I haven’t done a music post since I put Things I’m Into This Week on hold. Does that mean I haven’t found been listening to lots of great folks? No! Here’s what’s been on repeat
and isn’t Lemonade.
This is not a sponsored post. In fact, I’m pretty sure Cover FX doesn’t know I exist. But this is going to sound like one because I really love their Custom Cover Drops. It’s an I’m-never-wearing-foundation AGAIN kinda love. A not-buying-anything-else-ever kinda love. It’s serious folks. Real serious.
Today’s post is focused on what I call my full nighttime skincare routine. This is the routine I
try to do every night. I’m giving you a warning, this is pretty long. It’s based on the multi-step routines you see coming out of Korea. It won’t get me in bed in 5 minutes, but it’s a nice way to unwind after a long day. And it’s done great things for my skin.
Did I forget to mention this doesn’t include treatments, masks or exfoliants? Yeah. Those don’t happen every day and aren’t included. Next time. Promise.
This summer is going to be a beast. It’s going to be makeup-melts-off-your-face hot. A true when-did-I-move-to-the-surface-of-the-sun summer. Seriously, it’s 87°F/31°C as of me writing this post. IN APRIL. I picked up Black Opal True Color Perfecting Primer in Medium because it promises light coverage while being hydrating, lightweight and pore refining. Perfect for days when I want coverage but Just Can’t wear makeup.
I’ve put off doing a skincare routine post/series for two reasons. Reason one: I haven’t found products I’m in love with. I’m still on the hunt for a good cleanser and eye cream. The second reason? I have multiple routines. Really! I have a routine for days I’m too tired to do much. I have a “full” routine that involves treatments and masks. I have routines for when it’s hot and humid. I have routines for when it’s cold and dry. I have routines when my skin is irritated. The list goes on and on.
But today? Today we’re taking about my current morning skincare routine. This routine is all about keeping my skin hydrated and protected from the sun. It’s also quick – five products only, some of which will go out of rotation when it gets warmer.
