Cleanser! I’ve indulged inexpensive cleansers but know that I don’t feel like they really sit on the skin long enough to be doing anything miraculous to my actual skin, so something that cleans well, doesn’t strip my skin, etc. is all that is needed and really does come at a variety of price points. I also think that there are excellent body creams and moisturizers from brands like Aveeno, CeraVe, Eucerin, etc.

I wanted to do a quick housekeeping update: we’ve redesigned our newsletter (which goes out via email), and we have also added an option to get an email notification after a new post is published as well as a weekly round-up. We continue to offer a daily digest of the day’s posts. You can opt-in to none, a combo, or all, if that makes sense for you. ๐Ÿ™‚

If I wasn’t testing something, then I would be using setting spray and a lighter base with no powder along my nose (sunglasses and foundation separation!). I tend to keep it lighter on makeup if I’m going to be outside a lot or doing a lot of errands where I have to go to one place, then another, and then another, etc. I would reach for more waterproof or extra long-wearing formulas for eyeliner, mascara, and the like for longer times outside. On a typical day, though, since I’m inside a lot I don’t make adjustments.
