I love a good moisturizer. This is currently my new favorite day/under my makeup moisturizer because you all know how obsessed I am with my Nivea one, but it can be really heavy so I prefer to only where that one at night. This moisturizer is perfect to combat any dryness due to the upcoming cold weather and also great for ladies with oily complexions such as myself. The hydroblurness (is that a word?😆) leaves my oily skin nice and matte while still giving me the hydration I need. This doesn’t have spf so I put it on after my favorite sunscreen and before I put on my primer.
Here’s another oil-based mask that I added to my obsession with facial oils. Yes To makes great masks and their argan oil one is the first mask that got me hooked on putting oil on my face. This is one of their newest masks and I love to put it on after I’ve gone crazy and picked at my face and it’s lit up like a Christmas tree 😳 The primrose oil calms my skin and reduces the redness and leaves it super soft.

A good self tanner is SO hard to find. I’m always trying new ones and this one is pretty good. It dries really fast and has a really nice, non-orange tan color. It comes out kind of thick so just make sure you rub it in well. I also don’t get the sticky feeling I get afterwards with many so I don’t mind putting this on during the day and throwing on some clothes over it and running some errands. As with any other self tanner make sure you wash your hands really well afterwards. I always just use facial wipes to clean my hands because anytime I wash my hands under the sink I splash water on me and mess up my tan. It comes in two color options, light to medium and medium to tan. I use the latter.
Turmeric is that yellow spice you can find at the grocery store or in one of your favorite Indian dishes. It combined with other ingredients such as chickpea flour, cold pressed coconut oil, cane sugar etc. makes this scrub natural, vegan, and paraben-free. This mask has some great immediate benefits such as soft glowing skin, even skin tone, and oil control. After longer use it will fade scars, reduce facial hair, and clear up acne. So here’s the deal. It’s going to be REALLY yellow on your face. It can even leave a yellow tint after washing your face, but just make sure to wash it again and it will go away. I did have a french manicure on at the time and well that was not a good idea. Make sure you use the mask right before you need to get your nails redone or wear some gloves.
My version of double cleanse has always been to use a cleanser with my Clarisonic and then rubbing a cotton ball with micellar water over my face to pick up any makeup I missed. Well I first got this Precleanse in a travel set at Ulta and I’ve been obsessed with it ever since and recently bough the big bottle. I massage this with dry hands first to break up my makeup then get my hands wet and massage it more and it turns white and milky. You can see all your makeup REALLY washing off then I rinse it with warm water and use my cleanser and Clarisonic. It’s great for making your face look and feel squeaky clean without overdrying it. The big bottle is kind of pricey, but it’s really big and you really only need one big pump each time you wash your face so it’ll last you awhile.
