Weekend skincare!

I like to slow things down (a tad) and give myself a ‘break’ on the weekends. This includes my face.  I don’t consider myself an ‘abuser’ of my face but since I do love makeup, the weekends are a time to either use less or not wear it at all (if I can bear it).  I thought I would give you a peek into what I use to clean my face  on the weekends.

Let’s start with skincare:

1. Cleanser-The Body Shop’s Nutriganics foaming facial cleanser.

The Body Shop's Nutriganics Foaming Facial Cleanser

I have only been using this for about a week but so far I do like it. It’s gentle and gets the job done-removing makeup and dirt quickly.

2. Toner: Lush tea tree water

Lush Tea Tree Water

This product was brought to my attention by Paola, who did a guest post on it on my blog!  I like this-I mist it on after cleansing and let it sit.  It doesn’t make my skin feel tight and dry either.

3. Yes to Blueberries Age Refresh serum

Yes to blueberries

I didn’t know anything about serum until I read Kristen Ma’s (co-owner of Pure and Simple Spa) book, “Beauty, Pure and Simple.”  Since then I have been using it religiously. I tend to use the Pure and Simple Brand but ran out and needed a quick serum fix.  I found this product after doing some research (reading other blogs) and it seems to work well.

4. Jurlique Sun Lotion

Jurlique Sun Lotion SPF 30

This is a MUST for me now.  After being a ‘sun-child’ (hey it was the 80’s everyone was doing it) and a chronic tanner, the damage has shown up considerably on my face.  Since I now take better care of my mug (facials, microdermabrasion, peels)….I am religious with sunscreen application.  I got this lotion at Pure and Simple and although I love it, it was too much $ and I will probably never buy it again!

5.  Stila Tinted Moisturizer

Another product that I have done a blog post about is the Stila tinted moisturizer! I have to admit, it’s starting to grow on me, although I thought I would NEVER ever not have foundation on!  This has been my staple on weekends where I am just kind of hanging out.  If I do figure that I need more coverage, I go back in with a liquid foundation in specific spots.

And there you have it…the weekend routine!

What’s your skincare routine on the weekend?  Do anything special like masks?
