Face Cleansers, Makeup Removers and Toners

Fresh Soy Makeup Removing Wash – This is a great cleanser if you have sensitive skin. Skin feels soft and supple after using.

Farmacy Beauty Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm – It’s the best solid makeup remover I’ve tried.

Laneige Cream Skin Milk Oil Cleanser – Laneige has become one of my holy grail skincare brands.

Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Cleanser – I find this to be a really great, plant-based gentle cleanser. A little goes a long way.

Origins Cleansing Makeup Removing Jelly with Willowherb – The negative reviews on Sephora really surprise me because I love this cleanser. Just know that you’ll have to double cleanse because you won’t feel entirely clean if you rely on it for just removing makeup. For some that may be a deal breaker.

Indie Lee CoQ-10 Toner (REVIEW HERE) – An alcohol-free toner that leaves skin feeling hydrated and refreshed. I use this every day.

Moisturizers, Mists and Eye Creams

Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet – The best gel-cream lightweight moisturizer.  I use this moisturizer during the spring, summer and fall seasons.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir – A very refreshing toning mist that works best after cleansing or for a midday pick-me-up.Comes in two sizes.

Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Face Oil – Amazing for dry skin types, but expensive. I have the mini size.

Indie Lee Squalane Facial Oil – Another vegan facial oil that doesn’t cause me to break out.

Clinique All About Eyes Serum De-Puffing Eye Massage – Brightens, refreshes and massages away under eye puffs. I keep this in my fridge for an extra cooling effect.

Fresh Black Tea Firming Eye Cream – Long lasting, light, and great for sensitive skin.

Sunscreen and Lip Care

Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40 (REVIEW HERE) – The best invisible, weightless sunscreen that also doubles as a makeup-gripping primer. This is the only sunscreen I use these days.

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask – The BEST overnight lip balm. Holy grail. Totally worth the hype.

Laneige Lip Glowy Balm – It’s equal parts glossy and moisturizing, which is perfect for daytime wear. I have two shades, Pear and Berry.

Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Treatment Lip Balm – I personally prefer this lip formula compared to the original, it’s more hydrating. Comes in two shades, translucent and Dream, a sheer pink.

Masks and Treatments

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask – One of the best (and affordable) overnight gel moisture masks.

OLEHENRIKSEN Cold Plunge Pore Mask (REVIEW HERE) – The best purifying and pore minimizing mask. Love the cooling sensation. Great for oily skin types.

Laneige Hypoallergenic Cica Sleeping Mask (REVIEW HERE) – The best, most soothing mask I’ve ever tried. It helps me so much with my redness and dryness concerns. Works great on extremely sensitive skin too.

Laneige Glowy Makeup Serum – I debated if this belonged in my makeup recommendations or skincare and I chose skincare because it’s a great lightweight, hydrating serum.

Caudalie Overnight Detox Oil – My go-to treatment when I’m dealing with stressed out, acne prone skin. I wake up to smooth skin and a noticeable glow every time.

Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel – Expensive, but worth it if you struggle with acne, dark spots and uneven texture.

Scrubs and Exfoliators

Caudalie Gentle Buffing Cream – Excellent exfoliator for sensitive skin that won’t cause irritation or redness.

Fresh Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash – Tried a sample earlier this year. The blend of fruit extracts, sugar crystals and grapeseed oil work together nicely to remove excess oil and dead skin.

Body Products

Fresh Sugar Lemon Bath & Shower Gel – A sweet, gentle foaming body cleanser. I prefer to use this for my bubble baths.

L’Occitane Shower Oil with Almond Oil – Tried a sample of this last year and it felt so luxurious.

Herbivore Coco Rose Exfoliating Body Scrub – Expensive, but it’s all natural and smells AMAZING.

Sephora Sugar Body Scrub – An affordable but effective option if you don’t want to splurge on an expensive body scrub.

REN AHA Smart Renewal Body Serum – Has a citrus scent and does a great job smoothing my skin when I use this.

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream – One of the best smelling lotions I’ve ever tried, like a tropical vacation.
