My *updated* morning routine - with FRÉ Skincare!


Hi lovely peeps! Did you have an awesome 4th of July? It's always a little awkward when a holiday falls right smack dab in the middle of the work week, no? But either way, I'll take a day off! It was a nice to break up the week :)

I wanted to update you guys on my morning skincare routine.  I've talked a lot about favorites here and there over the past couple of months, but I wanted to show you a glimpse into my morning routine on a work day, and what products I'm actually using on a daily basis.  Here's an inside peak!

1. 5:25 AM: Wake up (ugh!), pit stop in the bathroom, put on workout clothes, and head out the door for either 1) a strength workout, 2) a walk/run, or 3) some light stretching before the day gets started.  I'm out the door by 5:45 at the latest.  (*Disclaimer* sometimes I definitely snooze, but I'm trying to get better with my sleep habits!)


2. 6:30 AM: Get back from my morning workout, brush my teeth with my Tom's toothpaste, and hop in the shower.  I use my use my Dr. Bronner's almond castle soap, Wella shampoo and conditioner (still trying to transition!), and use FRÉ Purify Me face wash.  I love how smooth my face feels, and the exfoliating beads in the face wash really do a great job cleaning my skin (without leaving it feeling stripped) after my sweaty workout.

3. 6:45 AM: Skincare routine time! I use my FRÉ Revive Me serum, Josh Rosebrook tinted SPF daily moisturizer (depending on the day, sometimes the FRÉ is all I need because it's so moisturizing!) and Belief eye cream.  I use my Seaweed Bath Co. body lotion, brush through my wet hair, and because it's been so hot out, I've been towel-drying my hair and letting it air-dry the rest of the morning.  I also swipe on some Schmidt's Charcoal Magnesium deodorant


4. 7:00 AM: I head out of the bathroom, grab a Kombucha, put on some makeup and my work outfit. I quickly pack my lunch while making breakfast (currently eggs and toast!), and grab my work bag.  Then I'm out the door by 7:30, and ready for my busy day ahead!

FRÉ was kind enough to send me the 123FRE kit recently to incorporate into my morning routine. As someone who REALLY gives something a thorough test prior to incorporating it fully into their routine, I can tell you that the Purify Me and Revive Me have become integral steps in my routine. I love using FRÉ in the morning because it's specifically formulated for sweaty skin. And I also absolutely LOVE that FRÉ is 100% vegan and cruelty free. And even better - for every skincare set sold, an Argan tree is planted in Morocco to empower women communities that harvest our core ingredient Argan, and to protect the environment. I MEAN -- COME ON!!  I have a discount code for you lovely people if you want to check FRÉ out - it's MUSINGSBYMEGHAN25, which you can enter at checkout!

What things do you always incorporate into your morning routine? I'd love to hear!
