Holidays, Your Style

Last Minute beauty guide!

We all know that the holidays are here, and nothing makes me more excited then wearing cozy pajamas in bed, that light up the holiday spirit! I always tend to buy a new pair each year, and fuzzy socks are my favorite. Gifting pajamas is always a great gift for anyone on your list. I have linked several pairs, including these cute ones from Nordstrom.


When it comes to beauty, I love to give the women in my life some of my favorite products. Let me be honest, the winter is hard on our skin, and a good mask and a fun lip balm are great stocking stuffers. Lately people have been asking me about my skincare routine, so I am going to break it down for you below, and any of these products makes for an amazing gift!

Daily skincare routine:

I always start and end my day by cleansing my skin with Revive Gel Cleanser. It is gentle on my skin, and this is one of my favorite brands. A makeup artist led me on to it years ago, and my skin has changed.

After I cleanse, I always wipe a quick cotton pad with Kiehls Ultra Facial Toner. It is made to comfort your skin, and helps suck in moisture.

I always use an eye serum, and although pricey, the Revive anti-aging eye serum is unbelievable. I use a small bit in the morning and the evening.

We all know that when it comes to lip balm, I am a fan of Rose Salve. I use it about ten times a day, and it works on your face, hands, and any bit of dry and damaged skin.

When it comes to moisturizers, I have one for the am, and one for the pm in the winter time. Once again, Revive, has changed my skin. For the am, their Renewal cream with SPF is perfection, and in the evening I use their ultra hydrating firming cream.

I tend to get brown spots from the sun, and the best formula I have found is from Skinceuticals. I put one drop in my moisturizer two times a week.

Last, once a week, I love a good mask, and my favorite is from Boscia. Their charcoal mask is perfect for impurities and pulling out those blackheads on my face.

Cheers and happy shopping!

That Healthy Glow!

I wish that I could be honest and say that I had great skin without having to try. Yes, I am a bit jealous of those that are blessed with flawless skin. In my thirties, I have actually had more trouble then ever before. My skin started to change a few years ago, and it became even more oily. This isn’t bad for age, but certainly not good for acne. I also noticed that the dark spots I had were getting worse, and of course those wrinkles were beginning to deepen. This past year with all of the travel my skin was taking a beating, and so I decided to make it important to find a skincare regimen that attacked all of the above. Now let me say it hasn’t been the easiest journey, but I finally feel like my skin is glowing, and my acne is pretty much gone. If I even skip one day of washing my face, I tend to get a zit. So, lately, although a bit lengthy, this has become just as important as working out and eating well.

Below I am sharing my favorite products that I have discovered that will work magic for your skin in any climate or condition. I came across Revive Skincare about a year ago, and I swear that these have changed my life. Their products are a bit on the expensive side, but they truly last a long time, and for me, my skin is an investment so I feel like it is worth it.

I always start my day by cleansing my face with Revive Gel Cleanser. I also use it again at night when I am getting ready for bed.

 Revive Perfectif skincare

Once I am done cleansing in the morning, I put on the Revive Perfectif Even Skin Tone Cream with SPF 30. It is very important to find a moisturizer with SPF, and this is phenomenal in fighting against dark spots. I simply add one small pump of the Revive Perfectif Even Skin Tone Serum. This serum has changed my life, and my complexion. My skin is smooth and even-toned once again.

Revive Intensite Crème Lustre Cream,

When the night rolls around, once I have cleansed my face, I use the Revive Intensite Crème Lustre Cream, which is an intensive firming moisturizer that helps increase elasticity and reduce sagging skin. It is not too heavy, yet feels amazing. I also add one pump of the Revive Moisturizing Renewal Serum, which penetrates deeply into the skin’s surface to boost the renewal process. I notice a difference every morning with these two products.

With these four products, I do not feel like I need an eye cream, as both serums and creams target fine lines and wrinkles. Although twice a week I use a mask and a glycolic peel.

Malin + Goetz Resurfacing Glycolic Acid Pads

Malin + Goetz Resurfacing Glycolic Acid Pads are genius. It is the at home equivalent of a glycolic acid peel, just gentler. I use these 2x a week to remove dull skin and promote collagen production. Once a week I use the Boscia Luminizing Black Charcoal Mask. It is a fantastic peel-off mask that helps boost skin clarity and minimizes pores. The charcoal removes dirt and impurities and leaves your skin with a healthy glow. I love that way it molds to your skin, you can literally feel your skin tighten when it is on.

It seems like a lot, but to be honest, this regimen has changed my skin. I have most of these products in travel size as well, so that I never skip a day of the proper cleansing routine!
