October Beauty Buys

I’ve noticed a trend in my beauty buys this month: moisturizing. I don’t know if it’s the impending cooler weather that threatens by smooth skin or my postpartum hormones that are having a heyday with my skin — either way I need fixes. I picked up this Retinol Skin Oil for night time which helps TREMENDOUSLY with my dry skin. It always feels so counterproductive to put oil on my face, but I swear it has helped the overall appearance of my skin. (This is a new formula for Colleen Rothschild. It has retinol in it, so you know, it’s basically gold.) Then for the day, I’ve found this matte moisturizer to wear under my makeup and it acts like a primer and a moisturizer. I add it to my normal face lotion routine in the morning right before my makeup and my foundation glides on so smoothly.

Speaking of foundation, I am loyal to no foundation or brand — I will try them all. I’m not so much on the journey to find the perfect foundation but rather I like to try them all because I think each foundation has a use for every different reason. This one from L’Oreal is matte and has full coverage but without feeling goopy or too thick on my face. It glides on so smoothly — I love it. And for a foundation to be under $15 but feel like a $40 foundation, that’s huge. It’s the L’Oreal Infallible Total Coverage and I’ve linked it here.

All of my favorites for this month are below!

Have you come across any great beauty buys this month? If so, share them with me sister!

    Have you looked into the risks of using retinol products while breastfeeding? It’s clearly bad while pregnant but less conclusive evidence while bfeeding. I ended up avoiding it, but obviously there’s no perfect answer. Thanks!

      I did not use it while pregnant for sure! I have weened off of nursing so I’m using retinol now, but did not while fully breastfeeding. I avoided it for sure! You can never be to careful!

  3. I’ve noticed that my skin has definitely felt drier the last couple of weeks so I’ve been paying extra close attention to moisturizing as well. I’ve been loving Vitamin E oil for my face, neck, and hands!

    I’ve been having to moisturize like crazy lately too! I’d love to try out that Colleen Rothschild night oil. I need a little something extra to keep my unsightly dry patches away.

    Hi Kendi! You mentioned using the Origins moisturizer over your regular lotion – what regular lotion do you use? Thanks!
