Aveda Botanical Kinetics Intense Hydrating Rich Creme *
After being in search of a moisturizer for the face that works well for the colder months, I’ve finally found it. This rich cream locks in moisture and throws away the key! Chief ingredients salicornia herbacea and cupuacu butter help skin absorb and seal in moisture respectively.

Context Daily Facial Cleanser *
This cleanser is amazing. The consistency is more milky than gel-like, which I love. I specifically like to use this as a morning cleanser when I barely have anything on my face. It’s so gentle and leaves the skin feeling super clean. I tested this on dry skin (mine) and oily skin (my boyfriend’s) and it agrees with both of our skin types. This cleanser employs ingredients such as avocado oil, chamomile oil, vitamins a + e, as well as jojoba oil which all work to condition and cleanse the skin.

Desert Essence Organic Coconut, Coffee + Jojoba Oil *
Seriously the best part of waking up is this stuff! Such a great fall/winter staple! You can read more about it here

Pixi Glow Tonic
Finally got my hands on this cult favorite back in September and have been using it ever since. Currently half-way through the bottle! Love how this gently exfoliates my skin and gets rid of any residue I may have missed during cleansing. Formulated with ginseng and glycolic acid, this product tones, tightens and firms the skin.

Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil
This is the very first oil cleanser formula I have tried and I really love it. This blend of argan, sunflower, safflower and grape seed oil is my go-to as the first step in my double cleansing routine. This oil cleanser does a great job of removing the makeup from your skin while preparing your skin for the next steps of your routine.

Aveda Hand Relief Creme
Calling all dry skin sufferers! You need this hand creme. I can’t seem to put into words how deeply this baby moisturizes. I love this stuff, it leaves your skin, moist, smooth and smelling amazing for hours!

Spa Cosmetics Marula Oil Eye Cream
Ever wake up with dry and dull under eye skin accompanied with an ugly charcoal grey color? Yep so did I! Seriously love this eye cream. I have recommended this product to all of my friends! I found this gem while perusing T.J Maxx’s beauty section (as usual). Made in Israel, the cream is enhanced with minerals from the dead sea that work to provide a lasting hydration and conditions the under eye area.
