Today I’m giving you a peek inside my favorite skincare products. I am totally a skincare junkie. I legitimately enjoy researching “skincare tips”, “at-home facials” and “how to get perfect skin.” ha! I’ve learned a lot of things over the years and have truly found a regimen that works great for my combination (more dry than oily) skin type.
 
Now let’s talk about some of these products and their benefits, shall we?
 

Daily Musts

First up, my everyday cleanser and moisturizers. I’ve been using Sunday Riley ceramic clay cleanser since December 2015 and my skin always feels so clean afterwards. I like that the product doesn’t get too foamy or soapy. The natural ingredients have really helped restore my skin. If you’ve tried it and are looking for something else I can recommend Bare Minerals CLAY Cleanser (it’s great too). For my day-time moisturizer I use First Aid Beauty’s Oil-free Mattifying Gel as my daily moisturizer. Don’t be alarmed by the term “gel” like I was in the beginning. It actually still looks like a white moisturizer but feels light-weight and doesn’t leave a greasy residue on the skin. For my day-time SPF moisturizer I use this one from Elemis. It’s honestly the only SPF I like because a.) it doesn’t turn my skin white, and b.) the consistency is not thick! Fun Fact: I used to mix my SPF with my moisturizer (or use one with SPF already in it) but I learned thats actually what may have caused these hard but small little breakouts. I never knew the cause! My estehician said to always put SPF on AFTER your moisturizer because you don’t want it to penetrate into your skin. You simply want the SPF to sit as a barrier on top of your moisturizer to protect you from the sun. I haven’t seen those annoying bumps ever since! Lastly, for my night-time moisturizer I’ve been using Shea Terra’s Organics Rose Cream. It’s more rich than my day-time cream which is what I need to help restore and re-hydrate my skin while I sleep. I’m a huge fan of it!
 

 Skin Balancing Products

I never really knew that balancing the PH of my skin was an important step to include into my regimen. My eyes were opened when I stumbled upon an article online that mentioned the benefits of these products. Long story short, I used to get rough black heads around my nose and no matter how many times I exfoliated, washed my face or went in for a facial – they would creep up on me constantly! I soon learned that my skin’s PH was off and that I needed a skin balancing toner. Right now I’m using this toner above from Murad, but I’m not 100% hooked on it. I just re-ordered La Therapie’s skin balancing toner that I became so obsessed with but you can only get it online (hurry up and arrive!) I also use their under-eye cream (forgot to snap pic) which is so amazing too! Jurlique’s Rosewater Balancing Mist has been my favorite for traveling. It’s great for long airplane flights or using in your everyday routine. Another product I’ve been using day and night after I apply my toner – is this Boscia Sake Treatment Water. It’s an innovative, sake-infused, Treatment Water that hydrates, brightens, and preps the skin for maximum absorption of treatments, serums, and moisturizers. I loveeeeeee it!
 

Exfoliators

These are some of my favorite exfoliating products. I don’t recommend using these all at once obviously, but just wanted to throw out some of my faves. Let’s start with my go-to. Sunday Riley’s Good Genes treatment. This is the prices item in my skincare cabinet ($105) but it will last you forever. I apply a very small amount 2-3 times a week before bed after I Cleanse + Tone. I leave it on my skin (recommended) followed by my rich SheaTerra moisturizer and it seriously has transformed my skin. I wake up the next morning and literally – my skin is glowing. Another exfoliator I sometimes use is this Tri-Active Exfoliant from iS Clinical. This is one that you should use once every 2 weeks. It is like a microdermabrasion in a bottle. I always use it when I return from my travels. It’s one that my esthetician recommended. And if you’re looking for a night-time oil that’s also anti-aging you might want to try LUNA from Sunday Riley. It’s exactly what it reads on the bottle (see above). Last but not least I’m hooked on this pumpkin masque from Banish. It’s all natural and organic and leaves my skin feeling soft and looking refreshed every time. Get it here.
 

