Current Skincare Loves

Real talk, I'm only writing this post because I was going to include these in my monthly favorites on Tuesday but they would have made my favorites post too long. So I thought I'd talk about the skincare bits I've been loving in their own dedicated post. There's nothing I love more than some nice skincare.

I've still been loving doing a mask a couple times a week, and I've been dedicated to two this month. The first is the Aesop Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque*. I'm so glad I got this because my skin has been breaking out left and right this month (I'm blaming stress). This is really great at cleaning out your pores, like a typical clay mask, but without stripping the skin. I can't use a lot of clay masks because they leave my skin feeling too tight, but this one is perfect. It has a really thin consistency as well that makes it super easy to wash off.

The other mask is one I wrote a full review on, the Tula Exfoliating Treatment Mask*. This is also a clay mask, but it contains lactic acid and beads containing Vitamin E to both chemically and physically exfoliate the skin. This has been wonderful for this time of year, as my skin has started drying out with the use of central heating. This eats away at the dead skin, and because the beads contain Vitamin E and other skin-loving ingredients, it feels really hydrating and leaves the skin soft.

I had a sample of the Belif True Cream Aqua Bomb from Sephora and fell in love with it the first time I used it. It's a really great moisturizer, but it's incredibly lightweight. Since I've got dry/dehydrated skin, I like to let this sink in fully and then apply a facial oil on top, but it would be a perfect moisturizer for someone with more oily skin. It really feels like you're giving your skin a drink of water, which feels so soothing and all-around excellent.

The last thing is definitely something for when you're looking to treat yourself - the Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist. I'll definitely say that I wouldn't spend the almost $50 on the full size (I can't justify treating myself that much), but I've been loving this little travel size. Stay away if you've got oily skin because when they say dewy, they mean it. Again, it's been a perfect pick for my dehydrated/dry skin and keeps it from looking too dull. I like spraying it at the end of my makeup routine to add a nice glow, and it doesn't ruin any of my makeup or make it disappear more quickly.

Stay tuned for the rest of my favorite things on Tuesday! What skincare bits have you been loving lately?
