It’s been awhile since I rounded up some beauty favorites. I have such a good routine going on right now, so thought it was the perfect time to dive into the beauty chat. Especially for S/S this routine is light and gentle, not drying, but also light moisturizers for daytime skin. If you have any amazing products you can’t live without I’d love to know about them. Share in the comments below!
I just love the feel of the Micellar Cleaning Water (which I use every night), so I do a swipe below my eyes in case I have any excess mascara when I wake up. I am super picky when it comes to moisturizers during the day. If it’s not a very light cream or serum, my skin tends to appear much more oily than it is. My current favorites have been (on rotation lately) Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum, Kypris Antioxidant Dew or La Mer Cool Gel Cream. Lately, I have been misting my skin a time or two with Evian face spray. My skin has been a little bit dry with the wind and weather shifting, so this and lots of water helps, too!
As I mentioned above, I love using the Micellar Cleaning Water to remove eye makeup and then I will do a swipe through my whole complexion. It just feels so good! I also just ran out of Tata Harper Purifying Cleaner and OMG is that stuff amazing. Another absolute favorite is Elemis Superfood Cleansing Wash. I am always rotating favorites to give my skin something new.
Next up, I’ve been testing out the new Fresh Rose Toner, which I immediately saw its impact on my skin the first time I tried it. It basically removes any impurities from your skin and preps it for the next 2-3 steps before heading off to sleep. After cleaning and toning, I use the La Mer eye cream (totally obsessed with this).
I then add a couple of drops of my favorite Kyrpis Moonlight Catalyst Serum. This has been a consistent obsession of mine since I mentioned it last spring. For being so gentle and light, it has such a powerful effect on my skin. It’s one of those magical ones you smooth on before bed and wake up to noticeably glowing skin. If I want something heavier I love the Avene Skin Recovery Cream. After a good moisturizer, I always add an oil. I love Tata Harper Retinoic Oil, Elemis Superfood Face Oil, and Kyrpis 1,000 Roses.
