Daily Stuff

November 16, 2012 • Style

i’m not what you’d call high maintenance, but i have come to cherish my daily routine in the bathroom. i used to hate taking off my make-up at night and i never really cared for special products or treatments – thinking i was too young to have to care. so yeah, that excuse wasn’t going to hold forever. and then i discovered some truly amazing products (full disclosure: as i occasionally write about beauty products for magazines, i was sent a lot of these products to try out) that made me change my mind entirely. i now love pampering myself with creams, gels, serums, masks and scrubs.

the products pictured are a few of my current favorites – most of which i love because of their fantastic smell or awesome texture. i was sent a lot of bigger luxury brand items as well, but i found myself turning to these specific products over and over, so i thought i’d share them with you. i don’t have specific addresses where to get mac, nuxe or dermalogica, but if you’re ever near a kiehl’s shop, i strongly urge you to go in and enjoy the full experience. and as for ren and by terry: i love going to cosmeticary in antwerp or brussels (which also sells diptyque and essie).

as seen in the pics: mac mineralize volcanic ash exfoliator (it’s black! it’s awesome!) / dermalogica daily microfoliant / ren purity cleansing balm / nuxe sérum crème fraîche, crème prodigieuse nuit, crème fraîche, contour des yeux prodigieux  / kiehl’s over-night biological peel and midnight recovery concentrate (both of which i urgently need to stock up on when i’m in new york this month – i love their manhattan shop by the way) / by terry sérénité de rose mask
