Friday = Spa Day!
Once a week I like to treat my skin to a spa day. To some people a spa day may involve a bath, a massage, and other fancy stuff, but I’m on a college student budget here and I prefer to put my money towards cute clothes and awesome skin care products! So my spa days are very skin care focused! Am I the only one who can spend hours in Sephora looking at skin and hair care instead of make up?
Alright ladies are you ready for a spa day? Let’s dive on into my skin care routine!
I start off my spa days with a freshly washed face. I use the Simple Water Boost Micellar Cleansing Facial Gel Wash and I love it. You can get this face wash at Target for around $6. If you’re on a the hunt for an affordable skin care brand I would recommend the brand Simple! They have the best skin care for all skin types and they are great for you guys who have sensitive skin like me 🙂
I am a sucker for trying new skin care products and I have been DYING to test out Lush’s Ocean Salt Face and Body scrub. Lush has the best sample sizes and I love to get a sample from them before purchasing the item so I don’t waste my money. I love Lush products but sometimes it takes awhile to find the right one! The Ocean Salt scrub was a perfect match for me. I love this product and I was in awe as I applied it to my skin. It was such a creamy, gentle exfoliant and it left my skin feeling super soft.
After washing off Ocean Salt I had to choose what face mask I wanted to use! Today I picked up the fresh face mask Catastrophe Cosmetic from Lush and this is the BEST face mask I have ever used. Lush face masks have always been my favorite but this one in particular is amazing. Click on the link above to read all about what’s in this product and what it does for your skin!
During my 15 minute mask time I usually like to read or watch youtube videos! Today I decided to read this limited edition Rolling Stones Taylor Swift magazine because we all know I’m a hardcore swiftie <3
After I wash off my face mask, I use a q-tip to apply my Olehenriksen toner to my problem areas. I used to apply my toner with a cotton pad but when I ran out one day, I grabbed a q-tip to use for the night and I saw a dramatic change in my acne. I found that soaking my q-tip in toner and applying it directly onto my acne, instead of rubbing over it, helped the toner soak into my skin and actually do its job. If you take any tips from this blog post, this is the tip to take with you!
Drunk Elephant is another favorite skin care brand of mine. Every night I apply their Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil onto my skin! Hands down the best facial oil ever! Did you know they are called Drunk Elephant because there is a myth that when Elephants ate the fallen fruit from Marula trees they would get drunk? How cute and silly is that!
And there you have it babes! My spa day routine! I always wake up the next morning feeling so fresh and my skin is always very happy and very soft. Try to treat your skin once a week to a spa day. Your skin will thank you 🙂
