My favorite skincare products right now

I think I do an update of this post a couple of times a year and many of the products stay the same – the tried & true that I just don’t venture away from and when I do, regret right away only to return. I do have a couple of new things to talk about though, so I’ll just show you the whole lot below and talk about the couple of things I really like.

Skincare 2018 - anamika.caI’m keeping it simple – as simple as I can but effective. Not photographed here (I realized after the fact) is my trusty Purity 3-in-1 cleanser from Philosophy.

SK II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion - anamika.caThis SK II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion is all the hype among beauty gurus everywhere. Thing is, SK II is very expensive and I don’t have the entire line. I did try out the face masks for a while (until I ran out) and those were AMAZING. So I decided to give this clear lotion a try. You dab it on with a cotton ball or your fingers on clean skin. Let it dry and continue on with moisturizing. I love how my skin feels after I put it on and half a bottle later, I am just starting to see what the beauty gurus have been talking about. Velvety smooth skin. Now I still get the monthly zit or two, my very reliable PMS indicators. But even so, my skin just feels delightful. I’m going to keep going with this bottle and then decide whether to keep buying it.

Boscia Enlivening Amino AG Eye Treatment Gel - anamika.caThis Boscia eye gel was serendipitous. Sometime in mid-2017 my friend received a big PR stash of Boscia products and let me try this one out. Since then I’ve only been using this eye product twice a day. The skin around my eyes feels great. As an added bonus – this tiny bottle lasts a very long time.

The remaining products in my skincare routine, I’ve talked about before – here, here and here. These are my tried and true products that I have been using for years now. So check out those posts if you want to know more.
