I’ve gone mental over this before and with good reason. I try new cleansers all the time, high-end and low, but I’ve never liked one more than this. I buy multiples whenever I visit Trader Joe’s.
Facial Oil: NUDE ProGenius Oil
What more can I say about this that I haven’t already said? It’s expensive but I adore it, even if my husband asked why my face smelled like pepperoni when I got into bed one night. It makes my skin feel heavenly soft and I believe it has softened my expression lines! Omega fatty acids-sign me up!
Daily Moisturizer: Peter Thomas Roth Max All Day Moisture Defense Cream
After noticing multiple sun spots and learning a great deal about skin cancer, I decided my daily moisturizer had to have SPF. Non-negotiable! I didn’t want it to feel or smell like SPF though. Enter skincare God, PTR. I love the feel of this, the hydration and the beta glucan in it totally gives me a healthy glow.
Night Cream: Sephora Age Defy Night Moisture Cream
I’ve yet to find another night cream that I’ve been as happy with as I am with this. And for $30 too! This has Sephora’s special HydroSenn+, a more hydrating ingredient than hyaluronic acid. I love the thick texture and with my dry skin, it’s like magic butter.
Eye Cream: Algenist Eye Renewal Balm
9 times of out 10, I hear the word eye cream as ice cream and then I’m a little disappointed. I love this particular eye cream because unlike many, it’s safe to apply around the entire eye area, brow bone included. The texture is not greasy and soaks in lovely.
Anti-Aging: Peter Thomas Roth Retinol Fusion PM and Philosophy Help Me
I. Love. Retinol. My obsession with what it’s done for my skin is borderline sexual. Ok, like not really, but you know. I’ve gone through 2 tubes of Help Me and it’s the best “beginner retinol” I can recommend to you. I have really dry skin and it never caused redness, flakiness or peeling. I loved the results of this so much that I decided to graduate to PTR Retinol Fusion and you brought it Peter.
Blemish Treatment: Murad Acne Clearing Solution and Murad Acne Spot Fast Fix
I don’t get frequent blemishes, but usually around that time of the month, things get real.
I like to apply the Acne Clearing Solution to prevent breakouts and keep skin in a good place during periodic or stressful times and use Spot Fast Fix on existing blemishes. It takes them down overnight for me! Neither of these products dry my skin out and they both have pleasant, non-medicinal scents!
