When it comes to skincare, I love trying new things but my skin can be sensitive so I have to be careful when using new products. I have started to notice a pattern for what works for me and what doesn’t though, so that definitely helps me avoid a lot of bad skin moments. I love anything that brightens skin and helps with anti-aging and DMAE is one of my favorite ingredients. That’s why I was so excited to try the Jan Marini C-Esta Face Serum. This serum is packed with antioxidants, Vitamin C, and DMAE and works to firm, lift, and tighten skin. Sounds like a winner to me!
I have so much fun with skincare. Masks, serums, creams- I love the process of applying them and really taking care of my skin. I love having mini spa nights and seeing how different products make a big difference in my skin. I hate to say it, but pretty much all of my pampering involves my face. Skincare for hands is definitely something I need to work on, especially since no matter how great and young my face looks, if my hands look rough I won’t be fooling anyone. I recently got the chance to try the Exuviance Age Reverse Hand Rejuvenator– a two-piece set that works to diminish signs of aging on hands. I was pretty excited since a hand peel is much for fun to use than just a normal hand cream. Who knows, it might even get me interested in taking care of my hands.
I have to admit, I’ve never been a fan of dry shampoo. I love the idea (who wouldn’t want to extend their hairstyle?) but I’ve never found one that I liked. They always seem to have an overbearing, artificial scent and for a product that’s supposed to make my hair look cleaner, I’ve always found it to be the opposite. I was a bit hesitant to try the HASK Dry Shampoo but I’ve had so much luck with HASK’s hair products in the past that I decided to try it. I’m so happy I did because this has completely changed my opinion of dry shampoos.
I used a lot of different beauty products in April. I played around with several of my older eyeshadow palettes and I’m still trying to finish a bunch of partly used foundations. Despite that, I still ended up with three products that really stood out over the course of the month. Two were new to me and one was an older product I love in a brand new scent. My April beauty favorites ended up being the Rimmel You’re the 1 Lipstick in You’re All Mine, the YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer, and the Alchemic Muse Foaming Body Scrub in Castaway.
HASK recently released a new collection and I couldn’t wait to try it. HASK has quickly become one of my favorite hair brands and I love trying all of the different varieties they offer. The new HASK Exotic Oil line contains three different collections, all catered to specific hair types. The HASK Coconut Milk and Organic Honey Curl Care Collection focuses on creating defined curls while the Blue Chamomile and Argan Oil Blonde Care Collection neutralizes brassiness in blonde hair. I got to try the HASK Orchid and White Truffle Moisture Rich Collection which rehydrates and adds shine to dry hair.
By now, you probably know how much I love trying different skincare products. I have a few products that I love and use regularly but even when something is a HG item for me, I still love experimenting with new things. I love the whole process of using skincare- it’s nice to take a few minutes out of every day to feel like I’m doing something good for my skin. And the process of applying different masks, serums, and moisturizers is very relaxing for me. So, as you can expect, I was so excited to try the new Jan Marini Hyla3D HA Activating Complex.
