Hi my loves! I’ve discovered some seriously life-changing products over the last few years, so I wanted to give you the run down on my absolute FAVs! I get to try so many awesome beauty goodies (I’ve tried some pretty terrible ones too), and I consider myself so lucky that I can help you find amazing beauty products too. It’s SO hard to choose just ten, but honestly, I really can’t imagine my skin without these, all of them have made such an incredible difference! So here are my ten, can’t live without, life-changing products:
SkinCeuticals – C E Ferulic Serum
Recommended to me by a ton of beauty experts, the C E Ferulic serum is my latest obsession, and I literally can’t imagine my skin without it! It’s packed with antioxidants, and since I’ve been using it my skin tone has become so even, and it’s improved my pigmentation and acne scars too. I don’t even feel like I need to wear a high coverage foundation anymore.
The Chemistry Brand – Hand Chemistry Intense Youth Complex
This is hands down (no pun intended) the best hand cream I’ve ever used. As a bit of a germophobe, I wash my hands like crazy, so I need something super hydrating. This contains some really incredible ingredients that actually make your hands look younger: The darkness of my knuckles has faded (I know this is a super frustrating issue many women struggle with), and my hands just look fresh and new.
Tony Moly – Intense Care Snail Gold 24k Hydrogel Mask
If ever my skin needs hydration, this is the mask I turn to. It gives your skin a beautiful glow, and you don’t need to wear it for ages to get visible results. I use this literally every time I fly. Check out my full review.
REN – Rose O¹² Moisture Defence Oil
Containing one of the highest concentrations of rose in any skincare product in the world, this is extremely nourishing and penetrates really deep into your skin. As someone with super dry skin, this keeps it so soft and supple! It’s literally the first thing I reach for in the morning, and it creates the perfect canvas for makeup.
Mario Badescu – Facial Spray With Aloe, Herb, and Rosewater
I have this in every corner of my house, and I can’t go a day without it! It smells divine, and it’s actually perfect to apply after makeup as it sets it SO nicely! Although I’m prone to acne, I’ve found that the combination of rose, aloe, and herbs really keep my skin under control while still keeping it hydrated. It’s definitely a must product for acne-prone skin.
Lancer – The Method Polish
For an intense scrub, this is undoubtedly the best! It’s the grittiest face scrub I have, and it really gets rid of ALL dead skin. I always use it before a photo shoot to get perfectly smooth skin, which creates the best canvas for applying makeup. If you have dry to sensitive skin, you should only use it once a week, but for people with oily skin, this is the best thing you can try.
Institut Esthederm E.V.E. Serum
I swear by this – it really is life-changing! The company created an enzyme, which literally grows new skin, so it heals everything, and will really diminish the appearance of scars. It’ll make your skin look flawless, but I recommend using it at night as it’s not the best for makeup application.
This isn’t a new product, but this red-light therapy tool really is unparalleled as far as the results it gives your skin! It makes your skin glow, it boosts collagen like crazy, helps with wrinkles, pigmentation, scarring, and keeps your skin looking youthful. You can even use it to treat rosacea and psoriasis – it’s just the ultimate thing for skin! It’s expensive, but an investment worth making if you’re serious about skincare. See how I use mine to get rid of acne scars.
Guerlain – Orchid Imperial Face Serum
This is something I use before a big moment, like an event, photo shoot, interview, or a wedding, and it’s like a magic serum that makes you look healthy, glowy, dewy, and just stunning! The science and ingredients are really remarkable, and it’s the best thing to use before makeup application. It’s super expensive though, so it was something I didn’t buy immediately, but I finally found it in Dubai Duty-Free and took the plunge.
Caudalie Divine Oil
Ever since I tried this a few years ago, I’ve used it nearly every day, and I take a mini with me when I travel (I can even use it in my hair)! Not only does it smell delicious, but it’s SO nourishing, and the way it treats your skin is ahhhhmazing, because when I use oil, I don’t just want instant results, I want my skin to be soft for days after I’ve applied it, and this does that. Caudalie is second to none when it comes to ingredients, and this is a life-changer! I’ve been obsessed with it for years!
