September BoxyCharm Add-Ons Sale Haul

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I received my order from the September BoxyCharm Add-Ons sale and I thought today would be the perfect day to go through it. After having a look through what was available, I ended up picking up two items.

Normally I go for something makeup related, but this time I was on the hunt for skincare and I found two of my favorite lotions. The first is the Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream.

IMG_6406

I’ve been using the Bum Bum cream since winter last year and it quickly became one of my favorite body creams and a go to of mine. This is fast absorbing and helps tighten the appearance of skin. It has Guarana extract, Cupuacu Butter, Acai Oil and Coconut Oil. This is also one of my favorite scents, the salted caramel and pistachio are just so good. 

IMG_6407

The second lotion I picked up is the Sol de Janeiro Coco Cabana Cream

IMG_6408

If you want incredible moisturization then this is the cream for you. This deeply hydrates and makes skin so smooth. This has a variety of oils and is whipped with the Sol de Janeiro CocoSugar Blend to give you up to 72 hours of hydration. The scent of this is also really nice, it’s the Sol de Janeiro Cheirosa ’39 fragrance which is coconut cream from young green coconuts, tropical orchid and toasted praline. 

IMG_6409

So I have a Bum Bum cream that is the biggest size and I keep that in my bathroom, then I have two of the “purse size”, one Bum Bum cream and one Coco Cabana cream, which are the 0.84 fl oz/25 ml that I keep on my bedside table. These two are also purse size and they’re replacements for my others because I was running low and now that it’s starting to get colder I know I’m going to be using lotions and body creams more.

That about wraps it up for this post, the October BoxyCharm Add-Ons Sale will open on October 12th for Premium and Luxe members and October 13th will be all access. If you bought anything from the September sale I’d love to know what you got. 

Until next time, have fun shopping and you can never have too many lotions and body creams :).

Sephora Birthday Gift 2020

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be talking about the 2020 Sephora birthday gift. January has been so busy for me that I totally forgot about it until I opened my Sephora app the other day and got the reminder. So there is a couple of different options with the birthday gift, for those who are Beauty Insiders you can choose from the Milk Makeup Mascara and Lip + Cheek Set, which includes the Kush Mascara, Lip + Cheek stick which is a dusty rose color that doubles as a blush and lip color and a Hydro Grip Primer packet. The Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream and Coco Cabana Cream Set and the Briogeo Mini Charcoal + Coconut Oil Shampoo and Mini Deep Conditioning Mask Set. Those who are VIB and Rouge can choose from those three along with an exclusive of a Jo Malone Mini Wood Sage and Sea Salt Cologne.

I chose the Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream and Coco Cabana Cream Set. The Bum Bum cream is one of my favorites so this was an easy choice for me. On the top of the box it says Happy Birthday! Joyeux Anniversaire! Feliz Aniversario! Which I think is a nice little detail.

IMG_5033

IMG_5034

So I have used, and am currently using, the Bum Bum cream. It’s one of my favorite lotions and scents. This is quick absorbing and really does help to smooth the skin. It has guarana, a native Amazonian plant, cupuacu butter, acai and coconut oil.

IMG_5036

IMG_5035

The Coco Cabana cream is one that I haven’t tried but I’ve heard a ton of great things about it and now I can tell you that it smells amazing. They call it a moisture rich oil-in-water cream that instantly soothes and hydrates the skin. I did do a little test and it feels really moisturizing. It has a blend of CocoSugar which is supposed to draw moisture from the air when it’s applied, coconut oil and cupuacu butter which is helps to lock in moisture and heighten the hydration of the skin.

IMG_5037

IMG_5038

That about wraps it up for this post, overall I’m super happy with my choice of birthday gift and excited to incorporate these creams into my bodycare routine. If you guys use these creams I’d love to know which scent is your favorite.

Until next time, enjoy the Sephora birthday gifts and you can never have too many body lotions :).

December Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month I thought this would be the perfect time to do my December favorites. This month has been really busy, but I did manage to try new products and find some things I love. With that being said, let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my December Sephora Play Box and I’ll link that below. The first favorite is the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea-Drink H2O Hydrating Boost Moisturizer. I’ve been using this since I got it and so far I’m really liking it. It has hyaluronic acid and squalane to plump and hydrate, Rainforest of the Sea complex to help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles and an electrolyte balancing complex to moisturize and promote balanced skin. I think the Rainforest of the Sea collection is fantastic, so I recommend it.

DCSP2

My next beauty favorite is the Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in Blacquer 42. I have a couple of these and I think they’re so good. They glide on really smooth, they’re long wearing and they don’t smudge.

