Skincare Essentials

Hey y’all!

Today, I want to talk about some skincare items that I cannot live without and a helpful resource for you! I want you to know that as I’m writing this, I’m listening to my Christmas playlist- yes I am THAT person. It just makes me so happy. But anyway, back to skincare.

Here are 4 products I use regularly:

  • Yes To Face Masks DSC_0006-2
    • I LOVE THESE. Right now, I only have two of their paper masks, Yes To Cucumbers Calming Paper Mask and Yes To Coconut Ultra Hydrating Paper Mask. I have also tried their mud masks, powder-to-clay masks, and their sleeping masks- which I absolutely love. I usually purchase mine at Ulta or Walmart. There’s nothing better than a glass of wine and a face mask, am I right? (I’ve talked about these and the next item on the blog before- see here!)
  • Freeman Beauty Cucumber Peel-Off MaskDSC_0004
    • Ugh, I love this face mask. This one is definitely my favorite from Freeman Beauty. It’s so cooling and does a great job of giving my face a pick-me-up. Whenever my skin feels “blah” (for lack of a better term), this is my go-to mask. I also got this cute little spatula with a gift set of face masks, which I now use all the time. If you don’t have one, I know ELF sells them. They’re a game changer. It just makes it so much easier to apply your mask, plus you aren’t touching your face with your dirty fingertips.
  • Alba Botanica Hawaiian 3-in-1 Clean Towelettes Deep Pore Purifying Pineapple EnzymeDSC_0005-2
    • These are a staple for me. Whenever I wear a lot of makeup, these are amazing to use. I’ll use one wipe before I cleanse my face. They really help to break up my makeup. Plus, there are 100% vegetarian ingredients and no animal testing!! Big win for me. (Yes To and Freeman Beauty are also cruelty-free! I try to be conscious if a company is cruelty-free before purchasing products.)
  • Alba Botanica Hawaiian Ultra Sheer Lotion Shine Control Coconut Water DSC_0007
    • Can you tell I like this brand? I was in Marshall’s one day (shocker) and I needed a new moisturizer, so I picked this one up and it’s quickly become one of my favorites. It makes my face so smooth and it’s a great base before I put on my makeup (I still use a primer). The only thing that could make this product better is an SPF.

The last thing I wanted to mention is something I was reached out to about. I had someone from ask me if I would share their site with y’all. At first I was a little skeptical but the more I dived into their website, the more I fell in love with it. Here are some posts that I liked:

I love how these guides provide you with many options that will suit your needs. Naturally, if a product is working for you, then a guide like this may not help you. Only you know your skin- so do what’s best for it! But if you’re in the market for a new moisturizer or eye cream, these guides are super helpful!

One last thing on skincare, the more I sleep, the better my skin looks. When I consciously drink water and drink enough of it, my face looks amazing. Avocados and exercise also help clear up my skin and make me glow. Just a few tips that help me! 🙂

Thanks for reading!
