New In: Our Skincare Routine
We’re constantly working on our skincare routine, and (cautiously) trying new products – we both have sensitive skin so we have to be extra careful. We’ve added a few new products from Nordstrom that we’re loving, so wanted to share them with you today. 
Clarins Double Serum: This was definitely a splurge for me, but I’ve only been using it for a few days and I swear I’m already seeing results! The reviews are amazing as well – I love reading reviews, and base a lot of purchase decisions on them. This is Clarins’ best-selling serum, and has 20 different plant extracts to boost skin’s radiance, and fight fine lines. I bought the larger size because it’s a much better value, and I don’t think this will ever be leaving my skincare routine. 
Shiseido Eye Cream: Technically this isn’t “new” to my skincare routine, but this is a new jar. I am so obsessed with this eye cream, it’s so hydrating and I’ve seen great results. Meggan has it as well, and we both swear by it! I only use this at night, and put it on after the Clarins Double Serum, and follow with moisturizer. 
Philosophy Clear Days Ahead: Another repurchase item here, I’m on my third jar of these pads. Every since having Avery, my skin has been more prone to breakouts (no idea why, but it’s the sad truth), and these have saved my skin! These pads were another item I purchased based on the reviews, and am so happy I did! I use these once/day (at night) after cleansing my face. I let the moisture dry completely, then follow with the Calrins serum, Shiseido eye cream, and finally moisturize. I also love love love this mask (wearing it in the photo below) for acne which I use once/week.

One thing I’ve done to step up my skincare routine is use masks on the regular. A few things that I look for in a mask are: no drying out skin, minimize pores, brighten and refresh skin. This Kiehl’s clay mask checks off all my requirements!

It’s pretty thick and a little goes a long way.
This cleansing balm isn’t new in my routine but it’s something I swear by and needed to share again!  Ever since I started using this, I really started to notice a difference in my skin. It’s a balm but once you rub it on your skin it turns into a silky oil that literally melts your makeup off. After I use the balm, I wash my face then apply this Clarins ‘multi-active’ night cream.

One of our favorite things about Nordstrom is it’s a one-stop shop for all your skincare needs. Below are a few more products we cannot live without!
