Dynamic Duo

Farmacy is one of my favorite skincare brands, if not my absolute favorite. I have a good variety of their products, but two that I find work so well together are the Skin Dew and Honey Drop.

I first start out by spraying my face with the Skin Dew and then moisturizing with the Honey Drop. Both products make my dry skin feel incredibly hydrated and moisturized without breaking me out. The Honey Drop is very light-weight and almost feels like a gel/cream hybrid. It doesn’t leave a thick, cream residue on my face with I like about it.

If you haven’t tried Farmacy’s products, I highly recommend them. The products are natural made with clean ingredients. You can get them at Sephora or on Farmacy’s website.

Skincare Gems

It’s always been important for me to use natural, cruelty-free skincare products. I have recently found some hidden gems that have changed my skin. Here’s what I have been loving…

Farmacy Skin Dew Hydrating Essence Mist & Setting Spray

I recently discovered Farmacy while trying to find a cruelty-free cleansing balm. I first tried their Green Clean cleansing balm which is now a staple in my collection. My friend recommended this skin mist to me so I actually bought the travel box set which included it. This mist smells amazing and fresh, just like limes. I love to spray this on my face after washing my face and then go in with the next product I will talk about. It really hydrates and gives my skin a healthy dewy, glow. Since it is an essences, it will make your other skincare products works even better.

Farmacy Sleep Tight Firming Night Balm with Echinacea GreenEnvy™

At first I was hesitant to try a firming product because I only use products for acne and dry skin. The first time I tried this overnight, I woke up in the morning and immediately noticed that the two lines across my forehead were almost completely gone. I could not believe I had seen such a drastic difference over one night. I love to put this on after I spray the skin dew on my face.

Farmacy Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask with Echinacea GreenEnvy™

This mask is so cool. Well actually, it’s hot. It’s a warming gel mask, so as you rub it onto your face, it warms up and turns white. After washing it off, my face felt so clean and soft. I then followed up with the firming balm and essence for the perfect skincare cocktail.

Lips 101 Ointment Strawberry Multi-Balm

Lanolips makes my favorite lip balms. I recently discovered this brand last year at Ulta. The packaging intrigued me so I decided to pick one up. The strawberry one is so nice. You can put it on thick and use it overnight as a lip mask, or you can put it on lightly as an everyday lip balm. I also get very dry around my mouth, so I put some balm on the dry patches overnight and it’s so much better in the morning.

Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Touch Hand Cream

Coming out of the winter season, my hands are still dry. My least favorite hand creams are ones that stay wet, thick or sticky on your hands. A lot of people love the Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream but a body cream wasn’t what I needed. I specifically needed a hand cream and I am so glad I got this. It smells just as good as the Bum Bum cream but this goes on your skin so light and it dries instantly. However, it doesn’t feel like it did nothing for your skin. It really feels like it sinks right into your skin.

Bronzed

Bronzer is my favorite makeup product. If I am doing my makeup for work, dinner, whatever, I always apply bronzer. I love matte and shimmer bronzers, especially layered on top of each other. Here’s some beautiful bronzed makeup inspiration along with my favorite bronzers at the bottom!

My Nighttime Skincare Routine

One of my new year resolutions was to invest in really good skincare. I got into skincare last year after discovering Juice Beauty. I absolutely love their blemish range. It has seriously transformed my skin. I used to suffer from acne and nothing I tried seemed to help until Juice Beauty. I love that the brand is organic, natural and of course, cruelty-free. Now that I have been using Juice Beauty for about a year, I figured it was time to switch up my routine and try something new.

If you are at all familiar with what’s “new” and “trending” in beauty, I’m sure you have heard of Drunk Elephant. This brand has blown up lately on Youtube and at Sephora. I had heard so many amazing things from beauty bloggers regarding this brand so I was very curious to try some products.

Drunk Elephant is a cruelty-free brand which is a must for me. Their products incorporate natural ingredients and no synthetic fragrances. Since I have acne prone skin, rosacea and sensitive skin, natural products with no dyes and fragrances is so important.

Let’s get into what I use!

STEP ONE

jelly

I start with the Beste™ No. 9 Jelly Cleanser. I wash my face with this in the morning and at night in the shower. The consistency is just like jelly, I really like it. A little goes a long way. You only need a drop. My face feels very clean after without feeling dry.

STEP TWO

facial

I use the T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial™ about twice a week. This is a very effective face mask, so you definitely don’t need to do this everyday. After cleansing my face, I put this on for the recommended 20 minutes. This mask makes my skin feel so soft after. It is definitely worth the high price tag.

STEP THREE
oil
Oils are new to my skincare routine. Since i’ve always had acne prone skin, I was terrified to put oil on my skin. However, I realized that my lack of oil was actually causing my acne. My face was too dry and screaming for some added oils. I am obsessed with the Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil. The consistency has some thickness too it. It’s not a super thin oil. I put this on after I cleanse my face, or if it’s a mask night, after I rinse off my mask. This oil doesn’t clog my pores and doesn’t make me break out. I feel like my skin is finally balanced.

STEP FOUR
cream
Last but not least. I finish my nighttime routine with a cream. The Lala Retro™ Whipped Cream has a light texture that doesn’t feel heavy or thick on the skin. It’s perfect after applying the marula oil. This feels like it locks in all my skincare. Definitely an important step.
