Weekly Skincare Routine

Every Saturday or Sunday when I am relaxing I love to do my skincare ritual to get ready for the week ahead. Sometimes it is during the day, sometimes before bed. Here are some of my favorite tools. I posted this on Instagram a few weeks ago and I will finally go through my routine for you guys below!


My weekly skincare routine:
  1. I wash my face with my current favorite cleanser and my Clarisonic Cleansing System. 
  2. Then, I (carefully) shave my face with a Tinkle Razor and Marula Beauty Oil
  3. I then use my Tria Age-Defying Eye Wrinkle Correcting Laser, which is amazing! 
  4. I roll my face after that with my Ora Microneedle Age Roller System, which provides SO many benefits.
  5. Then, I PMD my face all over (this is my favorite part), with this personal microderm kit. I use the sensitive discs.  
  6. I relax with some oxygen eye masks, then..
  7. I end it all by slathering my face with my favorite night time face cream

Let me know if you have any questions about details!
I would love to know what your weekly routine is!

April Beauty Empties


Living Proof Flex Shaping Hairspray - This stuff is amazing! I love the 3oz size because it it cheaper and perfect for travel. I like the smell of it - reminds me of art class as a child for some reason. No sulfates, which is good for my tape in hair extensions, and a light hold that I feel doesn't build up.  

Zim's Max Crack Creme - I love this for night time on my feet!! It was created by a pharmacist, so this stuff is legit! I recommend it for anyone with dry, cracked heels. 

Pink Sugar Perfume - I love this perfume, not only because it smells like cotton candy and super sexy, but it is the only thing I can wear around my Mom that doesn't bother her allergies! It is such a playful, but romantic scent and I always get compliments on it whenever I wear it anywhere! 

Josie Maran Pure Argan Milk - This stuff is SO good!! The smaller size is cheaper if you want to try it, but I think you all will love this. It is a hydrating treatment serum that you use on your face under your regular moisturizer or night cream. It is light feeling and fresh. It absorbs really easily too.  

ABH Brow Wiz Dark Brown - Cult fav of course, I love my ABH brow products. I actually like this thinner pencil better than the thicker one. It creates hair like strokes better than the thicker one I feel like.  

Up & Up Makeup Removing Cleansing Towelettes Evening Calm - For less than $4 at Target, these are my favorite night time makeup remover wipes. They make me feel fresh, I never break out, and I only need to use 1 to remove all of my makeup. This is a purchase I will always repeat! 

Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Sleep Lavender Chamomile Pillow Mist - I am such a light sleeper, and I have a whole routine I do before bed to try to get relaxed. This is something I use every night to relax me and I love it! 

Vaseline Spray Moisturizer Aloe Soothe - LOVE this stuff! Good for after sun lotioning, but mostly I love it because I can be lazy when it comes to lotion after I shower or bathe. So, instead of having to rub a thick cream all over yourself, you just mist yourself all over! It can be cold sometimes, but it is just so easy, smells so fresh, and I love it.  

Enjoy Hydrating Conditioner - Perfect conditioner for tape in hair extensions, because there are no sulfates in it, which can be bad for the tape. The packaging has changed as you can tell from the link. I am going to actually repurchase this right now!!!  

Estée Lauder Advanced Time Zone SPF 15 - If you have followed me for some time now, you know I love these skin creams for day and night. They can be expensive, but I like to look for deals that include free gifts with purchase. They have never broken me out, and I think they really help my skin stay youthful looking.  

L'Oréal Visible Lift Foundation 149 Buff Beige - This is one of my favorite drugstore foundations. The color is perfect on me, and it includes retinol, vitamin C and SPF in it for your skincare needs.

What did you use up this month at your house? 
Share with me! 

Hope you enjoyed this post!

My Spring Beauty Favorites

You guys!!! I love Spring, and all of the bright colors, light fragrances, and pretty things. I pulled a few faves to share with you guys!!





Click below to shop these items online! If you cannot see them on your mobile device, open in a browser here.

Leopard Clutch: Perfect for all of your makeup, to carry for a night on the town as a clutch, or to use in your purse! This is an awesome price, too. You will probably be seeing this one a lot on the blog.

Shape Tape: Have you heard of this cult favorite concealer yet? It has super great coverage for anyone who has a lot of discoloration or under eye bags! I use the color Light and Sephora does not carry this item!

Blush Brush: This is hands down the most beautiful makeup brush I own. The brush itself has hints of pink, is super soft, and the handle is a beautiful pointed rose gold. I have had it for a while, but I have been reaching for it a lot lately!

Perfume: This is going to be my SUMMER SCENT guys. I love love love this. I actually got a sample of it in an online order and I had to have it. It smells like the beach mixed with vanilla and it is just sexy and flirty and fun! You have got to try this for yourself.

Blush: Bobbi Brown created a hit with this blush. I love it for all seasons, but especially for spring and summer to add more color to my face. And this is a great size.

Mascara: I have always heard good things about this mascara, so I am so happy I finally got to try it for myself! It is the perfect amount of pigment and curl and length for your lashes. I love it!

Pink Lipstick: You have to get a good pink lipstick for spring! I love this Tory Burch lipstick that I purchased at a Nordstrom Rack a couple of months ago, but I don't think she makes makeup anymore!! I am so sorry! Check out this lipstick that is on my Sephora wishlist instead. #57 is beautiful and is what Reese Witherspoon wore in the show Big Little Lies!

Also, I found the exact Gold Tray online, but I can't find any in stock!
Click here if you want to keep your eye on this one!

I hope you like this post, let me know what your recent faves are!

XOXO,
Gretchen

Instagram Lately

Happy Monday! I hope you all have a great week. I wanted to round up some Instagram looks I have posted lately for you guys!

San Clemente Outlets Look: This backpack by Henri Bendel is so adorable! Shop the look below! Don't forget to use the right arrow and OPEN up the blog in your browser if you don't see the images below in your email program. Necklace is same brand, but not exact. Want to know a secret? The photo was taken outside the restroom!! They have the PRETTIEST bathrooms at these outlets! I had so much fun shopping with my Mom last week. AND we got over 10K steps in that day!


Flight Day look! James and I went flying to Chino (Flo's Cafe) for breakfast, and it was a beautiful and fun day! Get the look below! Top is exact! Sandals are old BCBG, but I posted some similar ones that would create the look.


Flight to Utah to see friends! Ok, so maybe wearing these booties wasn't that smart because I had to take them off in the TSA line even though I have PreCheck! But it was a pretty comfy flight outfit for a short flight to Utah a couple of weeks ago! 


Northern California Snow! James and I attended a family wedding up north last weekend, and got to drive up and see some gorgeous snow and scenery before the ceremony. All items below are similar! So fun to wear a big wool hat!

I hope you enjoyed this round up post!
Do you have any fun plans this week?

XOXO,
GretchCannon
