5 Skincare Picks to Scare Away the #SundayScaries
Hey! I am Caterina from @thecosmeticcritique on Instagram, and I take skincare Sunday very seriously. It’s my favorite way to get ready for the week! Here are some of my tried and true products that ensure my skin starts off the week on the right foot.
$40 USD/$52 CAD
Before masking, I like to cleanse and tone my skin. Lately, I have been using this Vitamin C Face Wash. It smells like oranges, and leaves the skin feeling really clean, but not stripped. What more could you ask for?
$28 USD/$34 CAD
After cleansing, I tone my skin with Caudalie Vinopure Natural Salicylic Acid Pore Minimizing Toner. This has been a staple in my skincare routine lately as it helps to reduce the appearance of pores and has helped control my oil production.
Caudalie Instant Detox Mask
$39 USD/$47 CAD
I use this detox mask as a first step to reduce congestion, oiliness, and clean out pores. As with all Caudalie products, it features a grape derivative, called grape marc which detoxifies, in addition to pink clay and coffee which are the two ingredients which really help to clear pores. Think of this step as a vacuum for your skin.
Herbivore Blue Tansy MASK
$48 USD/$60 CAD
I usually use Blue Tansy because it’s a wonderful, gentle chemical exfoliant. Its tell-tale ingredient is blue tansy oil, an ingredient high in azulene, which is anti-inflammatory, and soothing. This mask contains both AHAs and BHAs derived from papaya and pineapple which are what help to exfoliate the skin.
Farmacy Coconut Gel Sheet Mask - Hydrating
$6 USD/$8 CAD
I always finish off my masking routine with a sheet mask, my current favorite is this hydrating superhero! This mask is packed with coconut water, hyaluronic acid, cucumber extract, and Farmacy’s signature Echinacea GreenEnvy™ which is a powerful antioxidant. Not only is the mask really saturated, but there is also so much essence left in the pack when you remove the mask that I keep it in a pump jar to use during the week!
