Switch Up Your Skincare Routine For Fall

I use different skincare products different times of the year.  For example, when the air turns cooler and drier I tend to use heavier moisturizers and oils.  The air is so dry in the Fall and Winter in Kansas City, so I need to hydrate!

I have been sent the following skincare for my honest review:

Desert Essence Gentle Nourishing Organic Cleanser
Desert Essence Gentle Nourishing Organic Cleanser

Desert Essence Gentle Nourishing Organic Cleanser ($13.99 USD) — Nutrient-rich Apple Juice brings its natural benefits to this organic facial cleanser that contains no sulfates, harsh chemicals, dyes or fragrances. Aloe Vera, Chamomile and Cucumber extracts moisturize dry and sensitive skin to leave you with a fresh glow, outside and in.

What I think:  I have sensitive skin and most cleansers irritate it.  This does not. It leaves my skin soft and smooth, and not red at all.  It smells like orange juice and soap, which is a weird combo, but it isn’t strong.  I would purchase this again because it works well and is at an affordable price.

Arbonne RE9 Advanced Instant Lift Gel
Arbonne RE9 Advanced Instant Lift Gel

Arbonne RE9 Advanced Instant Lift Gel ($46 USD) — Key ingredients in this advanced formula work immediately to make skin feel firm and look lifted. Based on a clinical study of 20 women using the RE9 Advanced Instant Lift Gel, 95% of participants agreed their skin felt firmer and tighter after application.

What I think: As I get older, my skin can definitely use a little lift. I use this after cleanser and toner, before serum and moisturizer (yes, I use a lot of products!).  I let it absorb into my skin for a few minutes and I notice that my skin is firmer. I have been using this each morning and like

MD Complete 3-Day Booster Pack
MD Complete 3-Day Booster Pack

MD Complete 3-Day Booster Pack ($19.99 USD) — Simple, 3-step regimen designed to replicate the benefits of professional peels. All 3 steps are formulated to work together, so they’re all you need to see visible results in just 3 days. Helps to brighten and even skin tone, reduce the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles, smooth rough texture and brighten complexion.

What I think:  I used this three nights in a row (there are three sets of the peel) as directed.  It’s cleanser, peel, then moisturizer.  After the three days, my skin was so soft and bright, it really helped the texture of my skin.  I think for the price, this is something that I can do one a month and it will really improve my skin!

Philosophy Back To Nurture Deeply Replenishing Oil Gelée ($50 on sale for $31) — Rebuild skin’s protective lipid barrier with a botanical extract able to enhance cell renewal and vitamin d metabolism in skin. Restore skin’s healthy balance with our most complete blend of omega 3.6.9 essential fatty acids. Retrain skin to retain moisture longer with ceramides that mimic skin’s natural lipids.

Philosophy Back To Nurture Replenishing Moisture Crème ($65 USD) — Back to nurture replenishment replenishing moisture crème goes above and beyond what regular moisturizer can do to help replenish skin’s moisture levels by infusing it with encapsulated hyaluronic acid and shea better. It helps replump and soothe thin, dried-out skin with an anti-inflammatory magnolia bark extract and skin-renewing peptides. Licorice root extract and vitamin f help revitalize skin’s natural, healthy radiance. rich, soft texture absorbs quickly and provides long-lasting comfort.

What I think: Both of these product are made for dry skin.  They also work well on my sensitive skin if used at night (they are a little heavy as day products for my skin).  The oil gelee (which is mostly like an oil) works well when my skin is parched.  It sinks in and soothes it.  The cream is so hydrating and works well as a night cream.  I think these will be wonderful when it’s cold and dry out.
