AUGH! So as much as I have been talking about how much I loooooove fall, there are definitely a couple things I do not love. For one- I have terrible allergies and I have just gotten the first bronchitis of the season (I have COPD and asthma). Ow. Two- My skin started getting flaky and dry. I managed to nip that within about a week, thankfully. I went to Sephora one afternoon and talked with one of the specialists about my concerns. She loaded me up with a few goodies that I am in love with. Here are some of my faves-
I am obsessed with this mask. I use it at least once a week and I always feel like I’m starting with fresh skin afterwards. I have started needing to avoid the really dry patches to avoid irritation but it’s still doing wonders for my skin! I get it from Sephora
(I bought the mini and it’s lasted over a month).
I was given some deluxe samples from Sephora
and am still using it over a month later. Once or twice a week is plenty and I alternate between the regular and the sensitive skin formula. I’m definitely going to invest when I run out of the sample, but for some reason, this thing seems endless.
Here is my new obsession-
Chanel Resynchronizing Collection
Before you scoff that this crap is expensive; it really is. I’m not made of money. I got travel sized samples on Ebay and apply them after washing my face so that a tiny bit goes a really long way. So far the minis have lasted over a week and have about another two weeks in sight before I need to purchase another travel size set. If you’ve got the cash, you can get the full sizes at Nordstrom. I may do that with my tax return next year. Or I may take a trip. But so far, this stuff is making my skin ridiculously soft.
And on to another Halloween throwback… This is another reason my skin is crappy in the fall. Zombie make-up wreaks havoc on skin and removing it is a real bitch. I think this is the first year in forever that I’m not zombifying and I’m kind of sad that I’ll miss out, but my skin is not disappointed.
