Because I love these three products so much I used them to the last drop…
My Latest Skincare Empties
With quarantine being in full effect since March, I’ve had a LOT of time to really get through all my skincare products, and especially the ones that I tried once and instantly liked. Here are three of my cult-favorites…I promise you will also love these to the last drop!
I’ve talked about my love for all things Sunday Riley before and this facial moisturizer is LEGIT. First off, it smells like heaven (yes, kinda like ice cream), and second it has a La Mer-like consistency and texture where you just feel like your face is getting pampered AF when you put it on. The actual ingredients strengthen the natural moisture barrier of your skin against environmental stressors, giving you plump-looking, baby-soft skin. This baby is my go-to recommendation for anyone who wants a gentle moisturizer that actually works. Oh, and I should also mention that a little goes a long way here so that $65 spend will last you awhile.
I’ve also been a long-time Lord Jones CBD fan and their Body Balm is my latest fave for any aches and pains that I get. The balm is made with just seven ingredients, including 200mg of CBD (!), extra virgin olive oil, and shea butter, designed to soothe pain and deeply moisturize the skin. That said, it’s not just good for muscle aches; it also works for general skin dryness, redness and uneven texture. The balm transforms from a solid to an oil on contact and really just feels therapeutic.
Sunday Riley Good Genes ($122)
I reviewed Good Genes awhile back HERE (newsflash: it IS worth the money). This all-in-one AHA treatment, powered by lactic acid, clarifies, smooths, and re-texturizes your face. Good Genes is clinically proven to plump the look of fine lines and wrinkles in as few as three minutes (yes, basically a facial in three minutes).
Formulated with high potency, purified grade lactic acid, it exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin and, believe me when I tell you, your skin will literally GLOW after using this stuff. That said, if you have sensitive skin like me, I definitely recommend using this stuff as a “mask” at first and see how your skin reacts. Basically you apply this and just wash it off after 15/2o minutes instead of leaving it on.
