I happen to love skin care products just as much as I love makeup!  There are so many great cruelty free products out there so it was quite difficult to decide on my top 3, BUT I did it!  



This face wash is so incredibly refreshing!  I initially picked it up in an edivv trade in the deluxe sample size and I fell in love...First of all, it smells delicious...With coconut water and sea algae complex...can you say tropical island getaway? This cleanser is also sulfate, paraben & phthalates free, 100% vegan and made in the USA <3.  As soon as I used it the very first time I was hooked.  It leaves your skin feeling light and clean without that tight, drying feeling.  It also tones as it cleans for those of us trying to cut down on morning prep time.  Pacifica is a great brand overall.  I have never been disappointed with any products I have tried from them and they have a very affordable price point!

I don't know about you but as I have gotten a little older, I can definitely feel a huge difference on the texture and elasticity of my skin.  I really noticed in the mornings after spending an entire night sleeping with the air conditioner and a fan going in our bedroom.  When I would wake up in the mornings my skin was incredibly dull and all the fine lines and wrinkles just stood out horribly.  Then I found the Radha Beauty Rosehip Oil.  This is a miracle worker!  It absorbs quickly but lasts all night and I wake up with my skin feeling soft and supple.  Did you know that rosehip oil is rich in lycopene?  Well, you know now!  Lycopene helps protect skin from premature aging!  You don't have to slather it on either...a little goes a long way.  I use about 4-5 drops every night.  

This face mask became a most recent fave thanks to Petit Vour.  This mask is formulated with super fruits & raw cacao, which provide powerful antioxidants, as well as, zeolites & clays to deep clean, exfoliate, and eliminate toxins.  You put all that together and it just doesn't get any better.  Since ti comes in powder form, you have to hydrate it with a liquid of your choice.  I have tried this in two different ways...with water & with my Radha Beauty Rosehip Oil (see above).  Hands down, my favorite is with the rosehip oil, because I feel like it is working double duty to remove toxins and provide moisture all at the same time!  Did I mention it also smells so yummy???  It's almost like an earthy chocolate scent...delicious!
