Happy Sunday! I hope you all were/are/will be able to take some time for a nice Sunday spa routine! This was mine:
cleanse @larocheposay .
exfoliate @mgc.derma.cosmetics* -I'm still not sure if I'm 100% sold on a physical exfoliant but this really does feel nice once in a while.
mask 1 @georgetteklinger* -first time trying this and it's very nice! It smells like Vicks Vaporub (which is a smell I like-I have a propensity for odd smells ♀️) but the scent dissipates pretty quickly. It dries down, but not to that "oh god my face is being pulled off" feeling some clay masks get. I did mist it a few times with the Coconut Mist* but probably didn't really need to (but I kept doing it, mainly because it smells really good!).
Mask 2 @kiehls - this always feels nice on a warm day.
Treat @caudalie and @biodermausa .
Moisture #caudalie -I know this is an "overnight" oil but since I'm kind of obsessed with it and as far as I can tell there's nothing in the ingredients that are harmful for daytime use, I've been occasionally using it during the day. It smells really weird (which I like, as previously established), it's very lightweight, it doesn't leave a greasy finish on me-I just use a few drops less than I would at night. .
Let's talk about some of my favorite HOLY GRAIL skincare products from the U.K.! Botanics is a Boots brand that is now sold in Target here in the US. I used to use this pretty often when I was just beginning to look elsewhere for skincare products -- besides the usual drugstore face washes etc. The Rosehip Facial oil is thicker on consistency and make your face glow without being oily. The toning spray is something i use after the shower or really whenever my face is feeling dry. I highly recommend this brand, especially because there are different products for your specific skin type! I've also used their charcoal mask and it does the trick.

Sebum is NOT a bad word! Sebum is oil that is produced by your skin & although you may think it's sole purpose is to annoy you, it’s actual job is to lubricate and waterproof your skin. Sebum also contains water-insoluble fatty acids that have antimicrobial properties. This means you only want to remove excess sebum but you NEVER EVER want to excessively strip your skin of oils. It’s all about balance, and our Charcoal Detox Mask is formulated to give you just that as it cleanses AND soothes your skin WITHOUT drying it out. : @mariacast13
Current favorite Lip and Cheek Stain from @rrawph, in shade 'Cerith'. It's at P99.00 ($1.98). .
I know this is not skincare but I can't help to share this as this has been my go-to blush for weeks now, and lip color on chill days.
I have fallen in love with orange-y stains ever since I saw them, and I've loved the fresh look of this one from Rraw. .
I love the cutesy yet still minimalistic packaging! It's the first time I've tried a lip product on a lil' jar and polish-brush type - it's kinda ticklish during application.
Consistency is somehow slimier than most lip stains, color absorption is quick so you have to spread as you apply. If not it will leave a streak like on the 3rd photo.
But color pays off greatly 'cause you get that pretty natural-looking orange-y blush, perfect for the no-makeup makeup look, plus a glow when hit by sunlight, like on 5th photo.
What I like best about this, is that the color looks better the longer you wear it. And no adverse skin effects too if you'll ask .
I'm almost running out of mine now (less than half!) and will definitely be repurchasing. Especially with their new conventional packaging. Can't wait!

If you have acne, eczema, inflammation or a break out this is your best friend! Packed with antioxidants so you only need a little. The combination of French Red Clay and Grape Seed will tighten your face to no end while removing all impurities. I must say, this is one of THE best masks I've used along with a lot of feedback from customers! Look no more. #acneproblems
