This week I have been in the weirdest funk.. it was one of those weeks where no matter how hard you try to get ready you just don't feel cute. Maybe because I am sick or maybe because my skin freaks out when its my time of the month.
I was frantically tossing everything in my house around like a rag doll searching for my Retin-a and finnnally found it last night and already my skin feels better. I also went out and bought a new face wash last week.. I never buy expensive face washes.. I mean its on your face for a matter of seconds I can't imagine it has time to do much for your skin anyways besides take your make up off and cleanse. I spend more money on toners and creams that have time to work over night.
Since a lot of you ask for my nightly routine I figured I would share!

I kept seeing these "yes to" skin care lines at Target so of course scoured the internet to find out more about them. They have other kinds "yes to berries" for anti aging, "yes to tomatos" for acne, but I found that while all the others (berries, tomatos) received around 3 stars this one (carrots) was getting 5 stars on almost every website. It really is amazing!! I have only used it for a week but my skin feels really soft and clean after, which is exactly what I want in my face wash. And no it doesn't smell bad! At least I dont think so!

Arcona is an AMAZING skin care line! They were sponsors of a few shows at fashion week in September and they were using a bunch of their products on the models at various shows before they would go have their make up done. I got to talk with some of their reps and get samples of all their products and I have kept purchasing 3 of their products after the samples were gone and this is one of them! These toner pads smell amazing and they help minimize the appearance of my pores and clean my skin even further than my face wash. It also helps to clear up blemishes and has vitamins to help nourish your skin. A lot of people don't use toners or don't realize what they can do for your skin, so if you don't use one I highly recommend getting one, you'll love it!

I have recommended this product before and I have gotten emails from readers saying that of all the products I have recommended this is by far their favorite! It really does work WONDERS! I use it every night around my eyes AND every morning before I put on my makeup after I do my sugar scrub. It helps moisturize the skin around your eyes which is soo so important. It is the thinnest layer of skin on your face and needs to be taken care of unless you want to age a lot faster :) so I would definitely say to go get this.. even though it is a bit pricier.. an eye cream is so important if you are 20 years old or older.

Since I have really really oily skin, I cant use heavy creams so I use this serum as my moisturizer for the rest of my face the nights I DONT use retin-a (you sleep with retin-a on your face so those nights I only use my eye dew) This is a serum that moisturizing and is an anti aging serum that will help keep your skin youthful. This is the serum I got for my husband too.. men don't love doing the whole routine like we do so this is a good basic that they can serve as an eye cream and moisturizer for their whole face.
