I never thought I’d be one of those people who has a skincare routine. My face tends to reject any kind of skincare I try, so imagine how jazzed I was when I finally found some products that worked for me.
Now imagine my surprise when my skin told me that it’s time to switch up my routine. The day is here! Here are some of the new (to me) products that will be making up my spring 2018 skincare routine.
The first step in my evening skincare routine will be to clean off any excess makeup. I’ll be using the Lierac Double Cleanser Micellar Milk. It’s an anti-pollution makeup remover and provides micro-smoothing cleansing (not totally sure what those two terms mean…..but I guess I’ll find out).
My mask of choice will be the Korres Pomegranate Ahas & Enzymes Resurfacing Mask. It has pomegranate grains to gently exfoliate and peel away dead skin cells. And it smells kinda like Kool-Aid!
My next step after cleansing is toner. I’ll be trying the Elizabeth Grant Wonder Effect Toner. It’s made for oily, combination, acne-prone and pigmented skin. Yeah……put a check in all of those boxes for me.
The Lise Watier Sublimessence Nuit Regenerating Serum was first introduced to me at a Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty Boutique event. During the year I’ll alternate between serums from Estée Lauder and The Body Shop, but I just can’t say no to adding this luxurious-looking serum into my routine. And yes, those are indeed flower petals floating around in there!
I’m used to using an eye cream or balm, so I’m happy to switch it up and try the Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules. You just twist a capsule open and dab it with your fingertip, from the inner to the outer corner of your undereye.
The No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum is hypo-allergenic and is supposed to reduce deep lines and wrinkles. So you best believe that I’ll be applying this to my ever-growing smile lines each night.
This is another gem introduced to me at the Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty Boutique Event. That day the skincare expert assessed my skin and recommended the Biotherm Life Plankton Sensitive Balm. In fact, she couldn’t stop singing its praises. With my super-finicky skin, this creamy balm seems like a great choice. It’s gentle, it’s light and the applicator is really hygienic (you press and glide your finger on the long bubble and it pulls out enough product for one use – no chance for bacteria to grow in the jar from dipping your fingers).
As a little bonus, I’m also including what I’ll be wearing in the morning before I step outside this spring. I’ll be playing with the Marcelle City High Protection Urban Day Cream. Because a little SPF 30 never hurt anyone, right? Spring is when my freckles start poking out (before they come out full-force in the summer), so I need to do a little extra suncare.
I still can’t believe that I get to have a brand new skincare routine. There’s a first for everything right? Let me know what skincare you’re trying this spring.
