skincare highlight: philosophy

there's hope!!!!

so I gave my face lotion to my sister, and decided to make a trip to sephora.
I also decided, to start really caring~~ no more cvs brands~
finding the right product will do the trick: I'm obsessed!

I have dry skin.. I never thought my face will feel like a baby's butt at this age..
but that was because I never tried this:
it's so thick it's hard, you have to melt it with your fingers.
instantly, it's like a drink of water for you skin and it's so soft.
even when I wash my face in the morning, I sometimes forget to reapply because it lasts.
with other products, my face would feel tight and dry after washing.
however, if you're not as dry as me, just try the normal hope lotion.

the second standard thing to get is eye cream.
this one is supposed to get rid of dark spots (for me)
and I dab it on hank too for getting rid of puffiness. it also helps prevent wrinkles.
 just a tiny squirt will do the trick~

for me, I have sun spots and broken capillaries.
I'll look into laser for the latter, but I'm hoping this will work for the freckles~
this box includes a dark spot corrector/brightener cream,
and retinoid pads for that extra boost.

then I got some free samples:
kelli @ columbus circle location is really lovely, please look for her if you can~

serum - she told me to wait a bit before trying,
so as to not overwhelm my skin with too many new products

 she was able to try this on me at the store because I came in bare faced.
my skin started peeling right away for two days, and it's gentle and fresh!
it's so easy to use and you just wipe the pad on your face and let it stay for just a few mins.
you don't turn red or anything like that.

can't forget a good cleanser~
I'm waiting to finish my current naive japanese brand before I try the sample.
she says this one is so good that you don't even need toner afterwards.
I'm excited to run out~

I know some of you have been asking for skin care so hope this helps*~*


  1. the cleanser is awesome! it gets makeup off it!

  2. Have you heard of Birchbox before? For $10/month you'll get a mystery box in the mail every month filled with sample goodies! I have found 4 new skincare products thanks to this monthly treat. Not to mention new shampoo, cool jewelry, sweets, make up... They mix it up all the time! You should check it out. I love getting that bright pink box in the mail every month!

  3. Oh man! I wish i read this post before my trip to sephora a few days ago where I resorted to my same old products! Def will give these a try. Thankss
