Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate Moisturizing Face Oil

Slathering your skin in oil can sometimes feel a bit messy, which doesn’t quite fit with the self-care vibe I’m going for in my skincare routine. What I love about this oil is that not only does my skin feel soft and hydrated after using it, but the application itself actually feels luxurious. The lavender oil-infused formula is lightweight and absorbs easily, making it perfect for capping off my (mess-free) nighttime skincare routine.  

Aēsop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Wash

My friend recently gifted me this soap as an apartment-warming present, and I’m loving it. I haven’t always given my hand-washing routine much thought beyond the basics, but adding a fancy soap to the mix elevates an otherwise boring (but essential) task. The soap’s woody, citrusy scent is like a little mood booster every time I lather up.

Foaming cleansing oils are my go-to for taking off an intricate eye look, red lippie, or full face of makeup, so I’m excited to try this new offering from La Roche-Posay. The oil-to-foam formula gently removes dirt and debris while helping to protect the skin from the harsh drying effects of water.

Not to mention, the gentle formula acts as a body wash and face cleanser. Sounds like the perfect addition to any shower routine after a night out, no?


I’ve been obsessed with this sunscreen mist from itk since having the opportunity to test it out last spring. The lightweight formula protects against UV rays and blue light while also helping to prep the skin for makeup (perfect for both long hours working in front of the computer and night out). Plus, like everything else from the indie brand, the sunscreen mist is dermatologically-tested, vegan, and cruelty-free—all major plusses in my book.

I have a soft spot for hybrid products, so it’s no surprise that this facial mist is one of my biggest obsessions lately. Besides the (obviously) gorgeous packaging, the formula features 100% vegan ingredients, including antioxidant-rich adaptogens, hyaluronic acid, and peptides. It sprays evenly with a super-fine mist and seamlessly combines the experience of facial spray with the benefits of a serum. It's the perfect midday refresher and feels so luxurious—which is why it’s quickly gone from a splurge to a must-have in my skincare line-up.


This IT Cosmetics moisturizer is the Confidence in a Cream spin-off that I’ve been praying for—and it did not disappoint. The moisturizing gel has the skin-loving benefits that the original formula is famous for, but with a lightweight texture that feels great on oilier skin. In addition to offering hydration, the moisturizer helps improve skin texture and combat excess shine (call it a triple threat). I’ve been using this oil-free moisturizer at night to help balance my combination skin, and I already know I’ll be buying it again ASAP.

In the past, I had a complicated relationship with facial sunscreens: I found that everything I tried either left my skin feeling greasy, broke me out, or left behind a deeply unflattering white cast. But once I tried this sunscreen, I found myself excited to apply my SPF every morning. The fluid formula feels weightless on the skin and dries down quickly with a soft matte finish (a serious plus, since my skin leans oily). Plus, it’s non-comedogenic, so no breakouts, and it layers beautifully under makeup. I can’t sing its praises enough. 


Thanks to my job, I try a lot of skincare products (really—a lot), but this is one of the few products I find myself coming back to time and time again. The niacinamide and tranexamic acid-powered serum is the only thing that’s managed to lighten my stubborn post-acne marks and sun damage, and I love how transparent the ingredient list is—I know exactly what I’m putting on my face. Best of all, it’s affordable (even if you go for the jumbo size like I do).

CeraVe’s Daily Moisturizing Lotion is my year-round moisturizer, but if my dry skin is feeling extra thirsty, I’ll reach for the brand’s hyaluronic acid serum. Paired with the lightweight lotion, the hydrating formula softens my skin and creates a smooth canvas for makeup. Plus, the serum has a creamy consistency that I find substantial enough to use solo in warmer weather. 


I’m not a fan of the winter, so I spend most of January escaping the cold with my family in Florida. While I’m admittedly lenient with sunning my body, my face is off-limits—you’ll never catch me without a baseball cap and some SPF 60. Needless to say, by the end of vacation, my face looks like I left her in New York City, while my chest tells a different story. To blend my post-vacation tan with my mid-winter skin, I mix a few drops of this tanning oil into my face lotion. It’s the only tanner I’ve ever used that doesn’t turn me orange—and I love not having to damage my facial skin to get that sunkissed glow. Now, if only I applied those same rules to the rest of me…
