Skincare has always been a priority in my life. I can thank my mom for always instilling a three step skincare routine since my pre-teen years. Cleanse, tone, and hydrate. My winter skincare routine requires a lot of hydration and products that are suited for my sensitive skin. Typically I have combination oily and normal skin, but for the winter months, my skin becomes oily, dry, and sensitive. Using a combination of gentle and moisturizing products helps balance my skin and keep it hydrated and clear.
Glossier’s new product launch of the milky jelly cleanser is one of my new favorite cleansers on the market. This cleanser is hydrating, gentle, and effective. You can use the milky jelly cleanser wet or dry and even over the eyes. I’ve been using this cleanser for a few weeks now and seriously love the versatility of it. Glossier is offering my readers and viewers $5 off + frees shipping site wide when you use “MILKYJELLYSEREIN” at checkout. Good through February 15th. It’s a great opportunity to get your hands on this new cleanser, great for all skin types as well as some of my favorite glossier products like the balm dotcom, mega greens galaxy pack, and moisturizing moon mask.
After cleansing my face, I like to use some sort of facial mask or treatment. I alternate between hydrating and detoxifying masks. Both masks from Glossier are gently and do not strip the skin. You can learn more about the masks in my full glossier brand review video and Best of Skincare 2015 video.
Now that my skin is clean and treated, I throw in a serum. Both the Murad Hydro-Dynamic Quenching Essence and the KaneNY Serum Savant are great for dry, maturing, sensitive skin. Both serums are rich and hydrating without leaving any greasiness to the skin. The KaneNY Serum Savant is full of Hyaluronic Acid and vitamin c that plumps, hydrates, and brightens the skin. I typically use the Murad during the day and KaneNY at night.
Finally I apply my moisturizers. Depending on day or night I will use my daily moisturizer from Fist Aid Beauty that has a physical SPF of 30 as well as keeps my skin hydrated or the Glossier Priming Moisturizer that has buidlable hydration. Currently, I am using Juice Beauty stem cellular anti-wrinkle eye treatment both day and night. For the lips I like to use Glossier balm dotcom, this stuff is amazing and works anywhere you are dry and chapped including hands, cuiticuls, elbow, and more!
