CeraVe Hydrating Foaming Oil Cleanser

I’ve been a loyal CeraVe Cleanser user for a few years now and am always intrigued when the brand drops a new formula. Since I have dry skin, I usually stay away from foaming cleansers, but this new launch, made with ceramides and hyaluronic acid, is actually designed with dry skin in mind. The non-comedogenic, oil-based formula is made with surfactants and transforms from an oil to a gentle foam when massaged onto wet skin. According to the brand, it easily lifts dirt and excess oil up off the skin but also doesn’t leave it feeling stripped or leave behind a greasy film. 

Vacation After Sun Gel

After one of my recent beach trips, I discovered that I had unfortunately missed a spot of skin on my arms when applying sunscreen. The result was some tender sunburn that needed some TLC. I reached for this after-sun aloe vera gel by Vacation; it delivered a cooling, soothing sensation and was incredibly easy to apply without any tugging or pulling. The watery formula glided over the surface of my skin and left it feeling cared for and moisturized. It also didn’t leave behind that annoying sticky feeling that many after-sun gels do.

Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore-Minimizing & Polishing Powder Cleanser

Oily skin girlies will rejoice over this deep-cleaning powder cleanser; I certainly have been! This powder-to-cream cleanser foams up when mixed with water and is formulated with white clay and AHAs to help refine and soothe acne- and oily-prone skin. After using this, my skin looks and feels clearer, calmer and softer. It’s a must-try for shiny, combination skin types out there!

Peter Thomas Roth Even Smoother Glycolic Retinol Hydra-Gel Eye Patches

I’m always seeking new treatments for my under-eye area, so I was stoked to try these glycolic retinol eye gels for a more-even toned and textured look. They gently exfoliate to smooth out the area and help combat fine lines — not to mention, they’re a treat to apply every morning before makeup.

Vichy Minéral 89 Fragrance Free Cream

I may be obsessed with perfumes, but when it comes to my skincare routine, I prefer my products to be fragrance-free. This moisturizer has been my new go-to for its satiny soft texture, fast-absorbing consistency and ultra-hydrating feel. It’s packed with hyaluronic acid, Vichy volcanic water, niacinamide, vitamin E and squalane, which work together to help soothe my very dry, very sensitive skin.

Youth To The People Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream

During the summer, I gravitate towards lighter moisturizers, and the newly renovated Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream is one of my current favorites. I love the refreshing feel of the airy gel texture at the end of a hot day. Formulated with hyaluronic acid and vitamin-rich superfoods like kale, it plumps the skin, delivers up to 48 hours of hydration and helps strengthen moisture barrier function.

Vichy Capital Soleil Ultra-Light Sunscreen SPF 50

I’ve been testing out different everyday sunscreen formulas, and this one has definitely become a go-to. The main thing I look for in an SPF is something that won’t leave me with a white cast, and this does the job. It’s a non-comedogenic, lightweight formula that works for all skin types. If you’ve run out of sunscreen, run (don't walk!) to go grab this one!
