Here is a list of my 10 Must Have Natural Skincare and beauty products that ACTUALLY WORKS!
Formulated with watermelon seed oil and hibiscus, the All-Embracing Serum (Watermelon + Hibiscus) oil quickly became my obsession. The smell is incredible. It absorbs quickly and never feels greasy. It doesn’t cause blocked pores or breakouts.
If you have very acne prone areas, avoid that area when applying the serum. I use this 1-2 times a day. When people come over I do a mini-facial on them with this serum because I love it that much!
I use REN Skincare Bio Retinoid Anti-Wrinkle Concentrate Oil in the evenings right after I wash my face. It’s another light face oil with retinoil, the single most important ingredient everyone over 30 should be using in the evening.
Retinoil can have harsh side effects, but this oil is light and aborbs quickly. I follow it up with another serum after a minute and then a cream. And it works, quickly!
The Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm is unlike any skincare cleanser I have ever used. It comes in a container you dip you hand or hand towel into, and a little goes a long way. The consistency is thick, almost an intense cream with the texture of maybe Aquafor.
When you spread it on your face, it feels like your skin is getting a hug. It is soothing and moiturizing, strips makeup and anything on your skin without harsh rubbing or having to use tons of product or waste things like cotton balls. And the smell of roses will linger on your palate for at least 20 minutes!
Brace yourself, because your life is going to change when you start using Olay’s Mist Ultimate Hydration Essence Energizing With Vitamin C and Bergamot. It’s the first face mist that sold me on why I needed a face mist in my life (and trust me, you do too!). It’s great when you get out of a shower or bath. It’s great to add light moisture and cooling throghout the day. It’s great to set your lotion before you apply makeup. It’s a great makeup setting spray.
And it’s great at refreshing your face anytime during the day. I keep one in my purse and one in my car. I take one on EVERY FLIGHT (because recirculated airplane air makes me so dry). That will never happen to you again! And Olay’s Face Mist isn’t even $10!
Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment by Sunday Riley is the holy grail of lactic acids serums. It will transform even the most stubborn skill and make it glow!
Made with purified Lactic Acid that exfoliates the surface layers of the skin, revealing a more fresh, bright, glowing, clarified, smoother and younger-looking complexion. It also has Licorice and Lemongrass to brighten the appearance of dark spots and discolorations. And finally Prickly Pear Extract helps to sooth the appearance of surface redness, while supporting a calmer, more even-toned complexion.
You will be getting compliments about your skin a few days after you start using this!
Pro-Collagen Marine Cream by Elemis hydrates your skin without feeling heavy of greasy. And it WORKS! It has been clinically proven to reduce the depth of wrinkles and improve skin firmness, tone and add hydration after 15 days of use. That’s AMAZING!
It contains a unique Mediterranean algae that increases the quantity of glycosaminoglycans (or GAGs) within the skin. By special cell communication, these water-attracting GAGs moisturize skin and improve suppleness, firmness and elasticity. It also contains ginkgo biloba (which provides superior free-radical protection) blended with precious rose and mimosa absolutes to create the ultimate anti-aging product.
So Polished Exfoliating Sugar Scrub is packed with ingredients like sugar, a natural exfoliant that dissolves in water to help leave skin smoother and brighter. It’s a super potent yet not abrasize exfoliating scrub to get rid of dead skin cells. I use this once a week.
This mask (REALLY A PEEL) was my first mask obsession (beyond my normal mask affinity, I mean mask LOVE!). It made top 10 list of my favorite beauty products to try.
The Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask by REN Skincare WORKS! You will feel it warming your face (but it never burn) may leave your face a bit red afterwards. So only do it at night.
I often use it the night before shoots to exfoliate my skin and make my skin glow. It exfoliates deeply, which is why I consider it a peel.
It uses a cocktail of four AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids)—including glycolic acid from pineapple, lactic acid from passion fruit, citric acid from lemon, and tartaric acid from grape—create multi-action exfoliation by gently dissolving dead skin cells and supporting natural collagen production. It lifts dead skin and resurfaces to dramatically improve skin tone, texture, firmness, and radiance, while minimizing the appearance of pores and reducing sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and old acne scars.
I can’t recommend this mask enough and it lasts a LONG time!
Run don’t walk to pick up Pixi’s DetoxifEYE Facial Treatment. It’s incredible! The hydrogel patches fit each face’s unique contours and stay on. They de-puffs instantly (which is why I always travel with them and yes, often use them while flying!). They are gentle enough for your sensitive eye area and are very affordable.
I’ve told you about Olay Regenerist Retinol 24 Night Facial Serum before. I tested this new product line for Olay, and while I loved all of the products, i absolutely fell in love with the Night Facial Serum. I took it on a trip with me to Turks & Caicos and made my mom use it nightly and every friends who entered my room had it applied as well. What can I say? When I love a beauty product I want to share it with everyone!
