It feels so good when I find the right group of products that work beautiful together to keep me looking & feeling on point. My daily beauty routine this month is in love with me and honestly I’m scared to shake it up. It’s the one routine I’ve kept consistent because it’s so hard to create a good beauty routine … like, really good.
7 A.M. • first thing after waking up, regardless if I wore makeup the day before or not but especially if, I do an oil cleanse 2/4 coconut oil & 2/4 tea tree oil before I wash my face with Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser. I always do the oil cleanse because if I skip it, it really can look like all of my makeup is off and I’ll end up sleeping in some of it. After, I moisturize my face with Ponds dry skin cream, with the weather switching up I gotta do extra work to keep my skin hydrated.
If I plan on doing my makeup, I usually moisturize under my eyes with Vitamin E oil stick, and after five minutes my skin drinks it right up.

10 A.M. • I like to moisturize my entire body in Coconut Oil & Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Butter, the two are really amazing used together(if straight out of the shower, before drying off) and on top of that, I spray on my favorite “flowerbomb” by victor&rolf which I’ve been wearing all summer. It’s a romantic floral fragrance and doesn’t clash at all with other scents.
1 P.M. • No need to wear makeup every day so basically I only use Nivea lip therapy balm, I shape my brows with E.L.F brow gel, and I spray my face with my handmade rose water. To be a little extra If need be, I’ll addBare Minerals Lash Domination mascara to coat my top & bottom lashes.
9 P.M. • end of the day, I shower first thing and I’ve been loving this C. BoothSea Salt Body Scrub lately, it makes the skin absolutely smooth. Before drying off (again because its better to lock the moisture in while your bodys still wet) I moisturize with Coconut Oil & Cerave moisturizing cream.
My skin care process at night takes 45 minutes at least so I light a candle, put some R&B on and play that in the background the whole time I do it. (they say “lighting a candle before your beauty routine brings you into a more peaceful and reflective state of mind as well as beautifying your surroundings”, I agree, and blow it out when your routine is finished). I start with the oil cleanse, then the face wash, and next I tone with Apple Cider Vinegar.
I’m excitedddd, this is my favorite part. I live my life for doing a honey face mask. Look, I feel like I get prettier after a honey mask and I do! Every time I put it on my face it improves the texture, repairs & brightens my skin. After 25 minutes with that on I rinse. To finallyyy finish the routine I apply a thin layer of lemon oil to my face before bed, just a dot on a cotton ball and in the morning, wake up + rinse my face with cold water. It leaves my skin feels so soft and refreshed. I can’t see me breaking up with this routine …
