SKINCARE ADVENT CALENDAR 2023

SKINCARE, TOOLS, AND BEAUTY- WHAT REALLY WORKS?

This series should answer the question I receive most often, “What really works?”

I have created a skincare advent calendar based on my favorites. 

I have a ton of skincare, makeup, and gadgets. Here are my 25 favorite skincare and beauty tools, many of which I’ve been using for over five years. 

For my community members, there are some new treats as well. These are my tried and true favorites I use. I am keeping this calendar PG so all the products are easily found on Amazon in the highlighted links, and promo codes where available.

I’ve categorized the items into: 

-Hydration

-Brightening

-Devices

-Tools

-Beauty

Hydration is critical to glowing skin. Here’s the countdown of my five favorite skin moisturizers.

Hydration 

  • 1 Daiso Mask – The silicon sheet mask cover. This cover locks on top of your sheet mask, allowing for longer hydration since the environment is not actively drying your sheet mask out. You can even use a face cream and lock the mask on top for deep hydration. 
  • 2 COSRX Snail Mask  – The COSRX Snail Mucin Sheet Mask remains my most reordered and used sheet mask to date. The mucin is extremely hydrating and has a ton of serum in a pouch, perfect for pulling down your neck.
  • 3 EasyDew EGF Serum- The Easy Dew EGF serum. This serum features epidermal growth factors to encourage collagen. I typically microneedle with this amazing serum, but it can be applied topically as well.
  • 4 Fulvic Acid Spray – This Fulvic Mineral Mist. I’ve only had it a few weeks, and it’s quickly become my go-to spray. I love how glowy it leaves my skin. It locks in moisture, and it’s great for hair, too.
  • 5 Wander Beauty Undereye Patches  – The Wander Beauty baggage claim eye masks. Not only do they offer great selfies, but the foil lining traps in heat, allowing the serum to penetrate deeper.

Brighter skin looks younger and radiant. Here are my five favorite skin brighteners.

DAYS 6-10 BRIGHTENING

DEVICES

I use a lot of skin gadgets to improve my skin at home. Here’s my five favorite devices

  • 1 Dr. Pen M8S Microneedling changed my life, and it all started with the Dr. Pen. I recently bought the new Dr Pen M8S. It has a strong metal build similar to the previous model, but the cartridges and the storage box have been upgraded, which I appreciate.
  • 2 NIRA PRECISON LASER Code: Kaos10 Is the Nira Precision Laser. I’ve used this non-ablative laser for over two years to strengthen the skin around my eyes. It shoots a heated beam into your skin to cause micro trauma for collagen induction and is safe to use daily. It also expedites healing after procedures that create bruises.
  • 3 High Frequency Wand Clinical Nuderma Clinical High Frequency wand. Stimulating my scalp for long, strong hair is a focus, and I use this wand three times per week to encourage stronger hair. This set includes six fusion wands to use all over your body, including treating bacne.
  • 4 Maysama Red LED Panel Code: nkaos10 I recently received the Maysama RED LED panel and was blown away by its power and its new technology. This panel features 660 and 850nm wavelengths and a pulse setting that reduces inflammation a side effective from stagnant LED Light sources.
  • 5 Revive Mini Sonique 10%  Code: Kaos10 I have many skin cleansing devices, and I love the Revive Mini Sonique because it’s inexpensive and features blue and red LED lights. Besides the soothing sonic vibration that deep cleans pores, its simple design also makes pushing in serums simple.

