As the weather becomes warmer, it is important to keep skin clean, refreshed and hydrated. Treating skin well will keep it soft and smooth during the warm seasons ahead.
I have been loving the following cleansers, scrubs and serums:
Aroma Actives Cleansing and Soothing Milk ($12 USD) — A gentle and effective cleanser designed to lift impurities and gently remove make-up. A light, non-greasy formula infused with the soothing and softening properties of Aloe Vera, Cucumber, Milk Thistle and Chamomile, leaving skin calm, supple and clean. Suitable for all skin types, particularly dry, sensitive skin.
What I think: This is a gentle cleanser that is nice for every day. And even though it is gentle, it removes make-up well! I is creamy and has a mild herbal scent.

Orico London Micellar Water ($24 USD) — Aromatherapy skin detox. New 3-in-1 purifying micellar water to instantly cleanse away toxins, eliminate impurities and make-up for radiant, clear and younger looking skin. Antioxidant Vitamin C stimulates collagen production and strengthens the skin’s barrier whilst soothing Calendula Flower Extract and Amino Acids help boost cell regeneration, hydrate and smooth. An invigorating blend of natural Tangerine & Orange essential oils helps boost skin circulation and detoxify skin.
What I think: LOVE! It has a fresh citrus scent and is so refreshing. I like to use it at night on a cotton pad. It removes my makeup and leaves skin clean and toned! Plus, it doesn’t dry at all. This is a really neat idea for a multi-tasking product!

This bright and cheery purifying wash will also help in minimizing the look of pores. And give you the glowiest, clearest skin you have ever seen. The gentle fresh smell of citrus is also invigorating, specially in the morning when you are trying to get up and go.
Joanna Vargas Daily Serum ($85 for 1 fl. oz.) — The Joanna Vargas Daily Serum is an ideal combination of skin brightening elements, rich antioxidants and vitamins required for younger-looking skin. This lightweight serum moisturizes perfectly and improves firmness and elasticity so it bounces back.
What I thin: The face wash has a wonderful citrus scent and is so refreshing! It cleanses my skin without drying it out.
The serum is very light and sinks right into my skin. It leaves my skin glowing and soft. After using it for a couple of weeks I have noticed that my skin is smoother and a bit tighter. I am excited to continue using it to see what results I will see.

LovelySkin Pore Refining Pumpkin Mask ($40 USD) — This nourishing mask has a self-warming formula that deeply cleanses skin with minerals, enzymes and vitamins. It also helps to reduce pore size, moisturize skin and improve its appearance.
LovelySkin C-Stem 7 Solutions Serum ($110 USD) — C-Stem is an exceptional rejuvenating vitamin C serum that contains Lilac Stem Cells. C-Stem combats signs of visible skin aging, diminishes the appearance of nose to mouth creases, and brightens skin tone. The formula reactivates 14 genes that are responsible for the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, and helps to reduce the accelerated aging protein Progerin.
What I think: The mask is amazing. You massage it in to dry skin and it gets very warm. Then add a little water, lather it and rinse. It gets rid of the surface dry skin and all of the junk hiding in your pores. So good!
The serum absorbs right into the skin and leaves it soft and glowing. I’ve noticed that my fine lines seem less noticeable and my skin tone is more even. I have only used it for a few weeks at night, so I will keep using it in hopes to see even more great results!
