7 new skincare products I'm loving

I feel like I am long overdue for a skincare post! Within the last month or two, I’ve introduced a few new skincare products into my routine that I have been loving. My main routine is still primarily drunk elephant…but I’ve added in a few new things here and there that have been excellent additions!


Skinceuticals purifying cleanser gel – Okay, I could almost do an entire post about the Skinceuticals brand alone because I am obsessed with SO many of their products. (Their C E Ferulic serum is a game CHANGER). I am very particular about my cleansers, and this one has become a new favorite for me, especially if my face is battling more breakouts than usual (thank you pregnancy!). I rotate between this cleanser or the Drunk Elephant beste cleanser morning and night. I love this one because it has glycolic acid in it so it gently exfoliates your skin, but it’s still conditioning at the same time.

Skinceuticals clarifying clay mask – I started using this mask about once a week, probably 1 month ago. It helps unclog your pores, remove impurities, and balance oil production. I think it helps prevent breakouts because its clearing out your pores, and it also leaves your face feeling so soft!

Colleen Rothschild beauty water (20% off with code LKS20) – This is an alcohol free face toner I use morning and night, after I cleanse, before applying my serums. I also use this right when I get off the plane to give my skin a boost of hydration! It has coconut water, hyaluronic acid, and watermelon extract which keep your cells plumped with moisture for up to 24 hours, so skin appears smooth and youthful! One spritz of this instantly makes my face feel refreshed and toned!

Colleen Rothschild mandelic acid radiance serum (20% off with code LKS20) – To be honest, I just added this one to my routine a few nights ago so I can’t quite speak to the results yet. But I am SUPER excited about it and wanted to share with y’all today. I’ve been applying this at night, after I cleanse and then tone with the above beauty water. I’m really excited about it though because mandelic acid promotes cellular turnover, which addresses photo-aging, fine lines, acne, dark spots and overall skin texture. So, it kind of seems like liquid gold TBH haha. I will keep y’all posted on the results but so far I’m really liking it! I’m hoping it will help with some of these hormonal breakouts!

Paula’s Choice pore clarifying charcoal gel mask – I love this mask because it helps unclog your pores without drying your skin out! This is the only charcoal gel mask I’ve ever used, and I love it because the charcoal gel actually attracts oil and skin impurities like a magnet so they can be rinsed away, leaving pores less congested and visibly minimized. Since this mask isn’t drying at all, you can really use it as often as you need! I’ve also been loving the Paula’s Choice rehydrating moisture mask for whenever my face feels dry! It’s great for after a long flight or travel day!

Drunk elephant C-Tango eye cream – hands down my favorite eye cream I have ever used. I love it because it’s brightening which I definitely need under my eyes. It has antioxidants in it, soothing actives, and a few other ingredients all designed to refresh and restore a radiant appearance for your eyes! Also, a little bit goes a long way, so this bottle will last you months.

Tula aqua infusion oil free gel (20% off with code LAURENSIMS) – This isn’t necessarily a new product for me (see my post about it here) but I’ve really been loving it lately, with all the flights we’ve been on. I apply this after I cleanse, tone, serum, before my moisturizer. It is SO hydrating and feels like it’s quenching my skin’s thirst haha. It also works as a primer for underneath your makeup!

Have you guys tried any of these out? Let me know if you’re as obsessed as I am in the comments below! Thanks for reading!
