Spring Skincare Routine

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be sharing my spring skincare routine with you. I’ve done a few of these posts in the past and I quite like them. I have two routines, one from the beginning of spring and one that I’ve been doing more recently and that includes products that I got more recently. I will link all the products I mention below. That being said, let’s get into it.

So for the first routine, the first thing I do is use the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lips and Lashes. It has a great formula that is really gentle but super effective, no scrubbing needed. I put this on a cotton pad and swipe it over my eyes and lips.

My next step is to take off the rest of my makeup and for that I use the IT Cosmetics Confidence In A Cleanser. All you do is gently massage this onto wet skin for about 30 seconds and rinse when you’re done. This is different to other cleansers because it not only cleanses but it moisturizes. The first time I used this I wanted to see how good it really was so I didn’t use anything else after and I was impressed. So it’s great in either application.

MRSP2

After that I use the Caudalie Vinoperfect Concentrated Brightening Essence. I put this on a cotton pad and swipe it over my entire face. This really helps to remove any dead skin cells so your serums and moisturizers can really sink in to work to their fullest.

My next step is serum and I have two that I go between. The first is the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum. This is really great for evening out your skin tone and brightening your skin. The second is the Olehenriksen Truth Serum. This is full of Vitamin C, aloe juice and green tea and orange extracts. It’s super hydrating and also brightens your skin.

SSP7

I follow that with my moisturizer, which is the Dr. Dennis Gross C+ Collagen Deep Cream. I recently repurchased this because I was using it almost everyday and it’s so good. It’s very moisturizing, it sinks in to the skin quickly and my skin loves it.

AGSP9

My second to last step is to apply eye cream. For that I use my holy grail eye cream that I talk about all the time, Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb. I’ve been using this for a while now and I love it.

FSP3

And the last thing I do, and I do this right before I go to bed, is to put on a lip product. I have two that I go between. The first is Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask in Natural, I’ve been using this for a while and it always makes my lips super soft. And the second is Vanilla Softlips. I’ve been using Softlips for years and it’s a product that I know is always going to hydrate my lips and smell good doing it.

AF3

On to the second routine, this has quite a few new/different products starting with what I use to take off my eye makeup. And that is the Lancôme Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup Remover. This easily takes off all of the long lasting/waterproof whatever I’m wearing and it leaves my skin feeling refreshed.

DSP5

My next step is to take off the rest of my makeup and to do that I use the Sephora Collection Triple Action Cleansing Water. This is a very recent addition to my skincare routine and I’ve really been liking it. I put it on a cotton pad and swipe over my entire face. This is soap free so you don’t have to rinse after using and it has Matcha Green Tea extract which is great for the skin.

APB8

I follow that with the Caudalie Vinoperfect Concentrated Brightening Essence.

JSP5

And my serums, Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum and Olehenriksen Truth Serum.

SSP7

I then moisturize using the Clinique Moisture Surge 72 Hour Auto Replenishing Hydrator. This is incredible. It sinks in to the skin quickly, it’s light and it does keep hydrating your skin. My face feels so soft after using it, it’s been a game changer in my routine.

FBSP3

My second to last step is eye cream and for that I use the Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream. This is the only thing I’ve tried that really rivals the Belif cream. This is really good. It hydrates, brightens and I can tell that I look more refreshed after using it.

APB9

When it comes to putting on a lip product, besides the Vanilla Softlips, I’m also using the Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment in Dream. This always leaves my lips feeling really moisturized and it smells amazing.

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 what products you do use.

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

March Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I received my March Play Box from Sephora and I thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme for this month is Beauty in Bloom. Now that it’s officially Spring, these products, a bouquet of beauty is what they’re calling it, are here to help you with your spring looks. The bag this month is similar to the previous months, plastic with a snap closure, see through red on the front with various beauty and lifestyle objects and Play! By Sephora in the middle. The back of the bag is white with ‘Your once-a-month, squeal-inducing bag of amazingness is here #SephoraPlay’ written in red.

MRSP1

The first product we have is the Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo. This is supposed to leave your hair feeling soft, refreshed and give you volume. I absolutely love Amika, so when I saw this I was excited. I use their dry conditioner and hair mask and it does wonders for my hair. If you’ve never checked them out, I would definitely recommend doing so.

MRSP5

The next product we have is the IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cleanser Skin Transforming Hydrating Cleansing Serum. This is a one step cleanser that is supposed to not only remove all of your makeup, but hydrate your skin. I’ve never used any of the IT Cosmetics skincare, but I like them as a brand. I’m interested to try this and I’ll let you guys know what I think.

MRSP2

Moving on, we have the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation in Y245- Soft Sand. I’ve tried a couple of the Make Up For Ever foundations in the past and I like them. This one is a medium coverage, while being lightweight and buildable. And it’s supposed to leave you with a natural finish.

MRSP3

Next up we have the Sephora Collection LashCraft Big Volume Mascara in Noir. This is a mascara that I’ve talked about before and am currently using. I like the brush that you get with this, it’s big and curved so you really get all of your lashes. And it’s has Jojoba Seed oil so it really doesn’t clump or flake.

MRSP4

The second to last product is the Nars Bronzing Powder in Laguna. I’m a big fan of Nars and I actually haven’t used any of their bronzers. The first thing I did when I opened this was swatch it and it’s honestly so pretty. It’s got the perfect amount of shimmer and the glow when the light hits it was amazing. It also seems to be really buildable and I’m looking forward to incorporating this into my makeup routine.

MRSP8

MRSP7

MRSP6

And the last product we have, this month’s bonus, is the Maison Margiela Replica By The Fireplace fragrance. This smells so good, it’s woody and spicy but also a little vanillay and sweet. But not in an overpowering way, it’s very well balanced. It reminds me of sitting around the fire with friends roasting marshmallows. If you ever get the chance to smell it, I would definitely recommend doing so.

MRSP9

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your March Play Boxes let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).
