My belly and heart are full from Thanksgiving festivities yesterday, Face Freaks.
Today's still life from several weeks ago shows the fifth night of prescription retinol use in a row. To begin the #pmroutine I double cleansed with #thebodyshop 's Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter and #damesanddimes ' Chocolate Orange Cleansing Balm. Both of these are no exceptions, must be removed in the @carolinehirons ' method with a warm damp washcloth. Then I used P50W 1970 #acidtoner by #biologiquerecherche . I spritzed with wonderful smelling rosewater #hydratingmist , and immediately applied three thin stripes of #deciem 's #niod Copper Amino Isolate Serum (I'm sure excited for those of you who bought CAIS2 at launch! I myself have a big bottle of CAIS to go through first. But I'm looking forward to the new version being happier to play with acids!) and rubbed them gently in all over, including eyes. Then I used three drips of NIOD's MMHC2 and #Hylamide 's SubQ Anti-Age, which I pre-mixed. (Second rabbit trail: show of hands for how many of you scored something(s?!) fun from Deciem's #blackfridaysale ?! I maxed out my five purchase limit. And I am so grateful and thankful to Deciem for keeping things fun and accessible. I just love their brand!) Soooooooooooo, back to the routine ...after my concoction, I started my eye treatments: #lashserum , NIOD's FECC on my left eye and Hylamide's SubQ Eyes on my right, and #firstaidbeauty 's 5 in 1 #eyecream (a little dry, but not unpleasant, and softly rose-scented). I slapped some Tretinoin 0.025% on my face, then used #misshakorea 's Time Revolution Night Repair Ampoule as a last step for moisture. Can I say how impressed I've been with Deciem's Hand Chemistry? It's a bright fragrance, but most importantly, it is the best moisturizer I've ever used. It's lusciously creamy in a thick way. My hands have never had such a good season change. If you weren't aware, Deciem put it on two of their Black Friday packages. Highly recommend!!! - 3 hours ago
