Tatcha Polished Classic Rice Enzyme Powder –I have been using this stuff for months and it is my absolute holy grail of exfoliating face wash. When I first got this my skin was freaking out, my pores looked so clogged up and none of my harsh exfoliants were helping. This cleared up my skin within a couple days and I have been using it ever since. It is super gentle but super effective and leaves my skin feeling clean and bright while making pores a thing of the past.

How I use: once or twice a day depending on how dirty my skin feels. If I wore full make up that day I will wash my face with a creamy cleanser before using the enzyme powder.

Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial – This stuff gives life to my skin. I have been using it once a week and each time I do my skin looks so bright and smooth afterwards. It is a super easy and pampering item to add into any skin care routine. Between this and my daily enzyme powder my skin has never looked better!

How I use: Apply to clean dry skin once a week, leave on for a max of 20 mins and rinse thoroughly with warm water. On the day I use this I will not use my rice enzyme powder and instead cleanse with a creamy cleanser to give my skin a break from extra exfoliation.

It soaks right into your skin and contains so many anti-aging goodies (because its never too early to prevent wrinkles right?). My skin instantly feels hydrated and so so soft. Honestly I don’t think it’s taking it too far to call it crack water.

How I use: After cleansing my skin (morning and night) I pore a little into the palm of my hand and smooth it all over my face then let it dry before applying more products.

Tatcha Luminous Deep Hydration Firming Serum – This serum is so luxurious. It using hyaluronic acid, red algae, a bunch of vitamins to hydrate and plump your skin. It also contains 23 karat gold for a luminous glow that is beautiful. My skin has been feeling so hydrated since I started using this.

How I use: Shake gently then apply one pump to skin following Tatcha The Essence (morning and night)

Drunk Elephant C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream – I never get too excited about eye creams to be honest. I was blessed with genetic dark circles and I don’t expect an eye cream to fix my genetic traits. That being said I really do like this eye cream. It is super thick and creamy and honestly has done a little bit for the look of my dark circles. I love that it contains peptides, vitamins and cucumber extract, I feel like I am nourishing my under eyes while hydrating them.

How I use: Apply half a pump to one pump to each under eye area and eye lid morning and night after Tatcha The Essence.

Tatcha The Water Cream – I’ve been loving this cream for a long time and it never gets old. It smells so luxurious and it literally melts into your skin. It’s made for normal to oily skin so I would suggest using this during the day and using a heavy cream at night if you have really dry skin. My skin is always fairly dry so in the winter I would pair it with a thicker night cream but for spring in summer it’s the perfect moisturizer for me!

How I use: Apply a small amount to face and neck after serum and eye cream (morning and night).

I am not the best when it comes to putting on chapstick throughout the day even though my lips tend to be quite dry. This product is perfect because all I have to do is use it at night before I go to bed and it keeps my lips hydrated and looking great all day. Day 3 of using this at night I was honestly blown away at how smooth and moisturized my lips felt. It was tough enough to get rid of my dry winter lips but it is staying as a must have this spring and summer because you have to keep your lips smooth for all those fun bright lipstick colors ladies!

How I use:Apply to clean lips every night before bed. Wash off any excess in the morning with a creamy cleanser.
