Current SKINCARE Favorites

September 1, 2016

Skincare is one of the most important things to take seriously.  With all the make up and climate conditions we deal with on a daily basis, it is important to protect our skin!  Whether is super hot and sunny or dry and cold, finding the right product for you is essential!  And applying all different makeup on our skin and constantly touching our face with our hands {guilty!} isn’t the best either, so we need to be sure that we used products that can restore our skin to our natural selves haha.

Here are some of our current favorites!


Tee’s {skincare} Faves

One of the newest face washes I’ve tried…and loved is the Biore Baking Soda Pore Cleanser.  It has some exfoliating beads which really help by getting into your pores and clearing out the dirt!  It also leaves your skin feeling nice and smooth!

Another Biore product that I can’t get enough of is the Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser.  This is one of my favorite face washes because it makes my face feel soooo good after I use it.  Something in the cleanser leavings your face feeling super cool and refreshed, and anything to get rid of black heads is right up my alley.  I actually recommend using the baking soda first and then the charcoal cleanser since one exfoliates and the other foams and cleans.

The next two face wash options that rotate in and out of my shower are Garnier Blackhead Eliminating Scrub and the St. Ives Green Tea Blackhead Clearing Scrub.  Both of these products are phenomenal exfoliators.  I’ve had friends use them and not like how rough they are on their skin. I, on the other hand, love how many beads are in these washes because I feel like they are deep cleaning my pores and taking all the dead skin, dirt, and makeup off of my face.

 I love the St. Ives mainly because it calms the redness on my face and takes away my cherub cheeks haha.  As you can see though, a main theme throughout my cleansers is that they all help clear blackheads.  Both of these washes really help to soften the skin!

Kat always tells me how crazy I am for using my face cleansers as makeup removers, but I truly love it simply because it works!  It takes all my makeup off while ridding my skin of blackheads and acne!  Who doesn’t want that in their life?!

I’ll be honest having super oily skin has in the past scared me away from moisturizing my skin! I was afraid I would just make it more oily-which in turn is the complete opposite of what if actually does. I’ve really been into skincare lately and have already acquired a few must have products.

I have been obsessed with this Phyto Replenish Oil from Dermologica. You know I have been loving that glowy, luminous skin and this product has seriously changed the game. I put this on under my moisturizer before I do my foundation and I swear my foundation applies so much nicer!

Use code KATHRYNN20 for 20% off on Dermalogica!

My favorite night cream has been the H2O Plus Waterbright Illuminating Night Cream.

I feel like this has made my skin so much brighter and reduced dark spots from any scarring I’ve had. It feels great on the skin and I love that it has a pump that pushes up the perfect amount of product. You don’t have to dip your hand in the jar or question how much to apply!

To take off my makeup I alternate between two products. My ride or die is definitely the Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser. I have used this for years and swear by it. It exfoliates your skin without any beads and leaves it looking radiant and refreshed.

A newer product I’ve been using to remove my makeup every night is the Juice Beauty STEM Cellular Cleansing Oil. It removes my makeup and doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry or dehydrated.

It is definitely a different type of product because you rub the oil on your dry skin first breaking down your makeup, then you add a bit of water. I’m loving how luminous my skin feels after I pat it dry.

My last go-to skin care product are definitely my Pond’s Evening Sooth Makeup Wipes. I’ve tried so many makeup wipes in the past and these are my ultimate favorites. I use them to remove my eye makeup and any trace of face makeup that is left after cleansing.

They now have Cold Cream technology built in which I love because I feel like they are extra soothing. I definitely can’t live without these!

We’d love to hear some of your skincare favorites and recommendations. We are all about trying new products and are always on the lookout for some new favorites!

    I use Kiko Milano skincare products. I have been using them for nearly 2 years and thats a big thing for me. I used to try product after product as my skin would get used to one after a few months and I would have to change. But my skin loves Kiko!! It was the only range that cleared my skin after pregnancy. Also, I’m all for moisturisers with a pump/squeeze action. Unfortunately Kiko just changed to a jar which I can’t stand, I hate sticking my fingers into products. Loved all your recommendations and there are definitely a couple that I would like to try ❤

    Love Shan xxx
