30 day beauty challenge: day 25

Goodbye 2011, Hello 2012!

It amazes me how quickly the year has gone by. I have been thinking lately, about the highs and lows of 2011. I am choosing to focus on the highs: I met some great people, went to a bunch of amazing concerts with great friends, met some celebrities I adore, traveled to Las Vegas and London, took part in an amazing internship, and started this blog!

For the first time in a long time, I feel focused and ready to take on the future. I feel optimistic and positive. 2011 was pretty good, but I think 2012 is going to be my year.

There aren't too many days left of the 30 day beauty challenge! As interesting as this challenge has been, I will be a bit relieved for it to be over! Until then, here is the challenge for day 25: Beauty Regime. When it comes to my beauty regime, I don't know that I do anything all that interesting!

I wash my face with Clean&Clear Morning Burst facial cleanser every morning, and use the Dermaglow Triple Action Eye Lift rollerball underneath my eyes, before I begin my moisturizing and makeup routine. Before bed, I use Garnier's makeup removing wipes to take off my makeup. After that, I use Dermaglow's Advanced Eye Therapy underneath my eyes, and Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation Moisturizer on my face and neck. I usually watch my hair every other day with Herbal Essences Hello Hydration - it smells so good! I also try to exfoliate my skin once a week.

What kind of beauty regime do you have?
Have a great New Year!

  2. I exfoliate my skin once a week with Clean && Clear Morning Burst. At the end of the day, I cleanse & remove my makeup with Epielle Makuep Removing and Face Cleansing Tissues in Green Tea or Cucumber. Before bed, I apply my Bliss Daily Detoxifying Toner and Nuetrogena Oil Free Moistre SPF 35.

  3. Happy New Year!.I use apricot face scrub at night to wash makeup off of my face.Kind of scared to try anything else, because my skin is so sensitive and dry.I use Johnson's baby oil gel in the morning to keep my face from looking dry when I apply my foundation makeup.My next step is working on the dark circles under my eyes from no sleep this semester.Do you know what I can get for that? Does concealors usually work?

  5. @Modest Admiration For under eye circles, I use an eye cream in the morning and before bed. Concealers absolutely work. I use Urban Decay's 24/7 concealer in DEA. It is a stick, so the consistency is really great for covering under eye circles. Hope that helps!

  8. Happy New year Shannon and to everyone here!!

    You're right, the most important is the skin cleansing. I think that to get a nice skin it's primordial to remove all traces of makeup up to let the skin breathe. Never go to bed with makeup, or stay longer than necessary with makeup. A healthy food is also very important.
