Hello, beauties! It’s time to talk about beauty products because I would like to share with you the ones that I’m currently using, giving my honest opinion about each one. Girls, your age doesn’t matter, instead, taking care of the wrapping of your body, aka your skin, is essential to look and feel your best. So pamper yourself with good products and when I say good, they don’t need to be the most expensive ones, but you need to look for products to become part of the best skincare routine for you, improving the quality and texture of it. In the end, every skin conditions and necessities are different for everyone.
I am always on the loop to try good and new products that enhance woman’s natural beauty. So please, take a look at the products that complement my daily beauty regime:
A deep clean face wash is super important to get rid of all the impurities and make up that can clog the pores. The facial cleansing routine I follow starts with Olehenriksen foaming cleanser .
I like this foaming cleanser because besides its delicious smell, fresh and energetic, this leaves the skin super smooth and free of any make up residues. It lasts longer because one pump is enough to achieve a deep clean face wash. I love the fact that it’s a vegan product, rich in antioxidants.
Taking care of this delicate area around the eyes is very important because puffiness and dark circles give us a tired and older appearance. I have been using this product: Philosophy Ultimate Miracle Worker Fix for Eyes. It’s a creamy texture, that absorbs quickly. Its main ingredients are bi-retinoid, soy peptide extracts, and hyaluronic acid, all of them are powerful peptides, anti-oxidants, well known to fight against signs of aging.
To be honest, I started taking care of my skin since I was 18 years old. I remember using my savings to buy creams and beauty products, and the eye area was an essential part of my daily routine. I always heard that the earlier you started taking care of this area, using the appropriate products to your age, you’d start to see the famous crow’s-feet until an older age. Maintaining this area nourished and hydrated is essential to avoid fine lines and wrinkles.
A facial serum is important because it’s a more concentrated formula, normally made of peptides or antioxidants that penetrate deeply into your skin. So if you are not using one yet, you should consider applying it morning and night before your day or night cream. The one I’m currently using is the Clarins Double Serum. I have used different serums from different brands, but since I discovered this one, I’m sticking with it as a part of my skincare regime.
As I mentioned, I use this product twice a day on my face, neck, and chest, along with a gentle massage in order to stimulate skin cells, getting a better absorption. I love the texture and it smells delicious, the sensation when applying is great.
I’m currently using Charlotte’s Magic Cream from Charlotte Tilbury, this cream became super popular between celebrities and models, with great reviews and comments. So I really wanted to try it and I started to use it about a month ago. It’s made with a hyaluronic acid booster and floral extracts along with other ingredients such as vitamin E, C and A that help to lift and improve the quality and texture of the skin. I’m happy with the first results because, especially during the winter, your skin always needs better and deeper hydration. It’s fast absorbing and smells good. It’s kind of pricey ($100) but I think that it’s a good investment, because it’s a quality product that will bring good results.
It’s highly recommended that when using this cream, apply by giving yourself a massage that includes circular motions all over your face to stimulate collagen and elasticity, tapping your face for circulation and to achieve a better and deeper penetration of its ingredients into your face, neck and decollate. For the time that I have been using this product I can say that it definitely gives my skin a great glow and I’m feeling my skin truly nourished and soft, which I know is great to delay the appearance of wrinkles because dry skin tends to wrinkle faster than hydrated skin. Of course, for better and longer-lasting results, you have to use this and all beauty products for a considerable period of time. So if you are looking for a good and powerful cream to fight against signs of aging this is a good option to try.
I use SPF 50+ everyday, every time I leave the house, even on cloudy days. I really like this Lancôme Bienfait UV SPF 50 because it’s a light-weight and oil-free product that absorbs super fast into the skin without leaving it shiny or with an oily sensation. So I apply it every day over my moisturizer, under makeup, or alone. It’s recommended for all skin types, even the most sensitives.
For the past three months I’ve been using a luxurious and replenishing night cream from Agora Cosmetics, I use it every night after washing and applying toner on my face. I normally use the Clarins serum that I previously shared, followed by my night cream. For better absorption or penetration into myskin, I apply small amounts in circular motions all over my face, neck, and decollate. This product contains quality ingredients, good smells, and it feels great when applying. It has a light, creamy texture. If you want to learn more or purchase this product, I made a full review on it. You can check it out here.
The only issue about this product is that it is quite expensive. If you check the review on it you have to find out about its quality but to be honest, it doesn’t always justify the high price tag. I know it’s a lot of money for just one cream especially for the fact that it’s a small amount for the price you’re paying, and also because, we normally need to buy so many products to start a complete skincare routine. So I’ve linked below some other night creams that I have tried in the past and I love their results. They are excellent and less expensive than the one I’m currently using, that is still really great.
I love using masks 3 times a week. Monday and Wednesday I use a peel on a regular basis after my deep clean face wash and before my night cream . The Goldfaden MD peel all-natural, is perfect for all skin types and it’s free of alcohol so it doesn’t cause any irritation. It says that you should apply it for 1-3 minutes over your face and neck, depending on tolerance. However, I leave it on for 5-10 minutes and then rinse.
The other mask that I love is the Charlotte Tilbury – Goddess Skin Clay Mask. This is a nourishing mask that helps tighten pores, moisturizing your skin, and clearing imperfections. I use it once a week, on the weekends.
I also love to make my own masks once in a while with natural products that I normally have at home. If you want to see some of my 3 top favorite and natural masks and how to prepare them, click here.
