I can’t believe there are less than 2 months left of 2017. While this has been an incredibly busy year for me in both my personal and professional lives, it has been a fun one and I am excited to see what 2018 brings. With the end of the year in sight, I wanted to share my favorite skincare products of 2017. As you know, I have spent the year really working on my skincare routine and I have found a few products that really work for me and I wanted to share those with you.
Derma E Nourishing Rose Cleansing Oil I only received this oil a few months ago, but I have been using it daily since. This oil is amazing at getting every last bit of makeup off, including waterproof mascara that usually takes some elbow grease to remove. In general, since using this product my oily skin has been controlled since the cleansing oil can actually break up the sebum. However, it’s gentle enough to still leave my skin soft and moisturized.
Saturday Skin Freeze Frame Beauty Essence I have been using this serum every night and morning after washing my face and I have been so pleased with the results. It is a really nice, thick serum that takes a bit of time to sink into the skin. However, the results are amazing and well worth it. It plumps skin and imparts a glow (that is in no way greasy) that is just gorgeous. I have also noticed that my skin has gotten softer over the few months that I’ve been using the serum.
Tata Harper Purifying Mask I first used this mask at the end of 2016, and it has remained one of my favorites throughout 2017. Whenever my skin is congested I uses this mask. The mask is almost mousse like, with a nice cooling effect on the skin that tells me it’s working! After using it for 30 minutes, my skin is clearer and feels less oily. It is pretty pricey, but with regular use it did help clear my skin and prevent future breakouts.
Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser There was a lot of hype around this cleanser, and I wasn’t sure it would live up to it. But, I have been using the cleanser every day and I love it. It smells amazing, and it is gentle, yet it does a great job at removing makeup and dirt from my face. My face feels clean, soft and refreshed after use, but doesn’t feel dry which often happens with other cleaners. (As a side note, the Glossier Moisturizing Moon Mask would definitely be on this list if I expanded it to 10 favorites instead of 5).
Bioderma Micellar Water I originally got the Micellar Water a few years ago in a beauty swap with a lovely lady in the UK because it wasn’t readily available in the US yet. Well great news is now you can get it on Amazon! Anyway, I love having this micellar water on hand for those nights when I am just too tired to go through my multi-step skincare routine. This does a great job at removing everything and doesn’t dry out my skin.
There you have it, my favorite skincare products of 2017. What skincare products have you been loving this year? Would love to know what products I should test to be in the running for favorite products of 2018!
