  • Hanskin-Pore Cleansing Oil - PHA
    STEP
    1
    I use this cleansing oil from Hanskin, which contains PHA, a gentle type of acid. I like this because the oil is thinner (almost watery in texture) and easy to rub, so I can give my skin a mini-massage and some lovin' as I wind down during the night. 🙂
  • CAUDALÍE-Instant Foaming Cleanser
    STEP
    2
    Next, I use a foaming cleanser from Caudalie! Ever since I studied abroad in France, I've had a soft place in my heart for Caudalie products. I've never broken out from any of their products. This one is a mousse-like texture and I like the scent (which is there, so beware if you don't like fragrances!). I appreciate that I don't need to rub my face too hard with this. Overall have really been enjoying this cleanser.
  • Kiehl's Since 1851-Cucumber Herbal Alcohol-Free Toner
    STEP

    Next, I use this Cucumber herbal toner to go over my face once more. I'll wet a cotton pad with this and wipe it all over my face. It feels super refreshing because of the cucumber scent. 🥒
  • PEACH & LILY-Glass Skin Refining Serum
    STEP
    4
    My skin has been feeling really dull lately so I bought this Peach & Lily serum from Ulta. The formula absorbs easily and doesn’t feel tacky on the skin. I think it's the blend of brightening and anti-aging ingredients that has really helped my skin. My skin is smoother and clearer – think it's helping fade dark spots.
  • DARPHIN-Ideal Resource Light Re-Birth Overnight Cream
    STEP
    5
    I tried a sample of this and just had to get this! It's a night cream from Darphin, again one of my favorite French brands. I find that this cream really helps to retain moisture, especially in the winter months. I wake up with supple, *glowing" skin. I like that it's not too thick or balmy, and a little of it goes a long way. This has been a go-to night cream for me for a few years.
  • KORA Organics-Noni Radiant Eye Oil
    STEP
    6
    I actually prefer oils vs. creams in my eye area, because it's more hydrating, concentrated, and also blocks hydration from escaping while I sleep. This is a gift I received from a friend – I like it, it's OK, but not my favorite ever. I do think it's a well formulate combination of oils.
