Makeup Mondays with Mario
This is so exciting being able to ask you a question. I am a regular visitor to your blog and have learned so much about makeup from you. But my question isn’t about makeup. It’s about skincare. I’d love to know what your favorite skincare products (cleanser, moisturizer, scrub, makeup remover and lip balm) are and why.
Thanks and keep up the awesome work,
I have tons of favorites when it comes to skincare products. For cleansing, I love
; it feels amazing, smells good and spreads nicely. A less expensive and comparable cleanser (and one of my all time faves) is La Mer The Cleansing Foam . A great, basic and cheap scrub is Olay Deep Cleansing Face Wash with Witch Hazel . I try not to exfoliate every day though – it can be too harsh on your skin. Once or twice a week I use St. Ives Apricot Scrub . To remove your makeup, I recommend DDF’s Glycolic 5% Exfoliating Wash . I love everything about them and I’m sure you will too. Wipe away makeup and then follow with your normal skincare routine. Josie Maran’s Bear Naked Wipes
When it comes to moisturizing, I tend to use products that are not too thick or oily. I love
. It comes in a pump and is more lightweight than the popular creme. La Mer The Moisturizing Lotion is still a favorite of mine also and works well on a lot of skin types. Cetaphil is a very nice lip balm and you should try out Sara Happ’s The Lip Slip her lip exfoliators that come in lots of great flavors. I also love . I saved the best for last – MAC’s Tinted Lip Conditioner w/ SPF 15 It’s a new eye cream and it’s the creme de la creme! I use it like three times a day and I LOVE IT! The Eye Balm by La Mer.
