This April, tarte is sharing their Skincare Routine promo where you can get 2 skincare products for $45 to create your own 2 step skincare routine in a flash using code MYKIT! As you know, I’m super loyal to skincare products and very particular about which ones I use since I think good skin is the foundation to better makeup, but after researching these products, I was so impressed that I said YES, let me try them out a few weeks and then if I love them, I’ll share them with my readers. Since I know everyone has different price points, but wants great results, I thought this two for $45 promo was a great time to give you the deets. Today’s post also includes…a video to help better explain how I use these products and why I love them.
Also, you can still use code SHAY15 for 15% off (not to be combined with MYKIT).
Here’s a look at everything I tried…
…from body care to a pre-workout routine, AM products and PM products too!
You can watch me chat about these skincare products (let’s be real, gush about them), in this video here…
Here’s a little breakdown of each product from the video:
I have been loving the combo of the tarte KNOCKOUT texture & pore refining pads with the tarte MARACUJA oil for my pre-workout routine! You can, of course, use these products in the evening too, but they both really wake me up and get me (and my skin) going early in the morning before I hit the yoga mat, gym or street to run. The MARACUJA oil is also great for dry skin (it’s working so well on Madeley’s little dry cheeks!), hair, cuticles and more. Plus, it smells like an orange grove. I love it!
For the last two weeks, I’ve been using this combination in the morning after my shower and before applying my makeup. The Rainforest of the Sea serum packs a bunch of healthiness to my freshly washed skin before I add my moisturizers. I love that it has collagen in it. I really feel like products with collagen not only brighten up my skin, but plump and firm it as well. The SEA wink of H2O is the perfect eye cream for both morning and night and goes really well underneath my Shape Tape concealer (no heaviness, stickiness, greasiness or smudging). And then, I top everything off with the drink of H2O which is super hydrating and moisturizing yet light as can be since it’s more of a gel than a heavy cream. It goes great under my makeup or in the evening as part of my nighttime routing. Speaking of which…
…in the evening, I have been using both the SEA wink of H2O and drink of H2O along with a great retinol (always, always use a retinol!!! You won’t believe how much your skin improves after using it at night!) and then I’ve been adding a little layer of Sleep Retreat on top of everything for that extra boost of hydration over night.
I looooooove to take a bath or shower at night, scrub myself clean and then apply a delicious moisturizer. This duo here: Awake Sugar High and Sugar Rush Cake Butter is amazing together! One scrubs you all clean and then the other, gets you hydrated better and moisturized.
Here I am all moisturized and ready for my makeup!
And here I am, ready to conquer the day 🙂 . Great skincare means you really don’t have to use a lot of makeup.
Now, don’t forget my favorite eye shadow palette…
…seriously, I bet this is one of the top five questions I get each and every day “what eye shadow are you using?”. It’s this right here!!
All dressed and ready to conquer my day!
