My Summer 2019 Skincare Must Haves

Hey loves! As I’ve gotten cozy and comfy in my thirties, I’ve gotten much more serious about my skincare and overall health. It seems that quite a few of my followers have noticed! (I seriously love y’all! Lol.) I’d be lying if I said me and my skin have always been on the same page! Cause whew it’s been a journey to say the least. But, because I’ve received so many messages asking for my skincare secrets, I’ve decided to share the goods!

One thing that I’ve learned with all the trial and error is that keeping things as simple as possible really agrees with my skin. The products listed are items that I use on a daily basis mostly twice a day with the exception of the rose hydration moisturizer, vitamin e oil and glycolic peel. You’ll see how I use those in the details below, so just keep reading! And don’t worry, everything mentioned is linked. XOXO

My Summer 2019 Skincare Must Haves


Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel 

Although I use a few different facial cleaners, this is one of my favorites. I like that it cleanses my skin but doesn’t dry it out, which is very important since my skin is pretty sensitive. 




Insta Natural Organic Rose Toner 

I try to use 100% natural rose water for my toner. I like that it’s gentle on my skin but removes all the excess oils from my skin. After washing and drying my face I like to put some toner on a cotton ball and go over my skin. 




Insta Natural Vitamin C serum

This right here is a game changer! My skin has made leeps and bounds when I started usung this. It’s so much brighter and even. I normally use this every day morning and night after toning my skin.  





Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream 

This by far is my favorite moisturizer. I use this in the morning after applying my vitamin C serum. Also, I love that it’s moisturizing but also lightweight. Honestly, I have some oily spots and I hate moisturizers that make me look even more oily! With this product, I don’t feel like it’s clogging my pores at all. 



Kate Blanc Vitamin E Oil 

I am in loveeee with vitamin E. It’s such a beauty staple! Seriously… if you’re not using I’d suggest you hurry up and get with the program! I normally only apply this at night in place of my moisturizer. If you use this particular brand, don’t be alarmed at the initial thickness. Give it some time to absorb into your skin. 





Rose Quartz Roller

I hold this roller near and dear to my heart. I try to use it after I wash may face morning and night for a few minutes. There are many benefits that come with using this, including improved blood circulation and skin tone. But it also eliminate toxins, reduces puffiness and tightens pores. YES please! 




Caudalie’ Glycolic Peel

Ok so I try to use this peel once a week.  I love that and it takes off all the dead skin without any irritation. My skin always feels like brand new. 10 minutes, once a week.. that’s all it takes! 



Kinga Facial Steamer

I use my facial steamer as needed. Pretty much whenever I feel that my pores are super clogged, I pull this baby out. As I’m steaming, I like to cleans and tone (not sure if you’re supposed to do that lol). 





There you have it! I hope you guys found this list helpful! What are your skincare must haves?
