updated skincare essentials – summer 2018

i was looking through my skincare + haircare essentials post i made last year, and realized how much my skincare routine has changed! my skin itself has changed a lot over the past year, going from combination/acne prone to very very dry but i still get hormonal breakouts. i’ve had to find a lot of new products to suit my skin’s current needs. keep reading to find out what i have been using!

cetaphil gentle cleanser for all skin types 

this is just a basic, gentle cleanser that i use morning and night to leave my skin feeling squeaky clean. i love that it is super affordable and can be found just about anywhere – drugstores, grocery stores, even readily available on amazon.

garnier skinactive micellar cleansing water for waterproof makeup

this is the only makeup remover i have tried that gets my waterproof eyeliner and mascara off with not a lot of effort! i mainly use this at night to remove makeup and oil from the day, but will also use it if i’m running really late in the morning and don’t have time to use a traditional cleanser.

thayer’s witch hazel toner

this alcohol free toner is not drying at all, but still helps to calm any breakouts and inflammation. it comes in a ton of scents but my personal favorite is the rose petal!

skinfood black sugar strawberry wash off mask 

this wash-off mask/exfoliator combo makes my skin feel amazing! it smells so good and really helps to slough off any of my dry skin and clear up any breakouts i might have.

organic rosehip oil serum 

i use this every night right before bed. it really helps to clear up any redness or hyperpigmentation on my face, and it also suck all of the oil plugs out of my nose and makes my pores appear smaller. it does look and feel very greasy on the face though, so i wouldn’t recommend for daytime use.

murad skin perfecting lotion

this is my favorite daily moisturizer to use in the summertime. its super lightweight and wears well under makeup, but also provides all the moisture i need throughout the day.

mario badescu facial sprays

i pick one of these up everytime i go to ulta. i love to use them to refresh my makeup in the middle of the day, and they feel especially great on hot summer days!

i also use masks 3-4 times a week but i’m constantly switching up what i use so i did not include any products! and thats basically my skincare routine! let me know if you want to know more about any products and i can do a whole post all about it!!
