As a follow up to my “What’s in My Purse” post, I thought I’d share what’s on my counter. I don’t use all these items at the same time, but they are each in my current rotation either in the morning or night.
In an effort to bring more clean beauty products to the store, I am testing different ones all the time. So far, I am really liking the Indie Lee products I’ve tried. If I keep reaching for them a week from now, they may end up in store soon.
This is still my choice for a first pass at removing eye makeup. I love this little cloth.
When I see little flakes and I am tempted to use a physical exfoliator, I grab for this cream and use it where needed. It removes all the flakes and leaves smooth skin behind.
Every morning this is the last thing I put on before my makeup. I like a sheer sunscreen and even though I jump around, somehow I always go back to this one.
These are my go-to pads when I really feel like my skin is looking dull: 30 days on and 30 days off.
What can I say? As I’ve previously written about…I’m having a bit of a love affair at the moment with Zelens products. My skin seems to be really happy as a result, so for now…this is my jam.
The last thing I put on before bed every night. This serum hydrates and always makes me wake up looking better than when I went to sleep.
I try everything before I bring it in and if I keep using it regularly, it’s a good sign I’ll be ordering it for the store. I’ve been using a few of the Emma Hardie products consistently. You’ll likely see them show up in store soon, as well.
I am periodically guilty of letting my products run too low and then I desperately root around for samples. This happens to be one such occasion. Hence, the teeny tiny bottles.
Thick and creamy, it stays put all night and hydrates during cold winter days.
I can’t give up coffee and red wine, so I can’t give up Supersmile.
