What skincare product are you into right now?

BORED. So borrrrrrreeeeed! You know how sometimes you'd have a closet full/bursting with clothe but "nothing to wear"? I'm like that right now with skincare. Currently I'm using a retinol serum at night, so I can't try any fancy exfoliating stuff. And it's really dry winter, so I don't wanna risk flaky skin with new moisturizers. Which leaves masks as the one thing I can play around with......... so far I've tried ALL of Glamglow, Boscia, Wei and Origin's masks. Also Murad clarifying, SK-II/When/Shiseido sheet masks, Fresh Rose/Black Tea, PTR cucumber/sulfur, and OH blue/blackberry. This is literally me right now (minus the sexy air):

So, any mask recommendations?

 

Or is there a new skincare product you are trying and liking? do tell. =)

Re: What skincare product are you into right now?

also, have you tried rosehip? that is one of my favorites, although they turn rancid quickly, and i can't justify buying a new bottle of face oil. supposedly it has retinol-like properties. 

Re: What skincare product are you into right now?

I did try rose hip, but I was a bit disappointed. It's not nearly as moisturizing for my dry skin, but I didn't use it long enough for the retinol-like benefits.

Re: What skincare product are you into right now?

I tried a sample of the Shiseido Future Solution LX and fell in love. It is lightweight, absorbs instantly, and doesn't irritate my eyes. But I just don't see myself paying sooo much for an eye cream at the moment.

 

The Boscia oil I grabbed a full size once I tried a sample from Sephora. It has this very light pleasant smell and really gives my skin a nice dewy glow. I have seen an improvement in my acne scars in a matter of 2 weeks.

Re: What skincare product are you into right now?

Oh that Shiseido line is SOOOO expensive! I remember reading an article awhile back about SUPER expensive skincare and how EVERYTHING is designed to make it feel as luxe as possible from the look and the weight to the sound of the click when you close it etc.

Re: What skincare product are you into right now?

I just LOVE the packaging for this eye cream. It looks so mysteriously gorgeous! I need want it on my dresser! I might start saving and wait for Sephora's fall sale to buy it....

Re: What skincare product are you into right now?

I got a sample of eye cream from La Prairie, but I am afraid to use it in case I actually like it.  Full sized (.5 oz) is $325!!!! 

Re: What skincare product are you into right now?

Really? Eeeeekkkkk! That's a bit hard to justify sometimes, isn't it?

Re: What skincare product are you into right now?

Yeah, and here I was feeling guilty for using a $65 dollar eye cream!  They sent me a generous sample (1/4 size), but I just can't bring myself to try it!

Re: What skincare product are you into right now?

Hmmmm, better to let it sit in your drawer and go rancid! Lol! Let me know if you end up liking it so I have yet one more indulgence to hide from my husband. Smiley Wink

Re: What skincare product are you into right now?

Well, if you can't bring yourself to try it.....

Re: What skincare product are you into right now?

Right now I'm kind of obsessed with Sibu Beauty and Andalou Naturals as a whole. And randomly finding products at Tj Maxx and Ross for a super good deal is not helping ( normally I get these products at Sprouts and Whole Foods for full price).

 

I am on a cleansing balm fix right now---I got a deluxe sample from REN and a sample of the Clinique one from a friend and I bought the Clinique full sized one from Sephora already. At first I thought it was weird that you rub it onto dry skin but its magical---it turns from a solid balm into an oil, melts off 100% of my makeup including eye and rinses clean without leaving my dry skin tight and uncomfortable.

 

OH OH! And Egyptian Magic Skin Cream! I LOVE this for PM use before bed. Its all natural, only has a handful of ingredients in it, and feels very luxe---balmy texture, 4 oz for less than 40 bucks at whole foods. When my skin is acting up ( redness, breakouts, sensitivity, etc) I put it all over my face before bed and it heals my skin overnight. MUST HAVE.

