What’s In My Fridge? ❄️
Here’s a look at what I have in my fridges these days - yes, I have two because I really enjoy chilled skincare that much! A lot of people ask if there are actual skincare benefits for storing your skincare in a fridge, or if it helps preserve the shelf life of your skincare products - It is simply for aesthetic purposes. I enjoy the cooling, soothing sensation it enhances; it adds to the experience when I am applying my skincare routine. In fact, I have read blogs where dermatologists discuss how it is not necessary to store skincare in a fridge as it does not make the products any more effective than they already are. As for extending or preserving shelf life, research has shown that only a slight extension of shelf life would occur with certain ingredients like retinol, but nothing to make you stop what you’re doing & splurge if you don’t have the extra funds available. I don’t know if it’s just in my head, but I do see a difference with treating puffiness & redness when using a chilled product vs room temperature. 💙 I store a lot of my Drunk Elephant staples that I enjoy chilled, a few other moisturizers / serums & eye creams that I like chilled as well. Eye creams & eye patches are my favorite chilled as it really helps with de-puffing the eye area, especially in the morning! Let me know down below what you have in your skincare fridge! ❄️
DRUNK ELEPHANT-A-Passioni Retinol Cream
Favorite Cleansing Balm of All Time! 💚
𝓝𝓲𝓬𝓮 𝓽𝓸 𝓜𝓮𝓮𝓽 𝓨𝓸𝓾 👋🏼 It’s been awhile since I have done a proper introduction or really talked about myself, so here’s a quick rundown: I am 30 years old and live in Massachusetts. I am a mother to two wonderful boys. Some things that I enjoy besides the obvious (skincare & makeup) are cooking, reading, traveling, spending time with my family, binge watching tv shows / Netflix, & documentaries. Favorite destination? Australia; I went there when I was 15 years old as a student ambassador and it was hands down one of the best experiences of my life! Favorite food? Eggplant parmigiana, yum! Worst fear? Cliche, but being alone. Favorite TV show? Breaking Bad. 💚 Speaking of favorites - my all-time, never fails cleansing balm is Slaai Makeup Melting Butter cleanser from Drunk Elephant 💚 It is one of the very few cleansing balms that does not irritate my eyes, burn or leave my vision blurry. As gentle as it is, it is also one of the most effective cleansing balms that breaks down & removes any makeup (even the toughest of waterproof mascaras), sunscreens & dirt / debris effortlessly. I also love that it never leaves a weird film on my skin or leave my skin feeling greasy. I do use this cleansing balm, as I do with any cleansing balm, as my first step in double cleansing; so I always go in with a gentle face cleanser after using this balm - I highly recommend Drunk Elephant’s Pekee Bar as it is also super gentle on the skin & never leaves my skin feeling dry or stripped. 💚 * Full size Slaai kindly gifted by the brand; others purchased by me 🌟 DRUNK ELEPHANT - Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser

Vitamin C Sleep Mask ☀️💛
It’s been awhile since I’ve done a #watershotwednesday so I figured what better way of getting back into it than showcasing a product I have been enjoying recently! Saturday Skin recently launched their Yuzu Vitamin C Sleep Mask and I knew I had to get my hands on it because the concept is unique & I love myself a good sleeping mask. I love the idea of throwing something on & semi-forgetting about it. Allowing the product to marinate, seep into the skin overnight & do its job - with little to no effort coming from me. Infused with cold-pressed yuzu seed oil & an encapsulated vitamin complex, this sleeping mask transforms stressed, tired looking skin into more radiant, vibrant & hydrated looking skin. So whether you get a full 8 hours of sleep, or 2 hours - you can at least wake up knowing your skin is looking fresh & ready for the day ahead. ☀️ 𝒲𝒽𝒶𝓉 𝐼𝓈 𝐼𝓉? 🧡 Lightweight, jelly texture makes it feel like you have nothing on your skin - no sticky residue left behind. This sleeping mask packs a punch as it targets multiple problem areas such as dullness, aging, pores, stress & texture. It contains ingredients that we all know & love in the skincare world - niacinamide & retinol; which is a dream duo for those who are looking to improve the appearance of texture on their skin. Did you know that the Yuzu fruit contains 3x more vitamin C than any other citrus fruit? For those who care about scents, it has a refreshing scent - no added synthetic fragrance in this formula. Available now at Sephora & Saturdayskin.com for $29 💛 SATURDAY SKIN - Yuzu Vitamin C Sleep Mask

Drugstore Products That Work - Dove Hairspray
Dove - Style+Care Micro Mist Hairspray *hair is mostly fine and wavy Let’s talk hairspray! I feel like I was very scared of using hair spray for a very long time because I didn’t want my hair to have that crunchy texture like I thought it would. Basically because when I was younger that’s exactly what hairspray DID. When I went searching for a hairspray on a trip to Calgary I was so cautious and wanted something that would hold my curls in place but leave me with body and a soft texture. That’s when I found this. I have to say I was hesitant to use a Dove hair product because I’ve just always known Dove to be more of a body brand. This hair spray was cheap ($15?) and the slim and sleek packaging along with the “micro mist” had me sold. The packaging is perfect for holding to be honest. I feel like you don’t think of these things until you’ve actually tried something better and you’re like oh ya that’s nice. The slim waist in the bottle (lol) actually makes it super easy to hold and spray. The drawback is that aerosol sprayer doesn’t work the greatest and some product usually fizzes and gets on my hands. The micro mist itself does hold true to its claim and is very fine which is nice in ensuring you don’t get that crunchy texture. The smell is a little too sweet for my likings but I usually use it with a hair fragrance that masks the smell. I use this for holding my curls and for flattening flyaways and it works just as I want it to. There’s a few different versions of this hairspray in the line so I would like to maybe try another one of those before repurchasing this. Overall though it’s a good product for relatively cheap and the can has lasted me since November with no foreseeable end in sight.

Drugstore Products That Work - Neutrogena Hydro
Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Gel-Cream *skin is normally oily/combo but has been dry recently Okay you guys. This is it. This is really the drugstore product that blew me away. I am so glad that I have it. This product was recommended to me by a friend and I had seen @abbymariehardie rave about the product for a long while before trying it myself. A few weeks ago I was in a dire state of dry skin. I mean BAD. Like skin was cracking and burned and flaking and not a single moisturizer or mask I owned was going to help fix it. In my last hour of desperation I was at Walmart and saw this and figured I had nothing to lose. My thoughtful bf bought it for me at $18 which is pricey for drugstore but well worth the money. I saw immediate results after using it. Like instant almost. It did burn a little at first use because my skin barrier was just so damaged but after it had sunk in it had a nice cooling effect and left me feeling much more hydrated. I’ve said it a million times that I don’t like moisturizers in a pot and I wish so badly this was a pump or a tube but that’s really my only complaint about the packaging. The texture is a thicker blue gel which absorbs so nicely and is probably one of the biggest reasons I find this works for me. I really prefer a gel moisturizer to anything and so I was excited about this texture. This version does have a fragrance to it which I’ll be honest, I don’t LOVE but it’s not a deal breaker. I have been told (thanks @svvphia) that it comes in a fragrance free version for sensitive skin which I 1000% percent will be purchasing when this is empty. This pot hasn’t lasted me very long compared to other moisturizers and there’s a little less product than the package would have you believe but to be fair, I’ve pretty much used this day and night for a month straight. I still have some left so we’re going to count that as a win even though I’m getting dangerously low. I definitely recommend this product to anyone that will listen. It works. It’s affordable. Buy it. I’m going to repurchase.
