Join me for a double #exfoliation Thursday night routine:
. @goldfadenmd Doctor's Scrub, I acquired this primarily due to binge watching @trinnywoodall youtube videos. She uses this and loves it. Physical exfoliation might be controversial? I felt like a good scrub so I bought this one to try. It's a bit harsh for sensitive skin and made my face red but it subsided after washing. I like it. I'm getting more into the physical.
. @indie_lee COQ-10 Toner. Nothing like opening up a bottle of new toner. Has to be one of my favorite skincare products. This one is lovely and smells of sweet citrus and a tiny bit soapy. If a toner doesn't smell nice, then it shouldn't exist in my book. #carolinehironsmademedoit
. @drunkelephant Glycolic Serum. 12% I love this stuff. I basically put it on and wait 30 minutes to let it soak in. Great retexturizing serum indeed.
. @biossance Eye Gel is my go to. Love this stuff. It's got the best ingredients that will even make the greatest eye cream skeptic intrigued. It's got peptides and squalane and arginine and etc. . @freshbeauty Sugar Caramel lip balm. I got a mini sample from @sephora and will definitely be purchasing the full size. Omg it's sweet and caramel but had a zing. . @freshbeauty Vitamin Nectar face cream. Omg this and the toner go perfect together. I feel like fruity citrusy heaven right now. Perfect for bed. .

Tonight I was able try out the @goldfadenmd fresh appeal resurfacing peel that came in the January @popsugarmh.
1.7oz retails for $85..... Whaaaatt? Yes you read correctly. So, if you got your hands on one of these thanks to popsugar it was a score.
The peel is very easy to apply, and it tells you to leave it on for 1 to 3 minutes depending on how much you can tolerate it.
I left mine on for 2 minutes and only experienced very light tingling. You should only use it 2-3 times per week.
Although is too soon to tell, I am excited to see how my skin will feel after more uses.
Tonight's skincare ♂️ @eve_lom (the Gel Balm Cleanser love affair continues), @drbarbarasturm (love this regenerating mask), @111skin Eye Gel (possibly my favorite item from the NAC Y2 range), @africanbotanics Nutritive Molecule Serum (next level Vitamin C treatment), @goldfadenmd Plant Profusion Night Cream (leaves my face feeling super smooth and glowing, love the lightweight texture) #omgbart#skincareroutine

I'm late to the party as usual but here's what I finished up last month...
Nude Perfect Cleanse Cleansing Jelly
I've mentioned this before and it's a firm favourite, I love using it when I want something soothing and delicious. I've already repurchased and cracked open the new tube - something I rarely do with cleansers as I am a massive cleanser whore.
Omorovicza Cleansing Foam
I really enjoyed using this and kept it in my shower for quick morning cleanses. It foams nicely but isn't at all drying on the skin. It smells lovely and is a great one to use with a Clarisonic if that's your jam. Would I repurchase? Yes but not right now as I've got plenty to keep me going.
Another product that's gotten a previous mention here, I adore this luxe, unctuous cream. I'm pretty devastated that I've finished it because I fell in love with it but can't justify spending money on a new one right now. Maybe as a treat when I go back to work in October
Goldfaden MD Bright Eyes
I really liked this eye cream - it was light and beautifully hydrating. I don't feel like it made much of a difference to my dark circles but mine are more so horrendous that only a magic wand would be effective at this point. I won't be repurchasing only because I've got my sights set on something more anti-ageing.
Codage Day Cream
I definitely enjoyed using this moisturiser even though I could have done with something more hydrating for winter. However this would be a fab option come summertime as it's lovely and light and suits most skins. Makeup sits beautifully on top so it's a great pick for day-to-day. I won't be repurchasing as I'm obsessed with my moisturiser from The Ordinary right now but I'm keeping it on the bench as a possibility for the next time I feel like treating myself.
Have you tried any of these products? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
