MORNING SKINCARE ROUTINE
I've been using this cleanser for about three weeks now. I had credit on my Glossier account and was running low on cleanser so I figured I would give it a try. I like the consistency and that it doesn't foam. I also like that it's gentle and leaves my skin feeling clean. However, I have to say, I like the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser better. The Fresh cleanser is the holy grail of all cleansers IMO. I was looking to try something new, and not that I was disappointed, but I will definitely go back to this cleanser by Fresh.
After cleansing, I love applying a vitamin C serum right away. This one by Drunk Elephant is a game changer. It's more potent than the one I was using prior, and it totally makes a difference. I had a few dark spots on my face but they have lightened significantly since using this serum! The consistency is a little tackier than I'm used to but it absorbs nicely with moisturizer applied on top.
*Tip: purchase the sample size here (comes in a day time duo of serum & hydrating gel) to see how you like it before committing to the full size! The sample size is still going strong after four weeks & I will definitely be purchasing the full size once I run out!
This face cream is another game changer. As soon as I started using it, my skin was softer and had a more even tone within days! I originally used it at night, but have since switched it to morning. It's great for either time of day and wears well under makeup. You can catch my full review of it here.
NIGHT TIME SKINCARE ROUTINE
Again, I tried this cleanser because I had credit on my Glossier account & was looking to switch things up. It does take most of my makeup off at night which is nice. Like I said above, I'm not disappointed in it, but I do prefer the Fresh Soy Face Cleanser instead!
YOUNG LIVING SEEDLINGS BABY WIPES
So many girls on my team raved about using Young Living's baby wipes as makeup remover wipes so I had to give them a try! Let me tell you, I was not disappointed! I can use them before cleansing if I have a lot of makeup I want to take off, or I can use them after cleansing to get the left over makeup off. They are super gentle and do not burn my eyes which is a plus!
*Tip: I also use these wipes to clean my all white Vince slip on sneakers and they WORK LIKE A CHARM. I love a product that is multi use!
I recently received a PR package from Fresh that included this facial toner and the moisturizer I talk about next. The toner impressed me SO much after just two nights! I had a mini breakout on my cheek, not sure why or how, but it was there and it wasn't going away ... UNTIL I used this toner on it! When I woke up in the morning and looked in the mirror, my skin looked brighter, more even, and the breakout was minimized! I was honestly shocked. Needless to say, this toner will be a staple in my routine from now on.
*Tip: a little bit goes a long way. Apply with a cotton pad!
I've used a handful of the Fresh face creams over the past few years, and they are all amazing. First, the packaging on this one is so pretty! But what's more important is that this cream is pretty lightweight and goes on smoothly. I love the scent and it definitely hydrates my skin! I mix it with a few drops of face oil and apply it right after the toner.
I love a good face oil and this one has been my go to over the past several months. It really helped my skin this winter, and has not let me down yet. I add a few drops to my moisturizer and it works wonders! Read my full review on it here.
I've wanted a rose quartz facial roller for some time now! Mostly because they're pretty, but also because they have great benefits. I use this facial tool at the end of my routine to really help the product absorb deep into my skin. I will also use it in the morning under my eyes to reduce puffiness. It is cool to the touch, and I start in the center of my face and roll it in an outward direction; they say not to go back and forth. I plan on writing a full review in a few weeks so stay tuned!
