  • boscia-MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil
    STEP
    1
    I use this as a first cleanse. Apply to dry skin, rub-a-dub, then wash off with warm water. I always use an oil cleanser as my first cleanse – I find that it melts away my sunscreen and make-up very well.
  • AMOREPACIFIC-Treatment Cleansing Foam
    STEP

    I picked this one up at a Duty Free shop when I went on vacation to Thailand. Otherwise, I'm not sure if I could have justified the price, lol. Honestly I love it and it doesn't feel stripping, which is my biggest thing. I'm also probably going to default back to my Cerave cleanser after this, though. Definitely a "treat yoself" buy.
  • Drunk Elephant-T.L.C. Framboos™ Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum
    STEP
    3
    This is a serum that contains both AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) and BHA (beta hydroxy acid) chemical exfoliants. Previously I only used BHA (Salicylic Acid) on my skin primarily for acne flare-ups, which really just dried out my skin like crazy. This serum has really helped with my blackheads, small pimples, and scarring. My wallet (and soul) cries a little when I replenish this every 3 months, though.
  • Shiseido-Benefiance Wrinkle Smoothing Eye Cream
    STEP

    This is like a hand-me-down from my mom. She always seeks out the *thickest* eye creams, and this is what she settled on. That philosophy has been passed onto me. So while I understand technically any face cream suits your eye area just fine, I'd like to blanket my delicate eye area with the most emollient, rich cream I can get my hands on, thank you very much.
  • Dr. Jart+-Cicapair™ Tiger Grass Calming Gel Cream
    STEP

    Yessss Dr. Jart! My MVP find at Sephora. I've tried a lot of their products and nothing has disappointed me thus far. Right now, this moisturizer is what I'm using. It's a lighter gel consistency, and it works well for my oily skin.
  • The Ordinary-100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil
    STEP

    As a last step, I'll press a few drops of rosehip oil into my face. It feels SO good and serves as low-key aromatherapy. I love it.

Duty free is totally the best place to pick up products. No tax is liberating.