Natural Makeup Remover

I hate taking off my eye-makeup at the end of a long day, but I haven’t slept with makeup on since I was 14. (I seriously have not missed a day since!!!!) I found that this natural eye-makeup remover from Alba that I got at Whole Foods works great on my skin! It doesn’t irritate my eyes or leave them itchy and dry afterwards. Another great thing you can try is coconut oil. Works just a great! 😉

 

I hope this post answered all of your skincare questions for me. I know maintaining healthy skin can be a pain. One day you love your skin and the next day it hates you. I encourage you not to give up. It sucks when you spend tons of money on products that you feel aren’t doing the job but keep in mind that it’s totally normally to experience occasional breakouts. I used to think that getting a pimple meant it was time for me to change my skincare routine. Wrong! The key is to maintain an even, healthy looking skin tone and not to freak out when a pimple comes because I promise it will eventually go away. 😉 Patience is key.

 

If my skin is something I have to look at for the rest of my life,  it’s worth investing in. I hope this post inspired any of you out there who need it. Thanks for stopping by. Love you guys!

 

Cheers!

    1. Try using new brand Solvaderm Skincare Products which is Scientifically Advanced, Researched by Scientists, Formulated by Dermatologists and Dispensed by Skincare Professionals.

  1. Oooh I’m going to try using coconut oil to remove my eye make up. I’m sure that will make my face a lot more moisturised than my wipes.
    Also, I haven’t left my eye make up on either since I can’t remember when lol.

  2. Thank you for providing such a beautiful products which are really useful.I also Heard lot about Jade cosmetics for their 100%natural and organic products & they work really wonder. All of them will provide you real benefits. Your investment in them will be worth. I strongly recommend Jade Cosmetics!

  3. It is easy to forget that your skin is your body’s biggest organ so we should all be taking really good care of it! Thanks for the in depth blog, Sazan! 🙂

  4. Hi Sazan, do you use any instruments with your cleansers to clean your face such as the Foreo Luna or Clarisonic etc? Are you still using the Magic Mitt?

  5. Hi Sazan! Thank you for sharing your skincare products with us! I’m new to your blog and I love it! You are such a doll! I’m grateful to have found you! 🙂 I look forward to trying out the Shea Terra’s Organics Rose Cream! Hope you and your loved ones have a very Happy Easter!

  6. Hey there, I am really glad to find your informative blog. Your favorite skin care tips has become my favorite too. Thanks dear for sharing this cool content with us.

  7. Hi Sazan!…I am clueless when it comes to makeup, and skincare so I was thrilled when I found your youtube video about no foundation, that is my daily…so I took some of your tips. As far as a skincare routine….I don’t have one. I moisturize….that is it. I have a pretty neutral skin type, if anything more dry than oily but can have breakouts in my t-zone. So for a beginner like me that doesn’t want to drop $500 bucks on all these great products. What are the essentials to starting out. I plan to grab them all, just gradually.

  8. Hola Sazan! Thanks for the tips and products. I may switch up my Rose water to your recommendation. I really enjoy using mine which is purchased at Sprouts(yes, the grocery store) its the Burts Bees brand! It’s soft, refreshing and leaves a dewy look on your face plus smells like roses. I splash it directly on my face, I don’t use cotton pads. If you try it & you like it, hope to hear a shout out from you☺️ Stay beautiful , ✌🏻️Norma in San Diego ☀️

  9. Hi Sazan
    I’m from India … The climate here is so humid… It makes our skin really oily … I was thinking of buying these products but I don’t they will work for me since my skin type is oily
    Do u recommend any products for oily skin ?

  10. These are all great recommendations and I love your makeup tips but I swear by Rodan and Fields Redefine System. Since I started using it my skin looks and feels so much better. I am happy to share my results with anyone if you are interested.

  13. Hi,
    I’ve been using the Murad toner for a couple of months now, and I love it! This toner helped me save a few bucks for my moisturizer because I often don’t feel the need to moisturize because the toner leaves my skin supple and hydrated. Thanks for sharing!
