The Skincare Line Up: July 9th, 2021

The Full Line up, July 9th, 2021

Good morning my darlings and welcome to the weekly Skincare lineup.  This isn’t an in depth review but more of a recap of what I am currently using and how I am feeling about it as I go through.There were a lot of good products this week. Most have been in the line up a while and will soon be changed out or used up, but there were a few shakeups. There will be a new edition starting this afternoon. I am trying a Peter Thomas Roth Mask out for Face Mask Friday today and if it goes well it will be used twice a week to see if there are longer term results. But that is for later. Now we need to look at this past week.

Okay so let’s just go down the line.  While the Native Deodorant is a deodorant and not an antiperspirant I am still using it this summer.  I thought about picking up an antiperspirant (and I did) for when I go out some place where sweat marks would be a really bad thing.  However in the past few weeks I haven’t gone anywhere that it was an issue.  The few places where I might go and not want to show sweat were so heavily air-conditioned that I actually had to bring a cardigan to keep from shivering. So even though I have an antiperspirant waiting in the wings, I have yet to actually break it out. The Native has worked thus far.

I like the clean of the Korres Foaming cream cleanser.  It smells fresh and feels clean without stripping the skin.  It goes on like a cream so it isn’t drippy until I add water and rub.  Then it foams up to wash the dirt away. It has a slight scent if you put your nose up to the open lid that might be a bit dairy-esque because of the yoghurt but once on the skin it just smells fresh and clean and the scent just washes down the drain.

I did a full review of the Time Revolution Artemisia Treatment Essence (which you can find here).  It is a great product and one that I will repurchase once it runs out.  It is especially lovely in the summer time as it works to soothe skin that has spent too much time in the sun.  It is a large bottle so it will be with me for quite some time. Very little product is needed, so it lasts which is nice value for the money as well as simply being a great product.

I finished out the Caudalie Vino Perfect serum and rotated a sample from Whal Myung into the line up this week.  One pump is all that is needed to cover the face and neck.  It feels very wet when it applies but absorbs relatively quickly.  There is a slightly perfume scent to it that tends to linger.  It isn’t unpleasant but I haven’t decided how I actually feel about it.  It is also a little sticky after application.  There is anough product for another week of trial so I might have more for you next week on this product.  At the moment I’m a little on the fence about it.

The Elemis Procollagen Eye mask is still working out well for me.  I actually apply the dior serum first and then add the eye mask once it has absorbed (I tend to put the serums on, then brush my teeth, then add the Elemis followed by moisturizer. And then I finish with sunscreen. 

The moisturizer I am using right now is the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Oil Control Moisturizer.  (Full Review here) I like it and will happily finish out the jar.  There are about two, maybe three weeks left of product in the jar and then I will switch out moisturizers.

The sunscreen will remain.  I’m sure I will try out others but Volition is my go too as it absorbs well and I can just add it to my skin care line up without worrying about clogged pores.

Last week I had a sample of the Crest Pro Health Gum Detoxify.  You might notice in the photo, I went ahead and picked up the full size.  I have a couple of other toothpaste samples to try out, but I have to say I really liked the clean this gave.  My mouth felt fabulous.  So even if I try out other products, I wanted to have a full tube on hand for daily use.

Nighttime Skin Care

Makeup Remover: Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm

Cleanser: Korres Foaming Cream Cleanser Pre + Probiotics Greek Yoghurt

Toner: Time Revolution Artemisia Treatment Essence from Missha (Gifted by brand)

Eye Cream: Elemis Pro-Collagen Eye Revive Mask

Moisturizer: First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Oil Control Moisturizer

Eye Serum: Dior Capture Totale Super Potent Eye Serum (gifted by Influenster)

Lips: Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask (in Maple), no lip scrub

Night Mask: Wander Beauty Do Not Disturb Overnight repair serum

Toothpaste: Crest Gum Detoxify Deep Clean

Most of the products I used in the day are also used at night.  The two differences are the Wander Beauty Overnight repair concentrate and the Bite Beauty Agave Lip mask.  The Wander Beauty I used three times this past week.  I like having a night mask for nights when I feel I need a little extra moisture for my skin, but I don’t need it every night.  I think if I used it everynight it would be far too much moisture for my skin.  It is a light weight cream that absorbs well and It comes in a beautiful glass pump bottle.  The nozzle is actually shaped well so if you hold your hand under it and press, the cream shoots into your hand instead of dribbling down the side of the lovely glass bottle, which I find nice. 

The Bite Beauty Agave Lip mask I use every night just before I go to sleep and I really like it.  It feels a bit heavy as I drift off to sleep but by the time I weak up the next morning almost all of it has absorbed and my lips feel great.  This is not my first tube of the Bite Beauty lip mask and it certainly won’t be my last.
