Get Your Glow On!
Let’s chat Skincare! I’m not an expert, I have a lot to learn but I have tried quite a few different products/brands and have some favorites. I get messaged all the time about my skin and its a huge compliment but it’s definitely a work in progress…. like I’m the best at moisturizing my face, but literally never put lotion on my body. Meanwhile, my husband puts lotion on his entire body twice a day and is always lathering our girls up. So #balance right?
For those wondering, my skin lands in the “combination” skin type. Colorado is super dry, so I’m always looking to plump up my skin but my t-zone can get oily so I exfoliate there more than my entire face. My skin isn’t sensitive and I’m trying to treat dehydration, wrinkles, and pores. So the products above are based on my skin type and the results I want to see. I took the advice of the girl who does my facials and bought this Facial brush (I often forget to use) because she said they all do the job and you don’t need a expensive one.
First off, I love DERMA-E products! I’ve used them for years, they are affordable, vegan and still have all the good active ingredients fancy spas use in their expensive products. I get custom facials often and I asked my girl to write down all the “active ingredients” she used in her products and found them in Derma-E so I really love that. If your looking to take a step towards skincare but want to ease your way in this brand is great.
DERMA-E Anti Wrinkle Cleanser: Overall a great cleanser, it doesn’t foam but I like how it works. I keep this in my shower.
DERMA-E Anti Wrinkle Renewal Cream: Love this product and used it for years. It goes on great, absorbs well and helps rejuvenate your winter skin. I’m currently using a cream below but really love this one so wanted to include it.
DERMA-E Anti Wrinkle Scrub: A great exfoliator. I keep this one in the shower too and use it about 2 times a week based on my skin type.
*CannaCell Dreamy Night Cream: I just started using this product by a recommendation of a friend and quickly fell in love. It’s sort of expensive but worth it. I’ll keep buying this over and over again because my skin loves it! I apply it at night.
*Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser: I recently got this as a sample with my Glossier order and was amazed the first time I used it. By far my favorite cleanser I’ve ever used.
*Glossier Solution (exfoliating skin perfecter: Don’t you love that name? Skin perfecter! I ordered this by a friends recommendation as well and love it. It says it changes skin within 4 weeks and I’m not quite at the 4 week mark but have loved it so far. I don’t have any large scaring on my face but do have a few marks im hoping it helps with. I really like how many before and afters they shared on their site.

For Christmas, I asked for Biossance samples. They have some great sample packs on their site. Their products are on the pricier side and before I bought full sizes I wanted to make sure I loved them. These 3 are my favorite from the sample packs. I did have a few others but 1 caused me to breakout and I waited a week and tried again and I broke out again. Whenever trying new products give your skin time to adjust!
Biossance Squalane + Probiotic Gel Moisturizer: Love how this goes on, it feels kind of cold but refreshing
Biossance Fine Misting Spray: Not a need, but I don’t wear makeup a lot. I usually keep this in my bag and spray it on my face throughout the day. Mostly I use something like this in summer on hot days by the pool.
Biossance Squalane Vitamin C Rose Oil: I use straight vitamin E oil on my face (under my eyes) most of the time but love that this has vitamin C oil and loving how it feels.
We are big Young Living fans. I place an order for a Premium Starter Kit whenever we’re getting low on Oils but I also place monthly orders with their Essential Rewards program. It’s like a monthly subscription box in a way but you can completely customize your order each month instead of the same things over and over. If your interested in Young Living, shoot me an email and we can chat more with zero pressure. If you want to order a kit you can shop here and I will mail you a special gift along with it!
Young Living Rose Ointment: I love this for my lips but you can use this anywhere.
Frankincense: add a roller top on it and apply to any wrinkles or all over face. You can mix it with jojoba oil but I’d recommend looking into what carrier oil goes best with your skin type. It does matter so there’s some good posts about that with a simple google search.
Purification: Our favorite oil… okay top 3 favorite oil! We use this whenever we get tattooed but you can also put it on blemishes.
*Organation Custom Skin Cream: I love this company because you take a simple test based on your skin and then you choose off of a list of products it recommends for your skin type. So you build your own custom cream for your skin. Mine tingles when I put it on and I use this one mostly in the morning to wake up. The test is free and linked. Use code “Stephanie10” for 10% off!

Below is the makeup I wear from time to time. I love being confident in my own skin and I think thats because im comfortable in my skincare routine. But when I do wear makeup I like it to look effortless and light.
Pacifica BB Cream: Without fail this is my ALL TIME FAVORITE product ever girls! It is a one in one bare skin tint and it’s a little bottle of magic. Its way affordable and I’ve used it for gosh, over 5 years now. You will love how light this feels but the glow it gives your skin.
Savvy Minerals from Young Living. Okay, I was skeptical at first but I love this vegan line. I have the savvy Minerals Kit and I’ve had it for over a year. (again I don’t wear makeup that much but it really lasts) It comes with :
1 Foundation, 1 Blush, 3 Eyeshadows, 1 Lip Gloss (that I use all the time), Misting Spray, Foundation Brush, 5-ml Lavender essential oil, Savvy Minerals by Young Living Booklet, Introduction to Young Living Booklet
The Misting Spray and brush is awesome! If you are looking to ditch your toxic makeup and switch this is the best bang for your buck. Email me and I can help you color match or answer any question!
Glossier Perfect Skin Tint: This is great if you like a liquid coverage. I’m not obsessed but I do like it. Still light but still provides coverage
Glossier Stretch Concealer: Love this for under my mom tired eyes.
Pink House Organics Glow Stick : I found this brand from one of my favorite Instagrammers. They are from Canada, clean and a small shop I absolutely love supporting. I have the Peach, Copper & Champagne. Don’t leave them in the car or else they will melt (lol #storyofmylife)