 

I also fell in love with Waxelene at Whole Foods ( it comes in a tube, a small jar and a LARGE 9 oz jar). Its a Vaseline substitute, all natural and supposed to be good on dry skin/lips/good as makeup remover. I rubbed a bit on my lips and OMG---smells so good, feels soooo good, really gets into dry lips and heals the dryness and I don't have to worry about ingesting something awful. I ordered the big jar from Amazon ( cheaper hehe....) and cant wait to try it as hand cream and makeup remover and maybe even face cream. LOVE the texture.

These are some rave worthy products that you might not know about. Smiley Very Happy

Re: What skincare product are you into right now?

I am so intrigued by the Egyptian Magic cream! Sephoramusthave - what is your skin type? I'm struggling with congested pores and some red marks from picking at my face, any thoughts on how it would help with these? Thanks! 

Re: What skincare product are you into right now?

LOVE waxelene!

Re: What skincare product are you into right now?

Yes!  Another cleansing balm fan!  Maybe I've been reading too much of Caroline Hirons's blog, but especially after getting into cleansing balms, now I never wet my face before using a cleanser.  How did you like the REN one?  Is it any good at removing make-up?  

Re: What skincare product are you into right now?

The Ren one is thicker than the Clinique one going on, smells really good and leaves my skin soft and hydrated. I've only used it 3 times and it does remove makeup because I used cotton pad and toner straight after and nothing came off on the pad. I didn't use it on my eyes though because a lot of reviewers said that it irritated their eye area. Its a lot more expensive then Clinique, but you get more products ( 3.8 vs 5.1 oz I believe). I also like that the REN one is all natural. I will probably repurchase the full sized REN but for now the Clinique one is my absolute fave one so far. I have the EVE LOM on my loves list, but the 7 step cleansing program is kinda turning me off ( who needs that right before bed when I'm tired?!?) and it has all those parabens.....but it is a cleanser so the ingredients wash off in the sink anyway.

Re: What skincare product are you into right now?

Thanks for the feedback!  The original Eve Lom cleanser doesn't appeal too much to me -- mineral oil being the first ingredient in such an expensive product doesn't thrill me, and I agree, the whole ritual that it calls for is a bit much.  I do own the Eve Lom Morning Time Cleanser though, and it is definitely a treat to use!  It's not the best at taking off make-up so I only use it as a second cleanser at night or in the morning.  If you want to try Eve Lom, definitely give Morning Time a go -- it doesn't contain the mineral oil and parabens, and it still cleanses perfectly well without all the fussiness that the original cleanser calls for.  I just checked the Sephora page, and it now comes in a small size!  The sample foil packet of 0.17 ounces that I had lasted for about a week with daily use so the new 1.6 ounces sounds like it would be a nice way to try the product over a long period of time.

Re: What skincare product are you into right now?

Oh I like the Clinique Balm. I tried a sample of Ren, but my main thing is that Ren products usually have a shorter expiration date and I've got too much backlog. =X

 

I've been hearing raves about Egyptian Magic Skin Cream here and there, must check this out....

Re: What skincare product are you into right now?

Currently in love with Caudalie Vinosource SOS Serum after I received a sample.

 

I use this day and night under my moisturizer. My skin gets super DRY in the wintertime and this milky serum (with a pleasant scent!) moisturizes my skin and makes it SO soft. I keep touching my face cause I wanna pinch my cheeks Smiley Very Happy I've tried clear serums in the past and it does absolutely nothing for my dry skin, so i was very happy with that one. 

 

For my night time treatment, I've been pairing the serum with a Caudalie night cream that is AMAZING but I threw away the package so I don't remember what the name is Smiley Sad I will have get back to you on that haha. It is a thick cream with an off-white/beige color??

 

This is my first time trying caudalie products and I'm smitten Smiley Happy They smell so nice!

Re: What skincare product are you into right now?

Thanks for posting about the Vinosource Serum!  I've been seriously thinking about trading in my Caudalie Club points for a bottle, but I've been waiting to hear if other people have had good results with it.  On the other hand, I've tried both the Caudalie Vinoperfect and Vinexpert night creams for months and neither worked particularly well for me. :/
