My Skincare Regime

Is it just me or does everything seem to run out at the exact same time, namely with skincare and makeup. Well, this just happened to me a month or so ago and I decided it was the perfect time to switch up my skincare regime.  

I had previously used all Mario Badescu products and was happy with them but just looking for a change.  I got the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish in my Birchbox and was obsessed after using up the entire sample.  I liked this so much (although, it kind of takes forever to use) that I decided to go ahead and get the toner - this toner is very hydrating, which in my experience is pretty rare.

After I use the face wash and toner I apply my StriVectin-EV Get Even Brightening Serum - you guys I have only had this for about 3 weeks and am already hooked.  My skin looks so much brighter and my dark spots and acne scars (yea, not a look I want) are already starting to disappear - this is a must have product in my book.

Once I am done with all that (I know, skincare is quite a process) I apply Ole Henriksen Truth Creme at night - this stuff is amazing - it's moisturizing but not oily plus it's formulated without parabens and sulfates and best of all  it's affordable too! For the day time, I tend to skip the face wash and just use the toner, serum, and Kiehls Ultra Facial Moisturizer - I have used this day lotion for 4 years and have no plans on turning back.  It's the perfect day lotion - moisturizing but very light and with the necessary SPF.

To finish off the entire process I use Origins GinZing Eye Cream for both day and night - I recently got called out for all of the fine lines around my eyes and knew that I needed to switch up my eye cream asap. On my friends recommendation, I decided on this eye cream because it has got rave reviews and has caffeine in it (which, apparently your eye cream should have, I never never this...opps)

That wraps on my skincare regime for the most part, I do use Fresh Sugar Lip Polish 2-3 times a week to exfoliate my lips though and this is kind of crucial in the winter for me, since I have severely chapped lips!  While I know this process can be very annoying and cumbersome, I think it is worth it and plus having good skin saves me money on makeup, right?
