I hope you all are hanging in there. This week has actually kicked off on a good note, which is a new feeling while we are in quarantine. Over the weekend, it was SO nice outside, which was definitely a mood booster, plus Nick and I got a lot of spring cleaning and organizing done which has really helped with my productivity mindset! I feel like now that we are entering week 7, I have FINALLY gotten into a groove with my routine for working from home as well as my morning and night routines. Self-care has also been at an all-time high since we have been self-isolating in our apartment because now I have more time in the morning and at night to take my time and enjoy both routines. Lately, I have been on a kick with trying new products (specifically skincare) and after years of trying different products, I have finally come to find the top products that I love and use daily. Now, I definitely know that there will probably be more products that I come across that will probably end up replacing these products, but at this moment in time, these products are the go-to everyday skincare products that I love and highly recommend!
I have literally been using this product since before high school and this product has not proved my skin wrong yet! It is very gentle and deep cleanses your skin making it feel super clean and refreshed for the rest of your skincare routine. I know that everyone’s skin is different and different products work for different skin types, this product just happens to be MY go-to when it comes to cleansers and moisturizers.
A recent toner I have fallen in love with that is reasonably priced for being a high-quality toner. I hate toners that sting and irritate my skin. This product is super gentle on your face and it definitely feels like it is cleaning our your pores after using it. It smells amazing and it has definitely helped get any excess dirt or makeup off my face at the beginning and end of every day!
I never used to use serums or similar products on my skin because I didn’t really see the point, but once I tried this serum, my whole opinion changed. Not only does this smell great, but it has been great for helping nourish my skin after cleansing and toning. I typically use a vitamin c serum to help brighten up my skin in the morning and it works wonders!
I have been using this for almost a full year which has been great in tightening and refreshing my skin both in the morning and overnight. I use it every other morning and night to help give my skin a little break if it needs it from the excess oils and such. It is super nurturing and it has really helped my skin feel more firm and and soft throughout the day!
Murad Collagen Infusion (Morning)
I received this product in my most recent FabFitFun box and I have really come to love its effects on my skin. It’s helpful in the sense that it refreshes my skin in the morning and helps me look more awake for the rest of the day. It is a little bit pricy and I can work on finding a cheaper option to link, but the results are definitely worth the price,
Laneige Lavender Sleep Face Mask (Night)
I have heard really awesome things about Laneige and their skincare products, so I knew I needed to try them out. They are super gentle on your skin (which I love) and it has really been improving the softness and freshness of my skin when I wake up every morning. A little bit really does go a long way so I don’t run the risk of going through this product too quickly. This is definitely one of my more affordable skincare products and product lines that I would highly recommend to any of my friends who have sensitive skin and need a gentle sleep mask to help with hydration!
Laneige Sleep Lip Mask (Morning + Night)
This is another product from Laneige that I use mainly at night, but I like to throw it on in the morning after brushing my teeth. I’ve never thought about purchasing a lip mask until recently, but with the weather being up and down lately, sometimes my lips can get really dry which is just gross and uncomfortable. I highly recommend this product because it helps moisturize and soothe your lips overnight so you wake up with softer and hydrated lips in the morning! Most definitely a must-have for any skincare routine.
I found these through another MI influencer I follow and I am so obsessed with them. I struggle so much with under-eye puffiness and darkness in the morning, even when I sleep really well, and I have tried lots of under eye treatments to help soothe or tighten under my eye in the morning, but these are by far one of my new go-to’s for under-eye care. The brand Pixi Beauty has a few other eye patches that can be used to target other under-eye issues you may be having, but these are perfect if you struggle with puffiness in the morning!
The same influencer who shared the eye patches also shared these amazing chin lifting masks that help shape your chin. I got them off amazon and even though you may look absolutely ridiculous, they are oddly soothing to wear around your home and they also work super well! The masks are meant to help with wrinkles, chin sagging, double chin problems, and provide tons of hydration to your skin. I do not use this every day because I believe only 5 masks come in a pack, but they are definitely nice to use every once in a while in the morning. I almost have to laugh at myself for buying and liking this product as much as I do, but hey they work and have been a fun thing to try!
I hope you enjoyed reading this post! I know that everyone’s skin type is different and requires different products, but these are the products I have found and that have really been helping with my personal skincare routine. Now that we are stuck in our homes for a little while longer, why not try some new products and pamper yourself a little bit? I linked all the products in case you want to try them and if any of you have your own recommendations to share, please let me know in the comments because I would love to check them out. I hope you guys have a great rest of your week and I can’t wait to talk to you guys again next Tuesday!
