💖✨My 2018 Skincare Faves✨💖 💎First Cleanse #FourthRayBeauty Cleansing Oil | V gentle on my eyes (I have sensitive eyes) & it effectively removes all of my makeup. Doesn’t leave a film behind - it just leaves my skin feeling fresh & balanced. 💎Second/Morning Cleanse #Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser | An all time favorite. Feels soothing on my skin & it never irritates my eyes pH around a 4.5. 💎Hydrating Face Mask #SummerFridays Jet Lag Mask | Whenever I need a pick me up I reach for this guy. It hydrates, calms, and it’s incredibly multipurpose. Works as a primer, eye mask, face mask, and a moisturizer! 💎Resurfacing Face Mask #DrunkElephant Baby Facial | A game changer. I have used this for over 2 years & I completely swear by it. Gives my skin a mega glow - plus it works to diminish my hormonal breakouts, black heads, & white heads. I use this once a week. 💎Spritz #SaturdaySkin Daily Dew Hydrating Essence Mist | Does an amazing job at boosting my hydration levels - my skin analyzer agrees. 💎Toner #Acwell Licorice pH Balancing Cleansing Toner | The best toner I have ever used. It makes my skin look noticeably brighter and plumper. 💎Retinoid #Differin Gel Adapalene 0.1% | I have used this for over a year now and its been a rollercoaster. At first it dried out & sensitized my skin but after figuring it out it has become a fave! This has helped treat my congestion, breakouts, blackheads, & whiteheads. I use it 3x a week. 💎Chemical Exfoliant #BiologiqueRecherche P50W | This is my secret “weapon”. If my skin is freaking out I know I can reach for this & it slowly helps bring back equilibrium. Basically it’s gentle but effective. 💎Treat #Asarai Response Theory Daily Serum | It has a beautiful light texture & it does a wonderful job at calming my redness. ✨List Continues in Comments✨

These are just a few of the brands @dermstore carries that I’ve tried so far. I love most of them except for the iS Clinical Active Serum- just couldn’t get over the menthol in it, it’s not a sensation I’m a fan of & I could have done without. Apparently there’s only a few participating brands in their 20% off sale, so sorry about that. BUT if you sign up for their emails they will give you a 20% coupon to use on anything. _ Top picks: _ 1. Indie Lee Rosehip Cleanser _ 2. Skinceauticals CE Ferulic _ 3. Herbivore Coco Rose Scrub _______________________________ Other Products: _ @youthtothepeople Cleanser - good cleanser too. It’s 8oz for the same price as the 4oz indie one. _ @renskincareus Ready Steady Glow _ @skinceuticals CE Ferulic _ @herbivorebotanicals Green Tea Toner _ @sundayriley Blue Moon Cleansing Balm- I love this a lot, it removes my makeup really well even mascara, it’s 3.4 oz, love the ingredient list, but I know it’s expensive for a cleansing balm that’s why it didn’t make it to the top of my list. Lot out there that work as great for less. _ @herbivorebotanicals Rose Hibiscus Mist-This travel size bottle came as a set with the scrub & lip conditioner—a pretty good deal imo. I usually use the heck out of mists during the summer to make the texas heat more tolerable, so I’m saving it up until then.😂 *** _ @herbivorebotanicals Lapis Oil - I’ve talked about this one before. *** _ @indie_lee Rose Hip Cleanser - I just love how my skin feels after this, it doesn’t leave it feeling tight, has great ingredients, but it could have a better pump. ** _ @jaderollerbeauty Jade Roller - for those asking what a jade roller does, they claim it’s supposed to improve circulation in the skin, reduce swelling around the eyes in the morning, etc. Some people like to use them cold so they keep them in their fridge. I first came across a jade roller on eBay when I was looking for something to apply my skincare products with, but turned to be really crappy—this one is 👍. *** _ @isclinical Active Serum *** _ @herbivorebotanicals Coco Rose Body Scrub ** _ @herbivorebotanicals Jasmine Green Tea Toner _ ***=gifted by dermstore **= gifted by herbivore
