Excited to have a beauty review up this month. Raise your hand if you are so over the painted eyebrows, 10 layers of foundation and concealer (I blame the Kardashians lol). I’ve been trying to find my core products for my skincare needs, so that I don’t have to rely on makeup. it’s been going great because I am obsessed with 90% of what I’m using lately. I’ll make sure to review them and give you honest feedback. It can be hard to trust bloggers when it comes to beauty, for example I don’t use Olay so I declined when they reached out to me. I’m sure the pay would have been nice but I would hate to promote something that I know I would never use.
I recently tried a new eye cream and will keep you posted after I use it for 2 to 4 weeks. I have the worst dark circles and this is one of the last product I wanted to add to the rotation.
Peter Thomas Roth Potent C is my daytime serum and it has done wonders for my overall complexion. I always follow it with a moisturizer and spf. You can read about the benefits of Vitamin C here. I often hear people talk about getting that glowy/dewy look with their makeup, but I found that once my skin is doing well I naturally achieve that look with minimal makeup. If you don’t have a vitamin C serum in your routine, I highly recommend getting one. Now I don’t think you need to get this exact one, there’s several others out there with great reviews and better prices, find them below. However, I think I will stick to that one for now.
Creme Dermopurifiante. I have super oily skin and the extra sebum clogs my pore causing me to breakout. I’ve found products that help with the excess oil but I really wanted a night moisturizer that gave me intense hydration without clogging my pores. This moisturizer was made for breakouts prone skin and I love it. It’s just under $100 but it’s a pretty big jar, I’ve been using it for over a month and only made a small dent in it.
TLC Sukari Babyfacial is one of my weekly masks. You can learn more about AHA & BHA here, they are basically exfoliating acids. This is one of the key products I have to use to keep blemishes at bay, this one is crucial for me specially around that time of the month when my skin is going crazy. It does sting a lot when you first put it on but it goes aways after 30 seconds or less. When I do this mask I always use a face oil on top of my moisturizer, to seal the moisture in.
Glossier Lash Slick, my last review is not skincare but the new mascara by Glossier that is AMAZING! I am not exaggerating, it lengthens your lashes and doesn’t clump at all. Lately my go to makeup look is a light foundation powder, this mascara and lipgloss.
None of these products were gifted to me.
