Hello my dolls!
I have a new new post for you, my updated summer morning skincare routine featuring Colourpop’s sister brand, Fourth Ray Beauty. Shout-out to Cleia for introducing this brand to me, I would have never known they had a sister brand! 🙂
Anyway, I’m going to be showing you guys the products I have been using lately for my morning skincare routine as I have replaced a few and also added a few (FRB).
I’m so excited to announce I have finally settled on a schedule for both my YouTube and my blog. I will be posting videos twice a week, Tuesday’s and Thursday’s with posts to go with them, most likely. If I decide not to do a blog post for my videos, then you guys will get different content here. Also, also, also, Wednesday’s will be for BONUS content whether that’s a video or a post or both. I just have so much content I want to put out this summer, so many ideas. So yeah, expect loads of stuff from me this season.
Feel free to watch my skincare routine video or keep scrolling to read:
Cleansing & Toning
So I use the Earth Therapeutics Soft Touch Complexion Brush along with my current favorite cleanser, e.l.f’s Daily Face Cleanser. This cleanser just seems perfect for the hot weather, it feels refreshing and I love how clean my face feels after using it.
To tone, I use another favorite, Thayer’s Witch Hazel Rose Petal Toner which was recommended to me by the lovely Ingrid Madison, I totally love it! I’m running low and will be repurchasing!

Eye & Lip Care
I don’t always use these products, the eye cream (e.l.f. Illuminating Eye Cream) is only to prep my skin when I will be doing my makeup since my eyelids have been dry recently. And also to prep my lips in case I chose a matte lip, I use the PUR Cosmetics -XFaux Lip Plumping Exfoliator and then use the Essence Prettifying Lip Oil to nourish my lips.

Fourth Ray Beauty: Wide Awake Trio
Ah finally, the focus of this skincare routine.
After using toner, I like to use this Watermelon Seed Oil (2 drops for my face, 1 drop for my neck), warm it between my fingers and press gently into the skin. While I’m not a huge fan of the scent, it’s not completely bothersome, and I only smell it as I’m applying it. I love how light it feels compared to the Physician’s Formula Bright Booster Oil Elixir, that one feels thicker, so I only use it at night. I was thinking that I wasn’t going to be able to use a face oil but I’m glad that I got this trio because it’s perfect for summer and even during hot days, my face doesn’t feel too oily.

The face milk practically replaced my moisturizer for the day, although if I feel my skin needs a bit more hydration, I will drink tons of water and also use another moisturizer on top. Anyway, this one feels lightweight as well and I love how fast it sinks into my skin. I have been applying this face milk right after the watermelon seed oil, and I’m amazed at how well they go together.
Lastly, the Fresh AF mist. Simple to use. Just spritz throughout the day if needed and I love how refreshing it feels. I do tend to change this one for my other Mario Badescu facial sprays, so they’re usually all in rotation, but this one is much smaller than the others and fits perfectly into my makeup bag! Perfect for on-the-go.

Though the SPF should NOT be an extra, I’m including it as such because I don’t ALWAYS leave my house, so I don’t need to wear it indoors. If that makes sense. I’m using the Simple Skincare Light Moisturizer SPF1, it’s not CF and it does have those harsh chemicals that kill the coral reef so don’t buy it!
And since I wash my hands like ALL the time, I do need a hand cream. I’m currently using this Delectable Triple Moisture Body Lotion with Coconut & Cream, and I love it! Super soft and hydrating. I am almost out so will need to replace my hand cream with another.
So that’s it you guys! I tried to make this post short and sweet because for the most part, my routine stays the same. The FRB products are the new additions to my morning skincare routine and I have been loving using them.
I’d love to know if anyone else has tried their products, which ones specifically, and how you like them! 😀 I am definitely thinking of picking up some more once I’m done with these, which might take a while!
Hope you all are having an amazing day! I’m definitely feeling so much better after such a bad day yesterday! 🙂 Sending you all good vibes! ❤
