Makeup Monday: Recent Skin Care
In case you've never noticed, skin care is kind of my thing. I absolutely love trying new products to see if they fit in my routine. Today, I'm going to talk about some recent skin care products I've tried.
Michael Todd Blue Green Algae Antibacterial Toner
Spoiler alert: this toner is amazing! This is really great for acne prone skin. It is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. My skin has been looking pretty good (if I do say so myself) since I started using this.
Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Tone Perfect Eye Gel Creme
Well, that was a mouthful. I love hydrated eye creams, and this one fits the bill! It's pretty thick but absorbs quickly into my skin. My under eye makeup has been looking better and staying on longer with this.
SOBO Skin Care ULTRA Age Repairing Cream with Resveratrol
This is the latest moisturizer I've tried. This was sent to me by the company, via Brandbacker. I've been using it for a little over a week, and I'm already sold on it. This cream has resveratrol in it, which is found in grapes. It promotes cell renewal. In the past, I've had amazing results with products that contain it, so I was quite eager to try it. It's quite heavy, and my skin loves it. My skin is combination/oily and dehydrated. It needs all the moisture it can get!

Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate
This is a recent Birchbox sample. Shiseido is a brand that I hear a lot about, but I haven't tried a lot of their products. This is one of those products that you have to use for a while before you see results. I can report that it smells good, feels good, and it hasn't broken out my skin. It's supposed to protect your skin from stress (internal and external). Two thumbs up so far!
Indeed Labs Hydraluron
I've mentioned this before and wanted to mention it again, since I recently started using this every day. This is hyaluronic acid, which basically attracts all the moisture to your skin. My skin absolutely loves it. Like I said before, my skin is dehydrated so I moisturize it as much as I possible can without looking like a shiny oil slick. This helps my skin to absorb my moisturizer even better.
What skin care products have you been enjoying lately? I am such a skin care junkie, I'd love to hear about your faves!
Linking up with Molly and Carly.
