Dullness is something I’ve struggled with for a long time now, so I was excited to start incorporating Midnight Serum into my daily regimen. This luxurious formula combines bitter orange, hyaluronic acid and vitamin E to help brighten the skin. Plus, it helps hydrate and smooth wrinkles. At just $35, this multi-tasking serum is a must-have.

If I had to pick my favorite skincare ingredient, it would be glycolic acid. A chemical exfoliant, glycolic acid gently gets rid of dead skin cells to reveal brighter, smoother skin — something I’ve been after for a long time. This formula contains 10% pure glycolic acid, which has seriously helped lighten my acne scars and give me a more even-looking complexion. Compared to other powerful options on the market, this price can’t be beat.

Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water with Vitamin C
I’ve been a fan of the Garnier micellar waters for a long time. They’re perfect for a quick morning refresh, to take off makeup with at night or for whenever I want a gentle cleanse. I love how affordable they are too (under $10), not to mention that the bottle lasts forever. The latest in the range takes things up yet another level. In addition to all of the benefits I already mentioned, this formula is infused with vitamin C to help brighten skin. I’m all about a glow, so you know I’ll be stocking up on this cleanser every time I go to Walmart.

As much as I want to branch out and try every new skincare release I can get my hands on, my sensitive skin usually stops me in my tracks. This cleanser has been my go-to since long before I started wearing makeup. It’s gentle enough to wash away my mascara without stinging my eyes and it breaks up my foundation without stripping my skin. The classic hydrating formula feels silky, athers up well and doesn’t suck any more moisture out from my dry complexion.

Garnier Green Labs Pinea-C Brightening Serum Cream with SPF 30 and Vitamin C + Pineapple
As the weather starts to warm up, I like to simplify my skincare routine as much as possible and with just this product, I’m able to knock out three steps in one. This new gem is a serum, a moisturizer and a sunscreen. The lightweight formula contains pineapple extract and vitamin C, which work together to diminish dark spots and brighten and even out the skin tone. I love that it also protects my skin with a built-in, broad-spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen.
