A lot of you have been asking about my *sKiNcArE rOuTiNe*!!!
All jokes aside, I have in fact been getting some questions about my skincare favorites and I figured today was a good day to share because the Sephora sale opens to all Beauty Insiders today (it’s free to become an insider!) and most of these items can be purchased there so this way you can score a discount!
This is likely obvious but this is in no way sponsored by Sephora, just trynna save y’all some $$$ if I can!
If you’ve ever been nervous to try clean products, I urge you to give it a whirl. I found that when I narrowed down the number of products I was using and cut out some key toxic ingredients, my skin responded better! After years of acne and sensitivity, my skin was happy. Being gentle to my over-worked skin was a game-changer.
You can read more about my foray into clean beauty and skincare and the transformation to my skin here in my post about how I balanced my hormones naturally.
The below are what I rely on to keep my skin healthy, clear and hydrated day-to-day, and of course all of them are non-toxic, clean products!
Farmaesthetics Fine Herbal Cleanser
A gentle cleanser suitable for all skin types. It will not dry out your skin or break you out. It is pricey but it lasts me about 6 months and it is a woman-owned small business.
Timeless Skincare Vitamin C Serum
This vitamin C serum has been likened to the cult favorite Skinceuticals CE Ferulic, but comes in at a fraction of the cost. Whereas a bottle of the Skinceuticals pushes $200, a bottle of this Timeless vitamin C serum only puts you back $20 and you can get it via Amazon Prime.
Biossance Squalane + Peptide Eye Gel
This cooling eye gel instantly de-puffs like magic! Super hydrating – concealer goes on so much more smoothly.
Biossance Squalane + Probiotic Gel Moisturizer
If you are someone who prefers a gel moisturizer, whether that be during the Summer months or to protect eyelash extensions, this is my pick. With a light, soothing texture, it feels nice and lays well under makeup.
Juice Beauty Stem Celluar Anti-Wrinkle Moisturizer
My holy grail moisturizer! Though I always wait to buy during a sale, it is well worth every penny. The creamy texture is decadent and it will not clog pores or break you out. Plus, it smells incredible and lays really well under makeup. Read my full review here.
Supergoop! Glow Screen
This SPF blurs your skin ever so slightly while also imparting a pretty glow. Probably not best if you have oily skin, but fantastic for someone who likes a glowy, dewy finish.
Supergoop! CC Cream
A filter for your face! For days you want a little color and coverage, this blurs imperfections, redness, and hyperpigmentation in a natural-looking way.
*It appears this exact product has been discontinued and re-launched with a new name “CC Screen”. I cannot speak to the new formulation, so I recommend trying to find this original version on a site with some inventory left.
Isle of Paradise Tanning Drops
These tanning drops are as good as everyone says! A beautiful, natural, glowing bronze color that is incredibly easy to apply – simply add to your moisturizer! I use on both my face and my body and have never experienced any issues! *Be sure to get the right shade for you or it will not look natural. The medium is perfect for my lighter skintone.

Supergoop! Defense Refresh Setting Mist
Love a multi-tasking product. Supergoop! makes it so easy to incorporate SPF into your daily routine with this mist that will set your makeup while also spritzing you with a little extra SPF.
Supergoop! Lip Balm
The only lip balm I use! Another one that has been re-launched with a slightly different formulation. I prefer the original but the new version is still my daily go-to.
