Lazy day Routine for Lazy Souls
Lazy day Routine for Lazy Souls We all have lazy day routines when you’re just too tired to do anything but the basics, but I still want good results; I just don’t want to be in the bathroom for more than 5 minutes. My skin is dry: on most nights I do the whole routine of cleanser, toner, serum, eye cream, and night cream; but here’s my advice for those lazy days when you just can’t be bothered. Clarins One-Step Facial Cleanser - For the Best Quick Fix First I’ll remove my makeup with Clarins One-Step Facial Cleanser. No matter how tired I am, sleeping in your makeup is a no-no. Clarins One-Step Cleanser is an express toner that also removes makeup. It has Moringa Seed which tones the skin and eliminates makeup and impurities, leaving the skin feeling fresh and clean. It’s really good but shake well to activate the ingredients. Great for all skin types, use it on cotton wool. You can see the makeup and grime on the pad: which I have to say is rewarding, don’t you think? No! Just me then. Origins Drink Up Intensive Over Hydrating Mask - A Great Night’s Sleep in a Tube After this I go in with one of my favorite night masks, Origins Drink Up Intensive Over Hydrating Mask. It’s perfect for when I’m being lazy, all you need to do is apply a thick layer then go to sleep - simple! What’s more, it smells delicious and has a really creamy light texture. Here’s why it works, it releases hydration into the skin for 72 hours, thanks to the really lovely formulation which includes Glacier Water, Hyaluronic Acid, and avocado butter. Wake up the next day and the difference is amazing; and, what’s more, even if you’ve had a bit too much to drink the night before you would never know - no swollen face or eyes. The combinations shouldn’t work together but they do. Here's a top tip from a makeup artist: keep the products in the fridge. If it’s high summer and you’re sweaty the cooling effect is so delicious. Here’s to lazy days I say.

Glow recipe who? 🥑origins for the win
I’m am slowly starting a love affair with Origins everything. Ever since I tried the eye cream, I’m on an origins kick 😏 This is WAYY better than glow recipe avocado sleeping mask. ORIGINS - Drink Up-Intensive Overnight Mask to Quench Skin's Thirst I love to use this mask twice a week. My face feels extremely hydrated for like a good 2 days after. Makes me think crazy thoughts like I can skip moisturizer and save my products hahaha because I feel that moisturized after. I was scared to use this, I read a lot about users getting this red scary rash on their faces. I’m glad I faced my fears because it’s worth it. I’m giving it 4 due to those rash reviews. We’re all different what’s good for me, might not be good for you.

Cleanser + Mask For A Totally Clean And Hydrated Face
DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample This facial cleanser was gifted to me by a friend who loves Drunk Elephant products. She swears by them, and I completely trust her opinion when it comes to skincare. I would love to have more Drunk Elephant on my skincare arsenal but they just come with a hefty price tag. This cleanser is super gentle; one of the best cleansers I’ve used so far. I love facial washes that cleans my face but doesn’t leave it feeling tight and dehydrated. This clearly gets rid of all the underlying makeup residues that my makeup remover leaves, but even if it’s mad at dirt and grime, it doesn’t feel dry on my face. I thought that by its name, it will be jelly-like in consistency but this cleanser has a normal consistency. ORIGINS - Drink Up-Intensive Overnight Mask to Quench Skin's Thirst After a good cleanse with my Drunk Elephant jelly cleanser, I like taking the bar up a notch but putting on a hydrating mask on my face. I got this Origins in a set, and it was the first time I tried their products. This variant is specifically made to combat dryness and to bring back the skin’s moisture. I have a dry combination skin type so anything hydrating that unclogs my pores is heaven-sent for me. I love love love this mask! It leaves my skin glowing every time I use it. I leave it on overnight and I always wake up with super hydrated skin the morning after. I know it can be overwhelming as Origins have a lot of masks, but if you want to get one for yourself, this is the mask! I recommend it for those who have dry or dry combination skin. It really makes a difference when I use it.

