Lena Talks Beauty skincare routine - neutrogena, goodness, la roche-posay, seed and soul, clinique, garnier, instanatural, avene, and dermalogica

My current skincare routine – winter 2017

It has been FOREVER since I’ve written what my daily skincare routine is. This year I have tried really hard to stick to a consistent routine, of using 1 product until I finish it up. When I first started being sent products to try for my blog, I’d be using new things every week. My skin did not enjoy chopping and changing so much, especially considering so many of the products weren’t right for my skin type. Since sticking to a consistent routine, my skin has really looked so much better. People often say that you need to stick to one brand of skincare which I don’t believe in. I use products from La Roche-Posay, Neutrogena, Garnier, Clinique, Dermalogica, Avene, Goodness, Seed + Soul, and InstaNatural. Now, onto my skincare routine: I typically do not cleanse in the morning as my skin is dry, so I try to reduce opportunities to dry my skin out. I just rinse with water in the shower and move on to moisturiser. Some people say you should wear sunscreen every day but I am honestly outside for about 15 minutes on weekdays and that’s at like 8:30am and 5pm so not exactly peak sun exposure […]

Lena Talks Beauty empty beauty product review, skincare hair and body products

March +April Empties

March and April  was a bumper month for empties, particularly on the skincare front. Some of that was because I threw out some products that I wasn’t crazy about, and others was because of I have been trying to only use one product from each category at a time. My friend Victoria does that and her good habits have been rubbing off on me and stopping me from turning into someone on Hoarders. This post includes brands such as Simple, Garnier, Neutrogena, Schwarzkopf, Goodness, Palmer’s, La Roche Posay and more!

March and April empties

This post combines my empties from March and April, since I didn’t get the chance to write a post at the end of March. I finished or decided to throw away 9 different items over those two months, from makeup to skincare, haircare, body and more. The empties are from Models Prefer, Essence, Real Techniques, Za, La Roche-Posay, and Lush. Get ready for a long post, because I have a lot to say about them – maybe make yourself a cup of tea, I’ll be waiting right here.

Daily Skincare routine

My skin has never been great, and the last few years that has been particularly true. I’ve been trying every skincare product under the sun, especially because I’m lucky enough to get a lot sent to me, but I haven’t had any great success. Finally, I said enough was enough, and I needed to develop a consistent daily skincare routine. This routine includes products from Skinfood, Trilogy, Cetaphil, La Roche Posay, Antipodes, and Clinique.
