Current Anti-Aging Skincare Essentials

Now that we are a few months into 2018 and my skincare routine has changed a bit I thought I would share what I'm currently loving and why. I included anti-aging in the title because I am no spring chicken ( 33 years young) so I focus on products that plump, firm, and smooth my skin. My goal is to stay consistent with my regime and proactive with anti-aging products so I can keep this melanin popping for years to come, you know Angela Bassett style, lol.

So lets get into it shall we! Below are my current skin care essentials, I have listed them in the order they are used as well as how I use them.

Shiseido Starter Kit 

The wrinkle resist line from Shiseido has been my go to for the last few months, I found it in this starter kit from Sephora and thought I would try it out and I've been obsessed ever since. The kit comes with a creamy foaming face wash, a light weight face lotion with spf, an under eye cream, and an essence. Since first trying these products I have bought the full size in the eye cream and the face lotion. I have dry skin and these both work wonders for me, I have seen a huge improvement in my under eye area since using the eye cream. I used to struggle with really dry under eyes and my concealer would crease and get patchy, but not anymore. The kit comes with a light weight face lotion that I like to use in the summer and I also bought the regular face cream for winter and when my face needs a little extra moisture.

Pixi Glow Tonic

I love this product when I feel a blemish coming, I go straight for this and it calms down the irritating feeling of a pimple forming and helps clear it up. Like I said I have dry skin so I don't use this product everyday but when my skin needs something a little stronger to take away dirt or blemishes  I go straight for this!

Peter Thomas Roth Mask

This is my pamper product, its pricey but feels so good on the skin and leaves your face soft and hydrated. I also love that you don't have to wash it off or make a mess to enjoy it.

The Body Shop Oil

I have been into face oils for over a year now and this one has been the best I've found. It smells good and feels even better, I use this directly after washing my face and it nourishes my skin without feeling slippery and wet. I put my face cream on after my oil and the combination is magical!

Mario Badescu Rosewater

This is the most blogger like thing in my collection but I have to admit I love it! It's really refreshing and I love using it after I wash my face, if my make-up is feeling too heavy, or in the middle of the day when my face just feels dry and dull. The smell is also amazing and I'm addicted.
