Hi WEBabes! It's October 2nd (...what?!), and I realized it was about that time for some new skincare products to share with you all.
...I recently got a new memory foam topper, which has made my bed a fluffy cloud of bliss. While this has been the best addition to my REM cycles ever, I have been sleeping extra hard, resulting in me looking a bit groggy in the morning. Not ideal.
Thus, I headed to Nordstrom to browse the skincare products to help reduce that 'tired look.' I decided to go with the Keihl's Eye Alert (which is technically for men but really, who cares, women can use it too). It focuses on the reducing puffiness, those pesky fine lines, and dark circles.
So far, I've been loving it and it really does what it says. My dark circles and puffiness has diminished, and my eyes feel brighter and more awake. There hasn't been a huge change in my fine lines (yet). I'll get back to you in a month or so, that stuff takes time ;). The key is using it twice a day, once in the morning and before bed after cleansing. It's the perfect pair with my Keihl's Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash. Now I can really enjoy my cloud of a bed without worrying about puffiness. Later, sleepy eyes.
To bring my eyes to next level, I decided to grab a new concealer as well. I purchased the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, and oh my I am in love. I would say it is around medium coverage, and lasts all day without getting into the pores or fine lines of the skin. I also use it to highlight my nose before finishing with a light mineral powder. If you are looking for a new concealer, I highly recommend.
With concealer comes my most favorite product out of the three: the Laura Mercier Baked Blush Bronze. It is the perfect balance between blush and bronzer, and looks so natural! Most bronzers I have used in the past have had that odd brown color that doesn't match the skin well. This does the complete opposite. It highlights my cheek bones effortlessly, and gives them a natural tint matching the true color of my skin. It is perfect for those days when I don't feel like wearing makeup, but want to add just a bit to make my face feel fresh and bright. It pairs perfectly with my Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint for that 'no makeup' dewy look. I can go on and on out this bronzer + blush duo. It seriously rocks and think you'll love it as much as I do!
Which beauty products did you babes get for the new month?
Happy fall and happy skin to you all!
