My Winter Skincare Routine!

It’s definitely starting to feel like winter around these parts, so I decided to share my updated winter skincare routine!

IA-SCRUB4detail

First step in my day is using this baby! I love this stuff, I know you’re not supposed to exfoliate every day… but I kinda do. I water it down quiet a bit so it’s just a little scrubby. It’s saved my face a few times.

6802535_320x385This is my new moisturizer and I love it! I finished my Infinite Aloe moisturizer and needed a new one, so I figured I should get something super moisturizing for the winter. I’m usually very sensitive to new skin products, but Neutrogena has never let me down! This one is great, it’s pretty thick and super creamy, and you only need a little bit for your whole face.

deepCleansingPoreStripsAnd of course… my new favorite thing to do… pore strips. I use these once a week and loveeee them. Everyone makes fun of me when I have them on around the house, but that’s okay.

What are your go to products in the winter?

Infinite Aloe RxRenew Microdermabrasion Cream Review!

Another Infinite Aloe product!

IAmicroderm

This is another one of Infinite Aloe’s higher end skin care products, here is a little more about it:

“RX Renew Microdermabrasion Cream is the answer to your exfoliation needs. It is formulated with bamboo to remove the dead skin cells from the top layer of your skin.

This allows your vibrant skin cells to come to the surface and shine. It also stimulates those cells to reproduce more healthy skin.

It is also full of anti-oxidents and emoilents to sooth your skin for a fresh feeling you can’t get with any other microdermabrasion cream.”

Directions say to use this products once a week, which is what I did. This product has the consistency of a cream, and no scent besides that normal lotion smell. I found that the particles were very small, more like a normal exfoliator. The particles in the Infinite Aloe scrub were bigger. It doesn’t feel like other microdermabrasion creams that I’ve tried, it’s not as harsh and my face doesn’t feel as tight once washed off.

I really like this cream, I don’t know how well it does as ‘microdermabrasion’, but it’s a great exfoliator. I still use it every week as part of my new skincare routine.

Infinite Aloe Gold Anti-Aging Formula Review!

IAfacialmoisturizer

Another Infinite Aloe products for you guys today! And I LOVE this one! Here’s a little about it:

InfiniteAloe Gold’s NanoDelivery System delivers all of the most advanced anti-aging ingredients and Aloe Vera to form the most comprehensive anti-aging cream on the market–by leaps and bounds.

Use it day and night to defeat fine lines, wrinkles and age spots.

Advanced Deep Hydration allows the ingredients to penetrate the cellular walls and delivery vital life giving nutrients.

SlowRelease technology gives you ’round the clock moisture and tightening.  It is most effective on your face, neck and hands–or where ever your aging is most evident.”

Where to begin? How about the product itself? Well, it’s very thick, thicker than any other moisturizer/lotion that I have ever used. Its so thick that it kind of plasters my eyebrows down lol kind of like a brow gel haha. You only need a little bit, I scoop it up with one finger and that’s enough for my entire face. It it clear in color and has a floral scent, nothing overpowering. It absorbs very quickly, feels lightweight once its absorbed and moisturizers awesomely. Once I left it on for like 20 minutes before doing my makeup and oh ma gawd guys! My face felt so great! haha

I only use it in the morning after I wash my face, I let it sink in then go on to do my makeup as usual. I haven’t seen any difference in age spots or wrinkles… because I don’t happen to have any at my ripe old age of 24.

I’ve been using this every day since I received it and I really love it. I’m super impressed with Infinite Aloe skin care in general… really good quality and great for sensitive skin. I had zero bad reactions to their products.

I do want you guys to be wary… this is a very pricey product. I honestly didn’t even know the price until I grabbed the blurb off of their website, and I was pretty shocked. As much as I love the product, I wouldn’t spend that much money on any kind of skin care, but if you’re not opposed… go for it! For more info, along with the price, check out the Infinite Aloe website.

Infinite Aloe Advanced Formula Skin Care Review!

I’ve got some lotions from Infinite Aloe today!

IAlotions

From left to right: Special edition, original, fragrance free

Consistency of these is a little thicker than your average cream, thicker than Philosophy Hands of Hope for example. They are non-greasy and absorb really quickly.

The main difference between these is the scent. The original has a jasmine scent, its nice and floral but not too strong after it is applied. The special edition has an interesting scent.. it has a strong almost oatmeal bath smell (like the ones you took when you had chicken pox) but also an underlying scent that’s hard to place. I want to say that it’s floral but a manlier floral, kind of like a floral aftershave or shave soap. The fragrance free has no fragrance but it does have a scent.. it smells like that oatmeal bath also.

Overall I really like these as lotions, I use them on my hands after I shower. You can use them on any dry patches, or all over the body. I wouldn’t suggest using these on the face, especially ones with fragrance. I find myself gravitating toward the original… really love that one!

You can find out more about these, including ingredients and price on the Infinite Aloe website.

Infinite Aloe Scrub Review!

Disclaimer: This item was sent to me for review

I love a good scrub, and now that I wear makeup every day, I definitely need more of that deep clean you get from a scrub.

IAscrubIAscrub2Here is a little about the product:

“Most scrubs leave your skin dry and ravaged like a bad night out on the town: you thought it was going to be good but after a few hours you feel kind of worse. Not so with InfiniteAloe Skin Care Scrub. 

That’s because we love your skin with deep moisture while you are cleaning away the dirt, grime and old skin. You’ll be feeling fresh and new.  Most people use it daily for a week and then maintain with a once-weekly application.

It’s also made in the USA, cruelty free and uses organic Aloe Vera!

Here is a list of ingredients and directions are:

Moisten fingertips and carefully apply with a gentle circular motion, especially on areas where you have clogged pores.

Massage thoroughly then wash with warm water.

Let’s start with the scent. At first, it’s a strange scent and pretty strong, but when you take it our of the tub it actually smells a little choco-minty, kind of like Lush’s Mint Julep lip scrub, but less sweet. The texture is pretty thick, like a paste, but spreads easily onto the skin. It feels like a microdermabrasion type of product, lots of particles. It does not get foamy when you add water to it, or when you rub it into your skin, it’s purely a scrub.

As far as the claims go, I have to say that it definitely did not dry out my skin! I was pretty pleasantly surprised! My skin felt soft and very clean after using this. I didn’t use it for a week straight, instead just once a week, but I might try it out for a full week and see what happens.

Also, you get a lot of product. It’s 4oz, which doesn’t seem like a lot but that tub is pretty darn big when you get your hands on it. You don’t need that much when you use it, so I can see this lasting me for a long while.

So, I really like this scrub! It does the job without totally drying out my skin, so if you have dry skin, I’d totally suggest trying this! You can buy this on Infinite Aloe’s website, it retails for $40 for 4oz, but right now it’s $30.
