I'll be honest, I have been blessed with pretty good skin. I have always taken it for granted, too. I have gone days where I don't even wash my face, let alone have a skin care routine. But as I have gotten older, I have started to notice my skin is not as clear as it used to be. Probably the beginning of this year I noticed breakouts more often, enlarged pores, blackheads, uneven skin tone, texture, dry skin. I started to notice areas that small wrinkles were forming. It freaked me out. But not enough for me to change my habits. Not until I went three straight months with terrible (to me) acne. I realized something needed to change. I became vigilant in wearing sunscreen and hats when I was outdoors, and began to do some research on how to care for one's skin. These products are products I've been using for 1-3 months now, and I can honestly say they have made all the difference.
I have always had dry skin. I'm not sure if it's thanks to genetics or this dry Colorado weather, but my legs, arms, hands...everything is always dry. Especially in the winter. I've been on the hunt for a lotion that could fix this problem, without being too thick. Let me tell you, this product fits the bill! Australian Gold Forever After is not only a good daily moisturizer, it is also a tan extender.

This stuff really does what it says! I use it every day, right before bed. I wake up with soft skin and the light scent of coconut.
Leanne Grace Beauty is a product line made by Cassie, in Gunnison, CO. She is a mama who is passionate about creating healthy skin care with natural ingredients. She is also passionate about helping women and children in need, and donates a generous portion to ministries that serve them. I love her heart, I love her drive, and I love her products! My favorites are her blissful body butter, and miracle beauty oil and serum.
I use the body butter in vanilla spice and it smells amazing. She also makes an unscented one for those who are sensitive to scents! The formula is silky smooth and rich. It helps to regenerate new, healthy skin cells and promote healing. I use this after every shower. It is so soft and feels so luxurious on my skin!
I use the miracle beauty oil and serum on my face about once a week. It is an anti aging facial oil that is actually a favorite of Jaclyn Hill, as well!! It is packed with good seed oils, you'll have to run over to her site and check it out!
This is my absolute favorite make up setting spray. I've tried several, but I love that this one works well and it is organic. Not only can you use Pure Bliss Makeup Setting Spray to set your make up, but the revitalizing tea extracts, along with DMAE and MSM work together to make a moisturizing and nourishing spray to freshen up at any time. Rich in antioxidants, topical applied organic tea extracts help promote healthy, youthful skin. MSM has a softening, penetrating affect on the skin, while DMAE penetrates easily into the skin, providing instant tightening and increased elasticity.
My second favorite product of all the products I use or have tried, is this little pot of gold. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen this listing talking all about it. Lalogy The Hangover is a game changer. It is an intensive moisturizer that instantly revives fatigued skin, ( can I get an amen, fellow mamas?!) relieves irritation and stress, uplifts, and tightens. I's yellow color comes from pomegranate and sea buckthorn oils which even out blemishes and uneven skin tones. With prolonged use, more radiant, healthy, and younger skin will be revealed. It is silky, and lightweight and I am obsessed! I put it on every morning, and every night.
You can use my code 'teddybearsandlipstick' to receive 10% off any of lalogy's products!! They have several amazing moisturizers and I'd love to try them all!!