I use a lot of skin gadgets to improve my skin at home. Here are my five favorite Tools

TOOLS

  • 1 DJI Osmo Pocket 3 https://urlgeni.us/amzn/_Xb5qDJIomsmo3 I have tools for video making, and this new DJI Osmo Pocket 3 is killing it! I have all three models, and this version is a huge upgrade. The vertical 3K filming option is incredible for a creator, and the active tracker is the best I’ve ever used. Its small size means it’s always with me for smooth b roll! Honestly, there are so many features and not enough time:)
  • 2 TCA ACID Code: KAOS20 My favorite skin acid is TCA. Over the years, this has become harder to source, but makeup artist choice still offers TCA along with other skin-peeling acids.
  • 3 Disposable 10R Scalpel Blades These are by far my favorite dermaplaning scalpels. These 10R blades have a rounded end perfect for shaving your face. They come individually sanitized, ready for use, and then easy to dispose of.
  • 4 UV Sanitization Box If you microneedle, clip nails, or have other beauty torture devices, you need a UV sanitization box. This one has a lot of space and even has a USB and USBC for charging devices while disinfecting.
  • 5 Laduora LED BEAUTY WAND Kaos15 for 15% LINK The Laduora Wand has been a constant travel companion. It has both red and blue light, heat, and microcurrent, perfect for depuffing on flights. Plus, it’s the size of a pen, perfect for taking anywhere.

BEAUTY

BEAUTY Here’s my five favorite Beauty items.

  • 1 Dolce Glow Spray Tan Light to Med  Code: KIMBERLYPRATT Because I’m very fair, I’ve tested a ton of self-tanners. This Dolce Glow Spray mist is hands down my favorite. I use the Light to Medium formula, and it gives me a quick, natural tan. It’s an aerosol can that mists all over your body and dries super fast. In fact, I spray my body and then throw on my clothes; it’s truly a great product.
  • 2 Donna Karen Cashmere Deodorant I love this deodorant! I was introduced to the Donna Karen Cashmere deodorant 15 years ago, and it is still my favorite. The smell is fabulous, and I feel so luxurious even when I’m applying deodorant.
  • 3 DP HUE Gloss This summer, I thrashed my hair, and I’m noticing the impact now. I recently used this DP HUE gloss to coat my strands in the shower. It was incredible how masking in this formula for 20 minutes made my hair feel so soft and healthy.
  • 4 Brows Benefit Fluff Up Brow Wax I love a big imperfect brow, and this Benefit Fluff Up Brow Wax gives me extra texture, and you can use it to faux laminate your brows. This is different from a brow gel; this is like lash primer; in fact, it might be the exact same formula.
  • 5 Oribe Dry Texture Spray For over a year, the Oribe Dry Texture Spray has been my favorite setting hair spray. It’s not a stronghold, but the smell is everything, and the texture isn’t stiff; like Goldie Locks said, “It’s just right.” In fact, I’m giving this spray at this year’s favorite things party.

I call it a “syringe bouquet” just kidding! Next week should be a fun week of sharing insight.

My peptide live series on YouTube which I call “Walkie-Talkies” because I literally walk on my treadmill for an hour and a half with my research notes making sense of how these things work.

The reason I’m loving this series is because after a long time of feeling, I could only share on skincare. As someone who loves change and new interests, feeling chained to a single concept was becoming unfulfilling. And I wasn’t feeling creative or inspired, similar to writers block.

Getting my Hashimotos diagnosis at the beginning of this year I feel was extremely life changing for me. I think of it as an incredible gift and blessing.

It gave me this desire to research again. The world of peptides is even more immersive than beauty injectables, so I don’t plan on being any expert on the subject for a long time.

I hope my Walkie Talkie LIVES help you learn along side me as I build a catalog.

The amazing aspect of this experience is that with beauty injectables I never dove past the level of what the product was claiming and why it should work. Peptides have taken me to the cellular level. I feel my knowledge is exploding on how certain skincare’s work at a molecular level.

It’s extremely inspiring that these events seem to be chained together in the best way to help me understand my body more fully.

I think this understanding helps me make better decisions, now that it’s not such a mystery.

This really should be a HUMAN CLASS that everyone needs to take. 
It needs to take the place of Algebra 2 😂

ENERGY IS OFF THE CHARTS!!!

Honestly, I didn’t think I could feel this well again.
I’m seriously a peptide believer! I don’t understand why these aren’t more mainstream.

