I STARTED JADE ROLLING AND IT’S CHANGED MY LIFE

Editor’s Note: My Jade roller looks frosty because I freeze it before use.

OK… so I finally bought a Jade roller, and it has not only changed my skin but has really helped with my anxiety as well.

I believe it was last year or even 2017 when there was major hype around Jade rolling. I mean everyone and their mom had bought a Jade roller and was raving about how it improved their skin, but I just couldn’t buy into the hype. I mean how could using this little rolling thing really clear your skin or even out your skin tone? It just didn’t make sense because all those AHAs and oils, and serums are supposed to do that, right?

MY MOST RECENT SKINCARE BUYS – FT. THE ORDINARY

If you’re looking for inexpensive skin care products that actually have the power to transform your skin, then The Ordinary is the girl you’re looking for.

I can’t remember when or how I was introduced to these products but I remember the first ones I bought were the 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rosehip Seed Oil and the Hyaluronic Acid 5% + B5. I have always dealt with some form of acne and hyper-pigmentation due to acne scarring, so after a lot of research, I settled on these two to help battle the issues I was having at the time.

I GOT RID OF 90% OF MY BEAUTY PRODUCTS, AND HERE’S WHY

I wish I would have taken a before and after picture.

Last week I got the urge to purge. Maybe the start of Spring put me in the mood to start Spring cleaning – if you know me well, you know cleaning really makes me happy – but last week I was ready to get rid of almost everything. My skin care drawer was a mess, I was looking through all of my makeup thinking, why do I have so much stuff. I try to be mindful when it comes to excess. There are certain things I really love, like shoes and skincare products and will always buy, but if it’s something I haven’t used or worn in a while, I try to give it away or toss it.

CURRENT MORNING ROUTINE

Lately I’ve been trying to adopt the “less is more” philosophy as well as the “use what works” philosophy – and it’s been working.

For some reason for the last few months it’s been really hard for me to get out of bed on time, and because skincare is important to me, I’ve been looking for a way to hop out of bed, use all the products I need and zoom out the door.

FEBRUARY SKINCARE BUYS

This post is a bit late, I know but I purchased some products at the end of February and was patiently waiting for them to arrive.

Some of the products I purchased are tried and true favs, others are some newbies that I’d been wanting to try and decided to jump on the bandwagon.

I’m going to try to keep this short (probably won’t lol), so let’s jump right in!

TONY MOLY BAMBOO FRESH WATER SOOTHING MIST

If there are two things you have picked up about me from reading this blog it should be 1. I love trying new products and 2. I’m a sucker for a good face mist!

A few months ago I was in Ulta and came across the Tony Moly Fresh Water Soothing Mist. As a lover of facial mists and soothing/hydrating products I couldn’t resist buying this. I’ve tried other Tony Moly products in the past, the most popular being the I’m Real sheet masks (which are just okay in my opinion) so I never thought to venture outside and hunt for more TM products, but I must say I was very impressed by this soothing mist.

According to the product details, this is a facial mist containing 94% DamYang Province Bamboo extract which is rich in minerals and amino acids which help hydrate and soothe the skin.
