Let me start by saying HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY LOVAS, whether you participate in the celebration of love or not. Now, I definitely don't have anything against February 14th, in fact I love scrolling through Instagram or my Vogue feed and reading Valentine's themed memes… On that note I am also a firm believer in that we do not need a designated day of the year to show both ourselves and those in our lives extra love. Besides the fact that I splurged and ate half a box of pink frosted sugar cookies (ooopps), today is no different or better a day than tomorrow to be kind to yourself - but if you absolutely need a reason to indulge, then by all means commence Valentine's Day!
As for my February 14th plans, I've got a hot date with my rose scented Voluspa candle, bath tub, and the fabulous skincare products pictured above - all of which are focused on achieving moisturized, baby soft, hydrated skin for a night of complete relaxation.
First, I'm going to cleanse my skin and then layer on Glossier's Moisturizing Moon Mask. After 10-20 minutes I'll rinse off the mask and apply Glossier'sSuper Bounce Serum, which contains hyaluronic acid that plumps skin up with moisture and Vitamin B5 for added elasticity, resulting in an extra soft complexion. Next I'll layer Glossier's Priming Moisturizer Rich - AKA an EXTRA luxurious and soft moisturizer that acts as an Anti-Redness Complex and an Oxygenating Agent. Finally I'll spritz the Soothing Face Mist all over, so my face not only smells like roses, but is extra hydrated from the rosewater and aloe mixture.
Oh and since it is Valentine's Day I thought I would include the perfect routine for extra kissable lips to end the night:
- Apply Sephora's Rose Lip Mask to prep
- Follow with Gossier's Balm Dot Com for an extra hydrated and soft canvas
- Finish with Glossier's Generation G Matte Lipstick (I chose Zip) and/or lipgloss
Now you have the ultimate guide to achieving both a relaxing Valentine's evening and extra moisturized skin, because it all starts with the perfect canvas am I right?
WAIT there's more! You can also shop my Glossier page for 20% off all products pictured (except the candle and Sephora lip mask, of course) at Glossier.com/reps/michaelabreaux , so treat yoself - and if you're feeling extra kind then treat a loved one too xox
