Over the past few weeks I’ve introduced quite a few new skincare products to my daily routine and I have some thoughts! Good thoughts, at that! Here’s a rundown on the products I’ve been using for a time span that’s allowed me to form an informed opinion.
As Summer break approaches, I have to say I feel like I have a better handle on life this year as opposed to last. Last year was a bit chaotic in my non-blog life and I found myself falling asleep in my makeup maybe 4 days out of 7. I was exhausted and didn’t care! It really did take a toll on my skin’s texture and clarity, so I’m glad to say things are so much better right now.
Did you know that patting skincare product into your face is a thing? I’ve seen women at the gym who do have rather nice skin do this, and after seeing the method highlighted on Instagram, have adopted it as well.
In other skincare news, Sephora has recently introduced The Inkey List, a skincare line with prices that are comparative to The Ordinary. I’ve placed an order and am looking forward to seeing how the brands compare.
I’m on my second bottle of this antioxidant and peptide serum which I use at night after cleansing and toning my skin. I’m attributing it to increased skin clarity.
I’ve been using this every other night and woo-wee, I’m definitely getting a second bottle as well. It helps with texture and improves smoothness. I’ve used Retin A in the past and went through the horrible skin peeling that happens when you start using it – not the case here and zero flaky skin is involved.
I mentioned a while back that I use Aztec Secret clay mask on a regular basis to keep my oily skin under control. It works, and then some! I’ve been souping it up recently, mixing it with equal parts of manuka honey and apple cider vinegar. I’m in love with this combination. Smooth skin abounds.
