Ouestion: What are the best skin care products to buy online?
Who doesn’t love this time of the year? I know I do. With the vacations on the roll and kicking back at the beach, summers are probably the best season. To keep it that way, only thing you need to make room for your new friends in front of the mirror. Here the best skin care products which are the most recommended online in 2017.
Here’s the thing (and I’m sure a lot of you women out there share similar sentiments) – the sun isn’t exactly kind to your skin. On top of that, if you happen to live in a humid area like I do, you probably experience nasty acne breakouts this season as well.
The good news is the beauty industry has blessed us with tons of wonderful skincare products to survive the summer season. So, if you haven’t started taking care of your skin yet, it’s high time that you do. To help you out with that, here’s a list of some of the best skin care products of 2017 hand-picked and researched by yours truly.
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen (US $11.24)
You just can’t start your skin-care routine without a dose of top quality sunscreen.
As a sufferer of genetic Melasma who has been told countless times by dermatologists to use a high-SPF sunscreen, I’ve tried plenty of them in the past few years. Believe it or not, I used to think they were BS and a waste of my money. That was until I stumbled about the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer sunscreen.
Neutrogena has built a pretty solid reputation in the cosmetics market so it’s not surprise it’s one of Amazon’s Choice products and a sunscreen that has genuinely improved my skin.
This sunscreen has a SPF value of 45 and is broad-spectrum (protects against both UVA and UVB rays). It’s a powerful sunscreen against sunburns and tans, and is definitely affordable as well. The best part about it is that it doesn’t wear your skin down or make it look greasy like a lot of other sunscreens do.
Origins High-Potency Night-A-Mins Renewal Cream (US $44.99)
Okay, I admit it – I like to spend a lot of money on creams. Guilty as charged. But really, if you think about it: doesn’t your skin deserve it?
Origins’ High-Potency Night-A-Mins Mineral-Enriched Renewal Cream might hit you straight in the wallet but it’s a pretty great purchase anyway. The formula is specially designed for more oily skin types and in the summer, everyone gets oily skin. The renewal cream is enriched with Vitamin C, E and H and a lot of different essential oils.
Simply apply it before you go to bed at night and notice the difference in your skin immediately! I myself felt my skin was much more hydrated and moisturized on the first night of application.
Yes, it’s expensive. Yes, it’s worth it.
Poppy Austin Pure Argan Oil (US $22.49)
There’s been a lot of debate on which Argan oil product is better – Poppy Austin or Jose Muran. I’ve tried them both and although I found them very similar but Poppy Austin won the medal for me. Probably because my skin felt much more fresh and hydrated than it did with Jose Muran.
Poppy Austin Argan Oil comes in a convenient little bottle and a dropper, and contains 100% pure Argan Oil enriched with Vitamin E. I recommend using it all around the year, not only in the summer. But since summers bring with them a lot of damage to the skin, this product is definitely something to add to your cart right now.
Oh, and it works equally well on damaged hair as well. Win-win.
Amara Organics Vitamin C Serum (US $17.95)
I’ve been a little skeptical about this Amazon Best Seller for some time but I decided to take a shot at it anyway. Results: no regrets.
The Amara Organics Vitamin C Serum worked wonders for my Melasma and seriously decreased the amount of dark spots on my skin. Its important ingredients include Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Hyaluronic Acid.
Hyaluronic Acid is great to combat wrinkles and age spots on the skin, whereas the antioxidant properties of both the added vitamins remarkably brighter your skin up. Like the Poppy Austin Argan Oil, this serum comes in a tiny little bottle and a dropper for a breezy application.
I have my own rule of thumb when buying skincare products: it works if it doesn’t have fragrance. Amara Organics face serum is fragrance-free so it’s legitimately good for the skin.
L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream (US $12)
When it comes to skincare, I don’t mean taking care of your face only. Heck, your hands are equally (if not more) important. Henceforth I bring you the best hand cream you can get in the market – L’Occitane Shea Butter.
I’m a little biased when it comes to products by L’Occitane but that’s only because they’re (hash-tag) awesome. L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream does not disappoint. It has a rich, creamy texture and contains Shea butter, almond, coconut oil and honey.
Although hand creams are more popular in the winters, but if you happen to live in a dry, hot town, you’d probably want to treat your hands to this cream.
The best part about the L’Occitance Shea Butter Hand Cream is that it not only moisturizes the skin but I actually saw it heal my hands and make them into their original baby-soft version again. You can kiss your rough, worked up hands goodbye with this Shea butter formula in no time.
O’Keeffe’s for Healthy Feet Foot Cream (US $8.88)
We’ve talked about face and hand creams but let’s not forget to give attention our beautiful feet as well. I’ve tried out a few foot creams in my life but not many. That’s probably because I didn’t even need to look for another one when I had the O’Keeffe’s foot cream.
Easily one of Amazon’s Best-Sellers, O’Keeffe’s foot cream is designed to combat dry, cracked skin and moisturize the feet. The added Allantoin – a urea-based substance – in its formula is the magic ingredient that makes your feet look fresh and soft.
I apply the cream every day before bed and honestly, you can see results in just two to three days.
