My skin care routine lately

January 16, 2015

Ever since I was very young, I took my skin care seriously. My first cleanser was from Neutrogena. I simply CAN’T go to bed without washing my face (yuck!). When I was about 16, was when I started using sunscreen (almost) everyday. Now, I won’t go outside even on a cloudy day, without applying sunscreen – it is soooo important! Your skin care evolves, as it should throughout the years. And as you age you start adding more products to your routine. Lately, I’ve added a few new blog-worthy products to my skin care regimen that I would like to share with you!

Morning Skin Care Routine

{ L-R and in order of application: }

AM:  Cleanser | Face Pads | Vitamin C Serum | Hydrating Treatment | Argan Oil Moisturizer | Eye Roller | Eye Remedy | SPF 50 CC Cream 

Night Skin Care Routine

{ L-R and in order of application: }

PM:  Cleanser | Face Pads | Vitamin C Serum | Hyalo Plasma| Hydrating Treatment | Argan Oil Moisturizer | Eye Roller | Overnight mask


Cleanser(s):  I use both in rotation, depending on my skins needs. If my skin is behaving like a teenager, then I use the acne wash. Any other day it’s the FAB cleanser. It really is ‘FAB!’

Treatment(s):  I’ve been using This pure vitamin C serum for 2 weeks. I have tried many vitamin C products, and this one is truly exceptional. Since adding it to my routine, I’ve noticed my skin feels tighter + looks brighter. I have noticed it has helped diminish some dark spots I’ve had on my cheek.

The pure argan ‘Milk‘ hydrating treatment, is just my addiction. In fact, any argan oil products are great! When I first started using this product last year, my skin just changed. I have noticed a boost in the hydration of my skin, and how just overall, healthy + ‘plump’ it looks. I will NEVER stop using this!

hyalo plasma, has 3 forms of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA basically keeps your skin young + healthy (read more about HA here). This product totally amp’s up your skin care regimen. I noticed my skin looked ‘renewed’ when I started using it. And now, it makes my skin look smoother and more luminous. With continued use, it has great benefits against aging.

Moisturizer(s):  Argan oil is my go-to moisturizer. Don’t freak out because it’s an oil. If you already have oily or problematic skin, this product it for you too! With only 2 drops morning and night (you can mix it into you ‘Milk’ treatment too), you will notice your skin change. You will have pretty skin!

This CC cream, is my favorite. I’ve talked about this product many times. It is a multitasking beauty product! It’s your protector, your full-coverage color-correcting cream and anti-aging day serum. I love it!

Facial Pads

Facial pad(s): I also use these in rotation. Most everyday I use the FAB Pads. And about once a week I use the complexion correction pads, just to keep breakouts away.

Eye Treatment

Eye treatment(s):  I LOVE these eye treatments equally! I’m a busy mom who’s working on getting some more sleep. My lack of a full nights sleep = dark + puffy eyes. These products really have helped to de-puff, brighten and hydrate my eye area. Making me look rested + fresh. The results are pretty immediate. They both have a metal applicator which instantly feels cool on contact, helping the under eye area appear tighter. And with continued use, these products will help with fine lines and wrinkles as well. Click here + here for these eye products.


Weekend Skin Care

Face mask(s):  This overnight mask is genius! You must add this to your skin care routine, you’ll be so happy you did! Go to sleep with it on and when you wake up…voila- beautiful, hydrated, glowing skin!

The purifying mask is…well, for purifying. It’s a peel off mask – which isn’t my favorite type of mask, but this one gets the job done.

This GlamGlow Supermud, is absolutely, hands-down my favorite face mask (so far). I mean, after just a 15-20 minute treatment your skin is literally like new! My face is so soft and clean, and pores are cleared and minimized. My skin looks radiant afterward! Work this product in to your Sunday night regimen.


What are some of your favorite products? I would love to hear them!

All of these products have more than one benefit for our skin. These help us to Protect, Conceal, Repair and Prime our skin for the day ahead.