DCSP3

My second to last beauty favorite is the Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream. This is one of the best creams out there, in my opinion, it’s a holy grail cream for a lot of people. It smells incredible, it’s fast absorbing and it makes my skin super soft. This is a product I will always recommend.

DCSP6

And my last beauty favorite is from the Fab Fit Fun Starter Box, I’ll link that post down below. This is the Moroccan Gold Series Leave-In Mask. You spray this in your hair when it’s damp and comb through. It nourishes and conditions, helps to detangle and locks in moisture. I’ve been using this since I got it and I can see a little difference in my hair. Plus is smells really good.

FFF8

My next favorite is a TV show and it’s Brian Johnson’s A Life On The Road on AXS. The basis of the show is AC/DC’s Brian Johnson sits down with his musician friends and they talk about the person’s career and a little bit about their life. I love shows like this and I’ve been really enjoying it.

And my last favorite is Paul Rodgers The Royal Sessions album. I discovered this album while watching an episode of A Life On The Road and I’m glad I did. Paul Rodgers has always been one of my favorites, other musicians call him The Voice and say that he’s probably never sung a wrong note and honestly they’re not wrong. He’s been doing this for so long and his voice is so solid. The Royal Sessions album has a mix of blues, soul and rhythm and blues songs. I think it’s really fun and it’s produced so well. I definitely recommend giving it a listen if you haven’t.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites this month let me know and if not I’d love to know what your December favorites were.

Until next time, I want to thank each and every one of you for reading, following, liking, commenting, and sharing, it means a lot and here’s to a great 2020 :).

What I Got For Christmas 2019

Hi everyone,

Today I thought it would be fun to share with you guys what I got for Christmas. I do want to say that I’m in no way trying to brag, I’m one of those people that enjoy reading and watching this type of post. This year I didn’t have a real list of things I wanted, so I was happily surprised by a few of these gifts.

The first thing we have is what was in my stocking. Besides my favorite candy, there was a Bath and Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar mist and body lotion. It’s my favorite scent from Bath and Body Works. Along with that there was a little flashlight, I love little practical things like this and you can never have too many flashlights. The last two things that were in my stocking were a mini Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Loose Setting Powder infused with peach and sweet fig milk and the Peach Kiss Lipstick in Sex On The Peach.

WIGC1

I used the setting powder yesterday and today and I really like it. Added bonus, it smells like peaches. The lipstick also smells like peaches and it’s a comfort matte, long wearing and also infused with peach and sweet fig milk. Too Faced lipsticks are always really pigmented and this one is no different. I believe there are 13 shades of the Peach Kiss Lipsticks and I’m definitely going to be purchasing a few more.

WIGC2

WIGC3

Continuing on with the beauty theme, the first thing I unwrapped was the Too Faced Christmas Cookie House Party set. I was honestly so, so shocked to see this because I had mentioned it in a text to my mom like right after it came out then didn’t say anything after. I was considering buying this for myself as a Christmas gift but it was sold out on Sephora and Too Faced when I looked but for whatever reason I didn’t check at my local Sephora and they had a couple left which I’m super happy about. I’m going to be doing a separate post on this, so I’m not going to get into it too much, but I will say that yesterday I wore a couple of the shadows and I’m really happy with them. It was a good makeup day.

WIGC14

WIGC15

The second beauty item I got was the Sephora Collection Frosted Kisses Lip Stories Lipstick Set. This is also going to get it’s own post, but I will say that I’ve swatched all of these, wore one on Christmas Day and I’m wearing one now. I’m really liking them and I recommend them.

WIGC13

Next up we have a fashion item and it’s this light powder pink shoulder bag from H&M. I have a few different handbags and clutches but nothing like this. Like I said this is a light powder pink suede with silver hardware and leathery handles. It has a snap closure, one medium sized pocket on the very front, the main compartment and another pocket inside the main. You can adjust the way you wear it, so if the handles are the same length then it’s a shoulder bag, but if you stretch it out you can wear it like a crossbody. I didn’t realize when I was taking the pictures that it was a little crooked but that’s because of the pull on the door and not that bag.

WIGC9

WIGC10

WIGC11

WIGC12

Moving on we have a couple of practical things. The first is a 2020 Erin Condren Planner. I got my first Erin Condren Planner last Christmas and it was an absolute game changer, so I knew I had to have one for the new year. This will be getting it’s own post, but I did go for a different pattern, different colors and I put my first and middle name on it.

