The Bachelorette: Lashes and my skincare routine

Tuesday, August 8, 2017

Why is it that I just can't stop with The Bachelorette?! 

 I barely watched this season but I felt compelled to watch the finale and I couldn't go to bed until I saw who she picked.  I wasn't invested in any of the guys but watching the short time that I did I was all TEAM PETER!!  

And my favorite part was during their goodbye and she was bawling so much that her eyelashes fell off.  Because I know it's TV but come on, she was soooo done up every time I saw her and I loved seeing her real lashes and what she really looks like.  And even through the tears I thought she looked so much better after she cried all her makeup and lashes off!  

I was thinking R & F girls must be shouting at their TVs trying to get her to use lash boost, because truth be told, her real lashes needed some help.  And I've heard many girls rave about it.

But since I'm trying to use fewer chemicals and don't want to spend $150 for my lashes I've been using an Eyelash Serum ($11.95 on amazon) and Lavender every night.  I brush on a little Majestic Pure eyelash serum oil on my lashes before bed and put a few drops of lavender (which helps with healthy hair growth) in my mascara.  

my camera battery was about to die so the blurry pic will have to do!

I finally love my skincare routine and totally recommend the products I'm using so I'm going to share with you in case you want a little change in your routine.  My skin is normal, not oily & not dry.

And this post is in no way sponsored by Aveda, although I would love it to be!  However I am using affiliate links, just FYI! 

My facial cleansers:

(keep watching on Target.com the price changes a lot it's usually cheaper than in the store!) 
 My Aveda facialist recommended it and I love it- not drying at all.

I used to use R & F Reverse scrub and I like it but wanted to try the YL scrub since it's half the price. 
It smells good and my skin is soft after using it.

Makeup Removing Cloths: Burt's Bees sensitive wipes 
(and today they are $2.99- the cheapest I've ever seen them!)


Now the products that I love and look forward to using every day!!! 

 It's kind of weird that I look forward to my skincare routine but they smell so good- a natural smell, not chemical smell.  I feel so much better not using all the chemicals that are in most skin care and instead using plant-based products.


It's so smooth and I love to apply it first after I was my face.  And the pure-fume oils that are in it smell so good. 

It's formulated to help even skintone and brighten your skin.  I definitely have freckles and sun spots so I chose this serum.  There is a Soothe Concentrate for sensitive skin and a Firm concentrate for aging skin (which I need too) but I have been using the Bright and love it!

In the morning I follow that with R & F Soothe SPF 30.  I still use this because a lot of SPF makes my face break out and this doesn't.  And who wants to experiment with that, not me.  

If my skin is feeling dry I'll apply Burt's Bees Sensitive day moisturizer.  

BUT Aveda just came out with a new Tulasara Morning Creme and I can't wait to get it!  My facialist said that since I love the Tulasara Wedding Masque (more about this in a minute) I will love this!

So I will be getting the morning creme ASAP!

But in the evening after I remove my makeup and use the YL satin mint facial scrub I use the 

I love it!  It's thick but not greasy at all.  It brightens and firms and I love the smell.

I had a sample of the AVEDA Tulasara Wedding Masque Eye Cream and loved that too!  But for now I'm just finishing up my R & F multi-function eye cream.

I am looking for a toner to add too.  I still have R & F Reverse but I feel like every time I use it I can taste it- weird right.  That can't be good...

What are your favorite skincare products?

  1. I love using Thayer's rose petal witch hazel as a toner. It's alcohol free, smells amazing, and leaves my skin feeling so fresh! But I feel like the biggest game changer, was adding a drop of Frankincense to my face lotion each morning and night!

  2. I wasn't aware the Aveda had a skin line, I only knew about the hair line but makes sense because the hair line is wonderful ! Thanks for sharing !

  3. Oh my gosh. You are so right about the whole Bachelorette thing. My daughter sucked me into it with her about 1/2 way through. You are also cracking me up talking about all the R+F girls dying over her lashes because I am one and swear by my Lash Boost. I'd want it on a desert island with me...LOL. Looks like you have a great skincare routine. Have a great weekend!
