Happy New Year! I'm very excited to share my green beauty skincare favorites of 2018 with you all! I haven't had much time to blog (as you can probably tell) or take photos for Instagram. I guess this will be a little catch up between you & my skin.

Here are my favorites, pictured from left to right:

1. Pratima Cucumber Aqua Gel, $40
  • For someone with extremely sensitive skin, it's quite hard to find a moisturizer that works that isn't an oil. I've talked about this jelly moisturizer previously in my skincare staples blog post and will continue to talk about this because it's amazing for my acne-prone complexion (yay to no breakouts!). It's made with a total of 8 ingredients that deliver a cooling layer of hydration. During the summer I can get away with using this as my sole moisturizer. Highly recommend if you're oily to combo. Great for layering on top of other moisturizers if you're normal to dry.
  • This is the first time I've showed this all-natural Japanese skincare item on my blog! Before green beauty, I was an avid user of Japanese + Korean beauty. So glad to find a truly non-toxic Japanese brand! The scrub is made of 1 single ingredient: Azuki red bean. It buffs away dead skin cells, enhances glow, promotes even skin tone and texture, and unclogs pores. Effective yet gentle enough for daily use.
3. Evanhealy Rose Geranium HydroSoul, $29.95
  • Dreaming of a balanced, even-toned complexion? Look no further. I've tried a bunch of rose toners but this one is not like the rest. It's copper distilled at lower temperatures which means you'll get better results, faster. This balances my combination skin, calms redness, and reduces uneven skin tone. When I stopped using this to test another toner for ~2 weeks, I started seeing discoloration and unevenness on my left cheek—but lesson learned because I'm never cheating on this product ever again.
  • If there's one product that I owe all of my glow to, it's got to be this facial oil. It smells like a heavenly rose garden and sinks into the skin like a dream. It doesn't irritate or cause my skin to break out. I add the Pratima Cucumber Aqua Gel on top of this and wake up to smooth, plump skin the next morning. I also pair it with my new favorite gua sha tool, The Lanshin Pro by Sandra Lanshin Chiu, to stimulate blood circulation and depuff.

Have you tried any of these green beauty goodies? I'd love to hear what your favorite skincare products are!
