Current Favorite Skincare Products

Friday, May 10, 2019

After years of trial and error, I finally feel like I'm getting the hang of caring for my skin! Researching my skin type and really paying attention to what my skin likes has been a long, but ultimately rewarding, journey - and I wanted to share with you some of my holy grail skincare products!

Kocostar Sheet Masks *
I have always loved sheet masks but didn't notice a big difference between them - until I tried Kocostar's Sheet Masks! Their masks leave my skin feeling ultra hydrated, and are offered in a wide variety for varying skin concerns. Not only that, I'm in love with their "slice" concept - they've divided up the mask into 12 mini shaped "sheets" drenched in essence - think 12 mini strawberries or sunflowers - and you can place them wherever you want - face or body! I love that this helps you target moisture where you really need it, and not in your hair...!

Biore Aqua Rich Watery Essence Sunscreen
Arguably one of the most important but often overlooked skincare products, sunscreen has never been fun for my skin with it's oily tendencies...! I've been searching high and low for a sunscreen that doesn't make my forehead feel like an oil slick: enter Biore's Aqua Rich Watery Essence Sunscreen! After being recommended the product many times when asking for product recommendations, it more then lived up to the hype! It has a really nice thin consistency that melts into the skin well, and a scent that I find to be rather pleasant.

Pixi Double Cleanse *
Again, as an oily-combo skin gal, my first instinct with oil cleansers is to cringe - but I am equally smitten with both the cream and oil cleanser in this set from Pixi! Formulated by skincare maven Caroline Hirons, these cleansers don't leave my skin feeling striped of moisture but still manages to leave my face squeaky clean. I don't feel right without double cleansing after wearing a full face of makeup now...

Too Cool For School Egg Mellow Cream *
I am throughly impressed with this moisturizer from Too Cool For School - I instantly fell in love with it's milky consistency that my skin absolutely drinks up. It has an almost sticky texture that creates a flawless base for foundation to stick to!


  1. You look so cute! I want to try all of these, especially that egg moisturiser. I've been eyeing that for a while x

  2. Those sunflower sheet mask patches are so cute! ♥

  3. Although I don't currently own it, I've used Double Cleanse in the past and loved it! I think the formula of both the balm and cream cleansers is perfect, I just wish they both came separately and in bigger pots/tubes! I've also heard really good things about the Biore sunscreen, as well as a few Korean ones. I've not tried many as I've got a great, reliable sunscreen already that I keep going back to, but I'm glad you managed to find a sunscreen that you really like, because it can be tricky!

  4. I always love when you post something new!
    Skincare is so important and it's my favorite self-care thing to do everyday. :)
    Exercise being my least favorite. lol


  5. Have you tried the Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm? I love it as much as the CH Double Cleanse First Cleanse side, but given that I am not that excited about the cream cleanser in the duo, it is the much better option for me.

  6. Oh my gosh your satin night set is SO cute and I love its rose pink colour as well! x

  7. I never know if face masks actually do anything either, but I like the novelty of them hehe. I feel so pampered whenever I use them! // Love the illustration on the Egg Mellow Cream packaging! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
