My Ultimate WISHFUL Skin Routine
Hi my loves! I cannot believe it has been nearly one year since we launched WISHFUL and we almost have a full skincare routine! I am so incredibly proud of these products, each one has made such a huge difference to my skin or routine, whether it’s fighting dull skin with Yo Glow or evening my skin tone with Get Even Rose Oil.
We wanted to make it extra easy for you guys to know when and where you can use WISHFUL products in your routine. Layering your skincare in the right order is so important for ensuring your products are able to do all the hard work without any barriers. The second most important rule is that you’re consistent with your routine – no skipping and leaving makeup on overnight – and that you’re patient. Miracles don’t happen overnight, but by being gentle with your skin and using efficacious products that work, you will see your skin transform over time.
So, here’s when you should use our WISHFUL skincare products in your routine. Of course, you do not have to use all WISHFUL skincare products, you can slot them into your current routine easily using this guide.
My WISHFUL Skin Routine:
1. Double Cleanse with Clean Genie
Cleansing is so important, so I always start my evening skincare routine by removing my makeup with our Clean Genie Cleansing Butter to remove all traces of makeup, oil and dirt. I then follow with a water-based cleanser for my final step to really clean out those pores.
For mornings, I just like to use a soothing water-based cleanser to refresh my skin and remove the residue from my evening skincare routine.
2. Exfoliate with Yo Glow Enzyme Scrub
Truth be told, I Yo Glow most days! The combo of AHAs, BHAs, enzymes and gentle cellulose leaves your skin feeling baby soft, which just creates the most flawless canvas for makeup application. As well as the immediate feeling of super smooth skin, it also helps to brighten your skin and improve skin tone over time.
Tip: If you have sensitive skin, start using it one to two times a week.
I love to use a hydrating toner or something gently exfoliating, like the Pixi Glow Tonic, $18, to prep my skin for the next steps. Finally, I add a surge of vitamins and antioxidants with an essence, like the Shani Darden Sake Toning Essence, $52.
4. Mask with Thirst Trap Cocoon Mask or Chin Lift Sculpting Sheet Mask
On the days when my skin feels dry or parched, I always reach for a Thirst Trap Cocoon Mask to instantly revive and quench my skin with a hit of hydration. On the days that I have a shoot or want to get super glam, I often follow Thirst Trap with Chin Lift Sculpting Sheet Mask to snatch my jawline and make everything feel firmer and tighter.
5. Serum with Thirst Trap Juice HA3& Peptide Serum
My newest baby to join the WISHFUL collection and a product I cannot go without is our Thirst Trap Juice HA3 & Peptide Serum. It’s packed with three types of hyaluronic acid to deeply hydrate, peptides to tighten and tone, and niacinamide to brighten the skin.
6. Eye Cream
So, I often apply my eye creams as the very last step because I only apply to my upper lids, however, I know most people use eye cream to target below the eye, in which case it’s best to do this after your serum and before your moisturizer. Because most moisturizers or face oils typically have occlusive ingredients (it creates a barrier on your skin to lock in moisture) if you apply an eye cream after moisturizer then the ingredients aren’t able to penetrate the barrier of the thicker cream.
7. Facial Oil
Okay, this is possibly the most transformative skincare product I’ve ever used! Our Get Even Rose Oil is packed with 15 incredible oils that brighten and even skin tone, smoothing out texture while helping to tackle pigmentation and post-pimple marks.
If you’re using a traditional moisturizer – a gel or a cream – then I recommend applying Get Even Rose Oil after, that way it will lock in all the moisture and create the perfect final step. I like to use Get Even before our Honey Balm Jelly Moisturizer as the texture of Honey Balm is so rich and creamy, that it works perfectly at the end of this routine.

Our Honey Balm Jelly Moisturizer is the most soothing, nourishing and hydrating balm ever! The texture feels so luxurious and it leaves your skin glowing and SO luminous! I use this as the final step at nighttime to keep every last bit of moisture locked in!
New WISHFUL Goodies!
I’m also super excited because we have just launched some new goodies as part of the collection! You can now get our Thirst Trap Juice HA3 & Peptide Serum and Get Even Rose Oil in adorable 10ml versions (full size is 30ml), which is great if you want to try it first or need minis for travel (one day!) or if you’re on the go.
And, because you guys love it so much and you kept asking us for a bigger version, we’ve also created our Yo Glow Enzyme Scrub in a 200ml size as well as the original 100ml and mini 40ml versions. So basically, you can keep this for longer and use it as much as you like without having to worry about it running out!
