The holiday season is in full swing and while a big part of this time of year is about giving to others, it’s also important to continue to give to yourself. Yes, treat yo’ self! I especially love the holidays because it truly makes me appreciate the little things. Like a fresh balsam candle, [hands down my favorite holiday scent ;)] enjoying my christmas tree, making a cup of hot chocolate before bed, and treating my skin after a long day. As the weather shifts into cooler temps, taking care of your skin is especially important. That’s why I was so excited when Rodial Skincare was sweet enough to let me test out a few of their new products that have launched recently. My skin was in a bit of a “bleh” stage, and being the skincare junkie that I am – I was definitely ready for a new regimen.
Rodial Skincare specializes in creating products with anti-aging properties along with innovative ingredients that allow for maximum performance. Each product targets a range of skin concerns which I personally love because I can keep a simple skin regimen while knowing I’m targeting all my needs. You’ll notice each Rodial Skincare product has the same Pomegranate Ellagic Tannin scent which not only smells like a dream, but also naturally helps to firm the skin and boost collagen production leading to a more youthful complexion. Even if wrinkles aren’t on the top of your skin concern list, it’s never to early to start the prevention process. After all, most wrinkles are formed from the care you put into your skin at an early age. I’ve began to incorporate the Snake booster oil into my night time regimen, and let’s just say it’s definitely changed the game for me. It has left my skin feeling moisturized and has been the absolute perfect oil to include in my routine. I have naturally oily skin so the thought of adding more oil to my face was definitely a little nerve wracking, but including an oil into your skincare routine has countless benefits so I highly recommend [even for us oily skin gals!] Before a night out, I’ll also apply the oil before make up because it firms the skin in the most beautiful way and really helps your skin get ready for product. When it’s time to unwind, my go to is almost always a face mask. I tend to leave it on for about thirty minutes, so by the time I take it off my skin needs some lovin’. Lately to sort of “soothe” my skin after harsh masks [I have really sensitive skin!] I like to use something with a gel like consistency to refresh my skin with some moisture. I’ve been loving using the Dragons blood sculpting gel mostly because of the dreamy smell, but this product targets the wrinkles and really aids in the anti aging process. The gel forms a skin-like film around the face which basically acts as a shield to reduces redness [which is perfect after a mask] and firms for a more youthful, and plumper skin texture.
Rodial Skincare have also introduced some make up products into the mix. When I first began playing around with the products, I instantly gravitated towards the contouring powder. The universal shade offers the perfect contouring shade for everyone in the game. All of my friends have tested it out while getting ready for girls night, and they definitely approve! Creating killer cheekbones, a slimmer nose, and a more defined jawline is a breeze. Another product I’m absolutely loving is the eye sculpt, this product sort of acts as in two in one. You can use it on your eyes as a shadow, or on your brows to fill them in which has been my personal favorite. It goes on super smooth, and creates a really natural brow which is great for an everyday look. Speaking of an everyday look, the xxl liner has been my personal go to for those quick out the door days. The liner comes in three natural shades which are perfect for any skin tone. Last up on our list is the glamolash mascara, which I have been loving to pop on the bottom lashes for an intense look.
