First things first let’s talk about the fact that I’m no longer breastfeeding and can actually do some stuff to my skin. I just had to share that with you guys because that’s the only positive thing about it right now. I felt so disgusting for so long because my skin was so gross and cruddy. I absolutely love trying and playing with different products. So I’ve tried and rounded up some products that are HOT right now that actually live up to the hype.
The other day I went to Sephora to use my VIB discount code. I asked the girl what is new and what should I try? She asked if I liked skin care. DUHHHH I live for skin care. So she starts telling me about this Drunk Elephant TLC facial. She pulls another associate over and they both start raving over it. Then I go to the from to pay and the clerk pulls it out of my bag and says “This stuff is amazing.” Ok ok I get it, I’m sold. I’ll admit it tingles a bit when you first put it on but that strangely tells me it’s working. My skin looked so fresh and amazing and I’ve only tried it once. I can’t imagine what it will look like when I used it weekly. I do use retinol throughout the week and you are definitely not supposed to pair them together. So now for example I’ll have to use retinol on Sunday, the baby facial Wednesday and retinol again on Sunday or vice versa. This stuff is the bomb and well worth the $80 price tag. It’s a luxurious facial at home and let’s face it, spa facials cost way more.
2. Kate Sommerville Eradikate
I have been using this product for about 8.5 years when it wasn’t even in stores yet and you could only get it in LA. I remember buying it in the actual Kate Sommerville store in LA about 9 summers ago. I’ve been hooked since. Anytime I get a zit, I put a little Eradikate acne treatment on it overnight and when I wake up it has reduced the inflammation so much. It’s a lifesaver, especially with cystic acne. The Eradikate mask is also amazing for taming any hormonal flare ups. If you have any type of acne issues you need to try this.
3. IS Clinical Anything
I have fallen in love with my IS Clinical products. I do love Skin Ceuticals but oh my goodness I am obsessed with these products. Plus they’re safe for pregnancy and breast-feeding. So currently I am using their eye cream, hydra cool serum, active serum, pro heal serum, cleansing complex and youth intensive cream. I haven’t tried the shield balm but my friend Jessica raves about it. I had so many compliments on my skin tonight at an event. The only change I have made is switching to these products. My skin is also very well hydrated now. I use the eye cream at night and in the morning and the pro heal serum in the morning and the active serum at night. Also right before I put makeup on (which is rare) I put on the hydra cool serum to give me a good glow. I also use their spf moisturizer. Just call me an IS girl over here. I know some of you are gonna complain about pricing but hear me out. How much will you spend on botox or filler in your future when you’re older? Isn’t it better to be preventive now? Plus good health skin doesn’t have a price tag to me. I love taking care of my skin and looking youthful. If you take care of, it will age beautifully. Feel free to message me privately for questions.
I’ve talked about Micellar water before so I’ll keep this short. It is an amazing product to supplement with after washing your makeup off at night. It gets all of the leftover dirt and grime but it’s gentle on your skin and doesn’t strip it. Bioderma micellar water wipes away makeup extremely easily and your skin doesn’t feel dry nor oily in the least after applied.
5. Trophy Skin Microdermabrasion
How cool is this at home microdermabrasion machine? I have been getting microdermabrasions for about 10 years now off and on and it’s one of the main things that truly helps my face. I have a patch of skin on my cheek that bugs me so bad and if I could only be diligent about my microderms I know I could dramatically reduce it. But who has $150 to drop per treatment? Not me. I’m obsessed with my Trophy Skin Micro machine. It basically pays for itself after 2 treatments. It can fade freckles, reduce acne/acne scarring, diminish crows feet, and gives an overall glow to your face.
Let me start by saying no I do not sell Rodan & Fields and no I am not making money off of this. Now onto the matter at hand. I’ve heard from every single person who has tried this that it is freaking amazing. Even better than Latisse (which btw can change the color of your eye, you can’t use while pregnant and basically gave me brown eyeliner) I just started using this so I can’t personally vouch yet, however the numerous amount of women I know who do use it have eyelashes for days now. My friend Lauren didn’t have a stitch of makeup on the other day and I asked her without even knowing “Do you use lash booster?” and um of course she said yes. Her lashes looked phenomenal and she just started a few weeks ago. If you don’t believe me google the before and after photos. I can’t wait to see what mine look like. Click HERE to buy it. (Again I am not selling, I am just a customer who has seen great results but if you are gonna buy it, there’s your girl.)
Ok there are my current MUST HAVES. Yes all the raves are true. Every single one of these products has 4.5-5 star reviews. That’s impressive. I’ve personally tried them all too so if you have any questions or even suggestions please feel free to reach out to me 🙂 I’ll talk skin care all day. Xoxo
