My new favorite hand cream, hands down. Formulated with broad-spectrum CBD, tremella mushroom snow mushroom and maritime pine bark, this fast-absorbing product leaves my skin feeling unbelievably soft and moisturized in seconds. It’s designed to be used in tandem with the brand’s Tsubo-Oshi Massage Tool, so you can give yourself a calming at-home reflexology session.
This micellar water isn’t new, but I did just buy a new bottle of it and was immediately reminded again how much I love it. I have super sensitive skin, so I have to be careful about what ingredients are in all of my skincare products — makeup removers included. This formula is so gentle and non-drying yet powerful enough to remove stubborn waterproof mascara. It’s the perfect first step in my double-cleansing process.

Combination skin types – listen up! This gel-cream moisturizer is game changing when you need a soothing moisturizer after you complete your skincare routine. It’s packed with omega 3 oil, omega 6 oil and fatty acids to visibly refresh the skin. After application, my skin is bouncy, plump and feels like velvet.
I’m always game to test a new retinol in my skincare routine, so I was stoked to give this one a go. It has 1% retinol with peptide and tranexamic acid to help clarify, brighten and even out skin tone and texture. I love that it’s extremely lightweight and doesn’t leave behind a residue like other OTC retinols I’ve used in the past. My skin looks glowy, illuminated and fresh after use.
This serum is the definition of a “treat yourself” product — but it’s well worth it. Inside the luxe gold bottle, you’ll find a serum (also gold) that helps speed up skin cell renewal to reveal perfectly smooth, plump and radiant skin. Grand rose extracts, vitamin E and a gentle acid exfoliating complex hydrate the skin and even out its tone. Over time, it also gives skin a serious glow.
This may come as a surprise, but even though I’ve written about retinol more times than I can count, the ingredient has always intimidated me. I have dry, sensitive skin, and my main skincare focus is using gentle products that hydrate. But when I decided to give this plant-based formula a try, I was pleasantly surprised. It makes my skin feel smoother and isn’t irritating whatsoever, which is huge given how reactive my skin is. It exfoliates to help whisk away dullness and soften fine lines, and is gentle enough for everyday use, even for retinol newbies like me.

This clay face mask might not be brand new to the market, but I had yet to try it until recently — and boy do I wish I hadn’t waited so long. It’s formulated with niacinamide, kombucha and salicylic acid to brighten the complexion, clear pores and gently exfoliate. It doesn’t create an uncomfortable tight feeling on the skin as it dries down, and I love that it absorbs excess oil from my greasy complexion, making it a great mask pick for the upcoming season.
I’ve been on the hunt for a soothing toner to calm redness in my skin, and this one does that and so much more. It works to maintain a healthy skin barrier thanks to its anti-bacterial and hydrating ingredients, and I love that it leaves my skin feeling calm and nourished without a stick or oily texture. Since using it daily for the last three weeks, I’ve noticed a major improvement in the evenness of my skin tone.

Ever since I realized the importance of wearing sunscreen everyday, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect one that didn’t leave a whitecast, but gave me ample protection. It’s been a couple of weeks since I first tried the Anthelios UV Correct Daily Anti-Aging Face Sunscreen SPF 70, and I haven’t put it down. This is a chemical sunscreen that contains anti-aging ingredients like vitamin E and niacinamide. It leaves my skin with a luminous finish without the white cast. As we get closer to the summer months, I know this is going to be a staple in my routine.
As someone who’s constantly fighting hyperpigmentation, I’m always on the hunt for products designed to target dark spots. In my most recent beauty haul, I picked up this serum and am loving the results so far. This is a gel serum that is said to target dark marks, scars and spots with ingredients like kojic acid and azelaic acid. Though it’s only been a couple of weeks since I’ve incorporated it into my routine, I’m really excited to see how it can improve the look of my skin!
