Lily Aldridge’s Skincare Routine: My Reaction & Thoughts | #SKINCARE
hi guys welcome back I have another skincare reaction video for you and today it is Lily Aldridge and if you don’t know she is she’s a Victoria’s Secret model she’s a model in general but I think what we know her more for is Victoria’s Secret and she is on Harper’s Bazaar go to bed with me which you guys know I love I will leave a link below in the description box we’re gonna take a look at her skincare routine then I just got this it says super aging super aging serum it’s gonna eat super anti-aging serum and I’m like yes that is everything I need in a jar my routine changes day-to-day when I’m home with my kids and it’s you know I don’t have this luxury of doing a 15th step routine so my stuff might be like three things for the nighttime routine but since I have this like luxurious hotel room and I have the time I’m going to do a really self-care pampering night in for myself and so I will start with taking off my makeup and I alright so I actually had to stop and be like how old is Lily Aldridge and apparently she’s like it she’s like about 34 and she has two kids and I didn’t know any of this about her she looks amazing I thought she was still in her early 20s so that says a lot but uh okay there we go so I’m setting the tone for you guys she is 34 years old or at least that’s what wikipedia says have I would say combinations can I get really oily and dry I don’t know how it’s possible but it’s a thing and I have it a lot of these things will help with that especially like exfoliator I feel like it helps me with my combination skin and keeping it even but my first product I’m going to use today to take off my makeup is these RMS beauty wipes they’re basically coconut oil and they take everything off so if I have like mascara on from the day from work or if I have like a major red lip and I’m on my way to the airport to go home I can have these in my bag and it takes everything off amazingly if I was at home I have like coconut oil next to my bedside table but I don’t travel with that because they’re really heavy in a glass so these are great for on-the-go for me so I’ll just start with taking all the weight all right can we just say that this is like my nightmare wipe I don’t know why it’s like combining coconut I wonder if it’s actually coconut oil actually I have to look this up is this actually coconut oil or it isn’t is it like coconut oil bits like a different type it’s like a fractionated coconut oil or like some kind of a derivative of coconut oil and it’s a wipe I needed I need to know this is this just like pure coconut oil being wiped all over her face that’s been sitting there alright confirmed I just looked at the ingredients and this is definitely my worst nightmare it’s a makeup wipe of coconut oil so it’s essentially just it looks like ingredient-wise it’s literally just coconut oil so it’s coconut oil soaked wipes is this ha ha I’m like this I can’t even speak you guys okay so you guys know I don’t like coconut oil it’s not clogging her pores it looks like because she uses it and she doesn’t have any acne so coconut oil she must be one of those people she must be that’s what I decided she must be one of those people where coconut oil works for her it doesn’t clog her pores obviously no one was marketing these to me but but they sound like a nightmare to me so pass but I mean I guess let’s watch let’s watch let’s watch how she’s doing this oh and the thing I love about this is I can pretty much get all my makeup off with one way so that is really handy I’ve actually told so many makeup artists about it because they leave so much for us at the end of the day they’ll have like q-tips and cotton pads with all these different creams and I’m like you just need to get these it takes everything off on one pad and we can take it to go with us which is so nice so you know for me I just want to always get home to my baby so I’m like as fast as possible through everything to get home look at how easy that was like it’s gone Oh mascara is gone my makeup is pretty much off BAM makeups off I’m gonna you guys obviously oil coconut oil it’s it’s an oil it’s gonna break down the makeup and everything I wouldn’t say that the makeup is gone I’m hoping because I’m seeing her pull out a scrunchie that she’s gonna actually cleanse her face now I find that coconut oil still leaves a film on your skin even after you use a second cleanser but again it must not make her break out so there we go and you know I understand that feeling of wanting to get home to your babies I’m in the same boat I totally get that and that’s when it sounds like she’s using it only on its own and I would wish that she would use something else so hopefully she’s gonna cleanse oh and in this instance my hair up because I want to keep this gorgeous blowout you know when I’m at home I don’t have time to blow my hair out so I’m gonna savor this blow up for as long as I can with this slip hair tie love it it’s silk it’s really pretty so I can wear it out and about but it also will help with know putting creases in my hair which I love I’m gonna look sort of this so my next step is I love silk scrunchies you guys I like the slip ones but I find them to be a little more expensive so I found another brand called Lilly silk on Amazon and I love it really nice ones they’re the ones that I’m always using this is glow face bomb anything that says balm in it and glow I’m sold that’s all I want is a glowy bumpy face so this is really good it smells good it feels good I’ve been into balms lately for like as my cleanser I think it’s makes my skin still feel soft and supple which I really like but takes everything off that makes me close call me glow so and it’s got these little kernels in it I fall asleep with makeup on regularly like it just depends on my day and what time I get home I try if like I’m just really exhausted I’ll try to take at least my face makeup off at least my skin is breathing but I’ve definitely woken up with a full set of lashes and gorgeous eye makeup still on I’m like mmm this is actually quite nice I actually did a makeup