TBB Talks: All About Skincare

Happy Monday!
I had every intention of having a post up and ready to go by 5am this morning, but life hit this weekend.
And when I say life, I mean X having a major case of food poisoning or a 24 hour flu bug!
It was bad folks :(
Thankfully, he improved over night so much that he went to school today!
Add in the time change and this girl is exhausted today.
Hence the delayed post.

But, I am posting so cheers to that!

Today I am linking up with TBB to talk about skincare.

I briefly mentioned last week that I decided to give some new products from No. 7 a try.
But before I get to that let me give you a few other details about how I take care of, or at least try to take care of my skin.

~one~
First things first....I always wash my make up off before I go to bed.
That makes a huge difference right there!
Honestly, I can count on one had the times I have slept in my make up in my entire life.
I can't even take a nap without washing it off.

~two~
Another thing I do is let my skin breathe.
On weekends I don't have an ounce of make up unless we are doing something.
And even then I wait until the last second to apply it.

~three~
This one might sound weird, but I am always wearing sunglasses!
Does that mean I don't have any lines?
NO WAY!
But, fingers crossed it helps me to prevent a few more from sprouting up before I am ready for them ;)

Now onto the products I use.

I have mentioned on here before that for the last couple of years I have been using Rodan and Fields products.
I would use the Soothe line in the morning and the Redefine line in the evenings before bed.
I also use the eye cream in the morning and in the evening.
I felt like they have really made a difference in the overall appearance of my skin.
Unfortunately, over the last few months my skin has been changing :(
I am not sure if that is a side effect of a fairly new medication or what.
But my skin is drier than normal and these products just weren't helping me control that.

Another blogger shared the No. 7 products recently so I decided to give them a try.
The price is reasonable, and I can pick up the products at my local Target or Walgreen's instead of having to order online and wait for them to arrive.
Here is what I picked up...


I knew without a doubt that I wanted to give the Total Renewal Exfoliator a try!
After the first wash my skin was SO soft and smooth!
It isn't something you want to use every day, but definitely something I would pick up and try out for yourself.

The Beautiful Skin cleanser was another one I knew I wanted before I got to the store.
It is a fairly mild cleaner in my opinion (I have sensitive skin), but was strong enough to remove all of my make up.
That makes it a winner right there!

I decided to get the Lift & Luminate Skin system as well as the eye cream.
This line seems to be the most comparable to the Redefine line from R&F.
The eye cream goes on nice and smooth,
the serum is very similar to the night time serum with R&F,
but the day and night cream are the game changers for me!
They are thicker in texture, but don't feel think once applied.
And boy oh boy do they hydrate my dry skin!
They even add a nice glow :)

I have officially been using the No. 7 products for a week and I might have found a replacement for R&F.
I'll report back soon if things continue to go well, or if I decide they aren't for me.

Have you tried No. 7 products before?
If so, which one do you use?
