Winter Skincare Routine
Hi babes!! I’m so excited to share my winter skincare routine today! If you’re a long time reader, you know that beauty posts are my favorite to write! If you’re new here, welcome! I’m so glad you stopped by! As you read through, please keep in mind that even though these products work great for my skin, they might not work for yours. Everyone’s skin is different! For reference, I (fortunately) have very normal skin with occasional breakouts. Let’s jump in!
CLEANSER: FRESH SOY FACE CLEANSER
MOISTURIZER: FRESH LOTUS YOUTH PRESERVE FACE CREAM
I’ve been switching back and forth between the Fresh Lotus face cream and the Fresh Rose face cream. Both are light weight and absorb nicely into the skin. The lotus face cream is a great basic face cream that would be good for all skin types. The rose face cream is great for hydration; if you skin is feeling extra dry, I would try it out! They are both perfect for under makeup which is why I love using them in the morning!
NIGHT TIME ROUTINE
REMOVE MAKEUP / PRECLEANSE: FARMACY GREEN CLEAN
I had been dying to try the Farmacy Green Clean, so when Sephora had their VIB sale, I ordered it right away. Let me tell you, I was not disappointed!! The scent is so fresh and it literally melts away your makeup so easily! It’s also a plus that it has clean ingredients 🙌🏻 I will definitely repurchase this!
CLEANSER: FRESH SOY FACE CLEANSER
Again, faveee cleanser ever! Five stars all around!
When Fresh sent me their kombucha treatment I was beyond excited. Kombucha is trending in the world of wellness and the fact that you can incorporate it into your skincare routine is super cool. I’ve been using this for MONTHS and it truly has made such a difference in my skin! It definitely helps with tone and firmness, as well as overall glow. You can read about all of the benefits here. I suggest getting the large bottle because a little bit goes a long way - I haven't even made a dent in my bottle yet!!
If you’ve been a long time follower, you will know that a vitamin C serum is a must in my book! Every time I run out of whatever I’m currently using, I purchase a new brand because I truly want to find the best one on the market. I also feel like vitamin C serums can plateau after a while so switching it up every once in a while isn’t a bad thing.
So, I had previously been using One Love Organics Vitamin C serum and it was amazing - I highly recommend it if you’re conscious of ingredients (full review here). When I ran out, I picked up this one by Sunday Riley. Sunday Riley is a brand that everyone raves about, so I figured I would give it a try. I got it right around Christmas time and my first impression is that it is more than worth the money (it is on the expensive side). I use one pump every night and can see an immediate difference! I also wake up every morning with glowing skin! We’ll just have to see how it lasts long term!
MOISTURIZER: FRESH LOTUS YOUTH PRESERVE DREAM NIGHT CREAM
The Lotus Dream Night Cream is one of Fresh’s newest products, and their first ever face cream specifically formulated for night time! I am so fortunate to be on their PR list because they truly have been a forever favorite skin care brand of mine! I’ve been using this night cream for a couple weeks now and am certainly impressed. It’s soft, lightweight, absorbs nicely and keeps my skin feeling hydrated. Again, we will see how it lasts long term, but I have high hopes for it based on my first impression!
EXFOLIATOR: GLO SKIN BEAUTY DAILY POLISHING CLEANSER
This exfoliating cleanser by Glo Skin Beauty is amazing! I’ve been using it since summer time and it’s great for helping to clear up breakouts. If I have a break out, I use it every night until it’s cleared up. If my skin is normal, I use it about once or twice per week to sloth off dead skin cells. What I like most is that it’s a powder. You only need a little bit in your hands, then mix it with water and rub in circles on your skin. It works like a charm!
Summer Fridays is everywhere right now. Everyone is talking about it and I see it on social media nonstop. Naturally, I had to try their Jet Lag masque. I love a good, hydrating mask, and this one did not disappoint! You can lather it on and rinse after 10-15 minutes for immediately supple skin, or you can apply a thin layer overnight and wake up with a hydrated glow. I prefer to leave it on overnight, and I use it 2-3 times a week. You can also apply a thin layer in the morning after cleansing and wear it as a makeup base! It’s definitely a mask that I will repurchase!
Long story short, this lip sleeping mask works wonders!!! This is another product that I’ve seen so many people raving about, and rightfully so. I have not had dry or chapped lips yet this winter! I put this on every night and it truly works. I don’t even need chapstick or lip balm during the day because of this product. I will never turn back! It’s definitely one of my favorites out of this entire routine. Also, a little bit goes a long way. I’ve been using it for about a month and feel like it’s still completely full! #worthit
That’s all for today friends! I would love to hear what products you’re loving this winter! Leave a comment with any recommendations!
