Hi!

I feel that everyone needs some sort of creative outlet, or passion project. This is mine. I share original and curated content of everything from photographs of my home, to my love for plants, to my carefully curated playlists. My hope is that this blog will serve as a source of inspiration for you as well. 

Skincare Moment: Current Favorites

Skincare Moment: Current Favorites

I have never been someone who was obsessed with skincare - until recently. Now that I am beginning to "age" (and I'm using that word lightly, okay?), I am finding it more important to give my skin a little more tender loving care. I don't think it's necessary to use a million products on your skin to achieve that perfect youthful glow, but it's important to use the essentials - a mild facial cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and an eye serum for anti-aging. Speaking of eye serums, currently I'm using a pretty inexpensive product that I picked up from Marshall's. Lanoline's Intensive Eye Serum with Manuka Honey reduces fine lines and puffiness, and repairs damaged tissues. As you can see, I use it consistently (morning and night) because I am on the verge of running empty.

I love trying new cleansers from time to time, and the most recent is Alaffia's Everyday Coconut Face Wash. They have a full line of products for the face and body. 

I use Rosewater throughout the day when I just want to randomly spritz my face and give it a healthy shine. It has a light, fresh scent that's not overpowering, which I love. 

After I cleanse my face, I use Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel to tone. Using a facial toner is important after cleansing because it restores the PH balance in your skin. They are most helpful for people with acne-prone skin. Lately, I've been having issues with breakouts, which, at this age is puzzling, but currently, I'm having a good streak so I'm not going to jinx myself by talking about it any longer.

What are some of your favorite skincare products? I'd love to know!
