Life File: Favourite Skincare Products

Today I want to share the best of beauty products I use. These are my favourite products and when I say that they work, it’s because they really do. As you can see I’m a big fan of Fresh; their products are paraben/sulfate/phthalate free, beautifully scented, lightweight, effective…everything I try works so I highly recommend them as part of your skincare routine 🙂 It’s one of the very few brands that won’t break my skin when I try a new product and I’m always hearing great things about it.

Another brand I love is Tatcha, and ever since I tried their beauty oil I’ve been hooked! I love when you fall for a brand that not just makes great products but also gives back to the community, and that’s exactly what they do through their partnership with Room to Read. Keep reading for the whole list and why I like each product 🙂

FRESH CLEANSER: One of the things I love the most about this cleanser is how gentle yet very effective in removing makeup is.

ESTEE LAUDER ADVANCED NIGHT REPAIR: I’ve been using this for years and I can honestly say I can notice the difference in my skin the night I don’t apply it.

FRESH TONER: A calming and alcohol-free toner that preps the skin for your next skincare step and makeup. I love the light scent!

BIOTHERM CLEANSER: I’ve been using this for at least 10 years and I love the clean and fresh scent. I use it to clean my face everyday before I apply toner and moisturizer.

L’OCCITANE ALMOND SUPPLE SKIN OIL: This is great if you have dry skin or to keep it moisturized during the harsh winter months. Leaves your skin silky smooth!

TATCHA GOLD CAMELLIA OIL: Have you guys heard of this brand? It’s a skincare brand from Japan that not only makes amazing products but that gives back to the community by providing 1 day of school to children in need for every purchase. It was introduced to me maybe 2 years ago? and I was immediately hooked after trying the beauty oil. It’s light but rich, has this incredible scent and makes makeup application easier as everything runs very smooth on your face after you have applied it.

FRESH EYE CREAM: I started using this cream this year and I’m LOVING it. Often times when I try a new product my skin breaks a bit for a couple of days to adjust to the new ingredients, but this is not what has happened with this line of products I’ve been using since the start of the year.

FRESH ANTI-AGING TREATMENT: So this is a moisturizer you can use day and night, very rich and great for dry skin. Since learning that my skin was a bit dehydrated I started using this everyday and I can honestly tell the difference. If you have dry skin you’re going to love this product. I seriously give the whole Ancienne line two thumbs up!

SUGAR FACE POLISH AND ROSE FACE MASK: I find that all their face masks are amazing! The sugar face polish is great for exfoliating and the rose face mask hydrates and tones. Both can be used several times a week and you apply them for 5-10 minutes and then rinse off with warm water. I always love how they leave my skin. Their black-tea perfecting mask is also great.

L’OCCITANE HAND AND FOOT LOTIONS: I haven’t found a hand lotion better than this one, and the foot cream is just as good! I keep small ones in my bag and a big tub on my bedside table. I use the foot cream when I exfoliate my feet, so after scrubbing them with a foot file I apply a generous amount of lotion and then wear socks overnight to lock in the moisture. The next day my feet feel super soft 🙂