WIGC6

WIGC7

The second practical gift I got was a calendar. I have a couple of calendars that I use for different things and sometimes they’re different sizes but this one is my main calendar. There are two or three themes I typically go for when it comes to calendars, this one is jet themed. And has some great pictures.

WIGC4

WIGC5

And the last thing we have is music related, and it’s the Doobie Brothers Live From The Beacon Theatre Blu-Ray and CD Set. I talked about this when it came out, I have it on my phone and they showed a little bit of it on PBS. I like to have a physical copy of music, hence the CD Set and if I can help it I buy all discs in Blu-Ray. So I’m excited to have a music night and watch the full concert.

WIGC8

That about wraps it up for this post, I did also receive some socks, because it’s not Christmas if you don’t get socks, and a mug but it’s currently in the dishwasher because I used it this morning.

Until next time, enjoy your gifts and I hope you all had an amazing Christmas :).

Blogmas Day Eleven: December Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Eleven! Today I’m going to be going through and unboxing my December Sephora Play Box. This was delayed because of holidays, but I’m very happy to have it now. The theme for this month is Award Worthy Beauty. These are products that are some of the best of the year. The bag itself is plastic with a snap and lock closure on the top. The front is a pretty see through purple with various beauty and lifestyle objects and ‘Play! By Sephora’ in the middle. The back is white and it says ‘Good things come to those who PLAY! #SephoraPlay’ written in purple.

DCSP1

The first product we have is the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea-Drink of H2O Hydrating Boost Moisturizer. This has hyaluronic acid and squalane to plump and hydrate the skin, the Rainforest of the Sea complex to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and an electrolyte balancing complex to promote balanced skin and moisturize. I really like Tarte and I think their Rainforest of the Sea range is great so I’m excited to try this.

DCSP2

Next we have the Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in Blacquer 42. I’m wearing this now and I have another one of these and I really like them. They’re long wearing, they glide on really smooth and I definitely recommend them if you’re looking for a new eyeliner.

DCSP3

Moving on we have the Grande Cosmetics GrandeDRAMA Intense Thickening Mascara in Black. I’ve been seeing Grande Cosmetics everywhere and hearing a lot about them but until now I haven’t tried any of their products. This mascara has Caster oil and along with the fact that this gives your lashes lift and volume, the Caster oil helps to give a glossy finish. The brush is a nice size and it looks like it would coat all your lashes well.

DCSP4

DCSP8

The next product we have is the Ouai Body Cleanser. This has Jojoba oil to hydrate and soothe the skin, Rose hip oil to nurture and moisturize and Lactobacillus ferment which is a skin balancing probiotic. This smells really good and I’m interested to try it.

DCSP5

The second to last product we have is the Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream. This is a holy grail cream for so many people. It smells incredible, it’s fast absorbing and it makes your skin feel really soft. I can’t even tell you how much I recommend this.

DCSP6

And the last product we have, this months bonus, is the Drybar Blonde Ale Brightening Shampoo and Conditioner. This is a purple shampoo and conditioner so it counteracts brassiness and prevents color degradation along with boosting vibrancy and adding shine to blonde and highlighted hair. I do have blonde hair but I don’t often use purple shampoo and conditioner, so we’ll see how I like it.

DCSP7

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your December 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 :).

Blogmas Day Eight: Fab Fit Fun Starter Box Unboxing and Review

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Eight! Today I’m going to be doing something that I really enjoy and that’s an unboxing and review. This time it’s the Fab Fit Fun Starter Box. I’ve been interested by the Fab Fit Fun boxes for a while and during Black Friday the starter boxes were $5.00, so I picked one up.

FFF1

When I opened this box the first two things I saw were a magazine that tells you all about the boxes and Fab Fit Fun as a whole. And a card that gives you a breakdown of what’s in the box.

FFF2

There are four products in this box, and the first one we have is the Grown Alchemist Hydra-Repair Day Cream Camellia, Geranium Blossom. This is a facial moisturizer that is supposed to hydrate and help your skin to look soothed, smoothed and give you a good base for applying your makeup without giving you any shine or making you look oily. This has Camellia and Rosehip Oil, Aloe, Jojoba Oil, Cane Sugar and Geranium Blossom. Grown Alchemist is an Australian brand that I hadn’t heard of before, but I’m interested to see how this cream works out. I’ll let you guys know what I think.

FFF3

FFF4

Next we have the Spongelle Body Wash Infused Buffer in Black Orchid. This is a flower shaped buffer. What you do is run this under water and it changes from this hard more exfoliating texture to a really soft body washer. This scent is on the stronger side, you can smell it immediately after opening the box, but it’s not overpowering. I’ve heard good things about these, so I’m excited to try it.

