I haven’t always taken good care of my skin. When I was younger, I loved laying in the sun and slept in my makeup often. As I’ve gotten older, that has changed, but I do still enjoy laying in the sun :). Today, I receive a lot of compliments on my skin, which has mostly to do with the care and products I use. Now, full disclosure, I did start getting botox about 2 year ago around my eyes to help control my crows feet, but that is the only face procedure I’ve had.
I love trying new products, but there are some products that I swear by. The first one is Lancome Genifique. I have been using this for 1 year now and it has been a game-changer. If I had to choose only one product to use, it would be this. Now, it is pricey, but one bottle has lasted me a year. They do offer a 7 day sample, which is what I did and I seriously noticed a difference in my skin by the third day. Then, I was hooked. The second product I have used for about 7 years now is Glam Glow Youth Mud Mask. It is a great exfoliator and I truly feel like I look 5 years younger for the next three days after using it and gives your skin a healthy glow. If I ever have a special occasion, I always use this the night before, but I try to do this mask at least once a week. If you follow with a spray tan after this mask, you’re golden, literally.
Below are my everyday skincare products I use. Some products I spend more money on than others. My mom recommended Neutrogena’s Hydroboost cleaning gel and I loved it right away and have been using it for 3 years now. It’s gentle, smells great, and my skin feels so soft after using it. It keeps my skin hydrated and I know you’re supposed to, but I don’t have to use a moisturizer most of the time. I haven’t really found an eye cream or serum that I see great results with, but I use the Neutrogena Hydro Boost and it is also gentle and keeps my under eyes hydrated and the Botox does the rest. I didn’t link the cleansing brush because it’s a Clarisonic and they are no longer in business. I’ll have to purchase something comparable soon and I’ll keep you posted. I do use my Clarisonic everything other day and also has made a huge difference in my skin. I started using the Clarisonic before my wedding 7 years ago and I can honestly say my skin improved 98%. After I used it, I recieved sooo many compliements at work on how good my skin looked. The Tula Rose Gold Cooling Eye Stick is great for tired moms as my daughter likes call me. I don’t really get bags under my eyes much, but it gives you a great glow. I think you can use over or under your makeup, but I use it before I apply my concealer. The Timless Organics products I’ve been using is a new addition to my skincare routine. This was a 3 a.m. purchase when my son refused to stay in his bed. I was influenced by a makeup artist who raved about it. I have eyelash extensions so I probably shouldn’t be using the radiance oil, but sometimes I can’t resist. I mix in my foundation and it gives you a dewy glow. I was actually looking really rough and tired one day so I mixed a little in my foundation and my husband complimented me on how good I looked. You can also use the radiance oil by itself on your cheekbones for a subtle highlighter. Anyway, I’ve linked the products below and feel free to reach out with any questions. I only know what I know, but I will give you my honest opinion. These are just the products that I currently use and are working for me.
These are the sunless tanning products I’ve been using lately. I use the medium for my face and the dark for my body. I also use a tanning mit which just helps me get a more even application. The it just helps me to get a more even application. I do breakout with certain products and these do not break me out.
Tip: When you’re looking for a sunless tanning product, make sure you find one with undertones that work for you. The three I have listed below have green undertones which looks better with my skin tone.

This drying lotion is a great spot treatment if you have a blemish! I wanted to use it a few times before I shared it and it worked for me. My little friend was gone completely by day 3! Make sure you do not shake the bottle. The pink stuff stays at the bottom. Directions: Take a qtip and dip all the way to the bottom to get the pink stuff on the qtip and dab on your blemish.
