2018 has been one for the books in terms of skincare. I dabbled in beauty for a bit at the beginning of the year, buying products here and there, researching brands, but the ultimate push came this summer with my internship at InStyle magazine. I came back to Atlanta with knowledge of the magazine industry and a suitcase full of beauty products. Below are a few of my top picks from 2018 that I’ll definitely be using in 2019.
First Aid Beauty
Skin Rescue Acne Clearing Charcoal Cleanser w/ Probiotics
My absolute favorite face wash! I’m a sucker for cream cleansers and this one contains salicylic acid also. It’s a win win!
Ultra Facial Cream
I slept on this for about a year. Once I finally tried it, I never looked back. Moisturizing is key in healthy skin, and this is my go-to.
Lip Sleeping Mask
Smells great, is very moisturizing, and lasts forever. I often use this as a regular lip balm; it has the best gloss and tinge of pink that makes it perfect for daytime wear.
Violet-C Radiance Mask
A splurge, but worth it! I always notice immediate brightness in my skin after rinsing this off.
The serum of all serums. Gives an immediate glow, and evens out your skin tone over time.
T.L.C Sukari Babyfacial
Fun fact: The donut is just for fun lol. I fell in love with this mask after the first use. I immediately noticed smoother skin, and after a few weeks of usage, my acne scars were fading away. It’s definitely worth the splurge.
