Happy Friday everyone! We made it through another week! I decided to introduce a new series on Once Upon a Shopper called Friday Faves. Every few Fridays or so I will post some of my favorite things from a certain category. The categories will be anything from makeup to home decor to clothes of a certain color. I always love to share my favorite things, so I figured this would be a fun addition to this blog. I am also open to suggestions, so please feel free to comment and let me know what you want to read about.
For this week I want to talk skincare. I was thinking about some of my favorite products as of late, and realized they all have to do with skincare. I’ve actually always been pretty lazy with my skincare routine, and luckily have gotten away with it thus far. That said, I am clearly no expert – these are just some of my own personal tried and true products that I swear by.
BareMinerals Complexion Rescue. I am obsessed. I don’t wear face makeup, but sometimes want a little coverage and to even out my skin tone – this is the best. I use it as a foundation and touch it up with a tiny bit of highlighter on my cheeks and nose. I was applying it with my fingers at first, but then bought this brush which give it even more of an amazing, airbrushed finish. I highly, highly recommend this!
Clarisonic Mia 2. Having always been lazy with my skin routine, the thought of having to use an actual, timed instrument to wash my face was a little daunting at first. But it was so popular I felt I needed to have it. I made the splurge and purchased this a few years ago, and I love it. I use it a few times a week and I love the way it makes my skin feel.
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer. Ok, so prior to the Complexion Rescue I swore by this moisturizer. It gives amazing coverage while still being light on my face like a moisturizer. It really makes my skin look flawless. Since I bought the Complexion Rescue that has a slightly different feel and finish, I use that for my everyday and this tinted moisturizer for when I am getting a little more “done up.”
Philosophy products. Ok – I love, love, love Philosophy. Amazing Grace has always been my favorite daytime scent, but a couple of years ago I got roped into a consultation at the counter in Nordstrom (as I typically do). The next thing I knew I was buying the whole freakin’ skincare line! Well, it was worth it. The Hope in a Jar day and night creams are amazing. They’re basic, light, and just make my face feel so clean, moisturized and glowy. I had also never really exfoliated much before, but the Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash got me hooked. I urge everyone to try Philosophy skincare if you haven’t already!
Since I am not an expert in skincare and haven’t tried as many products as a lot of people, I’d love to know – what are your favorites?
