Finding the right combination of skincare products has always been a game of trial and error for me. Above is a list of my top ten favorites. These products work for me and here's how I use them:

1. Glam Glow Super-Mud Clearing Treatmnent: I try use this mask every three days and leave on for thirty minutes. I notice a significant reduction in congestion when I use this on a regular basis. 

2. Ole Henriksen Truth Serum: This product is oil-free, lightweight, and leaves my skin glowing. I love using this under my foundation.

3. Benefit Boo Boo Zap: The benefit girls introduced me to this product when I stayed in their villa during coachella. It truly works overnight wonders on occasional cystic acne. 

4. Proactiv Repairing Treatment: I've been using this product morning and night for ten years. I'm not really a fan of their cleanser or toner, but the repairing treatment is awesome. Highly recommend this over any other acne product, hands down. And, it's very affordable. 

5. Pomegranate Make-Up Removing Wipes: I love my facial wipes and this brand is my favorite. I use them morning and night to remove excess oil and make-up. 

6. Creme De La Mer Moisturizing Cream: This stuff is the bomb, but unfortunately, it's pretty expensive. Well worth the price and I use it very sparingly. Use as an under-eye cream at nighttime only. 

7. Murad Rapid Age Spot Serum: The best over-the-counter product for lightening hyper-pigmentation. I noticed a fifty percent reduction after the first month of use. 

8. Kate Sommerville Liquid Lift: I started using this product recently and absolutely love it. I use it when my skin looks dull and dehydrated. A great skin boost after flying. 

9. Kiehl's Creme De Corps Body Lotion: I use this daily after I get out of the shower. I've tried several body creams, and this one takes the cake. 

10. Amore Pacific Age Defense Creme: I use this creme nighttime only and apply it after the proactiv repairing treatment because it is pretty heavy. It would make a nice daytime creme if your skin is normal to dry because it contains a SPF 30. 

eBay has been a great place for me to score a majority of my skincare products at up to seventy-five percent off. You can find my top ten favorites in a collection here that I created as part of my collaboration with eBay.

Enjoy your Wednesday!

  4. Lovely post...I have hyper-sensitive skin so I am very careful what i use on it... a night out at an event with greeting and cheek kissing will leave me with a rash the following morning...I agree Creme De La Mer is by far the best..... I also love Chantecaille Flower Harmonizing Cream, I don't travel without it.. it hydrates the skin and leaves it with a glow... again its not cheap but its worth every penny.

  5. I can't believe you found this stuff on eBay! So brilliant. La Mer is a fav of mine as well.
