My Skin Care Journey!

As I began to approach my 30th birthday I decided to step into Sephora with one of my close friends. All of my friends(including my Korean drama netflix friends) use various products and boast about their facial routine.

Side note: I have always been terrified of using products from the store because I don’t understand the ingredients and I can’t come to terms with the unnecessary packaging and its negative impact on the environment.

So here I am wandering aimlessly around the store and a beautiful salesperson asks me if I needed help. I said “actually I don’t own any face products and have no idea what to do”. She gasped and quickly and kindly brought every brand that had the least ingredients and glass packaging. The brands were lovely, they smelled good and looked good! So I went ahead, closed my eyes and bought what I thought I needed to boost my facial routine.

I must say my experience was lovely and I went home and began trying these products! But after two weeks I ended up returning to my Lianna Soap beauty routine. So I decided to share my simple, effective, exciting routine and one product I kept using from my Sephora trip.

Herbivore Lapis Facial Oil & Lianna’s Facial Oil

AM Routine:

+ Rinse face with warm water, then with cold water. Let skin air dry for a few seconds before patting dry-the cold helps tighten the pores(according to my nonna and Korean g-mas)

+Apply Lianna’s Soap Face Oil(Approx. 3 drops). I will be adding this product in my etsy shop by November 2020 and it will be customizable by skin type. My oil consist of rosehip, almond, carrot seed, tea trea, jojoba and vitamin E oil.

PM Routine:

+Wash face with Lianna’s Soap( I use all of my soaps on my face)

+ Scrub using loofah sponge, electric facial scrubber, brown sugar scrub etc.(no matter which I choose I try to scrub my face around 4x a week)( advice from the matcha latte man with flawless skin was to scrub every day! But do what feel right!)

+Apply Lianna’s Soap facial oil (approx. 3 drops) or when I feel like being fancy…I use Herbivore Lapis Facial Oil it smells and feels wonderful. This oil is pricey but I understand the ingredients, feels nice on my skin and a little goes a very long way 🙂

I’ve decided to keep my routine simple because it not only works for my skin but is also better for the environment!
