It’s been a few months since my last Current Skincare Loves post because after my huge skincare extravaganza/buying spree this past spring I was just working my way through and testing those products. Recently though, I’ve gotten a couple new things I’ve been loving along with a product I’ve had for a few months but am only just now realizing how much I love it.
Starting with the oldest product in my collection, I’ve been absolutely loving the Glossier Soothing Face Mist. I got this back in February - winter isn’t really the prime time for testing out face mists, so I thought this was nice enough, but wasn’t doing any cartwheels or anything. But come summertime, I have become addicted to this. I use it every morning after cleansing (it really wakes you up), and then I throw it into my work bag to be able to spritz it up throughout the day. It’s got rosewater, aloe, and glycerin in it, so it feels so nice and really nourishing on the skin. This has been great when feeling overheated as it really does calm and soothe the skin. And I’m a sucker for anything containing rosewater/roses - it takes so much of the redness out of my skin.
Going in order of application, my next current favorite is the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum. I had heard so many raves about this, so I just had to see what the fuss was about. It really works to hydrate the skin and for me it sinks in quickly without getting sticky. Serum is a step I never really skip, and this one has slotted into my routine nicely. I also really like the scent as well - it reminds me of something nostalgic, but I can’t think of what!
Lastly is probably the thing I was most excited about when I got it, the Kate Somerville Goat Milk Cream. I was realizing I didn’t really have a good moisturizer for day to day, and I was getting sick of trying to slather on my night moisturizer in the morning before applying makeup. I finally bit the bullet and parted with my cash for the Goat Milk Cream and I couldn’t be happier with that decision. It really is probably my favorite moisturizer I’ve ever tried. It does an amazing job at plumping up and moisturizing the skin, and I’m always surprised at how smooth my skin feels after using it - since it has goat milk in it (obviously), it also contains lactic acid which gently exfoliates the skin. It feels really lightweight and sinks in easily without being greasy, and yet it keeps my skin feeling moisturized all day long. My skin has been loving this and drinking it up lately, and I already know it will be worthy of a repurchase.
