Skincare Switch-up

For the longest time I would use any face wash that had appealing marketing at CVS. My go to was the Clean & Clear, you know the one with the micro-beads and claimed to give your face a “morning burst”. Well, most of my adult life CVS skin care sufficed, that is, until I turned 25 and my skin turned to SHIT! I’ll save that for another post. Since then, I have been much more mindful about the products I use. After many trips to the esthetician, we were able to reduce the boulders on my face through laser and facials. As you can imagine, it was not cheap, so over the past two years, I decided to switch it up to see if it would help. I tested several products and finally found the products that work for my skin (right now). Sharing my new favorite skincare essentials that have become part of my daily routine and have done wonders for my skin. Added bonus — they are rather affordable and most are clean!


Ultra Hydrating Green Juice Cleanser

Acure has quickly become one of my new favorite and affordable brands. My skin was screaming for hydration last winter, so I decided to give this face wash a try and was shocked at the results. For a $12.00 cleanser you can’t go wrong. I used for a week and all of a sudden the little bumps on my face disappeared. Must try!

Microdermabrasion Facial

This $30 scrub is a mini facial in a 2oz jar. My sister turned me on to this last Christmas and I have been a fan ever since. I use two times a week and my skin feels soft as a babies bottom.

Squalane + Zinc SPF

Before a friend turned me on to Biossance, every suncreen felt slimy and smelly. It was my most dreaded step in my skincare routine. After using Biossance for the past year, I am pretty sure it’s officially the only sunscreen I will ever wear again. The hydrating sunscreen is packed with squalane for extra moisturization, and zinc oxide which keeps the skin’s outer barrier safe from damaging UVA and UVB rays.

Ultra Hydrating 12 Hour Moisturizer

After (quickly) becoming a super fan of Acure I purchased the moisturizer. During winter my skin is extra thirsty and needs all the TLC, this moisturizer did the trick. Can’t argue the price point either!

Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum

The extra boost of hydration my skin needs to get through November to April in New York City. Visibly notice and feel a difference within a week of using.

Clean Skin Towels

Instagram targeting got me on this one, but I’m not mad about it. Worth every penny. Not sure I will ever use a towel to dry my face again. Ultra soft, and 100% biodegradable face towel without the bacteria. I do believe that this has also helped reduce my breakouts.
