Best Cleansers:

Dior La Mousse OFF/ON Foaming Face Cleanser is one of the most gentle cleansers that removes everything at once.

Kiehls Ultra Facial Cleanser is something new I got to try. It is a nice gentle and it lathers up creamy on the skin.

Best Facial Essence/Toner

Cle de Peau Hydro-Softening Lotion is by far one of the best essences for dry skin. It’s nourishing and hydrating as well as it comforts skin from dryness.

Fresh Kombucha Antioxidant Facial Treatment Essence This one is the most hydrating and soothing essence I’ve ever used.

Kiehls Ferulic Brew Facial Treatment Essence with Lactic Acid This is a nice brightening solution that not only adds extra hydration – it helps brighten up any discoloration on the skin.

Origins Dr. Andrew Weil for Origin Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion is one of the best soothing essences especially when you have very sensitive skin.

Best Serums/Moisturizers

Sulwahsoo Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Serum & Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Cream both are perfect luxury duos for nourished and young-looking skin. No skincare product makes me feel good about my skin than this one. Pure love!!

Glow Recipe Plum Plum Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum is a good on-the-go plumping serum. Works great under the foundation.

Guerlain Abeille Royale Double R Renew & Repair Advanced Serum is a game changer in your skincare routine. This has helped my skin not only look smoother and plumper but it helps reduce the look of fine lines and discolouration.

Drunk Elephant C-Firma Fresh Vitamin-C Day Serum is an effective vitamin C serum, with quite an impressive formula.
Lancome just introduced a new addition to their Rénergie line – the Rénergie H.P.N. 300-Peptide Anti-Aging Cream. I’ve been a long-time lover of their Rénergie H.C.F. Triple Serum. I was excited to find this new addition. The énergie H.P.N. 300-Peptide Anti-Aging Cream is a hydrating and anti-aging cream that is infused with hyaluronic acid, 300 peptides & niacinamide that helps with the sagging of the skin and dark spots. The formula is rich but gets into the skin immediately – it doesn’t feel heavy at all. It is a very powerful formula and I find you can see results much quicker by using it with its serum. I love that the packaging is refillable.


Drunk Elephant Baybay T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial™ AHA + BHA Mask & Bouncy Brightfacial Brightening Mask with 10% Azelaic Acid + 1% Salicylic Acid both are the best facial masks. They are a little intense but work great.

Sulwhasoo White Ginseng Radiance Refining Mask is one of the most amazing facial masks I’ve ever used. It is very easy to use and leaves the skin beautiful.

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow AHA Night Treatment is one of the best pick-me-up masks that is nourishing and you wake up with the most beautiful skin.

Shiseido Vital Perfection Uplifting and Firming Express Eye Mask is one of the best anti-aging sheet masks. They’re filled with goodness and smooth out fine lines.

Lancome Advanced Génifique Hydrogel Melting Mask is one of the best sheet masks that immediately adds radiance and glow to the skin and blurs out fine lines.

Sun Protection

Cle de Peau Beauty Protective UV Cream SPF 50+ is one of the recent discoveries that will soon share a full review but this one is quite Luxurious! it’s a tube with goodness…

Shiseido Urban Environment Vita-Clear Sunscreen Broad-Spectrum SPF 42 with Vitamin C – I’ve always been a lover of Shiseido sun protection formulas. Yet, there is a newer and better version that helps brighten the skin at the same time.

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sunscreen SPF 50 This one has everything you need for sun protection except it doesn’t wear well under the foundation – it’s a perfect one on bare skin day.

Best in Haircare

Kerastase Genesis Anti Hair-Fall Fortifying Blow-dry Fluid is my all-time favourite heat protection when I use hot tools.

Kerastase Resistance Heat Protecting Leave-In Treatment for Split Ends has been one of my favourite products to style my hair especially when I style my hair naturally.

Kerastase Elixir Ultime Hydrating Hair Oil Serum is the best hair oil to add shine and protect the hair from the harsh climate.

Fable and Mane HoliRoots™ Pre-wash Hair Treatment Oil is the best hair oil for your scalp to help with hair growth and healthy-looking hair.
