kiehls ultra facial cream intense hydration

dry skin moisturizers

It’s pretty glutinous to say this but lately I haven’t been able to pick one moisturizer to stick with and this list was settled two weeks ago before two more tubs were added to the rotation. Hey! It hasn’t done me any damage yet so I’m rollin’ with the punches. View Post

{Home time beauty routine}

It a brief conversation between girlfriends it became apparent that my “just got home from work” rituals aren’t the norm — am I really the only one? Throw my bag down, get in to my PJs and take my make up off. Whether its 6pm or 10pm…

This week I’m crazy about these new (some old) pieces of my routine. After a wonderful sleepover with Philosophy I was introduced to a few beautifying finds and reunited with step one of my ‘just-got-home’ routine — my Purity Made Simple wipes! The best wipes around, period. They get pretty much all my make up off and tone my skin in one.

{New additions}

You know I love playing with skincare. Introducing Chanel’s Cleansing Water and Philosophy’s Eye Hope. First Impressions after two days of testing? Love the scents and textures. I use the water to get off any left over eye make up and tapping on some Eye Hope to help rid me of my dark circles.

{New moisturizer}

Reaping the benefits of intense moisture I’m also testing out Philosophy’s Hope in a Jar Night and Vichy’s new formula of Aqualia Thermal. I already loved the scent of the original version and luckily this is the same. Stay tuned for more on this and what makes it so great…

{Dark favourites}

Thanks to Philosophy I get good skin and get to rock these comfy PJs from Victoria’s Secret. My boyfriend thinks they’re sexy. Even though they cover almost every inch of my skin. Maybe that’s a score. Maybe he’s trying to tell me something…

{Final spritz}

Finishing the lounge routine with a spritz of Amazing Grace. What a fragrance. Floral blossoms and soft musk – this scent couldn’t get any cleaner and more feminine if it tried. It’s so fresh it’s almost seductive — in a pure and pretty way.

{Collection of 12}

I know it’s not skincare sunday but I had to share the skincare routine that I’ve settled in to with you. Some of these beauties are repeat guests and others have recently made a comfortable spot in my routine. Either way, these products are so good I find I’m using them daily and my skin has honestly never been better.

daytime luxury skincare routine

{Daytime must-haves}

Philosophy Purity Cleanser – the creamy, staple cleanser that doesn’t strip my skin

Dr Renaud CC Eye Cream – featuring brightening pigments and de-puffing properties for instant results.

Pure and Simple Skin Drink – Simple, unscented and hydrating. I love this for days I feel like my skin is feeling sensitive.

Fresh Rose Floral Toner – Easy, one step spritz to tone and hydrate. Allowing my skin to soak up my serum with ease.

Shiseido Ibuki Refining Moisturizer Enriched – On days that are frigidly cold and I need a thicker barrier of moisture

Philosophy Hope in a Jar – My everyday moisturizer. It melts like butter and feels soooo lightweight. If it’s good enough for Oprah it’s good enough for me.

Dr Renaud UV Science, SPf 30 – Everyday is a sunscreen day. It’s the number one way to protect your skin from premature aging and developing large dark spots. This formula is buttery and whilst it feels thick at first it settles in perfectly after a few minutes.

The Body Shop Chamomile Cleansing Butter – It’s exactly that, a heavenly scented golden butter that melts as you work it in to your skin to remove your makeup.

{Nighttime must-haves}

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye – this night cream for the eyes works magic on my dehydrated peepers – whenever I use it they’re always a little less puffy than they usually are.

Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Tonic – my favourite toner of all time. Still after almost a year! The silkiest prepping product I’ve used to date. My skin drinks it up!

Philosophy Time in a Bottle – My first anti-aging serum that I’ve been using religiously for the past few weeks and it really is buffing out the fine lines I noticed on my forehead before Christmas! The addiction of the concentrated vitamin C means I’m left with skin that’s naturally radiant.

Philosophy Miracle Worker Overnight – This tub of joy really is a miracle worker. I wake with plump, hydrated skin. Another anti-aging number that’s become a favourite in my routine. I haven’t been this attached to a night cream in a while!

{Speciality}

Philosophy Purity Wipes – the best make up removing, skin cleansing, toning wipes of all time, period.

Fresh Creme Ancienne Honey Mask – As a fairly recent graduate I can’t justify buying this product. Ever. It’s $150. But let me tell you that when I’m a boss lady I’ll be investing in this bad boy a couple of times a year. It’s like a luxury facial in a tub and feels ten times more blissful than any treatment I’ve had.

Shu Uemura Ultime 8 Cleansing Oil – Mika for Shu – no cleansing oil has come close. This product melts the make up off and nourishes every millimetre of it as it works. Bonus? Check out the gorgeous new bottle design for Spring 2014. A collaboration with Japanese photograher, Mika Ninagawa and available in April.
