Let's talk skincare. I think it's been a while since I've sat down and chatted about what skincare I've really been loving. Last summer, I don't even know how many skincare products I tried. It was craziness and truthfully, overwhelming.

I like to keep my skincare simple - and affordable, if possible. I do, however, believe you can't put a price tag on awesome skincare (I'm just sayin') BUT I've been absolutely smitten with my current skincare routine - and almost all of it is from derma E and won't break the bank. Have you tried them?
derma E isn't your run of the mill skincare brand. They started out in a small health food store and over the years have blossomed into one of the largest natural, clean skincare brands in the US, with products for an array of different skin types. You can read more about their story here!
I have been so lucky enough to try a bunch of their products over the past year and decided to come up with a list of my favorite must-haves to help y'all out. Keep in mind, I have normal/seasonally dry skin. I don't seem to have any sensitivities to anything. I've been using these products for AT LEAST three months, with some in use over a year.

  1. Nourishing Rose Cleansing Oil - This little baby is currently sitting in my empties pile. I used this thing down to the very last drop! I loved using this cleansing oil as it always left my skin feeling so soft after use, probably all thanks to the Argan and Jojoba oils. It had no issues removing my makeup - even the toughest waterproof liners and mascaras - and didn't leave any weird oily film on my skin. I will DEFINITELY purchase this again!
  2. Hydrating Night Cream - If you can only buy one thing off the list, THIS is the one. I've never met such a soft, hydrating cream. I'm sure you could use this as a day cream, with a light hand, but I love applying this right before bed and waking up with the softest skin I've ever had. It's truly one of my holy grails.
  3. Hydrating Eye Cream - Funny story. I bought the belief Moisturizing Eye Bomb a day before this eye cream showed up at my door. I have yet to use my belief one since. Oops. What I love the most is that you can wear this under your makeup with no creasing or concealer sliding around. It's lightweight but moisture-packed!
  4. Microdermabrasion Scrub - Isn't it funny? You don't realize your missing something until you try it and then you're like, "HOLY CRAP. Where have you been all my life?" Granted, I've exfoliated before but this microdermabrasion scrub is awesome. Apply a little of this to damp skin and scrub in circular motions and then rinse off with warm water. I had the worst dryness around my nose and this totally got rid of it.
  5. Anti-Wrinkle Cleanser - Apparently, I'm at an age where I need these kinds of things now, or so says that one meme about if you owned a pair of Steve Madden sandals, now you need anti-wrinkle stuff. Psh. Whether you have wrinkles or you're preventing them, this gentle cleanser is exactly what you're looking for. It contains Vitamin A, Glycolic Acid and Papaya to cleanse your skin. Just lather up and apply to a damp face (preferably, your own) and rinse with water.
  6. Rejuvenating Sage & Lavender Face Oil - You guys know by now how I feel about my facial oils. I'm obsessed. They're completely changed my skin's texture and just - I can't say enough good things about them. While I'm not the biggest fan of the scent of this one (I'm just not a sage lover), it's light enough that it isn't a big deal. This face oil contains fatty acids and essential oils to get your skin looking it's best. Just a few drops in your hands and gently apply to your face. I like to wait a few minutes before applying my makeup after use but my makeup always seems to look better with this underneath.
