ALRIGHT PEOPLE GET EXCITED! This post is full of my fav skincare goodies and I am excited to share it with you guys!
If you follow me on Instagram then you know I am obsessed with skincare. I love trying new products and I use them all with hopes of helping my Rosacea and Keratosis Polaris (KP). I know you want to get to the good stuff so let’s dive into this!
Oh and just to let y’all know in advance none of this is sponsored or in any way paid for by the brands, these are my honest opinions.
I recently have been looking into more “clean” skincare, including Summer Fridays, and Drunk Elephant. My skin is pretty sensitive and I have combo skin for sure, so I like to test products for a while before I give any reviews or recommend anything.
First up is Summer Fridays! I think there is a lot of hype around this brand and LET ME TELL YOU I love it! I got the Jet Lag Mask and it has been a game changer. Some girls mentioned putting it under my makeup and it makes makeup application so much smoother. The hydration is amazing, especially with winter. I don’t know about you, but my skin gets so dry in the winter! Another way to use it is to apply it before bed and let it soak in throughout the night- works like a charm and you wake up with dewy, soft skin!
Alright, my absolute fav skincare change is Drunk Elephant! It can be pricey, so if you aren’t sure about it, try the Littles! They’re all amazing and it will make you a fan for life. I tried the Lala Retro Whipped Cream first and it was so moisturizing. Then as a Christmas present I got the “Night Bright Duo” and that was a game changer. I loved it so much that I converted all the way and my skin has thanked me for it. My skin is softer, less irritated and I have less flareups than I ever have! If I had to recommend three products to get it would be:
- TLC Framboos Glycolic Night Serum
- Lala Retro Whipped Cream
- Peekee & Juju Bars
First is the TLC Framboos Serum. When I was first looking at what products I wanted to begin using this one wasn’t on my list. I just thought it wasn’t necessary and wow…I was wrong. This has helped so much with my skin texture and tone. My redness has been reduced and my texture is smoother. I love it and now it is a staple in my skincare routine.
Next up is Lala Retro which I already mentioned is SO moisturizing but it doesn’t leave a residue or anything gross like other facial moisturizers I have tried.
Last but certainly not least are the Peekee and Juju Bars! These are my daily skin cleansing bars I use every morning when I shower- I switch which one I use because you don’t want to exfoliate two days in a row. These have truly have reduced my breakouts and blackheads.
Some other products I like that aren’t necessarily “clean” but still work well are Laneige Water Sleeping Mask– like a cold drink of water for my skin. I also LOVE the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask. I know it says to put it on at night, but I use it throughout the day because my lips are so dry right now and it helps them stay moisturized and protected! The original one is great but I recently had to replace that one since I used it up (after 9 months of steady use!) so I got the Vanilla one and it has been BOMB!
I am a skincare junkie so I am sure I will do more skincare posts soon, but for now I hope you enjoyed this!
