Products I Love & Why They Work

Six amazing skincare products - Melrose Journal
Sunday Riley - Luna Sleeping Oil // Melrose Journal

Sunday Riley - Luna Sleeping Night Oil

Firms my skins during night and helps repair damage caused by the sun and other environmental factors. It contains retinol and blue tansy, combined with german chamomile and cold pressed avocado, chia, and concord grape seed oils. Absorbs super fast into my skin and in the morning the skin on my face looks and feels more radiant. I could’t recommend this product high enough.

Sunday Riley - Good Genes // Melrose Journal

Sunday Riley - Good Genes Treatment:

Lactic acid treatment makes my skin look radiant and bright. I use this a couple of times a week for extra glow and vibrance. If you haven't tried lactic acid before, now is the time. Gives the skin an baby like softness and glow.

Leonor Greyl - Hair Treatment // Melrose Journal

Leonor Greyl - Huile de Leonor Greyl

This thing is like magic. Iv’e been using it for many years now and it’s helped my dry and brittle hair so much. It’s to be used as a pre-shampoo treatment but I also apply a tiny bit in my ends before blowdrying - or at the beach to prevent damage caused by sun & sea salt. I mostly use it as an overnight treatment. Smells AMAZING!

Philosophy - time in abottle for eyes // Melrose Journal

Philosophy - Time in a bottle for eyes:

This eye seem is nothing short of amazing. Sinks in quickly, and doesn’t leave a residue so I can easily apply my concealer on top. It really helps brighten my dark circles and smooths the sensitive skin around my eyes. Enough said.

Joanna Vargas - Daily Serum // Melrose Journal

Joanna Vargas - Daily Serum:

Smells like a fruit punch and works wonders for my skin. I use this daily serum, well daily - under my tinted moisturizer. This serum amplifies other active ingredients with the clinically proven Galactoarabinan, a naturally derived ingredient from the Larch tree, intensifying cell turnover for more youthful, vibrant skin.

Fresh - Sugar Body Oil

 Fresh - sugar Ultra Nourishing Body Oil

Ok, so I have very very dry skin on my body. I have a condition called pityrarsis versicolor. It’s been a problem since i was a kid and I’ve been using all sorts of doctors prescibed creams and treatments. This oil is a great compliment to some of the heavier creams I use. It’s fast absorbing and very hydrating. I use it directly when I get out of the shower to lock in the moisture. Smells delisciously refreshing as well.

Aesop - Primrose Facial Cleansing Masque // Melrose Journal

Aesop - Primerose Facial Cleansing Masque

I use this clay mask twice a week to remove impurities and decongest from use of makeup. Works like a charm.
