Skincare routine

I never really had a skincare routine when I was growing up, but I certainly have one now that I am over 40! The years of sun damage is starting to show and I want to delay, or reverse, any additional wrinkles if I can! Of course it has to fit into my budget! And that is somewhat of a challenge for many people like me who want to look their best but not overspend, or in my case who cannot overspend!

A couple of years ago I started using Rodan and Fields. I love their products, but not the price tag or the commitment. And I found that some of the products were just too harsh on my skin. Since I like to try different products, and get bored easily with the same skincare routine and products I often find myself lingering the isles of Ulta and Sephora. Here are a few products I have found that I am currently loving!

Tula Probiotic Purifying Face Cleanser

I love this product for so many reasons! First, the scent is not over powering but very light and clean. Secondly, my skin feels great after using it. No stinging, burning or harsh feelings after using this! The most impressive? Tula is committed to clean and effective skincare! Their products don’t have any of the things you don’t want in them!

The Original Makeup Eraser

If I am being honest, I was super skeptical about this product. I purchased it at Christmas because we were staying at a VRBO property that had scary rules about not ruining their towels with makeup! Yes, I bought it out of fear – I wanted my deposit back! But I am here to tell you this product is fantastic! I have used it and washed it once a week since Christmas and it is still working fabulously! You simply wet it, rub your eyes (even waterproof mascara) and boom makeup is off your pretty face! No kidding! If you buy one thing, you should buy this! Treat yo self (sorry we just finished watching Parks & Rec…again)!

It Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream

I watched an instagram story of a blogger friend and she was using this cream from itCosmetics! I immediately researched it and liked what I found, so I thought I would give it a try. I was super impressed with this face cream! It has a light scent, and coverage that isn’t greasy so I was in love! Honestly I think my skin looks better after having used it for the past few months! A little bit goes a long way so you aren’t spending a ton each month! I am still in my first jar and purchased it almost four months ago!

That is it. Three simple products that I use daily for my skincare routine. I use the Tula in the morning and the other two at night. They don’t break my budget, I like the results I get from using them and I feel good about what I am putting on my skin. What isn’t to love about that? Try them out yourself and let me know what you think!
