>I like to consider myself a pretty open person with certain parts of my life. I normally never reveal too much but there are the guilty times where my mouth can be the latest edition of the Times. I’ve been feeling a tad bit stuck lately with regards to the makeup I use, my toiletries, the accessories I collect and the clothing I wear, etc. So I’ve decided to make a few changes, and document them.
MY FACE | For the longest time I kept purchasing my face washes and lotions during my grocery shopping because it was the most convenient time for me. Because of this I would always go straight for Clean and Clear or Nivea. Why? I have no idea…it could be because I know the brand? It’s easy? WRONG! I’m LAZY. After a long trip to Sephora and consultation from their in store skin specialist I’ve found my new love. Ole Henriksen provides me with the best results for my combination skin – I’ve been using samples for the past week and have noticed results after the first 2 days, my skin is smooth and toned with minimal pores and blemishes.
Step 1: Wash face with the “on the go cleanser” $21
Step 2: Tone face with “pick me up tonic” $21
Step 3: Moisterize skin with “truth revelead super creme with SPF 15” $46
MY EYES| I work 40 hours a week, don’t sleep nearly as much as I should and find it a chore to drink water (I’m working on it!!! 8 glasses) so with more sleep and more water and less stress I’ve introduced myself to Mary Kay Timewise Reviatalizing Eye Serum $35. So far I have not noticed a difference and it’s been 2 weeks of usage…I’ll come back to this one.
MY BODY | I find that my skin can get quite dry from time to time so it’s best to keep it constantly moisterized. I’ve been rubbing Johnson and Johnson’s Baby Oil all over my skin immediately after showers and using Vaseline lotion with coco butter before bed.
Shower time is relaxation time and its also time to scrub down! I’ve been introduced to Consonant Body’s Organic Soap with goats milk and hemp $12. My skin feel instantly reguvinated and I dont feel like I’ve just packed on the chemicals.
To add a smell-good to my body after the scrub down I use Olay Body scrub with ribbons and Fruits and Passion Body wash with Vanilla and Pineapple.
MY FEET | Working 9 hour days 5 days IN HEELS can really take it’s toll on ones feet. I’m using Fruits and Passion Exfoliating Paste $15 and Deoderizing Mist $15. The exfoliating paste is basically a spa treatment on your feet and believe me they’ll be happy. It feels like a million mini stones acting together to clean your feet and remove away dead skin. The mist is perfect for keeping your feet hydrated and odor free.
