My Skincare Essentials + a Sneak Peek at My New Office!

Vanity

Skincare is so important–even more important now than it was to me a few years ago. Now that I’m 30, I do my best to take care of my skin and to keep a steady and effective routine to keep it looking youthful and vibrant.Skincare routine

Over the years, I’ve sort of accumulated a list of favorite products that I keep going back to. So without further ado, here is the comprehensive list of my daily skincare/prep products!

Clarisonic Mia Fit

With two removable heads (each suited for a separate function), this mini version of the original cleanser does the same job (but way cuter). I love to cleanse with this scrubber 3 times a week for a really deep clean.

Paula’s Choice Resist Advanced Replenishing Toner 

This product is fantastic and works to cleanse/tone my skin after a facial wash. It tightens the skin and in my opnion, makes it look a little more even.

Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid 

This product works with the toner to create radiant and even more toned skin while reducing redness and unclogging pores. I swear by this stuff–been using it for about 4 years now! It also helps with wrinkles and acne!

Evian natural mineral water facial spray

I use this as a quick pick me up when my skin needs refreshing in Florida’s heat!

Lancome La Base Pro pore eraser 

This oil-free primer smoothes my skin and hides my pores prior to putting on makeup. It’s the best primer I’ve found and have been using it for a little over a year now.

Sonia Roselli water balm skin prep

This is my secret skin weapon! I found out about this stuff through my wedding makeup artist and friend Ashley (check out her site!). She used this prior to putting on mine and my bridal party’s makeup on my wedding day and I fell in love. It seriously is the most refreshing and plumping (see: lines) moisturizer I’ve ever put on my face. It is creamy but not thick and isn’t sticky at all. I seriously can’t say enough good things about this product. This is like the Holy Grail of day/nighttime moisturizers.

Lancome Advanced Genifique

This product is one that I use once a week for a quick skin-tightening boost. It’s cooling and effective in a pinch!

Puffs Plus Lotion tissues

These are the softest tissues and I love having them around for skin prep and makeup application. Bonus: Nate and I get them from Sam’s Club in the ten pack so we can put them all over the house from the living room to guest rooms (we always have company!). It’s perfect for prepping for the upcoming cold and allergy season because I love how soft they are. Nothing’s worse than having rough and scratchy tissues when you’re sick (and they’re America’s #1 lotion tissue and is dermatologist tested to be gentle on sensitive skin)!

P.S.–they’re running an awesome giveaway right now: 1) $250 to GET and (1) $250 to GIVE

New Office decor

We pretty much used everything from IKEA to complete my office (a big shoutout to Dad and Nate for putting it all together!) and I was really pleased with how it turned out! There’s still a lot of work to be done, but it’s coming together quite nicely so far. P.S.–how cute is this painting by Emilka at Emilka.co?! Love the watercolor!

Shoe Display

Shoes are one of my vices, and so naturally I had to find a really cute (and semi-cheap) way in which to display them. Enter IKEA’s bookshelves–at $25 a pop–a perfect solution!

Can’t wait to share the rest of the office with you guys once it’s done & let me know what your favorite skincare products are! I’m always willing to try new things! 🙂
