On skincare


Jurlique Sun Lotion SPF 30+, Radiance Serum, and Herbal Recovery Night Cream, Kiehl's Eye Treatment, Clarisonic Aria cleanser

I'm normally the kind of skincare junky who likes to experiment with different brands and new products. I mean, not that I REALLY enjoy experimenting--I just wasn't sure if I had found the right and best product(s) for me so I kept the hunt on until I did. I had always come across products that I really appreciated, but none that I swore by. Every time I would "hit the pan", I would spend an hour (kid you not) on Sephora and scour through their website to research the pros and cons of each highly-rated product. It was sort of exhausting... but I'm happy to say that I've found some sort of stable skincare routine and a line of products that I've been using for the past few months.

The most newly acquired product is the Clarisonic 'Aria', which I'm SO glad I splurged on. It is just so characteristically me to become apprehensive of quickly-popularized products/tools that garner an overwhelmingly heavy following. I always want to find something that doesn't work so that I could prove people wrong... but no, I've succumbed (however late) and I found myself joining the likes of cult-Clarisonic users. (Luckily for me) I've never had truly bad skin--not too oily, not too dry, no acne, small pores--so I had been weary of how much Clarisonic could actually do for me. But I can attest that their line of sonic brush cleansers is really worth a try, any one of them I think I'd recommend. I didn't break out like some said I would, and just after a week of use, instead of having my normal--good--skin, I had great skin. Glowy, even-toned, and probably ten times cleaner. For the last two weeks, I've used little to no foundation powder simply because I didn't think I needed it--that's how good the 'Aria' has been to me.

And lastly, my brand of choice for face moisturizers is Jurlique. I first tried their Sun Lotion SPF 30+ and Herbal Recovery Night Cream around half a year ago(?) and felt so renewed every single day and night that I sought after some of their other highly-coveted products, like the Radiance Serum, the Rosewater Balancing Mist, and their Balancing Foaming Cleanser, amongst others. I've never been more satisfied with a complete line of products... believe me, Jurlique has me hooked! All that I've tried from Jurlique has left my skin supple and fresh, very clean without stripping it dry. And not to mention, I love Jurlique and their practice of cultivating organic ingredients.

To those who emailed me regarding this, sorry it took me so long to put up a post about the products I use. I hope this helps, and let me know in the comments section if you have any other questions xx

I remember hearing about Clarisonic somewhere before it became popular. I thought it might be too good to be true, but from what everyone's saying, it seems to be the real deal. I'd love to try it out someday, but I never had the money to fund my "research" - what works for my skin and what doesn't. It's good to hear that you're happy with it!

Since I have oily skin, I was never sure about the idea of using moisturizers. Definitely going to check out Jurlique though. Thanks for the recommendation! You're so lucky to have great skin!

I love, love, love my Clarisonic! No more dry patches in the winter, yay! I've been using mine with a natural cleanser from Garden Girl http://www.gardengirlskincare.com and the combo has been great for my picky winter skin.