with Hong recently who does some amazing makeup and I got home I float flew home after the job and I was so tired and I used the wipe on my face but I left that I makeup on and I woke up the next day and I was like honestly if his makeup looks may-jor and I might just keep this eye makeup on for the day that’s like my husband’s like you you look so beautiful everybody was like look at you all dolled up for the day like no big deal I did it myself okay so I basically just um got some more water to take this bomb off and it’s helping get rid of any extra kind of makeup and my skin feels so soft that’s the thing I love about a bomb instead of like a soapy cleanser it’s like your skin still feels so nice that is so this is okay so I think it’s decided I think I knew this already because most most supermodels are this freaks of nature that’s what we’re gonna call Lily ostrich because she doesn’t seem to have any breakouts or even any hyper pigmentation from breakouts and she’s using coconut oil wipes you even saw just now she used another bomb cleanser and then you know wiped a little bit more and there was still definitely makeup on her face which means that she’s going at home with makeup on her face still if she’s using the coconut oil wipes and then she’s going to sleep like she said sometimes with makeup on waking up still wearing that makeup and feeling like she looks good and everything I think it does affect your skin over time and you need to be careful with your skin she’s a she’s pretty rough with her skin she’s doing a lot of wiping the wipes she’s using she’s using the wash rag afterwards to also wipe off the bomb Carly just read the ingredients to me and that she borrows um you guys it has coconut oil in it so he’s like layering coconut oil on top of her coconut oil along with a lot a lot of other oils on her face I know for a fact that that does not almost apply on your skin like that is just not an emulsifying cleansing balm at all so she’s just got lots of oil on her skin she’s not going in for another cleanse she’s gonna go in with some alpha beta Universal daily peel pads this is kind of funny to me because she started with like all the coconut oil and stuff and then she’s gonna go in with something that’s harsh like this which I’m not anti these peel pads it’s very on the opposite ends of the spectrum it’s like she suddenly is gonna go in with something really intense maybe it doesn’t feel so intense cuz she’s got a layer of oil on her skin or something dr.
gross alphabetic extra strength daily peel I love these so much it’s such if I’m like have a big shoot and I’m shooting then on the next day I will use these and my skin is so glowy in the morning like noticeably different I think using them like once or twice a week is amazing and when I first did it I would do both steps but now you know I extra-strength so I’ll just leave it on and then after two minutes you do step two but I try I kind of like just leave it on and let it marinate and I have so many more steps that it all kind of like blends in together but I’ll try to leave it for like two minutes uninterrupted so I get the like full exfoliation effect especially my hands because your hands a ch2 so I try to keep this all anti-aging and I think these are really good for anti-aging and just like getting that really beautiful glow so I did step one and now after two minutes I’m doing step two and I’m taking it off with this wipe now I have a beautiful exfoliation my skin is toned hydrated exfoliated okay so next step sorry guys if the lighting has changed it’s because I took a like a 15-minute break because I heard my baby start crying so I had to go check on her anyway this is hilarious to me I’m not against using these peel pads I think they’re very strong what’s funny is I think that the coconut oil that she puts on her skin is kind of buffering it a little bit but what she’s essentially doing I don’t know if you guys saw me like leaning in to look at her face a little bit more I was trying to see if she has texture to her skin I don’t see anything I was wondering it’s like she likes to use these because maybe she has texture on her skin or something like that clogged pore or something but I’m not really noticing that it’s always hard to say with these kinds of videos we don’t know if the lighting is or anything it’s almost like she’s counteracting right like she’s got the this whole coconut oil cleansing routine and then she goes into something like this that’s really harsh and needs to exfoliate all the build-up that she’s getting but I would I would argue that if she feels like she needs to use these because she’s getting build-up it’s because she’s using that coconut oil so that’s just something to think about we’re not seeing actual you know acne we’re not seeing pimples on her face but that doesn’t mean that she’s not getting clogged pores and then she feels like she needs to use something like the alpha-beta peel pads the alpha-beta peel pads have a combination of ajs and phas in the first pad and then the second pad has retinol in it which I didn’t even realize I had retinol in it until you guys had pointed that out to me in another video with Katie I love sheet masks and since I’m having a nice night in I’m gonna take the time for myself and do a little sheet mask because I think sheet masks are a really great way to you know keep your skin healthy and beautiful and shiny and glowy and not look tired and deep hydration especially under your eyes all these things when I’m traveling so much and I’m not sleeping his lot this is a day of self-care and I just I feel like being indulgent and I do face masks all the time at home anyways so maybe in real life I wouldn’t do an exfoliator after that or something like that but I’m gonna do like all my favourite things that I would do for myself I love an eye mask too because that area is so sensitive I don’t have time to do them separately so I am going to put them on at the same time and just let them marinate together like who has 40 minutes to do separate masks on their face during the day so I literally do this in the car sometimes on my way to