I received these two Skin&Co products in a sample box recently. Mostly, I want to talk about the TRUFFLE THERAPY SERUM which is absolutely wonderful!

I’m still in Winter mode although it’s technically Spring. Here are some of my favorites this month. Inglot palette: I went to Inglot at the beginning of March and put together this little palette that I’ve worn most of the month.

My favorite products this month. Lotion Yon-Ka – Dry Skin Toner: My aesthetician swears by Yon-Ka, a French skincare brand, and sells the line in her office. I use a few toners/waters in rotation depending on what my skin needs. I use this hydrating one in the morning which contains Lavender Oil, Geranium Flower Oil, Rosemary Leaf Oil, Cypress Oil, and Thyme Oil. Buy from Dermstore here with free
Badger makes all natural and organic products for the home and body. I love their little balm tins. This sleepy time balm is made with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Castor Oil, Beeswax, Bergamot, Lavender, Rosemary, Ginger and Balsam Fir. I like to rub a little on my lips and pulse points before my head hits the pillow. Check out their other balm formulations and the entire range here. Badger Balm
Happy New Year! Here are a few of my favorites for January. Dew Me Moisturizing Makeup Setting Spray by Urban Decay: Having dry skin, I prefer to use a spray rather than powder to set my makeup.

I try to mask my face regularly every Sunday night while watching Downton Abbey or any of my favorite Sunday shows. I also use a hydrating mask before any special event. I’m a huge fan. My philosophy on masks is it’s an important component to include in an overall skincare regimen. While you may not notice huge results after one use, their benefit comes from ongoing use over time.
