  • First up, the thing everyone first sees about you, your face! First, and very important, is cleansing daily and what you're using to cleanse. Always make sure that your hands are clean when you start, or are using a clean cloth/sponge/etc! If it's dirty, it pretty much defeats the purpose, right? I love these konjac facial sponges personally, they're easy to use and store and they are suited for every skin need. Bonus: they have full size ones for your body too! Not only are they great for clear skin, but they gently exfoliate too. 😊 (Gentle enough for daily use, so no worries there either!)

    Ingredients: Purified Water, Konjac Powder, & Bamboo Charcoal Powder
  • To use your sponge: let it absorb warm water until it's about double in size. You can use it with or without cleanser, I like to cleanse first and then put a little drop on the sponge and cleanse again. They are effective in removing makeup, even around the eye area! Just gently scrub in small circles for at least a minute, when you're done, rinse it out good and gently squeeze excess water out. They have a handy little string so that you can easily hang it to dry! Make sure you don't skip the last step, if it doesn't dry it won't last as long and can get filled with bacteria. 😱

  • On to cleansers! There's a little something for everyone, and they're tried and approved. 😊

    -NERD Clarifying Cleanser.
    This stuff is fantastic if you experience breakouts, want a deep clean and bright skin! Personally, I think it's better suited for younger skin. Get a great clean without drying out your skin!

    -PUR by LAFACE.
    This stuff smells and feels incredible! It's a toning face wash, which makes your routine a little easier and shorter. I skip toners altogether when I use this cleanser! I love how gentle this one is and it makes my skin feel great. This one is best for more mature skin!

  • NERD has a wonderful creamy consistency that feels very moisturizing, although it's great for acne prone skin, it doesn't dry your skin out at all.

    LAFACE turns into an amazing foam when mixed with a little water. It feels luxurious the second it's on your hands and you can feel the deep clean right away.

    As far as removing makeup, LAFACE is the only one that really worked for me. NERD is so creamy that it seemed to just push/smudge my makeup around so I'd use a gentle cleanser to remove my makeup first and then use it. LAFACE takes two washes to get it all, but is safe even around the eyes!

  • I like to use makeup remover wipes now to remove most of my makeup before I get in the shower, and then I use the cleansers afterwards. It just makes life a lot easier and then I don't have to worry about getting it all off or having raccoon eyes when I open the shower curtain. (Scary stuff, I know!)

    Fun fact: you can mix a little sugar in with PUR to make it a scrub! I haven't tried it yet but I like doing scrubs once a week to exfoliate and get all the junk off my face. 😋

  • After a good cleanse, (and a pat down with a clean dry cloth!) it's time to tone. I found a natural toner that I can use every day, (unless I'm using PUR) but depending on your skin type, you may want to do it every other day. Toners are important for clear, even skin! They help bring your skin back to it's natural pH, which in turn, keeps your skin happy and will keep it from over/under producing oils to compensate from being too dry or too oily. In that sense, it helps keep breakouts at bay too, since that is a big factor in why you're breaking out!

  • Hydrating Facial Toner

    This refreshing light toner will clean and clear your pores, while infusing your skin with moisture. aloe vera, green tea, sea kelp and algae work synergistically to renew your skin. Apply after cleansing and before using any other skin care product or make-up.
  • I use Zaaina's Aloe + Tea Tree and it is my favorite! It smells fantastic and it's effective but gentle. Im not crazy about applying my toners straight from the bottle with a cotton pad so, I got a small spray bottle and I dump it in that as needed. It's gentle enough even for the most sensitive skin!
    Balanced Guru has a great one too but I could only use it every other day, since it was too drying for daily use. It smells and works really well, my skin was very clear! I think that it'd be a great match for someone with more oily skin.
    Both would suit all skin types! (Depending on sensitivity)

    Fade dark spots, blemish marks, unwanted freckles and sun damage with this nourishing + brightening oil. Vitamin C from Organic pomegranate oil, grapefruit oil and lemon peel brightening skin naturally, while glabridin from organic licorice and natural arbutin from bearberry extract work hard to prevent and dissipate hyper pigmentation in the skin. Lightly moisturizing and fragranced with jasmine, SHINE is the perfect spot treatment, face oil (day or night), UV protectant and makeup primer.
  • After you tone, it's time to apply your serums. I have three that I use interchangeably as needed, seeing as one is better for moisture, one is better for acne related issues and the third is just a nice basic one that I like to use every day. 

    -Yuni Active Calm Face Serum
    This stuff is incredibly lightweight and really works to sooth any irritation I experience. It smells great and is effective in firming and soothing your skin.

    -NERD Acne Treatment
    This is fantastic for breakouts! I take a few drops and apply them to problem areas and within a day or two, the problem clears up. It's amazing!

  • -Shine Brightening Face Oil
    This stuff has become a new staple in my routine! It can be used for many different things and really could stand alone as a moisturizer but I use it as a serum. I like to drop one drop on each finger and evenly tap it everywhere, even gently under my eyes. Not only does it smell great, but it works to brighten up dark spots, moisturize and fade old scars!

    Lately I've been needing more moisture than acne care so I apply Shine where it's needed, give it a few minutes to absorb and then use two pumps of Yuni. My skin is bright, moisturized, and not a breakout in sight!

  • Don't forget to moisturize your eyes! The eyes are a very sensitive area and for that reason, it's best to use a cream specifically for the eye area. Not only that, but eye creams are formulated to target certain issues (like wrinkles, dark circles, etc!) and help to repair or fix them.

