AUGUST BEAUTY FAVORITES

August 22, 2018

I’ve been testing out a few new things for the past 4 to 6 weeks and below are my standout beauty products that I LOVE. If you’re going to purchase and use these or any skincare items for that matter, make sure you do a small patch test before using! Always smart to see how your skin responds to new items. I’ve been loving these and I wanted to share what’s been working for me the best.

PCA SKIN Pigment Gel: I’ve seen such an incredible difference in my acne scars and the discoloration of my skin. The PCA Pigment gel evens out skin tone, helps with hyperpigmentation and helps to brighten skin. I had a lot of trouble with a darker upper lip (I think common with women who take birth control) and the Pigment Gel has made a tremendous difference.

Elemis Resurfacing Facial Pads: I swapped my regular routine of using a toner for these facial pads and I’m loving them! They help to truly exfoliate any dead skin and even out my complexion without drying out my skin. I use them morning and night after cleansing and they have been the perfect substitute for my toner as it does so much more for my skin.

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant: Obsessed, obsessed, obsessed with this. This has been my go-to exfoliant. I love using it in the shower – I put it on my Clarisonic and exfoliate my skin and it just makes my skin look clean, healthy, radiant and so much more. I love that it’s so gentle, but does the job. I bought one for my sister as well. We both have sensitive skin and this has been perfect. Use it everyday!

Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil: I love the glow I get from this! I use it at night before going to bed or just a tiny drop in my moisturizer for the daytime. I also love using it right after I’ve done a heavy detox mask to make sure my skin isn’t stripped away from moisture. If you have really dry skin (I have combo) or are looking to give your skin some more TLC then I recommend trying this. It has a ton of antioxidants to really help nourish/sooth skin.

Kérastase Nutritive Masquintense: I’ve been using this mask to help nourish my hair and loving how soft and healthy my hair looks/feels! I use their shampoo and conditioner from the same line and both are amazing as well. If you have have dry/brittle hair, this is a must! My hair is pretty balanced, but I do have breakage that needs nourishing. For hair like mine, it’s great to bounce between a clarifying shampoo and something as nourishing as this hair mask.

PCA SKIN C & E Strength: This high concentration of pure vitamin C and E packs in so much punch! I knew a good vitamin C and E went a long way, but I didn’t know about the stabilization of vitamins in skincare before I met with the team at PCA SKIN. Having a stable vitamin c is super key – most forms of vitamin c are unstable and become oxidized when they are exposed to moisture in the air. This helps with fine line and wrinkles + evens out skin tones. It’s a must have in your regimen. Also, they ju

Dermalogica Hydrablur Primer: One of my favorite primers. This gives me the smoothest skin and hides every pore in sight. It makes my skin look flawless and gives me the perfect finish for my foundation. I only use primers when I have an important event or meeting – I don’t like piling on a ton of things under my makeup as I’m very picky and it’s skin first, makeup second for me. However, this is super lightweight and provides great hydration so my skin responds very well.
