Happy Friday babes! I can’t believe we are just one week away from wedding day! It’s seriously such a surreal feeling! All the planning and preparation is finally coming together and I can’t wait to see how everything turns out!
If you’ve been following for a while, you know skincare is number one in my book. Over the summer, I made it a goal to start incorporating more nontoxic beauty products into my routine. My long term goal is to only be using nontoxic beauty products; however, i’m finding it to be really hard to make the commitment when there are some brands that I’ve been using for years that I just love, like Fresh. While I’ve successfully found a handful of organic, farm-to-face skincare brands that give amazing results, there are other brands I can’t let go of just yet.
Today I’m sharing a combination of products that has worked wonders on my skin over the last couple months. Keep in mind that just because something works well for me, doesn’t mean it will work the same for you. We all have different skin, so I always encourage you guys to try a variety of products and even switch things out one at a time so you can create the perfect routine for you! For reference, my skin is pretty normal. I used to have occasional breakouts but knock on wood, I haven’t experienced any lately. My skin rarely gets oily; if anything it can be on the drier side during the colder months. But let’s get to it! These are the products that currently make up my night time skincare routine!
I love a good cleansing oil and this one is by far the best I’ve used to date! It’s super smooth, smells great, and removes all of my makeup! It leaves my skin feeling clean and nourished. I apply it dry and use a warm wash cloth to take it off. Since getting my lash extensions, I’m super careful around my eyes because you’re technically not supposed to use oil based products with lash extensions, but I could never give this up! If I have eye makeup on that I need to remove, I use this eye makeup remover by Dermalogica because it’s water based/oil free.
When Fresh sent me this treatment to try, I fell in love after just a few uses! I apply this at night, after my skin is cleansed and dry, but you can also use it as part of your morning routine. Keep in mind, a little bit goes a long way; a couple drops covers my entire face & neck. Out of the eight proven benefits, I would say immediately refined skin texture and immediately improved luminosity are the two major benefits I’ve seen so far. After using it for the past four weeks or so, my skin looks more nourished overall!
An effective vitamin c serum is a must have skincare product in my book. I’ve tried a handful, and this one by One Love Organics is my favorite yet! The consistency is a bit more oily than other similar serums, so I prefer to use this at night as opposed to morning. I use one full pump for my whole face. I’ve been using it since May and it has kept my skin glowy and bright! One bottle has also lasted me almost five months, so it’s definitely worth the price.
Farmacy is a new to me brand that is a clean, farm-to-face skincare brand. I use this serum every few nights and one pump goes a long way. Over the past few weeks, I have noticed glowy, even toned skin every morning after using it! It might feel tingly when you apply it, but that’s just the ingredients working! The AHA exfoliates dead skin cells, promotes cell renewal, targets hyperpigmentation, and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s also packed with a ton of other good for the skin ingredients. I highly recommend this serum if you’ve been looking for one that is reasonable/mid-range in price!
Mask are one of my favorite ways to give my skin a little extra love. Overnight masks are great when you want the effects to be long lasting, as opposed to immediate. This firming overnight mask has a thick consistency and feels great on the skin. I lather it on at the end of my night time skincare routine every few nights. When I wake up in the morning, my skin is hydrated and looks so fresh and healthy. I recommend purchasing the travel size before splurging on the full size. I personally like to switch up my masks and try new ones often, so the travel sizes are perfect if you like to switch yours up as well!
