July Favorites - Skin Care!

I’ve been slightly obsessed with finding a new skin care routine for the past month. I’ve found some really great products, so this month’s favorites will be all skin care! My favorites this month far and away are from Ole Henriksen. I’d love to hear what’s on your favorites list this month!

makeup remover and cleansers

I’ve found my holy grail makeup remover in Clinique’s Take the Day off Cleansing Balm! It removes spf, long wearing foundation and stubborn eye makeup easily. For cleansing after my makeup removal, I have been using Ageless Derma Glycolic Anti Aging cleanser, Own rejuvenating cleanser and REN micro polish cleanser.

My favorite toners are Thayer’s alcohol free rose petal witch hazel and Clarins Chamomile toning lotion.

I am obsessed with REN glycol lactic radiance renewal mask and Ole Henriksen’s enlighten me skin tone corrector! Both have given me a noticeably brighter complexion.

serums

serums

Serums are my favorite part! I’ve found each of these to be soothing and beneficial to my skin. I use NOW Rose Hip
Seed oil (see my post on the benefits of Rose hip HERE), Own Renewing firming silk concentrate, and the best serum I’ve ever used Ole Henriksen’s pure truth activating oil.

I’ve been using Own refining moisture night cream for months and love its gentle formula. Ole Henriksen’s sheer transformation moisturizer is a new obsession. I’ve been using it during the day under my makeup. It sinks in immediately and creates a beautiful semi matte canvas for my foundation.

What are your favorites this month? I’d love to hear in the comments below!

Review - Own Renewing Skin Care

I recently joined iFabbo, which is an amazing company bringing bloggers/vloggers together with the latest and greatest companies with innovative products. I was thrilled to receive my package which included Own Renewing Firming Silk Concentrate and Refining Moisture Cream.

 

The Own Skin Health Renewing line is Dermatologist tested, paraben, sulfate and retinol free. The Own regimen was clinically tested to improve skin by firming, evening out skin tone and making skin softer and smoother. I love the fact that this line is Gentle, has minimal ingredients and is EFFECTIVE!!

 

My skin is sensitive and finicky. I tend to react either by breaking out or getting raw and irritated if my skin doesn’t like a product. My face was dry and irritated before I started using Own Renewing. I use the Own Renewing Firming Silk Concentrate twice a day. I pat it on when my face is still moist from washing it. I use about 4 drops for my face and neck. It comes in a generously sized bottle with a dropper, which is very hygienic and easy to use.

It feels like something between a facial oil and a serum. I love the way it sinks in immediately and leaves my skin calm and soothed! I’ve tested this under my makeup, and it works great!

 

The other Own Renewing product I received is the Own Refining Moisture Night Cream. I was super excited to try this! I was hoping it would be soothing and gentle to my overly sensitive and dry face. I wasn’t let down! The cream comes in a jar, from which I take a bit out with a q-tip.

The cream is dense and soothing, sinking in immediately. It leaves my skin feeling rather pampered, which I love!
I actually tested this under my foundation on a particularly dry skin day, and it worked wonderfully!
 

My skin has been plump and happy, without the dryness and irritation I had before the Own Skin Health. I’ve had no problems with break outs or any kind of reaction. ULTA began selling the Own products last month. Have you given anything a try from this line? I was looking at the cleanser yesterday at ULTA. I’m kind of kicking myself for not getting it. The ingredients looked great! Oh, something else I didn’t mention. Price is a concern for most people these days. I know I can’t afford to fall in love with a $150 night cream! Own Skin Health is priced well below what I would have expected for such a luxurious product with such nourishing ingredients!

 

I’m curious about your experiences with Own Skin Health, so please leave questions and comments below! If you want any more information about Own don’t hesitate to contact me. Have a fabulous skin day!
