While waiting to meet some friends for dinner recently, I stopped in to blue mercury to kill some time. I’m always looking for masks or creams to help clear my skin of blemishes and impurities. Here I picked up a few products that I really like, so I wanted to share a few other products I have been impressed with! From skin care to home fragrances, these products are on my list of necessities.
Mario Badescu, Cucumber Tonic Mask, $18
This mask is amazing, and I would be honest if I thought otherwise. I have used many different skin care products over the years, and I see visible results from this mask. I noticed that my skin appeared to be tighter and my pores cleared of impurities. 10/10 would recommend to those with blackheads and/or acne. I have fairly sensitive skin and this hasn’t irritated it at all.
Renee Rouleau, Post-Breakout Fading Gel, $38.50
This stuff is pricey, but worth it in my opinion. I ordered this product to meet the shipping minimum and this product has really impressed me. I see visible results after daily application, which is some what of a unicorn in the skincare world.
Renee Rouleau, Anti-Cyst Treatment, $45.50
PSA– this is a lifesaver. Last week, I felt a cystic blemish appearing on my face. I don’t get them super often, but when I do they are usually large, red and painful. For years I would get this cystic acne and be in the dermatologist’s office getting cortisone shots to make them go down. This stuff works like a charm, I put it on the cystic pimple I saw felt on my face last week and its gone after 2-3 applications. I’m considering switching all my facial skin care products over to Renee Rouleau products.
Bath & Body Works, Bondi Beach Single Wick Candle, $14.50
I stumbled into Bath & Body Works a few weekends ago. I’m a sucker for these deals and for scented candles. This candle smells like summer, in a banana-flavored sunscreen kind of way. The smell is so great and it makes me feel relaxed when I’m trying to wind down at night.
Fresh, Hesperides Grapefruit Eau de Parfum, $25
My second blue mercury pick up; this scent is light and smells exactly like grapefruit, not one bit artificial. Rollerballs have become a favorite of mine just for the convenience of them. I carry this around in my purse just in case I need to freshen up.
Glossier, Lidstar, $30 for 2
Personally, I’ve never really been “into” makeup. I like mascara and a BB cream to cover my face, but I never really ventured much into eyeshadows other than a neutral palette from the drug store. These cream eye shadows are all parts glittery and easy to apply. Simple, but effective.
All of these are relatively affordable as well as available online, so feel free to try some and let me know what you think!
