BEST OF BEAUTY 2017: SKINCARE

What. A. Year!

IMG_3434.jpg

2017 I’d say was the year of a lot of skincare discoveries. Not just my own curiosity and purchases, but some awesome opportunities to try products to review from PR samples. It also helped having a significant other use products as well so I can go through them faster!

From the past year, the skincare products I am mentioning in this post are the standouts. Like when I think about them and use them, it gives me the happy feels and I never want them to run out.

I tried my best to find a product under every possible category of skincare, but a girl can only mention so much until the happy feels disappear, and I don’t want to mention a product for the sake of filling in the category of a possible skincare item. And also, some of the categories may have more than one product mentioned teehehehee.

For those curious of my skin type:

  • Dry
  • Dehydrated
  • Can get oily by end of the daily
  • Acne-prone
  • Used to be super oily-skinned

Skin concerns:

  • Prevent & Prolong (preventative aging)
  • Acne
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Indented post-acne markers (lighter than deeply pitted marks)

Before reading up on this kit, I must point out that my skin has been around the block. And I mean, I went from oily af to chapped skin in a matter of a couple of years. If you are any skin type, my skin has probably been in your category at one point. Hopefully I provide enough info to cover concerns for all skin concerns, but for right now, mine are acne-prone and dry.
