SKIN ESSENCE: Your Skin’s New BFF

A few weeks ago, my skin and I were going through it bad! I was going through some career drama, which lead to stress and my skin showing the signs. So, I did what I usually do when my skin acts up; go back to the basics. I broke out my simple skincare routine and strayed away from strong ingredients. However, all of my night time moisturizers were too heavy and/or strong to use. Plus, since it’s starting to warm up, I know I didn’t want nor need anything to heavy. Enter, skin essences! Skin essences are low key a must-have for every skincare products collection, no matter your skin type. Plus the right skin essence can bring out the best in other skincare products you use.

ITEM OF THE WEEK: Witch Hazel and Rosewater Toner

I think I’ve said it here before, but if not, here it is again: I love toners! No matter how many times I’ve tried to act like toners weren’t important or not use them as much, I always go running back. I feel like I’ve tried no less than 100 toners in my lifetime. That’s not an exaggerating.

Not all of them were, but there have been some gems. So much so, I feel like I can tell a good one for me in less than 2 uses. However, within the first use of Mario Badescu’s new Witch Hazel and Rosewater toner, it only took one use. Keep reading about my new favorite toner. Plus, it has rosewater, which is one of my favorite skincare ingredients.

ICE ROLLER: The Beauty Tool I Didn’t Know I Needed

I’m totally one of those people that sees something oddly cool on social media and immediately adds to their Amazon cart. However, I think I only end up buying about 3.4% of those items. One of those products that made it to the finish line of my mailbox is an ice roller. What is an “ice roller”, you might be wondering. Truthfully, if I hadn’t seen someone use it, I would’ve thought the same thing.
