I’ve been a major slacker lately, at least in the beauty department. But with dropping temps, ain’t nobody got time to be slacking on their skincare (as I was so pleasantly reminded by my rough, dry skin). I’m currently focusing on upping my routine for the winter months and hunting down a good retinol cream. Please tell me you have retinol cream suggestions, because my skin is dyyyyyying without it (I can no longer use my old one due to my ever-difficult skin allergies). Also, I’d love to know what you’re doing to prepare your skin for winter, if you switch out products, etc and what beauty things you’re currently loving.
Thanks for reading and hope you guys have a great weekend!
Jergens BB Body Cream c/o // I’ve long been a fan of Jergens Glow lotion to keep my “glow” going throughout the winter months, so I was anxious to try their BB Body cream. My skin has gone through every torture imaginable with my skin allergies so anything that promises “flawless skin” I’m game for trying. After just a few uses, I definitely started noticing a more even skin tone and that alone is a miracle.
Dr. Bronner’s Soap // It’s not called “magic soap” for nothing. This soap may be the simplest soap on the market but it truly is magical. My Mom used this for everything growing up (yup, the dog even got bathed in it), so when my skin allergies started up I knew I needed to revert to my soapy roots. I have the unscented one for babies (because my skin is a temperamental baby that can’t handle any scents) and I use it for everything- face wash, makeup removal, body wash, makeup brush cleaning, even apartment cleaning.
Elizabeth Arden “Red Door Red” Lipstick c/o// I’m always on the hunt for the perfect shade of red. This one is my latest favorite. It goes on light so you can have a more natural lip, or you can keep applying it for a darker shade. Some of the red lipsticks I have go on so dark that I look more clown and less human. By the time I’m done blotting off enough lipstick to give me a “normal” shade, I’ve got more color on my face than I do my lips making me look like the victim of a clown murder. Hence, you can see why I appreciate a shade that goes on a bit lighter.
