Two new skincare loves
I’ve recently been breaking out around my chin for some reason. Maybe because it’s the middle of summer and I’m experiencing more oil in my t-zone by the end of the day. Or that I’ve been taking more classes versus going to the gym where I can wash my face right after a workout. Either way, I’m super happy to have these convenient Acne Cover Patches Avarelle so nicely sent over.
My blemishes usually turn into whiteheads within a few days, but these Avarelle patches have been speeding up the process overnight! They seem to bring the pimple to a head and draw out the bacteria by the morning with Tea Tree Oil. I also love the inclusion of Calendula, which helps with redness and is one of my favorite ingredients in skincare.
There are several different sizes from small and medium dots to large square patches. The dots are perfect for one off spots and the squares are great work well on areas of congestion. Reed has been using and loving these too! They’re really gentle yet effective, and I would highly recommend them!
Next, I won this cute First Aid Beauty Priming Moisturizer in a giveaway on Instagram and have been using it for about two weeks. It’s pretty lightweight and, true to its name, does feel like a mix between a hydrating moisturizer and skin smoothing primer. I love that it combines the two steps as I don’t normally use makeup primer. I hadn’t ever found one that I liked enough to use daily, but this changes that!
I’m not normally someone who likes “luminous” or “light-reflecting” additions to my skincare because they tend to be too shimmery/glittery and look unnatural. This one has micro-pearls which are surprisingly subtle and add a dewy glow to the skin that I actually enjoy.
FAB has been really impressive lately! I loved their Tinted Moisturizer as well and would have repurchased except it has Octinoxate as an SPF ingredient, so it’s not reef-safe. Their new concealer looks wonderful as well! I think that’s topping my wishlist right now actually.
