I have a pretty simple skin care routine but I have upped my game in the last couple of years. I’m no spring chicken and I’ve spent a lot of my life in the sun so it’s about that time, if not past time that I get serious about skin care and so that’s what I’ve done.
I’m loving my new skin care routine and I’m excited to share it with you. My skin is feeling glowy and bright and tan and calm and after trying a variety of products from variety of price ranges, I have landed on a routine that I am happy with and even though I am continuously trying new things because I love to try new things, these are my go to products and I am sharing when and how I use them.
I am a big routine person. Each morning, I wake up and I go straight downstairs and make my coffee. When I return upstairs, I brush my teeth and wash my face with my Acure Brightening Cleansing Gel and use my PMD Clean Pro Rose Quartz and then I use my Clinique Smart Clinical MD Multi Dimensional Age Transformer Duo.
Before we talk about my daytime moisturizer, let’s chat about Acure and my PMD cleaning tool. I discovered the Acure brand on our honeymoon. At our resort in Kauai, had their facial scrub as part of our toiletry kit lineup and I was obsessed.
I thought, I will never be able to find this and I just kept my little travel sized one from that resort for special occassions but when I started using Grove Collaborative, I discovered that they had Acure products and that they were really affordable. Now, I use the Brightening Cleansing Gel almost every day and also use the Acure Brightening Facial Scrub two to three times a week for a really deep, soothing scrub.
I highly recommend Grove Collaborative and an obsessed with it. I receive monthly sipments of amazing clean and favorite products including my Acure lineup and receive free shipping with each shipment, amazing customer service and great prices. If you haven’t checked Grove out, I recommend doing so and getting started today! Click HERE!*
As for the my PMD Clean Pro Rose Quartz , this was a treat to myself and something I really put a lot of time and research into before getting my hands on it. I wanted something that could really get my cleanser and my creams into my skin while buffing at the same time and the PMD Clean Pro Rose Quartz had amazing reviews.
This product has 4 different speeds; two geared more towards cleanser and two geared more towards your creams and serums. It is safe to use in the shower and just leaves the skin feeling fresh, clean, buffed and amazing. I love it.
The Clinique Smart Clinical MD Multi Dimensional Age Transformer Duo is awesome and a little goes a long way. I use just a small amount on each cheek and then on my forehead and that smoothes out across my entire face. I will say that this is a thicker formula, so depending on your preference it may not be for you. I actually don’t like thick formulas for creams and lotions used on the face but that’s why I use so little of it. What I like is how it makes my skin feel and the luminosity and plumping that it provides for my face.
Next, I go in with my facial tanner which actually isn’t a facial tanner at all. I use the L’oreal Sublime Bronze on my face and I have used this product for over four years. This is a lightweight, product that I can use a small dime sized amount (if that) and that covers my face and gives me an amazing glow.
I wear an SPF 50 on my face outside so even though I spend a lot of time outside, my face tends to be much paler than the rest of my body. Even when I spray tan, because I cleanse my face twice a day and exfoliate frequently, the spray tan wears off much faster on my face.
This product is not specified for the face and if you have sensitive skin, you might want to try on a small patch first before diving in to the whole face to see if your skin reacts. I love it. It’s perfect, I love the scent, I love the glow, I love the formula. Like I said, I have been using this for years every single day and it’s perfect for me and my needs.
Next up, my eyelash serum. I use this serum twice a day and every two months I take a two week break from it because it helps them to be reinvigorated and continue to grow and thicken. I have tried a number of serums, and I’ve gotten lash extensions and this is just the best product for me. It makes my lashes thick and long and amazing and I can still wear mascara and I don’t have to worry about them thinning out or worry about getting them re-filled like with extensions.
I have talked about this serum a number of times and I am still using it. 10/10 highly recommend the Pronexa Hairgenics Lavish Lash. I purchase mine on Amazon.
Last up, before I apply my makeup, I go in with the Glow Recipe Watermelon Super Fine Mist. This just makes me happy. I love that this product smells like a fresh, juicy watermelon. The mist on this is beyond perfection. It doesn’t jump on to your skin in a puddle like so many sprays do and it just covers your face with a light, misty, juicy glow. It starts my day off right and I love to take in the scent while it gently soaks into my skin for a minute prior to putting on my primer and other products.
Stay tuned for part two where I will cover my nighttime skin care routine. I will also be continuing this series with my favorite makeup products that I am loving right now as well as some other beauty favorites that I just can’t live without.
Thank you for stopping by and for the love of the mouse, never forget, that it all started with a mouse.
