What's On Your Beauty Shelf?




Name: Lindsay G  
Department: Marketing
Skin Type: Combination Normal to Oily (with a tendency to break out!)


Morning Skin Care Routine:
I like to keep my morning skin care routine as quick and easy as possible! I start with cleansing my face with the Purifying Gel Cleanser – the salicylic acid really helps keep my skin clear throughout the day and it smells absolutely amazing, which helps wake me up! I follow with the Purifying Tonic. Working in the skincare industry, we all know how important Vitamin C is, so I never forget to apply 15% Vitamin C Serum. After letting the Vitamin C absorb into my skin, I apply B5 Hydration, some Eye Restore and finish with Oil Free SPF 40+. This is the best facial sunscreen I have ever tried. It lightly hydrates and doesn’t make me break out. Plus it works really well as a primer for my makeup!
Evening Skin Care Routine: I spend extra quality time on my skin in the evening. My go-to cleansers in the evening are the Purifying Gel Cleanser or the 10% Glycolic Cleanser* when I am broken out, however I am OBSESSED with the new Cyto-luxe Cleanser since its recent debut. This cleanser has it all – it smells great, cleanses perfectly, leaves my skin feeling soft AND removes makeup. I have started incorporating the Cyto-luxe Cleanser into my routine about 2-3 times per week. Normally, I use Purifying Tonic after I cleanse, but sometimes I use the Clear Complexion Pads when I feel like I need something a bit stronger. Every other night I apply Renew Serum and wait at least 30 minutes for it to absorb. This serum is my savior. It has evened out my skin and really leaves my skin glowing in the morning. If I am broken out, I apply Clear Anti-Blemish Treatment and will apply Healing Gel if I’m recovering from a break out. I then apply Oil Free Moisturizer and Cyto-luxe Eye Cream and head to bed.
Hair Care Routine (or Makeup): My makeup routine in the morning is quite like my skin care routine – quick and easy! I start with glo minerals Under Eye Primer, the light-reflecting pigments in this product lighten up any dark circles I have and then I apply my Concealer Under Eye. For foundation, I use either Pressed Base or Loose Base depending on what type of finish I’m feeling for the day (semi-matte or dewy). I dust on some Shimmer Brick in gleam using the amazing Texture Brush, add a little blush, and finish with Water Resistant Mascara.

Can’t Live Without Products: I have seen such great results from  Renew Serum that I would be heartbroken if I had to live without it! The Clear Complexion Pads are also a must have for me – a powerful product that’s also great for travel. Healing Gel is also one of my favorites because it does it what it says – it heals! It speeds up the recovery process post breakout and reduces redness so my breakouts aren’t as noticeable.  Oil Free SPF 40+, Brunette Dry Shampoo and Water Resistant Mascara are also always with me.
