happy winter! we've made it through the thick of it [but how can i complain -- it's california :)] but somehow 60 degrees now seems freezing to me [who have i become!?]. although the temperatures lower + the rain seems almost endless, winter is actually one of my favorite seasons in los angeles. it's finally cool enough to wear sweaters, hats, + boots without regretting your choices by noon, you get asked "HOT or iced" when you order coffee, + you can be outdoors without feeling like you're melting. the only thing that gets me about winter in california is what it does to my skin! not only does the air have less moisture making my skin dry, winter brings about the most stressful time in school - two factors that can wreak havoc on my face. luckily, two unlikely ingredients are a win over this winter problem!
when i heard about Bioré's new line of Blue Agave + Baking Soda line, i was intrigued! not only had i never heard of blue agave before, but the fact that they had a whipped mask got me super excited! i love a good facemask, + this one has menthol* for an intense, tingly clean! applying it to a wet face + leaving it on for 3-5 minutes makes it the easiest addition to your morning routine + it's sure to become an everyday favorite. the facewash is incredible too! especally for those with combination skin [i'm raising my hand too!], it's got the same great ingredients that deep clean pores, leave a tingly, fresh feeling, soothe, + repair all at the same time! dirt + oil are lifted away in less than five minutes! goodbye winter skin blues, hello blue agave!
*Please note: Not for sensitive skin consumers or those with sensitives to menthol as it may cause short term flushing of the skin.*
