new year. new skincare.

I thought I would kick off the first full week of the year with new favorites of mine. To continue this trend, I wanted to share a few of my favorite skin care products that I use religiously, if not every day for most. 

Recently, I decided to make the switch to all paraben free products. My mom convinced me as she has been paraben free for quite some time. After reading many articles on the benefits of going paraben free, and the crazy amounts of chemicals that go into skincare products and makeup I knew I needed to make a change. However, with the change meant saying "farewell" to some of my most loved long-time used products.

Anyway, I'm getting off on a tangent. Here's what I've been using recently and have loved the results! Not to mention, they are much better for you!
FAB Facial Cleanser
I am working on my third tube of this stuff and swear by it for evening skin tone and amazing at makeup removal!
Resurfacing Mask - I swear by this weekly!
This stuff is slightly pricey as far as face masks go, but its worth every cent! I had the same jar for over a year and used it weekly! Your skin will thank you!
Arcona Toning Pads

An absolute must for travel! 
VaniCream Body Moisturizer

You seriously cannot beat the price for the amount with this stuff. A friend recommended it to me and ever since using, my skin has been so incredibly soft! It absorbs quickly and doesn't leave that greasy feeling.

One of the hardest parts for me was finding makeup that had good coverage but also was sans parabens. Enter Tarte Amazonian Clay. Ya'll I swear by this stuff! It has a light whipped texture, doesn't cake on AND is good for you?! Sold.

What Paraben free products can you not live without?