I can’t say enough good things about this brand! I’ve loved all three of their products so much, I find myself reaching for their honey matcha cleanser more that my HG youth to the people cleanser 🤭 🌿The superfood saviour cream is amazing - it’s thicker than what I usually look for in a moisturizer, but it absorbs so fast and makes my skin feel and look incredible. 🌿I’ve only used the mask once, but it was super soothing and hydrating! Overall, these are some great products with amazing ingredients 🌸🌸🌸
This stuff is good! rookibeauty is a new skincare brand with a focus on superfoods in their formulations and I have to say, I'm totally here for it! The Green Pulp Paste Masque is particularly impressive... I can't remember the last time a mask made my skin so soft, smooth and even-toned. I love that there's a slight warming effect but it's not strong enough to irritate my skin. Both the Superfood Creme and the Matcha Honey Cleanser are also lovely and the textures are just to die for. I will say that I think I have gentler cleansers than the cleanser but the green honey texture brings the enjoyment to another level! I also tried it on dry as a makeup remover (before lathering and rinsing it off) and it worked very well. The Creme has such a beautiful light texture but is significantly more moisturizing than a gel. Plus cute packaging doesn't hurt!
Here are my first impressions on rookibeauty, a brand made in Japan whose ingredients are based on superfoods 🍃 .❤️ Green Pulp Paste Masque ($46) - I LOVE THIS. This is what the farmacybeauty Bright On Mask was meant to be - a hydrating gel mask that activates into a warming paste when massaged, but free of fragrance/essential oils. The superfoods here are rich in vitamins A,K, and C and linoleic acid. My face felt sooo soft and plump afterwards, that I’ve used it 3 times this week... .❤️ Superfood Savior Cream ($57) - This is a super emollient cream with squalane, hyaluronic acid, and nourishing coenzyme q10. This is so thick and hydrating that I treat this like a mask. .❤️ Honey Matcha Cleansing Drops ($43) - This was the product I was most excited for, but I ended up having mixed feelings. I loved the look of the ingredients - lactic acid, vitamin C, peptides, matcha, honey - but this stung when I rubbed it near my eyes. My face also felt a bit tight afterward, so it might be too harsh for me. .❤️ Overall, I was impressed by the launch - especially the mask - and will definitely be tracking this brand in the future. (They do free shipping worldwide!)
Rooki high-performing superfood products! They’ve been a part of my routine for the past three months now and I’m ready to share my thoughts. 〰️ 💛 Honey Matcha Cleansing Drops - A gel cleanser that’s super gentle ~ it leaves my skin fresh every time. It also doesn’t strip my skin dry and I guess because I’m normal-oily. It has superfoods like Honey, Uji Matcha Powder, Chia Seeds, Cape Jasmin Fruit and active ingredients such as Lactic Acid, Ascorbyl Glucoside, and Biomimetic Peptide that help in brightening and keeping the skin clean and feeling moisturized. 〰️ 💚 Green Pulp Paste Masque - I enjoyed this the most! I like how it feels warm on my skin as I apply and massage it. It contains Lycopene, Beta-Carotenes, Polyphenols, Matcha, Kale, Soybeans and Vitamin E - it’s like healthy juice paste. It feels really sticky and you must apply it on dry skin and what I usually do is wait for it to melt on my skin since it starts off as a white paste. This definitely makes my skin look healthier mainly because I get that natural flush and my skin feels super soft, bouncy and brighter. 〰️ 💖 Superfood Saviour Creme - This reminds me of High Skincare’s cream texture since it also does the same thing where it gives white streaks (whipped consistency) as you apply and massage it. It has Kale, Lingonberries and Chia seeds as well as Squalene, Hyaluronic Acid and CoQ10 which is said to provide the skin moisture and reversing damage from environmental free radicals. I find it pastey when being applied but once it has settled and absorbed by the skin it doesn’t feel greasy. I’ve tried this under makeup and it worked for me. I made sure my skin absorbed it completely and I used just enough for my face. I feel like drier skin types would appreciate this more - don’t get me wrong I still enjoyed this despite me being oily-normal.
