Skincare products I can't live without!

We can all agree that in order for your makeup to look and sit well, you must take care of your skin. From removing your makeup before going to bed to pampering and hydrating your face, it is important to have a skincare routine to help maintain healthy and clear skin. Here are my top skincare products that I do not go a day without using.

1.   Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum + T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

I have been using these products every morning and every night for over a year now and my skin has improved a lot. I can definitely say that this helps even out uneven skin tones, soothes the skin and helps maintain firmness.

2.    Belif The True Cream- Aqua Bomb

This is such a holy grail for me! Right after I wash my face in the morning and dry off, I put this all over my face and neck and INSTANTLY feel hydrated. It’s gel-like consistency makes it so refreshing and spa like!

3.    Clarisonic Cleansing Brush

This has been an OG item for over 3 year now and I still have yet to find something to replace it. I love that it completely removes all filth from my face in a matter of minutes and allows my skin to breathe. Clarisonic also sells various brush head selections which allow you to pick the one that best works for your skin!

4.    First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser

This cleanser is so gentle yet effective. I use this with my Clarisonic and they are the perfect duo. My face feels so clean and fresh once I finish!

5.    Body Shop Tea Tree Oil

Have a pimple? Well then, let me introduce you to my friend….Tea tree oil. This oil LITERALLY makes all pimple swelling disappear, it’s honestly mind-blowing. Whenever I have a pimple, I take a Q-tip and put some of this on it and place it over my pimple overnight. The next morning the swelling is gone. Seriously magical.

6.    Tatcha Camellia God Spun Lip Balm

This lip balm is so bougie but WOW, I can never go back. It is so moisturizing and hydrating on the lips leaving you with the most luscious lips ever. I usually put this on right before heading to bed and wake up with my lips feeling soooo soft. P.S. The gold flakes make this even more luxurious!

7.    Laneige Water Sleeping Mask + Lip Sleeping Mask

As you can probably already tell, most of my skincare products are used at night because that for me is when I can take my time and really pamper myself. Also all of these products take full effect while I am resting so that’s plus for me. The lineage sleeping mask is so hydrating and is perfect for right before bed. Your skin feels super smooth when you wake up and is ready to tackle on the day. Their lip makes is also amazing for hydration and smoothness.

8.    Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Exfoliator

Exfoliating is super important as it removes all the dead skin cells you have lying around. My favorite at the moment is this one because I feel like it truly does remove all dead skin cells in the most gentle way. Often times exfoliators can be harsh and too grainy, but this one is so soft yet effective. I try to exfoliate one or twice a week to properly remove all dead skin cells.

9.    Milk Makeup Complexion Stixs (Watermelon BRIGHTENING serum, Cooling Water and Matcha Toner)

This, to me, is so innovative and cool. One thing I don’t like with skin care products is that you often have to use your hands to properly spread it out all over your face. SO when I first saw these stixs, I was completely drawn to them and their mess-free abilities. The watermelon stick is a serum that smells amazing and leaves the skin ready for makeup. The cooling water toner is a gel like moisturizer that hydrates and helps depuff. Lastly, the toner stick helps to balance the sin and to detox. I often vary which stick I use according to how my skin is feeling that day but they work amazing!

These are my current favorite skincare products that I truly cannot live without.