work or I do this a lot on airplanes because I travel on airplane a lot to get to work it’s a great conversation starter people are always like what is on your face like it’s hard to what not walk by somebody in public wearing these and being like what are you doing tell me everything and even if I have extras I will give them to like um flight attendants if they ask about it or in my neighbor on the seat and we’ll just sit there and have a nice laugh together and my daughter thinks it’s hilarious when I wear these because I look kind of crazy but honestly this smells so good and I know if I just sit and watch like the crown or some great show that I’m watching on my Netflix I can just sit there and get this extra health care my face is gonna be so moist and hydrated and I will be ready to wake up glowing I usually will leave this on for like 20 minutes also like the extra stuff I’ll put on my hands also get the stuff and put it on my neck and chest because that’s such an important area to keep hydrated too my makeup artist taught me that she’s like don’t waste any of that that extra cream in there that’s good stuff so like I’ll kind of like put it on all those like delicate areas sometimes when I wear this I feel like mrs.
Doubtfire she has the whipped cream mask on and it’s like melting off her face so this has been on for 20 minutes wink wink and I’m gonna take off the next step I’m gonna do the Sun a setting so the light might be changing so sorry about that you guys I tried to knock out as many videos in this day and the Sun is now disappearing so I will try to finish up quickly she’s using the mast in the exact order that they’re supposed to be in in the skincare routine but I would argue she doesn’t need to use both of those masks she just needs to use one of them because and it’s just a sheep mask truly because she’s essentially getting the benefits from the sheep mask that she’s beginning from the eye mask and that will help her get the benefits to her eye area and then she can just saved the eye masks for later the eye masks have arguably just a couple of nicer ingredients but they’re serving the same purpose so you don’t need to use both of them at the same time that’s just you know it’s a little just extra essentially obviously she can do what she wants if she wants to do that it’s not hurting her skin it makes me a little bit sad though to know that she’s on airplanes telling people to use these on airplanes sleep with them do whatever you know let them dry out it’s the worst place to be doing your skincare routine in my opinion so the thing to just know about these kinds of hydrating masks you don’t want them to dry out you want to make sure that you’re using them just like you would a serum you’re going to take them off you can add more serums to your skin but then you want to make sure that you keep the hydration into your skin with an occlusive which is usually your moisturizer do is vitamin C is core organics I really love this line I love you know I was able to use this while I was nursing with my son and I love the product so much I obviously will continue using it ro you know that I don’t have to use everything being natural but I still love when I find powders that are natural that are you know superior to the products that aren’t so I think if you can find stuff that’s natural and works for you in your skin it’s always a bonus but you know not everything in this routine is on the core it is amazing I like that she’s acknowledging to you guys that she’s got a mix of natural and them not I always just find it funny that you that a person even cares about her products being natural versus just working when they have a product like the alpha-beta peel pads because that’s just that cells look acid that’s you know the AJ’s and you know those can be naturally derived and everything but she’s also got the retinol in there and everything and it’s just it’s like the opposite of like the natural movement it’s just I would rather her tell us that she likes this product because it’s a nice product right or that it works for her skin and not be like I like natural products I think people look quite natural with working better or with like keeping them healthier keeping them safe for something toxin free I’ve never used this core organics product it I looked at it it has lots of oils in it it has you know some nice natural ingredients in it there are also some ingredients that I think you know would potentially irritate your skin and I think those are things that you should really be thinking about is how does this ingredient how do these ingredients work for my skin how does this feel does this do something that I want it to do and not look at it is is this a natural are these natural ingredients and everything because you know you can make any natural ingredient bad for you too it doesn’t matter it’s just is it working for you and I think that’s the way to look at things I know for a fact now you guys that she has really resilient skin probably doesn’t break out that often and I and I’ll tell you why she has she had salicylic acid in her routine she had the AJ’s in a routine to be AJ’s she had retinol in her routine and then she went ahead and she added the vitamin C again you can do it this way there were all the oils and stuff like that so I would have actually used the vitamin C after the masks but sometimes when you’re putting all of those active ingredients together it can make your skin so irritated and her skins not even turning pink it’s not even flushed from touching it or anything like that so she can handle a lot on her skin so this is something to keep in mind I tell you guys these things because everyone’s skin is different she definitely has very resilient skin so keep that in mind okay then I just got this it says super aging super aging serum it’s gonna eat you super anti aging serum and yes that is everything I need in a jar so I’m gonna add that to my routine I’ve been trying it the last few nights and it’s really hydrating and I really love that so I’m gonna add that on top with the vitamin C I’m going to put on the skin there it is the dr.
