skin care:

s k I n

My 25th birthday is quickly approaching and my skin is not getting any younger.

I thought I would share the products that I have been using recently.

The Ole Henriksen products are new for me; I decided to try them after YouTuber Em Ford of MyPaleSkin shared that they helped her skin. They are a little pricy but I always buy expensive products in a sample gift set first! Also, I also use the moisturizer at night because it’s a bit heavy/oily… not completely sold on that yet.

As far as the Clinique Gel, Lush Dark Angels, Nib & Fab Serum, and Burt’s Bees wipes… those are just fabulous staples that I always find myself going back to.

To be completely honest… I’m not even sure if the Tony Moly Panda Eye Stick even does anything… I just though it was cute.

It deeply purifies and pampers skin, infusing delicate nourishment with African red tea, a youth-restoring antioxidant to strengthen skin, vitamin C to brighten and firm, and borage seed oil to soothe and nourish. Bright and energizing citrus extracts of grapefruit, orange, and tangerine purify and intoxicate the skin senses.

What it is:
An antioxidant-rich brightening and nourishing serum that contains vitamin C.

What it is formulated to do:
Look forward to a bright future—daily. Formulated with a proprietary five-source vitamin C complex to support natural collagen production, brighten, and minimize fine lines, this must-have serum defends from environmental aggressors and free radical damage, leaving skin healthy and protected.

What else you need to know:
Not all vitamin C is created equal. Vitamin C is the primary water-soluble antioxidant in the body, disarming free radicals and preventing damage both inside and outside cells. Ole Henriksen has harnessed the power of vitamin C by creating a proprietary “5-C” complex to repair, protect, and nourish.

How the complex works:
– Orange extract supports natural cell turnover and purifies.
– Grapefruit extract brightens with antiseptic and aromatic qualities.
– Rose hips seed extract heals, repairs damage, and soothes.
– Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate is very stable, safe, and non-irritating—the key to production of collagen.
– Ester-c (Calcium Ascorbate) is a highly stable natural form of vitamin C found naturally in the body.

Use all over for perfectly smooth, bright skin. An angel indeed!
