Holy Grail Skincare Products

With the weather changing and also our skincare, I thought I’d share some of my holy grail skincare products that I love to use throughout the year, no matter what the season is. These products are my go-to that I will keep restocking on and seriously can't live without! Blume Meltdown Acne Oil   I seriously can’t live without this product. I’ve been using Blume’s Meltdown for about 3 years now and it’s what I reach for every time I have a pimple, or when I can feel one coming on underneath my skin. Key ingredients like blue tansy and tamanu oils are known for treating acne and work to soothe and calm irritation, redness and bacteria.  You can use Meltdown as a spot treatment, or if you’ve got more acne prone skin, use it as a face oil or mix in with your moisturizer. I can’t say enough good things about this product! Hello Sunday Vitamin Facial Mask This isn’t the first time I’ve mentioned Hello Sunday’s Vitamin Facial Mask, but that’s because it’s my all time favorite face mask. Hands down. This fruit-powered face mask gives you the ultimate glow and is perfect for no makeup days, or for an extra juicy boost under makeup. Papaya, watermelon, and strawberry extract work together for a winning combination. All three are rich in Vitamin C which helps with anti-aging ingredients key for a smooth, glowy complexion.  Mix the mask with water, or for an extra boost of hydration add in a few drops of your favorite face oil.  Moonbeings Celestial-C Serum   This is one of my favorite products to apply in the mornings. Not only does it pack a bright citrus scent, the hero ingredient blood orange is naturally rich in polyphenols known to increase circulation & collagen production, ease breakouts, inflammation and improve skin tone. Pairing this vitamin C serum with sunscreen helps defend against pollutants and free radicals during the day. It’s also great for sensitive skin because the base of the product is made with aloe vera, it’s gentle and soothing on the skin.   Imaya Retinoic Face Oil   This is the newest product on rotation, but I will definitely be restocking when I run out. Imaya Beauty has partnered with Amazonian producers in Peru to support the conservation and reforestation of the Amazon Rainforest. This retinoic face oil is made from 100% sustainably sourced wild harvested Aguaje fruit oil which is rich in Vitamin A - one of nature's best kept secrets for youthful, radiant skin. The beautiful orange oil absorbs quickly into the skin and leaves my skin feeling radiant and soft.  I noticed after about 1-2 weeks of usage once a day at night, my skin looked smoother, firmer, and more radiant.  I would highly recommend this product if you’re looking for a retinol alternative to try out!
