Summer To Fall Skincare Routine Updates
Cleanser Korres Greek Yoghurt Cleanser (use code DORAN20 for 20% off) This cleanser stood on my shelf for months and I finally brought it out. I am OBSESSED! My skin dry tired skin loves this cleanser. It is a cream to foam but does not have soap or drying effects. I don’t like to remove makeup so as the weather turns colder and I start wearing makeup again I’ll have to add in a balm.
Apart from gel-like texture cleansers, you can also try soaps made from natural ingredients such as lavender, tea tree oil, coconut, goat milk, and aloe vera. In fact, soaps made from aloe vera help lighten the skin as well as acne scars, while goat milk soaps, for instance, help reduce irritation and cleanse while without harming the natural skin barrier.
Toner Kate Somerville Liquid Exfolikate This was a gift at a BlogHer event that was so worth the 8-hour drive round trip! I am a fan of the Kate Somerville Exfolikate mask but this liquid version is BETTER! My breakouts are gone, my skin texture is smoother and my skin is just glowing since I started using it. Olivia threw (heavy glass) bottle and broke the top but I’m making sure to use every last drop.
Eye Cream Sunday Riley AutoCorrect I discovered this through Carolin Hirons. It was in one of her kits and I have to say we can disagree about her being the queen of skincare (I say yes) but we can not disagree about her ability to pick eye cream. Every eye cream she has ever recommended for my skin type has been spot on. If you are worried about bags, fine lines, puffiness, or just a tired look this Sunday Riley eye cream banishes all of that. I went ahead and bought another.
Treat Discoloration Serum by Good Molecules Incredible at doing exactly what it says, this serum is gentle but effective. I have had no irritation using it twice a day– somedays with stronger peels. See more of my review on this serum here.
Hydrate Guerlain Abeille Royale Youth Watery Oil A serum, essence, oil in one this is one product that does a lot. Made from black bee honey and royal jelly this watery oil is rich in amino acids and high in fructose-content. Basically, that gives the skin a more hydrated, plump, and youthful appearance. See how I use it in my routine here.

Anti-Aging/Moisturizing Guerlain Abeille Royale Renew & Repair Serum Part two of the Abeille Royal system this serum is rich in moisture, This serum is amazing if you feel your skin is looking tired or sluggish. After a week of using the two steps together, I noticed my skin looked fresh, radiant, and just firmer overall.
Moisturize/Glow Dr. Strurm Glow Drops My skin always looks a bit dull this time of year so I love adding in these glow drops for a bit of a boost. I stocked up on another bottle yesterday during the Cos Bar Fall into Beauty event.
Protect Supergoop Unseen spf 40 My go-to face SPF for the colder months. It doesn’t slide, or pill.
A blend of press samples and items I’ve purchased.
