New to My Skincare Routine

Hey everyone! We are snowed in and I'm holding onto slight hope for a delay on Monday or, even better, no school. The BF and I are having a chill day watching movies and I did some baking. I didn't do my nails yesterday because my cuticles need some recovery time this weekend.

Instead, I thought I would share some new products I've recently added to my skincare routine. I've thoroughly tested everything out and I've noticed a huge difference in my skin.

See the snow in the background?!

Origins Clear Improvement charcoal mask 
I like to use this once a week to draw out anything deep in my pores. I start by opening up my pores with a warm, moist towel and then I layer the mask on. I give it about 15 minutes to dry before rinsing it off and I'm left with super smooth skin and visibly smaller pores.

Belif Eucalyptus herbal extract toner
This is the newest product I've added to my skincare routine. I've been through so many toners and they always leave my skin dry! This toner is super soothing with Eucalyptus and Apple Mint Extracts that help to eliminate oil without stripping my skin. After cleansing I apply this toner with a cotton pad by gently sweeping it across my face.

May Coop Raw Sauce
Out of all the products listed here, this is the stuff you MUST get. I have no idea what prompted me to purchase this, but I'm so glad I did. Raw Sauce is an essence made from a maple-tree sap base. It quickly absorbs into the skin and instantly gives hydration. The best part about this product is that it helps you make the most out of your serums and moisturizers. I've found that when I use my serum after this essence, it absorbs super fast. My skin has looked way more radiant since incorporating Raw Sauce into my routine.

Tarte Maracuja Oil
I only use this product at night because I find it to be way too heavy for daytime use. During the day I prefer to use Argan il. The addition of Maracuja oil to my skincare routine has definitely helped to make my skin look brighter. I like to gently pat a couple drops in with my fingertips before applying moisturizer. However if I'm feeling super lazy I just mix it in with my moisturizer and apply both at the same time.

Caudalie Grape Water
I wasn't sure about this at first, but it has been a great hydrator for my skin this winter. I've been using at the very end of my routine, after moisturizer, if my skin is particularly dry that day. I just need a few spritzes and I feel refreshed. The smaller size is also great to take on a long flight.

Have you added anything new lately to your skincare routine? I'm always looking for great products to try out! Have a great weekend and if you're somewhere snowy like me stay safe and warm.
