Happy December, friends! I feel like I say this every month, but time is flying by! I am officially moved back to the east coast and the hubby will be here in two weeks! I am so glad we will both be settled in by Christmas!
Now that the holidays and winter are officially upon us, it’s the perfect time to switch up your skincare routine. The season and weather change calls for paying special attention to your skin’s needs. I’ve heard before that just like you switch up your wardrobe for the seasons, you should also be rotating your skincare products as well. Along with adding in a good moisturizer to combat dryness, I wanted to share two products from Alba Botanica® that I’ve been using a lot lately.
Until now, I had never tried any Alba Botanica® products, but once I tried out these items and learned about their brand, I became a big fan of their company as a whole! Alba Botanica® is a brand full of body-loving products to care for your hair and skin. Their products are all botanically-based and 100% vegetarian (score!). Their mission is to “Do Beautiful” and make high-quality beauty products while keeping the Earth happy and healthy.
To start, I’ve been loving the Acnedote™ Face & Body Scrub. It is a dual purpose scrub that’s effective on the body, yet gentle enough to be used on the face, too. I’ve used it in the mornings and it feels so refreshing! The scrub uses salicylic acid and willow bark extract to fight existing, and prevent future, breakouts. It’s prefect to rid your skin of oil, dirt, and any dead skin – the perfect product for the sometimes harsh winter weather.
Next, I’ve been trying out the Fast Fix™ For a Pimple treatment. I love how it is slightly tinted, which helps conceal any blemishes. While it conceals, it also fights breakouts with willow bark extract and other ingredients in its oil-free formula. The product is tiny and portable and easy to carry with you!
These products have been on repeat for me lately and aid in keeping my skin clear. Even if you don’t have regular breakouts, I think products like these are great to have on hand, not to mention that the scrub works well as a regular cleanser! Both are affordable and easily found at stores such as Walmart and Target.
Besides making some great products, another amazing effort that this brand is a part of is its #DoGoodDoBeautiful campaign that awards two female-led organizations $15,000 to create or expand a specific project within their organization. Alba Botanica® wants to help women achieve their dreams and goals, and celebrate “doing beautiful” in the world.
Those are just a few products that have made it into my skincare routine recently. What are some of your favorite products lately? Do you have any new faves? Let me know in the comments. I hope you all have a great weekend! xo.
