Every Saturday I share my favorite videos and blog posts from that week. It is incredibly important to always share the things that inspire me. If you want a chance to be featured you can email me at email@example.com with “Link Love” in the subject line.
While I was on my San Francisco business trip with girl-karma I did my routines a little differently. For one, I tried to minimize what I generally use for skincare and double up on multitaskers. In the video below you are going to see how I got ready for bed every night after work.
Finally an updated skincare routine! My last routine was in May before I had phased out all of my non cruelty-free skincare products. When I’m thinking about skincare, I consider my skins sensitivity needs. I’ve had trouble with Eczema in the past and although my skin is not as picky it is still just as sensitive. I also have occasional blemishes, which are harder to treat since I am so sensitive. This routine is both for night and day. Watch the video below for more details and click the links underneath it to check out the products.
That is my routine! I know it is a lot of products but I’ve just come to realize that I am high maintenance when it comes to skincare (even though I am extremely low maintenance in makeup). I still use this technique to take care of the skin on the rest of my body, just in case you are interested.
When I finished my Willa cleanser (see my July Empties) I decided to try a brand I haven’t used since High School, Burt’s Bees. I was browsing Target for a graduation dress (ceremony is August 14th!) and came across the Burt’s Bees Sensitive Cleanser. My skin has been acting very strange lately (Sadly I think my Jergen’s Natural Glow moisturizers are at fault) as I’ve been getting some really weird bumps on my face, so I thought I should use something gentle.
When I first used this cleanser a few days ago, I was floored. It comes out as a creamy thick white cleanser and it feels very calming on my face. It took away my makeup (including mascara) and gave me no irritation. I had no problem using it around my eye area. I use this cleanser twice. First to get all my makeup off and then a second time to make sure my skin is clear. I’ve only been using it a few days and my skin is already starting to calm down.
My second new beauty find is the Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Eye Cream. I haven’t used eye cream in over a year. Honestly, I wasn’t really convinced that normal moisturizer wasn’t good enough. Well, when I started noticing my puffy eyes and crows feet in pictures (like this one) I figured it couldn’t hurt. I really like this eye cream so far. It’s very smooth and feels nice on my skin.
