My Current Skincare Routine & Fav Products

Happy day my loves!

I wanted to share my current nighttime skincare routine along with my favorite products as of late.  I would classify my skin as dry, I used to as a child, and occasionally now, still get eczema.  Therefore, moisturizing is a key priority for me.  Progress pictures for my eye cream are at the bottom!
**Pro Tip: I recently learned a tip from a model I follow that says you should apply your facial products according to consistency, so lightest to thickest! 

My typical routine goes like so...

  •  I take my make-up off in the evening with Garnier Micellar Water, I've used this stuff that past 3 years and I would never change it unless someone gave me something better.
  • I wash my face with Neutrogena pink grapefruit cleanser  I like that it has a little salicylic acid to help with the occasional break out.
  •  I then apply Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate.  Just a few drops goes a long way. 
  • I apply Olenhenriksen eye cream, which I have progress photos for you of proof I think it works!
  • Lastly I apply my Kiehls moisturizer, scent free and feels fab.

In addition to these products, I use Dr. Brandts exfoliating cream 1-2 times per week, Glam Glo super mud mask (once a month), Sephora Sheet masks (once or twice a month) , the rose one and avocado one are my favs!  I use those on a treat yourself kind of day. I also included another moisturizer I use sometimes, First Aid Beauty's.  Some of these products are a little expensive but I only buy them when they have their Christmas sale, & I get a discount.  Which means they last for a whole year yall!  So totally worth it in my opinion.

Here are my progress pictures from my eye cream!  It claims to be "A brightening, vitamin C-rich eye crème that targets signs of aging, reducing the look of dark circles while improving concealer application and wear—inspired by makeup artist secret, banana powder. " --Took this from Sephora's website.
I took these first thing in the morning before work, so around 6:30 am to get a true before and after picture.  If I scare you, my sincerest apologies 😂  These pictures span a month's time period.
