I honestly have been in desperate need of a new skincare regimen. Call me crazy, but I feel like my skin tends to get used to a product after I use it for a good while, especially my cleansers, and gets immune to them! I am no aesthetician or skincare specialist so I could just be paranoid, but after months of having super clear skin, and my skin starts acting up, I must just use it as an excuse to splurge on some new skincare.
I've always said that if there was anything worth investing in … it's your face.
These lovely new arrivals made it home with me from Sephora yesterday, so I haven't been with them for very long so I will have to update you on how I really get along with them sometime later.
+ Clinique "Take The Day Off" Cleansing Balm (3.8 oz) - $28.50
I am new to cleansing balms, but I don't think I will ever be going back. The product melts like butter into your fingers and turns to a super moisturizing oil on your skin. To be honest I thought I might wake up the next morning with a full face of acne, but, I'm clear! Using it the second time, I have to say the consistency is wonderful. This particular one is unscented and I had no burning sensation when I migrated it into my eye area. My favorite part? No drying, tightening feeling after you remove it with a warm washcloth.
+ Origins "Make A Difference Plus +" Rejuvenating Treatment (1.7 oz) - $39.50
Jumping in a huge pool of oil (unless its cleansing balm) would still leave my skin insanely dry, so I am a tough judge when it comes to moisturizers. This one has a gel consistency, my favorite because of the glow it leaves your skin after application, and smells like the garden of Eden. A little seems to go a long way and I noticed that it works great under your makeup. Warning … do not get this stuff super close your eyes. Unless you love a burning sensation and watery eyes for hours.
After 1 night & 1 morning application, my skin is loving these new arrivals.