I don’t even remember a time in high school that I could recover this quickly.

The craziest experience was feeling like I had spent all of my ATP and then I felt a physical surge of power. It’s completely identifiable and consequently motivating.

I did a two minute cold plunge after my gym time. My arms felt completely spent. Now two hours later they are normal. 
The true test will be at 5am tomorrow morning, when I go to yoga. I’ll keep you posted:)

Currently, I’m packing up my bag for tomorrow’s yoga class, then I’ll work at the market for a few hours, before heading to @timmiebones for my hair.

It’s been months since I’ve had my hair done. When it started falling out last fall I wanted to wait and see how bad it would get before doing anything.

The shed seemed to stop in December but I didn’t want to touch it yet. I wanted to see if hair started growing. At the beginning of February I felt my hair had shown recovery progress so I scheduled an appointment.

Next week I head fish to the Bay Area for one of those scalp spa’s…I can’t wait!!!

My Favorite Day of the week…

On Fridays,I take the boys snowboarding @northstar_california 
I grew up skiing here and now my boys have too!

Shared experiences with my boys are what I look forward to and are what keep me motivated each day.

We used the @insta360 and as you can see we need to do a much better job of clearing the lens.

I built this reel with the Insta360 App and @capcutapp since I’m more familiar with tool.

I do these completely on my phone. It’s why I like the 360 more than the GoPro. Plus the GoPros set up is horrible for changing batteries, we have to carry a 🪛 just to unlock it or change it between helmets. And then the footage needs to transferred to a 🖥️ so annoying!

I like that @insta360 gives us all the angles, connects to my phone, and has the invisible stick.

I don’t like that the lens is impossible to keep clear and that the buttons are hard to push with gloves.

Somehow others keep the lens clear so we’ll need to improve our strategy.

I make these treasures for myself. I share them with you because I know I’m not alone in wanting to capture and save family moments. I think the biggest challenge for everyone is actually doing something with what you recorded.

I haven’t used it yet, but the Insta360 app has a tool that will build the video for you. This could be a huge game changer when it comes to actually creating with what you capture.

I shared the full video of this day and the realties over @love.those.boys 

It’s hilarious listening to the boys razz one another 😂

20% OFF!!! Comment “LINK” for DM links sent to your inbox.

I’ve shared about my @nira_skin laser since 2020!!! Over the years they have added to their product line & today they are launching their NEW Peptide cream.

This protocol with 2 lasers in combination treat your eyes, face, neck & hands!  You know the neck &  hands really give our age away:)

I’m excited in 2024 to utilize this protocol more to boost the collagen I sacrificed with weightloss.
Life is a constant work in progress and I know this very well 😂

This treatment is so effective & simple I think I could probably do it while simultaneously LIVE streaming on the treadmill during our “Walkie-Talkies” & next week I plan to kick off our LIVE chat on YouTube utilizing this collagen stimulating protocol.

The new Peptide cream released today is luxurious, has peptides plus Matrixyl 3000 & Argirline to smooth your skin. 

As we’ve recently learned, peptides are signaling agents to our cellular membranes & these skin peptides signal to our cells to produce collagen.

Perhaps injection is outside of your scope but topicals not only hydrate & help your skin look hydrated, they stimulate collagen.

We are busier than ever & multitasking my skincare to achieve my skin goals is essential. 
I’m a mom of four active boys, I’m an entrepreneur & run a business that employs many people, & as you know, I have a desire to take care of myself professionally at home.

Making & keeping costly appointments robs me of efficacy, & although, I VALUE my doctors office for aspects I can’t do myself. In order to up efficiency I do as much as I can at home because collagen stimulus requires constant triggering.

With efficiency & money in mind, you should test this collection since NIRA promises younger looking skin in 90 days guaranteed or your money back.

Below 👇🏻 is the Ultimate Anti-Aging Collection & Youth Renewal Peptide cream links! 

The Nira collection includes all 4 products 😍
