Overnight Face Masks from Fresh & SK-II

Fresh-Black-Tea-Firming-Overnight-Mask-and-SK-II-Overnight-Miracle-Mask
Overnight Masks? Yup, it’s a thing that’s been around for a few now and they have quite a few benefits and I’m a total fan these days. I have to admit, when I first heard of them a few years ago all I thought was, “Doesn’t the mask get all over the pillowcase?” Ummm, not really. I mean, you don’t apply it and then jump right into bed. The ones I’ve tried seem to sink in rather quickly but even if some did get on the pillowcase, it’s just a pillowcase and can be washed, right?

So what are these for?

Cleansing Balms from Emma Hardie & Botanic Farm

Emma-Hardie-Moringa-Cleansing-Balm-and-Botanic-Farm-Grain-Ferment

One of my favorite products to try out these days is cleansing balms. I love how they start out as a solid and then break down into an oil or milky liquid when emulsified between my hands. The latest ones I’m putting at the top of my list are these two:

EMMA HARDIE Moringa Cleansing Balm with Cleansing Cloth ($60/3.52oz @ emmahardie.com)

What It Is: A luxurious botanical cleansing balm that removes all traces of makeup. It doubles as a soothing and softening mask and universal rescue balm. Moringa seeds, wild fennel and vitamin E help to balance, purify and minimize the appearance of open pores, whilst a blend of uplifting orange, neroli and mandarin extracts combined with calming jasmine and rose to revitalize, dull, dry, dehydrated and mature skin.

Superfood Face Care from Lather

Lather-Caviar-Lime-AHA-Cleansing-Creme-and-Australian-Plum-Night-Creme

The word superfood is everywhere these days, in the obvious place, foods, but it’s also cropped up in skin care like in these two from the LATHER brand. Now I expect a lot out of my skin care products that I use. Multi-tasking is the name of the game!

I’ve been using their Caviar Lime AHA Cleansing Crème ($21/4oz @ lather.com) and the Australian Plum Night Crème ($43/1.8oz @ lather.com) for the past 6 weeks and I think the brand is onto something with these two.

Here’s the breakdown:

Caviar Lime AHA Cleansing CrèmeWhat it is

Reveal a smoother, brighter and more even-looking complexion with this luxurious and creamy foaming cleanser infused with Caviar Lime, a small yet powerful citrus fruit from Australia. Also known as Finger Lime or Microcitrus Australasica, Caviar Lime is especially rich in precious alpha hydroxy acids that gently exfoliate the skin’s surface to reveal more supple and radiant skin. The fruit also contains brightening, skin-protecting antioxidant Vitamin C.

With the addition of water, the thick cream transforms into a velvety soft mousse to sweep away dirt, excess oil and makeup. The formulation is enriched with nourishing botanicals that include meadowfoam seed oil, an excellent source of Vitamin E, and sodium hyaluronate (from hyaluronic acid) to keep skin’s moisture in balance.

#SaveOnSensitiveSkincare with Simple and Walgreens

Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum but all opinions are my own. Please see below for additional disclosure.

Simple-Wipes-and-face-products
Before you know it, summer will be here. I mean, it’s just about Memorial Day weekend, which is the official kick off of the season so get that BBQ started! And I don’t know about you but I like to simplify things as soon as it starts to get hot, like I move the family from one night to two nights of not turning on the stove, laundry is done every Monday eve instead of Saturday afternoon, and the cool basement TV room opens up for the kids and their friends to hang out in.

Also part of this paring down is the streamlining my sensitive skincare routine by incorporating products from the Simple brand I pick up at Walgreens. I love that they put their money ingredients where their mouth is, as in, Simple keeps it … simple! If you are an ingredient reader like I am, you’ll see that what they put inside the products is just as important as what they’re leaving out, like annoying artificial perfumes, harsh chemicals, or dyes. Summer is simple, so shouldn’t your skin care routine be too?

Collosol Eau de Lait

Collosol-Eau-de-Lait
I don’t know that last time I smelled a really French product. As in one that transports me back. And this COLLOSOL Eau de Lait ($18/3.4oz, $28/8.5oz, $38/13.5oz @ bigelowchemists.com, smallflower.com) does just that. It brings me back to my Aunt’s house just outside of Paris and when I used to visit as a child every year, then, quite frequently as a teen (it was my father’s answer of trying to tame me).

Created in Paris in the 1950s, this milky water cleanser and makeup remover has become a cult favorite of those in the know, and now I’m one of them!
