When we go from summer to autumn, I always feel the need for a shopping spree. Both clothes and products need to be switched out, or at least some of them. I went shopping at Raging Stars because I heard from a friend that they had great prices. They really did, so it’s safe to say that I went kind of crazy for a minute. I will tell you guys all about my shopping spree, and which products I ordered. Hopefully, you’ll like both my post and the products that I ordered from Raging Stars.
Not even leaving the couch to shop at Raging Stars
Since Raging Stars is an online store, I did not even have to leave the couch to start shopping. I can sometimes be a bit lazy and not the biggest fan of walking from store to store, so online shopping is perfect for me. Another thing that is a big plus for me is that you can find both beauty and fashion products at Raging Stars, instead of having to go to different online stores. It makes everything so much easier. At least according to me, haha. I had to look around quite a bit to make sure I did not miss anything. They have a lot of categories, and I wanted to take a look at everything. In the end, I think I found some goodies. I will share which ones I got with you today. Please feel free to give me feedback and tell me what you think.
Trying to up my skincare game
As you guys might have read already, A posted about her must-have skincare products at the moment. I got quite inspired and decided it’s time to up my own skincare game. Products are something that I have always used, but I have not been the best at following a set routine. I was talking with A about it and she has given me some tips and advice. The products that I purchased at Raging Stars I have used for a bit over a week now, and I am very happy so far. I was told I should wait at least a month before judging a product since the skin uses about a month to get used to a product. So I will give it a month and later decide if I am 100 % happy or not. But so far I only have good things to say. We will see how it evolves, but I’m optimistic.
Giving my skin the hydration it needs
In general, I try to avoid my skin aging. A simple step to avoid this is by giving it moisture. Every autumn my skin gets pretty dry, so because of that, I got recommended to add a hyaluronic acid serum to my skincare routine. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally present in our bodies, but it decays as we get older. Because of that, it’s a great idea to supply that to your skin from your mid-twenties, to avoid early signs of aging. I have been using the Babaria Hyaluronic Acid Serum for a week now, and I notice a big difference in my skin actually. It feels like it’s much more bouncy and the dry spots I had earlier have now disappeared. I had never tried Babaria earlier, but after seeing it at Raging Stars I decided to give it a shot.
Switching out the night cream with a face mask
During the day I use the moisturizer from L’Oréal called “Age Perfect Golden Age”. It has SPF 20, and because of that, it’s perfect for everyday use. It’s important to not forget that we still get UV-rays on our skin even though there’s less sun than in the summer. That is one of the reasons why I always try to make sure my day cream has SPF in it. During the night I’ve actually switched out my night cream with a hydrating mask. I put on a thin layer before going to bed and sleep with it all night. The next day I just use my cleanser to wash off in case there’s anything left on my skin. I really like being able to boost my skin like that during the night, and I feel like it helps my skin heal and builds itself up again. Thanks, Raging Stars!
The skin around the eyes is precious
The eye area has very thin skin. It’s important to take extra good care of the skin in that area, and because of that, I use an eye cream from L’Occitane. It also includes hyaluronic acid, as I mentioned to you guys earlier, and really helps to improve both the look and feel of the eye area. I sometimes struggle with puffy eyes and dark circles, and this cream is working to avoid that, which makes me very happy. Let us hope that I have the same feeling in a month when I’ve tried it a bit more. I am very happy to see that Raging Stars has a lot of great brands and products for the skin. I have heard so many great things about this eye cream so I cannot wait to use it even more. My eyes are loving it so far.
Don’t forget about your body
The typical thing after a long summer is to forget about the skin on the body. I for one apply sunscreen and aftersun almost every day but forget about my dry legs when autumn is here. Because of that, I purchased the Dr. Hauschka Hydrating Body Milk and will be using that to keep my skin smooth all autumn and winter. It’s kind of strange that I just forget about it in autumn when my skin gets soooo dry and actually in a way needs it more. In addition to using body milk, I use a nice body scrub on my whole body once a week. It really helps me keep my skin moisturized and avoid dry spots.
Making sure my makeup stays flawless these colder days
I usually update my makeup bag as the weather changes and get colder. It’s because as I mentioned before I struggle a bit with dry spots and this tends to mess up my makeup as well unless I make sure to apply more moisture to my face in my makeup routine as well. I try to avoid too many powdered products and keep on using my liquid products, as they tend to keep my skin nicer. The one I’ve been using a lot is the Max Factor Miracle Touch Foundation, which also includes hyaluronic acid. I dab it on with a sponge and the result is great. If I feel the need for concealer, I use the Max Factor Mastertouch Concealer just in the necessary areas. I don’t do it every day, but depending on what my plans are, I put it on. For example, now that Christmas is creeping on closer each day… There are dinners, parties, and a lot of fun happenings that make it even more important to have flawless makeup.
A couple of new pieces of clothing in my closet
I had to purchase some clothing while I was at it. Raging Stars has a lot of amazing brands, so I got tempted. I got a new pair of jeans and a jacket that is perfect for fall. I also purchased two different dresses and look forward to using them at Christmas dinners and also on different occasions before that. Hopefully, I’ll have an event or two before December, haha. Me and the girls usually do a Christmas dinner every year and we do the Secret Santa game. So much fun. This year it’s actually my year hosting it, and I really look forward to it. It’s so great spending time with my best friends, at a special event of the year – not just everyday life. I really enjoy it, and my countdown has started already.
I am so happy with the goodies I got from Raging Stars
All in all, I am very happy with the products I purchased at Raging Stars, and how the whole process was super easy. I loved that I could do it all in one process, as it was possible to find both my skincare, makeup, and fashion items at their online store. It made the process so much faster since I found everything in one place. I look forward to trying the products even more than what I’ve done already. Maybe I’ll try ordering some other products next time around, depending on how happy I am with the result from these ones in the long run. I want to know if you guys have tried any of these products before, and in that case what you think about the products? Tell me what you guys think about my shopping spree at Raging Stars!