Barbara Sturm you know every celebrity has to have at least one if not all of her products in their routine PS I got to try some of her products I had some samples I tried them out it was nice it wasn’t worth the price but not bad not bad um this is actually one of the nicer products in her skincare line in my opinion it’s just a brightening it’s a brightening serum essentially it’s nice it’s gonna feed your skin is it anti aging I wouldn’t call that I would say it’s more like a nice it’s gonna give you a nicer nicer glowy skin in my opinion I would have put this before the Cora organics to be honest just because of the different textures because the core organics is lots of oils I’m assuming the barbarous term one is a little bit thinner so I would have just swapped the order that she’s using those in I don’t think she needs it though only because she had the hydrating mask on so it’s really just it’s adding a lot and she said that this is gonna be a routine where she’s just kind of going for it and indulging herself since it’s like a night in kind of routine for her so it’s just something I would say so skin food is really thick and really nice especially when you’re traveling a lot it’s a great thing to put on overnight because it’s really thick and like it will absorb while you’re sleeping which i think is really nice because kind of more rich creams as I’m getting older are really nice and help keep my skin looking really supple so just put that ball over look at my hands I also really like it like on my nails my cuticle it’s all that kind of thing like everywhere you can keep really hydrated and it smells nice it reminds me of fruity pebbles I don’t know why like anytime I smell it I’m like it’s really great lots of makeup artists use this I would say like 50% of the makeup artists I work with use this as the base before putting on makeup because it’s really um like shiny and pretty so it just makes makeup look really like beautiful and pictures so a lot of my products are now first off I love that product that’s a really really nice product I had seen this product on Instagram a while back I decided to purchase it and I absolutely love this product it is a very nice product it is not expensive at all and it is it’s just ultra rich and ultra thick I think she’s got resilient dry skin period like that is the skin that she’s got and and I just think that you have to be mindful of that if you are watching her routine and you’re thinking like this might work for me keep that in mind she’s got very resilient skin control they’re not all natural but a lot of them are when I can find products that are natural and work really well I’ll stick with that you know I was pregnant and nursing so for a long time everything in my routine was all natural so I was able to find so many amazing products because why not that’s awesome but not everything is like I’m starting to put things back in my routine that have stuff like retinol in it which I couldn’t use while I was pregnant or nursing so you know those kind of things get added in but most of my stuff is as natural as I can get my next step there’s something that happens when you become pregnant you guys think oh using that word again I know you guys are probably sick of me talking about pregnancy but there is something that happens you it changes you it completely changes the way you think about things and what you’re using and you start wondering like if something’s gonna harm your baby or harm you no you just you get so in your head about these things and I see this I see that she’s like it’s nice why not if it works and everything and I get that I just think it’s one of those things where I think you shouldn’t worry too much unless your doctor your dermatologist said maybe avoid that ingredient retinol for instance then you know you’re you’re fine don’t worry so much about toxins and everything like that I think it’s more worried about what is working for your skin and avoid only the things while you’re pregnant that your doctor says to avoid I don’t do all of these steps every night my steps rotate daily nightly sometimes I do exfoliation once a week but I wanted to show you all of my favorite things because it’s so fun and why not and like I want to share as much as I can so we’re like pick which ones sounded interesting to you and try it and you know hopefully something about routine you’ll learn to love another thing I like love lip balm and I cannot sleep without moist lip I actually can’t do much like my trainers will make fun of me when I’m working out like my lip balm will come with me to each station because I just love it it’s like underneath my pillow at night balm very important part of my routine iPhone this is taught to heart I agree I left palm I almost never have anything to say about any of the lip balm so but I agree I love lip balm too especially and I like a thick occlusive lip balm upper boosted contouring eye balm lifting and firming