Welcome to the first post in my monthly QUICKIE series, where I talk about products I’ve been loving for the past month and products I want recommendations for! Some of my favorite products this month include a Japanese cleansing oil (I have seen the light!), a Glossier product I finally made work for me, and a drugstore mascara everyone has been talking about for months.
I’m sure we’re all familiar with how winter tends to wreak havoc on your skin, no matter your skin type. Of course, I have oily/combination skin and live in Northern California, where “winter” means that it’s about 50ºF and sometimes it rains, so I don’t have to deal with wind-chapped lips and cheeks or anything too serious. But I still like to get my hydration on.
I’ve actually found that even though my skin is oily, keeping it well hydrated with effective products (read: not just a ton of super heavy creams) helps to balance out my lovely face oils.