It’s light-weight, helps to battle the signs of aging, protects your skin from harmful UV damage and it readies your skin for the rest of your long day.
Here’s the description mentioned on the Supergoop! website:

Peter Thomas Roth CC Cream is an anti-aging treatment, sunscreen, complexion corrector, moisturizer AND tint all in one. I personally own and love this CC cream. I just rub this on in the morning, and usually, on my regular day it’s all I need. Because of the tint in this product it helps to “correct” your complexion. I love knowing that in ONE product I have all I need for the day! What makes this CC cream different?
It has Arbutin and Camu Camu.
Camu Camu, is an Amazonian super fruit that has 30 TIMES MORE vitamin C than an orange. Vitamin C is essential for your skin. It helps improve collagen production in order to create more beautiful vibrant, firmer skin. It also helps to protect you from further skin damage. Arbutin helps to even out your skin tone- it has skin lightening properties. The wonderful tint corrects your complexion right away. Hiding some imperfections so you can just use this if you like, or add your foundation/powder atop. Finally, the SPF helps fight against future damage and keeps your skin looking beautiful!
Available at Sephora, QVC.com and http://www.peterthomasroth.com
Now that summer is approaching, take care of your skin + try some of these products out!

Sunday Night Beauty

April 22, 2012

For me, Sunday is the day I take the time out for some pampering at home! It’s the end of the week, and a great way to start the new week off… so why not get those face scrubs and masks out!
These are a few of my favorite things…”

The Clarisonic: Using the Clarisonic is the fist step to every skin care regimen I have. The Clarisonic is a sonic face & body cleansing brush. Once you clean your skin with sonic technology, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it! Cleaning your skin with just your hands or a washcloth is OLD NEWS! This cleansing brush deep cleans your pores, clears break-outs faster, and leaves your skin glowing and ooh-so soft. I LOVE IT! I got mine on QVC.com. And best of all, if you buy it on QVC, you can get it cheaper than retail price! And they generally offer an “easy-pay” option. Currently, the featured price listed on QVC is – $216.48, with an easy pay offer of 3 installments of $72.16 a month (not including S&H). Otherwise, you may choose to buy yours straight from the Clarisonic website at, http://www.clarisonic.com/, or you can also find it at the Nordstrom department stores.

This is what mine looks like ↓

After I cleanse my face, I use a good face scrub. I use a two-step resurfacing “peel” called, The Microdelivery Peel by, Philosophy. The kit includes the vitamin C/peptide crystals and the lactic/salicylic acid activating gel. The crystals help to resurface and rejuvenate the skin, at the same time infusing the skin with vitamin C and peptides, which help with skin tone and reducing fine lines. The kit is gentle enough to use up to 2 times a week. You can buy this on Philosophy‘s website, at Nordstrom department stores, and on QVC.com.
The two-step skin care kit –
After the peel, I use a mask. I have several different masks to choose from. But my decision is based on my skin’s need. If I feel like I need a bit more radiance/oxygen to my skin then I go for, the Peter Thomas Roth Radiance Oxygenating Masque. This guy is pricey but is packed with benefits! This mask is for those of us who need more brighter, clearer and hydrated skin. This 3.4 fl oz. is priced at $50.00, but lasts a LONG time because you only use it 1-2 times per week. Again, you can buy this on the Peter Thomas Roth website, and Nordstrom department stores.
Lastly, If my skin is feeling congested I will use a mask by Kiehl’s called, Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque. This is great to use if you need to minimize and unclog your pores. This product is made with Amazonian white clay, which acts like a magnet to draw out all the dirt and yucky stuff that clogs the skin. This mask is $23.00, and you can buy it at Kiehl’s, Amazon.com ( I found it for $21.85), and Nordstrom department stores.
So I hope you reserve a day for beauty…you DESERVE to put your best face forward, and pamper yourself!!
Tell me what products work for you!
