Now that Summer is technically over, I’m sharing the skincare products that I have been loving recently. This routine is also going to be helpful in the colder months. It’s a mix of products from Indie Lee, which I have used and loved for years, and Image Skincare which I started using this year and have fallen in love with.
If you are a drier skin type, this is for you! However, all the products I am sharing are perfect for all skin types, even sensitive skin.

AM/PM: Both of these cleansers are new to me and both from brands I already LOVE. I alternate depending on what I need. If I need to get rid of makeup or woke up feeling a little oily, I will reach for this Foaming Cleanser. It looks like a milky gel when you pump it out but once you apply it to wet skin, it foams up! I look like Mrs. Doubtfire when she smashes her face in the cake. The other one I love for mornings when I want something calming and hydrating is this Soothing Cleanser. It smells like a spa. I absolutely love this cleanser to start my day.
AM/PM: My tried and true CO-Q10 Toner is a must for me, year-round. It’s going to soothe and hydrate your skin with ingredients like cucumber, chamomile, aloe vera and hyaluronic acid (my favorite). I have been using this toner for about 3-4 years now, nothing compares.
AM: Typically, I go in with a serum for extra hydration before my moisturizer. But this Balancing Biopeptide Creme does an incredible job of nourishing moisture-depleted skin. I have tried so many moisturizers and this one is by far the best. It is on the pricer side. I typically like to stay under $50 for skincare but it’s truly worth every penny. I will be on the hunt for a more affordable alternative.
PM: I typically just skip to my PM oil.
AM: Another new-to-me product is the Daily Vitamin Infusion. I love adding this oil because it helps with moisture retention and aides in diminishing the appearance fine lines and winkles. It will not leave you feeling or looking greasy. If you don’t need the extra help w/moisture or wrinkles, feel free to skip this step.
PM: Squalane Oil is something that I will always include in my skincare routine. I’ve been wearing this at night but can definitely be used during the day since it will also not leave you greasy.
We can all agree that just because summer is over, doesn’t mean we are putting away our sunscreen… right? Okay, good! I alternated between two this summer. This Tinted Mineral Sunscreen Stick is so easy to use! I love it for minimal makeup days when I just want to even out my complexion. I also of course have to mention my favorite Tinted Sunscreen from Elta MD. Both play well under foundation.
AM/PM: Last but not least is my new favorite Lip Enhancement Complex. I have also tried many lip treatments and lip oils but this one is so hydrating and comfortable on the lips. Yes, this is better that the Laneige Lip Sleep Mask. There, I said it and this product deserves more hype around it. I wear this mainly at night or as a treatment before I wear a bold lip.
That’s it! Quick and easy, will take you under 5 minutes. I’ll keep using these products into winter and probably adding a few other steps as needed. Let me know if there is a skincare product you have been loving lately! If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment or DM me on IG.
