My Winter Cruelty-Free Skin Care Routine

My Winter Cruelty-Free Skin Care Routine

Taking care of your skin is one of the most important parts of your beauty routine. As the seasons change, the needs of your skin can change too. It’s important to listen to your skin and update your cruelty-free skin care routine as necessary. Recently winter has finally started to hit here in California but it hasn’t quite made up its mind to stick around. The temperatures have been fluctuating a lot, which isn’t doing my skin any favors. I have partnered with Osea Malibu, a cruelty-free and vegan skin care company that makes really lovely skin care, to share part of my winter cruelty-free skin care routine with you!

In this video, I walk through each step in my nightly cruelty-free skin care routine. Some steps, like the face mask, I don’t do every night but I think that they are a very important, and often overlooked, step in every skin care routine.

Kaia Naturals Bamboo Tapioca Beads Cleansing Kit Review

Kaia Naturals Bamboo Tapioca Beads Cleansing Kit Review

Exfoliating your skin helps to clear up and brighten your complexion. It can remove dry and dull skin, diffuse the look of fine lines, keep your pores clean to reduce breakouts, and help create an even skin tone. There are a lot of exfoliating products on the market, however a lot of them have harsh chemicals or can be irritating for sensitive skin.

Mary Futher created Kaia Naturals after working at several large beauty brands. The goal of Kaia Naturals is to fill the need for natural yet functional skincare products that everyone can use. All of their products include bamboo which is known to polish and cleanse your skin. I received the Bamboo Tapioca Beads Customized Cleansing Kit to try out. This kit comes with the Bamboo Tampioca Beads powdered facial cleanser, a small tube of moringa oil, and a bamboo mixing spoon.

Claims: “The first customizable cleansing kit allows you the versatility in customizing your cleanser (including the consistency) by adding droplets of different liquids. You can intensify or lessen the degree of exfoliation with each cleanse, making it perfect for ultra sensitive skin.”

Dermalogica PreCleanse Oil and Wipes Review

Dermalogica PreCleanse Oil and Wipes Review

One of the latest skincare trends is double cleansing. What exactly is double cleansing? It is using an oil cleanser to remove your makeup and following up with a traditional cleanser. Dermalogica currently has two items to help you with your double cleanse – their PreCleanse Oil and their PreCleanse Wipes. I was able to try out the Dermalogica PreCleanse Set thanks to iFabbo and wanted to share my thoughts here.

Claims: “Deep-cleansing oil melts impurities and make-up from skin. As the first step in your Double Cleanse regimen, PreCleanse thoroughly melts away layers of excess sebum (oil), sunscreen, waterproof make-up, pollutants and products that build up on skin, allowing your prescribed Dermalogica Cleanser to penetrate even further for professional cleansing results. Achieve ultra clean and healthy skin on the go with the Double Cleanse regimen that begins with PreCleanse. Each biodegradable wipe melts away layers of excess sebum (oil), sunscreen, waterproof make-up, pollutants and products, allowing your prescribed Dermalogica Cleanser to penetrate even further for professional cleansing results.”
