I’m pretty loyal to skincare and make-up products but I’ve been using a few newer items that I’ve had some success with. Some of them are from Japan, some of them are from America, some from the UK. When it comes to skincare, I do also love trying out new products. I’ve seen a lot of people I follow online and on YouTube incorporate CBD & skincare, as it is in demand right now. Additionally, I’ve come across so many brands that I’ve never heard of before, but I have a feeling that a lot of them are promising. There’s sites like AbodyCandle.com that I still need to check out, but from what I’ve heard from others, I am very hopeful. This is why I love skincare because some things that work for some people, don’t work for others. This means that skin care is so personalized to you as an individual, you have to find products that actually work for you. For example, one of my friends recently told me about using cbd skin care products, apparently it helps with anti-aging, and she finds it works for her skin. There’s so much to skincare and there’s always something new to try. Finding products that you love is so difficult to do nowadays, especially with new products coming out daily!
But here are my most recent beauty and skincare buys.
Eden Bodyworks All Natural Cleansing CoWash – This moisturizing cowash comes in handy on week nights when doing a lengthy wash/deep conditioning treatment will simply take too long. This effective cowash cleanses my hair well and has a nice light scent.
RMS Master Mixer – Adding a subtle blow to your face is key year-round but particularly during the winter months. I’m not big on wearing a lot of make-up on most days (my make-up routine takes no more than 5 min). But this RMS Master Mixer adds a minor touch to my eyelids or anywhere else I want to highlight.
Jade Facial Roller – Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been trying the ancient Chinese tradition of jade rolling. It’s purported to have various benefits but I haven’t been doing it long enough to observe any changes yet. But I do like beauty rituals, so I’ll keep using it.
Glossier Boy Brow – This brow tamer puts my brows in place particularly when I am between brow threading appointments and my brows are thicker than usual.
The Lip Bar Matte Liquid Lipstick in Bawse Lady – This was actually a gift from my Mom, but I like it so much, I’ve included it. I’d gotten out of the habit of wearing lipstick on a regular basis, but I like this deep red color so much, I’ve started wearing it regularly. I can’t wait to try other shades from this brand.
The Takesumi Detox Deodorant – I’ve been using natural deodorants since last summer and have found quite a few effective ones but this is just the latest in the rotation. This was actually a small sample version, so time will tell if I repurchase. Btw, I love this deodorant but it’s pretty pricey to buy on a regular basis.
