Morning Skincare Routine |Spring 2018

Hello! I hope you all are having a great day today!

I have been obsessing over skincare the last couple of months, whether its products or routines, I’m all over it! I don’t know whether it has anything to do with my age, because I’ve noticed that the majority of people in their early 20s tend to start making/creating their own skincare routines. When I was in high school and even in my early college years I did not care what so ever about skincare! I would even sleep with my makeup on most of the times, which is so BAD!

Today, I am going to show you my favorite products that I have been using/obsessed with these last couple of weeks. I am always adding/removing products from my routine, but at this moment these are the current products I am in love with!

Now this is my morning skincare routine. I do have a night time skincare routine, but we will save that for another day. Lol.

I have been consistent with this routine and my skin has never looked better, so let’s begin!

Foaming Face Wash from Clarity Therapeutics

Every morning, I begin by using this foaming face wash by Clarity Therapeutics. I only use this on my face and no where near my eyes! I only use two pumps, because a little does go a long way with this product!

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes

Next, I use my favorite makeup remover wipes of all time! These are so amazing and I swear by these wipes! They are a little pricey, but what I like to do in order to not waste or spend so much money is to cut my wipes into one thirds, since I don’t need a whole makeup wipe. I mostly use these around my eyes, but I will make sure to run it through my whole face just to make sure I got all the dirt and junk off!

Neutrogena Age Shield Face Sunscreen SPF 110

I then use another Neutrogena product that I have been obsessed with (I have to thank my aunt for introducing  me to this product!). This is their Age Shield Face sunscreen with SPF 110. Now I did spend a pretty penny on this item, I am not going to lie, but a little does go a long way with this product. Not to mention the sun is known to cause wrinkles and make you look older, and if I have to pay extra to avoid that you bet your butt I will. LOL. When I apply this I make sure to completely cover my face and neck with it! Not to mention, I LOVE the way this product smells, reminds me of summer!

Aveeno’s Daily Moisturizing Lotion & Total Moisture Facial Cream from Benefit Cosmetics

I tend to get dry around my chin and mouth area, I have no idea why so I make sure to apply a little of either the Total Moisture Facial Cream form Benefit Cosmetics or Aveeno’s Daily Moisturizing Lotion.

I have been loving both, so that is why I decided to add both of these. I couldn’t choose! Lol. They both do a great job of moisturizing and hydrating my skin!

Face Toner from Clarity Therapeutics

The last item I have been loving for my face is this face toner from Clarity Therapeutics. I know toners are meant to be used right after you cleanse your skin, but this toner make a great makeup primer! I have been using this right before I apply my makeup and I just love it so much! It does a really good job of keeping my makeup on.

Lip Conditioner from MAC

Lastly, for my lips I have been using this lip conditioner from MAC. It leaves my lips feeling so nice and soft! It also gives your lips a shine, kind of like wearing lip gloss!

That is it for my morning skincare routine! I hope you enjoyed reading! I would love to know any products that you are currently using or have been obsessed with. I love trying  out new products, so let me know what items you love so I can try them out!

I would also like to say thank you for 70 subscribers/follows on my blog! I am so appreciative of every single one of you!

As always thank you so much for reading and I hope you have a great week!

Product Review: Zinc Oxide Sunscreen & Organic Lip Balm from Bee You Organics

Hello! I hope everyone is having a great day today and making it a good one!

Lately I have been so obsessed with my skincare products being all-natural. Aside from that I have also been using/obsessed with sunscreen! Every morning, whether I am out in the sun or not, I make sure to apply a layer of sunscreen. Specifically this sunscreen, which contains zinc oxide. This product is from Bee You Organics. They have a variety of natural skincare products and makeup, from natural eyeshadows as well as mascara!

This product is handmade and ingredients include:

-Organic unrefined coconut oil

-Organic sweet almond oil

-Organic beeswax

-Organic unrefined shea butter

-Non nano zinc oxide

-Organic lavender EO

-Organic tea tree EO

The zinc oxide in their sunscreen is stable in sunlight and is shown to provide better coverage from those harsh UVA rays! This sunscreen will hydrate and moisturize your skin while providing sun protection! The best part of about this item is that it is made without all those horrible chemicals!  It is made without GMO’s, fillers, dyes, etc.

This past Easter weekend I spent the majority of time outdoors, and I used this product so much that I am actually running low! Lol. I highly recommend this item. It gave me that sun protection I needed while leaving my skin feeling so hydrated and moisturized. The sun can be so damaging and it is even known to create wrinkles and fasten your appearance of aging.

This item can be purchased from Bee You Organics for $16.99!

They have three different sizes options, which I believe are the perfect size to have in your handbag or backpack for any sun-based activities you may find yourself in.

2 oz Zinc Oxide Sunscreen $11.99

4 oz Zinc Oxide Sunscreen $16.99

8 oz Zinc Oxide Sunscreen $24.99

They also offer a vegan option for all the vegans out there! Rather than using beeswax they use organic carnauba wax!

I also received their organic lip balm. This lip balm will help moisturize, hydrate and even has built in sun protection. They have three options for flavors: lavender, peppermint, and unscented. I received the peppermint flavor and I love how it gives my lips that minty/freshness feeling! This lip balm will moisturize your lips for 24 hours and leave your lips feeling silky soft/smooth! They also offer the vegan option just like their zinc oxide sunscreen!

Bee You Organics can also customize labels for weddings, shops, baby showers, etc. How awesome is that!?

This organic lip balm can be purchased for the affordable price of $2.99! Super worth it if you ask me! Why would you not want silky/smooth lips?!

As always thank you so much for reading! I will leave a link down below so you can check out all of the products Bee You Organics offers.

Have a great week!
