I’m always changing up my skincare routines, tweaking them to fit the season and my skin’s needs. I love to try new products, but I also will stick with products that work great for me. One thing to note is that I try to keep most of my products in the mid-price range: no, my skincare products aren’t the cheapest, but they certainly aren’t the most expensive products out there, either. These are the products I currently use in my morning routine.
HollyBeth Organics Chamomile Foaming Cleanser – I just love this as a morning cleanser. My skin isn’t dirty in the morning, but I still want to “wash” – and this cleanser is perfect because it is mild and incredibly hydrating due to all the wonderful oils it contains. Not only is this a very affordable clean skincare product, but one pump is all I need so it will last a while.
Root Science RS Youth Serum – I am just smitten with my sample bottle of this gorgeous serum. It has a stellar list of ingredients (including prickly pear seed, tamanu, and sea buckthorn oils), smell wonderful, and is perfect consistency for layering under makeup. I really want a full-size and this is one of the few high-end products I actually want to buy. I’m trying to make my sample last long enough to hopefully buy a full-size with a discount code. Crossing my fingers, because this serum is amazing.
Acure Organic Argan Oil – Argan oil was my “gateway oil” and I still think it’s a fantastic basic oil. Acure’s version is fairly easy to find and affordable compared to some higher-end brands. I add a drop or two of this to my skin along with the RS Youth Serum in the morning.
One Love Organics Brand New Day Scrub + Masque – I wrote a post about how I use this with manuka honey when I want a calming face mask on the weekends. This is a lovely, gentle scrub and the smell is tropical fruit heaven.
Acure Brightening Facial Scrub – I use this dark green scrub about twice a week when I’m in the shower. This contains argan stem cells, chlorella growth factor, and green clay. It is a nice, affordable exfoliator that smells nice, works well, and isn’t too rough on my skin.
100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Eye Cream – This is a lighter eye cream, so it is better for layering under my makeup in the morning. I keep reading that people say this smells like coffee, but to me, it smells like an amazing vanilla buttercream frosting. A bonus is that my tube is lasting forever, making it even more wallet-friendly.
Heritage Store Rosewater Mist – I use this after cleansing and before I put on my serum, and then again to set my makeup. It smells like a fresh bouquet of roses. I really love the way this sets my makeup and gives a nice glow to my skin. It’s like it helps the makeup to really set better on the skin, which makes it look more natural.
Are there any morning skincare products you can’t live without? Do you use any of these products?
