I often add a space in my calendar to put in a “monthly favorites,” though I don’t always have “enough” products to show that would warrant an entire post. This is especially true for the month of October, most of which I spent in a different country. I do have a couple of skin favorites and mainstays that are similar to that of the last favorites post I did, but I hope you guys don’t mind if I also share some recent finds that I have been loving lately.
One Love Organics Brand New Day Scrub & Masque
This powder is to be mixed with water (to act as a scrub) or Greek yogurt/honey (to use as a mask). When I remember to use this—just about twice a week—my skin feels so refreshed and clean after. This will definitely be a mainstay in my routine. I just wish it were a bit easier for me to get.
La Roche-Posay Redermic R and Redermic R Eyes
This range is an anti-aging treatment that contains retinol, which has been really good for my skin, in my experience. I have only been using this for about a week and a half and I already see results in terms of my skin’s overall texture. I do think that the concentration of retinol in this might be a bit harsher than the one I’ve used before, so I’m limiting this to every other or every two nights. The eye corrector is to be used in the mornings and I quite like it, too.
Ellis Faas Skin Veil*
A recent favorite, but I hope it counts! I was surprised at this foundation because I wore it and didn’t even have to keep on checking to see if I was getting oily or greasy. My skin type is dry, but I live in a humid country, so I do look a bit oily at some point during the day. By the third check—with still no need to powder my nose!—I was impressed and stopped worrying about it altogether. Full review soon. Read More
