I finally found a skincare routine that does wonders for my skin. It took me a really long time to get the results I was looking for but I finally found it. I love it and I am sticking with it. I am a bit of a skincare junkie and that can wreak havoc on your skin if you are not sticking with something that works and irritating your skin. The products I will be telling you about have given my skin the most amazing glow, smoothed out fine lines, smoothed out my tone and texture and given me skin I am actually happy with. The best thing is... some of my favorite things are DRUG STORE products!

This product is a gem. I came across it a few weeks ago on Pinterest and it said, "Dr. Oz say St. Ives Timeless Skin is all you need for perfect skin." I took that with a grain of salt but at the same time it intrigued me. I'm so glad the beauty junkie in me ran out to the nearest drugstore as fast as I could. First off, this baby was only $5 and the tub is HUGE (10 oz). I almost can't believe something is amazing could cost this little and it will last me probably a year! Thank you St. Ives for thinking of the customers!!! I really do feel it does everything it claims. My skin feels so smooth. LINK! If you want more info I linked up the St. Ives website. I give this product a 10 out of 10!
The St. Ives Apricot Scrub is kind of a cult classic so I don't know why it took me this long to try it. I've tried many, many exfoliators in my time and this one is my favorite. It doesn't feel to harsh on my skin and it leaves my skin with a healthy looking glow. LINK!
Philosophy Turbo Booster C Powder I was kind of nervous to try this because I had a horrible reaction to Ole Henriksen's Truth Serum but vitamin C is so important for your skin. I'm very pleased that I've had nothing but amazing results from this. Soft/Glowing skin...that's kind of the theme here. :) I mix a scoop of this with my St. Ives moisturizer in the morning.
I alternate between the Avon Anew Re-texturing Peel and the Somme Institute Transport Two Pads. They pretty much do the same thing- both gycolic exfoliating pads. I've been using the Avon Pads for about 4 years and I love them. They give amazing results and aren't over the top in price. To date it's one of my favorite beauty secrets.

I've been using this for probably two years now. It's a highly recommend serum by me. Whenever anyone asks me about a serum this is the one I always say. One word: Smooth skin!
I saw a review on this on Youtube and it really sounded awesome. I had never heard of this brand before but as you that never stops me. It's called LashEm 3 in 1 Eye Bright. This is a night only eye gel. What I've noticed is I don't need as much concealer, my eyes are less puffy, dark circles have faded, fine lines softened. So, I'd say it's BETTER THAN GOOD! I'm really happy with this because I've never really been impressed by an eye cream before- they all seem to disappoint. This did not disappoint! LINK!
This mask is amazing. Hands down the best mask I've ever tried. Want glowing results? Try this! I'm honestly in love with everything about it... except the size and price. I ordered mine from Sephora and when it arrived I was very disappointed with the size 1.2 for $69. What! I mean c'mon at least make it 4 oz for that price. But, will I buy it again? Yes yes yes! Will I complain about the size and price? You better believe it. I think the results are worth it though. Darn it. LINK!
These two products have been a life saver for my lips this winter! First I use the lip scrub in Blood Orange to exfoliate my lips and get rid of the loose skin and cracks.
It tastes ah-mazing! Second I put on the lip slip. This is an awesome moisturizing lip balm and it does leave your lips feeling sticky or goopy. Hurray!
I'm loving these Ponds wipes. I use these at night after I cleanse my face or if I've stayed up too late and need to get my make up off quickly.
Glad I could share my current routine with you. It's been doing wonders for my skin.
My skin is dry, with a semi-oily T-zone and prone to hormonal breakouts... boooooo!
Hope you all are having a fantastic day!
