.

Until next time, you can never have too many moisturizers and I can’t believe we’re halfway through Blogmas :).

October Sephora Play unboxing

Hi everyone,

Happy Sunday! Today I’m going to be doing my October Sephora Play unboxing. Normally I would have done this days ago, but delays and mistakes at my local post office had me getting this in the mail yesterday, so I apologize for the delay. The theme for this month is Scary Good Beauty. Basically products that are fantastic all around. The bag is the same as last month, it’s plastic and closes in the snap and lock Ziploc fashion. The front is a clear red that has ‘Play! By Sephora’ written on the front with various beauty and lifestyle things surrounding it and the back is white and says ‘Open here to start your next beauty adventure #SephoraPlay’ written in red with an arrow pointing at the opening. I’ve been using the bag from last month to store extra Q-tips and little cotton pads in my bathroom and it’s been great.

OSP1

The first product we have is the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser. This cleanser has amino acids, soy protein and cucumber extract and it’s supposed to remove makeup and basically wash the day away without drying out your skin. As a brand I like Fresh, so I’m interested to use this and see how it works for my skin.

OSP2

Next we have the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radience Serum. This is supposed to brighten and even your skin tone all while being quick absorbing. I love Caudalie and I use quite a few of their products, so I’m excited to add this into my skincare routine.

OSP3

The third product is the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Hydrating Primer. This primer has marine plant and algae extracts along with hyaluronic acid that is supposed to help smooth and soften skin. I love the Rainforest of the Sea collection and I’ve been using primers more often so I’ll let you guys know what I think.

OSP4

Moving on we have the Make Up For Ever Matte Velvet Skin 24 Hour Foundation in Y245. I really like Make Up For Ever and they make great foundations. This one says it’s full coverage, long lasting and helps to blur imperfections and control shine, so I’m excited to try this out.

Second to last we have the Benefit Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel in 01- Cool Light Blonde. I really like Benefit and I’ve used this in the past and really liked it. This one isn’t in my shade, it’s too light, but it reminded me how much I like this product.

And the last product we have, this months bonus product, is the Maison Margiela ‘Replica’ Sailing Day scent. This is a male and female fragrance. It’s very fresh, has red seaweed essence and smells like a sea fragrance, something you would wear in the summer or out boating. It’s not a scent that I would wear, but it smells really good.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your October Sephora Play boxes let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).

Summer skincare routine

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be doing my summer skincare routine, I did one of these during the winter and I enjoyed it so I figured I would do another. If you never read the winter one, I will link it down below. Before I get into this I’m going to be completely honest with you guys, I spent time yesterday taking some photos for this and it was great. I had the perfect lighting and I was really excited to post these pictures. However, when I went to look at the pictures on my laptop they were gone. I don’t know what happened or how it happened, but I’m not thrilled with it, so I’ll be using the existing pictures I have of these products. But if at any point in the future I’m able to recover the photos I will come back and insert them. I will be linking all the products down below, and with that said, let’s get into it.

I’ve been using a few different products this summer. Because I do subscribe to Sephora Play, I’m always getting new products and incorporating them into my routine, so I now have two routines that I switch between. At the very start of the summer, this is what it looked like. To take off my makeup I would use the Tarte Rainforest Of The Sea Deep Dive Cleansing Gel. One pump of this goes into my hand and I rub my hands together until it gets foamy then I put it on my face. I’ve been able to get away with just using this and not a secondary cleanser because I haven’t been wearing as much makeup/ not as heavy coverage wise, this summer.

The next thing I do is take the Caudalie Vine Activ Glow Activating Anti-Wrinkle Serum and put a couple drops of that into my moisturizer, which is the Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet. On it’s own the Moisturizing Sorbet is amazing and I absolutely love it, but the addition of the Serum gives your skin that extra boost.

And the final thing I do is take my favorite eye cream, the Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb and apply that. It really is one of the best eye creams I’ve ever used.

The last thing I do is put something on my lips. I have three products that I use and I rotate through them. I’ll put all the pictures in the second routine so it’s not to repetitive.

The second routine I have is to start I’ve been using the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes and Lips. I really like this because it has a gentle formula and it doesn’t sting or irritate my skin and to apply I put this on a cotton pad.

Then to remove the rest of my makeup, I’ll use the Tarte Rainforest Of The Sea Deep Dive Cleansing Gel.

The next thing I do is use the Caudalie Vinoperfect Concentrated Brightening Essence. I put this on a cotton pad and rub it over my entire face and it removes your dead skin cells so whatever serums and moisturizers you’re using can really sink in and do what they’re supposed to do. And since getting this, I use it with my other routine to complete the Caudalie trifecta.

Next I use the Murad Nutrient Charged Water Gel to moisturize my face and I honestly love this. It leaves my skin feeling incredibly moisturized.

The second to last thing I do is apply the Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb.

And the last thing I do, is put something on my lips. I rotate between Vanilla Softlips, SKYN Iceland Berry Lip Fix with Wintered Red Algae and Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask. I wear a lot of lipsticks and other lip products, so I’ve always taken extra steps to make sure I moisturize my lips. I’ve been using Vanilla Softlips for ages and it never does me wrong, plus it has an SPF in it. The SKYN Iceland Berry Lip Fix is a favorite of mine from the winter and it does a great job of preventing lips cracking and it was great when I got sunburnt. And the Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask is a product I love to pieces and I’ve loved for a while. It makes my lips feel so smooth and hydrated.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys use any of the same products in your summer skincare routine let me know and if not I’d love to know what products you do use.

Until next time, you can never have too many skincare products and I hope you’re having a great summer :).
