2017 Skincare Favorites

Hi Guys! 

If you haven’t read my makeup favorites of 2018 yet, Click HERE! And if you have, let’s just get on to my 2018 skincare favorites!

This was the year of skincare products. I bought and tested out SO MANY products. Some I loved, and other I could do without. Skincare is something that is so personal, so even if these product work for me, they might not work for you.

Tea Tree Oil is the only thing I trust to clear breakouts. I’ll apply some of this oil at night, and in the morning my breakouts are diminished by 50%. I also love using more natural products on my skin!

The Soap and Glory Face Soap and Clarity Facial Wash is the only face wash I used this year. I use this every night in the shower, and love how clean and smooth my skin feels after. Also, Soap and Glory is a pretty affordable brand and this face wash lasts FOREVER! I used it every day in 2017 and am just running low. Crazy.

The Tarte FRXXXION Stick is one of my two favorite exfoliators. I love how smooth it makes my skin feel, and I love the application. I am not disgusted by using stick products because I always use them on clean skin! The product lasted me so long and worked wonders for my skin. Also, it is only $22, so compared to the product I will be mentioning next, it is super affordable!

I raved about the Lancer Exfoliator in my Lancer Review. Since about September, this is all I have been using on my skin. I am obsessed with the way it makes my skin feel and look. The only downside is the price.. Lancer is a super pricey brand, but if you can afford this exfoliator, I would most definitely splurge.

The Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist is one of my favorite products of the year. I use this as a toner to hydrate my skin after I wash it. The product is so soft and hydrating, and is amazing for dry skin! I use this year round and have gone through SO MANY bottles of this in 2017! 

The Clinique Moisture Surge Moisturizer is another product I have raved about forever. This will always be my favorite moisturizer. I don’t really know what else to say but that it hydrates very dry skin and looks beautiful under makeup. 

Innisfree is a brand I discovered in October of 2017. The Pore Clearing Toner has really changed my skin. The toner helps with all of my texture and clogged pores. It is also not that expensive, so that’s another plus! I find that my skin has cleared up and looked less oily since I started using it.

The Innisfree Intensive Hydrating Serum is another Innisfree that I love. For $24, you get an incredible hydrating serum. I use this morning and night after toning my skin. I have always strayed away from serums because I don’t always splurge on skincare. So for only $24, I will never be without this product again.

The Philosophy Pore Clearing Mask is one of my two favorite masks of the year. If my skin is feeling dehydrated and clogged, this mask helps clear my pores and gently exfoliate. It also works wonders on blackheads, so if that is a concern for you, this is a great option! 

The Origins 10 Minute Rescue Mask is the other mask I love. When I have more active breakouts, I love using this because it helps dry out the area. Even though the direction say to leave on for 10 minutes, I leave it on for slightly longer to make sure I get the full effect. I have had the same tube of mask for so long, and I am wowed by the results every time I use it.

I have the driest, most chapped lips. The Laneige Sleeping Lip Mask is a life saver. You apply this at night (or in the morning), and in the morning your lips are so soft, smooth, and plump!

If you have not smelled the Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Crush Body Mist, what are you doing with your life. I absolutely love this scent. It mixes so well with my body chemistry. I haven’t tried their Bum Bum cream because I cannot get myself to spend so much of a moisturizer, but if you know what that smells like, this is the same thing. Another plus is that the spray lasts forever!

So those were all my skincare favorites for the year! I felt like my skin definitely changed over the past few months and these are the products that made it possible!

I hope you guys have an amazing weekend, and I’ll see you on Tuesday!
