Summer 2019 Post Shower Moisturizing Routine

Hi everyone,

Today I’m doing something that I haven’t done before, and that’s sharing my post shower moisturizing routine for this summer. I have done quite a few seasonal skincare posts, but never expanded beyond my face, and I thought why not. With that being said, let’s get into it.

I have two routines, one for the morning, which is the one I do most often and the other for nighttime. So the first thing I do after I shower is moisturize my body, which in the past has not been my favorite, probably because of the lotions I was using. But a few months ago, in the winter Walmart beauty box, I got a travel size Curel Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer and within the first two or three times of using it I was hooked. Because it’s a wet skin moisturizer you put it on right after you shower. It sinks in quickly, there’s no greasy feeling afterwards and you towel dry and continue on with your day. My skin loves it, it’s been so soft and smooth and I’m loving it. You can get this at any drugstore, it’s about the same price at all of them, and I believe you can get it on Amazon as well.

My next step is to moisturize my feet. For the longest time this wasn’t something I did, I just didn’t think of it, but now that I’ve been doing it for a while I wouldn’t go back. For this I use the Gold Bond Ultimate Healing with Aloe. I use this during the winter as one of my hand lotions and it’s so good. It’s a little bit thicker but it sinks in pretty quickly and you don’t feel sticky or greasy after. Along with the aloe it has vitamins A, C and E. I just ran out of this, so I need to buy another and you can also get this lotion at any drugstore.

After that I move on to my face and for that I’ve been using two products. The first is the Sephora Collection All Day Hydrator-Hydrate and Glow. I will pop this on before I put my makeup on, it has hyaluronic acid, glycerin as well as vitamins C and E. I really like this, it protects your skin from anything harsh in the environment while boosting the moisture that’s in your skin. It basically makes your skin really soft and smooth. The second product I use is the Ren Clean Skincare Global Protection Day Cream. I wear this on the days that I shower and don’t wear makeup. This has a ton of antioxidants, protects from UV damage, soothes the skin and has antiaging benefits. I’ve only been using this for a little while but I do like it. My skin definitely feels hydrated.

And my last step is my lips. Normally I pop on a little of my Vanilla Softlips before I do my makeup. But on the days I don’t wear makeup I use the Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy in Dream. This smells really good, is very moisturizing and slightly plumping plus it gives you a nice light pink on the lips.

For my nighttime routine, I only change a few things. It’s still Curel Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer first.

Then the Gold Bond Ultimate Healing with Aloe.

In the beginning of summer I was using the Sephora Collection All Day Hydrator-Hydrate and Glow at night as well. But now I’m using the Algenist Genius Sleeping Collagen. I’ve been talking about this a lot lately but I absolutely love it and my skin loves it.

And for my lips I use the Vanilla Softlips pretty much every night but on the night where I want a little more I use the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in Vanilla. It smells really good and it’s very hydrating.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we use any of the same products let me know and if not I’d love to know the products you do use.

Until next time, have fun with your routines and you can never have too many skincare products :).

July Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month, I thought today would be the perfect day to talk about my July favorites. I have an interesting mix this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my July Sephora Play Box, I’ll of course link that post below if you haven’t read it. And my Play favorite is the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes and Lips. You guys know how much I love this. I’ve been using it for ages and it not only takes off every stay proof, waterproof, long lasting bit of makeup, but it does so with a gentle formula so there’s no scrubbing or irritation.

JLSP2

Next up we have the Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Glace. Again, this is something I’ve been using for a little while and it’s just so good. This particular shade is like a dusty mauve and it’s so pretty. These lip crayons are super pigmented and really long wearing. I have quite a few Bite Beauty products and honestly they’re all great. If you’ve never checked them out then I highly recommend doing so.

My last Play favorite is the Marc Jacobs Fragrances Daisy Love Eau So Sweet. This is a scent that I would describe as very summery. It’s floral, fruity and just a little bit sugary, which is perfect. This isn’t one of those perfumes that you have to worry about being completely faded by the end of the day, it wears well and lasts a long time. I definitely recommend smelling this if you haven’t and you get the chance.

JLSP9

My second to last beauty favorite is the Pantene Intense Rescue Shots. I received this first in my Walmart Beauty Box, link below, and in my Target Beauty Box later, link below. So I figured I would give it a try. I take pretty good care of my hair so I didn’t know if it would really do a lot, but I have to say that I’m impressed. You use this after you’ve shampooed and conditioned and you apply it from the middle of your hair to the ends. It’s purpose is to target any damage you may have and to help prevent split ends, what I’ve noticed is that the portion of my hair I applied it has been softer than normal and I quite like that.

WBB9

And my last beauty favorite is Aloe Vera. Earlier this month I was doing something I’m going to talk about later in this post, outside in the heat of the day, for a long period of time, and I got the worst sunburn I’ve had in a really long time. It was so red and so painful and using aloe absolutely saved me. It ended up not peeling and actually turned into a nice little tan.

My next favorite is a book and it’s Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. I talked about the show adaptation in my favorites last month and after watching and loving that I decided that I had to read the book. I absolutely loved it, it was so funny and now I fully understand why so many people have loved this book for so long. It’s just fantastic. I 1000% recommend reading it if you haven’t and watching the show because David Tennant and Michael Sheen are incredible and do an outstanding job of bringing the characters to life.

Moving on, my next favorite is my sunflowers and the planter box I built for them, aka the thing that caused my sunburn. Back in June a neighbor of mine told me she had some extra sunflower starts that she didn’t have a use for and I very happily took them off her hands. I knew that sunflowers like to root pretty deep and have space to grow so I decided to build my own planter box. It came out so good, I’m super happy with it and the sunflowers have been thriving since I put them in there. I have to give a shout out to my dad for helping me with this because my woodworking experience is limited.

And my last favorite is a music favorite. It’s the song Superstitious by Europe. I feel like Europe is a band that gets forgotten about/people don’t know has more songs than Final Countdown. But my discovering this song was totally random, it popped up in my recommended on YouTube and I’m glad I clicked because I really like it. I listen to a lot of music and this song has one of, in my opinion, the best guitar solos. It’s just so good. And I would definitely say to give this song a listen if you haven’t, it’s pretty great.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites this month let me know and if not I’d love to know what your July favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great July :).
