My skin takes a hell of a beating in a week. Between the stress of school, working out, my many late nights, working on computers for 10 hours a day, forgetting to drink tons of water, and enjoying the libations a bit too much at times, my skin is a total disaster by the weekend.
A few weeks ago, Lionesse Beauty sent me a few super-hydrating items from their Diamond Collection and I can already see the difference in my skin. I use the serum on an almost-daily basis and I’ve started a little Sunday night tradition of using the facial and eye mask right before I go to bed. And then every Monday morning, I wake up, not as much bright-eyed and bushy-tailed as I am bleary-eyed and mentally nonfunctional before coffee… but at least my skin is super hydrated and ready for the week ahead!
What I’m Wearing:
Pajamas: Kate Spade / Serum: Lionesse Beauty, c/o / Face Masks: Lionesse Beauty, c/o
Throughout all of middle school and high school, I had the worst skin. Breakouts galore. My whole family has oily skin, so I always used products for oily skin. The same products my mom and sister used. And totally broke out as a result. And that’s putting it gently (you can read the not-so-gently version here).
When I was in college, I finally realized that I have dry skin (and super dry skin at that). I swapped out the oily-skin products for the dry-skin products and my skin started clearing up. I now have a collection of moisturizers: lighter ones for day, heavier ones for overnight, and – obviously – super moisturizing masks for hardcore weekend rejuvenation. The way I see it, the more a mask makes you look like something out of a horror movie, the more moisturizing it must be.
One thing I love about the Diamond Collection from Lionesse Beauty is how hydrating the products are. The Diamond Collection focuses on hydrating the skin and reversing the signs of aging and sun damage. Also they smell delicious. Which is definitely an awesome added bonus.
I just recently ran out of their White Pearl product line (see my review here); it’s a great starter line which covers all of your basic skincare needs. There are also a few Lionesse Beauty lines I haven’t tried: the Amber Collection is great for helping with those annoying under eye bags, circles, and wrinkles; the Black Onyx Collection is for anti-aging; and the Golden Sapphire Collection is for skin rejuvenation.
I’m only a few weeks into using the Diamond Collection and I’m already obsessed; it has made such a difference in my skin. However, please keep in mind that this is a skincare routine that has worked for me. And what works for me might not be what works for you and your skin. Make sure that you test any new skincare products on your hand or neck before applying them to your face to make sure that you don’t have any adverse reactions.
