I have been searching for a skincare routine that works for me for what feels like years! I have finally felt like I have found the best mix of products + brands that have helped me gain confidence in my skin! I have tried all these products for about 3-6 months and can truly so they have worked for me and my skin!
There are a mix of low budget and high budget products, but I have felt like my skin is worth the splurge + most of these products have lasted me at least 3 months! I want to do everything I can now to prevent pre-mature aging, and I can confidently say my skin has been happier than ever since being consistent and investing in my skincare!

My AM Routine
Rinse with Cold Water:
I don’t wash my face in the mornings, because all the oils and skincare from the night before makes my skin so smooth! I typically just do a quick rinse with cold water to help tighten my pores and wake me up!
I have tried A LOT of moisturizers, and let me tell you I am picky haha! I have loved Tula’s Day and Night Moistrizer but it does not have sunscreen in it. Use my girl Blake’s Tula Code for 15% off (blakehealey)
I was gifted Skin Authority’s Age Defining Moisturizer and so far I am liking it. I have been using it about a week in the mornings because it has SPF in it! It has felt great on my skin and has worked well under my makeup. The price tag is a bit high, but it does have some other Age defying features in it that typical moisturizers don’t have!
I am still in search of a middle price ranged face lotion that contains SPF! My fav site for clean beauty is Credo, so I will be testing several out from there soon!
My PM Routine
So honestly, I personally don’t think face wash plays a huge role in your skin care routine! Your face wash cleans your face from dirt & makeup then is completely rinsed off. It is not sitting or soaking into your skin. So with that said I will use any face wash or soap (but I do try and stay away from fragrances).
I have used Tula, Skin Authority, Neutrogena, Burts Bees Baby body wash, Cetaphil, and they all do they job! I think saving money on a face wash in order to invest in skincare that soaks into your skin is the way to go!
Retinol is amazing to skin smoothing, plumbing, and reducing fine lines! I love using a retinol but am still in search of a clean beauty brand option post pregnancy!
OIL IS LIFE! I am absolutely obsessed with this Peet Rivko Facial Oil. I tried several oils before this, and this one takes the cake! It does not me breakout and does not my any breakouts worse. They also sell a mini oil for only $10 if you guys wanted to test it out before buying the larger option!
Under the eyes, around the eyes, under the eyebrows, and into my smile lines, this moisturizing lift cream is bomb! One tiny pump goes a long way, and although it is a higher price point the bottle lasts about 2.5 months! Skin Authority has some other products I am excited to try as well, and I will keep you guys updated!!
