Fall & Winter Skincare Routine Video

16 Nov

Hello lovelies!

I just uploaded a new video about my fall and winter skincare routine and I wanted to make sure you all knew about it. I think it’s just so important to change up my skincare routine with the seasons because the weather effects my skin so much. In the video you’ll see all the products I use to keep my dry, sensitive skin happy during these cold months. I hope you all enjoy this video – I certainly enjoyed filming it! As always if you like the video please give it a thumbs up and subscribe to my channel over on youtube.

I thank you all so much for watching and I hope you have an amazing weekend!

The Thanksgiving influx of family begins for me this weekend and I am so excited to see my family who don’t live near me. What are you getting up to this weekend?

Lush Celestial Moisturizer

30 Oct

Today, I thought I would fill you all in on a favorite part of my skincare routine. Moisturizers are the hardest thing for me to find. I have very sensitive, very dry skin and a lot of the time I react badly to moisturizers and end up looking like a pimply lobster (even with the moisturizers targeted towards my skin type). Several months ago, I had given up on yet another moisturizer I was trying out when I decided to check out what Lush had to offer. Now I had never tried any of Lush’s skincare, only their bath products, but I thought it was worth a shot. I explained my skincare woes to the lovely lady in the shop and she suggested I try this celestial moisturizer. I didn’t really have high hopes for it (not sure why), but after the first few uses I began to realize just how great of a product it is. First off, it smells lovely – like vanilla and almonds. It hydrates my skin without making me oily and it does not create any redness at all. In fact, I think it has helped to calm some of the redness in my skin. It doesn’t break me out at all and it has even helped to calm some of my eczema patches that never seem to go away.  It is a very heavy moisturizer, which I do need, but it’s a little much under makeup so I primarily use this at night. For a day moisturizer I tend to use the Origins Vitazing, but if I am having a particularly dry day I will use this instead. Basically, this moisturizer has been a god-send. I’ve never used anything that works this well for me and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone with similar skin issues. Since purchasing this moisturizer I have tried several other skincare products from Lush and I have been very pleased with them as well, making Lush my new go-to store for skincare!

Tell me, have you ever tried any of Lush’s skincare? What’s your favorite product from Lush?

September Favorites

28 Sep

Somehow another month has come to an end. It may just be me, but I feel like we are moving at light speed towards Christmas! Now, that’s not exactly an unwelcome thing since by Christmas I will have finished my last semester of schoolwork before student teaching and will be one step closer to becoming a real adult with a grown up job. By Christmas, I will have served as a bridesmaid in my lovely cousin’s wedding and had a birthday (I’ll be 25 – yikes). Though all these things are wonderful, they just seem to be approaching so quickly!

Anyway, all of this is to say that since another month has passed us by it’s time for some monthly favorites! Check out my new video to see what I’ve been loving this month and be sure to watch until the very end for some silly moments between me and my dog Trudy.

I hope you have all had a great month and can we all just put some vibes out there for a slower month in October? That would be great!

xoxo
