There are a few things I take very seriously in life: my coffee order, the people I love, and my skincare routine. I’ve actually been addicted to skincare since my early twenties, which is probably a lot earlier than most young women start, and it also means I’ve tried ENDLESS products throughout the last decade. I’ve also made the switch to 99% clean skincare so my go-to list has definitely transformed over the years. If I had to pick my favorite skincare products of the last decade, these six would win:
Goop Instant Facial – The name doesn’t lie and it’s worth the price tag. I use this 1x a week whenever I need a little boost or if I need to look 100 the next day. It literally makes your skin feel like you just had a facial (again, the name doesn’t lie) and is one of the best exfoliators I’ve used.
True Botanicals Vitamin C Booster – This is one of my favorite skincare lines to date, including their booster here. It’s a powder that you can mix into your routine and is amazing for balancing & brightening skin. Because it’s a powder form and isn’t mixed until you add in water (or moisturizer), the potency lasts longer than most on the market.
Honest Beauty Face Wash – I only wash my face at night and this affordable product ($13) is all you need in a face wash. Non-toxic, gentle on your skin, and it never leaves my eyes burning or anything aggressive.
Tata Harper Retinoic Nutrient Face Oil – I’m a firm believer in retinol for anti-aging/fine lines and this is my pick. I have sensitive skin and using this 1-2x a week has been easy on it. Love all the vitamins and nutrient-rich ingredients.
Herbivore Emerald CBD Glow Oil – This is newest to my routine and already a staple. Mixed with adaptogens and CBD-rich oil, it is incredibly soothing on my skin – especially since I tend to be red/sensitive. It also protects against environmental stressors like pollution, etc., which is a major plus these days. This is last on my face during my nighttime routine.
While I’ve tried several that I really really like, I’m still looking for the PERFECT, sensitive eye cream. Any suggestions?!
