My Current Daily Skincare Routine

The Products I Love.

Skincare is so important. It is something that I have always had in the back of my mind but never really focused too much attention on it. I have always used face wash, toner, and moisturizer. I tried to always remember to use sunblock if it was convenient. I am so glad that I did at least that. Now that I am a little older, I do feel I am more in tune with what my skin needs and I go the extra mile to keep my skin soft, plump and looking young.

I feel like the skincare industry has blown up. Everyone is making claims about fountain of youth products and since we all are a lot more health-conscious we are looking for products that are all-natural, paraben-free and not tested on animals. It’s not hard to find products that fit our needs but how in the heck do you choose with so many options?

I try to keep skincare at a forefront in my daily routine. The first thing I do is I take collagen every day. It is something easy I can do to feed my skin and it has so many other benefits as well. The collagen I take is Vital Proteins. I read somewhere that this is the one Jennifer Aniston uses and I figured if it is good enough for Jen, I will give it a go. I put it in my coffee every day and since it is unflavored and dissolves quickly I hardly notice it. I don’t know if Jen Aniston really uses this one, but I love it! I also stopped wearing makeup so much. I am home now so that is easy. Since I take way better care of my skin, I am a lot more comfortable bare faced than I ever was and it feels a million times better getting complimented on my skin than my makeup ever did! I wash my face every day, still use toner, and I use serums under my moisturizer. The face wash system I currently use is Jordan Essentials’ basic system. It’s a foaming face wash, a toner mist, and a red wine moisturizer. I really feel like it cleans my face so well, even when I wear makeup. The moisturizer is thick but it soaks into my skin and doesn’t feel heavy or greasy. It is infused with resveratrol, shea butter, and vitamin e. It has been a game-changer for me, especially in the colder, dryer places we have been lately.

I have been using Glossier Super Bounce and Super Glow serums together daily under my moisturizer. The Super Bounce has hyaluronic acid and b5 serum to ease and soften tight rough skin. The Super Glow has vitamin c and magnesium serum to brighten and energize dull tired skin. I use them together to help even out my skin tone. I have freckles and some larger spots in my complexion which is why I never felt comfortable bare-faced but these two serums have helped so much. Now, they don’t promise to help reduce discoloration but I heard a lot about them and read a lot of reviews that claimed this, so I tried them out. I’m not completely spotless, but the difference is huge to me.

I also use a night cream most of the time, the Jordan Essentials moisturizer I mentioned above is thick and creamy enough to use as a night cream but I switch it up sometimes with Derma-E Vitamin C Intense Night Cream. This cream is infused with probiotics and rooibos. I like the scent and I love how it makes my skin feel completely moisturized and supple.

These are the products I use in my daily skincare routine. There are a lot of products with huge claims but keep in mind that you are human and you are beautiful. Take care of your skin and embrace the aging process because you can do everything right by your skin and you’re still going to age. Look for products that are natural and make your skin feel good. Learn to love your skin, the wrinkles, the dimples, and even the freckles!

Mascara Goals

Mascara Goals

My lashes are nothing spectacular, they are average I’d say. I’m happy with them, but finding mascara that worked for me has always been kind of a pain. After I had my sons my eyes became super sensitive and I had to change my whole eye makeup routine! I couldn’t wear certain mascaras because they would make my eyes water uncontrollably and other mascaras I tried smudged like crazy!

I tried a few different mascaras and it was always the same. Luckily I subscribed to Ipsy and had sample mascaras to try! It was always the same. Smudged or watery eyes. I was losing hope. Then, believe it or not, I found one I love! I probably would never have tried it had my mom not purchased it for me, thanks mom!

The mascara I found that doesn’t irritate my eyes, doesn’t smudge, and on top of that gives me full, long lashes is,  Almay One Coat Thickening Mascara. I definetly recommend this mascara if you are having any issues like I was. Even if you’re not, it’s still better than many of the other mascaras I tried at lengthening and making my lashes look full and stay curled!

What are some of your favorite mascaras?

Fashionova Review

Fashionova Review

img_7452I don’t have a lot of room in my closet and I am ready for spring!  I decided to clean out some pieces I haven’t worn in a while and fill them with something new. I follow Fashionnova on Instagram and they have super cute clothes. Some of them are a little revealing for me but they have a large selection of items that aren’t as well.  I don’t dress up much since I am a homeschooling mom with two young boys, so I was a little reluctant to order.

I ended up ordering four tops, a pair of jeans, and a bralette. They were having a sale so I took advantage and also made the free shipping quota. I am so impressed with their shipping time, I ordered on Saturday and received it Monday! It was so awesome that I didn’t have to wait so long to receive my order! The clothing is good quality and fit well. I am super happy with my experience ordering from Fashionnova and will do so again in the future!
