Everyday Beauty

How long after trying a new product you love, do you decide that you want it to be a part of your routine, forever?

Because that’s how I’m feeling about this Everywhere Multi-Cream. I wish I could describe the things that this cream does for my skin. I feel like all I talk about these days is my skin and lips being dry from my acne treatment, but guys, this dryness is real.

I have a LOT of creams and moisturizers that I love, but a lot of them are super thick and greasy (because that’s what I desperately need right now). This means that they don’t work too well under makeup- that’s where Everywhere Multi-Cream comes in handy. I mean, I’ve used it for only a few days and I’m hooked. It’s thick and creamy, but it absorbs very quickly, doesn’t feel heavy at all and my skin actually stays hydrated. Let’s be real, when you’re dealing with extremely dry skin, to the point where it’s peeling, it seems like your skin just soaks up every bit of moisturizer or cream you put on it, and it still stays dry. Not with this baby. I also use it on my hands, mix it with my foundation for a light coverage- I’ve got nothing but love for it and it’s already become one of my “everyday” essentials.  It’s like I wake up, looking forward to putting this on my face.

Also, I couldn’t make this post without mentioning my favorite SPF which is this one by MD Solar Sciences. If you hate greasy SPF creams/lotions, you will fall in love with this one, trust me!

Ever since I started Absorica I also started to experience something I’ve never experienced before: dark circles under my eyes. I swear that unless I went like two days without sleep, I never had to deal with dark circles. Now, I wake up with them every single day. I don’t know if it’s because the drug is making my skin thin or because I feel very tired and fatigued all the time. Point is, concealer is one of my best friends at the moment. I love MAC Pro Longwear (talk about an OG), IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Illumination and, of course Urban Decay’s Naked concealer.

The good thing about decluttering, is that you get to discover and find some things you forgot you had. Like this little Lorac Pro Matte palette. So small and compact and perfect for everyday use, it has everything I need. Not to mention that Lorac eye shadow formula is one of my favorites.

IT Cosmetics Brow Power is great for that “everyday” use- I’m not used to rocking Instagram brows to the office so a little definition is all I need. Speaking of definition, Chanel Volume de Chanel is still one of my favorite mascaras, but I’m itching to try something new. I currently have over 20 mascaras and I’m getting rid of a bunch of old products. So, if you guys know of any new and good mascaras that you love, let me know!

For years and years I used that think that when it came to foundation, the more coverage it gave me, the better it was. It’s really interesting how my relationship with makeup has changed over the years. Right now I still use a lot of products, but I try to go for the opposite effect- I want to look as if I wear little to no makeup (at least when it comes to my “everyday” routine). I just want it to be on a natural side. For that, I love Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, L’Oreal True Match and Guerlain’s Baby Glow foundation.

What are some of your favorite “everyday” products you reach for on regular basis?

  • Ooh lovely pics! I’m always looking for a lightweight SPF, so I’m definitely intrigued. And that Lorac palette is so cute… not that I need one, but you know… just in case!

  • I have the same love-at-first-use with makeup! It’s either a yes or no after the first use. I just tried a new foundation today and have already added to my everyday routine! :)

    • Awesome! Love finding a good product :) Which foundation is it?

      • It’s by Youngblood! I decided to order it online and it was worth the gamble, ha! I did a quick post a few days ago about this new love of mine ;)

    I’m definitely gonna have to give the multi cream and the SPF lotion a go because I never use and lotions/moisturizers/creams/etc because they’re always just so greasy! I don’t mind it so much on my legs, but the only lotion I’ve found to use for my hands and arms is the EOS lotion because it actually soaks into your skin instead of staying all greasy!

  • My HG mascara is the YSL Babydoll. I test a lot of mascaras but I always go back to that one when I want big dramatic lashes.

  • If I don’t like something I know straight away, but it takes me a bit longer to work out if something is going to be a forever keeper

  • I just started testing out a Givenchy mascara that came in one of my subscription boxes, but it is really too early to tell :) It does have a crazy shape of the brush, though.

  • Oh how I wish IT cosmetics was available here, everyone raves about their concealer!! Have a lovely weekend :)

  • The Everywhere Multi cream sounds perfect and just what I’ve been looking for! I really love the Bye Bye under eye, so I need the Illumination version too! I rotate my makeup a lot but the past few weeks I’ve been loving the LA Girl HD foundation xx

  • I used to only wear full coverage bases and nothing else but as I’ve got older I’ve noticed I do still wear full coverage but sometimes I like lighter bases like the IT Cosmetics CC Cream.

  • it only takes me max a few days to decide whether I like a product or not, but I make sure to give it a longer try for skincare products to see if it actually makes difference :) I need everywhere multi-cream! Autumn&winter means extra dry lips and hands for me so it sounds like it would be my saviour :)

    • Oh yes, with skincare products it can take a bit longer to work that out, but that cream just blew me away! Just tried their lip balm too and it’s even more amazing!

  • I’ve never had to deal with dark circle so I’m really thankful for that! I never have to use concealer under my eyes even for full face makeup xx

  • Have you tried L’Oreal Butterfly Sculpt mascara yet? I have been liking it and I also am a HUGE fan of chanel’s le volum (my favorite high end mascara). I was iffy on the Loreal one, but it’s pretty awesome!
