Finding an esthetician I really love in our new neighborhood has honestly been a huge challenge for me. While I have tried a few in the area, I haven’t found one that I connect with on a personal level, and one that delivers quality services at reasonable prices. Not only do frequent facials add up quickly, sometimes the idea of having to brave the heat for a while in the car as I make my way to an esthetician deters me. First world problems for someone living in the desert… I know! With that said, I have been extra proactive with home care when it comes to my face and neck. As I approach my 30’s, it has become super important for me to take all the preventative measures I can to halt the aging process. This involves staying consistent with a solid routine, and using quality products. Today, I’ll be sharing more about Lionesse Gem Skin Care’s Morganite Collection, which has been a pivotal part of my home care routine at night, helping me achieve balance and a healthy glow!
Lionesse Gem Skin Care’s Morganite Collection consists of 3 game-changer products that I swear by: a magnetic mask, a transforming serum, and a reinforcing cream. I use these in this exact order at night before I go to sleep! Those of you who know me know that I love being outdoors soaking in my daily dose Vitamin D whenever I can. Even though I use sunscreen religiously, the UV rays out here are definitely much stronger than in other places where the sun shines brightly. So, it is necessary for me to follow with a solid nightly routine to heal and refresh my skin after repeated sun exposure. Perfectly bronzed skin is a major pro, but not when it’s dry, wrinkly, and dull-looking!
MORGANITE MAGNETIC MASK
Face masks are something I have gotten into consistently only recently. The right ones address many skin concerns, and hydrate the skin while removing excess oils. Sometimes when my skin feels dirty, I find that masks do a wonderful job at pulling out impurities and improving the appearance of my pores. When I was just starting out, I was very loyal to sheet masks because they are readily available and cost-efficient. But, I didn’t always use them consistently because I felt they were sort of messy and overall not as pleasant to use.
The Morganite Magnetic Mask is the first magnetic mask I have ever tried in my life – and I have to say that it is pretty cool! It has definitely changed the way I feel about and look at masks. I don’t quite know how to put my amazing experience into words, except that it literally feels like I am magnetizing the energy back into my fatigued skin. Yes, the harsh humid weather these days have not been friendly to my face. I find myself looking dull and tired more often than ever. This luxurious mask definitely helps to nourish my skin with healthy oils and botanicals, restoring that glow that I always long for! I’m a firm believer that when you look your best, you also feel your best.
Even though it looks intimidating at first, using this is much simpler than I anticipated. When I opened the box, I couldn’t quite figure out what the magnet and sachef was for. After reading the instructions though, I was able to figure it out. Before applying any product, I always make sure to cleanse my face with my go-to cleanser. Then, I gently pat my face dry and apply the mask evenly onto my freshly cleansed and damp skin. Like with any mask, I leave this on for 10-15 minutes before removing it. The removal process is what really intrigues me! I simply hover the enclosed magnet close to my skin to remove it. It’s like ma-aaaaa-gic! Unlike traditional masks, this one is not messy and feels very rejuvenating. For optimal results, I have been using this 3 times a week. The mask is gentle enough for everyday use as well, but sometimes I find it hard to make time for a mask everyday.
MORGANITE TRANSFORMING SERUM
After mask time, I always follow with a face serum for best results. Just a year ago, I never really quite understood the importance of serum – it always felt redundant to me because it almost felt like a lightweight moisturizer. I know there are many of you that might be thinking the same way. Recently, I learned that serums are actually a very essential part of skin care. They penetrate deep into the skin so that you are able to truly take advantage of all the nutrients in whatever you use, such as masks and moisturizers. It also helps to shrink pores, giving the appearance of visibly firmer and smoother skin.
I have used many serums in the past, but none have come close to the Morganite Transforming Serum in terms of quality and delivery. It features a silky texture and is infused with a plethora of powerful ingredients that work overnight to deliver a soft, more youthful appearance the next morning. I am definitely more motivated when I get instant gratification, and love that this serum makes me feel and look younger right away. As far as application goes, it is fairly simple. On clean and damp skin, I massage it liberally into my face and neck areas until fully absorbed. This magic-in-a-bottle is extremely lightweight and does not leave behind any heavy residue.
MORGANITE REINFORCING CREAM
I know many people who use a ton of products on their face especially at night, but I prefer to keep it as simple as I can. Quantity is not always quality, ladies! In fact, from my personal experience, keeping it limited to a few really good products is all I need to achieve beautiful skin. An excellent moisturizer has always been a staple in my beauty routine though. As most of you know, a suitable moisturizer works wonders in treating dry skin, and protecting sensitive skin. If you have oily skin, it is still important to use a moisturizer – one that is formulated to address it. Moisturizers hold water in the outermost layer of the skin, and also acts as a temporary barrier against impurities that may cause irritation.
After using serum, I finish off with the Morganite Reinforcing Cream and then apply my usual eye cream before going to bed. This anti-aging gem works best in conjunction with the transforming serum for full renewing benefits, but can also be used on its own as a moisturizer for dry and dehydrated skin. Similar to the serum, I use this cream every night, massaging it well into my face and neck. Even though the cream feels rich, it does not leave me feeling gross after it is fully absorbed. Waking up the next morning, my skin feels much stronger, firmer, and healthier!
[bigletter custom_class=””]As far as eye cream goes, I am dying to try Lionesse Gem Skin Care’s Amber Collection. It features a bunch of products that are formulated with Vitamin A, Vitamin E, and caffeine to obviously target the delicate eye areas. These ingredients work to address concerns like dark circles, puffiness, and wrinkles, to name a few. With repeated use, the creams and serum are supposed to deliver a brighter, well-rested look. For now, I’m just using La Mer’s Eye Concentrate as the final step of my nightly beauty routine. Once I run out of it, I will be investing in the Amber collection to see how I like it! Since I am a fan of the Morganite Collection, I have high hopes that the Amber collection will work wonderfully too.
These days, I have been placing extra efforts in prioritizing self-care in my everyday life. As an overworked entrepreneur, sometimes it is easy to neglect your health and well-being. But, taking small strides have made a substantial impact for me. One of these baby steps include upping my nightly beauty routine game with Lionesse Gem Skin Care’s Morganite Collection. My skin has never felt so revitalized, especially now going months without seeing an esthetician! I love being able to treat myself to a mini spa session every night before going to bed. The best part is, I can do it all from the comfort of my own bathroom. Even though the collection (and the individual products if you choose buy them separately) comes with a hefty price tag, I find it worth the splurge because I don’t have to leave the house to achieve glowing skin! Plus, a little bit of product goes a long way with these, so I feel that they will last me quite a while before I have to stock up again.
What are some of your favorite products for at-home skin care that you enjoy using at night before going to bed?
