My creative process can get a little tapped out at the end of the year with all the craziness that goes on. Yet there's still that nudge that wants to write about SOMETHING on my blog. Today I'm gonna do something a little different and write about skincare which I don't think I've done since I wrote my Lush review.
My face sucks! I have super annoying skin where it gets dry in the Winter and oily in the Summer with some blotchiness around my cheekbones. I don't wear a lot of make-up so I neglected taking care of my face for a long time other than splashing some water on it and using random soap.
As I get older, I get more self-conscious about my appearance and showing my age. We all want to look youthful and healthy, not weathered and tired. For a few years I've been trying to figure out what works for me, tried a lot of stuff that I wasn't happy with. I need instant gratification and I think I found it.
I've heard nothing but good things about Kiehl's products but let's face it, it can be a little pricy and if I can't grab it at CVS, I might pass it over. That was my attitude before but sometimes it's worth paying a little extra for the GOOD stuff. Kiehl's Blue Herbal Gel Cleanser is on point! You feel the cleaner working as soon as you apply it without that burning feeling and leaves my skin feeling fresh and new once I rinse it off. I need to check out their Toner some time. But in the meantime, the cleanser is enough as long as I follow up with moisturizer.
I learned about Simple Hydrating Light Moisturizer through my previous job. We would get free samples so I grabbed a bunch before I left. When they say "Light" they mean it. I don't like that greasy feeling afterward especially if you're in a rush and you need to get the makeup on quick or if you're getting ready for bed. It has no dyes or perfumes. I also have their Night Cream which I sometimes forget to use.
I've been using both for a couple of weeks and already see and feel a difference with my face and I couldn't be happier. Do you have a good cocktail of product you use for your face?
