Skincare Day with Jenna & Jenna!

HAPPY FRIDAY y'all!! What better way to start the weekend then to talk about some skincare? 
Jenna from Mommy in Manhattan & I have TEAMED UP today to bring you a few of our FAVORITE skincare products! I just ADORE ADORE Jenna (and not just because we both have babies named Davis or HAPPEN to have the same name)!!

I am posting on HER BLOG today, so head over there to check it out--but not until you read her fantastic post! I don't think it gets better! 

Take it away Jenna darlin!

I have been really excited to come over to Jenna's blog! I'm a Jenna too and I'm an esthetician. I'm a mother of three living in NYC! Skincare has been my passion ever since I was teenager. I am a huge product junkie and I'm always trying new products. I have found that some of the inexpensive brands are just as good as the medical grade brands and expensive brands. Here is a list of what I use right now and are on my "favorites" list for the summer. I hope you enjoy! Also head over to my blog to enter my giveaway. The giveaway ends Sunday so don't miss out. Come check out my blog! I'm so excited to meet you.

I made a list of my favorite products to use during the day. Enjoy! Please feel free to email me if you have questions for your skin type. mommyinmanhattan@gmail.com

Face Wash - La Roche-Posay Effaclar - This is a foaming gel cleanser. Great for the summer. It will remove all the dirt, sunscreen and sweat that comes with the summertime. It's not drying and it will keep your skin's ph at a normal level. You can now find La Roche Posay products at the drugstore. Jump on this one ladies! It was originally only sold in doctor's offices. Remember, don't spend too much on your cleanser. It's only on your face for 30 seconds. Invest more of your money in products that stay on your face.

Daytime Serum - This is where your money can go. CE FERULIC is the best and most amazing product of all time. This is known to be the fountain of youth. Your skin will change after a couple of weeks on this product. Dark spots fade, the vitamin C is extremely anti-aging and this product works as an antioxidant. Wear this during the day with sunscreen and you will have advanced protection against photo aging.

Moisturizer  -  Emollience is a great moisturizer for normal skin. It's lightweight but still very hydrating for dry skin. It's around $38 which is a great price for a professional grade product. I also love Olay Regenerist. I feel like they give me the same results.
Eye Care is very important!
I apply a vit. C serum called AOX EYES (designed for the eye area) to protect during the day. I then apply Eye Balm if I'm feeling dry too.

Sunscreen  Please Please Please protect your skin! My favorite sunscreen is Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 by Skinceuticals. This comes in a universal tint color which is amazing! It glides on your skin and feels like a light weight moisturizer. You will love it. Never skip on your sunscreen!!

A few favorites for the summer....
So Bronze - air brush tanning, the color is a really pretty golden brown. Comes in an aerosol can for easy application. At night I spray my face, neck and shoulders to add a little color to areas that I apply heavy amounts of sunscreen. This doesn't smell bad to me either. I hate the self - tanners that smell so bad. This is one of the only tanners I can tolerate with amazing results!

These towelettes with change your life. You can get a quick tan without streaking. Second favorite tanner.


Yay for Jenna! Loved that! Who doesn't love learning about new and amazing products? 
(I know I'm not the only PRODUCT JUNKIE out there..right? right?!)

Have a beautiful weekend!