FFF5

FFF6

The second to last product we have is the Moroccan Gold Series Leave-in Mask. You spray this in damp hair and comb through and it’s supposed to bring life back into your hair by reversing damage, dullness and dryness. Nourish and condition in addition to locking in moisture and helping to detangle. I quite like hair masks like this and this one smells really good.

FFF7

FFF8

And the last product we have is the Yumi Kim Hanging Train Case. This case is light pink with a floral pattern, a gold Yumi Kim badge on the top, gold zippers and two handles on top. When you open it you see two large pockets, both with gold zippers and a black fold out pocket that has a hanger on top so you can hang this case anywhere.

FFF9

FFF10

FFF12

FFF11

That about wraps it up for this post, I honestly am impressed by the entire box. If you guys have used any of these products or use them now, I’d love to know your thoughts.

Until next time, enjoy your products and you can never subscribe to too many subscription boxes :).

Fall Walmart Beauty Box Review

Hi everyone,

Today I’m back with another Walmart Beauty Box, this time Fall. I did skip the Summer box but that wasn’t on purpose, I got a new card, forgot to resubscribe and by the time I remembered it was time for the Fall box and here we are. The theme for this box is Fall Faves. The box itself is white with a magenta Walmart logo in the center and the tissue paper that’s wrapped around the products is the same color.

FWB1

FWB2

The first product we have is the Clean & Clear Lemon Zesty Scrub with Vitamin C. This is supposed to gently buff and brighten and is oil free. They have a whole lemon and vitamin C range, and while I don’t use Clean & Clear I know someone who will absolutely love this.

FWB3

Next we have the Biore Witch Hazel Ultra  Deep Cleansing Pore Strips. This is supposed to remove 2x more deep pore clogs. I love a good pore strip and I actually haven’t tried these so I’m interested to see how it works.

FWB4

Moving on we have the NYX Lip Lingerie in 16, Cheekies. This is a warm pinky nude shade and it’s really pretty. I have a couple of these and I really like them, they dry down to a nice matte, they’re light on the lips and they’re long lasting.

FWB5

The next product we have is the Nivea Coconut and Monoi Oil lotion. I’ve used Nivea lotions in the past and found them to be really moisturizing and always great smelling.

FWB6

The second to last product we have is the Schick Intuition f.a.b. razor. This came at the perfect time because I was going to buy a new razor. So I’ve been using this since I got it and I like it. This has moisture gel so it glides really smooth and with this razor you can shave forwards and backwards.

FWB7

And the last product we have is the Sofia Vergara Lost In Paradise perfume. This has a floral and fruity scent with a woody undertone. It does smell nice but I think for me personally it’s a little too floral.

FWB8

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your Fall Box 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 season :).

Summer 2019 Post Shower Moisturizing Routine

Hi everyone,

Today I’m doing something that I haven’t done before, and that’s sharing my post shower moisturizing routine for this summer. I have done quite a few seasonal skincare posts, but never expanded beyond my face, and I thought why not. With that being said, let’s get into it.

I have two routines, one for the morning, which is the one I do most often and the other for nighttime. So the first thing I do after I shower is moisturize my body, which in the past has not been my favorite, probably because of the lotions I was using. But a few months ago, in the winter Walmart beauty box, I got a travel size Curel Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer and within the first two or three times of using it I was hooked. Because it’s a wet skin moisturizer you put it on right after you shower. It sinks in quickly, there’s no greasy feeling afterwards and you towel dry and continue on with your day. My skin loves it, it’s been so soft and smooth and I’m loving it. You can get this at any drugstore, it’s about the same price at all of them, and I believe you can get it on Amazon as well.

PSR1

My next step is to moisturize my feet. For the longest time this wasn’t something I did, I just didn’t think of it, but now that I’ve been doing it for a while I wouldn’t go back. For this I use the Gold Bond Ultimate Healing with Aloe. I use this during the winter as one of my hand lotions and it’s so good. It’s a little bit thicker but it sinks in pretty quickly and you don’t feel sticky or greasy after. Along with the aloe it has vitamins A, C and E. I just ran out of this, so I need to buy another and you can also get this lotion at any drugstore.

PSR2

After that I move on to my face and for that I’ve been using two products. The first is the Sephora Collection All Day Hydrator-Hydrate and Glow. I will pop this on before I put my makeup on, it has hyaluronic acid, glycerin as well as vitamins C and E. I really like this, it protects your skin from anything harsh in the environment while boosting the moisture that’s in your skin. It basically makes your skin really soft and smooth. The second product I use is the Ren Clean Skincare Global Protection Day Cream. I wear this on the days that I shower and don’t wear makeup. This has a ton of antioxidants, protects from UV damage, soothes the skin and has antiaging benefits. I’ve only been using this for a little while but I do like it. My skin definitely feels hydrated.

