Happy birthday, linkup! <3 This month marks one year of My Favorite Things, the linkup for all the things you love. Thank you so much to everyone who submitted and made mine and Eirene‘s little idea into a success. I hope to keep seeing all of your faves in the future, and discovering even more awesome stuff!
After last month’s skincare linkup, I decided to try out a few new products. I don’t have many steps to my routine, and I don’t hoard a lot of products, so I figured I could afford to spend a little more on products that I love and work well for me. Here are the latest additions to my skin (and hair) care!
Clarins Gentle Care Skin Beauty Repair Concentrate
I’ve heard so many good things about this Clarins serum for sensitive skin for years. I finally gave it a try and the reviewers were all right; this thing is amazing! It’s calmed down any minor skin flareups I’ve had. It is very pricey, so I only use this on spots that need them.
Alpha Hydrox AHA Souffle 12 Percent
I wanted to do mild chemical peel, but my mom recommended that I try Alpha Hydrox first. After a few days of using this at night, I definitely saw a difference. My skin looked smoother and brighter. Combined with my Clarins serum, my skin has never looked better.
Agadir Hair Products
Agadir is another line that I’ve heard great things about. I also don’t hoard a lot of hair products, so I feel like I can afford to splurge on this. First off, the shampoo and conditioner smell HEAVENLY. It’s a very clean, kind of powdery scent. It’s not overbearing and it does fade, so in my experience you can only smell it in the shower. They’re both sulfate-free and paraben-free which are perfect for my color-treated hair. I also have the hair serum for after blow drying.
That’s it for my super quick post! I’m about to go to bed because I’ve had a looong day here in New York, but it was a ton of fun! More on that soon. For now, here are the rules (more like guidelines) if you’d like to show is what you’ve been loving.
