It's My (Skincare) in a Box

Wednesday, February 7, 2018

A skincare routine? In a box? Did Sephora just blow your mind? Did I just make your life easier with this post? Well, I hope it does. 

In honor of a new year and Sephora’s promise to help you achieve new, perfect skin, they released three skincare routine boxes covering the three skin types: Combination (which is sold out on now!), Dry, and Normal. Now these can be a little flexible depending on your skin and other contributing factors. I went for the Combination box, which is full of products I’ve used before and love.

Everything is the perfect sample size but I’ll probably tuck some away for travelling so I can leave my full size products at home.

I'm the One: A Micellar Water Guide

Friday, February 2, 2018

Prepare yourself as I try to sound super scientific when science is definitely not my strength and never will be. Micellar waters still baffle minds in terms of what they really are and how they work. According to Garnier, they claim micelles act like magnets to cleanse all traces of dirt, makeup and other impurities from the skin. In my not so scientific opinion, I would assume micelles are little molecules suspended in a water solution that attract dirt particles and reveal clean, soft skin. Wow, someone get me a PhD so I can add ‘Doctor’ to my name. 

I like using micellar waters as the first step in my double cleanse, especially on my eyes. For my first step I’ve been alternating between a Lancome Honey cleanser, Origins Original Skin Jelly, or Soap & Glory cleansing milk. But none of these need to go near my eyes so I opt for a micellar water to take off the five pounds of mascara that I love to wear like, every day. But if you don’t wear as much makeup as me and prefer a simplified makeup remover, have no fear, your perfect micellar water is here!
