this was originally an instagram post, but i thought it would be better as a quick bonus blog post instead. so, this is tonight’s skincare routine, as well as what my routine is going to look like for a while thanks to some killer new products (excluding the mask, which is just a once a week treat these days)…
🌿wash: mix of stark skincare aurora cleansing balm & glossier milky jelly cleanser // i emulsified the balm in my hands and then added a pump of mjc. these mix beautifully to offer a moisturizing cleanse that is easily rinsed off with warm water.
🌿mask: milk makeup x urban outfitters urban defense mask // you all know i love this for a quick (3-5 minute) boost.
🌿spray: evan healy lavender hydrosoul // always!
🌿serum: previse nutrify 1-6 hyaluronic acid serum // i ordered this through the beauty heroes shop to replace my deciem hylamide low molecular ha serum – this is thinner in viscosity but feels the same on the skin and is a nice, quite basic serum.
🌿oils: indie lee squalane & stark skincare midnight regenerating // i picked up the indie lee oil this week in california during the anthropologie 20% off sale. i’ve been researching squalane for a while and was so pumped to actually test this in person. it’s a lightweight, extremely moisturizing oil that my skin is completely drinking up. the stark mr is exactly what it says, a nighttime oil that works to repair and nourish the skin. these work in combination beautifully.
🌿eyes: living libations all seeing eye cream // i’ve been using this for a few weeks now and am really enjoying it. i haven’t seen immediate effects, but i also wasn’t expecting to. very hydrating and i like knowing i have a specific product for my eyes now.
please note: this is a lot of skincare, especially for me. but through some extensive research and trial, this is what my skin needs and wants. as far as the stark skincare items – i have completely fallen in love with jess via her youtube channel, and her products are just as amazing as she is. seriously, i have been getting a full on education about green beauty and skincare (and skincare in general) and just love her.
