The foundation of beautiful skin starts with skincare.  When my skin feels and looks healthy, I find that the application of my makeup goes on a lot more smoothly.  When my skin is at its very best, my makeup looks at its very best, so establishing a good skincare routine is very important. Today I’m excited to share my experience with the Foreo Luna 2* and Foreo Luna Play, two new skincare cleansing devices I’ve been using for almost a month now.

As much as I love makeup, skincare is just as important to me. It is the canvas in which you apply your makeup on and it is often times an indicator of your overall age, health and lifestyle. I have recently had a chance to try out some products from the Tula Skincare line. Their products contain probiotic technology, which is a new beauty breakthrough shown to hydrate your skin, even out your skin tone and texture, reduce wrinkles and inflammation just to name a few things.

Skincare has always been important to me. Being the beauty obsessive I am, I am always yearning to try new things. I am always intrigued and curious about the science behind beauty products and the potential benefits my skin can reap from using them. I particularly love treating my skin once or twice a week to a mask. This is what I would consider dedicated “me time” at the end of the night, ensuring that my skin can optimally look its best in the morning. Recently, I have been using the Dr. Brandt’s Oxygen Facial Recovery Mask once a week for the past month and today I will be reporting my thoughts and overall review.

Recently, I switched up my night time skincare regimen to include the method of double cleansing, using products from Kaplan MD’s Double Cleansing Kit. What is Double cleansing? It is two step process and a way to thoroughly cleanse the skin.  By purifying the surface of the skin, it allows you to unclog pores and get rid of any residue left behind. When skin is properly cleansed and detoxified, it leaves a layer of fresh, young skin cells that is ready to absorb the nutrients from moisturizers and serums that follow. I have been putting the items to the test for the past few weeks now and I have some thoughts and first impressions to share with you today.

An innovative, anti-aging range of products that I have used in my skincare rotation since it first launched in 2011 is Algenist. I’ve been a fan of their Anti-aging eye cream and I was lucky to receive The Best of Algenist Collection recently. This collection offers a comprehensive ritual of anti-aging treatments which have been formulated with their star patented ingredient: Alguronic Acid and/or Microalgae Oil. I have been putting the items to the test for the past two weeks now and I have some first thoughts and impressions to share with you today.
