My guide to clear, hydrated & glowing skin with found beauty!

Following up with last month’s post on bright & clear skin ( in case you missed it it’s HERE ) I want to go deeper into my skin care routine with my fam over at found  . As I mentioned back in May, I have partnered up with them this year to share my favorite natural inspired products and how they help my skin! Honestly, incorporating skin care and makeup products that are safe for my skin has been a real life changer for me so here it is… my Guide to beautiful glowing skin!

I’ll start with a product that has quickly become my #1 and for good reasons! I’m talking about found’s Seaweed Water Cream. This little gem is unbelievably light! Every time I apply it, the texture feels like water on my skin. I love skin care so of course I had tried other brands that came up with a similar concept —that water feel on your skin, but truthfully none that feels as refreshing and light as this one, not to mention that it’s 92% Natural and so affordable! This hydrating cream is also under the brightening collection which has had the best effect on my skin so far, so it’s no surprise that this is a must have on my everyday routine.

Next is the Cucumber Cooling Stick and if you can’t guess by the name, let me tell you this glide stick leaves my keeps my skin calm and soft through out the day. This once is  98% Natural and it’s meant to de-puff the skin so in my opinion it’s a great morning product —when I look my most vulnerable and need the extra help— this product comes to the rescue. I use it right before the Seaweed Water Cream and I’ve found that the effect of both is the perfect combo because my face feels cool and moisturized all day. Although it’s so small that I sometimes carry it on my purse in case the weather is acting up and I need a little pick me up!

Makeup Removal Balm-erikadvm

Moving on to the cleansing part of the routine, I’ve recently been trying the 90% Natural Makeup Removing BalmLast month I talked about how much I LOVE the Tea Tree Gel Cleanser and I still do! But on the days that I wear makeup I like doing a 2 step cleansing routine to make sure I am addressing both the makeup removal issue and the everyday impurities that the skin goes through everyday.  So I first used the Makeup Removing Balm ( a little goes a long way ) and next I use the Gel Cleanser that way my skin is fully clear!

RED CLAY FACIAL MASK STICK_ERIKADVM

After cleansing my face I’ve been applying this Red Clay Facial Mask  to get rid of impurities and toxins. I leave it on for about 10min but the stick says I can rinse off in as little as 5min, so those who don’t really have much time these days for face masks this is for you. I like the idea of boosting my skin and making sure it’s reenergized so I’ve been using it twice a week. To be honest I’m more used to the typical fabric soaked masks so I wasn’t sure this one was for me, but I found that this is more convenient because the stick just glides easily across my face so it’s not as messy. I’m not saying I’m done with my other found face masks BUT when I don’t have time to lie down and apply those, this is a perfect and quick option! So of course it’s a new fave of mine.

Every skin comes with a different set of needs and that’s why found has created several collections to choose from. This guide I just shared is my personal experience and real opinions I’ve made by following their number system in the packaging! It makes it really easy to use because they label their products with a step number of 1-3 to customise your own routine:

  1. Cleanse
  2. Treat
  3. Hydrate

And *Enhance  which are the non-daily products that are meant for extra skin improvements

I encourage you to try them for yourself! It is such a joy when you find the collection that truly fits your needs. This year I have been really enjoying getting to know found beauty products and there’s so many more I want to share! Specially on their makeup line, more on that soon. But the fact that this brand is so honest, takes such great care about the ingredients they use and how these products are made, makes me feel really good about using them on a daily basis. To be honest, I wish I had started paying more attention to what I apply on my body sooner, but ever since I’ve been switching to more naturally based products I have noticed a big improvement so I am happy I came across a brand like this one that I can fully trust.  Until next time!
