My Core Skin Care Products

I know what you’re thinking.. and yes I took my skincare products outside for a photoshoot.

These are the basic skincare items I use every single day – very mild, simple products. I stick with these because they work really well for sensitive skin and keep my skin clear. I’ll do another post about the additional products I use (serums, exfoliators, masks, etc) another time. My skincare routine is a comforting ritual that I do twice a day. It’s nice to feel like you’re taking care of your skin and protecting it from the sun and environment.

Oil CleanserMalin + Goetz Facial Cleansing Oil $42 Pre-quarantine, I wore makeup every day, so I always double cleansed at the end of the day, starting with an oil cleanser. This one smells seriously amazing.. possibly a little like eucalyptus? And it gets all of my face & eye makeup off. Malin + Goetz makes their products geared towards sensitive skin types, so I love and trust this brand. I also love their packaging!

Foaming CleanserKiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser $21 After getting all my makeup off with my oil cleanser, I follow up with this gentle foaming cleanser. This gets my skin super clean because it foams up when I lather it. It doesn’t make my skin feel super tight/dry afterwards and it’s affordable! Also I find that Kiehl’s often has 20% off promotions going on.

TonerFirst Aid Beauty Wild Oat Hydrating Toner $22 First Aid Beauty is so so good! Their products are like healing/medicinal for my skin. This toner gives a nice soothing hydrating finish to my skin. What really is a toner? I’m honestly not entirely sure. All I know is this makes my skin feel really good 🙂

MoisturizerKiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream $32 I like this moisturizer because it feels super soft and lightweight on my skin and is also moisturizing. It doesn’t cost a fortune so I’m not afraid put it all over my neck as well.

Face SPFClarins Sunscreen For Face Wrinkle Control Cream (SPF 50) $35 Honestly, I don’t love this because it’s a little greasy, but it doesn’t break me out and it does its job. I’m using it up and then going to try something else. I’ve decided to always wear sunscreen on my face every day because I’m already seeing signs of aging… I thought I was safe in my 20’s but I guess not (sob).

Eye SPFOrigins Age Defense Eye Cream (SPF 20) $41 One of my favorite youtubers Emily Valentine Parr said that the only way to prevent wrinkles around the eyes is retinol and SPF. That really stuck with me and now I wear eye cream with SPF every day. This one is really good and goes on super easy. Also works perfect under makeup. I never leave the house without this on! Only downside is that it is a little pricey.

Thanks for reading and hope you enjoyed ❤
