Best of 2017: Skincare Edition

We’re back with another Best of 2017 – this time, it’s the skincare edition. Read on for what caught my eye this year… there may even be a few surprises!

  1. Night Cleanser: The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Oil is still one of my go-to night cleansers, but I recently discovered the Shu Uemura Ultime8 Sublime Beauty Cleansing Oil, which is giving The Body Shop a run for its money.
  2. Day Cleanser: This year was the year of Glossier, so it’s no wonder that my top day cleanser is their Milky Jelly Cleanser.
  3. Serum: Not pictured because I recently ran out of it, but the Ole Henriksen Truth Serum has been what I keep going back to.
  4. Face Moisturizer: Belif’s The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb (and even their lighter Aqua Bomb) have quickly become staples in my daily skincare routine.
  5. Oil: If you know me at all you know I love facial oils, and one that’s definitely put in the time this year is MV Organic’s Daily Soother Booster.
  6. Eye Cream: Another recent purchase that has made it’s way to holy grail status is Saturday Skin’s Wide Awake Brightening Eye Cream. I mean come on, look at that bottle.
  7. Face Mask: I’ve still been loving Charlotte Tilbury’s Goddess Skin Clay Mask, but something I picked up this year that I’ve been loving is Ren’s Evercalm Ultra Comforting Rescue Mask – it’s perfect for my sensitive, red skin.
  8. Toner: Darphin Intral Toner has found its way back in to my favourites again this year – so that’s no surprise.
  9. Exfoliator:  Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Sensitive is still what I’ve been using on my face, but for lips, I’ve been loving the Milani Keep it Sweet Sugar Lip Scrub.
  10. Body Wash: The L’Occitane Cleansing And Softening Shower Oil with Almond Oil is still definitely a holy grail cleanser, but lately I’ve been eyeing up the Glossier Body Hero Daily Oil Wash – have you tried it? Should I!?
  11. Body Scrub: Something I actually received as a gift, but the formula and scent is to die for, is the Fields of Ambrosia Whipped Salt Scrub in Morrocan Sandalwood.



I don’t typically include haircare in these round ups, but there have been two items that have just been blowing my mind this year that I felt the need to mention them. Those are Klorane’s Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk, and Dry Bar’s Sparkling Soda Shine Mist, of course. If you haven’t given these a try, I definitely recommend you do.

Any skincare (or haircare) products make the cut for you this year? Let me know what I should try in 2018, in the comments below!
