October Skincare Essenties

Happy Monday babes!  I had absolutely no idea today was a holiday until I tried to go to the post office this morning {whoops}, so YAY for those of you who are off work and got to sleep in this morning!  :)

I wanted to talk skincare today, and let you know about some new products that I'm using, and old faves that I'm still digging.

One.  So Dr. Brandt discontinued my all time favorite face wash {Lineless Foaming Cleanser}.  Fortunately, you can still find it online for now.  So if you're like me, and you loved this STOCK UP!  In the meantime, he replaced it with this XYY Dual Fusion Water {product info here}I tried this out last month and I'm not sure what I think of it yet since I LOVED my old cleanser.  This isn't really a face wash, its more of a makeup remover / toner combo.  It states that you don't need to wash your face after using this, however my face doesn't feel totally clean so I still feel the need to sudds up afterwards.  I do like it as a makeup remover though...still on the fence about this one.

Two.  I still use Kate Sommerville CytoCell {view here} everyday for well over a year now.  I practically cry every time I have to repurchase it since it's so expensive, but it is sooooo worth it.  I absolutely can not live without this cream.

Three.  Clarins Liquid Bronze Self-Tanner For Face {view here} is the perfect product for extending your summer glow well into Fall.  I love the nice natural bronze that it gives my face and that my sensitive skin can tolerate this - no breakouts yay!

Four.  I've posted before about Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream {here}.  For me, it's an absolute must have.  I apply it every morning before dabbing on undereye concealer.  Take my word, this miracle in a jar is the sh*t. 

Five.  Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Vitamin C Youth Activating Oil {view product info here}.  This is a fairly new product for me.  I received a sample of it at Sephora this past summer while I was staying in Vegas.  The dry Vegas climate is terrible for my skin and I needed something to combat the dryness.  I have been obsessed with it ever since!  I pat this on after I shower prior to applying regular lotion.  It smells wonderful {just like a spa!} and I love the dewy glow that I get after applying!  Plus its loaded tons of vitamins, minerals + fatty acids that brighten, repair, and nourish your face.....oh, and it fights wrinkles too {bonus!}.

Do any of you girls currently use these products?  Leave a comment below, and fill me in on what skincare products you can't live without.  xx
