Purchase of the Week: Skin Care

I have always been a "splash some water on my face before bed" kind of low maintenance girl until recently when I noticed that those dark circles under my eyes aren't fading and having breakouts at age 27 is quite a nuisance. A couple recent finds that are changing my skin for the better (and are cheaper than a facial).

Non-greasy, lightweight moisturizer. A little goes along way. Part of the Philosophy line. For combination skin (they do have one for dry skin as well)

A weekly cranberry enzyme 10-minute facial mask that makes it look like you just had a facial. When I had a Groupon facial recently, this was used on me and now I can do my own facial at home.

Illuminating foundation primer. Yes, it's an extra step before putting on tinted moisturizer or foundation but it makes your make-up last longer, go farther and look more "lightweight"

Oh the eye cream. I can't believe I'm old enough to need this. This stuff is expensive but will probably last me a year. Use right before bed. Reduces puffiness, dark circles, lines, etc.

Let me know your favorite products too!


  1. I've unfortunately been using eye cream since I was 18. It's never to early.

  2. I love the laura mercier foundation primer. I reviewed some moisturizers on my blog and will do a primer one soon. I cannot live without this stuff. I use the one for dry skin. It makes a world of difference in my foundation. Started following, great ideas :)
