Last night's skincare routine. The order here is all mixed up. Used Plié cleanser to remove makeup, Exfolikate as a second cleanse. Hydrate serum is quite interesting, once it sinks into the skin it felt kind of tight, I needed something on top ASAP. Étoile oil on top and voila, just like magic, works perfectly together really loved the oil!
Day 13 of #januaryskinchallenge - Travel. This is focused on a long haul flight skin saviour of mine - Skin Hydrating Masque by Dermalogica. You put this on before your plane takes off and it completely protects the skin from the harsh air conditioning, plus no one can see you're wearing it since it's clear. This saved my skin from going totally bananas from air conditioning, jet lag, and change of environment. Highly recommend. Thank you to @lisaeldridgemakeup for talking about this years ago in one of her videos
#januaryskinchallenge Day 12: You'll use forever. This is a tricky one because I don't know how my skin will be in 10, 20, or 30 years from now, but I decided to go with Sunday Riley Good Genes simply because I cannot imagine my skincare routine without it. If this disappeared from my stash, I would have to run and get a new one immediately. Unfortunately I wasn't blessed with good genes, I've been having problems with my skin for 15+ years now, it is breakout prone with lots of acne scarring. But this products really gives me the confidence boost I need. So far I've used up one 30ml bottle and it has improved my skin tremendously, it is more clear and more even toned. Ride or die. Holy grail. Will use forever. Till death do us part. The end.
#januaryskinchallenge Day 11: Initial bad impression - May Lindstrom The Honey Mud. At first I tried using it as a cleanser and didn't like it all, it was too sticky and I just couldn't make it work. Then I tried it as a mask, applied on damp skin (this is important! It's too hard to spread on dry skin) and fell in love! My favourite way to use it is in the morning, I leave it on as long as I can, sometimes even up to an hour, or leave it on while in the shower. It leaves the skin so soft and delicious. And the smell is absolutely divine. I'm running out of this sample too quickly and will need a full size soon! I just don't want to be without it
