My 5 Favorite Skincare Products

My skin is a lot like Chicago weather. Beautiful one day. A crime scene the next. Basically, I need a lot to keep my skin looking and feeling fly. Here are 5 skincare products I use every week, some every day!

Intelligent Nutrients Refining Micro Polish

This is the best face wash I have ever used. EVER. Is it expensive? A bit…BUT you only need a little bit for your whole face. So while it might cost you about $50.00, that will last you 2 months if not more. I pop this on while I’m in the shower and my face is super soft once I dry off. Give it a whirl.

Kate Somerville Goat Milk Moisturizer

After washing my face I still need to moisturize. Why? I don’t know why! I’m a blogger, not a scientist or a dermatologist or a world class spa facial expert. All I know is, I always need to re moisturize my face. I put a little bit of this Kate Somerville moisturizer on and I’m set. This is another pricey item but if you do a little digging you can find discount codes or you can find it cheaper on amazon, other retail outlets. This stuff is the real deal. It keeps my face moisturized all day and just like the face wash above, you only need a little!

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter

This one is an oldie but a goodie. You can get it for under $5.00 at any drug store. In Chicago the cold weather can make you seriously itchy. I will literally rub this all over. ALL OVER. So, if you’re dealing with super dry skin. Cocoa butter will usually do the trick! At least for me.

Wander Beauty Dive In Moisturizer

This is the perfect moisturizer to take with you every day. It fits in your purse, pocket, backpack, fanny pack, anything. This is mainly for your face. Especially for tough spots like the crease of your nose or under your eyebrows. The easy spots to miss. It also smells really REALLY good.

Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Eye Mask

I pop these babies on every Sunday. I don’t know about you but at the very end of the week my undereyes look like they’ve witnessed a murder. I need something to perk them up and make me feel like a human again before another long week ahead. You can get these pretty cheap from Wander Beauty. Also – if you’re only using once a week they can last a pretty long time!

Well, that’s it friends. These are my favorite skincare products….of 2019 at least. Maybe next year I’ll have 5 more to share but until then….take care of yoself queens.

Self Care, Self Flare.
