Skincare Essentials for every season
These last few months I have been in skincare heaven. What I mean by that is, I haven't used a skincare product that I haven't liked. Even though that makes coming up with an actual routine a tad more difficult, I think I've found my groove with products that are helping keep my skin clear, looking fresh & giving me a great glow. 
Skincare Essentials for every season
In the shower using the Kiehl's ultra facial cleanser is amazing - I use it with my clairsonic three times a week and the other days I exfoliate with my trusty St. Ives Facial Scrub - I will never not buy this product! 
Origins Mask Kiehls facial cleanser
Once a week, usually on Sunday's I like to give my face a little extra loving and put this Origin's Clay Mask on. I purchased this back in August and still have a good amount left. The mask comes out pink (so fun) and then before completely drying leaves you with just a little tingle that goes away after the first or second minute. Is it weird that I love how tight the mask gets on my face...like I know it's working! 
After shower skincare
I was interested in trying micellar cleansing water because of all the reviews I kept seeing on it and I wanted to see what all the hype was about. I like to use this right after the shower because it picks up any extra makeup I may have missed and really does a great job of cleansing my face. You really get the super clean feeling with this stuff! I spotted Neutrogena's Hyrdo boost in a magazine and took a picture because of how much it reminded me of the belief aqua bomb I tried in a Sephora play box. It might not be an exact dupe, but it's really close!! Speaking of Belief, I've been using the moisturizing cream on nights when my skin feels extra dry. It's very light and you get an extra burst of hydration as soon as it's applied on the skin. 
Night Skincare Essentials
Before heading to bed it's a two step process - the first around the eyes. I've already raved about Kiehl's creamy eye treatment with avocado, but I'm here to shout out from the roof tops how much I love this cream!! I'm not sure at what point the dark circles started to appear, but I haven't been able to really find anything that works as well as this cream. It's pricier than most creams, but a little goes a long way, so it will last. The overnight mask from Origins is incredibly light weight, doesn't feel heavy on the skin and smells incredible! It keeps your face hydrated throughout the night and you end up waking up like you just had a facial - but without the redness! I think the product that's taken everyone by storm is the Ultra Repair moisturizer by First Aid Beauty. I only use this on my hands and it has saved me this winter and I even keep one at my desk! 
Skincare Essentials
I'm a fan of switching up my beauty products, but I feel like I've found a ton of great products that will continue to be in my rotation for quite some time!!



Have you used any of these products? What are some of your skincare favorites?

  1. I really need to pick up that Origins Clay Mask! I've hear so many goo things about it. And loving Micellar water lately. It's nice to have something else to make sure you've gotten all your makeup off. <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  3. I got an email from Sephora not too long ago about a VIB special with Origins products and ever since then I've felt like I needed to buy some! I haven't worn a mask in years and I know it's time to put one into my skincare routine! And it's awesome that Origins comes out pink!

  9. I used to be so loyal to Origins and then I stopped shopping at Macys so I stopped picking it up. Your post reminded me that I need to go back and get some of their products!

  12. Love this post! I have the Origins gray clay mask and I am so obsessed - I love it! I use the origins eye treatment for the day, but I don't have a night one, so I might go for the Kiehls. I don't have bad circles under my eyes, but I am super worried about wrinkles!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I grabbed the Garnier micellar water a few weeks ago and I was disappointed by how many cotton pads and water I had to use to remove my make up. Someone said they were using it instead of make up wipes but I dont find that to be the case for me. I like how you are using it to remove excess make up after you wash your face, so maybe I will do that instead. I love the Kiehls eye cream!!! It really did moisturize under my eyes like nothing else First Aid is always great.

  14. I keep meaning to try the First Aid Beauty line but seem to always forget to look for it when I'm in the store! Making a note now haha thanks for the reminder!

  40. I've been reading a lot of reviews about the Garnier cleansing water, too! I'm a bit confused, is it a toner, makeup remover or both? I've been trying to find an oil based makeup remover because I don't like tugging on my skin with wipes anymore. I'm not sure if this has any oil in it or if it's just good at taking off makeup, curious to know if you've tried it as remover. I was given the Neutrogena hydro boost and I have yet to use it, I don't know why really, haha! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, I really enjoyed this post! I hope you're having the best start to your day so far!

  42. It's always such a relief when we find products that work well on our skin and we love enough to keep using! The sound of the Origins Overnight Mask entices me, might have to look into it.

  58. i almost bought the neutrogena hydro boost thing the other day but when i got to the store, there were 2 different ones and i got overwhelmed not knowing which one to buy haha. i have been feeling really blah with my skincare lately and like i really need to step it up. i don't mind buying drugstore makeup or a few skincare things, but i don't mind investing on things that last a long time or really work, so i am going to try out that eye cream for sure.
