January Skincare Favorites

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 

1 | Laura Mercier Skin Polish - I actually bought this exfoliator on our honeymoon in Hawaii.  I naively forgot to pack an exfoliator and thought I could go without one, but after wearing a lot of makeup over our wedding weekend, I felt like my skin needed a good scrub.  I use this a couple of times a week and particularly when I have been wearing a lot of makeup and feel like I need to really take off all of the extras.  I love this exfoliator for winter, because it doesn't feel too rough on the skin. 

 2 | Philosophy Purity Cleanser - This is an oldie, but goodie.  I have been trying a bunch of new cleansers over the past year and landed back at this one.  There is a reason why it comes so highly recommended and has such good ratings.  It really does the work in taking every last bit of make up off your face at the end of the day without feeling overly drying or stripping of your skin.  

3 | Youth to the People Serum - I started using this serum day and night a couple of month ago and feel like it has really evened out my skin tone.  I love that it is super hydrating since it has hyaluronic acid in it and also very brightening with the vitamin C that is included.  A little goes a long way with a serum so I don't mind spending a little more knowing that it will last me a long time.

4 | Bobbi Brown Moisturizer - I use this every morning and love it for the winter.  It is a little thicker of a moisturizer than I typically wear, but love the extra hydration and SPF that this provides.  It's expensive, but you don't need much.  I have had the same bottle for 3 months now and barely made a dent.  

5 | La Mer Tonic - Whether or not you need to use a toner is up for debate, but if you do, this one is my latest love.  I should be more religious about using this, but definitely feel myself grabbing for it on a night that I wore more make up than usual.  It feels like one extra step to help ensure that you got all of your make up off before bed.  You'd be surprised what is left on your face even after exfoliating.  I've had the same bottle for almost 8 month now, but love trying new products so may try a different toner next!

6 | Kate Somerville Spot Treatment - If you struggle with acne at all, you NEED this treatment.  It literally is a miracle worker.  I've tested a lot of products over the last 15 years of struggling with my skin and this is the only one that I have found you could see changes overnight.  I've had my skin under control lately, but have to have this on hand as a safety net. 

7 | Bobbi Brown Eye Cream - I received a sample of this about a year ago and knew I would be buying the full size.  This eye cream is thick and hydrating, but not too thick to wear under concealer.  It's great for day and night. 

8 | Cinique Moisture Surge Face Spray - This spray is such a good refresh, especially in the winter months.  This spray is easy to add throughout the day when you need a quick refresh.  It's great to set makeup or put on to give extra hydration at the end of the day.  I sometimes even use it when I wake up in the morning before an early morning workout when I want some quick hydration and want to wake up.  There are a lot of good face sprays on the market lately, but I think this one is the most hydrating.

9 | Shiseido Sleeping Mask - I LOVE this sleeping mask.  I have been using it nightly for months.  It is so hydrating without feeling sticky or thick.  It is quick the sink into the skin so you don't feel like your face is going to stick to your pillow case and wake up feeling extra hydrated.

10 | Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm - My favorite flavor is the 'Shea Butter & Vitamin E'.  I keep a tub of this in my car, next to the bed, at my desk, in every purse, in every coat jacket... you get the idea. The texture is smooth and it has staying power.  I also love that it has SPF included so I know my lips are taken care of.  This stuff has really helped my lips during these cold winter months.
