I have been struggling with my skin for a good chunk of my teen and young adult life. Now that my wedding is around the corner there is no time for experiments I need something that works… and I think I have found it.
One important part of my routine is a monthly facial that includes some variety of a peel to help resurface my skin. This has actually made more of a difference then I ever thought. The more consistently I go the more I see less scaring, discoloration, etc.
Lucky for me, BlueMercury
reached out and asked if I would like to try their “You Glow Girl Facial
“. As one easily persuaded by marketing, I had to give this remarkably adorable named facial a try.
The facial was absolutely delicious. I actually walked out of the room glowing… no really. This is by far my new favorite facial. Also, lucky for my DC area readers, BlueMercury has opened a store in Alexandria, VA (600 King St. Alexandria, VA 23314) in addition to the two other DC locations.
After walking out of the room I knew I had to walk away with the m-61 Lip Scrub
. It is fantastic on my dry winter lips. I highly recommend it.
Now let’s get to my daily routine. Before I share it, I want you to know that I found what works for me, but I am by no means an expert and each persons skin reacts differently to different routines/products. My skin is classified as combination, sensitive skin.
Clarisonic Mia | Kiehl’s Facial Cleanser | Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Masque | Kiehl’s Facial Cream | Kiehl’s Re-texturizing Micro-Dermabrasion
Daily: Clarisonic twice a day with the Facial Cleanser and moisturize with the Facial Cream at night.
Weekly: Once a week I use the Masque and Re-Texturizing Cream (not at the same time, of course).
The routine is actually very simple and I have started to realize that none of the really wacky, out-of-this-world face products work on my skin, my skin wants a simple, gentle routine.
I am still learning about my skin but am feeling more confident every day as I see changes. What is your routine and what works for you?
BlueMercury provided a complimentary facial and did not compensate me for my review. All other products mentioned and opinions are my own.
