This summer, I interned at a PR firm whose clients are mainly beauty and wellness brands. In addition to learning valuable skills involved with managing a successful PR firm, I became absolutely obsessed with beauty and skincare products as a result. I had no idea the difference it would make once I learned my skin type and used products that cater to it.
I recently went on a family beach vacation, and my packing and bathroom space was limited. I applied my new knowledge of skin care to my minimalistic packing routine and realized that I’d love to share a favorites post with y’all! Hope you enjoy these go-to happy skin products as much as I do!
1—Coalface Charcoal Bar by Lush Cosmetics. I love this product so much that I’m currently on my fourth or fifth re-purchase. I find that I rarely buy the same product twice unless I really love it, so my dedication to Coalface is quite significant. This facial soap is so cool because it foams up when you wet it and can also be used directly on the skin as an exfoliant. Hello, 2-for-1 deal! My skin is oily and acne-prone, so anything charcoal is pretty much my BFF. I learned recently that not using oils or serums on oily skin will actually cause the skin to overproduce oil—mind-blowing, right? Coalface contains rosewood and sandalwood oils to keep the skin nice and balanced. I’m clearly obsessed.
2—Onomie Powerful Priming Serum. This serum was my first introduction to face serums and oils. To say my perspective on oils and serums changed would be a huge understatement. I love this brand because they are committed to keeping skin healthy by implementing vitamins and extracts that contribute to skins hydration, evenness, and firmness (aka wrinkle prevention). I absolutely love this product because it works as a serum and a makeup primer, allowing me to cut down my beauty routine by one step. It also has a little shimmer to it to help you stay on trend with the dewy look everyone is loving right now. Thanks, Kim K.
3—It Cosmetics CC+ Cream. It Cosmetics used to identify as a very “mom brand,” which is actually what initially drew me to them. I love anything anti-aging. Recently I’ve seen so many more beauty bloggers show interest in this brand, and rightfully so because their products are amazing. I have a hard time not using this CC cream every single day because not only is it a great foundation for the summer, but it also works as an SPF 50+ sunscreen. Can you tell I love 2-for-1 products?
Have you used and loved (or hated) any of these products? Could there possibly be something better? Let me know in the comments below!
