So far this winter I’ve had some problematic skin: oily in my t-zone, extremely dry everywhere else, dullness, blemishes popping up all over the place… I think you get the idea. I browsed Ulta at the beginning of this month and picked up a few things that I thought might be helpful for this ‘rough patch’ I’m having, and so far it seems to be helping.
1. Get Your Glow On Mask $5.99: This is a radiance boosting skin mask that includes papaya to resurface skin, and citrus to help brighten your skin. Added bonus- it unclogs pores, helps banish breakouts, and sloughs off dead skin.
2. Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner $11.50: This is a “shake to activate” product that contains tea tree oil, lemon tea tree, and tamanu oil which all work together to fight off blemishes & blackheads, and control excess oil production.
3. Maybelline Dream Pure BB $8.99: I’ve written about the Dream Fresh BB before, and how much I love it. The difference between the two is the Dream Pure contains 2% Salicylic Acid to help fight off blemishes. The most important part, for me, is that it is also hydrates your skin while helping to heal it of acne/blemishes.
4. Malin+Goetz Mojito Lip Balm $12.00: I didn’t get this one at Ulta but I had to include it. This came in my January Ipsy bag, and I love it. This is truly the best balm I’ve ever used. I put this on once in the morning and once in the evening, and that is all I need to keep my lips feeling hydrated.
I of course have other products that I use in my skin care routine, but don’t want to bore you to tears. These were just some new purchases that I’ve been pleased with and thought I’d share. What are some new beauty products that you’re currently loving?
I wanted to let you all know that my contact page is now working. For a long while the page was up and seemed to function normally, but wouldn’t send me e-mails when people attempted to contact me, and I’m so sorry. That won’t be a problem in the future!
I also want to say a quick thank you to Karen at Makeup and Beauty Blog for featuring me as her MBB Reader of the Week!
