Beauty Favorites: March

Thursday, March 15, 2018

Every winter without a fail the drop in temperate, lack of sunny weather and long harsh winter is always so rough on my skin, and yet I am never prepared for it. I try and make taking care of my skin a priority, and since I have very sensitive skin trying out new skin care products sometimes is a risk. However I think that at this point, I have become really good at identifying when makes my skin worse or better and what product actually works. These are my March dry skin- recovering from winter favourites.

OLEHENRIKSEN Transforming Walnut Scrub:
A good deep cleanser is a must have! After a long winter, make-up, lack of sleep and lack of sun my skin starts looking a little dull and uneven.  A friend recommended this scrub and I picked it up. I love how it feels on the skin, and it leaves your skin feeling so soft to touch. I have used it for about two weeks and my skin hasn't looked this great in years.  It also smells pretty amazing, I was worried that the fact it has a scent would make me break out but two weeks in and my skin is all good.

LANEIGE Water Sleeping Mask:
Previous to getting a trail kit to try I have never tried a sleeping mask of any sort. This is an overnight, moisture-recharging gel mask that quickly absorbs while you sleep to deeply hydrate skin. After first use I could notice my skin feeling better. This product also as a little bit of a scent and since  I have sensitive skin I was a tad worried but two weeks later and I can apply this product freely knowing that it will not break me out or make me oily. It hydrates the skin and leaves your skin feeling super soft.

 Philosophy Clear Days Ahead™ Fast-Acting Salicylic Acid Acne Spot Treatment:
One of my issues that my skin is so annoyingly sensitive and that it still breaks out. One of the things my skin does not play well is salicylic acid. I took a chance on this and I found this to be an effective spot treatment that does not overly dry the skin, even though the active ingredient is 2% salicylic acid. Worked well to clear up my skin in about two days.
LANEIGE Water Bank Serum:
This Serum is a must-have favorite in my skincare routine.  I do use it before my moisturizer and my night routine. I love using this in winter because between dry and dull skin and this helps my skin feel moisturized and soft.
