#LOVINGLATELY: LANEIGE + MARIO BADESCU

we are in the height of summer in the metropolitan area and my skincare routine has taken a drastic change...and so should yourseveryone's should change w/ the seasons, for that matter.

I'm the first person to get in the sun w/o applying SPF. (I know, I know. how ignorant of me?) sometimes it's just absentmindedness when I'm packing my beach bag, but whatev. with that being said, the laneige water bank moisture cream is my life saver. fun fact: it was an allure best of beauty award winner in 2016!

it's the -wettest- face moisturizer I've ever used and I will say that created my one complaint: it left my skin kind of sticky & shiny, and with my oily skin type, that's not ideal. BUT good news is that this lotion gives a natural, dewy look all sun kissed cheeks deserve.

other products I’ve been trying this summer:

mario badescu vitamin c serum - after my last facial @ mario, I left w/ a handful of samples, this vitamin c serum being one of them. it's meant to brighten skin, while softening it and enhancing firmness & elasticity.
mario badescu glycolic gel - this lightweight gel helps speed up skin production & prevents blackheads! (psa: don't use this if you use any kind of medicated topical skin products.)
lorac pro matte lip color - I love that the finish is matte, but the formula is packed w/ vitamins c & e which are nourishing for your skin so lips stay soft.
