Elemis Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm: this is the most luxurious product I think I’ve ever used. It goes on as a nourishing, buttery balm and then melts into a rich cleansing oil when applied to clean, dry skin. It works to soften and smooth skin while removing impurities and makeup. It’s such a nice way to turn in to bed at the end of the day.
How to use: take a generous amount of product and rub hands together to active the balm. You’ll notice it’ll feel like it’s warming up — which means it’s time to apply, all over the face. Lately I’ve been using this balm as the oil for my gua sha facial massage, and it’s been UNREAL.
To remove, I like to run my face towel (comes with purchase) under hot water, then ring out the excess water before putting the towel right over my face letting the steam do it’s thing. Feels a little like a mini spa-treatment and leaves my skin feeling nourished and deeply conditioned with a noticeable glow.
Herbivore Orchid Facial Oil: this facial oil is packed with vitamins + fatty acids [like omega 3 & 6] to replenish hydration and protect against premature aging. Made with a blend of orchid extract, camellia flower oil and jasmine sambac oil, the lush exotic floral oils gives off a beautiful fragrance that smells like Hawaii.
Orchid Extract: Smoothes and conditions the look of skin, and acts as a powerful antioxidant.
Camellia Flower Oil: Supports skin’s natural elasticity and gives it a luminous glow.
Jasmine Sambac Oil: Moisturizes and supports natural elasticity.
+ formulated with no fillers
+ just effective natural ingredients
+ absorbs easily
+ contains moisture, vitamins, fatty acids, and antioxidants to nurture skin + supports skin’s natural lipid barrier to lock moisture in and protect against dryness
How to use: apply 10 drops to hands & rub together. Press hands right over face, pressing fingers into skin (rather than rubbing oil into skin). I prefer to use this oil at night following the Elemis Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm.
Wander Beauty Mist Connection Essence + Toner: this toner & essence gives off major spa day vibes, with a fresh light scent. It’s enriched with camellia japonica seed oil and niacinamide to help moisturize and soothe skin, while vitamin E helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for a more youthful-looking complexion.
+ mineral oil-free
+ synthetic fragrance-free
How to use: shake bottle to combine toner & essence. Mist directly over entire face working clockwise. Perfect on clean bare skin or works well as a makeup setting spray.
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask: by far the most luxurious lip treatment I have tried. This balm is (enriched with vitamin C and antioxidants) super conditioning & works best overnight to deliver smoother, more supple lips.
How to use: apply liberal to lips before bed & let it do it’s thing while you get your beauty sleep. Wake up to softer lips that feel incredibly hydrated.
H.A. Intensifier by Skinceuticals: I’m a huge fan of facial serums and oils and this one definitely (still) takes the cake when it comes to Hyaluronic Acid. I was first introduced to this products through my dermatologist at Project Skin & have been religiously using it ever since.
To put simply, it’s a multi-functional corrective serum to help amplify the skin’s hyaluronic acid levels. It contains a high concentration of pure hyaluronic acid, proxylane, and botanical extracts of licorice root and purple rice to support skin’s hyaluronic acid levels and deliver surface hydration, helping improve the visible appearance of firmness, smoothness, and facial plumpness.
I have not had any botox or fillers before and I credit this product for a lot of it (outside of having regular treatments, a healthy diet & a good skincare routine). I’ve always gotten amazing results and it really does help plump up the texture of the skin to appear more full and youthful. It’s one of the pricier products I buy, but IMO, worth every penny!
+ amplifies skin’s hyaluronic acid levels by 30%
+ reduces the look of crow’s feet & fine lines for smoother, firmer skin
+ delivers long lasting hydration to visibly improve skin’s texture
+ serum-gel texture creates a smooth canvas on skin (excellent for using gua sha or other beauty tools, to eliminate any tugging)
+ paraben & dye-free
+ ideal for all skin types
