I have finished a ton of skincare lately. Too much for one post. I’m separating the serums out and will do those in the next week or two.
I tried out a new kind of Simple wipe!
I figured if I like the micellar water, and I like the wipes since they don’t burn my face like other kinds do, then I would love the two smooshed together. And I really did. They were slightly more moisturizing than the normal wipes. Just a teensy bit more gentle. I’ll give these a try again!
I really, really like Mad Hippie’s vitamin c serum, so when I ordered my last bottle, I sprung for the eye cream too. It was just okay. It wasn’t hydrating enough for me, but it did help with smoothing and de-puffing and it didn’t exacerbate the puffiness like a lot of creams can.
For Christmas this year, my Mom gave me Neutrogena’s Microdermabraision system. Obviously I love skincare and I’m a fan of gadgets, so it was a perfect choice. Is a battery-powered vibrating handset that has a rough plastic cap on it to which you attach a disposable solution-soaked pad. (It works a bit like Velcro.)
I started using it as directed, 2-3 times a week and then reduced. I found the solution to be way too strong for my face. What I like to use it for now is my neck and chest in lieu of a scrub.
I finally finished my tub of of Express the Truth moisturizer. I purchased this before I decided to avoid silicone in my nighttime skin care. I started using it in the morning and didn’t really think much of it. It smelled citrusy and wan’t too thick or too thin. I used it every day for months and now I really miss it. If I see it at T.J. Maxx again, I’ll definitely pick it up!
And finally, a montage of things I regularly use that I’ve already wrote about at length!
