We made it! Happy Friday, everyone. I was able to snap a bunch of outfits this week (doesn’t always get to happen). A highlight of the week was attending the Create & Cultivate x Clinique luncheon–it’s always great to see my fellow Chicago bloggers as I never get to attend events. Also, if you saw on IG stories, my Ordinary skincare arrives (four items totaling $32…I know) and it’s only been a few days but a $9 retinol is amazing in itself. I promise to give a full report. It’s mostly sold out at Sephora but I snagged mine from Beautylish. Here’s what I ordered and why:
- Hyarulonic Acid – water-based serum, good for AM and PM. Plumps the skin. Helps skin absorb products. Oh, and it’s $6.
- Lactic Acid – Honestly, hoping this is a replacement for Sunday Riley Good Genes (which is amazing). I alternate this with retinol and only use at night. (Use sunscreen during the day!)
- Granactive Retinoid 5% – I dipped my toe into retinol this summer and I’m not turning back. This is an amazing price and hoping it’s my new go-to at night. (Use sunscreen during the day!)
- Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% – lots of words I don’t understand but basically this is a Vitamin C serum that I use in the morning to promote brightening. I’ll take that.
And just a PS, I am still loving my Tula skincare – I use the cleanser, illuminating serum, mask and moisturizer in tandem with all these products! Use code SEEANNA for 20% off. (It’s not sponsored – but I love working with them because I’ve actually been using the products for months now!)
