Let me tell you, this week has been something else. I am actually excited that it’s Monday. Which is really weird, but sometimes it’s nice to start over and freshen up.
And speaking of fresh, it’s time to talk skincare!
I love when Spring begins, mainly because it’s means that my skin can finally start to breath again. My skin goes really dry in the winter, like most people. That means that I have to have a pretty hefty hydrating skincare routine to get me through the cooler months, and luckily I found the perfect, cruelty free agenda.
An agenda I love so much that I’m carrying most of these products into Spring with me. I’m going to share with you some of my favs for Spring skincare, how I use them, how often I use them, and some tips that have worked wonders for me.
Let me telllllll you. It took me forever to find a cleanser that worked for me. I tried EVERYTHING in the drugstore, Sephora, and Ulta. The one I finally was recommended turned out to be a LIFESAVER. This skincare brand has changed. my. life.
Let’s start with the the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser.
With 4.4 stars on Sephora’s ratings, it’s a bestseller for many amazing reasons. The cleanser works for all, and I mean ALL skin types, and it’s known for combating dryness, dullness, and uneven texture. And it really works. I have seen such a dramatic change in my skin from my redness being almost gone to it being more hydrated without me having to use heavy creams. I don’t have to moisturize nearly as much as I used to with this cleanser.
Ladies, get ready. It also takes off your makeup like a charm. I know many face washes that claim to ‘easily remove makeup’ but this one actually works. I don’t wear much eye makeup (if any) but when I have, it comes right off with this cleanser. I promise you, if you’re having trouble with redness, uneven tones, and dryness… You have to give this product a try. I’ve linked it at the bottom of this post along with all of the products pictured, but you can get this product in the ‘sample’ section of Sephora for only $15 (1.7 oz) so that you can try it before buying the larger bottle (5.1 oz) for $38.
While staying on my obsession with Fresh, let’s head over to my moisturizer. This was also a tough obstacle for me, as I always picked products that were too heavy and actually drying my skin out rather than helping it. I loved this brand already so much and I had heard great things about their Rose line.
And folks, this line is no joke. I have fallen in love with the Fresh Rose Deep Hydrating Cream.
With a 4.3 star rating, this product claims to deliver intense 24 hour hydration by using a time-release technology and using ‘an advanced combination of hyaluronic acids helps to increase moisture for deep hydration to support healthy skin elasticity.’
This is another product that I swear by. I use this product mostly at night, and I wake up with the softest and most hydrated skin. Usually I would have to use a lot of moisturizer in the morning also but with this product, all I do is rinse my face in the morning with warm water, and then use the tiniest amount ( and I mean tiny, because that’s all you need ) on my face when I apply my foundation and it blends in sooo smoothly. I highly suggest that you click the link at the bottom of the page and shop this ASAP because if it works as well for you as it does for me, you will not regret it.
Next up, lets talk eyes.
I’ve tried a lot of products and I truly do love the Tarte Pack Your Bags under Eye Patches. They really are a dream. but, if you’re trying to be (way) more cost worthy and use these on a more regular basis, grab the Que Bella Professional Moisturizing Gel Eye Masks.
Another excuse to go to Target? Sure, I’ll take it,
Yes, you can find these babies at your local Target. And they are actually amazing! These little gems come in a 3 pack and they help moisturize to reduce puffiness and dark circles. I use these when I’m having a ‘pamper’ night and I love them. And they are $2.99. Guys, come on. Getcha some.
A few more favs I am loving are…
Trader Joe’s Rose Water Facial Toner – YES. Trader Joe’s come through! I have heard so many amazing things about this toner so when I was last grocery shopping, I figured I’d pick it up. I am loving it, it’s so refreshing and it’s an amazing price, Definitely pick this up next time you’re in!
Loving Tan – If you haven’t seen my post on this amazing-ness, click here to read all about it, shop it, and learn a couple tips and tricks for getting the best tan with this amazing product. I’ve linked this product below too!
Catastrophe Cosmetic – This LUSH face mask (like all of their others) are is amazing. It’s a blueberry packed balancer that calms your skin and soothes redness. Yas Lush, yaaas.
Bath & Body Works Recharge Lotion – I picked this product up at one of the store’s huge 75% off sales that they do and I have actually been loving it. It has hints of sage & mint in it that help sharpen your senses. It’s out of stock most places, but check your local store to see if you can snag some!
You know what time it is, time to shop! Shop alll of the goodies I talked about in this post, and the pretty jewelry featured in my photos, below!
