PERFECT SUMMER SKIN

 

I am a true, true lover of skin care. I love trying new things, figuring out what works for my skin (with the occasional experimenting breakout), and taking a little time to pamper myself. It’s quickly been working its way to a real obsession. 

Patchology is a brand that I was introduced to a few months ago and it seriously piqued my interest. I love trying out all the natural, super trendy, Pinterest-inspired skin care tips (like rubbing half a lemon all over your face…), but I do notunderestimate the power of science when it comes to skincare. I know people that are much smarter than me have put tons of research into these products and I love seeing how that works. 

Of course, when these items were sent to me I shrieked for joy, jumped up around, and threw in a few fist pumps for good measure. I mean I love trying new skin care and it made me feel so special that they asked me to test out these new products!

The best part: Patchology gave me a discount code to share with you guys! Use code SydneyR25 at checkout, but act quick because it only lasts until August 16th.  

SmartMud Detox Mask

Being a true skincare junkie and prone to breakouts I am a big fan of mud masks. These type of masks are the perfect resetbutton for my skin. However… I am not at all a fan of the mess they leave. 

I have been VERY honest on here about not washing my hair everyday (sometimes even pushing it to 3 or 4 days). But, I always have to wait until a ‘Hair Wash Day’ to use a mud mask because, no matter how hard I try, I get the mask  e v e r y w h e r e (in my hair included– I have very detoxed roots), and then when I go to wash it off I get muddy, dirty water  e v e r y w h e r e. 

Luckily, Patchology’s new SuperMud fixes all that. It’s like a sheet mask, except it’s a mud mask. And before I tried it I assumed that meant this would be a weak, little mask that couldn’t stand up to my sweat/stress filled pores… But it totally did! It pulled everything out and was super easy. 

This is a bit pricey for a one time mask (so use the code!), but it’s the perfect treat yo’self product. 

PoshPeel Pedi Cure

This is hands down (or feet down… ha. ha.) my favorite Patchology product I’ve tried, so far. 

I have exceptionally ugly feet: the longer second toe, a curved third toe, and forever dry/rough/dirty feet from constantly wearing Chacos. So, my feet need some extra TLC. 

This peel is incredibly easy. You get these super attractive plastic socks. You pour in the little, magic mixture. And then chill for about an hour (you could get work done during this time, but I found my time was better spent watching Food Network). It’s so simple.

My feet felt phenomenal! I’m talking no more dry skin getting stuck to my sheets or making it look like I have the feet of a 75 year old. Definite improvement. 

Plus, this product can be reused (depending on how much of the mixture you use) and is a super fair price. Way cheaper than a pedicure… I highly recommend it. 

Yes, these products were gifted to me, but this post is not at all sponsored. My opinions in here are totally honest and I just wanted to get a chance to share with you (and help you save some $$– don’t forget SydneyR25).

Please, let me know some of your skin care favs or if you get anything from Patchology. I would love to hear!

Thanks for reading, 

Sydney
