Morning Skincare Routine

I’ve been loving my skin lately and wanted to share my current go-to morning skincare routine with all of you. I’ve also found some cool new products I’m obsessed with at the moment. I also filmed a YouTube video showing you my morning skincare routine and how I apply the products, if you want to check it out.

My Morning Skincare Routine

1. Facial Wash: Fresh Soy Face Cleanser

I start my morning skincare routine with this gentle Fresh soy cleanser. It smells quite a bit like cucumber, so if that bothers you, beware. It does not foam very much but know it’s working without removing your natural oils too harshly. This is great for anyone who doesn’t like that stripped down feeling or if you have sensitive skin.

Lush Products You Need to Try

Lush is quite the special brand in that their products are 100% vegetarian, handmade, and don’t test on animals. They use natural fresh ingredients that work. I used to get a bit overwhelmed with all of the options but have since then found some Lush product gems I think everyone needs to add to their skincare and beauty buckets!

If you’re ready to get glowing baby soft skin, you need to give this one a try! Dark Angels is a black sugar and charcoal body and face scrub with Moroccan lava clay. What I love

about this scrub is that it’s tailored towards sensitive oily skin, so it definitely exfoliates, but in a gentle way. Plus, it helps with redness and the oils really help to not dry out skin.

I typically apply it once or twice a week on my face in the shower to maintain soft skin. When I’m feeling extra I’ll extend it to my neck, decolletage, and hands. I make sure to never miss my lips as it will do wonders for any chapped skin you might have.

Here are my November Favorites which include some amazing new finds and the things I’m currently obsessing over!

One of my favorite brand discoveries this year is LANEIGE 100%! Their products just work.  Bonus: They don’t test on animals and don’t have any of the bad stuff, like parabens, in their products. I found the Lip Sleeping Mask during one of my Sephora app shopping sprees during the Black Friday sales. If you want soft lips, or live somewhere cold or dry where chapped lips are a thing you are forced to deal with no matter how much of anything you put on them, you need this in your life.
