Skin Regimen

I get questions periodically about my skincare regimen. I wrote a post on it quite a while back on the old blog, but I guess it's about time I update you all on what I'm using these days. 

First, I want to start off by saying that when it comes to skincare, you have to try different things to figure out what works.  I'd decided a little while back that I was ready to "step it up" on the skincare by letting go of the drugstore brands and give some of the pricier department store brands a try.  I wanted to see if "what you get is what you pay for" applied to skincare as well.  Let me give you a tip when it comes to trying out different department store brand skincare the gift sets!  The major brands like EstΓ©e Lauder, Kiehls, Lancome, Clinique, etc. offer gift sets that gets you a handful of products at a fraction of the cost, and it's more than enough product for you to try and figure out if it works for you.  I did this with a few brands and I think I've found the skincare line that works best for me.

I am currently using Kiehl's products.  I bought the starter kit a couple months ago, and I'm hooked.  It has mama's skin feeling like butter and looking least to me it does.  It comes with a cleanser, moisturizer, eye cream, wrinkle reducing cream and a skin serum.  I am in love with all of these items.  Obvi, I use the cleanser and moisturizer daily.  I use the skin serum at night along with the eye cream, and then I apply the wrinkle reducer on certain spots on my face, namely where my frown lines would be (don't have them yet!) and the smile lines.

I've also added a couple other Kiehl's products to my line-up as well.  I've started using the Ultra Facial Moisturizer w/Sunscreen now that summer weather is basically here, and I just recently bought the Nature-Powered Masque set.  I haven't tried them yet, but I will be sure to give my opinion on them via Instagram or IG Stories.



Speaking of masks, I do use facial masks on occasion when I can overcome my laziness.  I'm a big fan of sheet masks and have been using the TONYMOLY masks after grabbing a bunch of them up one day while in Urban Outfitters (5 for $10, helloooo). I've also bought some sheet masks from TJ Maxx as well.  By the way, have you checked out TJ Maxx's skincare/beauty section?? So many great finds!  But that's a whole other post for another day...



So there you have it.  My current skincare routine in a nutshell. Hope this helps!
