i had a lot of fun putting together my first post in my "give me your clothes" series.so much so that i decided to start another one called "how do i live without you?"
basically, the purpose of this series is going to be to share the items i
can't live without.
**i use the word can't for dramatic effect...
now, i've never been one to use creams and serums.
but after reading an article that explained that what you do (or don't do) in your 20s can affect what your skin will look like in the future, i've since changed my ways.so, i'd like to start off this new series by talking about some of the skin care products i've been loving recently!
i've always heard great things about this eye cream but the price was just not right.
but after receiving a sample from sephora, i decided to take the plunge.
with a couple dabs of this creme, dark circles and/or puffiness under the eyes disappear!
2 - clarisonic mia
♫♫ all i need in this life of sin, is me and my clarisonic (me and my clarisonic) ♫♫
seriously, hands down, the best little contraption ever - my skin is brighter and smoother than it's ever been.
plus, i love that you can use any cleanser with it.
3 - rosewater toner (burt's bees)
i have very sensitive skin, so most toners and astringents burn my skin - no bueno.
i picked up this toner at my local walmart as it was on sale and have been using it ever since.
it contains gylercin and witch hazel along with rosewater to tone skin and tighten pores.
4 - tea tree oil (body shop)
it smells terrible but it works wonders on any old blemishes you may have on your skin.
i just put some on a q-tip, plug my nose, put it on my face and watch any dark marks disappear.
5 - apricot scrub (st. ives)
i've been using this scrub since i was 13 and will use it until i am old and grey.
it's cheap and effective and can be used as a full body scrub as well.
6 - boo boo zap (benefit)
even after using all the products mentioned above, i still do get the odd pimple.
which is when i pull out my trusty boo boo zap it as it helps reduce any redness or swelling.
it also goes on clear which means it can be worn under makeup.
so, those are some of the skin care products that i'm loving right now.
i'd love to hear about any products you've tried and swear by.
particularly, any good moisturizers as i have yet to find one that i love.
