My Top 5 Holy Grail Skincare Products
Best Daily Exfoliant
Number 1 on this list is the Dermalogica Microfoliant. It’s a total game-changer when it comes to exfoliation. This cult beauty product has a massive following, and for good reason – it delivers amazing results!
The Microfoliant is a powder exfoliator that’s formulated with rice-based enzymes to gently remove dead skin cells and leave your complexion looking brighter and smoother than ever before.
The best part? You can customize the level of exfoliation to your liking by adjusting the amount of water you mix in with the powder. Genius, right?
But what really sets the Dermalogica Microfoliant apart is the way it transforms your skin after just one use. It’s greatly improved my skin tone and texture and everyone I’ve recommended it to loves it! It a true a miracle worker. Plus, it’s free of artificial fragrances and colors, making it safe for even the most sensitive skin.
Best Eye Makeup Remover
CeraVe Comforting Eye Makeup Remover
The CeraVe Comforting Eye Makeup Remover just launched earlier this year and has quickly made it to the top of my list of best skincare products!
This eye makeup remover is the most gentle I’ve ever experienced! It’s formulated with hyalauronic acids and ceramides, which help to hydrate and strengthen the skin barrier around your eyes.
The CeraVe Comforting Eye Makeup Remover effortlessly removes my eye makeup, while leaving the skin soft and smooth without any oily residue or irritation at all. It’s also paraben-free, fragrance-free, colorant-free, and alcohol-free makeing it suitable for all skin types and contact lense wearers. Plus it’s super budget friendly, which makes it a great drugstore buy!
Best Vitamin C Serum
Dr. Dennis Gross Vitamin C Lactic 15% Firm & Bright Serum
A bit of a splurge yes, but totally worth it! If you’re on the hunt for a serum that can transform your skin, look no further than the Dr. Dennis Gross Vitamin C Lactic 15% Firm & Bright Serum. This powerhouse formula is a game-changer when it comes to achieving a radiant, youthful complexion.
The serum’s key ingredients, lactic acid and vitamin C, work together to gently exfoliate your skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and brighten your complexion. And the results? Glowing, firm, and even-looking skin that you’ll love showing off.
But what really sets this serum apart is how quickly it delivers results. After just a few uses, you’ll notice that your skin looks brighter, smoother, and more even-toned. And with continued use, you’ll see a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Best Daily Sunscreen
Dermalogica Prisma Protect SPF 30 Moisturizer
The Dermalogica Prisma Protect SPF 30 Moisturizer is a my personal choice for for an easy-to-use everyday moisturizer that also provides sun protection. Its lightweight, non-greasy formula works well under makeup and makes a great base and its SPF 30 helps to shield your skin from harmful UV rays and blue light.
But what really sets this moisturizer apart is its innovative technology – it contains light-activated ingredients that work to hydrate and brighten your skin throughout the day, giving you a natural, radiant glow. And because it’s formulated with ingredients like matcha, a powerful antioxidant that protects your skin from environmental stressors.
Overall, the Dermalogica Prisma Protect SPF 30 Moisturizer is a great option for anyone who wants to streamline their skincare routine with a one step moisturizer, sunscreen and primer. It’s perfect for every day use and will leave your skin looking and feeling healthy and radiant.
Best Eye Cream
Glow Recipe Avocado Melt Eye Cream
The Glow Recipe Avocado Melt Eye Cream is longtime favorite when it comes to eye treatments. It does wonders reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and really helps to brighten the whole eye area.
The formula itself feels lightweight. but is still moisturizing, packed with nourishing avocado and encapsulated retinol. It’s also very gentle and good for everyday use, unlike some retinol products that can cause sensitivity or peeling. And because it’s a sleeping mask, you can simply apply it before bed and let it work its magic while you sleep.
The Glow Recipe Avocado Melt Eye Cream also contains nourishing ingredients like niacinamide and allantoin, which help to soothe and hydrate your skin. And because it’s free of harsh chemicals like parabens and sulfates, it’s suitable for even the most sensitive skin types.
