It’s current favorites time!!!! I have not been wearing a ton of makeup recently so I decided to try out a bunch of skin care these past few months. These are the ones I liked:
When I was at Nordstrom I saw the Kiehl’s Day-to-Night Healthy Skin kit. It comes with a whole bunch of Kiehl’s best sellers, and was a good value for money so I decided to give it a go.
My first favorite from the kit is the Ultra Facial Cream. I use this during the day and under make up. It gives enough hydration without making me oily throughout the day.
I have also been loving the Daily Reviving Concentrate for weekends when I’m staying in and I want to use an oil. First lets start off with the smell. It smells like oranges!!!! The scent does not linger however and goes away once you put it on. This is a light oil that is thinner than my other facial oils. It sinks in super quick and surprisingly does not leave me greasy.
I have been LOVING Chanel’s sunscreen. It is ridiculously expensive for what it is but it is the only one I have used so far that does not make me breakout. The main reason I enjoyed this so much was the finish on the skin. It dries to a matte finish, which makes putting anything over it very easy. Makeup doesn’t separate under this because there are no oils seeping through. I like to mix a drop of this in with my Ultra Facial cream and pat it all over my face and neck.
My final favorite is the Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser. I bought this for the purpose of trying out a gentle cleanser. This cleanser doesn’t lather up like others I have used in the past. It is supposed to be good for washing away makeup as well…its fine for that. I find that if you have any eye makeup on it will not be able to wash it away. It is not oily enough to dissolve mascara, but it does a good job with concealers and powders. I use this in the mornings and at night on makeup days as a second cleanse after I use an oil to break down my makeup.