    This eye cream by LAFACE is spectacular! Not only does it do a great job at moisturizing, but it's also helped to fade my stubborn dark circles too. I have a few fine lines that I've noticed are almost gone since I started using Beaux Yeux, this stuff is incredible!

  • Finally, we've come to the last step, moisturizing. This very important step shouldn't be forgotten! This is sealing in all the hard work you've done for gorgeous skin.

    -NERD Nourishing Cream
    This stuff is so moisturizing, and works well with the rest of the set to help clear up and keep acne at bay. Gentle enough for sensitive skin but effective in it's cause!

    -CRC Cellular Regeneration Cream
    This stuff is just plain luxurious. It has Swiss Apple stem cells in it and is a great anti-aging cream! It's deeply moisturizing too and effective in clearing up stubborn eczema spots, along with scarring!

  • Once every week or two, you should treat your skin to a masque! Not only will it help your skin, but it will help your spirit. It's always nice to do something nice for yourself! Kick it up a notch and add a warm bubble bath with some Epsom salt and a candle and make it a spa day! Run your bath, pour some wine or make some tea, apply your facial and relax in the tub. Doesn't that sound wonderful? I love doing it on the weekends. 😊 Before you do your masque, make sure you cleanse, and exfoliate (unless it's an exfoliation masque!) then continue your normal routine after you rinse the masque.

  • -Balanced Guru's Calming Masque
    I absolutely love the smell and feel of anything I've tried by BG, and the masque is no different! Bonus: to stretch this amazing product even further, I mix mine with bentonite clay. Boosts it's effectiveness and makes my skin feel so amazing and clean!

    -BorbĂłn No 01 Revitalizing Facial
    This coffee exfoliation masque is easily one of my top 5 favorite things in life. I promise you, if you try it, it will be in yours too! First off, it exfoliates for you. Who doesn't like a multitasker? Second, the smell. Incredible! I LOVE how this makes my skin look and feel.

  • -NĂźgg
    An amazing line that makes it easy for anyone to figure out what they need for their skin type, and they have whatever anyone could possibly need! Their masques come in little packs that are individually portioned for your facial. You can get specific ones or you can get variety packs more specified to certain skin problems. I like every one I've tried so far!

    If you use fingers to apply, make sure they're clean! I use a facial brush, I love it because it smooths my product on evenly, but you can use a fan brush and achieve the same effect. 😊 Leave them on for 10-20 and rinse well! Easy!

  • Let's not forget the rest of your skin! Whether you need a good soap, a scrub to get you beach ready or some lotion that'll make your skin sexy and smooth, it's all here!

    Starting with soap, my current favorite is The Healing Tree's green tea soap! Not only is it deep cleaning, (would be especially fantastic for your gym/yoga/outdoors session!) but green tea is great for your skin! It's also good for soothing sun burns, in case that unfortunate situation happens to you this year. It doesn't have much of a smell either, making it especially good for those of us with sensitive skin!

    Why is it called Bamboo Vinegar?

    It's called bamboo vinegar mainly because it is considered a pyrolegnic acid that contains up to 400 organic compounds, which allows it to draw and remove waste from your skin. It's not the same as normal vinegar as Bamboo Vinegar is produced through the natural act of carbonization, which occurs when bamboo is heated in an airless container during a bamboo charcoal firing process. The vapors that come from this become condensed and cooled down to produce the bamboo vinegar.

    Does it smell like vinegar?

    No, unlike normal vinegar, Bamboo Vinegar has a smoky scent rather than tangy scent that's found in normal vinegar in household cleaning products.

  • Don't have time to shower? No worries! Yuni has a few different waterless options and they are fantastic. 😊 These would be great for a camping or fishing trip, anything where you won't have access to water but need to freshen up! If you're out of time in the morning or your friends want to go out at the last minute, never fear, with these no one will know the difference. These make cleaning up a breeze!

  • Once a week you should do a full body exfoliation. Not only does it feel amazing, but it's great for your skin because it helps to remove dead skin and clear out your pores! If you want perfect beach ready skin, look no further than these!

    -Yuni's Smoothing Body Scrub
    Definitely the more gentle of the two! I love how this makes my skin look. Even though it's more gentle, it's very effective! Great for sensitive skin.

    -Red Flower Ohana Gingergrass Bamboo Scrub
    The smell alone will change your life. This stuff is really gritty, it has an awesome texture, and makes your skin feel so smooth. Love it!

  • And finally it's time to moisturize! Definitely the most important in my mind. If you need something lightweight, something more moisturizing or an amazing hand cream, check these out!

    -Hydrating Body Conditioner
    Lightweight lotion, which makes it great for summer, but still provides a ton of moisture, great for any skin type!

    -All Purpose Body Balm
    This stuff is especially great for any especially dry, problem areas. It's a deep moisturizer but doesn't add the weight of one to your skin! Great for elbows, knees and feet. Anyone could use this stuff!

  • -Rejuvenating Hand Cream
    Seriously the best hand cream I've used! I'm very excited about this one because most hand creams I try irritate my sensitive skin. My hands get blotchy and itchy and really red. I have eczema and contact dermatitis on both hands and this stuff almost seems to improve it, which I've never had happen. Bottom line is, it's great!

    In the travel kit, you can get testers of the hand cream and the body conditioner. The travel kit is a great thing to purchase to try out some of Yuni's amazing products! 😊
