My Top 10 Must Have Skincare Products
Pacifica Super Detox Deep Purification Wipes
I love using these when I am too lazy to wash my face at night. These wash it for me and remove any leftover makeup gunk or oil or whatever on my face and it’s such a convenient wipe. Also this is great if you’re traveling. I credit these wipes and in combo with the wipes below for not breaking out when I don’t follow my nighttime skin regimen. Also Pacifica products are 100% Vegan, Cruelty Free, and Gluten Free. All of that kind of intimidated me when I first read about Pacifica, but after using them for a few months I have to say these might be my favorite skin care product ever.
Pacifica Enzymatic Exfoliating Wipes
I might love these Pacifica wipes more than the first ones. I use these in after the Super Deep Detox cleansing wipes if I am somewhere I can’t or just not following my nighttime skin regimen. So I feel the need to say that yes these are exfoliating but they are not physically exfoliating. There aren’t any balls on these or anything it’s the formula on the wipes that does exfoliating. It is so gentle and my face isn’t dried out the next morning like it sometimes is with these type of products. Also credit this with not breaking me out when I don’t take care of my skin. I don’t have to worry when I use these products. I have so many Pacifica products and it is definitely one of my favorite brands I get all giddy everytime I use them.
Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion
So this is called skin perfecting lotion but it’s actually for acne prone/oily skin. I don’t typically break out but I do have acne prone skin if I don’t take care of it. This controls oil and somewhat mattifies my face. I use this lotion every morning it’s light enough to wear under makeup and keeps my skin looking great.
Pur-lisse 4 in 1 Blue Lotus Eye Adore Serum
This eye serum is so legit. Serums are more concentrated and potent than creams. They are also more easily absorbed in the skin. I have perpetual black eyes from genetics (thanks mom.) I also have somewhat wrinkly skin down there that creases any makeup ever. This serum helps not only to help prevent fine lines and wrinkles around my eyes, but helps prep my skin so my makeup looks better.
Laneige Water Sleeping Mask
I have other light gel textured sleeping mask, but none can hold a candle to this one. This one gives such a deep surge of moisture to the skin. It also absorbs rather quickly so I am not waiting for it to dry up a little to not mess up my pillows when I am going to bed. I was just in a tropical destination wedding and the entire wedding party got really sunburned before the actual ceremony. I let all of us use it the days leading up to the big day and it kept us from peeling, and gave it the moisture it needed to heal itself faster.
Mario Badescu Silver Powder
I have some pretty large and in charge pores on my nose. I take care of my skin but that’s just the way the cookie crumbles. The nose strips that feel like you’re waxing your pores clean work but never to the extent I want them to. This is where this mask comes into play. I am not going to lie this mask is a pain in the butt to apply. It is just difficult and messy and no matter what I do to try and make it easier, it’s just really inconvenient. The results this produces though are nothing short of magic. This has to be one of the most effective skin care products out there. You see clear shrunken pores immediately. Instant gratification is pretty awesome. I would use this more if it wasn’t so messy.
Derma E Overnight Peel
I guess this has some alpha hydroxy acids in it which is basically a chemically exfoliating ingredient. This is like a minor chemical peel that sheds all your gross or dead skin and reveals fresh radiant skin below. If you have any resistant pimples, large pores, fine lines, or just dull skin, this product is bomb. Recommended to do the night before you have a big event for the best base skin possible. Also it doesn’t leave you with actual dry peeling skin in the morning like others do.
Boscia Luminizing Black Mask
I count on this face mask to purify my pores. Like once a week I’ll apply this black peel off mask. I like the fact that it has activated charcoal as a main ingredient because it absorbs toxins. This means when you peel it off, just like you would peel glue off your hand as a kid, all the gunk that was just brought to the surface doesn’t stay there and cause you to break out the following days after using a mask. For that reason alone, I love this product.
Kate Somerville Eradikate Spot Treatment
Dry up your pimples overnight. Dip a q tip into the thick pink mixture that rest on the bottom of the jar and apply that to problem spots. You will look a little crazy to anyone who sees you before bed as you just have pink spots all over your face. This has like calamine and sulfur in it or something. I actually thought the smell (there was a pimple under my nose) was that awful burned hair smell and thought I had fried my hair. If you can put up with a sulfur smell this product is a little miracle worker.
Murad Hydrating Toner
Toners are great. They restore the pH balance of your skin and help your skin absorb products better. This toner from murad is great as it also hydrates my skin. I also spray this on my face after I already have makeup on if I notice my face is dry and I don’t want to disturb my makeup. BOOM MOISTURE SURGE.
