cheers to Friday...
For this weeks Friday Favorites I have chosen the items I have been most frequently grabbing while in quarantine, especially for my self care Friday!
Ok. This is hands down my favorite everyday scent EVER. It has such a nice light + airy smell that isn't overpowering, smells clean, fresh + is a great scent to tone down overpowering perfumes. Lately, since we aren't leaving the house + I don't need to wear my nice fragrance daily, I have been using this on my self care days when I need a bit of a mood refresh or want to feel pampered.
Fun fact! Jo Malone scents are meant to be paired 5 or more at a time!!
I have tried quite a few different scrubs + Frank Body takes the win for best coffee scrubs NO DOUBT! Not only are the vegan, clean, cruelty-free + have the best packaging, the product does exactly what it says it will. This one specifically is meant to hydrate, firm + exfoliate. The grapeseed + coconut oils leave a really silky soft hydrated feel to the skin. The jojoba beads and coffee grounds stimulate blood flow to the skin while exfoliating leaving a smooth, refined glowing bod. I've tried + love all of Frank's scrubs but their OG scrub is a must-have!
Another go-to product for me but I especially love using this mask on self care days because its a thick formula that feels incredibly gentle + hydrating on the skin. I also love that I can use this as an overnight mask if needed because it doesn't clog pores + absorbs nicely into the skin with no leftover unpleasant feeling. Thanks to the coffee seed oil + goji berry extract my skin is brighter, visibly more awake and has a much healthier glow to the skin after using.
Fun fact about eye creams, we actually shouldn't use them! Creams can be very comedogenic for the small oil gland under our eyes so using a gel eye cream like Biossances' won't irritate these little glands! Of course, everyone is different and if you have an eye cream you love, keep at it! I have a few I love to use that are cream as well but this is a great option for repairing + hydrating the skin around the eye without clogging pores. The gel consistency offers a bit of cooling, spreads evenly into the skin without having to warm or work in for long periods of time.
Mad Hippie uses the vitamin c derivative, SAP (Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate), which is a very stable form; because of this the product lasts longer + doesn't oxidize as quickly. The product itself absorbs really nicely into the skin without leaving any film or residue (even when used with primer), has a powerful blend of antioxidants so you are receiving more skin benefits than solely vitamin c.
