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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Then the Gold Bond Ultimate Healing with Aloe.

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.

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.

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 :).

August Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I received my August Play Box from Sephora, and I thought today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme this month is Your Beauty Sidekicks, meaning these are products that make you feel like you have superpowers. The bag itself is plastic with a snap and lock closure, the front is a really pretty see through green with various beauty and lifestyle products and Play! By Sephora in the middle. The back is white and says ‘Open up for pocket-sized AMAZINGNESS #SephoraPlay’ written in green.

AUSP1

The first product we have is the Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base Priming Moisturizer. This is an oil free, antioxidant rich moisturizer that’s supposed to help protect your skin but you can also use it as a primer and in that form it’s supposed to lock in your makeup and help it to look smooth. I really like Bobbi Brown as a brand and I’m really interested to see how this works as both a moisturizer and a primer. I’ll let you guys know what I think.

AUSP2

The next product we have is the Algenist Genius Sleeping Collagen. This is a vegan collagen night cream that you put on right before you go to bed and it’s supposed to have given you smoother skin when you wake up. I’ve heard good things about this cream, so we’ll have to see how it performs.

AUSP3

Moving on we have the Ren Clean Skincare Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream. They say to make this cream the last step in your routine and because it’s full of antioxidants it’s supposed to hydrate and soothe your skin all through the day. I’ve used one product from Ren before and I liked it, so I’m interested to try this.

AUSP4

Next up we have the Sunday Riley A+ High-Dose Retinol Serum. Like other serums, you put this on before your moisturizer and this is supposed help combat dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles. I don’t use products like this often but Sunday Riley makes some amazing skincare and I’ll give it a go and see how my skin likes it. And don’t forget, if you’re going to use a retinol serum make sure to wear sunscreen the next day, protect your face.

AUSP5

The second to last product we have is the Buxom Full-On Plumping Lip Cream Gloss in Hot Toddy. I’ve used a few of these in various colors and they all plump your lips nicely, make them feel moisturized, they smell good and you get a nice color payoff. This one in particular is a really pretty warm nude. The only thing that I don’t love about these is I find them to be a little too sticky.

AUSP6

AUSP7

And the last product we have, this month’s bonus, is the Alterna Haircare Caviar Anti-Aging Smoothing Anti-Frizz Blowout Butter. This is a leave in cream for medium to thick hair and you apply it to your damp hair before styling and it is supposed to smooth and protect. I have a lot of hair and seeing it start to frizz, even a little, after styling it can be annoying. So I’m really interested to try this out.

AUSP8

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