^^My usual routine
How is it still so cold out? But really, I need a break, and so does my skin. I am hopeful that it’s ending soon, so I’ve started thinking ahead to my spring skincare routine. While I usually keep a few core products in my rotation, I tend to switch out some of the heavier creams and serums that I’ve been using all winter for a few “lighter” products. I tried a ton of new products this winter, and I’m happy to report of that some of them can be carried over to spring.
Legendary Apothecary Smooth Feet ($35.00)
The feet need some love too, especially in the winter! I’ve been using this 1-2 times a week and I LOVE the smell, i. It’s an oil-like consistency but it actually absorbs really fast. The best part is that the product is organic, hand made in Los Angeles, and the company donates 10% of its proceeds toward like-minded charities. I’ve used it a bunch and I still have more than half of it left somehow, so I guess a little bit goes far!
I picked this up at an indie beauty event last year, but I started using it recently. When I visited the website and actually learned about the brand, I was blown away! They employ women who have survived trafficking, prostitution, and addiction, so every purchase is directly helping them. It’s also all-natural and eco friendly which is a plus. It smells like a light lavender, and I put it on my wrists before bed. I think the aromatherapy actually helps to relax me, so I’m a fan.
I know I’m like the last person to get this Amazon Ice Roller but wow it’s awesome! I’m always puffy so I needed this most of all. I don’t have a new face when I use it but i do think it de-puffs me, especially around the cheeks. Is it long lasting? Not sure. But it feels good in the morning when I’m half asleep. It sits in my freezer 24/7 until I feel the need to use it.
