Lately I’ve been getting so many questions on different details of my daily beauty routine. I thought it would be nice to finally get it all down in one easy to refer back to place. Sticking to and actually even having this whole routine has not always been the case. When we moved to Utah + Joe started his job, I felt like we were finally in a place financially where I could invest in really taking care of my skin. I haven’t always used these products, and know what its like to be in a place where drugstore products is what you can afford. So I’ve included a few on a lower budget that I loved using too!
I also want to mention that in NO WAY WHATSOEVER is this post sponsored. This is my tried and true beauty routine that works for me. It is all personal opinion, and what may work for me, may not be the best for you! I will never promote or recommend anything I don’t use + love, which is why beauty posts are actually pretty rare for me. I know what I love + stick to it, so I have actually turned down beauty promotions in the past, because I’m not going to recommend something I don’t use + love! So now that we’ve got that out of the way..haha lets talk beauty routine!
First up is face wash! I’ve told you guys before that I absolutely love Tula, and their Purifying Cleanser is no exception. I love the gel texture! My face feels so clean and refreshed, but it doesn’t leave you with that tight dry desert face feeling after using it like a lot of other face washes. It is full of probiotics to help nourish your skin to give it such a nice glow. I especially love it when my skin is drier in the winter months. For sure a product in the Tula line that I think is worth every penny, (especially with the discount code below) and personally wouldn’t be something I’d switch out for a cheaper option.
If you’ve been following along over on Instagram, you’ve seen that part of upping my skin care game has been working with the team over at Form Med Spa to try + reverse some damage, as well as prevent future issues. I’ll be sharing more about the treatments in the coming weeks, but along with those, I’ve been incorporating a little bit of their medical grade skin care line into my daily beauty routine.
I absolutely love this toner! Unlike most toners, it is a spray, and it’s amazing. I love that its a quick spritz instead of having a wetter feeling that you feel like has to dry before you can move on. The formula is meant to clear + prep your skin to absorb + more efficiently use the rest of the products in your beauty routine. And a bonus in addition to the vitamins, it also reduces wrinkles + fine lines…who can say no to that?! haha! For me, going medical grade on this is personal preference. Prior to the last 6 months or so, I have used this toner + this toner and truly love both and think they get the job done!
This Hydrating Day + Night Cream from Tula is without a doubt my very favorite item in my whole beauty routine. I love it so much I gifted it to my mom + sisters for Christmas. It is seriously the best cream I’ve ever used. I love that it is not too heavy feeling, but still gives you all the moisture you need. You never have that greasy shine that a lot of hydrating creams do, just a nice clean glow. It is full of probiotics + is like a super food for your face! If you were to invest in any one product for your beauty routine, this should hands down be the one. Plus to help make things more affordable, you can use code KAILEESPRING to get 20% off anything from Tula!
You may have seen on my stories that Tula just came out with a new gel cream as well. I’ve been kind of rotating it instead of this day + night cream to see what I think and so far it is also really good. I love that it is completely oil free and has that gel texture like the face wash. I can’t give it my full 100% positive review yet, but I’ll update after a few weeks of use and let you know what I think! So far another winner.
You guys…do you ever wish you could go back to your teenage self and tell them to WEAR SUNSCREEN!! Like put down the baby oil at the pool and put on the dang sunscreen! It took me a lot of years, but I am just now realizing how important sunscreen really is, not just at the beach or the pool, but in our DAILY beauty routine. This is another one that I went straight to Form Spa for advice on and am so happy I did. I’ve been using this tinted sunscreen + love everything about it. Number one, it does not at all have the greasy residue that your typical sunscreen does. It has SPF 45 + protects against both UVA + UVB rays.
I love that it is combined with the tint so on days when I don’t have time to throw on makeup, if I put on this I get the smooth coverage + the sunscreen all in one. I don’t know how the magic works, but the tint works on any skin tone. I’ve used, my sisters have, and I even put some on Hunter to test it out and it always matches perfectly. It minimizes fine lines + wrinkles and really gives you such a nice glow instead of the gross sunscreen shine.
If it doesn’t work for you right now financially, sunscreen is still so important. I love this option too. Anything you can do to protect you skin!
I’m sure you’ve heard me talk about my 5 minute makeup routine, so you know I’m not a huge makeup person. I don’t really do a lot of the extra steps most people do. But there is one product I’ve been using for over 10 years and love! It is this pressed powder. I usually get it in a shade darker and use it as a bronzer. My number one reason for using it is additional sun protection, again without the greasy feel! Its a great way to finish off your makeup with a little glow + know you’ve got another layer of protection.
I think that sums up my daily beauty routine. It’s nothing too intense or time consuming. For me to be able to stick to it and do whats best for my skin, it had to be doable on a busy mama schedule. I’m really loving the combination of these products! I’d be happy to answer any questions you have about any of them! I’d love to hear your go to products too!
