Hi again, everyone! I am so excited for today’s post because I am teaming up with one of my all-time favorite shops for all things natural beauty related, IntegrityBotanicals.com. They carry tons of incredible green beauty brands, which include some of my all-time favorites such as May Lindstrom, Osmia, Mahalo, Kypris, and Josh Rosebrook.
My skincare routines change pretty frequently, and I have been wanting to share my updated night routine with you all. In the evenings, especially these days, I like to keep my routine pretty quick, but still luxurious. I like to focus on things with amazing textures and that smell amazing to get my brain to relax and wind down. The products I am sharing today are all fairly new products to me, but all quickly made their way into the “holy grail” category.
We have to talk about this little jar of green goodness. This Mahalo cleanser melt concentrate is beyond amazing. From reading the reviews, I did think I would like it, but I truly didn’t know how much I would love it. It is a stunning color, the packaging is beautiful and practical, and the scent is out of this world. I don’t know how to describe the smell except that it is a mixture of citrus and cocoa. That may not sound like the most amazing combination, but trust me, it is.
The texture of this cleansing concentrate is like silk! I take a dime-size amount and massage it in circular motions onto my face and in upward motions onto my neck. The massaging combined with the scent puts me in the most relaxed state, ever. It is perfect for evenings. When I am done massaging, I rinse with warm water and immediately when it comes in contact with water, it turns into a milky cleanser and washes off leaving my face baby-butt smooth. This cleanser is $70 which is pretty steep, but this jar will last you for such a long time. You can also order a sample of this balm HERE.
Immediately after cleansing, I will spray a toner, but those vary from night to night. My favorite right now is definitely the Regenerating Toner from Leahlani. While my face is still damp from the toner, I apply this Luna hyaluronic acid serum from LIVE Botanical. This has a water-like consistency and my skin just drinks this serum up. If you are wanting to add in some incredible anti-aging products into your skin routine, I highly recommend anything with hyaluronic acid and this serum is great!
After using a serum, the next step is usually a thick night cream or balm, and right now I am head over heels for this LIVE Botanical Blue Tansy Balancing Balm. I am a sucker for anything containing blue tansy. This little tin has taken the place of my well-loved blue cocoon from May Lindstrom for now, but that will always be one of the greatest products of all time in my eyes. You can order a trial size of the blue cocoon here.
The texture of this balm is absolutely incredible! Just like the cleansing melt concentrate, the texture feels like silk. My skin, along with my nostrils, truly love this super moisturizing balm. On the plus side, the LIVE Botanical balm is only $28!
The last step in my night-time beauty routine is definitely one of the most important ones. I love slathering oils and body lotions on my skin right before bed. This Night body oil from Osmia Organics is the PERFECT last step before bed because it smells like a lavender field. NO JOKE. Sometimes body oils can be hard to massage in if your skin isn’t damp, but that isn’t the case with this one. I use this even in the day sometimes too, it’s that good. I have had this product for a few weeks now and as you can see not much is gone and that’s because a little bit of this oil goes a long way. The full size is $64, but they also have a travel size that’s only $20.
That is all I have to say for now, but thank you all so much for reading this post! And thank you to Integrity Botanicals for collaborating with me on this post. I highly encourage all of you to check out their online shop! I hope each and every one of you have a wonderful rest of your day.
