I am so excited to bring you my first annual beauty favourites. I've split everything into three blog posts. On Monday, we talked about my favourite hair, body, and nails products. Today I'm chatting about skincare. And on Friday we'll talk about makeup.
I'm also going to include other blog posts where I've mentioned these products, in case you want to read more. They'll be listed under each product review. There's a lot to cover, so let's get started!
1000 Roses Rosewater Face Mask // Andalou Naturals
I adore this mask for soothing my skin. It's got a very thick, luxurious texture that instantly calms any irritation or redness. It also smells divine.
Activate Face Mask // Herbivore Botanicals
This is the best mask for getting the crap out of your face. It's true. Herbivore Botanicals combines different types of clay to really extract all of the impurities in your face. Once the crap is out, your skin can begin to heal and recover, leaving you with gorgeously clear skin.
Facial Cleansing Creme // Acure Organics
I love using this! The creamy consistency and the natural, earthy scent reminds me of getting a facial. The natural ingredients work to gently remove impurities, while actually hydrating your skin.
Blossom + Leaf Toning Refresher // Andalou Naturals
This toner is perfect for drier skin types. Andalou uses nourishing ingredients to refresh and revive your skin without irritation. It's perfect all year!
Ultra Hyaluronic Hydrating Serum // MyChelle
This is my favourite serum because of how amazing it is to use and how awesome the results are. It's got a very smooth, silky texture and it smells so relaxing.
But the results are the best part. This has hyaluronic acid, a unique ingredient that helps your skin retain water. My skin is soft, hydrated, and soothed. Because of the water retaining action, this also helps minimize wrinkles and makes your skin look more supple and smooth. I highly recommend this to all skin types.
Certified Organic Argan Oil // Acure Organics
Argan oil is one of my favourite facial oils. This one is fabulous, it's certified organic and made by one of my favourite green beauty companies. This helps with hydration, acne scars, wrinkles, you name it! You can use it as a facial oil, in scrubs, in masks, however you want to!
Tamanu Oil // Alpha
Tamanu oil is great for hydration, but I love it for it's intense healing properties. I use this in the oil cleansing method, but this year I started using it as a facial oil for everyday healing.
This is amazing at reducing wrinkles, acne scars, and acne itself! It helps my skin look really clear and glowing so of course it made it onto this favourites list.
Argan Oil Facial Moisturizer SPF 30 // 100% Pure
Everyone needs a good dose of sun protection every day. This one is my favourite because it's really hydrating, so I don't need a separate day cream. I've been using this for almost two years now and I have no plans of stopping.
Intensive Healing Moisture Balm // 100% Pure
I think I'm going to put this in writing. This is my favourite skincare product. Ever. Across the board. It's a very luxurious, thick, intense moisture balm. It's perfect for calming and hydrating your skin, even during the depths of Winter.
It also smells like lavender so it's very relaxing. My skin couldn't survive Winter without this.
