Time To Restock…
A few of you have asked about my skincare routine. It does tend to shift with the seasons or as I try new products I like, but one product I’ve used consistently for a few years now is this serum. I think it has improved the texture of my skin, and I notice a difference if I stop using it. It was reformulated last fall, but still has the separate oil- and water-based ingredients that blend when dispensed. (No mineral oil.)
This is another favorite beauty product that I’ve now been using regularly for a few years. I have very fine, thin hair so have tended to shy away from styling products, as they can weigh my hair down, or make it look greasy. This treatment does just the opposite! It actually makes my hair look and feel fuller without stiffness. And I think it helps my hair look clean longer. After I shampoo and towel dry, I rub a pea-sized amount in my hands and rub through my hair, then comb through.
Our climate is mostly dry so I use this sugar scrub year round, but I find it especially helpful in the winter. It smooths, moisturizes and smells heavenly. It works quite well on rough knees and elbows. It’s a bit gooey, so I keep a small spoon in the shower to scoop it out.
I’ve always had lips that tend to chap and flake, but since using this lip treatment I’ve seen a major improvement. They feel less dry, are far less prone to flaking, and look smoother and plumper when I use this regularly (a small drop 2-3 times per day).
I finally managed to get in for a manicure/pedicure late last week, and the nail technician recommended applying this moisturizer to my feet at night. Great stuff, really does the job, and paraben-free!
My friend Karen recently texted me raving about this makeup brush, which she found while on vacation in Hawaii. She says it’s the best for applying makeup, and really delivers an airbrushed finish. (She knows and loves makeup, so I trust her.) I’ve ordered one to try, will report back!
