MONTHLY QUICKIE: Favorite products of February


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.

CURRENT ROUTINE: Oily skin in the winter


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.
