Hey everyone! It has been a while since I’ve wrote a blog post. Life has been a little crazy recently which is the reason why I’ve been so MIA on my blog. In a nutshell here are some of the things that have happened recently: I’ve been working on some new projects, we got a new car, I turned 28 in May, I got a new job (yes I’m still going to be doing blog posts and photography!), and we got a new puppy!!! He’s an english bulldog and we’re so in love. I can’t wait to share a post about him soon!
Anyways, let’s dive into this post!
One of the most frequent questions I get asked is about my favorite skincare products, and I thought I would share all about my current favorites. I’ve tried a lot of different skincare products, and by far these have been on repeat recently.
I’ve been a long time fan of Kiehl’s skincare products, and I wanted to share with you my current favorites from them. One of my favorite skincare collections by them is their Calendula line. Calendula is a flower that is native to the Mediterranean, and has amazing properties that help sooth and brighten skin (specifically oil skin, which is what I have). First, you start with the Deep Cleansing Foam Face Wash, then use the Herbal Extract toner, and then finish with the Serum Infused Water Cream (which is my current favorite by the collection). The water cream goes on your skin like a serum, and then soaks into your skin feeling like a water texture. It’s SO hydrating, calming, and makes your skin feel AMAZING. I can’t say enough things about these three products.
The next two products by Kiehl’s is the Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil serum, and their Creamy Eye Treatment with avocado. The Sativa Seed Oil is such an amazing product. I usually use it in the morning (2-3 drops), and then let my face soak in the oil for a while, and then I apply my normal makeup over. It’s hydrating and helps give your skin a healthy glow. The sativa seed helps calm stressed skin, visibly reduces redness, helps protect the skin barrier, and it’s lightweight. It also has green oregano oil in it to help relieve problem skin. With the oil, I love to use the Creamy Eye treatment. It’s hydrating, and is infused with Beta-Carotene, Shea Butter and Avocado Oil. This has become one of my favorite eye creams!
Glossier has some incredible skincare and makeup products, and they’re also a clean beauty line (which I love!). I recently got a gift sent in the mail from them with their top selling skincare products and I have to share them with you because they’re becoming apart of my daily skincare routine.
The first product is the Priming Moisturizer. This is one of my favorite moisturizers to put on in the morning before I apply my makeup, and it’s hydrating but feels extremely light on my skin. It leaves a clean, dewey finish which is ideal for makeup base. I can’t say enough things about this moisturizer! The second product is their Bubblewrap Lip and Eye Cream. The skin around your lips and eyes are the most thin and fragile skin on your face, and this product helps protect, plump, and hydrate your skin. I highly recommend this product!
I was recently introduced to this brand, which is a Scandinavian inspired CBD company based out of Portland. Grön, which is a Swedish word pronounced “grew-n” means “green”. They create products with CBD and cannabis oil including CBD chocolate, tinctures, CBD sauces, and they just released a CBD skincare line. I’ve only been using their products for a short period of time, but I can’t tell you how much I love them. I’m a firm believer in CBD and all the health benefits it can bring, and use it every day for a variety of reasons. So having it in my skincare routine just makes sense.
They have five new products in their skincare line, but I wanted to share with you my top two favorites. Renew: Time Reversing Face and Neck Cream, and Restore: Brighter Mornings Eye Cream. These two together work magic on your face and they smell incredible. The face and neck cream is soothing, hydrating, and helps brighten your skin. With the hemp extract it also has anti-inflammatory benefits. The eye cream is a game changer as well. I have puffy eyes due to my Graves’ disease, and this product has helped reduce some of the puffiness and inflammation. It helps brighten the eye area as well, and feels so good after you apply it!
