Real talk, what are your HG (holy grail) products that are always on your vanity table? You know, those products you'll gladly shell out for every time?

CeraVe hydrating foam cleanser. I don't think I'll ever buy a different cleanser. Its not stripping and cleans off anything left over from my cleansing oil. And, it doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Huuuuge fan 👍

My HGs: ❤️ Mad Hippie eye cream - sooo goooood!! it's got the best ingredients for the price. i also love that it comes in a pump and not a jar, if I'm getting a product with quality ingredients I don't want it to come in a jar where exposure to air can affect the formula. ❤️ Missha first treatment essence - this was one of my first introduction to k-beauty around 4 years ago. I'd never used a hydrating toner before. this contains the same fermented ingredient as Estee Lauder's advanced night repair serum, which is quite expensive. the toner calms my skin down considerably and has given me more even skin tone over time. my skin also just feels more hydrated. this is always on my vanity table and used generously! ❤️ Garden of Wisdom Argan oil, Camellia Japonica oil - GoW is a small business that has a wide variety of different oils and makes small batch skincare. I bought a bunch of oils to try and recreate a Sunday Riley oil blend (🤣) and while that... was not a success, I loved the individual oils to use on their own. I use argan oil primarily for my hair and the Camellia oil as my night-time facial oil to seal everything in. It's not too heavy and absorbs beautifully into my skin. I wake up to super soft and supple skin.

I love Sunday Riley Good Genes. It's my ride or die chemical exfoliator, it's given me baby soft and smooth skin. It's one of the rare few products that showed results almost right away.

• I have been using The Ordinary’s Niacinamide and Zinc for about 2 months and I've noticed a change in the the size of my pores. They are not as large as they used to be and spaces like my nose and cheeks I have not seen as much sebum. • I have been searching for a mineral sunscreen that would blend well with my skin tone and not leave a white cast. Cerave’s Hydrating sunscreen does the job! Leaving no white cast on my face whatsoever.

Three of my FAVS right now. Aquaphor: I have a tube in my make-up bag and by my bedside at all times. The best for chapped lips or any part of my face that feels particularly dry, especially in the winter when I develop dry patches on my face. Definitely healing and the best product when I'm trying to seal in moisture. TO Retinol 0.5% in Squalane: This is the starter retinol that I recommend to EVERYONE. This was my first product from TO and it did not dissapoint–saw so much improvement for my skin, especially with some very early fine lines I was seeing around my laugh lines and forehead. Never went through a purging period, just better skin. Don't mix this with other AHA/BHAs in the same routine though–you will shed skin and get flaky, the likes of dandruff level. Farmacy Cleansing Balm: So easy, so pleasant. Love everything about it–being able to carry it everywhere, the green color, the balm texture, the slip it provides for my first cleanse. I'm on my 4th jar of this and it's hard to think I'll be switching from this. I do use it up pretty fast though, since I'm generous with my scoops. Ideal first cleanse for sensitive skin!

I'll probably always have my Cerave PM in my skincare routine as long as it's around. It's my fail safe moisturizer and perfect for cocktailing with other hydrating serums with Hyaluronic or Peptides. Not too thin or rich in consistency, so it's good all year-round for me.

Supergoop Sunscreen mist and Glossier Milk Jelly! Two of my absolute favorites 💕
