No Makeup Monday: Skincare

I made the decision shortly after Cash was born that I was going to start taking better care of my skin. I am now barely wearing makeup, maybe a couple days a week if that and it became evident my skin needed a bit more love and care if I was going to age gracefully 😉 Im coming up to my last year in my twenty’s (yikes)!!

I set out to find a natural, plant based skincare that was Vegan, did not test on animals and would not break the bank. This is where I started and ended up reconnecting with The Body Shop. I truthfully have not shopped at the Body Shop since high school but was really surprised at the quality of product and the range of products they offer.

I knew for skincare I wanted to find a cleanser, moisturizer and something additionally to help revitalize my skin. I decided on the Vitamin E Gentle Facial Wash (literally so creamy and so soft!)  I wanted something I could use everyday that would not irritate or dry out my skin, that I could use throughout the year regardless of season and I have to say I absolutely love this cleanser!!

Next up is the moisturizer! I wanted a mattifying moisturizer to help with reducing oil/breakouts on my skin so I decided to go with the Seaweed Oil-Control Mattifying Gel Day Cream. It has a creamy gel consistency and applies great however I have to admit I love it, it does its job well but I needed more moisture so on my next purchase I will be going with the Vitamin E Moisture Cream.

Lastly I wanted to add an extra pop and decided the Drops of Youth Serum would be it after reading all of their amazing reviews. I lovvve this product, one drop in the morning and one at night it glides over your skin to help boost the surface skin cell renewal!

For masks, I decided on these two, the Chinese Ginseng and Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask and the British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask. Two masks, two totally different purposes which is what I wanted. I use each mask once a week and because I still tend to break out every once and a while so I wanted an exfoliating, clarifying mask to help with my breaks out and the plumping mask to help enrich moisture back into my skin for a more youthful and brighter glow.

I already have my eyes out for my next trip to the Body Shop and plan to include the Camomile Gentle Makeup RemoverCoconut Body Milk Lotion and the Almond Milk & Honey Calming Bath Milk!

Overall I am absolutely ecstatic with my purchases minus the one change to a Vitamin E moisture cream for added hydration. I have already noticed the quality of my skin has improved, its smoother, more even and definitely more hydrated. I highly recommend you go to your local Body Shop and check out all of their amazing products as there is sure to be a winning combination. Lastly their pricing is so reasonable, as a mom on maternity leave I do not have hundreds of dollars to spend that being said I wanted a quality product and found it at the Body Shop!

Hope you have a great week!
