“Not only is my skin dry, it’s also sensitive, so I need products that are non-comedogenic and super moisturizing. That’s why I tend to love skin oils. The Ordinary is such a reasonably-priced brand and their products really do work. This one won’t clog pores, making it one of the best oils for acne-prone skin.” Argan oil is a great way to nourish your skin, and you can’t beat The Ordinary’s price and high-quality formulation. You can even use it in your hair for a silky shine!

“I first discovered CeraVe because the brand was recommended by my daughter’s dermatologist for her eczema. After some research, I discovered their Eye Repair Cream and figured I’d give it a shot, and I love it. It’s super lightweight yet gives a nice amount of moisture while helping to brighten up any dark areas. To apply, I pat it on strongly to stimulate the blood vessels and soak in the cream.” CeraVe has been a number one dermatologist recommended brand for many years, thanks to its quality ingredients and gentle formulation. Their Eye Repair Cream is a fan favorite, especially for those looking to spend a little less on products.

“Every skincare enthusiast knows the importance of adding vitamin C to your skincare routine. It calms my skin and prevents future sun damage.” We love it in a cleanser, and we love it just as much in a serum. Vitamin C will help correct dark spots, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and improve the overall appearance of your skin over time. Make sure you pair your vitamin C with sunscreen!
Featured Item: The Ordinary Ascorbic Acid + Alpha Arbutin 2%
“This is a great moisturizer for all of my needs: dry, sensitive, aging, and (lately) acne! The fact that this cream is soft, soothing, firming, and plumping without clogging my pores OR irritating my skin is a huge bonus. Score!” Is there anything this moisturizer cannot do? It’s an instant (and long lasting) dose of hydration with so many other perks, making it a must.
