I don’t know about you, but it’s definitely been a long time since I’ve had a proper facial. My skin is epically over due for a little TLC, and now that we’re spending more time at home, including evenings and weekends in, I finally have all of my products together for an in-home facial.
It goes without saying that all of my products are from Wander Beauty. What can I say, once you find a brand that you love and agrees with your sensitive skin, you stick with it.
Here’s everything I used for my four step facial…
What I love the most about this cleanser is it goes from a gel to a luxurious foam. It’s the best cleanser that I’ve ever used, since it not only gets my skin clean, it also leave it feeling baby soft and hydrated. Since my skin can get a bit dry, I’m always about reintroducing moisture and hydration with the skincare products that I use.
The Fast Lane Instant Facial is a new product for me. It’s been on my list of Wander Beauty products to try (I usually only ‘introduce’ one or two new products to my skin at any given time just to see how my skin reacts and if it’s a product that I want to use on a long term basis.
I tuned into one of the Wander Beauty Instagram Live chats with the co-founder of Wander Beauty, Divya Gugani, and she happened to mention that the product (due to the Glycolic Acid and Lactic Acid) can make your skin tingle a bit at first, but the sensation will quickly dissipate.
Benefits — removes dead skin cells that will leave your skin looking dull, helps treat fine lines and enlarged pores and helps lock in moisture.
Mist Connection is a essence/toner combination that works to balance your skins pH and moisturize all in one single step. Two things that have made Mist Connection a permanent part of my skincare routine, are the calming scent of the product (which smells like fresh lavender to me) and the fact that it’s a fine mist that absorbs into the skin quickly instead of dripping down your face etc like some products do.
There are no words for how much I love the Hidden Glow Brightening Cream. The cream moisturizes your skin, evens skin tone and boosts your natural radiance when use over time. Plus you can blend it with your foundation if you’re heading out to run a few quick errands. (Because we all need to do our part and #stayhome)
If I’m doing a facial more than once a week, skip the Fast Lane Instant Facial because it’s only recommended for use once a week. So on other days you want to give you face a little something extra I would go with the Drift Away Cleanser, Mist Connection and follow up with either the Hidden Glow Brightening Cream or the Dive In Moisturizer, whichever your prefer.
