Glam Series: Skincare Routine

I heard about Jordon over at Love Always, Nancy J doing a Glam Series link-up and it got me really excited to say the least. I am always curious to find new products that people swear by so a link-up like this is right up my ally. The first in the series is basic skin care. I feel like I've had the same routine since I was a teen- creature of habit much? With that said, behold my skin care routine and I can't wait to read all the others - Happy Almost Friday Ya'll! Be sure to link-up and join in!

 




1. For daily use: Olay regular hydrating fluid
2. Ladies, you have to start an anti-wrinkle/aging routine like now!
3. Advanced Night Repair by Estee Lauder is wonderful for under eyes
4. Don't laugh, but I met a woman (who revealed to me that she was 56) and she did NOT look a day over 28. I begged her to tell me her skin/night routine and she laughed and told me that she puts olive oil on her skin every night. I thought what in the world? But I finally picked up a 'nicer' olive oil from Trader Joes and so far I've been doing it 1 to 2 times a week/ Use a headband or tie your hair back, apply with a cotton ball and watch TV or something for an hour or so. Next, blot with a tissue before bed since it can get messy and wake up to super soft skin!
5. Moving into day time, my two FAVORITE primers ever are Two Faced and Benefit's Pore-fessional!
6. Simple at work make-up- I love Natureluxe by Covergirl. Light and affordable (although I think it is discontinued but you can get it on Ebay for super cheap!)
7. More all-over coverage for maybe a night out, I love Estee Lauder Double-Wear Foundation
8. This is my holy grail ya'll- benefit makes the best pressed powder called Hello Flawless. You can wear it completely alone or dust over your foundation for the perfect airbrushed look! I love this stuff and I am NEVER without it!

  3. Ohhh, you have some products I definitely want to check out. I have never heard of putting olive oil on your skin before bed. I did just read recently that makeup wipes are awful for your skin (rough and the chemicals aren't good either). I love this link up idea, I need to share my products that I use!

    1. the estee lauder one can be but sometimes they give you a small sample (which lasts forever!) The Olay one is less than $20 and a great starter cream!

  8. Does the olive oil make your skin break out at all? I'm down for anything that will keep me looking in my 20's forever ;-)

    1. I've only done it a few times so far and normally my skin is sensitive to break outs like that and it hasn't done anything but make it super soft! *fingers crossed*

  11. I love the EL Advanced Night Repair! I hate the price tag, but skin care is something that I'll let myself splurge on.

  12. I already have the slightest little lines on my forehead and it kills me...they're barely noticeable now, but I worry what they'll look like in the years to come. I am definitely all about trying to tackle wrinkles now!
