Hi all! I hope you are having a great weekend! It snowed again today, but I am hoping it’s the last snow of the season. I am ready for Spring!
And speaking of Spring, I am looking forward to warmer weather for my skin. The cold weather makes my combo skin so dry and flaky. I have been trying new skincare (sent for my honest review) that I have been loving for my winter worn skin! They are from Burt’s Bees, Higher Education Skincare and Mamonde. Here are the products I’ve been loving:
Burt’s Bees Hydrating Overnight Mask ($14.99 USD) Provides 24 hour moisture and leave skin looking refreshed and healthy. This is a thick cream. The instructions say to apply a layer and leave on for 10 minutes, then rub the rest in and leave on overnight. My skin did look very hydrated in the morning.
Remove oil and impurities with this Exfoliating Clay Mask ($14.99 USD). Made with Kakadu Plum and Vitamin C, this gentle exfoliator cleans skin while also holding in moisture leaving skin clear and soft. This is gentle enough to use every day.
Detoxifying Clay Mask ($14.99 USD) With the power of charcoal, Burt’s Bees created a mask that will remove dirt, oil and toxins that can clog pores and can cause skin to look dull. Infused with acai, the rich antioxidents will leave skin balanced and healthy-looking. This mask really deep cleans the skin. I have to follow up with a moisturizer, but I do like that it cleans out my pores.
Available: Target, CVS and Walgreens Stores
Higher Education Skincare Cram Session Vitamin Infused Hydration Lotion ($33 USD) -Loaded with vitamin A, C and E, this super hydrating lotion will fill your skin with the vitamins it needs during the dry weather. Cram Session is also made with melanin, which protects skin from blue-light emitted from digital devices.
I like using this in the morning, before makeup. It smooths my skin so nicely. It is very hydrating and helps with the dry patches on my skin. I love that it contains vitamins and that it is good for my skin.
Mamonde Hydro Eye Gel Cream ($32 USD) — This eye cream is made with narcissus flower extract that will keep your skin smooth and hydrated. Its very nice for morning and night. It is hydrating, but is also light enough to wear under makeup.
