Skincare is such a big passion of mine, and I love sharing it with you guys and my CINCteam! The girls at the office (and the guys too!) all say that they’ve gotten way more into taking care of their skin and trying new products ever since they became part of the team- they coined it ‘The Chriselle Effect!’
Two of the girls on the CINCteam- Jane and Idalia have really sensitive skin, and I know a lot of you guys do too. So, I brought them on the blog today to share their skincare journey, tips, and some of their favorite products they swear by! Hope you enjoy! xo Chriselle
Hey guys! Hope you’ve been well! It’s Jane here again to talk to you about being sensitive… with your skin, that is. Emotional stuff we can talk about later, promise!
I, along with many others, have not been blessed with the type of skin that our favorite girl boss, Chriselle Lim has and although I did get a “Chriselle Lim Glow-Up,” since I started working here, having temperamental skin means that my face still goes through a lot of shit. Breakouts and adult acne, greasy t-zone, slight eczema, rosacea… shall I continue? Translation: definitely not fun and really annoying/borderline embarrassing to deal with.
You guys should also know that my zodiac sign is Cancer. Why does this matter? Because like all Cancer traits, my skin is also deeply sensitive to particular products (see what I did there?). I know many of you struggle with that as well and with allergy season in full effect
You guys should also know that my zodiac sign is Cancer. Why does this matter? Because like all Cancer traits, my skin is also deeply sensitive to particular products (see what I did there?). I know many of you struggle with that as well and with allergy season in full effect 🤧, it’s time to treat our sensitive skin R-I-G-H-T.
So, being fortunate enough to have direct access to our beauty closet (truly a dream come true), here’s a breakdown of what’s been tried and true, tested, and practically emptied on my end.
Face Roller: Angela Caglia
The Cleanser: Gentle enough for every day, ideal for hyperpigmentation/rosacea, and smells nice and light.
The AM Serum: I’m in love with the Cicapair Line by Dr. Jart! Made for those of us who have slightly red, stressed out skin, I will gladly spend all of my money on this magical redness reducing serum any day of the week.
The PM Serum: If you’re 30-something like I am and have visible (unwanted) pores, this serum with retinol is a miracle worker. I won’t even sell it further to you, it leaves your skin feeling that good.
The Miracle Pads: OK, if you haven’t tried these yet, you need to. At first, it was weird wiping my face with more pads after I used my toner, but after one use, I was hooked. These are great for evening your skin’s texture and smell absolutely divine. A bit pricey, but 100% worth it.
The SPF: This Kate Sate Somerville SPF moisturizer is always the one getting stolen from me! It goes on lightweight, is non-greasy and smells great. You can’t even tell you’re wearing sunblock.
The Eye Cream: This eye cream is so refreshing and cooling. Goat’s milk is also great for those with… you guessed it, sensitive skin.
The Ultimate Beauty Tool: OK, this is a treat to have but it really works! I bring it to all of my girls’ nights in (you can choose what kind of treatment you want) and we get our glow up while catching up and drinking wine (is that bad)?
The Face Roller: The best way to answer all your texts back? One handed with this face roller in the other hand. It depuffs your face and helps promote cell turnover for a better glow!
Hi everyone, it’s Idalia! First things first, want to express that my skin has been something that I’ve always struggled with.
By the time I was 8yrs old, I was already visiting a dermatologist because of acne. Needless to say, I’ve always been very conscious (and at times embarrassed) about my skin. It’s my biggest insecurity.
I realize as women we constantly put pressure on ourselves to look our best… and that starts with the face, right? As I grow older, I realize that there are so many tools and products out there to actually help the skin (not only cover it up). At 34, my skin is a mixture of dry and oily, plus I have a slight form of rosacea in conjunction with broken capillaries. YIKES!
Here are the top products I’ve used throughout the years that I have found that work best, AND don’t break the bank. ps: That thing on my forehead? Yeah, that’s my pre-cancerous skin lesion. We can chat about that later too if you want.
Necklace: La Havane
Makeup Bag: Maison Baluchon
