Over Christmas I was lucky enough to receive quite a few skin care products from family and friends as gifts! So today I wanted to give a little run down on exactly what they are and how I like them so far. Let's get going!! (Ps. I am SUPER proud of how these photos turned out! How do you guys like the marble background!??)
I was really excited to receive this from my parents because my skin has been so DRY this winter! This overnight mask is a moisture intensive product, for dry skin types, with the purpose of adding a load of moisture to your skin. It contains apricot and avocado oils, along with japanese sea weed! I've only used this mask once so far, but on first impression, I liked it a lot. It smells fresh and leaves my face feeling soft and refreshed in the morning. Plus, it's a pretty great value! A little goes a long way with this mask, and the package is pretty good sized, so it should last a long time.
If you have dry skin or seasonal dry patches, drop by Glossier's website NOW and order yourself this primer! I mean it. Over the last few weeks this primer has landed a solid spot in my daily makeup/skincare routine. After cleansing my skin (with my Glossier milk jelly cleanser) I pop on some of my holy grail First Aid Beauty cream, and finish by coating my entire face with this baby. I gotta be honest, I don't notice too much of a difference in the longevity of my makeup with this primer. But, for my purposes, with the way my skin has been, I don't care much. Mac Fix + holds my makeup in place on it's own and this lovely gem keeps my skin feeling soft and hydrated for hours!
As I mentioned in the above paragraph, and have mentioned about 50 billion times throughout the last year, the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream is my HOLY GRAIL heavy duty moisturizer! So obviously, when I saw the cute little holiday set this cream came in, I knew I had to have it! The set came with two, 2 oz containers of the magic cream I love so dear. This one is same formula as the classic, scentless cream, but with a soft vanilla scent. It's perfect for the dry spots on my legs and arms and keeps me smelling sweet all day!
This gift was one I was most excited for this year. I've been wanting to invest in an electronic cleanser for a while now. The Foreo really intrigued me because of it's silicon based bristles, which make it more sanitary and easy to clean. So far I've been really impressed with it! I feel like it gives me a much deeper clean, especially in the areas I typically have lots of blackheads. I chose to go for the mini version for a couple reasons, A.) it's cheaper and B.) I felt like the smaller version would allow me to navigate my face a littttle better. Needless to say, I'm quite satisfied with my choice! Let me know in the comments if you guys would like to see a full skin care routine post featuring this!
I got this giant cream from my great uncle on Christmas eve, he always finds the most unique and personalized gifts! I'd never heard of this brand before, but it really seems like something special. All of Honeyskin's products are natural, gluten free, paraban free and animal "friendly". This specific cream claims to be the ultimate cream for dryness, even as severe as eczema, rosacea or psoriasis. I've only gotten the chance to use this a few times, but so far I'm impressed! The formula is a thicker consistency than many moisturizers, you can really feel it absorbing into the skin. It also has a soft, natural scent, mostly of honey!