JUSP2

AUSP4

And my last step is my lips. Normally I pop on a little of my Vanilla Softlips before I do my makeup. But on the days I don’t wear makeup I use the Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy in Dream. This smells really good, is very moisturizing and slightly plumping plus it gives you a nice light pink on the lips.

AF3

APB4

For my nighttime routine, I only change a few things. It’s still Curel Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer first.

PSR1

Then the Gold Bond Ultimate Healing with Aloe.

PSR2

In the beginning of summer I was using the Sephora Collection All Day Hydrator-Hydrate and Glow at night as well. But now I’m using the Algenist Genius Sleeping Collagen. I’ve been talking about this a lot lately but I absolutely love it and my skin loves it.

JUSP2

AUSP3

And for my lips I use the Vanilla Softlips pretty much every night but on the night where I want a little more I use the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in Vanilla. It smells really good and it’s very hydrating.

AF3

JUSP5

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 the products you do use.

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

Winter Walmart Beauty Box Review

Hi everyone,

Today we’re going to be talking about a new beauty subscription box, the Walmart Beauty Box. Back in late December I was scrolling through Instagram and saw a post about this box, and having never heard of it I was interested. So I looked it up and for the sake of wanting to try new/different subscription boxes in 2019, I bought it. This is a box that you get four times a year, winter, spring, summer and fall. I believe there are two or three different versions of this box that you can get and all you pay is $5.00 for shipping. You get six products plus a bag, the products range in size and there’s an array of brands. And the theme for this season is Hydration Heroes and I got the Trendsetter box.

WWBB2

WWBB1

When you open the box there’s a stack of cards on top that tell you the theme and info on some of the products.

WWBB3

The first product I saw in this box was the Cetaphil Hydrating Eye Gel-Cream with Hyaluronic Acid. This is supposed to lock in moisture, brighten and smooth skin, all while hydrating for 24 hours. I already have an eye cream that I love, but I would be interested to see how this compares.

WWBB9

The second product we have is the Garnier SkinActive Soothing 3-in-1 Moisturizer. This can be used as a day cream, night cream and mask. This one is made with rose water, which is very hydrating and no matter how you use this it’s supposed to give you a ton of hydration and soothe your skin. And it’s made without parabens, silicones or dyes.

WWBB10

Next we have the Garnier Fructis Damage Repairing Treat 1 Minute Hair Mask. In total there are five of these Garnier hair masks. Nourish Dry Hair, Smooth Frizzy Hair, Protect Color Vibrancy, Strengthen Weak Hair and this one. This particular one has papaya extract and that’s really good for making your hair soft and smooth. This can be used three ways, as a mask, a conditioner and as a leave-in. I’ve never used one of these before, but I’ve heard good things.

WWBB11

Moving on we have the Olay Daily Facials Daily Hydrating Clean with Grapeseed Extract. This is a makeup wipe that you run under water and it becomes a 5-in-1 makeup remover, scrub, toner, mask and cleanser. Way back when I first started wearing makeup my mom used the Olay makeup wipes, so I am familiar. I’ve mentioned that I rarely use makeup wipes to take my makeup off now, but I am interested to see how these have changed since the last time I used one.

WWBB8

The second to last product we have is the Curel HydraTherapy Wet Skin Moisturizer. You apply this to your skin after you shower/take a bath and it’s supposed to get rid of dry skin and leave you feeling really soft and moisturized. I have a friend that uses this and she loves it. I don’t have any wet skin moisturizers, so I’m excited to try this out and I’ll let you guys know what I think.

WWBB7

The last product is the Soo Ae Unicorn Glow Hologram Mask. This is a charcoal mask that is supposed to detox and brighten you skin. I love face masks, so I’m looking forward to trying this one.

WWBB6

The very last thing in this box is the bag. This is a silver/pewter color, it has light blue rain drops on one side and the Walmart logo on the other side. A black lining on the inside and a tassel pull on the zipper. This bag is 5 by 7, so it can hold quite a few things.

WWBB4

WWBB5

That about wraps it up for this post, overall, I think that $5.00 this is a good deal. I probably will continue with this, to see what products the other seasons bring. I will leave a link down below if you guys are interested. And if you got the winter Walmart Beauty Box, which box did you get and what’s your favorite product?

Until next time, here’s to trying more new things and you can never subscribe to too many subscription boxes :).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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 :).
