Renewed State of Mind
Maternity Wear Must Haves
This is the year that I anticipate being most casual and minimal with my hair and makeup.
I never really struggled to find time to get ready for the day with David. I’d do it while he napped, or wake up a little bit before he did in order to get the day started peacefully and quietly. But with two kids? I imagine it may be more of a challenge. I don’t think it will be impossible, but I may just prioritize other things, like SLEEP.
Since I’ll likely err on the side of lighter coverage makeup, it’s important that my skin is healthy. I’m sure you’ve heard this a million times already, but well-hydrated and healthy skin wears makeup so much better than skin that may need a little TLC. Even women with “oily” skin who avoid moisturizers may be making their situation worse. Sometimes skin overproduces oil to make up for being dehydrated. So, a moisturizer, while it may sound counterintuitive, is actually a great product to work into your routine to keep your oil glands in check.
I have dry skin to begin with, and it gets even drier in the winter, plus I’ve noticed a general dullness to it as well. I’ve found a great skin care routine that I really love and has kept my skin nice and healthy, but I’m always happy to try new products to see what else is out there.
The first thing I noticed when I tried philosophy’s renewed hope in a jar moisturizer was how quickly it absorbed into my skin. There is nothing worse than a greasy residue left behind from a face moisturizer, and that is a most important factor that I consider when determining whether or not I like a product. If it absorbs easily and quickly, AND keeps my skin hydrated like it claims, then it’s on track to be a winner.
I also noticed a general smoothness to it as well. I’ve been loyal to another moisturizer for a long time now, but philosophy’s renewed hope in a jar is much better at smoothing out more pores. And if I’m going lighter on makeup, I would love my moisturizer to do a little work too. You can find philosophy on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
So, not only am I happy to share another great product I’ve discovered, but I’m also thrilled to offer a $100 off offer code for philosophy.com! philosophy’s purity cleanser has been a favorite of mine for years and years, and I don’t doubt you’ll find plenty to choose from with a $100 off philosophy offer code.
