More recently, I’ve really been into skincare. I’m finally wearing face oil, which has been an absolute game changer for me and I’m wearing face creams and lotions that are really hydrating my skin. Honestly, I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to realize the difference in skin care products. I’ve always been the bare minimum kind of girl. I didn’t like to spend money on what I thought was unnecessary products. It’s been about 3-4 months now that I’ve really invested in my skin and I can see a major difference. My skin is soft, clear, and looks fresh. It’s also changed how my makeup goes on – smooth and almost airbrushed looking rather than dry and flaky. I recently got some new products and in and I’m sharing details below.
Le Labo Face Lotion – This stuff is extremely hydrating. It’s thick, but doesn’t feel greasy or oily, which is always big for me. A little goes a long way here. I will use this at night and in the morning as a foundation for my makeup. Bonus is the brand is plant-based, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, phthalate-free, and artificial color-free. The lotion does have a semi-strong fragrance. If this is something you’re sensitive to, this may not be your cup of tea.
Elemis Superfood Face Oil – I had heard great things about this face oil and so far I’m loving it! It’s thicker than the face oil I was using before, but I’m almost loving that better. It’s hydrating and makes my skin look like a 100 bucks, lol. I have sensitive skin and I haven’t had any issues with breakouts. This is another clean beauty product and the fact that it’s a super-food product is so awesome! The smell is very green if you will, but I love the scent. I put this on before bed and use my new face roller.
Skin Gym Rose Quartz Crystal Facial Roller – This is my first face roller, so I have nothing to compare it to, but so far so good. I’m not as good at rubbing (patting, slapping, etc.) my serums, oils, and moisturizers in but now that I have this roller I spend so much more time on rolling in the products. Not only does it help the skin absorb the product, but it’s a nice stress reliever. We’ve had quite the busy weekend making the last couple of days very tiring, so my under eye bags were very prominent. I started rolling them out with my oil and face cream and it worked wonders… who knew?
Can you believe all these products are from Nordstrom? I’m just now discovering that they have all my beauty needs, which makes it even more of a one-stop-shop for me. I really love that they have clean beauty products and it’s easy to find on their website (trust me, it’s not that easy everywhere else). I’m discovering so many new-to-me products as well. I’m so excited to do more exploring and find new products I love to share with you guys.
If you’re looking trending now products, clean beauty, or to refill your tried and true favorites, be sure to check out Nordstrom. The customer service is always awesome and free shipping and returns is always a great perk.
