HIGH END SKINCARE - ON A BUDGET

Based on the IG Polls and Dm's, I delivered:) –  here comes my 8 high end quality skincare and cosmetic products but are friendly towards the bank balance too!

In preparation for Cyber Week, I decided to not only shop for the holiday gifts, but also stock up on some really good quality beauty product that are fraction of the price. After so much experience of being not that clever before and splurging on the products not realizing the difference between a pure marketing and genuine recommendation, now I know exactly where and when to shop, because you know that those 2 factors impact the price and you don't wanna be a donkey, lol.

You can see my selection of the most recent skincare and cosmetic products I am using at full prices as well as some on Black Friday sales at the moment and a constant discount venues finds:

 DOUBLE SERUM ANTI AGE - CLARINS

Clarins has become one of my favorite brands years ago, and I think their double serum and eye serum are an absolute "king" when it comes to the texture, quality and most importantly the result. 

Two years ago, I purchased this amazing double serum that I have been using ever since and I am not planning to stop and happy to share a link to the most discounted venue of this perfect DOUBLE SERUM that I find 100% worthy and it is perfect addition to your anti age "recipe" and feels like silk when you apply to your skin and instantly hydrates.

Typically this bottle of the serum lasts for 2 months, and I apply it as a part of my night skincare products combo.

I found it at almost 50% off at Style Rule, at least now at the time of me typing it is showing this price!

 

 WATER STEIN LIP GLOSS

Adding to that, don't miss out on the CLARINS WATER STAIN LIP GLOSS. It genuinely stays on your lips for hours, and it's nourishing without drying them out.

I opt for a light rose shade, and just a hint of this lip gloss enough.

I found the discounted rate at Avenue Fifth Sax so feel free to check it out HERE.

 FACIAL SPRAY - MARIO BADESCU

I firmly believe that daily facial spray is a must. We often overlook how easily our skin absorbs pollution, which is worsening each year.

I've tried various products and realized the pump is crucia, as I can't stand when a product lacks a good pump for facial spraying!

Trader Joe's have a good one I used before, but now I'm hooked on MARIO BADESCU.

I carry the mini version in my purse and keep a larger one in the bathroom.

Super discount detected on Amazon for the bundle of a few! 

My Tip: I also love creating my own mixture by combining water with lemon. After cleaning the bottle, I refill it with my blend to avoid my skin getting accustomed to just one type of spray, as I believe switching up skincare is important.

 

 ANTI AGE NIGHT CREAM - STURM

For anti-aging, I believe in a combination of lifestyle habits and genetics.

Figuring out the right skincare products is our responsibility.

Once you've found what works, it's about finding the best deal for that "recipe."

My pick is:

Dr. Barbara Sturm's Super Anti-Aging Night Cream - discount price deal.

MUA PRIMER - ANTI REDNESS - SMASHBOX

Maybe I'm mistaken, but it seems to help reduce winter redness, eliminating the need for foundation. Since it contains an algae, It lets my skin breathe, and feels amazingly refreshing!

Btw, I use it solo, and that works for me just fine, as it clear up my pores.

(I do not have a habit of wearing foundation unless I am on a photo shoot).

 

In the sea of countless makeup primers, my go-to is a seaweed-based one (or algae). It lets my skin breathe, and I use it solo, giving my face a natural evenness that works for me. Maybe I'm mistaken, but it seems to help reduce winter redness, eliminating the need for foundation. I noticed the same 1 oz product has a better discount on their original website at SmashBox, than at Macy's or Nordstrom and Ulta  as you can see it yourself and Check it out in HERE.

 GENTLE CLEANSER - ARILAN SKINCARE

FYI, I'm still dedicated to using the Arilan Skincare Gentle cleanser, as I've been doing for years. My dear friend Ronit, an expert facial specialist in Beverly Hills  with her own skincare line, is the source of my skincare "exploits." lol!

While I mix and match various products,

her cleanser has remained my go-to for years.

Rarely do I replace it, but that's just the way it is.

If you're in LA, book an appointment for her fantastic facial sessions—you'll thank me! Mention my name, and feel free to DM her (@skincare90210) for a discount, and If she hesitates, give me a call to mediate, lol!

 

 LASHES GROW & BROWS- FOLICA BEAUTY

I have been using this serum for such a very long time, and not only that the price is great but in my case it takes 3-6 weeks to see the results while in times I don't use it, the effect do not wear out so quickly as it does when I was using other lashes growth serums.

You can go to her IG page @folicabeauty  or browse her online store  for the LASHES GROW SERUMwhere you will also find ana amazing EYE BROW PENCIL which I highly recommend!

COCONUT FACIAL SCRUB - MIRACLES & MORE

Many might recall my first Instagram collaboration with the youthful skincare brand Miracles and More.

Since then, my go-to is their coconut facial exfoliation, known as Miracles & More Gentle Mint Face Exfoliate

It feels fantastic, smells clean, and is cruelty-free.

Originally for the face, I use it for my entire body and lips in the shower.

  

SOME BASICS USING EVER SINCE: 

I will also include some basics to this blog since those 2 products have been a part of my skincare essentials ever since and the cost is minimal:

1. KITSCH DERMA PLANNING 

Concerning facial peeling, my experience taught me that doing it too often or aggressively is not ideal.

I discovered a solution that many of you may already know.

I also found the best deal for derma-planing tools at KITSCH on Amazon.

 Given my sensitive skin prone to redness, I do my facial peeling once a week or twice if I'm actively filming on set.

Check out KITSCH for a super discounted price.

2. ARNICA - Bruise Relief

Currently, I spend most of my time in the studio with a balanced sun exposure, and based in Los Angeles climate zone, with a consistent moderate workout activities ( jogging, tennis or barre and pilates).

However, I do get cold sores on my lip three times a year regardless, and my skin easily reddens, and I often bruise, either from daily activities (ask the furniture lol) or just mysteriously, which I read somewhere it could be lacking iron.

If you're looking for an affordable source, here's a link to the

 I HERB online store with Arnica at the discounted product.

 I apply it every other day post-shower, before body lotion, protecting my easily bruised skin.

I typically order a monthly supply, ensuring I'm covered for a month or two.

 

Alright, that's it for now. I might throw in more stuff as I keep tweaking this article until December or so.

LALA DAILY LIFESTYLE FASHION 

 I'm not the most consistent with my beauty blogs, and it's been a minute since I posted on YouTube, but more of my workouts, beauty discoveries, and lifestyle laughs are coming soon.

In the meantime, catch me in my IG stories and always right here! See ya!

Stay healthy, beautiful and happy,
