Current Skincare Obsession

If you follow me on instagram you’ve seem my obsession for all the Monat products. But I wanted to do a little deep dive here on why I love the skincare so much and really share how it’s been a game changer for me. I’m a brand rep for the company because I whole heartedly stand behind the company and the products. I’m literally obsessed! My hair was good before I started the products but I still have seen a huge difference in my locks from the hair products.

But my skin on the other hand….I literally used to NEVER put my un makeup-ed face on insta stories because I thought my skin was so bad. My skin is clear, luckily I don’t suffer from acne, but my sunspots were so bad. I blame YEARS of laying in the tanning bed and on the beach with tanning lotion. I’m still so mad at myself over that. The sun damage on my face was bad.

But anyway, here we are, spotty skin and all. I’ve loved the hair products so when they launched skin care I thought, might as well try it all out! I mean what the heck do I have to lose?! And to be honest I literally love all the products. They are pricy, but not more than any other medical grade skincare or anything that’s actually going to work on your skin. I think my hold up with skincare was always, Ok- it’s such a big investment but what if it doesn’t do anything?! And then do you keep trying new, expensive things? Or just go back to not wasting money on things that don’t work and just buy Cetaphil cleanser and a good moisturizer?! Skincare has always overwhelmed me and stressed me out!

Monat Skincare: My Current Skincare Obsession

So that’s why I love using a trusted brand, that doesn’t have a million options, and I can just stick with this. Super simple.

Over time, they’ve added new products and I’ve added new products to my collection, but when the following photos were taken, I was just using 4 products. The cleanser, essence water, nectar (serum) and moisturizer. A great basic routine for anyone. I’ve since also become obsessed with the berry scrub and the eye cream, but that’s another story for another post!

But here we are. I’ve gone to hardly showing my spotty non makeup face to using half the amount of makeup I was once using! It’s kind of crazy! But I’m so excited and so happy with the results!

The first photo was taken on Sept 28, the bottom on November 2. These results were just a little over a month apart! It’s truly crazy!

What I’m Using Here:

The Be Balanced Skincare Routine: It comes with a Foamy Cleanser, the Skin Revitalizing Essence, Rewind Age Control Nectar & Moisturizer. The routine cleanses, prepares, targets & replenishes. The line says no to a lot of harmful ingredients but also has a lot of key active ingredients that are actively improving your skin. Which is amazing!

Why All Natural Ingredients?

The products are all naturally based using plants to do the work, not harmful chemicals! Just like when you eat healthy, nutritious foods for your body, you look and feel better? When healthy nutritious, good for you ingredients are going into your skin, you’re automatically going to glow more and look better! Here are some of the key active ingredients in the skincare and what they do!

REJUVENIQE S™: Hydrates, moisturizes, and nourishes

Natural Fruit Acids (AHAs): Smooths and brightens

Peptide: Tightens and plumps

Plant Stem Cells: Strengthens and protects

Ceramides: Supports skin barrier and hydrates

Hyaluronic Acid: Moisture magnet

Kakadu Plum: Brightens, soothes, and protects

 

There are a lot of reasons why I LOVE these products but I really love them because they work! Praise! If you’re looking to swap out your skincare for any of these reasons…yours isn’t working, you want a more healthy and natural option, you want something that’s plant powered and not chemically powered. Let me know! I’d love to hook you up! Message or email me (pearlsandtwirlsblog at gmail.com) for more details and I can get you hooked up at the best price! You can order on the Monat website here,  but don’t let the price scare you away, I promise I’ll get you in on some discounts!
