I’ve really been getting into skin care lately, in case you couldn’t tell, so this past month has been one of skin care trials and discoveries. Naturally, my favorites list is full of skin care items with a few makeup and bath & body items thrown in for good measure.
For moisturizers the Kate Somerville Goat Milk Cream (1.7 oz, $55) has been my go-to at night. It’s nourishing but not too heavy and it’s really been helping to replenish my dehydrated skin. In the mornings I’ve been reaching for the Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet (0.33 fl oz, $9.90 value). I love the sorbet texture and the light grape scent.
One thing I’ve been wanting to add to my skin care regimen for a really long time has been a hydrating but lightweight serum and my search has finally been successful. The Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum (1 fl oz, $49) really fits the bill beautifully. It’s been adding that little extra bit of nourishment that my skin has been graving during this frosty winter but because it isn’t heavy or greasy it works well under makeup which is why it’s become a staple in my morning routine.
During the last few months I’ve been using the Jergens Shea Butter Deep-Conditioning Moisturizer which has been great since the polar vortex has been dominating our weather. Now that spring is around the corner I decided that I would like something a bit lighter and fresher. Along came the St. Ives Intensive Healing Body Lotion (21 fl oz, $5.49). It has an understated cranberry-grape scent and a very lightweight consistency. On top of that it’s rich in antioxidants, 100% natural, vegan, and doesn’t contain parabens or phtalates.
I’ve been meaning to incorporate a body scrub into my routine for a while and this Philosophy Pink Grapefruit one (part of the Jolly Jelly Candy Set, on sale for $28) has been great. It’s been making my skin baby smooth and smells amazing. Since it’s a salt scrub it rinses very easily, which is awesome, but it’s not rough on the skin at all.
Lastly, the one makeup item on my favorites list is the Eyeko Black Magic Mascara (0.29 fl oz, $24). It’s been the one that I’ve been reaching for constantly this past month. I just simply love the way this mascara makes my lashes look. You can find my previous review of it here.
