I already shared The Best of 2020 Makeup, not it’s The Best of 2020 Skincare! Trust me, this wasn’t easy. I loved A LOT of products in 2020 but I honed in on the ones that I see myself repurchasing over and over. Some of them I’ve already repurchased a few times.
This year was truly the year of skincare for me. I became a lot more proactive with my routine and a lot more selective in the products I reached for. I don’t know about you, but I want products that work and all the products on my list are ones that I have actually experienced an improvement.
The Best Eye Creams
I’ve said it a few times but I’ll say it again for those new around here…I am PICKY with eye products. I get milia pretty easily and thicker products are typically a no no for me. I’ve found my holy grails this year and have watched my under eyes improve so much. Dermalogica’s Biolumin C Eye Serum blew me away and really stands out as a favorite.
The Best Body Care
Looking back, I always neglect my fav body products in my roundups. I don’t know why! Body care is just as important as skincare. This year I’ve paid a lot more attention to the skin on my body and trust me, it makes a difference
The Best Facial Oils
I love me a good facial oil even though I can’t smother myself with them anymore. I have to stay away from my t-zone with the oils these days but it doesn’t stop me from enjoying them. I look for oils that aren’t heavy that absorb well. A good facial oil can make you feel like a million dollars.
The Best Treatment Serums
I love Vit C and it shows. I use it every morning and like to rotate products because they are all different in their own ways. I’ve really branded out into lactic acids this year too and I’m glad. My skin loves lactic and it’s a great anti aging acid. At the beginning of the year I was really wish washy with my treatment serums and didn’t use any one product consistently. I made a vow to myself once I opened a bottle, I need to finish and I’m glad I did. I’ve found some of my favs because I actually gave them time to do their magic.
The Best Cleansers
Cleansers have always been meh to me. I’m never really impressed or feel any type of way with new ones. Dermalogica has been a fav for a while and I always find myself going back to the Special Cleansing Gel. I discovered Derma E’s Cleansing Balm and holy heck it’s so good. So nourishing and perfect for a first cleanse after a day of wearing makeup.
The Best Toners
Toners are something I didn’t always believe in until this year when I started using P50. I can honestly say it is 100% worth every penny. It has helped my skin so much and I will forever have it in my routine. I’ve been incorporating more mists into my daily routines too and have been surprised by how much I love them.
The Best Moisturizers
To be honest, I never really used moisturizer on a normal basis until this year. I’d use SPF and oils. I never felt like I got what I needed from a moisturizer and I hated how my makeup would sit after using one in my morning routine. I’m a sucker for sleeping masks and always have been though. It’s odd how our skins needs change over time! This year I found quite a few moisturizers that I love and my skin has been thanking me.
The Best Masks
Ah, masking. I didn’t mask for a few months this year for some odd reason and I felt it. I love a good face mask to complete my self care Sundays. I was always confused as to what mask would work best for my combo skin and finally I figured it out. All three of my fav masks from 2020 are new to me. The Dermalogica mask is by far a fav, it’s exfoliating yet moisturizing. The Ole Pore Plunge took Instagram by storm when it first launched but I was late to the game. It’s super refreshing and makes my skin feel absolutely amazing. Phat Glow is another one I took my time on and I don’t think my routine will go without it.
