2018 Skincare Favorites

Happy belated New Year's guys! 2018 was definitely a rough one, but I'm so glad that my skincare game was on point and I can't wait to share with you the skincare items that have fought their way into my heart this past year. These are items that I literally couldn't stop using and absolutely love. I feel like a good skincare routine is such an essential part of a healthy lifestyle and I'm always trying new things and trying to perfect it, and 2018 I think I really did!

My skin tends to be dry the majority of the time, except for when I'm in closed places like an airplane then ya girl is a grease monster! I don't tend to get many breakouts but I do have some redness on my nose and cheeks ( I'm self conscious of this area of my face and I'm always open to things that reduce redness that are natural and don't require lasers!).

VIIcode Oxygen Eye Cream 3.0 (linked here)*

This hydrating eye cream offers a smooth consistency that gives a good dose of moisture to the under eye area. This product is perfect for the sensitive under eye skin that may seem dull at times and a great way to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Even though I don't yet have crow's feet, its never too early to start preventative skincare tactics to keep your skin looking as youthful as possible for the longest time possible. What I really enjoy about the T2 eye cream is there is no over whelming smell and the product glides on easily. After applying the activating crescent strip, I usually just pat a small amount on my under eye area and in an upward, light patting motion bring the product to my temple. I'll even use my jade roller to work the product into my skin.

The ingredients are hand picked and include elderberries, which supply antioxidants to make skin glow, jojoba oil that keeps skin hydrated, and evening primrose to increase circulation. This eye cream really helped to overall increase the hydration of my under-eye area.

Tatcha Water Cream
If you have been reading my blog for a while, you'll know this is my ride or die moisturizer. I have been using this for a year now and I love how quickly it sinks into the skin, the soft texture and how moisturized my skin is without being oily. I use this everyday morning and night and my skin has never looked better than this past year. The product's packaging is just as gorgeous as the moisturizer inside the pot.

Clinique 2-in-1
I love using this after going to the gym or a good workout. It offers a light physical exfoliation and I kind of like the smell...I've used this forever and I still haven't decided. There is just something so satisfying about using this in the shower after a sweaty workout.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir
I love the smell of this and how hydrated and fresh it makes my skin feel. Probably not the most economically sound purchase but this is a princess product. You don't need this (well maybe I do because I'm seriously addicted) but you want it. It works as a step in my skincare routine and to set or refresh makeup to give a dewy look. I have purchased 3 full sizes of these so far and will continue to purchase this until the end of time!

Caudalie Instant Foaming Cleanser
This foam cleanser is so gentle and I love the smell, it feels like I'm giving myself a spa treatment. The cleanser sinks into the skin sos softly and is great for all skin types. I have bought this twice now and my second bottle is almost gone, you can bet I'll be restocking once it is!

Herbivore Jade Roller
I keep my jade roller in the refrigerator and use it on my entire face. Jade rolling functions in renewing blood flow in the face and facilitating lymphatic drainage. To be completely honest the only real results I have seen from using this is a reduction in puffiness. I just like how it feels on my skin in the morning. It really helps me wake up because it is so cold from being kept in the fridge.

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask
Whenever I use this product the next day I get so many compliments on my skin its ridiculous. My mom, an aesthetician, even complimented my skin the day after using it! This mask is not only in an intagrammable bottle but it also leaves the skin looking so amazingly hydrated and dewy its ridiculous.

Laneige Overnight Lip Mask
All I can say is that not only am I obsessed with this product I actually had my husband using it for a while too. This is a great hydrating lip product that really helps with cracked lips in the winter and it is an absolute staple in my beauty routine. This has changed the texture of my lips and I have to use it every night because it just makes my lips feel so hydrated.
