Ride or Die Skincare Products: September

Invest in your skin, it is going to represent you for a very long time.

I am happy to announce my first monthly review of my top picks of skincare products I tried out during the month. I am obsessed with skincare, and in my opinion your skin is like what the white canvas is for a painter is: when you apply makeup, the beneath is just as important as what products you actually use to do your makeup look.

In this months Ride or Die products, I have included products that will get you through the transitional season. Here in Sydney, we are currently transitioning from Winter to Spring/ Summer and back in Europe, it is slowly transitioning into Fall. Especially in this transitioning season, the skin is extra stressed, due to the fact that in Summer, your skin will need a more light-weight cream, whilst in cooler, drier weather, your skin will thrive best with heavier moisturizers.

1 Babor Hydro Cellular Hyaloron Cream

Is this for you? 

Babor’s Hyaloron Cream is the perfect, light-weight 24-hour moisturiser you will need transitioning into a warmer season. As they state on their website; Hyaluron Cream has a pleasant, light texture and provides multidimensional hydration for the skin. HY-3 peptides promote the skin’s natural production of hyaluronic acid, enabling moisture to be stored better in the skin. Triple-action hyaluronic acid reduces transepidermal water loss and thus intensify hydration. In addition, natural biopolymers increase the skin’s moisture content. They release moisture continuously and bind it in the skin, creating a 24-hour moisture reservoir effect.

How do I use it...

I like to use this cream in the morning, after I have washed my face, because it literally gives you an instant hydration and tightening effect.

2 Avène Hydrance Intense Rehydrating Serum

Is this for you? 

The Avène Hydrance Intense Rehydrating Serum is another light-weight skincare product, but I have found this is a little heavier (not that a serum can be that heavy in general), so this is definitely a runner for both transitioning into a cold and warmer season. As their website; This serum offers hydration and protection without unnecessary weight. Comforting and calming all at the same time.

How do I use this...

Serums, in general, I like to use in the mornings, but also they are great for your nighttime routine or in my case when I work from home I sometimes randomly cleanse my face with Thermal Water spray and reapply a serum.

3 Summer Friday’s Jet Lag Mask

Is this for you? 

Yes, I finally jumped on the train of the Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask and let me tell you this; I am a huge fan of doing overnight treatments. I do overnight hair masks, self tanner, and now also face masking. As they state on their website; the mask treats your stressed-out skin in antioxidant-rich hydration for an instant spa glow. Told you this post was all about hydration. I am in general all about hydration when it comes to skincare, because I love the dewy, glowy look.

How I use it...

As mentioned before, this is an overnight face mask, you can also just leave it on for 15 minutes and then wash it off, but honestly that would be a complete waste of the product since it is quite pricey. So, I wash my face, and apply the mask straight to my face, no creams no serums no nothing to block the mask from doing its magic. And in the morning I just do my regular morning routine.

4 Samson & Charlie 24k face oil

Is this for you? 

Did I just read 24k face oil? You sure did. In my own hydration oriented skincare routine, a good oil can not be missing. As they state on their website; this all-natural facial oil for the anti-aging glow it has the antioxidant powerhouse of vitamins A, B, C, E and F that will catapult your face and lips to celebrity status. All-natural and anti-aging and 24k gold particles, what do you need more?

How I use it...

I like to apply oils in the evening, because of their richer texture. That way, the oil can really do its magic and work on my skin all night without being mixed with anything. Just wash your face properly and then directly apply the oil, just like the overnight mask, I sometimes don’t like to mix up the products because I see them working not as good.

I don’t like to mix up products because I find them not working their magic to the fullest.