yes please thank you very much this is what this mom who doesn’t sleep very much needs in her life I need all the lifting and firming that I can get so this is a really nice one like I said I’m really into balls lately I just like everything to be is like moist and just balmy and dewy and just make my skin look just really fresh I love this balm it’s really nice and the packaging is very beautiful before I go to sleep it’s bright little perfume you guys know how I feel about Iowa I bombs and eye creams and all that kind of stuff so yeah she essentially just put on another oil it even has a little bit more coconut oil on it I’m sure it feels nice it’s like over $200 for this balm it has lots of ingredients in it but that I want to say that that will Lida is like 10 bucks or something it’s essentially serving the same purpose and she could have definitely used that around her eyes also so this is just going that extra step it’s like being extra I’m not even gonna criticize her for I’m just pointing this out in case she doesn’t know it or in case you guys don’t know it you don’t need to add that balm in because she just got all of that in with honestly like everything that she was using and then she put the will lead a bomb on she could have just focused it around her eyes a little bit more too she would have gotten pretty much the same effect you can also spray it on your pillow if you wanted this happens to be by me will it all just perfumes this is summat it’s really you know warm and cozy and gets me excited to be cozy and snuggly in my bed and my silk PJs I’m probably going to go lie down listen to a little meditation Candle have a nice little relaxing mom’s night in with myself meditation you know also a good time to do that face mask would be if you were like just having a little relax in your bed listening to a little meditation I like headspace app it’s really nice and my last step will be going to sleep I love a Dipti candle and I love silk eye mask I don’t get to use them anymore really with babies put on your perfume if you want at night the only thing I would say is definitely don’t spray it like it she did kind of like a toner Alma’s style I don’t think she meant to so I’m not really gonna be like whoa what was that all about but she definitely was like spraying it like that I wouldn’t want your fragrance your actual perfume especially to be on your face so just keep that in mind it’s like now do the little pulse point things maybe put on your clothing if you want to she obviously wanted to plug her perfume which is I get that I totally understand that that’s my only that would be my only note but otherwise meditation probably one of the best things that she does for her skin and for her body and her mind and her soul so what would I change about her skincare routine I would move that Barbara storm serum up before the vitamin C and only because of vitamin C in this case was an oil-based it seemed like it was oil-based or I had a lot of oils in it it’s like water before oil I guess is the way to think about if you don’t want to go like there Dennis – thickest other than that in my perfect world I would change obviously the coconut oil cleansers in the beginning I’d love for her to use a regular cleansing oil that emulsifies feels nice and really rinses off of your skin and then some kind of a gel cleanser very gentle maybe hydrating one because we know she has dry skin she’s definitely got dry skin because she can use hope she can use the bolita and the other bombs all that kind of stuff on her skin you know when you’re using oils on your skin you have to exfoliate more so that tells me why she’s using those alpha beta pads cuz they’re really strong those are not those are those are strong those are sensitive skin people can not use those absolutely not so I guess that would be the only thing I would change even if she wanted to like just hold on for dear life – that coconut oil in the beginning I would hope that she would use maybe a gel cleanser to get it all off afterwards and the other thing Lily quit telling people to use face masks on an airplane you might dehydrating some people by telling them to wear those face masks all the time and let them dry out like that so anyway that was Lily Aldridge she’s gorgeous you guys it’s like it’s hard to review someone’s skincare routine when you’re looking at someone who’s basically perfect so it’s just stuff to keep in mind she’s got resilient skin and I and I appreciate it I felt that when she was talking about being a mom and stuff I love saying her routine learning all about her and realizing that she’s actually not in her 20s she’s in her mid-30s and she’s got kids it actually gives me more respect for her actually because I know there’s a lot going on tell me the comments below who you want me to review next if you guys had any questions about this find me in my private Facebook group find me on instagram at susan yarra and i’ll talk to you soon
