“Beauty is only skin deep”
I know we've all heard the saying and although that kind of beauty may only be skin deep, I still think it’s so, so important to care for your skin!! I often have people ask me what my skincare routine is and, trust me, I know that there are a TON of products out there that you need to wade through to find the TRUE gems (sounds kind of like men….KIDDING). Soo I thought I’d put together a post to divulge my beauty secrets and give you a list of all my favourite go-to beauty products that are tried, tested, and true, or rather, I've tried & tested them and just can't get enough!! Because really, sometimes I discover new products that I’ll give a whirl (I mean, what lady doesn't?), but I always find myself coming back to these ones.
Oh! And when it comes to my skin, I really feel like it’s worth it to splurge a little and pamper myself. You know….just because I’m stuck with it for life ;) So, these are the 11 products that I absolutely swear by! Most of them I use every day, aside from the May Lindstrom mask, which I only slather on once a week & the Murad exfoliator that I use 3 times a week. And if you haven't heard of or used the amazingness that is the Clairsonic, I recommend that you become acquinted with it. Between being on camera and shooting for Love It Or List It, I typically have to wear more makeup than the average gal and I find that this magical little device leaves my skin squeaky clean every single time! And one last thing that I almost forgot...I see Dr. Braun at Vancouver Laser & Skin Care Centre for Microdermabrasion treatments once every 3-4 months. Keeps my skin glowing!!!

I always LOVE seeing what products celebrities use!! I also love my Clairsonic!! Have you ever used any Rodan and Fields products? They are absolutely AMAZING! I love the Macro Exfoliator (It sucks off over 5 million dead skin cells in ONE USE!!): https://bregister.myrandf.com/Shop/Product/AAMEX01 I look forward to reading more of your blogs!! I have always been a HUGE fan of yours!!
Woo hoo!! Love hearing what products people swear by! Which do you use in the am and which in the pm? Any suggestions on which order to use them or why you use them? Def going out and getting some but need to figure out which to start with! Ps the text verification before you post a comment hates me. Just can't seem to get it right ;)
