Fiesta Friday: links I love and things to celebrate

things to celebrate happy weekend links

I might be living under a rock but I just found out what skin essence is last week – has anyone tried one?! There seems to be a lot of types with varying functions including hydration, creating a more even skin tone, etc. I’m interested in this one from The Body Shop, the benefits seems nice of course and I’ve used Body Shop products in the past (like their Tea Tree Oil Facial Wash which I love!)

How to have an awesome weekend WITHOUT spending any money!

Skin Savers

Like most people, I’m not blessed with naturally radiant and flawless skin – luckily, I’ve found a few golden skin products that I couldn’t live without! Growing up in San Diego I’m used to a bit of humidity which keeps my skin from drying out. When I moved to Utah for school (BYU), my skin went crazy dry, especially in the winter! I currently live in Utah so these are products for me are must-haves! What are your skin savers?

SKIN SAVERS

Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Facial Wash (for oily skin) – helps prevent blemishes, easy on your skin.

Witch Hazel – at any drugstore also available on Amazon – tones skin, 100% natural!

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion (online or also at Ulta) – acne spot treatment, best acne product I’ve tried that doesn’t break the bank.

Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Charcoal Mask – shrinks pore, feels super clean without being overly dry

Gold Bond Rough and Bumpy Skin Cream also available on Amazon – after trying about a dozen lotions specifically made for dry skin, this one was the most effective and I had much softer skin within a few days.

Clinique Take the Day Off makeup remover – the most efficient makeup remover I’ve tried that doesn’t require a ton of product to remove mascara, eyeliner, etc.
