Welcome to our first Skin Care Obsession blog! Every month, each of us will be highlighting some of our favorite products. From the cleansers to the creams, we’re covering it all. Skin care is something we both love and take pretty seriously, and we’ve been wanting to share it with you for quite awhile. It’s never too late to start on a simple and effective routine that keeps your glam going! Especially with so much travel planned – it’s essential to keep your skin in tip top shape. You may have seen the below on our insta story – or you may have tried them out for yourself! Let us know if you’ve tried any of these products in the comments, we love your reviews!
Haley’s March Pick
MAELOVE The Day Eraser Face Cleansing Oil
Why I love it – I am obsessed with all things MaeLove. This one and done product removes makeup while nourishing the skin. It is vegan and cruelty free and made for sensitive skin like mine.
How to use it – Using your hands while trying to cleanse your face can be contradictory. Our faces deserve a clean towel or cloth to wipe away the day and not our dirty hands. Place the oil on a clean towel/cloth and slowly wipe your face with minimal pressure. This process will take your makeup off (ladies) while cleansing your skin. The Day Eraser is safe to use on your eyes (i.e. eye make up).
Where to buy it– The best deal is definitely Amazon – we’re big fans of not spending on a fortune but still looking like one!
Rachel’s March Picks
Why I love it – This mask not only has the amazing ingredients Body Merry has come to be known for, but masks are a great way to take a little “me time” in your day! Charcoal penetrates deeply to remove grime and oil and impurities that we build up from our busy lives. Plus, unlike peel off masks this one washes away with warm water so there is no pulling creating premature wrinkles! This generously filled 4oz container is the real legit all in one deep clean. You also get to look like a mud monster for 10min and scare your pet/SO/neighbors/self.
One of my favorite parts? Body Merry is cruelty free and totally safe for all skin types. They love our furry friends, and ensure their ingredients are effective while vigorously tested for all sensitivities. Check. And. Mate.
How to use it – Start with clean and damp/moist skin. Avoid sensitive eye area and hair. Use circular motions to gently massage the scrub for 30 seconds. Once finished, allow mask to sit for 10 minutes. Rinse well and follow with a toner, serum and/or moisturizer. For sensitive/dry skin, use once a week and gradually increase to twice a week. For normal to oily skin, use twice a week. Adjust usage to what works best for your skin.
Where to buy it – I recommend the amazing skin care deals on Amazon – but first sign up for the emails on Body Merry’s website to check for some of their amazing sales! This mask only comes in at about $17 and there are deals aaallll the time.
SUNDAY RILEY C.E.O Rapid Flash Brightening Serum
Why I love It – First of all, here is a rule of thumb. If you can remember wearing jellies sandals to school – it’s time to add in a C cream and a night cream to your routine. Dullness, Dark Spots, Discoloration? The alliteration blaster is here! These serums and creams come in all levels of potency of Vitamin C. Rapid Flash’s biggest ingredient is the THD Ascorbate which is a more lipid soluble, penetrating form of Vitamin C. This is the magic aid in the brightening, clarifying, and antioxidant properties. I like around a 15% level which is exactly what Rapid Flash has! It’s not a secret that the majority of us are experiencing our first signs of aging caused by stress, lifestyle, sun, and pollution. Treat yo self with your skin care!
Plus – who doesn’t love the power punch name of “C.E.O”? Gives me a little pizazz. Rubbing it into my face like hell yeah – this is gonna make me a better employee today. Girl power!
How to use it — Apply one to two pumps to clean skin, morning and night. If you’re using something else that refines like a Retinol or another Glycolic Acid – don’t use at the same time to avoid irritation. Try alternating days and consult your dermatologist.
Where to buy it – Sephora carries and is always in stock, though regrettably this one is going to be a bit of a dent in the ol’ wallet. (Coming in at $85). We’ve found the same price just about everywhere, and haven’t found it carried on Amazon quite yet. The reviews though, and the actual benefits – we haven’t been able to beat! There are absolutely other products from the Sunday Riley C.E.O. line on Amazon that we love. Don’t forget to check them out!
